How was your weekend?


Finally some fun! Normally I just stay home and take care of my puppies and work. This weekend Archiver's was having a FREE make and take weekend. It just so happens I only had to work the morning shift on Friday and it was payday. Soooooooo ....... I gathered up all my coupons, Hobby Lobby, Michael's, Scrapbook store by my house, and Archiver's. I wanted to give Archiver's enough time to set up, but not enough time to get busy so my first stop was Hobby Lobby, not too much there so I only spent $6.00 or so on some storage stuff for my new Justrite stamps. On to Michael's I got a pail of paper flowers for 40% off. ( Linda's challenge at STV). Then about 11:30 on to Archiver's which is about 1 hour away. WOW they were already busy. I shopped first because I didn't want the samples to sway me into getting more than I wanted to spend! I had a 30% off coupon and I used it on a new stamp set by Tim Holtz. I also got some ribbon my latest obsession and the Tumbled Glass distressed ink because I just found the color to be beautiful. After the hour ride back I was too tired to stop at my scrapbook store. Since all these stores are within 5 minutes from my house, except Archiver's. I could go on Saturday. Saturday came and I went to my scrapbook store oh my! They will be getting in Heartfelt Creations stamps and dies and they just started carrying Justrite stamps. I must have died and gone to heaven. Then they ushered me back to the 75% off rack ...... I'm going to quit there. Oh and I had to go back to Michael's today to use the new 40% off coupon they gave me with my purchase from Friday. Oh yes I will be eating Tuna fish for every meal for the next two weeks. I better get some Ink to some of this new stuff. Most of my STV challenges are done, I have about 5 other challenges to do so ..........
Have a great week I'll be seeing you tomorrow I plan on stamping til I can't see anymore.

Sounds like you had a whole bun of fun!! Wish I could have gone shopping (and looking) with you!! Tuna fish is going to taste prety darn good while you're playing with those new goodies!

Don't you just love a day of shopping for bargains and supplies. I am glad that you have had a great week-end and looking forward to seeing what you create.
