Garage Sale.... FOR SCRAPBOOKING

You know you have it pretty bad when your hobby takes priority over your puggy. I had a wonderful invite to The Pug Party in Chicago and Pug Fest in Loves Park. I unfortunately blew them off to my new addiction:PAPER CRAFTING. Also, in less than 2 weeks I had finish my bff's mini album. OF course all of this would have been REALLY easy if I could find my other friend who held the pictures! gerr... Anyways, let us continue with the ODE TO 6 Hours of GLORIOUS Papercrafting.....

*hangs head in shame*

Swear to God in heaven, when it comes to a "need" and a cheap price - I am so at that store. Than when it comes to http://www.windycityscrapbooking.com/... all bets are off.










I now am the proud owner of a paint can with a fiskers apron that can hold LOADS of stuff and has tons of pockets and did we say PORTABLE? YES INDEEDY.










Also I now am a proud owner of the following used items: xyron,buttons, ribbon, STAMPS GALORE, mini album and the Love, Elise 52 Challenges book!! (Sidenote here on the Love, Elise book... OKAY the love stuff is kinda gag me with a pitchfork feeling - however, I hate making fun of it because I think it is so sad when any relationship breaks up... anyways). I will say this book is tres fun. I can actually learn how to make BUTTONS. WOOT.

I bought so much stuff for a RIDICULOUSLY CHEAP. These six hours at three different stores(archivers and Micheals too) just made my new hobby all the more reasonable to me. During the 6 hours... I because a Stamper. I am now hotly - no pun intended -looking for a heater/embosser to emboss my xmas cards and trying to figure out exactly WHAT image I want to do for my xmas cards. But omg that embosser thingy looks SO DANG COOL.

However, I have to finish the halloween cards first!!











As you can see - I have only made it one card and I am not even DONE! And you can't see this stamp that I bought for the back - "handcrafted because you are PRICELESS" - isnt that cute? Also I broke down and bought a Martha Stewart scorer. *flails* I can NOT WAIT until she gets her xmas stuff out.

So I am so excited about http://categorystories.blogspot.com/ introduced to me by an amazingly TALENTED Layout/scrapper and pug lover..Martha at http://mugsyboo.blogspot.com/
