Good Stuff

Most of my impulse buying has been online of late since we don't really have any super great stores near us. Although, I did have to resist some yarn that wanted to come home with me at Michael's last night.

It was nice to be able to catch a glimpse of some things in real life. I hate to ever hear that a scrapbook store is going out of business, but I am still more than willing to help them find a new home for anything that might jump out at me. Not to mention the fact that I had a GC for Archiver's that was begging to be used. Anyway, I was restrained--probably because I got like 4 phone calls while I was shopping. I did walk away with some fun new goodies from the two stores. Now if I had been driving a truck, you can bet I would have come home with a table or two from the LSS crop room. Maybe I can find some inspiration in this pile. I mean I have to get on the ball before all the new goodies start hitting the shelves!

I really did a lot of crafty-type stuff before Christmas, but it's funny that I didn't take any pics. I was so intent on getting stuff finished that I never broke out the camera, and now it's all gone. Let's see...I ended up making 1 knitted scarf, 1 pair of earrings, 4 sets with planners, post-it note holders, and pens, another set with a planner and address book, a knitted bootie and hat set, and all sorts of edible goodies. I still have my planner to do, so maybe I can remember to post it.

Probably my favorite online SB store had several different special sales over the last few months which I couldn't resist. I had done pretty well convincing myself I don't need to buy scrap stuff if I haven't scrapped since June. Anyway, I finally sat down and used some of the good stuff I was unable to resist today. This comes only a week after finding my table under the remnants of all the Christmas stuff. Anyway, I'm obviously going to have lots of pics to work with from the last year, and here are the first of those. It's a good thing I'm not hung up on doing things in order or being "caught up."
