I heard that the Slice cartridges are now $4.99 at M's so I'll be going there on Tuesday. I have a college pal coming over for dinner tomorrow, so I might not get out tomorrow. I also decided to hit my knee on the church pew today, so I have a feeling my knee will be sore tomorrow.
PS- I finally finished my SIL's album at midnight and gave it to her today. One down, a few more to go!

Katie, great job! The pages look awesome.

I have discovered a must have object. I'm in love with the new MS PATP-crochet lace. I have to have it. I haven't seen it at Ms yet, but I'm going to look next time I'm at work. It's one of those over-sized PATP sets, so it's pricey. Would really like to use a 50% off coupon.

They beefed the price of the PATP punches at M's. They were offering 25% off plus i had an additional 20% off sale stuff...but they were $32.99 to start...too price IMHO....

I did really good....I spent about $20 yesterday..and didnt spend anywhere but M's and I bought christmas stuff so not even all of it was scrappy budget LOL...I will update this when I get home...happy monday!

That is a good idea Courtney! I actually took a couple packing up photos - of the boxes as I put away our uniforms and of the truck after we'd loaded it up. I have to admit, I did get all weepy as we were pulling away... I've got loads of pictures at the cabin so will have to do that page (one of these days!) Preferably before baby arrives because then I'll be busy doing baby pages!!

Hope you're feeling better Kelly!

Congrats Katie - those pages are fabulous!

Yep, Courtney, I saw those Prima wanna-bes when I went to M's at the end of December, BUT I actually restrained myself from getting any! They're nice, but not quite close enough to the quality of Prima for me to go overboard...

Hope everyone's weekend was nice! Ours was fun getting to see all our co-workers at the mountain. Found out my supervisor wants to throw a shower for me and DH in March with all the Summit staff! Totally humbled me! A group of us went out for dinner Saturday night - and I was the DD as usual... People are going to owe me big time for this... (Actually, I don't really miss the drinking so much as a nice glass of wine at the cabin when it's cold out!) Aach I'm going to miss my scrappy days at the cabin! Anyway, we packed all the heavy stuff up while the weather was nice and will probably go next weekend to get the rest. Poor dh wore himself out doing all the heavy lifting and loading and by the time we got home last night at 6:30, we were both wiped out!

OH and we did stop and buy the paint to do the baby's room!!!!!! Called Vanilla Milkshake and is a very pale light yellow. Can't wait to see it!!

Good morning ladies. My groupon expires tomorrow, so I need to shop online and use it before I lose it. Sadly there is nothing on the website I want or need. I'll probably just stock up on Stickles and Liquid Pearls.

Courtney and Sonja, are you guys talking about the Recollections flowers that look like they walked out of the Prima factory? They look like Prima because they ARE Prima. Michael's has lots of big name brands release product for them under the Recollections name. The Recollections punches that are pink are produced by Fiskars, and the Recollections paper pads are produced by several big name companies such as DCWV and MME. In fact, one of the Rec. Christmas stacks was a stack that was released by MME (last year I believe) and just rebranded.

Sonja & Vivian, can't wait to see what you all do with your new homes. I love redecorating.

Last I checked the packages of Recollections flowers had a made in Thailand on the back which is where Prima is based. I'm sure that could change at any time, but I think this all happened around July of last year.

That's really good to know Kelly! I wondered why they were soooo similar and now I don't feel so cheap getting the Recollections ones when I can't always afford the Primas! Come to think of it, there was a time-themed paper pad I almost bought last Fall that looked suspiciously like MME pprs!

Vivian - That's a good point! I don't know why I thought scrappy supplies would be any different! I worked in the textile industry for 2 years and the company my DH works for manufactures the labels for brands like 7 for all Mankind, True Religion, Gap, Guess, Diesel and Rock & Republic. It's shocking how much a price difference there are for some brands, when the only real difference is the 2-3 cent label sewn in back or the 10-cent button and rivet! It's a huuuuge industry!

I bought two pairs expensive jeans (Lucky Brand and BKE) nearly eight years ago and I'm still wearing them. No holes or tears. They're the only two pairs of jeans I have.

I loved the Recollections brand mini roses. So sad they stopped carrying those. The current stuff does look a wee bit cheap to me.

Tammy, I've been trying really hard to spend my xmas/birthday money! But J's online is having issues accepting gift cards right now... and two things that were in my cart are now out of stock

Tina, can't wait to hear about your class.

I can't believe we are 11 days into the month, and no one has busted yet. This must be a record!

Stupid me watched HSN yesterday and they had all these scrapbook shows on. MS was an hour long show. There are several punches that have been out for ages that I never had any interest in, but they showed all these different ways to use them during the demo, and now of course I need them. Planned on buying one today with my 50% off coupon, but now I see MS is 25% off in the store so the coupon can't be used. Whatev. I'll just use it on some ATG tape. There is nothing else I really want or need.

Alissa - Hope you can get that gift card to work!

