Lynn, I gave myself a $25 budget for January. But in truth, my budget is $0. I just didn't want to set myself up to fail the first month of the challenge.
Unlike most people on SCS, I don't have tons of supplies. But I do have enough paper, embellishments and adhesive to keep me scrapping and card making for awhile. I've also got enough rubber stamps to give me some stamping variety. What I need (OK, want LOL) is a little more variety in my Big Shot tools. That will come in time. I just need to learn to be patient.
