And then there are spellbinders, sizzix, etc. etc. etc.
shhhh....I'm thinking that the larger punch organizer might find it's way here....need to plan for the future, right?!

For basically $66 I can get a 48 ink pad and the classic punch one! MUCH better deal than SU!! (and it's white, which will match the other shelving that I'm recycling!!) and they will fit perfectly on top of the shelves that I have

Well, they won't be in my immediate future, but I signed up for email notes for specials, etc.

I just got some new Spellbinders from Rubbernecker. They were on special (sorry ended yesterday, I think).

I also ordered from ScrapbookAlley, but not sure what's happening with them. First I got a confirmation email, then another asking me to call an 800 #, so I call, talk to some guy from 'India' or somewhere, asking for confirmation on phone, address, etc., saying the bank kicked it back 'cause of the address. The address was correct, so not sure what that was all about. The email said if I didn't call, the order would be cancelled after something like 14 days. Haven't heard anything else.

And I still haven't received my dies that I won from Spellbinders. I sent an email asking, but haven't received a reply yet.

Well....the only reason I'm going to spend the $$ now, is 1) This room REALLY needs to be completed and organized 2) DH just bought himself a new basketball hoop(expensive one) and I think I should get something too!! hehe
Saw the RN sale...just couldn't make up my mind (maybe I'll take a peek again this eveing and see if it is still going on)

Ok....need to go grill up supper. Looks like the sleepover is camping outside (and somehow I got conned into sleeping out there too!!)

Hmmm, that sounds like it should be a GUY thing.

RN didn't have much of a selection - sale was only until supplies last. I got Borderabilities lattice & in spades and lg. & sm. classic inverted scalloped circles. The prices were just about the best I've seen on those, but not everything was the same price. I swear companies put higher prices on the more popular items.

Or you could just be really hard on them and then when they complain, say 'you could have had dad!'

Oh no!! Dad is sleeping out too!! EVERYONE is (including the dog). The boys have one tent and DH and I have the other

I ordered some spellbinders from Cutathome this past week. You can sign up for a coupon that they will send you each month for 40% off. I actually messed up and didn't open my email before I ordered so I didn't have it, but got an e-mail from them stating that THEY applied it (guess since it was pretty obvious that I just opened the account with them)
haven't gotten them yet...but hope to have them soon

I like to use the coupon for the nesties full sets - that way you can save a nice bundle. But I haven't even used my coupon for awhile, since I didn't have any $$ to spend.

I think I need to set up another class doing a osw for Christmas cards -- probably in October. Best get busy on that.

I was really wanting the snowflake (heard that it is suppose to be a limited edition type thing)....got that, the Labels 2 and the daisies. I would like to get more of the sets...just can't decide which one next

There are 2 new snowflakes, and yes they are limited edition till Nov. 30 (I think).

I want to get the vine border (another limited ed.), but I need to get some more $$ first. I spent everything I had left after my SU order.

I couldn't decide which snowflake I wanted (got Snowflake 1 finally). I tried to justify to myself that one cannot have too many snowflakes as all snowflakes are different, but in the end, controlled myself (ok, ok...I still have to place my SU order and was starting to feel a tad guilty....and the fact that I want some other stuff too....)

No, don't feel guilty. Just remember the justification.... ahem... DH bought what?

I only use money I've earned through my workshops and classes, or selling old stamps. Which is why now that I won't have workshops, I really need to set up a couple more classes. The big shot (I'm gonna change the name on that one) and technique classes will be monthly. I could probably do a OSW at least every other month maybe. So far I've had 4 ladies at each class. I don't have space to accommodate a big group unless I get my dining room cleared out and then will have room for at least 8 at that table. If I used both dining and kitchen, 12, unless I pushed it to squeeze in a couple more. I don't see that ever being necessary.

Oh, yeah. Of course now that I don't HAVE to spend all that $$ on SU stuff, I will have more to spend elsewhere. I am so ready!

It was hard making that decision, but there were a few stamp sets that I wanted, and those punches. The remainder was pretty much all cardstock.

yeah.....I NEED to do that today (since I'm pretty much running out of time). I've been toying with the idea of trying out some different card stocks too. I love the Gina K pure luxury for coloring with my copics and would like a higher weight for card bases (WW is soooo flimsy imo)

Survived the campout, hehe. It was actually a perfect evening for it. Cooled to a nice temp

We've been having some cooler weather, only up to low 70's mostly. Forecast says windy this PM and thunderstorms later and rain all night. Leaves are beginning to show some pretty color, not a lot yet, though.

Uggh. Wish we were having your weather. We are suppose to be at 97 again today ( and we are generally 10 deg cooler than down the hill)

ooh...I"m sure there are...I just need to keep spending down...Christmas is coming! Well, if I can figure out a way to make it something I "need for Christmas" then it doesn't count as a gift for myself, right? haha

Suppose to be 90 here today (which is a HUGE improvement from the 100's!!). I went for much need bike ride (YIKES!! We leave on the 20th for our trip down the coast!) and am now going to try and find 3" of space on my messy desk top so that I can color an image (need a card by Wed., and of course have to work tomorrow!)

Well, I'm glad it's not 90 here. Maybe 57. And very windy & cloudy. Sprinkling off an on. We had some nice thunderstorms last night, but mostly they passed to the north of us.

Got my technique challenge card done. Have to upload.

We DESPERATELY need some rain...

Actually stamped an image!! Now to color it. It's not for a challenge (and it took me 8 stinkin' tries to get the thing stamped correctly~~it's a
4 1/2" x 3 1/2" image and I think between my ink pads drying up (time to invest in a new one ....like Archival Jet black for coloring with my Copics) and just plain forgetting how to ink up an image, it took me that many tries!!

Morning, girls. Cold this morning. Mid 40's, but I saw a little FROST on the roof when I got up. It's supposed to get into the 60's. We have a little sunshine right now, but are supposed to get some rain late morning. I got my SU order. Need to return the snowflake punch - keeps getting stuck in the punched position - grrr.
