Yup. I was just looking for an excuse to buy something, and figured VD was the way to go!

As I shopped for V-day treats for my family yesterday (who don't buy ME anything in return), I was thinking just that. Totally justified the purchase I just made

Basic Grey "True Love" theme set, chipboard, garland and bottle caps (30% off with my discount plus a sale)
Dear Lizzy "5th and Frolic" theme set, phrase garland, and roller date stamp
MME enamel dots 2 sets
set of 3 AC Slick Writers

Just ordered yesterday but will be here in time for my retreat this weekend

Happy Valentines Day to meeeeeee!!

Not here, but great idea and good excuse!

Rosey, you might want to take a look at the kindle fire. DH bought one about a month ago, its great, basically the same thing, and half the price...more money for scrapping lol

I guess I already did...

I went shopping for some scrapbook goodies to make my valentine cards, I came home with some new dies, embossing folder and some pretty paper, I'm not sure if these really count as a gift for me if I used them to make cards for others...right??

Of course! Dh asks me what I would like: jewelry or something else. This year I choose a Silhouette Portrait.

It just showed up, so I'm cutting a journaling card right now.

Can't decide!

I am trying to stay frozen. But I'm very close to out of adhesive, which mandates a trip to Beverley's soon. (Local version of Joannes). And since I'd be there anyway...

Then again, I'd really like hold for Mother's Day and Cameo!!

Probably not. I don't really "need" much and I'm waiting for some of the new products I have my eyes on to make their way to Two Peas before I place my next order.

My goodies arrived today! The Dear Lizzy roller date stamp is my favorite. Also lovin' her 5th and Frolic papers and banners.

My first MME enamel dots! The colors are more vibrant than in pics and I love them!

And the Basic Grey "True Love" things are soooo pretty ...

Going to a retreat this weekend and will have fun playing with all of them

I just did . I got the Snap collection pack along with the Snap label pack, plus three packs of enamel dots! I also found a Teresa Collins mini book kit on clearance for about $3 that looks fun. Yay for using an Archivers coupon as I'm visiting a state that has Archivers.

I have done a good bit of scrappy shopping the last couple days and that was going to be my gift to myself. Now DH is saying that he is going to pay for the 3 day crop that I have been wanting to attend for my valentines or get me the scrap'n easel which ever I want.

Not because of Valentine's Day but if the two lines I want happen to show up here tomorrow I will add them to my cart and order in a heartbeat. I just know though that it is likely they will come and go before I am even aware they are here. Now if they would show up and they restocked the Glitz roller stamps I wanted on the same day and I could order them all at once I would really be loving 2Peas.

So far this year I am just not getting into the holiday - maybe because DH has been sick for the last week and is just now getting better - hoping I don't get it. I told him the only thing I want is for everyone to be well and to get a few things done and spend some time together. I am easy this year.

I treated myself to some matching dies for random PTI stamp sets that I purchased through Trademe.

Having the matching dies makes it so much nicer.

Yep, my amazing husband spent less on regular Valentines stuff so I could have more for my craft budget. lol Gotta love him. He actually handed me my roses in a clear plastic sleeve, he said with the vase it was quite a bit more and he thought I would rather have that for scrap stuff. He's right, my Mikasa vase at home is better than what they would put it in anyways.

Proud Mommy to my baby boy Riley!
