Despite the fact that I still feel a bit like a Grinch, I must admit that after a hour (No Hubby John it was NOT five hours!) of poking around Michael's in search of Christmas rub-on transfers at 70% off regular price, I am happier than I was a few days ago. Not only did I get some sparkly ones, I was able to score some that were very old fashioned looking. These are hard to come by and are usually sold out before Christmas even arrives. So yes, I am feeling very pleased with myself today. I also got some ribbon that is very festive looking at 80% off regular price along with a few wooden pieces that are just waiting for me to paint up.....one of these years. I found some plain white embossed Christmas cards that I want to try doing a colour wash on and then I will add some sparkles to them. I can see the end result in my head but putting it on paper (pun intended) may prove to be a problem. We'll see. I will let you know what happens when it does.
The embossing on the cards is very pretty and I think I will run down this week and pick up two or three more packets. Again, these were 70% off so now is the time to buy. So I am smiling like a Cheshire cat at the moment. I LIKE getting craft stuff but I LOVE getting it on sale even better. So today I am a happy girl.