It's my firm belief, Kelly, that M's always puts the MS stuff on 25-30% off whenever they have a 50% off coupon out!! It's a conspiracy, I tell ya! I've been wanting the double arches punch forever, but every time I finally have a 50% off coupon, the MS stuff is already on sale!

Thanks Tina! It sounded so good, I got a pregger craving for it and we had to go get me one! LOL!!

Vivian, how's the packing coming along? We went through our drawers and files and threw away a ton of stuff last night. DH is bringing boxes tonight and I'm going to clear off the book shelves and pack up all the frames and deco stuff. Think we might be having pizza tonight... I'm in no mood to cook!

Tammy - Are you over that nasty cold you had yet?

My budget is safe for another day. Bought ATG tape with my coupon which is a budget exception.

Sonja, I think you are right about Ms putting the MS punches on sale when the 50% off coupon is out. I'm going to have to use my Js 50% off coupon next time the MS stuff isn't on sale. It's so frustrating!

Thanks for the recommendations on the embossing powder, Alissa and Tammy! I decided I didn't need those bright colors all that much! Sooo my budget is safe for another day...

Kelly - I have a sinking feeling J's does that too... though I don't get there as often since the one nearest me I have to kind of drive out of my way to get to, while I can just walk to the M's on my lunch break (Very dangerous, mind you!)

I think I've got the least amount left, don't I? Anyone want me to help them spend their budgets?!

Packing is coming along - scrappin' ain't. Really want to make that second baby card before I put it all away. AND someone has ordered another card from me that I'll need to make after I get back from Florida next week. I guess she likes my work

So, not busted, not shopping, and very little scrappin'!! If you are adventurous, check out my blog. Posted the baby card I made last week.

Hi ladies, I had a blast making the minis at A's.
I will need to get back to you on what I spent, not much tho. I don't need a thing. I did buy a puffy pen that was so fun. We used it to make a cupcake then heated it up. I thought it would be great for snow and clouds too!

I hear you Kelly, on the missing mojo... I had plenty of time last night, but didn't do a thing. And I'm off on Monday and really want to finally get going, but am afraid the mojo just still isn't there! And of course I'll feel like I should be packing that day... Hope you get yours back!

Got my first doctor's bill last night... Holy smokes! I think my scrappy budget for the rest of this pregnancy may have to be zero!

Tina - Personally I snow, but as I'm pregnant and can't do the things I enjoy in it (i.e. ski) I'm kinda relieved we're not getting any here or else I would be crying! Hope you stay warm though!

Sooooo does it count if I get a $20 Groupon for $40 of goodies at a LSS near me?? It's good till July, but I'm guessing it does count against my budget!

Well in that case I officially BUST! I could NOT pass that deal up!!! (And it'll give me an excuse to shop for *free* in Feb! Cuz let's be honest... this coupon won't make it to July...)
And if I'm being completely honest here, my SOD kit ended up being $58, not $55... I'll take my First To Bust trophy please!

You GO girl!! You can doooo it! I'm determined to get 3 done this weekend too... need to complete some of my challenges before I have to pack up all my scrappy supplies and move them! Good thing football playoffs are on this weekend... DH will be too distracted to nag me about packing! LOL

so you just bought the Groupon? Not the supplies - if that is the case I don't think it counts until you actually spend it and then it will only be for $20 not $40. I mean technically you could give it away as a gift and then it isn't even counted at all right. so until you spend I say it doesn't count - just don't forget to count when you spend!

I'll update amounts over the weekend - I am kinda busy tonight -getting ready to crop

No offense, Courtney, but I like Tammy's answer better! Thank you Tammy!!! And yes, I did buy the Groupon, not the actual supplies. I actually bought it before I asked, assuming I'd be busted then, but this works out better!

I'm still gonna bust because that leaves me only $2... and I certainly can't get any storage stuff or sheet protectors for $2!!

So you're saying I'm not getting my trophy then, is that it?

I spent $20 on Slice cartridges today. I liked one so much that I bought it twice, so I'll have to see if I can return one. M's is clearancing them out, so I might as well stock up and I can find a use for them later!

I avoided the GM deal. **Woot** I went down and looked at my GM shelves and asked myself where I was going to put the GM. I didn't have an answer, so I didn't buy. I obviously need more shelves.

I may (probably will) need to buy a TH ink pad today. I need a really dark green distress ink and don't have one for a LO I'm actually working on. I think Pine Needle may do the trick. I really don't want to spend the money, and yet I've searched all my inks and don't have the right color. Hope I can find it on evil bay for a decent price. Would hate to pay loads of shipping for one item.

I'd just like to prepare you all for the Bo Bunny CHA new releases. They rock! The Weekend Market line is phenomenal. I'm a 1000% sure I will bust the day I can get my hands on it. I have to have the collection pack, the buttons, the trinkets, the dimensional stickers, the brads, I want it all! **stomps foot** And now I'm off to put myself in the corner until I act like a well-behaved lady again.

