I went by Michael's yesterday and boy did I find a treasure! They were having a huge sale AND 30% off on all Martha Stewart scrapbooking things!!! I was beside myself. So off I went to get a buggy 'cause I KNEW there were new punches in my near future. I love her punches. They are so pretty and some are so elegant. I ended up getting 10 of them!! I even got some of her stickers, paper, and clear stamps. And, no, these weren't all Christmas items like you'd think. Some of my punches are pop-up ones, some border ones, some embossed ones, a couple of regular ones and even one that had 3 stamps with the punch of that stamp. It was a bird stamp/punch. Each stamp is a little different and when you punch it out you have three completely different ones. So cool!! I'd never seen these before. Now, I wanted more (I love punches - Ü) but restrained myself. I had so much fun...wish you had been there with me! Off I go to finish working out, getting lunch and playing with these for a while. See ya soon ...

To those who might be wondering...I'm still alive. We have been so very busy since Christmas, there's not been any "play" time for me. Right now I'm decorating an SU calendar I got several years ago. I've used it from the beginning but never decorated it. That's right...it's been naked (blush, blush). This is one of the reasons to get one of these kind...to decorate it. Okay, so I'm late. But it really is a cool calendar to have. It is not a true calendar as you know one, but a page per month with the dates down the side. All you do is place the name and event next to the number (date); it is reuseable every single year. I change the person's age or anniversary in January to reflect the present year's age. I hope to get back soon with some card making. Got a few birthday cards to do. Actually, February and March are huge months for birthdays in our family. So just because I haven't made anything lately doesn't mean that the buying has stopped!! Oh well...see you soon...and keep on inking that rubber!!
