The stash

This isn't even all of it, it just didn't fit in one photo.  I got two paper packs too.  One is Flames with checker flag on the back and the other is a floral design with burgundy stripes on the back.
It is really difficult to show just how much stuff I came home with from the FISKARS warehouse sale....but I tried.  Everything was a buck.  $1.  100 cents.

Now, some of this stuff I am thinking to myself, "what am I going to do with 6 of everything I buy"....but then, the retail cost on most of that is WELL over a dollar. I tried to shop with that in mind.  Afterall, alphabets never have enough letters (so I bought two I have  I did get things I thought I would most use, like brads (in cute little tins mind you!..I got three different colors...6 of each...what was I thinking??) and the fabric flowers (should have gotten more of those....grrr) and the alphas (should have bought more of the "flame" letters now that I think about it....because 6 packages just won't be enough!) Now the cute brads with designs on top are also giving me fits about the fact that I should have picked up a few more....gotta get over that feeling...I KNOW I have plenty!!

So that is my haul...just thought I would show you.  It fills two grocery bags and cost me $36.  Not bad huh?

Ok, it's been a WHILE since I updated here...bad blogger me!
Above photo is a quick snapshot of the line waiting to get into the FISKARS Warehouse sale we went to on Thursday in Wausau, WI.  Lots of fabulous deals on paper, embellies and stickers. Not much for punches and tools.
Quin is running in his very first Mile run in Middle school Track.  He finished 6th...whoohoo!  A great first run.  He is also doing the 800 and a relay.  He is enjoying it.
And here is Nick at his 6th met of the year.  He is doing well and keeping in the top 4 during most races.  As long as he improves his time every race he will be doing fine.

OK, so you see what I have been up to and why I have been too busy to update.  I can't keep up with all these things!!  Blogger, FaceBook and more!  When do I have time to actually create?  Once in a while, check my crafy blog for that.  SEe, I have three blogs to keep track of, two kids and a job......calgon, take me away..I wouldn't have it any other way.
