I am about to pull the trigger on a Spellbinder's die order from a discount website. It still will be about $300. Maybe I should hold off and ask for some for Christmas?
I just received my Colorbox Reinkers in the mail. I have one of the flower shaped boxed of chalk ink. I can find all of the colors in only one place and that is the Blockheads stamp website. Why are some reinkers so hard to find? I also got one of their stamps, a victorian gaslamp post and one by Lost Coast Designs that's a Praying Angel with an arch over her. I just LOVE their steampunk stuff.
Wow, those shipping charges are crazy! Are they from another country like Austraila? Even so $81. I don't know if i would take their word for it that they'd reimburse some of the shipping costs. They should deduct before you have to pay them.
OKay I went to Mikes today and got my Oct envie goodies, my MOTM some goodies and then goodies for the bday card swap ladies for mom and me. Everything was either on sale, clearance or greatly priced.
I just need to make a few handmades for the halloween ones and get some fiber and ribbon cut for them.
I think I am going to buy one more thing for sixta and then mail it to her.
I need to make a 8x8 halloween kit for Sally's swap. she let me join in at the last minute. I will work on that later tonight.
I ordered my pal her goodies for the $10 pal swap last night and it is being mailed directly to her. They should ship it today or tomorrow.
I ran across a site called craftysteals.com and ordered almost $150 worth of stuff, they had great deals on kits. The shipping for the whole order was UPS flat rate of like $11. Some really neat stuff! This kit was less than $20
Well, my Stuff4 deal via Amazon, the shipping is not $29.78. Down a lot from $81.00 but I am still thinking that 30 bucks is high for 17 small items. It put a kink into a really awesome price on the stuff they have.
Also, if you go to their website, the prices are the same as they are here, so I still think they are trying to make up for the low price they have on Amazon with the shipping rate.
The items I have are Dylusions sprays, Goosebumps, two TH stamps, and some TH metal corners. None of which should be that heavy. This must be a UPS rate USPS priority flat rate box would be cheaper I think?
I got an awesome box today from Toni...she had me for the mostly handmade swap rnd#3 and I got totally spoiled.
She made me beautiful stick pins, 3bgs of fairy dust, matchbook card, journal boxes, fall tag, library pocket and accordian hidden journaling.
Then I got 6 pieces of lace trim, TH die frighten light, metal accents pks 2, halloween brads, MS halloween witchy treat bags, 7 sheets of 12x12 Graphic 45 Proper Gentlemen paper, K&CO Dies, bling and jewelry cord.
I was bad and bidded on some more beads and won and currently ahead on this cute stamp set. Some were 50 and others were 100pcs.
I won three auctions, bought 4 sets of buy it now beads all like 100pcs in each set. and 450 round headed multi-colored stick pins.
All these goodies for like $21 total...great deal.
Went to mikes and got Sixta her last gift, not posting what it is here..lol. I also picked up two 7 gypsies cling stamp sets that were $4.99 and got them for 40% off. I also bought a Spooky Owl set for $1.99, then got a Iris Plastic storage case in this pretty blue for 40% off, and then bought 4 mini plastic storage containers that were $1.49 a piece or 1.99 a piece for 40% off. Spent $19.97 on all the stuff I bought plus used a 40% off coupon on Sixta's gift...gotta love it.
