It's a day of massive celebration, for me! It's PayDay-Friday!

Is it payday for anybody else and are you gonna go spend some money? C'mon! Let's support the economy! (Rationalize...rationalize..)

Anybody got their heart set on something specific this weekend? I'm currently combing thru the scrapbook.com superstore, trying to find somethin' real special! lol

Also, anybody else playing along with Mr. Holtz's 12 Tags of 2012? I did my March tag last night!

Yes, it's pay day for me, too. No, I don't have my heart set on anything this weekend. I'm covering another merchandising route for my boss this week and had a nice surprise coming out of one of my stops... LSS across the parking lot from where I was working. Stopped in and picked up a couple of odds and ends; nothing exciting.

I got paid Wednesday (that miracle of miracles, a three-paycheck FEBRUARY!), but there's nothing I really need. Well, I need to figure out some paper for the "Super Cars" NFL-themed racecars that were on display downtown during Super Bowl week, and maybe some paper for the ice sculptures from that same week, but I can work on my other pages from that in the meantime.

I may have missed it, but did sb.com not do a free shipping day in February?

You will love the CE2!

I've not had one problem with mine-

Unless you count the times it wouldn't cut the paper at ALL, not even SCRATCH the paper- no matter what setting I used- until I realized I forgot to put the blade into the housing. Hahaha

Seriously, tho- I love it, I love the screen- love seeing where it's gonna cut, love seeing the images on each cartridge and switching between views- shift, function, all that- it's so cool.

I want to!! I love those tags! But I have yet to find the time to make one for this wonderful project. Making tags is so much fun! And Tim Holtz's tags are sooooo gorgeous! He's the best!

My version of the March tag took only 15 minutes to make, at the most. No excuses!!

;-)

Seriously, tho- that is a great thing about tags- they're so small that they don't take long to do, and they're so much fun.

I work all weekend so I did my damage already!
Ended up with the BIA- didn't try it out yet, maybe next week.
Got it for $40 ?? With a 40% coup @ HL.
Then I hit M's and got some spray mount to recondition my Cricut mats, and found some large clothe doilies in the buck section, came out with 5 of those, then went to Archivers and spent another $40, but I " needed" pearl glimmer mist, brown ink, found the " goosebumps " spray that I wanted to try, a signo pen and TH movers and shapers flowers, it's the one that works with his tattered flowers die.
The I came home and bought 2 camera batteries, not scrap related, well kinda, but that was all the fun money I had to blow.
Then last night my kiddo handed me $400! He owes me LOTS, and is paying me here and there, but now I want to spend that too! But planning a trip to Florida for May, so I know that I shouldn't spend it, darn it!

Wednesday was payday for us. I haven't spent anything at all, however, I am attending a workshop tomorrow at a LSS with Teresa Collins teaching, so I'm planning to put some money down then. I'm sure they will have her new lines ready for us to purchase, and since the session I'm attending is the first of 4 sessions, maybe, just maybe they will have a good selection.

Hubby is retired so no real payday, but that doesn't mean I can't shop! sb's disney-promo-day took a good chunk of my free money, then J's 15% discount on total purchase, with most everything already 40% off, and I spent a whole lot more. Now if I could just figure out how to use everything I buy and find the time. Maybe a creative brain and extra time will be a little surprise-gift packed in one of the boxes that I'm now waiting for~

Just got back from Costco where I bought another gardening rolling cart for me to bring to Canada to lug around my scrap stuff. I loved the one I got here so much I needed a second one.

I also got an ott light at Costco for $12.... Awesome deal. I shopped for scrap supplies yesterday and to a pink rolling tote at m's for $20 on clearance. Love it and got 12 packs of thickets at Marshall's for $1.49 each. It was a good day.

Whoa, GIGI! Way to GO!

You put me to shame!!

