Paper Pad Addict

Don't Forget: Sign In To Be Counted For The Top Follower Prize

Hello Artist and Crafters! Today after being told that I have bronchotis I went to pick up my prescription and while out decided to grab me a pack of watercolor paper. Well to make a long story short, Michael's had approximately 15 MME 6x6 paper packs! I couldn't believe this...Michaels had MME.  Of course I couldn't pass it up so I picked up a few packs and can't wait to create something.  After the excitement of finding all these paper pads it wasn't until I was almost home when I discovered that I didn't get the watercolor pad I had intended to get in the first place.

No problem I'll just run in Hobby Lobby and grab a pack..shouldn't take over 30 minutes max.  Well the plan back-fired when low and behold HL had new paper packs as well, both 12x12 and 6x6.  I had to get the Printery by Prima, I mean its only been a month of looking for it online and an extra pack by Teresa Collins couldn't hurt. If only I had stopped looking...well...HL had the new Bo Bunny in 12x12 packs so I knew I'd be back if I didn't go ahead and get them so guess what I did.

So now I am on my way home, without the water color pad I might add so Joanne's here I come.  I didn't even try to pretend..I went straight to the Art Dept and picked up my watercolor pad and a couple of other items and headed straight for the paper.  Nothing new, and this actually pleased me, so now I am standing in line ready for checkout and they announce ribbon and lace being 50% off.  I'm ready to cry because I am having withdrawal symptons and my wallet is a lot thinner now.  I stay in line and keep repeating I do not need anything else, until I finally hit the register.  I asked the lady to hurry so I wouldn't spend any more and proceeded to chat with her about my day. (the store was rather empty).  Next thing I know she is using a 25% coupon, a 40% coupon and then another 40% coupon until my bill was less than $18.  She told me if I wanted I could come back tomorrow and get the ribbon and not to forget the coupon she had placed in my bag. What a blessing.

So I finally get home, make a sandwich and sat down to think about my day.  I am really tired and worn out, not to mention I now have a headache and my chest is on fire.  It occurs to me at that very moment that I never did go and pick up my prescriptions....GOD HELP ME!  So here is a card for you to view until I get back from the pharmacy and this time I am taking no money with me and my grand-daughter to keep me on track.  My doctor was right I really do need to rest.

Oh my goodness please get some rest and drink plenty of Vitamin C & water. Bronchitis is nothing to play with, but I'm glad you have something to play with. All that for $18 is a blessing. Take care!!!

Stunning card Lesia - I loved your story, but do, do, do, look after yourself - bronchitis is no fun - I speak from experience. Take your time and craft to your hearts content while you recover.

I just had to come back to say that until I read your post on SOC, I didn't know what MME meant. Pardon my ignorance :)
