Well I was out of town, but didn't let that stop me!

From spending after my January no spending pact was over!

I ordered from Eat Cake, Pink Cat Studios, Viva Las Vegastamps, went to a Michaels and got two of their dollar stamps and like 4 sheets of paper, and went back to the SAME Michaels and got one of those Cutterbug dies. I got the swirly embossing design. I'm trying to use it with a rolling pin for now. I really want to know if I can use it with a pasta machine squisher thingie. I'm generally too cheap to just buy the cutterbug machine. (BIRTHDAY IDEA! ;) ) Oh and all the owners of the stamp companies I ordered from emailed with me and were so friendly and nice. It was my first ever Pink Cat order but I really liked them, so we will see, but I bet it's not my last order.

Also when I was at my Mom's she gave me an early Birthday present of a stamp set she got from Darcie's. She said the shipping was slow, but I asked around and that's not normal for them. I'm not sure why it was for my poor mom. But in any event these stamps are great. I got the Santa on the Beach set JCS-0001 is the item number. Anyhow it comes in it's own case, they are unmounted but on EZ Mount clingy stuff already and trimmed already as well. They come with a little idea sheet with item numbers for the stuff they used and a full color index of your set, it all fits in the case. The case is really cool, it looks like a CD case really, only it's a bit bigger to fit the largish set. I'll keep her on my list to order from in the future for sure! Mom also picked up 4 small cat stamps at a thrift store, so that's fun too. :)

So that's all my shopping news.

We had a good visit down south. It was good to see everyone. I'm glad to be home though. :) Oh and our mailbox was STUFFED when we got home. Thank heavens three cool things for Brian or I think he was gonna sulk at all the tons of cool stuff I got!

Have a great day!
