A Paper Tree

Well, I didn't get any of my Christmas cards made this weekend but I did make the Paper Tree that I need for a swap tonight!


Tonight is the monthly "Inky Angels" SU! Demo Group meeting that I am a member of and instead of our normal card swap we are doing a Gift Swap. All of us had to make 1 item that would be worth at least $10.00 at a craft fair so I decided to try one of there Paper Trees from the tutorial at SCS.


For my tree I used Stampin' Up!'s Wintergreen Designer Paper and my ribbon from the recent ribbon share that I was in on Jody Morrow's blog confessionsofaribbonaddict.blogspot.com I was so glad that this ribbon came just in time and the colors I got match perfectly with the SU! Designer Paper!!

I hope that whoever gets this tonight likes it:)

I Love Black Friday!!!!!!

I think this may have been one of my most successful Black Friday's ever:)

I shopped for 16 hours in the past 2 days and I just loved it. I got up at 3:30 am on Friday and got home at 1:30 pm, then went back out at about 2:30 for a few more hours. I hit Walmart first, then waited in line at Target at 5:30 am, then went to Starbucks to refuel, went to Kohl's, then Chic-fil-a to refuel again and then to the Mall to New York and Company, Victorias Secret (had to get the free Super Model bag!!), Macy's, Sears, JcPenney and every other little store in the Mall! On the way home I made a detour to Michael's just to make sure I wasnt missing anything. Then I went home for the day, I thought, but I got the wrong Barbie Princess Throne for my neice so I had to go back to Target so my sister in law and I went back and what do you know, we found more great deals that we needed!
I was very successful and got everything that was on my list and MORE!

I hope everyone else was as successful as I was on Friday!

Today I totally didnt mean to go shopping at all but I accidentally did......
I had a meeting to go to and one of my friends there asked if I wanted to run (real quick) to AC Moore since there were coupons...so I did, of course, but I didnt find anything I needed there. I wanted a Xyron but they didnt have the one I wanted so I took the coupon to Michaels and got it there. Here's the one I got:
My friend that was with me said this is the one I need since it can laminate, too:) So for 40% off I got one.

Then when I got home today I saw that my ribbon came from Jody's ribbon share. Lookie:
Now I have to make a fabulous something or another for a gift swap at my Inky Angels meeting Monday night, come up with something for a Shoebox Swap next Saturday and make all 75 of our Christmas cards to send out....WISH ME LUCK!

I Shopped and I Stamped

The name of my blog is "stamping and shopping" afterall, guess I should actually share when I do those things!

Well, I sorta shopped, I placed a nice big SU! order. I got 8 packs of designer paper (Uptown, Le Jardin, Outlaw, Tempting Turquoise Print, Groovy Guava Print and 3 that didn't come yet cause they are on backorder...Dashing, Linen Prints and Cutie Pie, but they're on their way!. I got a few packs of cardstock for my friend Sherry (who I am also splitting some of the DP with), the new Purely Pomegranate Satin Ribbon from the Holiday Mini, (which will be on sale buy one get one free starting Friday along with some other great deals!!!), a few other rolls of ribbon, the Snow Blossom Punch and the cutest Christmas stamp set, Punch Pals, all for me!!!!!!!!!!!
I know now that you read about the Buy One Get One Free deal on the ribbon you want to know all about the other specials so i'll tell you, but only cause you're my favorite....
It is going to be called "Wrapping Up The Holidays" and some of the specials will be:
  • Tags for All Stamp Set* (item 110380) 20% off!

  • Designer Gift Cards* (item 110264) 30% off!

  • Purely Pomegranate (item109863) and Chocolate Chip (item 109862) Satin Ribbon* Buy 1, get 1 free!

  • and some others that i'll keep under wraps until Friday

Ok,now to the stamping that I did. My boss asked me yesterday at about 4:30pm if I could make about 10 small cards for him to give to some of their neighbors along with some peanuts for Thanksgiving....Since I knew it meant i'd make some $$ I said "Yes" of course and made 10 of these little 3x3 cards for him (and he paid me $40!):

That's all for today! I hope that everyone has a wonderful, safe, Happy Thanksgiving tomorrow!

May all that you eat taste good on your lips and stay away from your hips!!!
