A Recollections kind of day

Today was an excellent day.
I got to see 2 of my good friends.
I went to Michael's.
And I bought my mini stand with my 40% off coupon...so take that Michael's...HA.

I have been trying to buy this stand for a couple of weeks now, but it has been on sale for 25% off.
If you know me, then you know I am thrifty...or cheap which ever, lol.
I had a 40% off coupon in my hand both times, and refused to only get 25% off.
Well today was my day. I used my coupon and received my 40% off :)
(the flowers are from Mother's Day :)

All Recollections stuff (besides the stand) was 40% off so I picked up these sweet mini tags :)

I also picked up (again Recollections) these journal tags for 40% off.

Onto My Day:
Kristy stayed home all day. She is feeling a little bit better tonight, so she is hoping to go to her Co-Op and school tomorrow.
Wayne was off all day as he had a doctor's appointment later in the afternoon. So decided to stay home.
My girlfriend Kelly came by for a visit. Love when my friends come and drop by :)
We went to Vanderwee's Greenhouse. They have so much stuff there, way more then just plants and out door stuff. But sadly they got rid of their crafts section years ago :(
Then we went to McDonald's as Kelly wanted to get my girls Smoothies, as Kristy wanted something cold for her throat.

Then after supper I called my girlfriend Debbie to meet me at Michael's.
It was so nice to get out with her again. We use to go out every Tuesday night. Just go to the mall, or go for a walk, just to spend time together. We haven't done that in awhile.
We then went to a few more stores, then went to Tim Horton's for coffee.   Well she had an iced latte and me a chocolate milk and we each had a donut ;)

I hope you all had a creative Tuesday :)
I may have not created a craft project, but there is nothing better then seeing your friends. I think that is pretty creative :)

Tracy :)


  1. Friends are great and seeing them is such a delight. Both of my best friends live hundreds of miles away from me, so when we get to see each other it is so nice. Glad you had a great time today, and the stand is very nice.

  2. God job on the savvy michaels shopping! I love a good deal!

  3. Tracy
    Congrats on outwaiting Michaels!! lol I am holding onto my 40% off too before I go for the punch I want.

  4. Good job beint patient and getting your item younwanted at 40% off. Glad Kristy is feeling some better today.

  5. I'm the same way, I won't buy anything at regular price and I wait for the best sales. I've been eye balling all the same stuff the last few times I've gone to Micheals, lol.

  6. your blog is one of the few happy places left on the net! Big hugs my friend

  7. Glad to hear you had a wonderful day! Love the stand.

  8. Great finds! I love bargain shopping. :)

  9. Oh my Tracy! That stand is really cute! Way to go holding out for the best price! Being Cheap is always good! The other stuff you found is really great too! I wish Micheals was closer than an hour for me...but that's probably a good thing. ;)

    Glad to hear that Kristy is feeling better. I'm sure she hates missing Co-op. And how nice that you got to spend some quality time with good friends.

  10. that stand looks so cute! i too am very cheap and only use coupons at michaels!! why pay full price??

  11. Okay Tracy, what's the stand for? I clicked on it and it says for scrapbook pages but we both know you haven't made a page in over a year. LOL! But then again, I haven't made one in over six months, so I might need to buy one of these stands too! Hahahaha! I love the idea of this though, just wish I had some pages to display in it ;) Those tickets and journaling tags are SO cute! I'm heading to Michaels today, right after Abie's talent show... Glad you got to spend time with your friends!

  12. Have fun with your goodies. I think of you every time I'm in Michaels and see these scrapbook stands. :) I would like to get one too but this new place is so small there's no place to put it! I'll have to pass for now. So glad you finally got one!

  13. Thanks for sending in cards! Great finds. I am usually disappointed by Michaels but this past week found some good stuff.

  14. Great shopping trip. My Michael's doesn't have that...actually they don't have much. The store shelves are very understocked and the whole store is such a mess. I hate shopping there. Very different than the ones where I have lived before.

  15. I love that stand....my step daughter is getting married in a couple months, that would be a perfect piece to add with pictures scrapped of them!! I might have to hit Michaels up fast!

  16. I love your goodies! Sounds like a fun friend-filled day!

  17. Good for you being able to get it with your coupon!!! I am the same way :)

  18. I haven't been to M's in quite a while, may need to stop by there, that stand looks great!

  19. I don't know how I missed this post. Oh that's right I'm working on a very minimal amount of brain cells lately. All I try to understand is how am I going to get all this stuff into those little tiny boxes 8\ I haven't decided if I'm going to get the stands or not yet. It's one of the wait and see where I can put it kind of things. Actually everything is kind of like that right now. It's a great way to save money! LOL. Great way to spend your day with a friend!

  20. You got the best deals as wanted and your patience paid off to you.Great shoppping i love shopping at michaels and also save money like you by using michaels framing coupons on crafty products :)

  21. I hope Kristy is feeling better! I love shopping at Michaels, but always with my coupons! I will make multiple trips or drag AJ with me so I can use more than one coupon!


Leave me some love and I will return it right back to you :)
