I know there is a lot of inspiration to be found for free on the internet, but there is something so tactically and visually satisfying about thumbing through a magazine. :-) So, this is one of my splurges. Of course, I always wait for the best renewal deals (often to be had at the convention) and I paid for membership on Club CK which at the time came with the 4 annual special issues (over 50% off cover price). Not sure if that deal is still going on. I sure hope it is...I'm really not willing to pay $14.99 retail no matter how great a magazine is. Skrimp and...skrimp some more!

I will not put all of my crafting fun on hold, though. This weekend, the Creating Keepsakes Convention comes to Mesa, Arizona, and I'm volunteering. I have been volunteering in CKC classrooms for several years now. It is a ton of fun, I learn a lot and I get a free pass to the Vendor Fair, plus a couple other goodies in payment. It's so worth it. I'm sure I'll be picking up a few new items for my stash, too. Can't wait to blog about them...have to make the time for that! Thanks for stopping by!

I like to pop into Tuesday Morning frequently - you never know what you are going to find there. Fortunately for me, I have one about a mile from my house. Often, I walk out without buying anything but sometimes I make out like a bandit. Recently found these two packages at 99 cents each.
Each package had 10 sheets of paper/cardstock, most double-sided along with some trims and a small stamp set.
20 sheets, 3 packages of trims and a stamp set for $2? What a bargain!

So, I scoped out another Craigslist scrapbooking yard sale intending to buy a We R Memory Makers Sew Easy kit - it was advertised at 50% off retail. Well, their "retail" was not the same as my "retail." I found that I could pick up a brand new kit with a 40% off coupon for about the price they were asking so I passed. It wasn't a wasted trip, though, cause they had a number of items that were great deals.
Baggies of paper flowers at $1 each. I grabbed all seven.
Pearls and rhinestones at 50 cents a package.
Sticker and rub-ons at 50 cents a piece.
Found any great deals yourself lately?
