easily enabled;) LOL...I was just there this evening and found all sorts of new paper pads. I got two new Amy Butler. I think there was a 3rd as well, but I didn't get that one.

There are like 4 new MME pads; those big 180 sheets ones; a boy, girl, fall and school themed.

Some DCWV ones I have not seen before. I THINK one was called Sherbet. Could be wrong.

Also a KI pad, some other pads whose brand names I can not recall. Some K&Co.

There was still quite a bit of empty space so there has got to be more coming in...Not good, not good:(

I was at a different store this past week and they had lots of new acrylic stamp sets. I've only bought 2 so far with coupons, but there were definately other sets I really liked.

M's is going to send me to the poor house;)

Yep, I agree. They are redoing the scrappy section at my Mike's. I saw lots of new Tim Holtz/Ranger stuff. LOTS of new clear stamps.

I was in the Michaels in Dublin Cal and lots of the shelves and displays were empty. I asked what was going on and the lady said their store is a model for a new way of arranging the scrap stuff..it is all going to be done by theme. Also they are getting new stuff...she hopes it is done by next week....can't wait to see it...don't need anything but you know how that goes.
I was delighted but there was a cranky lady complaining about how she couldn't find anything and kept saying "this is disgusting"..I thought what the H. E. double L. are you doing in the scrap section anyway..you can't be a scrapper...we're NEVER cranky!!!!

LOL @ the cranky comment. That is SO true; we are never cranky:) I'm just giddy with anticipation of what it's going to look like when they are done and all the new goodies they'll be getting in:)

Ours had a whole two aisles that were getting set up by theme; baby, wedding, travel, etc.

After blowing all but 5.00 of my allowance on sale stuff that I just had to have, it occurred to me.....

I could save a ton of money if I could send hubby in with a list.

The Stockton M's is like this. They put it in over a year ago. It's really nice and fun and EASY to find stuff! Apparently it was one of 2 at the time that they were testing out. The other was in Texas.

yeah big clearance at michaels storewide it seems.

I had money from the office to get a few things for our scrapbooks (yes I get paid to scrap and get to spend their money!). Anyway, I found a nursery rhyme pad of paper (we do internatioal adoption) and it said it was on clearance from 19.99 to 9.97. I figured...well that's about a penny a page and we are running low so okay....it rang up as 4.97!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!

I just got the 2 new alcohol ink sets that M's is carrying. Oh, dear. Guess I will be forced to alter something to justify them. Although, I did get them with a 50% off coupon. So maybe, I can just admire the addition to my collection for a bit. M's don't ya just hate to love the store.

I fell victim to the new paper this morning. I went in armed with a 50% off coupon and the mindset of "i only need a self healing cutting mat..only a self healing cutting mat." But then I saw the new paper. I picked up one by K&Company, one I don't remember and a small pack of blue themed papers by Me & My Big Ideas. I also picked up some clearance primas and 3 sets of $1 alphas. And two sets of bazzill matstacks that were on sale. And I have an $86 order coming from the superstore..AND i joined a monthly kit club. This hobby is a sickness..lol. I think sometimes I enjoy shopping for supplies more than actually using them.

I love what Michaels has done with their scrap area. Ours now has a TON of great stuff from most of the major brands. It went in a month or so after the hugely popular LSS around here closed (not because they were failing- owner just wanted more free time). I don't know if that was coincidence, but it filled a scrappy gap very well.

IS this hobby a sickness? Sometimes I wonder! lol I swear, the amount of money I spend buying stuff sometimes is really scary! Well, scary for me as I'm sure there are people who spend ALOT more. At times I think of all the OTHER things I could do with all the money I spend on scrapbook supplies....but then I just buy more paper! lol

DH and I were in the M's in Modesto last week and I did notice that one side of one of the aisles was empty....could that be the beginning???? I sure do hope so, or else I'll have to go check out the one in Dublin with my sister next month!

Mine had the regularly $150 down to $10. I bought all the ones I didn't have. Someone was kind enough to post that hers had them for the steal so I hit up mine and sure enough. I had to call a few friends and share the wealth (enable) a bit.

Tell me about it, I got off work way early because they didn’t need me that day and so I stopped at Michel’s on my way home just for something to do it was right there. . . And I spent $40. I Know that’s not a lot to you guys who spend hundreds but really I’m 16 and get paid very, very poorly that’s a lot of money to me.

I noticed that last week when they were restocking too! While I saw many new products like Thickers and other embellies and new papers and tons of new acrylic stamps in boxes waiting to be put on the shelves, I notice all the K&Co stuff were gone!

I wonder if Js is doing the same thing? There are some new K&Co embellies that I like.. maybe it's better for me this way.. I can save...

But I'm very tempted to look at the 'new' Ms with the many rows of sb supplies. I might go today..

Hmmm...gotta keep a close eye on mine now. There is new K&Co. stuff. I've seen it. Well paper pads at least. Not sure about whole lines like there used to be. Gotta wait and see when they are all done with the new set up to see what's going to become of that section where all the K&Co. lines used to be.

went to my M's today. It SUCKED. I was sorely disappointed. They didn't have ANYTHING! I even dragged a buddy along and she was disappointed after I had told her all the goodness that was to be found. Bummer huh?

I did however, notice new Tim stuff. SUPER excited about that. They had 3 packs of distress stickles for $3.99 each but I haven't heard good stuff about the distress ones so I skipped it.

my m's has new k&co embellies and paper pads...and all the new paper and a bunch of new embellies. I managed to only buy one thing an ek success postage stamp punch,but when i got home I was disappointed at how small it punches the shape out. I'll be returning it tomorrow.

I went to mine yesterday and they are done with reshelving the new stock... the K&Co embellies are still there.. but they are now in the 'themed' sections.

The paper pads are in the paper sections.

Missed the 9.97 Sizzix alpha sale though.. they are all gone.

You all enabled me to stop there on the way home from my LSS.

I got the pet stack, which was in the clearance section, and not sure if it really was on clearance, though it rang up 9.99...the guy used my 40% coupon on that...so it came up to 6 bucks! I also got some MM Black Tie stuff for cheap (I'm excited to start scrapping wedding photos!). I'm going to try masks, since I found some amongst the new Tim stuff they have...they were regular price (my intended coupon use), but since the cashier took it off the paper pad, I saved more than what the masks cost, so that was awesome.

And I just hit the LSS yesterday too...and I just got my shipment of stickles and paper from an online store on Saturday!

I'm on a spending roll and I need to quit!

Ours are pretty picked over at this point. Not really anything good left and not all that great prices either.
