Shopping Spree!

Wheeeeee! I finally got my $70 gift certificate from my Honorable Mention in scrapbook.com's Lucky 7 contest. But, wouldn't you know it...they were sold out of nearly EVERYTHING that I wanted! They were out of all the Love, Elsie stuff that I wanted (the airplane album and some alpha stickers). And, the one thing that I wanted most: the Sassafra Lass Oliver and Friends clear stamps were gone, gone, gone. :0( Even the Hambly stuff that I wanted was sold out, and I actually resisted going to the Hambly shop and placing my own order over there. It's too close to Christmas, and I shouldn't be spending anymore money on myself. Especially since, this morning, I bought these:



Rachel from over at Red Velvet Art made them for me. I can't wait to get them home, and situate them in their new home on my couch! Thanks, Rachel...you're such a sweetie!

I've got some fun plans for the weekend. Maybe a trip to a paint-your-pot place with Tina. And, possibly a trip to the zoo with the kiddos (if the weather holds out). Anyone else have any great weekend plans?

Hey! I found your blog from your link at Poppy Ink. I followed it and was happy to see that you were also a HM at Scrapbook.com. I got my GC via email and have already spent more than half of my $70, lol! It goes quickly. Anyway, just wanted to say hi and I'm glad you posted on my popartist thread-your words made me smile. Have a good day. ~Sally Davidson

I'm so glad you like your love birds! I'm feeling the Hambly urge, too, especially with their new stuff!
Hope all is well in Alaska!
