Here is it, the wreckage, from a day of crazy shopping at the Novi stamp show. I did my best to boost the economy with my own "stimulus" package. Sure I had a budget, (snicker-snicker), but like our government, I totally ran over it ( I wonder if I can get a loan from China?). I think my mind knows that I keep a reserve, for those pesky things like,... oh food and gas. (I guess nobody is eating at our house this week).
To Cliff at" Stamping Sensations", Jane, Kelly at "Our Daily Bread", and all the other vendors, Stampsmith, Stamp-la-Jolla, Stamp Camp, Lost Coast, Too Much Fun (got a great stamp there it says: "I laughed so hard, tears were running down my legs"), Stamping Fools (where I got the cutest Mermaid stamp), Thank You, we all had a ball. My sisters Kim and Cheryl, my good friend Terri, and I left with lots of goodies to play with.
Found these neat paper and sequin type flowers that you can put together to make pretty flowers for my work. I also found some neat packs of shiny-paper at the Paper-cuts booth. I made a card with some of the neat pre-cut cards they had.
I have a Love/Hate thing for Invoke Arts. I LOVE their stamps, I Hate that I can never get out of their booth without spending most of my budget there. In this years case almost all! Of course this booth and Ms. Paula Bests' booth vie for for my dollars. This year Invoke won, hands down.
Yeah and I also got these.....
