Bargains ~ Budget ~ And A Win!

I don't  have anything "creative" to share with you today.......but.....I do have some of my bargains and my "paper" budget to share.......I put myself on a little paper crafting budget......I allow myself to spend $10 or so per week...and one larger item per month to purchase for my "addiction" far its thought I would show you some of my bargains......but before that I also wanted to share my free stamp sets I won from Flourishes...can you believe I won the entire April release...OMG....was I excited or what.....I can hardly wait to use these.

Up next are my "coupon", what you can get with a coupon.....from JoAnn Fabrics is my stamp set called Ancestral Collage.....reg $14.99...with 50% coupon...a mere $7.50....also purchased at the same time is my TH Distress Red Barn ink...reg $4.99 for a mere $3.

Last week from Hobbylobby with a 40% off coupon are my COPIC multiliners...a set of 4...reg $11.99 for $7.20....
My last 2 items weren't on sale...but I wanted them and they were "in my budget".....a few weeks ago I purchased on Ebay this wonderful vintage look LaBlanche stamp...I find myself wanting to collect all of them...they stamp like a dream!  And last is my Zentangle book purchased from Michael's for $8.99 friend Mary at primitiveseasons.....has been posting some beautiful creations she has done in Zentangle, I was so intrigued I had to try it myself...lets just say I need alot of practice!!   Will be back later with a few creations!
