Craft Store Finds

My mom and I went to Joann's today. I needed tule for my art doll and I
was hoping to get the STUFFED magazine too.

I was lucky and found the STUFFED magazine. I also got these great orange bowls. I LOVE the color orange. Not sure if they will stay in my studio or not yet. Also got this super cute chicken timer. Could not pass that up! Bought more pins but these have large knobs on the heads which are easier for me to pick up when my hands swell up. The best score of the day was the iron on ric rac felt! I got pink, aqua and lime green. They were in the clearance section and had between 8 and 10 years on them for, are you ready for it?, .97 cents a yard!!!! The regular price is $2.99 a yard! I grabbed the cute colors but may go back tomorrow to see if I missed any other good ones.

I was so proud of myself for not going nuts-o bunnies and sticking to my budget even with the ric rac. Have you scored anything awesome lately? I'd love to hear about it!

I'm a new follower to your blog. Saw that you left a comment at creative breathing and happened to wonder over your way. I love all of your gnomes... I've been thinking about those little guys lately. How I could do something different to create one. Love your blog.

Hi Sassy! Nice score (knuckle bump!). :) Isn't it nice to get the 'deal' like that? It has to help with the cost of the mags (they are so expensive!!). Can't wait to see what you use the rick-rack for. AND I love the orange bowls. xox! Pam

I went to Borders and got my magazines! Stuffed, Art Doll and Flea Market Style and I about fell over we they rang them up! Luckily I had my credit card!
Then I went to Goodwill and the Salvation Army and got a whole slew of cool things! Some for my Art projects, a few vintage things and a couple of 1/2 price "paint" shirts! LOL!

There's rarely not a time when I go into a craft or fabric store and don't score ...LOL! I went into Michael's the other day and they had some very beautiful glass beads for 40 percent off so I found some I could use, and I always head over to their bins with the 1.00 packs of cute note cards for my packages I send out.

Nothing is more fun than finding some new treasures at a great price!

Oh, WOW! You got some really great deals! I love Stuffed! I haven't started buying it yet because my husband is going to have a heart attack if I become addicted to one more Somerset publication! LOL!

I just got a big old shipment of brass and copper pendants and connectors and fabulousness. There is nothing better than the craft score high!
