WOYWW 281--Crafty Coupon Queen

Well, I told myself to cut down a bit on the trips to Michaels, JoAnns, and Hobby Lobby--my craft store haunts. But then hubby insisted I must go enjoy myself and use a fabulous coupon that arrived in the mail--one of those 20% off everything INCLUDING sale items. How could I resist that? So, to keep about my frugal ways I stuck to only buying sale items. I got 60% off a couple of Recollections tools--the mini trimmer cost a little over a dollar after sale and coupon. So cute. And a fab new craft knife for three-something! Got a great storage container for scrapbook papers for 70% off. But my favorite thing was getting an Ott Lamp that was normally 60 bucks for around 23 dollars. Happy happy! I needed a lamp like that for the crafty table  - woo hoo!
Now go visit Miss Julia over at What's-On-Your-Workdesk-Wednesday and see what the crafty tribe is up to. I've got diecutting to do! Happy Wednesday!
My new natural lighting at the crafty table.
 And one more thing--happy mail with a sweet card! Had to share my precious blog candy from Nikki C in Canada! Going to play with these goodies today!

Eat, Write, Dream, Stitch Happy

  4. Lucky you to get those great bargains! It's great to work by a daylight lamp, not just for the natural color but I used to suffer from SAD syndrome (depression caused by lack of light in the winter). I've had to use a lightbox to keep functioning and always worked by a daylight lamp.
    Thank you for letting me have a peep of your workspace.
    Have a good week

  5. How fab is your husband for encouraging you to go shopping? You sure got some bargains there! The Ottlight was amazingly cheap. I really couldn't craft without my daylight lamp, saves the ageing eyes quite a bit! You'll wonder how you managed before :-)
    And look at that gorgeous happy mail too....what a lively parcel that must have been to receive. Bet you'll enjoy playing with that lovely lot!
    I'm away this weekend, taking Rhys to a University Open day..he wants to study Ancient & Medieval History. Chip off the old block ;-)
    Hugs, LLJ 21 xx

    1. What a cool guy - ancient and medieval history? I love that! I just recorded a two hour show from the history channel on the Plague. Fascinating! Have fun!

  6. Great shopping spree there. Looks like you got some real bargains. Have a great week and happy crafting, Angela x 41
