When Mike would get home, I would run out. You know we would need something from Walmart and I would just happen to run by the LSS or Michael's too ;) Here are some of the things I picked up.
First up is from Michael's. They were having dollar days, which in some cases means multiple dollars for one item. I picked up a couple of older MME 6x6 paper pads that were 2 for $8, three lovely new Sharpies for $1 each (I love these for my Project Life) and lastly, some AWESOME little bags! Check those puppies out. Now they were a WHOPPING $4.99 for the package, and I debated about coming back with a coupon, but I couldn't wait.
I picked these up from my LSS. There are different patterns on each large journaling card. I'm planning on trimming them down to use on cards and in Project Life. I should have opened the pack for you, so you could see more... Sorry about that.
Now this I actually ordered from Ebay. Our old babysitter has asked me to make some Rolodex birthday calendars and when I made one for my sister, in the past, I remember thinking how much easier it would have been if I would have had the die. Guess what, Sizzix doesn't make the die anymore. Ebay to the rescue! Found one, and picked it for $14.99 with free shipping!
My DESK (if you scroll down in this post there are some decent shots of it, promise) has cubbies on each side of it. I picked up two of these bins to try out to see if they will work for my stuff. They were $3.97 at Walmart, the cheapest I've found for these type of canvas bins.
Now this beauty took forever to find. My current craft area is in our unfinished basement and I'll soon be moving upstairs to our current family room, which is actually the bonus room above our garage. The other day, while searching craft rooms on Pinterest I kept coming across these cool three tiered stands and even found THIS TUTORIAL that I LOVED! I was all about making it this weekend. I searched high and low, all over town for cheap cake pans. They don't exist. You can buy brand new ones though, with a coupon, for around $21-25, depending on how big you want your stand. That doesn't include the price of your candlesticks, glue or spray paint (which we already had). I had even tried Home Goods, thinking they might already had a three tiered tray that I liked, it wouldn't be as much fun as making it, but at least I would have one. No luck. Late Saturday afternoon, I was sitting in the living room and I realized Hobby Lobby was the place to go. I checked out their online ad, wire items were 50% off, good sign, and hopped in the car. Upon my arrival, I found this beauty, regular price $29.99, on sale for $15!!! No way I could pass that up!
So now, as you can see, I have quite a bit of organizing to do in my area. I'm hoping to purge and maybe rework the way I have some things situated. I'm really planning my new room out. No new furniture, just the layout and such.
Sorry about the long post today :) Hope you enjoy your Monday. Thanks for stopping by today and I'll see you back here tomorrow!!
