I did pretty good with all the Black Friday sales last week. I started hitting the Amazon Lightning Deals the beginning of the week and got a few television shows, movies and Wii games for my family along with a few other things. My biggest deal was my new laptop from Best Buy. So glad I was able to order that on Thursday afternoon instead of having to try and fight the crowds that had started camping out there on Tues. afternoon already. The bad thing though is that since I had to have my parents and in laws chip in part of it to get it as my birthday and Christmas presents my husband won't let me open it until then. (There are certain times when it actually pays to have a Christmas Eve birthday. Don't tell anyone I said that though because I will never hear the end of it. ;) Most of the time though it stinks. :P ) It came yesterday and it was so hard not to open it and start getting it ready to use. When Paul ordered a compound miter saw from Sears on Thursday night I told him "Merry Christmas" and now he can't open it until Christmas either. lol. He decided it would be a good idea to get one to do the trim work and stuff when we start re-doing our house or actually putting trim up in the rooms that we have already redone. It's only been about 13 years for a couple of rooms to go without the trim work. Why is it so hard to do that last little step? Another great deal I got was new laminate flooring for my kitchen!!! I'm so excited about that it. When we first moved in here 13 1/2 years ago, one of the first things I wanted to change was the carpet we had in the kitchen. It's just been one of those things we keep putting off, but now it's finally going to be GONE! Happy dance! I told Paul, though, that when the new floor gets put in my cupboards are going to look worse than they already do. He unfortunately told me I could then sand them and he would be more than willing to hand me the sander. :P What a party pooper. Can't say I didn't try though.
Our schedule has suddenly gotten about ten times fuller in the last week, too, all of the sudden with all the preparations for Christmas programs and parties. And as usually I don't see it slowing down again until at least February. Decided to try a new app on our phones to keep Paul in the loop a little more this year. I have such a hard time writing things on our calendar it seems, so sometimes he misses things. Hoping this will help alleviate some of that.
This week I have my grab bag broken down and in the store. The bright colors of this collection are so fun! Don't forget new releases are 20% off through Sunday.
And if you just have to have all of it...Grab the bundle and save!
Here is my layout using this kit.
Check out some more inspiration using this collection from my CT and the ScrapMatters' CT.
Until next time...Happy Scrapping!
