My lovely findings (haul pictures)

Ok so I have been trying not to get anything till Christmas was over but this was such a deal I had to. I found this lady that I thought just had Cricut cartridges but she had way more.

Cricut Solutions was $25 each but she gave me the When Its Cold Outside for $10!!! Snow Friends is for my new bestie!

Cricut Cartridges was $20 each!

Now this was the steal each stamp set was .50 cents. Yes you read right $.50 cents. I bought all of them. I might be putting some in the Blog Hops I am coming up in.

All these brads were $.50 cents too. Yes I bought all sending some to my new bestie!

All this was also $.50 cents even the charms! I bought all of what she had. I still can't believe that I got all this & most important the stamps at $.50 cents!!!!

Well keep posted I will be adding my projects soon. I am making 200 candy sticks (Thanks to
Paper Crafts by Candace that gave me the idea!) I will also be in a few Blog Hops after Christmas,

Halloween Cards

These 2 cards are not as great as most of these ladies out there but I did make them. One day I will be as good as most of the ladies out there. First card is the spider card, spiders are from DoodleCharm & are popped out with 3d dots , eyes are orange brads

Second card is just a lil ghost w/ 2 lil bats. I used 3 colors for the ribbon ran it through the sticker maker (was easy that way to make it stay on card with ribbon). Nothing big about this card just made it for my sister.

Thank you for taking a look at my cards. If there is anything I can change please share your thoughts & advice on what I can change and/or do different.

Goodies I got

This is my first time blogging & my very first post so please bare with me. I will be adding my projects here soon. Having 4 kids takes up all my time so it's very hard to get my projects done & especially get on the computer without having at least one kid wanting something.

So I went to Michael's to get a diorama for my daughter & I stopped by the clearance section & found dcwv paper pads on clearance for $3.99. Yes I grabbed them figure I would use them for something especially at that price. Used my Martha Stewart 50% coupon on a stamp set & also got an extra 10% off for being military. I got the stamp set for $4.74. I walked next door to Ross & found more paper for $2.99 & 10 rolls of ribbon for $8.99. They had punches but have way too many of them but punches were $2.99.
