I went shopping with a woman from chruch the other day and we went to joanns

I bought a black ink pad , an new stamp that says hugs and some glue sticks.

the woman said you didn't buy anything that exciting

i said it's not what you buy it's what you do with it afterwards

she agreed

Agreed!
But I love to buy all the little things.
A small new ink pad, maybe a glue pen or new writing pen,
Maybe I'll pick up a pack of adhesive for my ATG or 1 little pack of flowers or ribbon. I get a bag at the first store (can you tell I'm store hopping to use my coupons!) and no bags from there on out, each time putting my new goody in the same bag, when I get home I dump it onto my desk and go through all the new "little things" I scored!
And best of all, sometimes I may only spend $10-20. Bucks!
I love all the little things that enables us to create bigger things!

Come on Donna, come to the dark side and enjoy those stamps...most of us love them. I know I do, I have a small addiction problem with them. But then I have an addiction problem with metal embellishments, ribbon, bling and paper. I go through phases...lol.

Ohhh stamps. I love to buy them, but I don't think that I really use them nearly enough! LOL. The scrap I went to last weekend had an AWESOME activity: scrapbooking garage sale. You brought and sold your unwanted items. It was awesome, I got like $75 worth of stamps (many unused) for like $12. Now, what to do with them...

The other day I showed my mother my first little bottle of Liquid Pearls and I showed her how it works. She looked at me and said: You sure have A LOT of little stuff. HAHAHAHA

What a great response you gave her! Love it.
Just curious what she bought that she thought was so much more exciting.
