A little retail therapy!

Hi everyone.  How is your week going so far?  My girls have two weeks left in school and then they are off for the summer hols.

In the meantime, I really felt down yesterday, so what better way to try and rectify that, with some retail therapy.  So, I will show you my little stack of bargains.

Here in Michaels Canada, things are so over priced that I always make sure I have vouchers with me, otherwise I don't buy anything.

Here is what I got.  Two 7 Gypsies small shadow boxes , they are about 6" by 6" and I got them for $2.99 each!

Next up was a small pack of 6 x 6 7 Gypsies papers and embellisments.  Look what was in the pack. All for $3.99.

Next up, Studio G are adding more stuff to they $1.50 collection.  I picked up these cute metal embellishments and also some foam dots, all for $1.50 each.

Now, there is also a Home Sense right next door and they occasionally have some good craft stuff.  I picked up a stack of Bassil 6x6 cardstock, containing 96 pieces, for $5.99.  And also a small pack of 12 envelopes and cards (nice quality and weight) for $3.99.  The ATG tape was from Michaels, and of course I used my 50% off voucher.  I had two other vouchers with me, so paid them forward!  Brought a smile to a couple of peoples faces :-)

Aren't they fabulous colours.

And there you have it, a little bit of shared retail therapy.

Happy Friday and enjoy your weekend.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Happy crafting.