I did manage to talk two friends into hittin up a JoAnn after work- I had a ten dollar gift card, left over from the free ones they gave out at the grand opening. My friend's friend gVe me her's that day, when she couldn't find anything there that she wanted, lol. AND they had the Spellbinders octagon die set on sale for 14.97! Whooooo, I been aching for that one- and I didn't even know they had it! So octagon party tomorrow!

Tomorrow, I'm also going back to the rubber stamping and art store here, that I went to for the first time last week, to pic up another few cool things.

I hope to do that pretty early tomorrow, and I'm gonna be making things all day long. Feel free to stop by, y'all! lol

Payday Friday here!
I went to M's with the intention of purchasing a BigShot or BigKick. However, the empty boxes were on the shelf but when I went to the checkout, the manager said the only one they had was one the crop class uses and they can't find all of the parts for it. So I ended up buying the Texture Boutique. I also picked up a Tim Holtz texture folder and several texture folders for the TB. I just got home from town, so I have not had a chance to play with it yet. The TB was $39 but I think it was even lower plus I used a 40% off coupon so the total ended up being $43. I love PayDay Friday.

Count me in! Today I went to a new (to me) craft store on my way to an appointment in another town. They had Viva Pearl Pens!! I've been wanting to try them. Plus they had some interesting blends of embossing powder. I also found an inexpensive pack of paper doilys which I'm going to use Glimmer Mist on. It's been a while since I've spent money on anything crafty. I'm pretty excited!

Yes its payday for both me and Mrs Mister. We are up early tomorrow and heading to Sewing Expo at the Puyallup Fairgrounds. It's the largest sewing expo in the country and my wife's company has one of the largest booths there. I go looking forward to the booth that sells pcs of antique kimono fabrics, the Vagabond Gypsy booth and a handful of others that have products that cooly cross over into scrapbook country. On the way home we plan on stopping at a LSS and signing up for a workshop with Laura Denison - I am so looking forward to that. My Sb.com order will be delivered next Wednesday. It's going to be a good week!

I did my damage on Thursday =)
I needed magnetic tape...had a bunch of J's coupons so off I went before going to work

The magnetic tape was $5.99 - 40% off but I ALSO had that 15% off entire purchase that I couldn't just let go to waste!

I bought:
- A mini easel (to hold the calendar I'm gonna make)
- A long panel of corkboard (was planning on attaching that to the side of my Expedit unit to hold snippits of layouts, photos and such)
- A leafy Spellbinder
- 3 12x12 DCWV paper stacks (love the ones with the bling on em!)
- 1 small mat stack (to match the summer stack)
- 3 Tim Holtz sticker packs (loveeee that they match his paper stacks-that Christmas one is my FAVE)
- 9 packs of various chipboard sticker/embellies
- one of those "green" shopping bags they sell (I have a ton and always forget to take them with me)

Good thing I'm on a "scrappy diet", eh? Gotta save the funds for the Orlando Expo (yippeeee) in May!

I have a box of Avery magnet sheets I bought at OfficeMax for $14. It's product number 3270. You get 5 sheets per box. They run through your printer to create your own magnets. They are very thin sheets, you have to add your own adhesive. Keep a smile M.

However I am still eying that CE2 over @ HSN.....Theres a specific cart I want: Ribbons and Rosettes, however they dont have it and J's online is out of stock. Havent seen it in M's or J's store. Also I have the Slice Elite and Slice Fabrique just waiting to be used. I bought alot of Tattered Angels spray mist and rubber/acrylic stamps.

I found these here:

QuicKutz - 4 x 12 Adhesive Sheets - Magnet

I had purchased a box of magnetic sheets from M's. There were 3 sheets in a box...about 8x11 I think? Maybe a lil smaller. I paid $6.00. Very thin with adhesive backing. They weren't good for what I wanted but I'm goinna cut em with my Cricut and make fridge magnets.

Living from paycheck to paycheck is NOT the way to go. I hope you have some savings set aside for retirement or for a rainy day.

Sorry if I'm being a killjoy, but I'm a rather pragmatic person. If I have to wait for "payday" in order to buy some little goody for myself, then I really can't afford it.

