I May Have Gone Shopping

While I was away I managed to sneak in a visit to Michaels & Joanns - thank you Joanns for your fabulous sales plus discount coupons (40% and 50% off an item - yes, please!). How naive was I? I thought my newly acquired goodies would fit in one photo! After I took the photos I realised I missed a couple of items - stamp press mini & original, sizzix ticket die and a stamp set.

I thought I would share it with you all. When the BFF saw my collection she pronounced that I had a problem. However, her exclamation was soon followed by lots of oohing and aahing. I think I am not alone in my addiction. I'm sure she won't mind if they come over for a play date some time soon.

I was stoked to see Joanns supply of unmounted, self-cling, rubber stamps. I love acrylic stamps for their price and ease of storage but there's no doubt in my mind that rubber stamps provide much better stamped images. Needless to say, a few sets came home with me that day (30% off - yes, please!). I can't wait to play with them and the punches. There's also a piece of green paper that is printed to look like crocodile skin and feels like suede - unfortunately there was only one sheet in the particular green I liked.

Why am I blogging when there are new toys to play with.......?

A Hiatus of Sorts

Instead of simply not updating my blog for a while I will just put it out there that I will be on a crafting hiatus for a few weeks (6-7 weeks - that sounds a long time when I actually write it down). However will you survive I hear you exclaim - don't worry, I will be back (with or without Arnie impersonation - your choice!). Because of time and supply constraints I wasn't able to do my first project for Create for Create in March as planned. But I am scheduled to create a project for Create for Create when the hiatus is over - not before mid-May. I'm looking forward to it as it is weird walking past my creative space and seeing it cleared (I mean, you can actually see some of the table top and the other half has been folded down, most of the floor is visible too!). Must rectify that as soon as possible. See you in May!
