Budget: $75-$9=$66-$36=$30-$14=$1 6

Wish: HFC Delicate Asters stamp and die

Twist: No paper, no flowers, no leaves, no embellishments, no ribbon, no punches, I need nothing. Paper and punch twist are blown.


Oh, still have a bit left, but I do have a cart of metal cr@p over at Alpha Stamps. I'm making a little chest out of matchbooks. It's adorable, so I need the legs and pulls. What's a girl to do?

You fit in here way too well, Dawn!

So Kelly, if you didn't get anything on your wishlist, what did you get? Because I don't see much of a selection left that's NOT on your Twist list...

Budget: $75-$9=$66-$36=$30-$14=$1 6-$18=BUSTED

Wish: HFC Delicate Asters stamp and die

Oops, forgot about the $18 I spent at F2F on the new TH stains. I got the Christmas colors and another set, I think it might have been Halloween.

Sonja, I bought lots of stuff. A LaBlanche stamp, all of the TH metallic stains, the TH Holiday wreath die,3 Dylusions mists, and two more Crafter's Workshop masks.

Oh, before I forget, I completed my Hoarder's Challenge. Yay me. I cut into not just one piece of Salt Air, but two pieces! I also used two of those old buttons. So excited to be getting some use out of my old stash! Now I don't feel so bad for busting.

dawn you can pm me that link! F2F is probably on the list Sonja gave you

Thanks Sonja, I was going to ask what the heck Miss K bought too since she initially didn't share and ummm do we really see her waiting until next month to get those HC dies? Not I but i have been wrong before.

I do too, Kelly, I really want to jump on this paper stock up deal here at sb.com today - want to get extras of that Photo Freedom kit - LOOOVE it! But I'm trying to remind myself that they do that sale all the time... of course you get free shipping if you spend $50 today...

I have a crop on Saturday and a SMASH class on SUnday so HOPING to get at least a few pages done, though it will by no means diminish my stash enough to justify spending on more goodies... grrr

Anyone see the Peachy deal today on the MME washi tape? double grrrr



I got 4 packages of this peachy deal last time:)

Hey girls! Sorry I've been "not here." I've been BUSY.

Too busy to shop, too busy to crop, too busy to scrap, to busy to keep up with more than a fly by!

DD is coming home for tGiving. I'm feeding 30 people at my house this year. Trying to get things bought and pre-cooked all I can, and trying to get some little "round the house" projects done before the big day.

I've decided, after MUCH soul searching, to give up my PT job at my LSS. The hours are too erratic, and my creativity is suffering a bit due to the necessity of creating only projects that can be squeezed into a two-hour class block. I have three more classes to teach - two on Saturday, one on Tuesday, and one more day of full day work, and then I'm done.

Today - I went and interviewed for another PT job. It's an afternoon/evening teller position at my local bank. Hours would be very regular so the paycheck would be predictable, and the commute would be practically non-existent. Add to, the branch office is inside my local grocery store, so I'd be able to pick up dinner on the way home - literally. I'd have all morning to do my own thing, and I'd still be home at a reasonable hour.

My scrap room looks like it's thrown up on itself again, so that's a project for Sunday, along with my DT project for Nuts About Sketches due Sunday.

Gads. NO time. NOOOOO time.

Hi everybody!