Maybe you do have savings set aside for the important things, and your paycheck is used for bonus items. That's perfectly OK. People who don't have to worry about where the next meal is coming from are the only ones who should also worry about supporting the economy.

It's just great to be creative, but also do the math!

I am editing this because a previous post made me feel like I had to justify my spending and explain that I thought spending on payday was fine as long as money was put aside for savings and bills.

However, after thinking about it, I don't have to justify my spending so I deleted my previous post.

Actually, we live so far from town, (more than 55 miles from the nearest store) that we try to go to town only a couple of times a month. Sometimes the road over the 5k mountain pass is so bad that we don't feel safe driving to town. We are fully stocked on food, toiletries, etc. but we do save our fun money for town trips. I very rarely buy online, I like to see, hold and use whatever I spend my money on, right away.

Calling it 'PayDay Friday' is just something fun I decided to title a shopping trip a few weeks/months ago- and cuz it rhymed in a fun way to say way, it stuck and I've kept saying it- I am not living paycheck to paycheck. I also don't wait until my payday to buy something. I also don't have to wait until my payday to buy something.

I really believed my post to be all in fun- I certainly wasn't telling the forum to abandon responsibilities and go into debt to buy up the Bo Bunny.

I certainly didn't imagine that my post would cause any concern or lead for me to discuss my finances.

If I had said, 'ohhh it is payday, I've been living on two dollars a day for a week, now I can go spend all my money on paper!,' then maybe, I would expect it.

I also was NOT saying 'support the economy,' in any way other than just a joke- I didn't mean it as a DEMAND to all- to go buy things.

I have a great job. Sometimes I even have more than one job. Not because I have to, but because I enjoy stage managing plays and since I also get paid when I stage manage, it's a double bonus- fun and more money. I also surprisingly don't spend money as wildly on other things- I've never even had a car payment because I'm happy with my big old truck, and I see no need to spend much more than I could ever spend on scrap supplies, just so I can drive a flashy car.

You can also set your mind to rest about my future. I have savings. I have things set up. I don't think I've really worried about money for nearly twenty years. Yes, I'm old enough to say 'twenty years ago, when I got my first apartment and didn't have money to spend on hobbies.'

So, don't worry about me. I do the math. I do my OWN math.

::::Maybe you do have savings set aside for the important things, and your paycheck is used for bonus items. That's perfectly OK.:::::

That would be okay? I am so glad you've cleared that for me, and I have your approval.

I also hate to say it, but I don't even believe that your 'concern' is genuine. Based on other posts you have made, you seem very unhappy about something and you don't care much to see anyone living too joyfully. I'm sorry for that.

I live through Korys posts! As I do not make much and can't spend as much as Kory does, I budget myself and only spend what I can on scrappy supplies! Korys PayDay posts cheer me up and can't wait to see what he creates with all his goodies! It cheers me up knowing that its payday for Kory I look forward to it everyday after work!!!


Also I dont think that you have a place to talk about someones fiances when you have no idea what they do or dont have. Its the easiest way to offend someone. I personally think that it was a bit rude.

Sorry, Kory, but my comments were not directed at you personally. It was just a general observation. Other people on this forum have commented on supporting the economy -- I don't remember who or which thread it was.

I was born during the great depression and my parents taught me to be very frugal about spending. I remember begging my father to let me have 15 cents to buy a "Polly Pigtails" magazine once a month. It was almost like pulling teeth.

Solitaire, I'm not sure why this was said. It sounds like a character attack directed at Kory and has nothing to do with the general topic of the thread and Kory shouldn't have to defend his personal business. I personally hope this stinker doesn't throttle the light-hearted joy Kory brings to many of us. It's one of the things that inspires me in scrapbooking and keeps me coming back. I hope you have a wonderful week!

