Christmas Cards...

Tonight I managed to make a few Christmas cards as I realized that the holiday will be here before I know it!! So Here are the two cards that I am going to be sending out this year. I like the top one much better as it is embossed with the cuttlebug but I cannot see myself making a bunch of that card. I decided when I was at the Fiskars sale that I should pick out some paper for my Christmas cards so I could get a bunch of one pattern so I managed to find two that I liked. They are have shiney circles and sparkles too which you can see in the photo below on the left portion of the card.

I cannot believe that this is my third post in one day. I cannot seem to post once a week most of the time and today I get on here three times. Wow...I hope I can keep this up!!

are you ready for this?? goes.
As I promised before, I said I would post pics of the Fiskars sale that I attended. OMG I just went through everything to take photos and it took me forever to get it all out on the table and I didn't even get pictures of everything. I have a stack of paper that is 6 inches high and I figured it would be rather difficult to take a pic of that since its just a stack of paper. Most of the papers are Heidi Grace papers and I LOVE them!! Some of them are shimmery, glittery, and even flocked. Many of these papers I could purchase in a store for $1.00 or more per sheet and I got 105 sheets for $6.00. WHAT A DEAL!! Basically they had everything pre-packaged in sample kits so you got one of everything in the rub-on line or papers. I got a bunch of stuff I probably won't ever use but it came with so much that I will! Here are some of the pics I took...

So here is a photo of most of what I is hard to see but there is a lot there. There are bags of rub-ons and the bags had over 20 different sheets in them for anywhere from $2.00-$4.00. Paper trimmers were $3.00 for an opened one and $5.00 for one in the package. I also got my mom a large rotary trimmer for $10 and they are usually around $70. Opened punches were $1.00 so I got some border punches and 5 squeeze punches. Can't go wrong for $1.00! I did also get a package of 6 small squeeze punches for $5.00. Well they were selling them for $5.00 but when I got up to the register with my stuff I didn't have any idea as to how much my total would be so I told the guy that I had decided that I didn't want a couple things in my boxes and I help up the package of punches and he asked if I would take them if they were free. I about fell on the floor. I said "Are you serious?" and he said...sure just put them in the box. Then he whispered..."I would rather give them to you free than have to go put them back out there again." I thanked him and let him keep adding up my stuff.

Here is a box that cost me $15.00. Now I know you can't see what is in it but it has 96 different Heidi Grace stickers, alphabets, and embellishments. Basically it is one of everything from all of the Heidi Grace lines from this year. What an amazing deal!! Below is a pic of what is in the box...

Here is the contents of one of my $4.00 bags of rub-ons. Ranged anywhere from letters to holiday stuff.

I also got a bunch of other things such as extra cutting blades, 2 large cutting mats, some fiskars templates for the Ultra Shape Express, adhesive, pop-up dots, and more. I had so much fun and could not believe that I left there with only spending $125.00. When I got home and showed my mom...she was upset that I hadn't purchased much for her. She ended up buying $25.00 of the stuff from me so I only spend $100.00! So yes, all of what is pictured above plus more for ONLY ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS!!! Oh what a day it was! It was an early Merry Christmas to ME!

snowy days...

So today I look outside and am not ready to venture out anytime soon. IT IS SNOWING!!! Well I was already outside early this morning to run to Target. I hate having to run to the pharmacy and I needed the prescription TODAY! I decided to choose Target over Walgreens when my prescription was super expensive and realized that Walgreens is not the place to go unless you absolutely have to. So now I have my stuff at Target and not going to their pharmacy before, we showed up at 6:10 pm yesterday which was Saturday to find out that the pharmacy closes at 6:00 pm. So we had to run out again this morning just because I needed it today. Yuck!! I hate it when things happen like that. So we drug the whole family out this morning in the freezing cold because Nathan decided that we should go grocery shopping too. Well we were back by 10:30 so we didn't waste too much of our day.

I love the makes it look so pretty outside and I want to go out and play in it with the kids. But today I think I will stay inside and try to clean up my scrapbook room. Last night I sat on the couch and went through all 600 photos that I just got in the mail yesterday. YES, I said 600! I am all ready for the crop that I am attending on Dec. 13th. I got the photos back and I also ordered my new ATG adhesive gun yesterday with plenty of adhesive to last awhile! Now I have to go begin getting things ready because I want to be organized this time when I go. I also want to take a picture of my awesome purchase from Friday afternoon! OGM you won't believe it. Fiskars in Wausau had a huge warehouse sale and I got a TON of stuff...and I mean a ton for really cheap! I will try to take a photo of everything that post later!!

Gotta go get some crafty stuff done!!
