Wednesday . . .

I'm sorry to say that I don't have anything creative to show you today, but I will give you an update on my QVC viewing / purchasing. Are you ready? I didn't buy anything! I was tempted by a couple of items, but in the end, I purchased nothing! I was proud of myself for realizing that I didn't need anything!

However, the day wasn't "purchase free". I did pick up two of the Becky Higgins School Expansion kits off of Lisa Bearnson's site. They are now 30% off! The shipping is so high from Utah to Illinois, so it was nice to get the 30% off! I originally wanted to puchase these kits when they were the Kit Of The Month on Lisa's site, but I refrained. Yeah for me for waiting and getting a discount!

Tim Holtz was on QVC yesterday for the first time ever, and he was just fantastic! I wish he would have had more products. I love to watch him create. A lot of his stuff is way too "chunky" for my personal tastes, but his creation process is fun to watch!

So, that's it from me for today. I hope to having something fun to show you tomorrow. Thanks for stopping by!

I totally missed Tim Holtz on QVC - I enjoy watching his tutorials. It's probably best I missed it because I would have bought something not that I need it! I am going to go look at the site and see what specials they had:) Very proud of you!

If you can watch QVC and NOT purchase anything, you are doing great!!! lol I have to refrain myself from watching QVC and HSN...the temptation is too great:)
I can't wait to see what you make with your new kit Carol! Have a great day and TFS!

Luckily for me I was at work so I avoided the temptation of buying.

Good job on refraining...QVC can be dangerous to a budget, LOL

I so agree about Tim Holtz, he is fantastic

I have found QVC to be a very dangerous show! I'm glad I didn't know about it! Congrats on being so good!