I have to agree with Mister and a couple of others, Solitaire, I read your post as a personal attack on the way Kory chooses to spend his money. As this isn't anybody's business but his own, I don't know why you felt the need to comment at all. I believe that in matters financial, religious and political, it is best to keep opinions to oneself unless asked.
Please don't try to justify your comments by bringing up when or how you were raised. We all have backgrounds and history that influence our decisions and actions, but we don't try to make anyone else live by our standards.
I truly hope you find something to enjoy about life, there really is a lot more good than bad if you take the time to look and keep an open mind.

Go Kory Go! Don't change a thing! I look forward to your payday adventures - they are wonderful! Thank you for sharing them with us - you add tremendously to the fun of scrapbooking.

It makes me smile and remember when I used to have paydays. I used to love the shopping that went with paydays!

I no longer have paydays - I have social security check days. Probably shouldn't say that or I may get a lecture for spending my social security checks on scrapbook supplies.

Kory, keep posting your payday treasures! You are the best at finding the fantastic deals! You inspire me to want to try to save money and shop a little smarter. But I can't - you are beating me to all the best deals.

Go Kory Go! Don't change a thing! I look forward to your payday adventures - they are wonderful! Thank you for sharing them with us - you add tremendously to the fun of scrapbooking.

It makes me smile and remember when I used to have paydays. I used to love the shopping that went with paydays!

I no longer have paydays - I have social security check days. Probably shouldn't say that or I may get a lecture for spending my social security checks on scrapbook supplies.

Kory, keep posting your payday treasures! You are the best at finding the fantastic deals! You inspire me to want to try to save money and shop a little smarter. But I can't - you are beating me to all the best deals.



Thats what i ment for monthly :P Lecture me all ya want ... i do what I want

What I love about Kory's payday shopping posts is that he uses what he buys, and then post for us to see how he used a new product.
I find it so sad that I have things from forever ago that I have not used. I have gotten better about it. I don't buy much anmore since we have no craft stores for me to think I have to use coupons at. I make a trip to the "big city" every three months to take my mom to her dr and she always treats me to a trip to Joann and Hl but sometimes all I buy is adhesive.

PS: I have nothing saved for the future or a rainy day. (Kept telling my daughter she would be responsible for me in my old age. She thought I was serious and ended up in therapy.)

OK. I get it now. So it was all just in fun. I guess I was taking it too seriously. (I'm a natural-born worrier.)

My apologies if I happened to offend anyone.

Enjoy!

LOL, my blog post today is about my Friday shopping! Although it wasn't PayDay, I did take some time for myself, got some great bargains, and even found some rarities that I'd been searching for!

Keep up the fun post, Kory!

Life is so serious that this is where I come for escape! I do love it here!

NMLady - you brought up an excellent point. I buy so much I never use. I have never used my Twinkling H2O's. All of my micro glitter is in the jars. And it is totally unrealistic to think I could ever use all my patterned paper in one lifetime!

I also admire that Kory uses what he buys and tries new techniques and really enjoys the different things to experiment with.

That is something lacking in me and I need to be more adventurous with my supplies! Maybe I'm using all my stored up supplies vicariously through Kory!

Kory really has inspired me to scrapbook outside my man-made scrapbooking box I've created and test the limits a bit.

When I get through scrapping this last cruise I may play with my micro glitter and twinkling H2Os a bit.

Kory's energy and enthusiam is just infectious to me and I love it! I also love the input of our men here. Mister Mr. adds so much.

So many different personalities here but somehow they all blend to make this a really cool place.

  • designguyKORY Said:
Calling it 'PayDay Friday' is just something fun I decided to title a shopping trip a few weeks/months ago- and cuz it rhymed in a fun way to say way, it stuck and I've kept saying it- I am not living paycheck to paycheck. I also don't wait until my payday to buy something. I also don't have to wait until my payday to buy something.

I really believed my post to be all in fun- I certainly wasn't telling the forum to abandon responsibilities and go into debt to buy up the Bo Bunny.

I certainly didn't imagine that my post would cause any concern or lead for me to discuss my finances.

