In English… a husband with ZERO interest in crafting haha
..is that he NEVER, ever looks at my blog and I don’t HAVE to confess to my shopping splurges… I do anyway, we have that kind of relationship ….and I am disgustingly honest *rolleyes.
This week I’ve been having a bit of a splurge… mostly online. I added a few new affiliates, which I only add if I am interested in trying, or have already tried. These links are affiliate or sponsor links… for those of you who like to know before clicking. The Affiliate links pay commission on sales generated, NOT per click..so you can safely click if you are interested in the products…without feeling you are being led into clicking to generate money…. and the sponsor links are just recognition of our sponsors who provide prizes for some of our Monthly card challenges.
I grabbed some new folder and a die that was on sale from one of the new affiliates, Elizabeth Craft Designs …. and some really cool looking paper. I thought I would try the sampler packs first.
I got some iridescent shimmer sheetz and some velvet paper, can’t wait to try these out in some projects.
The die I picked up is really cool..it’s Merry Christmas in Spanish… I got that one for my step-daughter and her husband’s card. Her husband is Spanish and I know he will appreciate the gesture 🙂
I also hopped over to this new affiliate, Loralie Designs and even though I don’t sew…. not even remotely LOL… I actually bought some of her fabric. I want it for an experimental project and this is perfect for what I need. There are some really cool fabric designs.. I know if this works out for the project I have in mind, I’ll be back for some more. It was very hard picking a design to test this out with… but I was trying to be good LOL.
I won’t show you what I bought… just yet….. that will be revealed in a later project post if it works. If it doesn’t I’ll send the rest of the fabric to grandma.. who makes the most awesome quilts 🙂
..oh we’re not done yet
I am also hooking myself up with some Chameleon pens .. now all the girls on the message board know, I am much more into digital coloring and do not own anything fancier than a crayola washable marker that I borrow off my kid for wet brush projects lol. But when I saw these….I was impressed and intrigued enough to want to give these a shot. Yup…. that will be in another tutorial/ project/product review post later.
..which leads me nicely into my other purchases.. digi stamps.. yeah MsWipz been a bad, bad girl again lol.
Anyone who is on the message board will tell you I am a KennyK stalker.. lol I love my KennyK stamps and I am probably on their site more than they are looking for new ones to get.
And we have another sponsor, Bugaboo stamps that I have bought a few here and there from…. well I did have a few … till this morning haha… I picked up 18 new stamps from Bugaboo.
So I have a tonne of digital and Chameleon coloring to get done too .. expect to see those in upcoming card making challenges, projects and tutorials 🙂
I have a couple more new products to play with and share… but those will save for another post :)..and we didn’t even get to my Michaels and Joann haul from Mondays shopping spree. I picked up some cool new stuff to use with the lil guy..unlike his daddy.. the lil man loves crafting….and will tell you so LOL
Ok.. now I am off to play with my son.. who scored a bigger haul on Monday that I did. He got his first halloween outfit that he chose himself, with the help of Batman’s sidekick Robin..who apparently moonlights at Party City. We will be Bumblebee the transformer..and yes I did have to walk around the rest of the strip mall with him like this..including Joann’s .. it was fun ! The joys of being 3 and a half and not caring about what people think LOL Everyone was awwing over him specially when they realized that “little girl” in a transformer costume… is a little boy with long hair in a ponytail.
…his first real board game ..which he clearly announced… “I CHEAT”.. lol..and he did. Gotta love the honesty of toddlers haha.
He also got his first proper percussion set..which I am sure the neighbors will learn to love .. and a new funko pop vinyl bobble head figure.. we got Deadpool this time. And mommy managed to squirrel away a couple of sets of the new super hero smasher twin packs… if he forgets about them, I will add them to his Christmas stash.
Once he is in bed Mommy will get cracking on some crafting challenge pieces and get caught up with all the fun stuff like laundry and dishes.
