Goodies!

My father-in-law gave me an Archiver's gift card for my birthday. This was from both him and my mother-in-law. Obviously, I was thrilled. I got it from him a couple of weekends ago, and I'm happy to say that I showed great restraint, and I did NOT run out to spend it the next day! Quite amazing for me, if I do say so myself. So, yesterday, a trip to WalMart had to be made, and what's near Walmart? Yes, you're right, Archiver's! So, I decided to spend some of it. I'm happy to say that I still have a $5 balance on the card! See, restraint!


So, this is what I got! I got some fantastic Love, Elsie Noel goodies for HALF OFF! See those yellow stickers? They say 50% off. We like those stickers! Most of the Noel paper was gone, so I got 4 sheets of the same patterned. It's great though, because it's very Christmasy on one side, and snow patterned on the other. I also got that little Making Memories Noteworthy journaling spiral bound book. I've really wanted it, so I did pay full price for that. I also got one sheet of Noteworthy paper. Then I got three very cute epoxy Halloween stickers. I also bought adorable pet stamps. Both of these items were 75% off! See those aqua stickers? They say 75% off, and we LOVE those stickers! Then, I had two coupons for FREE Hot Spot items (Hot Spot items are all $1.99), and I got adorable Scrappy Cat acrylic stamps! So, I am thrilled, thrilled, thrilled with my purchases! I have Christmas layouts to do, and I'm very excited that I will be able to use the Love, Elsie Noel! I really love the entire Noteworthy line by Making Memories, so I will TRY to use these items and not hoard them! I believe you can click on the photo to see an enlarged view. FUN stuff!

It was a BEAUTIFUL day yesterday! The weather was perfect! It was upper 60's, maybe low 70's, and it was sunny and NOT windy. I had the windows open, and when the girls got home we sat out back on the patio . . . it was lovely! I am so excited, because I am scrappin' tomorrow in the Diva Den with my Diva girlfriends! Yeah! We always have so much fun, and it's been way too long since we got together! I need to organize today and decide what I'm taking with me! I hope you all have a wonderful Friday and a great weekend! Thanks for stopping by!

As they say, "Whata loot".... Such a nice array of fun fun things to use in our daily addictions. We don't have an Archiver's here in Phoenix. Hmm, I wonder why? But we have ample Michaels, and Joanns, and a myriad of places to spend spend spend.
Great stuff, Carol. I know you will have such fun with it.

I am an Archiver's addict! I have learned that they mark clearance items down on Tues at the store here! I get some great stuff for 75% off, of course I really didn't need the stuff, but when they practically give it away, I just have to get it!

Lesli said...

Carol you are right - 7PM tomorrow night :) I had a brain lapse :)

Great restraint, Carol! I don't think I could have done it!
What great goodies you came home with. I wish we had an Archivers around here but I think my hubby is glad that we don't. Hee hee!
So glad that you are having some nice weather for a change!
