I would like to start this post off by saying that this blog is about a real person and her real life: not that other blogs are fake, just that I want this blog to be about what I'm thinking about and living at the moment. I want this blog to be extremely personalized and mostly focusing around the real life of a young woman in University who cooks, scrapbooks and writes.
This week was a busy one - but sadly I took approximately 0 photos. This week was both Valentines day and our One Year Anniversary. And we still took 0 photos. What was with me this week?
I did however fall further into my love of scrapabooking this week and I decided to do an annual Project Life album. So this weekend I went to Michael's in search of supplies. Armed with an app full of coupons and nothing but time I browsed for over an hour and left the shop with a bag of goodies:
Michael's having a Door Buster sale on albums and paper pads for $5 each! I let myself get a cute, mermaid themed paper pad that I can use to scrapbook vacations and beach trips. I might not currently have a use for this product, but the summer is coming! And TJ and I have plenty of tropical ideas for the future.
I bought my very first set of Thickers today (which, when I first heard someone mention, I thought they were just saying "stickers" with a lisp). They are mixed between upper and lower case letters which annoys me a little but they were the best I found. I also got a regular set of black alpha stickers, a clearance set of colorful bow tie stickers and a clearance set of vacation/travel stickers.
I picked up my first every set of acrylic stamps by JilliBean Soup (I still need to get an acrylic block), a black ink pad and a set of project life cards. Not shown are the two 12x12 clear paper containers I picked up because all craft storage was 60% off!
I am so close to getting my craft room! I currently have all of my supplies in a hallway closet that was meant for linens and it's a chore to transport them all to my desk in the kitchen every time I want to scrap. TJ and I are both very excited for our upcoming craft space upgrade as he currently uses the coffee table for his crafts.
