It feels like work and making art.
Sunday: I went to brunch with my parents for Father's Day. And then I worked.
Monday: I finished a tag:
Packaged up a bunch of swaps, and went to work. I picked up this book at work:
Tuesday: I finished a pocket letter:
glittery washi, glittery clothespins and some pinwheel stickers.
This cute little card came with the above swap:
I also finished a loaded envelope:
Wednesday: I went to work, went to the post office and mailed off the tag, the pocket letter, the envelope, three destash swaps, a washi swap and a sticker swap, went to the grocery store and decided they needed to retrain their baggers. My bag guy put my gallon of milk in my bag along with a bagged item and a few small items. I learned how to view Youtube on my Bluray player and watched some movies.
Thursday: I plowed through some more movies
I opened my envelope flip book:
and went to work.
Friday: I had the day off and had plans to go shopping with a friend.
We started off with a tour of her new house.
I figured out there was a Tuesday morning right across the street from the Michael's we visit. After watching everyone's YouTube videos on their Tuesday Morning purchases, I was excited to visit it. It was a very small store but still had a craft aisle. I just didn't feel like looking through all the hooks of stickers, I like that craft stores have the same sticker on a hook and aren't mixed. I'm not a big 'digger' person, I have that issue at some garage sales as well.
I spent more money on food than crafty items:
I love food, and I love when stores have different food than what I find at the grocery store, I love going to the food aisle of TJ Maxx as well.
Deliza Pastry Cream, cream filled puff pastry for $1.99, 2 Mini croissants with vanilla custard for $0.99 each, Dark chocolate sea salt pretzels for $2.99, Guylian seahorses for $2.49, a box of Exquisite cookies with chocolate for $2.99, and Messori cone snack for $0.79.
I love that no one thing I bought was more than $3 and that I didn't spend more than $20. I didn't pick up any crafting supply that was more than $1.00. I did see the a few Downton Abbey paper pads and dies, I also saw some Martha Stewart products. Mainly I like stickers and ephemera and washi. I don't have a die cutting machine, I'm not big on punches, I'm not great at using stamps. I just didn't feel like looking through all the stickers, most of them did not interest me.
Next we went across the street to Michaels, I spent less than $10 there:
Last stop of the day was Sam's Club, again, I love their food selection. I picked up these:
I got back about 7pm and watched movies the rest of the night. Somewhere during the week I figured out how to watch YouTube videos on my TV through my BluRay player, and I'm loving that.
Saturday: I went garage saleing. I didn't feel that motivated to walk a ton, or spend money, but I made myself go.
My birthday is next weekend and I'm putting some favors together for my friends, I thought I'd put the items in some mugs for them, I feel I'll be keeping that owl mug, so I think might be going to Dollar Tree this week to find a third one, I do have to go for something else anyway.
I watched a bunch of movies yesterday to finish out the day.
I also got a washi swap in the mail:
