If you know me, you know I LOVE eBay and Tim Holtz' stuff! Put the two together and I can get into BIG trouble (but it is oh so fun! lol) Last week I was checking out stuff (because I need more, lol) I found a "few" Visual Artistry sets listed, I put bids in on 10 auction. Didn't win one of them. Not one to give up easily, I found more auctions including one for "The Journey" set and put a bid on it (at the same price I had bid on a previous auction I didn't win.) THEN I found an auction with a lot of 7 sets of the stamps that included "The Journey". I debated for a bit on whether I should bid or not since there would be a duplicate set if I happened to win both auctions. The debate was short! The lot of 7 sets arrived today!
Last Sunday I stopped by Stampers' Corner (my fav LSS) to get some more tape for the nifty tape gun we received on the cruise. I was being good, on a mission, just the tape, NOTHING else. Honest, that was the plan. I ran in, got the tape, walked up to the cash register so far so good. . . and then I see boxes and boxes in the classroom being rifled through by some women. "Is that a sale?" I asked Amber. It was. Wood stamps for F I F T Y CENTS each!!! No matter what size!!!!! 4 sets of clear stamps bundled together for $2.00 for each bundle! How is a girl NOT to buy stuff?? Well 30 minutes (maybe an hour. . .who keeps track of time when shopping a sale?) and $48. lighter I left the store! (Too bad I can't lose weight as fast as I can spend money. lol!)
Now I just have to find time to play! Speaking of playing I am having a Scrappin’ Saturday at the house on January 16, 2010. If you are interested in dropping by, let me know.
December 30 my AWESOME husband and I celebrated our 8th anniversary! We went to Frank Fats (the original one on L Street) in Sacramento for dinner! Before dinner we wander through a couple of antique stores I had just discovered. In one of the stores, they had bags and bags of used stamps for sale for $1.00 per bag, so I grabbed a couple with thoughts of using them on ATCs for THE cruise.
Today, I went to Scrapmap to get to Jim West's blog to add it to my list of blogs I follow. I haven't been following it, but I always mean to . . . because last time I was there he had just giveaway some trips. While at www.Scrapmap.com, I noticed there was a new logo picture for Tim’s New England/Canada cruise. . . it includes a used postage stamp. lol Great minds think a like!!!!!! (PLEASE let me have my delusions that I have a great mind too, please! Thanks! lol)
A couple of weeks ago, I won a prize on Lori’s blog The package arrived earlier this week! She was EXTREMELY generous!! Thank you again Lori!
I will post a picture when I make something with the goodies you sent!
