Mini Shopping Spree

Hello everybody and happy Wednesday. I'm so glad it's almost the weekend. I need to get back to some much needed sleep. Week 2 of back to school is underway. Farrah has homework already. Gabby doesn't have any yet. She has been adjusting well but I know she'd rather be in daycare. Too bad young'n because you are smart enough and old enough for school. So I took them to school today and Gabby had such a breakdown, she cried and cried. Her teacher said she hasn't cried all week. We chopped it down to my presence there. That I can believe, my children tend to act up when I am picking them up.

So on to my shopping spree. Armed with some 50% and 40% off coupons I made my way to Michael's. I found nothing I wanted to buy. I few days ago I purchased these items:

Isn't the stamp cool? It's Recollections. I love it and glad
I was able to use a coupon with it. The paper pad is American
Crafts. The Sizzix dies were on sale too. I don't know how
I will use them but they are a cool addition to my staple

Love the colors of the ppr flowers and the fabric ones

I picked up these awesome new embossing folders for my Cuttlebug @ Joann's. It was love @ first sight! I'm loving the honey comb and lattice patterns and even the packaging is cool. 

The 4 pk was $17.99, honey comb $7.99 & Lattice $5.99
of course I got the 4 pk 50% off and honey comb 40% off

I was able to snag these with 50% & 40% off @ Joann's

Now the real challenge is to actually use these products. Help me LOL!!! Oh I forgot, Joann's has some new anywhere window punches, I saw "Lattice" and "Honey Comb" but you have to buy the punch starter set in order to use the whole system. I didn't get them this week. I may get them next week if I find a use for them. They are cute but I don't like the fact that you can't use the negative portion of the punched shape. Well, that's all for now. Have a good one. 


  1. Poor baby, I hope tomorrow goes smoother for her. Love, love, love the stuff you picked up!

    1. She will be fine because I wont be the one to drop her off. Smile.

  2. Heading to Michaels today with my coupons! lol Their sale this week is awesome! Your finds are fabulous! I know you can find some fierce ways to use those scrappy finds! :):) With my sons all grown up now...your post makes me reflect on the "good ol days".
