Month after month after month...the torture we put ourselves through!! It's the March budget buying challenge....to help us stay within limits on our scrappy buying!!! Its the 3rd month of the new year and I haven't yet busted my monthly budget!!! LOL

The rules: List your budget for the month of March that you want to spend on scrappy goodies!!! Then, LIST the items that are definites that you want to buy this month!

The catch: You can spend your money on whatever you want, list or impulse, but you must buy and have me mark off at least half of the items that you list!!! For example, if you list 10 items, you have to buy at least 5 of those and have me strike them off your list, etc. Please make sure to tell me when I am supposed to strike off an item!

Please tell me how much you spent throughout the month, and I will keep track of it in this post! You do not have to include costs for adhesives, swaps, gifts or shipping.

Please enable and tempt us to buy the wonderful items you want....but don't tempt us to bust our budget!!!

THANK YOU to my returning friends for joining me and WELCOME to any new friends!!!

i havent had an opportunity to look at any up close yet. i just see alot of people using them for stitching and brad setting. ideally i would love a flourish one if they even make such a thing. or a zigzaggy pattern. is that a word.

i went to Jo's today. i spent 9.29. i can't believe i got out of there so cheap. i got puffy paint and gems to cross of my list. and some metal heart embellies and wiggly eyes. i don't know why i got those, but it seems like whenever i have an idea for them i don't have any. so it is just for my stash.
