What a Haul!!!

So, I took a field trip into town the other day so I could hit all of the craft stores, and I have to tell you, good thing the hubby was out of town. If he saw me walk in the house with all of those bags, my ears would still be burning!

So you ask, DoBea, what did you all get?
-Fabric remnants, and lots of them. (You will see these pop up pretty soon.)
-A new border punch. (Saw it and just had to have it.)
-Tim Holtz embellies. (Fragments, masks, metal findings.And I don't think I paid full price for a one of them.)
-A small dress form. (Perfect for the jewelry I make. What? You didn't know I did that too?)
-A pack of cardstock. (All of my white was gone, so I was in a pinch.)
-Two more Tim Holtz Distress Inks. (I only need two more, and I have them all. Do you know how hard it is to find Aged mahogany and Pine Needles?)
-A bunch of the new MME patterned paper. (Oh, so YUMMY!)
-Echo Park's For the Record paper pack. (Where has this been all of my life?)
And last, but not least,
-A wooden birdhouse. (Why? Why not.)

So, what did I do with this birdhouse, huh?
TA DA!!!

  3. Hi DoBea!

    You can get the Tim Holtz inks at I have bought most of mine from there. I usually get them when they have them for 40% off. I am not sure if they have them on sale right now but they do have a free shipping code, well... if you spend more then $50. Which is easy to do. The code is CCABINAP75, just in case. :)

    Your bird house is darling! :)
