Woo Hoo !

Notified last week that I won The Proper Gentleman from Graphic 45,(I wish it had been a real man...LOL) along with Bazzill samples. The man in the brown pants came today with my goodies. The pad comes with 20 double sided papers, plus 1 sheet each of coordinating die cuts (1 is borders, the other is tags and shapes), AND the bazzill samples were not just samples, they were 11 12 x 12 sheets ! Really great papers, and the ones I don't like that well have a great reverse side. Still can't believe I won it.

In Crafting Heaven

In Sioux Falls again today, it's the closest place to buy real craft supplies : Hobby Lobby, Michael's, Joanns, Tuesday Morning, TJ Maxx, R Scrapbook Store, Staples and OfficeMax. I'll try to post pictures of my haul when I get home. I have 2 - 50% off Martha Stewart coupons and a regular 40% off anything for Michael's. HL only has the 30% off stained glass - not my thing, but I'll stop by there today and see what they have.

On the way here yesterday, I stopped at 2 Scrappin Ladies in Mitchell. They have a good selection for a small store, and a marvelous clearance section for 75% off. Kioshi and Green at Heart were 50% off, alot of other things at 30% off. I have to be very selective about what I buy, the budget is tight, so nearly everything I buy is on sale or with a coupon.

I'm also "shopping" in my own supplies at home. I have been reorganizing things and finding cool stuff I don't even remember buying ! Does that ever happen to you ?

Well, time to check out of the hotel soon, shop, and then a dr appt at 3, then on the way home to the cats, and Mom and her dog. Dog will act like I've been gone for a month, the cats will ignore me.

Later !