I saw those Prima lines. There may be one of those I want too. I haven't seen EP yet either, and they are usually my fave. Gah! I need to start cutting up some serious paper, because I really have no room for a single piece let alone an entire collection pack. Grrrrrrrr, why did I have to be such a paper glutton??

Tina, I've been wanting a TH ink holder thingy, but so far, I've resisted. Tammy, I love that SU ink holder. Love it. I just loathe the price. BTW, I have a little moving envy. I think it would be so cool to live in England. I just don't think I'd handle the weather very well. I love my sunshine.

Dang... Tina stole my trophy from me... *Gleeful laugh* Good for you Tina!!

Good thing I missed that GM deal or I would have busted right behind you though...

Shayla - Sounds to me like what you're doing is way more important! Thats wonderful!!

Kelly - That was my thoughts exactly on the Groupon!

*SQUEEE* Just got my SOD kit... omg... in LOVE! I was eying those G45 tropical pprs anyway and about jumped out of my skin when I saw they were in this month's kit!

Do I even dare ask where you guys are seeing all this new stuff at??? LOL @ Kelly 'Paper Glutton'!!! Too funny!

Btw... I did not to ONE SINGLE PAGE this weekend!!!!! What the heck is wrong with me?!?! I want to... I need to... I just can't get myself motivated!! I thought the second trimester was the relief and rejouvinate trimester?! Did I miss that boat?

there are lines in the sneak peeks I did not even open just not even going there!

Kelly I hear you about the weather but Europe for $70 return pretty much anywhere for a flight (and Ireland for $20 return for St Patty's day), I'll live without sunshine every single day. It is actually affordable for me to fly to Italy for a weekend or St Petersburg to the winter palace

I forgot about CHA!! what type of scrapper forgets about CHA! lol I am on the sneak peaks page now... ohhhh I guess it's a good thing I have been so busy and not shopping because I wont feel bad for spending $$$$$$ when all the new goodies come out!! I think I have earned the right to blush at my bill. lol

Shayla, if anyone has earned that right, it's you. You've been on the wagon for nearly a year. Go for it!

Deduct $8 from my budget. I spent $2.58 on fabric poinsettia on clearance at Ms. I may use them on my tree or I might use them on LOs, but just in case they make it on paper go ahead and deduct them. They were $.58 a bag, I couldn't leave them behind. I also spent $5 on the TH Pine Needle ink I needed for my LO. I may not be done yet. I'm still pondering that TH Alterations sign die. I could really use that on the current page I'm working on. I'm just not sure it would get a whole lot of use besides on that page. What to do, what to do...

Courtney, I love when it's CHA time. I always get so stupidly excited. I'm anxiously awaiting Basic Grey and Echo Parks sneak peaks. Hurry up!! Hey, I'm also jealous you get to go to Summer CHA. Yes, I'm very jealous! Color me green.

Tammy - Oh, I have faith... it's the confidence I lack!

Shayla - If it makes you feel better, I forgot about CHA too! And the Anahiem Expo that's coming up in FEB! EEK! I can't afford it... I can't afford it... I can't afford it...

Soooo, group trip to London to see Tammy and jet around Europe, right?! (Nevermind the ridiculous costs to fly to London from the US!)

*gasp* Totally in love with that Prima 'Sunkissed' set!! That yellow is very very close to the color we painted the baby's room and I x infinity sunflowers!! Eeek! And the Almanac collection is stunning too! aaaaaa

Good thing these are not available yet... Or my $3 would be buh-bye! lol!!

yes Shayla my dear Bo Bunny release sneak peeks - but we need to be quiet around Kelly where that is concerned - there is one she is definitely coveting (and honestly she dragged me in line with her)

Sonja dear there is a way to turn your $3 into $13 - apparently if you load up a layout to the gallery you are entered for a $10 gc here at sb.com

I believe there is rules - like you have to list one product on it - check under contests

Did someone say Bo Bunny? I LOVE Bo Bunny. Weekend Market is the shiznit! I'm pretty sure Serenity may find it's way into my stash too along with a little Country Garden.

Gah! I've been crawling the web for EP & BG sneak peaks when all of a sudden I think I remember reading that they wouldn't be attending CHA this year. Did I remember that correctly or did I just make it up?

Bo Bunny sneak peaks were nearer to the bottom if I remember right... of course after looking so long I sort of went cross-eyed...

Yep, totally coveting Weekend Market!!!

Tammy - TY for the tip! I can make it to the 31st with $13... assuming I win of course! That does it, I'm going home tonight and scrapping!!!! Gonna put some cheddar/potato soup on for dinner and go play!

LOL You could totally hear the alarm bells going off in Kelly's head when Shayla said 'Bo Bunny'!

Tina - way to go!!! And CHA is the Craft and Hobby Association Trade Show - you need to be affiliated with a retailer or have your own business in the trade to get in. It is where all the companies release their new goodies for the coming season.

And I told you guys we had to be very quiet mentioning BB around Kelly and here she is already drool down her shirt and looking for EP and BG (and I don't know the answer to your question)