If I had said, 'ohhh it is payday, I've been living on two dollars a day for a week, now I can go spend all my money on paper!,' then maybe, I would expect it.

I also was NOT saying 'support the economy,' in any way other than just a joke- I didn't mean it as a DEMAND to all- to go buy things.

I have a great job. Sometimes I even have more than one job. Not because I have to, but because I enjoy stage managing plays and since I also get paid when I stage manage, it's a double bonus- fun and more money. I also surprisingly don't spend money as wildly on other things- I've never even had a car payment because I'm happy with my big old truck, and I see no need to spend much more than I could ever spend on scrap supplies, just so I can drive a flashy car.

You can also set your mind to rest about my future. I have savings. I have things set up. I don't think I've really worried about money for nearly twenty years. Yes, I'm old enough to say 'twenty years ago, when I got my first apartment and didn't have money to spend on hobbies.'

So, don't worry about me. I do the math. I do my OWN math.

::::Maybe you do have savings set aside for the important things, and your paycheck is used for bonus items. That's perfectly OK.:::::

That would be okay? I am so glad you've cleared that for me, and I have your approval.

I also hate to say it, but I don't even believe that your 'concern' is genuine. Based on other posts you have made, you seem very unhappy about something and you don't care much to see anyone living too joyfully. I'm sorry for that.

-kory




Kory, please don't change a thing. I love reading about your Payday Friday's. Like others have said, you are an inspiration. I love seeing the bargains that you get and I love reading your stories. They always make me giggle.

Why, thank you!

And thank everyone for your kind words!

I will admit that I was a bit more than offended that someone would talk down to me like that AND question my finances, but I never once considered changing one thing- I will still hunt for my famous bargains (although many of you have been beating me at my own game, lately!!!) and I'll still post my crazy stories.

I actually put up with lots of that kinda thing- and it's usually the same demographic that does it- I remember once, when I worked in travel, a person berated me for weeks, she was jealous that I had a better schedule than she did and I didn't have kids, she didn't think I should spend any money to go on vacation- I was 'too old' to be going on 'a spring break trip' and I should be doing this or that, she loudly voiced her disapproval that a coworker and I went out to eat every PAYDAY FRIDAY- saying we shouldn't waste money on going out to eat THAT often.... and on and on. And when I would ask why my life seemed to bother her- she couldn't give me a real answer. Some people just don't like to see other people living happy, happenin' lives, I guess.

But, anyways- thank you all for your kind words. "If I could love, I would love you all."

;-)

I've started making a mini-book for my boss, this evening. Not because I'm a beep-kisser, but because I actually love her! She's going out of town to visit her daughter in 64 days (She reminded me today, lol) and I thought it would be great to give her something to put some photos in and remember her trip. I'm using those 1.00 chipboard albums form Ms, which I only had to give up one tin of canned beans to buy, if you're interested.

Seriously Kory.....if you spend yourself into the poor house, and have nowhere to go, Im sure we would all take turns lending you a couch or a basement til you got back on your feet....

Provided you brought all your toys and let us play too!

Then your blog posts could be about the generosity of (most) other scrappers and seeing the country! Win-win!

I happen to LOVE Ramen noodles. And those more 'upscale' ramenesque noodles, oh what're the called? I forget. And they're 'upscale' cuz they cost fifty cents more. lol

When I was young and just starting out in the world, if my roommate and I weren't 'dating for dinner,' we'd cook the cheapest dinners in the world. One night, just to take it to the extreme, we heated a can of corn over candle. Awww, I remember the penniless days so fondly. And no matter what- no matter how poor I was, I was always happy back in those days!

Put my name on the list - we've got a tiny guesthouse (one room - like a little hotel room but private with its own bath) - the front door of the guest house goes to the driveway and the opposite french doors open to the pool.

Kory you are welcome to it when you are on your homeless route and travelling through Florida.

Maybe we should work out a schedule for Kory so he will know who gets him when.

I had a roomate, Paula. We were best friends in kindergarten when I was 5 and she was 4 1/2 and we are best friends today - and we are both 62.

