Early August Update

I've actually been able to make a few scrapbook pages in August.  July got so busy and I got almost nothing done, other than working 120 hours in 2 weeks!

It's calmed down a little bit now at work.  I did put my name in for a promotion yesterday, and I'm super nervous.  I'm pretty sure I won't get it, but at least I tried.

Also, today I filmed and am currently uploading my first YouTube video.  Look me up!  (I'm Shawnlyn72 on YouTube)

Earned the blog name today!

My typical craft purchase is $10 or under – on a big day $20.

The other day, I went into M’s when I was totally broke, and of course found a bunch of cute stuff.  So, I promised myself that when payday came (which is the payday for the TON of overtime I worked the last couple weeks) I would splurge and get some of the cute things.  So, here is my crafty bounty!

First, I went CRAZY in the dollar section (1stphoto)

Then, I found some cute  and useful clearance (2nd photo).

The things not pictured are:

-          Maggie Homes/Crate paper pad (I used a 40% off J’s coupon)

-          2 acrylic pencil boxes for the kiddies (for school – they can decorate)

-          Sn@p letters – because I have wanted them ever since I saw them

-          Some yellow patterned paper because I have very little in my stash that is yellow, and I’m trying to use more of that color

-          A package of recollection back to school papers in 4 1/2x 6 ½ size to use for the calendars I make, and some Bazzill cardstock that coordinates

And that’s it!!!!  I spent $62!!!!  I got great deals, but I NEVER spend that much!  I truly went wild (also the name of my blog)….which felt GREAT, actually since I woke up with really horrible cramps and a horrific migraine!
