Today was a wonderful day, except for the little goof I made this morning...I forgot my cell phone at home on the charger. I worried most of the day that someone would call me or I would break down and not be able to call anyone. When I got home this evening it was still on the charger with a dozen missed messages. No emergencies though. Thank goodness!
I was reminded what it was like before we had cell phones and life still went on! Now I wonder why I even worried.
I did get lots of goodies today and talked to a bunch of really nice poeple while standing in the lines. I watched a few Make-n-Takes but did not do any. They were very basic layouts which looked more like free exploration time.
Eyelet Outlet and Brads ~ $1.00 per bag ~ lots of variety. I purchased poodles, saws (for Father's Day), lightbulbs (love your idea), sparkles, winter critters, dalmations, and flowers. If you want to go to the site I have a coupon code for 20% off. It is good only for this month. The site is: http://www.eyeletoutlet.com/ and the on-line code is: April2011.
DollarScrapbooking.net ~ ALL items I picked were $1.00
ScrapYard 329 ~ green and brown fibers and a pack of metal sheets ~ $1.00 each. This vendor had such a great selection of scrapbooking supplies such as Basic Grey and Tim Holtz products.
Scrap-mart ~ Flowers embossing folder ~$3.49
After I left the Scrapbook Expo I planned on going to Michaels. I was hoping to pick up a few more deals before heading home. One of the tables actaully had a manager from one of the stores. I asked for directions and she said turn left out of the parking lot. Well, I turned left but ended up at Disney. After turning around and driving by the resort again, I realized there was another exit she must have been referring to. I finally found three more Michaels after a few tolls, trying to search with the GPS, and remembering where I had seen one in the past. It is a good thing no one was with me. They probablly would not have enjoyed the ride as much as me. : )
Michaels ~ Tim Holtz paper was on clearance for $4.99, plastic containers also on clearance for $1.99, the variety pack, brown gems, and bird images 99 cents. I used my 40% off coupons for the bottom two pieces (red florals and cupcake stickers).
Ross~ Martha Stewart edge punch ~ $3.99
Now I need to get busy! Lots of projects must be made.
