WOYWW #235 - Black Friday Stash Frenzy!!


This last week has flown by, can't believe that it is time for WOYWW already and that my time with JT has been and gone (she'll be back at Christmas). For those of you wondering what WOYWW is, go over to Stamping Ground and join Julia and the rest of the gang for the weekly global desk nose.

So JT and I had a fun Black Friday enhancing our stash :) I thought I would share my haul - some of it came from JT, as part of our usual $20 challenge (we have to buy each other craft things within a budget and  certain parameters - e.g spots, hearts, 50% off). I also managed to do ALL of my Christmas shopping - score!! Everyone except Hubby.

The main photo is of what 'fell' into my basket...Hexagon dies (from JT), various sized bling, studio calico paper pads ($1.49), thickers letters, Darice embossing folders...3 kinds (only $2 each set), my coffee mug - not part of the haul :), Tim Holz blueprint stamps, Ranger Ink blender,  star stencil, birdie stencils (from JT), fabric stickers...what will I be doing with these? My glasses, random embellishments and my tweezers.

I also got new Promarkers!! Yay!! JT bought 2 sets in the sale and we each chose 12 colours that we liked the best...they are so yummy. I can't wait to get a new bulb for the craft zimmer, so I can use the new colours.

Here is a photo of something I have made using some of the new goodies..

I used washi tape that JT bought me and a Tim Holz blueprint stamp..I left the section above the stamp blank, as I thought the recipient might want to stamp / add their own sentiment..

Mucho goodies for me to play with...I am hoping to swing some serious time off over Christmas so I can have a proper session. In the mean time, Hubby and I will be heading to Atlantic City this weekend taking advantage of the free stay that we got following my winning birthday weekend.

I'm off for a nose now.
