Creative Goodies and in the Zombie Zone

We made it home safe and sound :)
We came home early in order to watch all of this season's The Walking Dead and the new episode starts tonight….so excited!!!!

So I thought since most of my day was traveling in the jeep and sitting on my butt watching TV all day, I would share with you the rest of my shopping goodies :)

The first store I am going to share with you is called Fabric Works.
I have been in this store a couple of times, but before they started selling paper crafts.
I remember they let me shop, even when they were closed and they took me into the back where they were doing a quilting class…that was more than a few years ago.
This year I was given a gift.
Once they learned that I enjoy making mini albums and had a Blog and YouTube channel, Barb gave me a neat tool she invented to help with cutting your papers to the correct size of the chipboard.
I haven't given it a go yet, but she gave me a great demonstration while I was there.
Go here to check out her Perfect Trim Ruler.  It is the yellow tool at the bottom of my photo.

I love those paper clips of the cameras and clocks :)

I honestly didn't think I would find that much at Michael's.
But the prices are 40% less than what I pay here at 
home, plus I had a coupon or two.
Extra bonus, Heidi Swapps new stamps were out ;)

Here is Wayne's Michael's purchases ;)
I needed a few more of these thin containers, as I used them for my flower storage. But this is the only one where the latches stayed shut.
Because it was already on sale, I needed to give Wayne something that wasn't on sale for him to use my other coupon ;)
I was looking for these Heidi Swapp butterflies.

I found a few goodies at Target as well.
I am so into the Valentines theme right now. I love this heart punch :)
I found this banner kit in the dollar bin.
Thought it might look cute on Ashley's mantel, if not…Kristy will have fun putting it together ;)
Yes, that is a T-shirt in this photo. I rather buy creative supplies, but I really do need a few more shirts.

While Wayne and I were in a Grand Marais, I wanted to check out Ben Franklin store.
Yes I found quite a bit of creative goodies in there as well….I can find crafting supplies in every store I go into, teehee.
I think this owl stamp is so cute. It is really big too, its bigger than the palm of my hand.
Heather loves owls…so I see a birthday card for her with this on it ;)
The flair badges are quite big as well. I love the maple leaf and chickadee :)

Well that is all from me tonight.
Getting into the Zombie zone and enjoying The Walking Dead :)

I hope you all had a creative Sunday :)
