Better late…

…then never, isn’t that what they say?

I’m a little bit disappointed that I didn’t discover ‘everythingbyhand’ on ebay much sooner (or at least before I ordered from ‘meganssecrets’). That would have saved me weeks of waiting, that’s for sure. I think I placed an order for embossing folders and I got them today!

Maybe it’s just compared to how long my other folders took, but it felt like it took no time at all! I love it. Here are my new folders:

So let me try to remember what I got…the one that looks like bubbles, the square mosaic, the bloom dots (?), something that kinda looks like a doily, and a script folder! HAHAHAHA, sorry I’m not so fab on the names, but I know half of you reading this probably own more folders than I do.

I know I said I was pretty much reaching the end of my shopping binge, but I would also like the butterfly emboss and cut folder. We’ll save that for another time because I picked up a couple more things…

Tonight was date night with The Mister (usually it’s on Wednesdays, but The Mister had that union meeting yesterday). Anyways, we went over to Chapters and wandered around the aisles together holding hands and of COURSE we happened to wander over to the Crafts and Hobbies section, and I got this:

Can I just say, WOW!?! I love this book. It’s by the same makers of that other reference book I got the other day and with these two, I don’t think I really need any other books. These books are thick and FULL of fun techniques and ideas. I will be sitting down sometime this long weekend with my Post-it tabs, for sure!

Okay, the guilt is close to creeping up on me, but I’m pushing it to the back of my mind because I PROMISE, aside from the things that I’ve already paid for and just waiting to come in, this last purchase is it for me and I’ll get to the creatin’ and makin’.

I ordered the DS today from Kim! I think I could have done myself a favor by getting this first. The welding feature I think will make it worth it all on its own. I’ll be welding and cutting a bunch of titles to bring with me to the all day crop, as I’m not sure if I’ll be bringing my little baby with me.

…and here lies the end of my post(s) for today. Wishing you a productive long weekend and a happy and blessed Easter!

A new nook for me…

Posted by Catherine on March 20, 2008

…over at Scribe’s Nook!

I don’t remember if I mentioned it yesterday, but I was driving home and I happened to glance at a shop called Scribe’s Nook and my eyes zeroed in on the fact that it was a decorative stamp store. The irritating thing (besides finding out it was JUST right there, not more than 5 minutes away from my own house) was the fact that I’d been in this store before! Before I found out how fabulous stamping and colouring and cardmaking was!

So, it was closed yesterday and I said that I would go in today on my lunch hour as they’re always just about to close every time I get off of work.

Can I tell you that I stood around with my head tilted up staring at the walls full of stamps with my mouth hanging open? There’s so many stamps! And NICE stamps, not those weird-looking ones at M’s for like, $29.99! I found these two cute little babies and made them MINE, ALL MINE:

I’ve loved these stamps ever since I first laid eyes on SusieB’s cards. Since the shop was so close to the house, I ran home really quickly and stamped a couple onto some nice white cardstock! I loves them!

So to celebrate my wonderful little find, I’m offering a RAK for the next four commenters, if they wanted to play with some image stamps. I will message you or get in contact with you for your addresses. This’ll also be the first time I’m sending out image stamps, so if anyone can also give me a heads-up on the standard way of doing it (what size paper do I stamp them on to send..etc.)

The other thing I was able to pick-up before I got ahold of my self-restraint:

Oh YAY! I was looking all over for these at M’s and I can’t believe I found it so close to my house! Perfect timing for Easter – my bunnies are going to be all nice and fluffy!

I can’t wait to get home to play. Happy day-before-the-long weekend all!