We were so broke when we got our first apartment. The deal was - which ever one of us had to date had to eat light and get a nice doggy bag for the other one. So when I had a date she got something decent for dinner and when she had a date I got nice leftovers. If we both had dates - we really ate well.

Some days our food budget was 15 cents which bought a can of spinach or a can of stewed tomatoes. But we were always able to scrape together the money for a donut with white stuff inside and chocolate, whipped cream and a cherry on top. Those were 15 cents.

We had a big bowl for a centerpiece full of take out packets of ketchup, mustard and other condiments so we never had to buy them.

Sometimes if someone asked one of us out on a date to a movie or something else that cost something we'd say, "If you will buy me a bag of groceries instead I'll cook them for you. Then we ate REALLY at well. On guy bought me a dozen steaks and a bag of potatoes. He didn't mind if Paula stuck around for dinner so we had steak and potatoes. What a nice change from a can of spinach.

What memories!

Surviving the lean years and having to be imaginative and struggle a bit - its such a good feeling to make it. I wouldn't trade my struggling years in my first apartment for anything.

Got company coming in this weekend and then the guest house is empty! It's super tiny but very comfortable and has a queen-sized bed.

Do wish it was big enough for a kitchen area and a sitting area or living room, but its much smaller than that.

I am loving my two templates! I need MORE! I really need the 'bricks' one! Right now, I just have clocks and the, oh, I forget what it's called. Kinda looks like biscuits. Not the kind you eat, but the kind you buy at Home Depot. And speaking of the woodworking kind of biscuits- they are cheap and adaptable to so many kinds of projects!! I need to go buy some and make up a few project ideas for my blog! I need to start advertising the fun-ness of the Home Depot Craft Store!

The biscuits are little thin almost oval looking pieces of wood that are used to join two pieces of wood together. A slot on each piece of wood, then usually a small amount of wood glue in the slot and then the biscuit joins the 2 pieces together.
that's from all my days watching HGTV!!

Kory, you mentioned in another thread using the cardboard from wine boxes for scrap projects becasue it is strong.

My husband saves the plastic bags inside and we use them for pool toys. Every summer we throw 2 or 3 in the pool and everyone sits on them and rides around - its amazing how many people like them better than actual pool toys designed for the same purpose.

When you sit on them you go below the water level but your neck and head are above water. Or you can put more or less air and the floating level is different.

THey look like man-o-wars (those jellyfish things from the ocean) but since they come out of wine boxes we call them wine-o-wars.

Okay, giving the thread back.

Please post pictures bc that would be helpful, you know, in deciding where you will be staying.
This thread was the most fun I've ever had while waiting for glue to dry

I will take your word for it about the romper. I'm trying hard not to visualize.

Not necessary to play baby at our house. My husband already thinks he's the baby.

Kory, as much as I love you and would welcome you at my house, you in a romper is a visual I just didn't need! But it certainly gave me a laugh this morning!
Now the bad news: you're grounded for being an enabler! I stopped in Half Price Books after work yesterday to pick up a tin of those little word stamps, well I couldn't decide which I really wanted and ended up with 2 of them! You're such a bad boy!
Last note: I need anyone in the OKC area to clear the roads around 3:00PM today. That's when I leave work and I will be speeding to My Heart's Fancy to pick up at least 1 Daniel Torrente stamp (again thanks to Kory's enabling skill) and I don't need anyone blocking my path! LMAO!
I love this thread, it just makes my day! Who would have thunk it would go from Debby Downer to adopting Kory? LOL!

DANGIT, I'm jealous- I wanna go to My Hearts Fancy, too. I love those stamps. I wanted to see if she had got the Tim Holtz Alpha Cards in- I'm gonna be hoppin around like crazy til I get my hands on some. I don't know what I'll do with them- I should get two sets, so that I'm not worried about 'preserving' them. lol

Apparently instead of GOING to this store, I need to stay far far away!
