Shopping frenzy!

*WARNING!* LONG POST!!

Okay okay, I went on a bit of a shopping frenzy! YIKES!! BUT....I did manage to snag MOST of this loot either on sale or it was used and I paid a lower price. So that is how I justify my spending anyways...LOL! Not sure hubby would agree but it is my allowance and I will do with it whatever I please so there! HA! Enough of being a snotty brat...LOL!

The picture below includes some used stamps I bought off of Claudia Rosa (various brands), some Stampology stamps from Wal-Mart, Clear Dollar stamps and a few misc. products from their store (1 of those stamp sets I won as candy...I could pick any set I wanted!), some Sugar Nellies stamps from Funky Kits and some Cuttlebug embossing folders from Memory Miser.


This picture is everything I bought from Susana at Susana's Custom Art and Card Design store! Great prices, free shipping (with qualifying purchase) and awesome customer service! Something was damaged in shipping and she even replaced it free of charge! PLUS in the original shipment she included that goodie bag you see towards the left (in a ziplock bag) for free! HOW SWEET! Very very nice lady and such a pleasure to do business with for anyone out there interested go check her shop out! I'm not going to list everything....if you want click on the picture to see a larger view and you should be able to see every item I purchased.



Okay, I didn't buy anything in the picture below...my sweet dear mom bought all these goodies for me!! I had her pick me up some paper pads on sale one day and she saw this holiday stack and thought I would like it. She also knows I have been wanting some crocheted flowers (as I do not think I have the patience to learn) and she found these on etsy and bought them for me....aren't they gorgeous! I LOVE THEM!
The sealife papers, charm and shell ribbon are for a scapbook I will be making for her EVENTUALLY...maybe I will have time during x-mas break?? LOL! Who am I kidding...I move as quick as a snail sometimes...it will probably take longer...sorry mom! It will get done one day...PROMISE! And the mini album is something I thought was absolutely cute so she got it for me! THANKS MOM...LOVE YOU! Yep, spoiled rotten I know :P



And here we have my final loot! I bought all this stuff from various places...local craft shop, online shops, wal-mart, Hobby Lobby, etc. Once again I am not going to type it all out...you can click on the image if you want a bigger view (sorry the image is rotated a little funny but I could not get it to post correctly!).



Well, is everyone exhausted now after reading all of that? I sure am! WHEW! The sad part is I have only been able to use like 2 new items in the past few weeks...ugh! The rest is just taking up floor space right now as I can't even figure out where to put it all! LOL!

*Candy Alert* Now I have NEVER done a candy before but I feel the urge to give something away as I have been so very very very lucky/blessed lately! This is for my regular followers ONLY! Now if you would like to join that is great and I will count you towards the candy but PLEASE DO NOT follow me just for the candy and then drop me like a dead tree as soon as the candy is over. I would be crushed if I saw my numbers go down. I really appreciate each and every single one of you (gals and guys *wink*) and I am so thankful that you follow me because you REALLY want to NOT because you have to...means the world to me!! Also, DO NOT advertise this candy! Like I said this is for people that really give a hoot about me and my blog....call this gratitude candy! I know your thinking get on with it already! LOL! This is nothing too grand for now but I promise there will be more giveaways in the future! If you would like to be in the drawing please leave me a comment under this post and you will be in the drawing for 20 random stamped images from my new stash! Gives me a reason to play also...LOL! :) I will post anywhere and you have until Thanksgiving night (Nov. 26th at midnight EST) to enter. I will pick a winner sometime Friday and announce HERE on my blog. I will also try to contact you for your mailing address!

Thanks so much everyone for being so great!
Big hugs!
