Love You

I love cards like this where I get to go through all my scraps. I just punch a ton of hearts in any papers I like. I knew I wanted white so I didn't do too much cream based stuff. Then I picked out the hearts I wanted to actually use. I dumped the rest in a little jar I have for such an event. They are all on foam tape. Easy peasy!

Today I'm going to tell you a silly thing I do. When I feel like some retail therapy I pick an online store I like. Last night it was I go through all the categories that ever interest me and fill a cart. I had like $250 in my cart. Then I walk away for a bit. Then I come back and edit the cart. I usually get rid of the expensive splurge things first. I then try to decide how much enjoyment I will REALLY get from each thing. Get rid of the things I don't think are then worth it. At this point my cart was about $60. Then I figure out what the shipping and such would be. And how long it would take to arrive. I love online shopping, but I don't like to wait more than about a week for stuff. Then I usually just empty the cart and that's the whole exercise. No actual stuff purchased. It is so super weird. This morning I did sneak away from the fam to hit a sale at Hobby Lobby. I bought two paper packs and two single sheets of paper. I like them. I'm happy. It was $11. Two of the packs I had in my online cart they did have there, part of the 50% off sale, but guess what? I didn't like them in real life! Weird.

No lesson to that story, just random sharing.
