I got no wish list because I'm an impulse buyer. I don't NEED anything, so I never know what I want until I SEE it. That said...


Picked up the chipboard set for my MamaRazzi2 project. Also grabbed some Tim HOltz plaquettes and a BoBunny MiscMe Contents pack.

$14.00 (I have a very nice "teacher" discount at my LSS).

150-14
Remaining Budget $136

As usual, I'm in. Have a gazillion bills to pay from the funeral expenses, so I need to stay on budget this month. Need to think about it a bit.

Welcome to Amy and Shatema.

Tammy, did I miss your birthday? Happy Birthday!

Ladies.. I am BUSTED! Busted wide open the second day of the month! Is that a record or do I remember Alissa busting the first day? If she didn't, I wouldn't put it past Courtney... LOL!! Broke my twist for sure too... but NOT on flowers or cricut carts for a change!

Budget: $75 (Including $45 in Expo credit) - BUST
Wishlist: modeling paste, EP Photo Freedom papers, Glue Arts tape refill, Pink Paislee Artisan Collection circles, hearts and stars, and PP snowflake chipboards and photo tabs, masks/templates (various), BoBunny Powder Mountain paper pad and embellies, We R Memory Keepers Tab punch and Albums Made Easy cards and flush sheet protectors, Simple Stories Take a Hike and Awesome papers, embellies and SNAP alphas, Sizzix BG and TH dies, new Prima metal trinkets, must-have wood and chipboard embellies
TWIST: Absolutely NO other paper (including cardstock), flowers, embellies, trims, tools or inks! No Cricut Carts either! I need NOTHING!

I was surprised by this Expo... it was bigger than the last two, but they didn't have nearly as much new CHA stuff as the last one did! Didn't find any of the papers I really needed (photo freedom and albums made easy)! And my budget went WAY too fast!!! Had a great time volunteering and LOVED the class i took tho! Great time with four of my gal pals and was really tempting to go to Disneyland afterwards except that I spent all my money!

LOL. Go Sonja. Love it when you bust - it makes it less awful when I do.

I made the Swirlydoos Ultimate Design Challenge Week 4 cut.

Except for this week, I'm going to HAVE to go shopping because our project assignment is a CANVAS project. I've never even attempted one. I understand Michael's has them on sale this week, 2 for 1. So...there's a trip in itself.

I own NO Gelattos. I own NO Bead Gel. I don't think I own any glazes at all...

Some of it I think is unnecessary - and I actually HAVE a decent idea of what I want my project to BE, so I'm going to rummage pretty deep down into my supply stash and see what I have that I can make work withOUT having to go shopping. But I'm going to have to spend a little this week, that's just a given.

Sonja - move over on the busted couch. I'll be joining you shortly.

Sonja, fear not. Alissa still holds the record. I think she busted once before the actual month even began.

Pat, I'm so excited for you! Congratulations for making it to round 4.

Still not sure about the wish list, but I'm getting closer to narrowing it all down.

thanks for the birthday love!

I spent $7 on Saturday on papers for my trip last weekend and dh sneakily bought me a TH blender foam pad thingie.

My budget this month will be as regular as it gets $50 - 7 = $43 (I think I might have to see if I can move the money I didn't spend every month onwards lol)

Wishlist (papers for my trip were already bought), SU Digital content disks on sale for $1, SU stamp set cause it is my birthday month - just need to figure out which one.

Thank you Tammy! I don't have a lot to spend (actually very little as I'm recently unemployed) so this should be a piece of cake to NOT bust!
And a happy belated birthday too Tammy!

will you busted ladies do another budget? or just keep spending? once I bust, I keep spending so I won't go over the next month, sounds like a great idea at the time, but I usually bust anyway!

*pats the cushion next to her* Come'on Pat, have a seat!
And congrats on making it to week 4!! If we lived closer, I'd loan you my Gelatos - which are still in their package and unused... I really want to try using them, but I'm such a chicken... Can't wait to see what you dig up to use!

LOL Courtney! Thank you for proving my point! And Pat and I will save a space for you cuz it sounds like you'll be joining us shortly! BTW, I want your budget!!

No worries, Shatema, like Kelly pointed out, Alissa (Runzalot) still holds the record for busting and I don't think anyone can beat that one!

Dang Tammy! Wish my dh thought to buy me things like that! Of course he did give me an extra $20 for Expo... which I promptly spent so I suppose that counts! LOL

Ugh... I am dragging fanny today ladies... ds is teething four teeth at the moment and is just NOT happy about it! I got maybe 3 hours last night... I'm alone in the office today so I should be scrapping, but I haven't the energy or motivation... Oh wait.. here comes motivation (in the form of a latte one of my coworkers generously delivered)!! Aaaahhhh foamy goodness...
