Stash shopping



Managed a quick crafty shop in Michaels yesterday :-) The boys dropped MIL & I off & went off to play with expensive cars so we had a couple of hours to mooch round & a few bits fell into the trolley :-) Later a few more bits joined them from Walmart as we ended up in the Arts & Crafts section whilst the boys did the grocery shop :-)

Sarah said...

Oh wow!! Do I spy some MS punches? ;o) I'm so envious!!!! xx

Rachel said...

Yes Susan got a few bargains :-)

As you weren't available Val I just had to go without you! LOL

Yes Sarah & they cut beautifully - I had to test them :-) I also got a MS circle cutter but haven't had the chance to try that yet - have been out for lunch with friends & had a dinner party here for other friends - long day .................

Jane said...

I've enjoyed looking at your stash Rachel. Mine's all packed away for the foreseeable futue so I have to get my kicks by looking at other people's!!
Please think of any future purchases as 'therapy' for me as well......especially if it helps justify buying more!

Ellen said...

I'm seeing green .. cannot you fill your suitcase with pine punches and sell them here?

at this rate you'll need to buy another suitcase Rachel, enjoy it all.

Sarah said...

Ooohh sounds like your having a wonderful time!
Ellen, what a great idea - I'd pay double for one ;o)

Kath said...

Just wondering if there are any ribbons left in the States!!!

It all looks fab. Enjoy your holiday and your goodies.

Agree with Ellen. you could sell your branch punches here if you could carry them.

Rachel said...

Ok girls who wants a branch punch? Get your orders in & I'll try to accommodate when I next go to the craft shop.

Glad to help Jane :-) I have a couple more craft shops to fit in if I can persuade my BIL to take me :-)

Sarah said...

Oh Rachel! YOU are a STAR!!!! xxxxx I would love one please if it isn't too much trouble for you? I can send you the money via PayPal or whatever you would like? Just let me know and I'll email ya' Big hugs xxx

Rachel said...

Just put your order in atm & I'll sort out the money & P&P when I'm back in the UK. Will probably work out at about £10/12 including postage to give people an idea.

I just need to know how many to bring back - subject to weight restrictions & suitcase space of course!

have pm'd you mrs !

Net said...

Oh Rach!! Me me me me for a branch punch please. There were none to had while I was there. ;))

Have you a trip to Jo-Anns planned too?

Rachel said...

Fingers crossed Net I'll make it to Jo-Ann's & AC Moores but have to rely on my BIL as taxi service :-) - Your branch interest noted :-)

Calv said...

You lucky thing Rach! :)

Glad you had a productive trip. :)

Happy New Year to you and John.

Rachel said...

Jo-Ann's great! as usual :-)

AC Moores VERY disappointing :-( Expensive & no sale items!! Didn't get any of our dollars!

Managed to get people sorted for branch punches on our travels:-) Had to buy another suitcase! (Jon needed one anyway really ........ :-) )

Got a bit lost driving round - but managed to find our way home in the end between us :-)

Sarah said...

Woo Hoo!! Thank you Rachel, you're an angel! Sounds like you are having a ball over there xxx

Rachel said...

About to leave to come home - we don't arrive until Sunday mid morning!

Sari said...

You did so grand in your finds. I really do not understand how or why AC Moore's could didn't have sales items especially in this economy. After the hols, I really thought they would offer some bargain pricing. THEIR loss! And the new suitcase was even a great find. You guys will use that for everything now! Did everyone get their stamps they wanted by now? The branch stamp looks incredible. x0x SJ

PS: MORE SNOW HERE - you could go and body stamp several snow angels. LOL

Rachel said...

Didn't manage to bring enough branch punches Sari :-( - need half a dozen more at least to make people happy campers! But MIL is happy - she got hers :-)
