Day Trip Across the Canadian/US Border

Today we took a trip across the Canadian/US border ( BC/WA)
I got some cute Sticko stickers at target for $0.99 each! Valentine heart ones and Easter glitters. As well as some Valentines paper... also $0.99 each.

Then we had to make a quick stop to Michaels =)
I didn't find anymore Studio G stamps, but i did pick up a crop-a-dile!
I was going to use my 50% of coupon, but apparently it was on sale, so it came to $20.99 + taxes... not bad =) Now if i could only learn to use it, maybe i can finally bring out my stash of eyelets hiding in the closet.. hehe any tips would be welcomed!

I'm working on a few Valentines Cards, so i will post as soon as they are done!
Thanks for stoppin' by!

What a Surprise!

This week has started off very well for me.

I'm very new to all this crafting and i don't want to spend alot of money i don't have just try out new products. So i figured if i did some blog hopping to see all the AMAZING work that everyone has done, i could pick up some pointers and decide what products are worth spending money on.

As i'm scrolling through these blogs, i see candy! I LOVE CANDY!... well blog candy as they are called here..... hehe And so i leave a comment on the blogs and enter to win all these yummy crafting supplies.

Hope and wishing i would win, and lo and behold i did WIN! 2 in fact.

the first is from Jess ... check out her blog... so cute!
and the second is from Juliana Michaels .... she's got a great blog to check out....
So there you have it, you can't win if you don't enter!
