A trip to Michaels, and a note about Pinterest...

Good morning! Yesterday I mentioned that I went to Michael's on Sunday, so I wanted to post a few pictures of what I bought, mainly stuff that I can use in my dad's legacy book, but also a few extras. Here you go...

Some Valentine's Day decor items at 40% off.
I can also use them throughout the year in my studio,
which is decorated in whites, taupe, and pale
pink. I loved the little "Love" book that has
blank kraft pages in it...

I had a 20%-off coupon to apply to all items
not on sale, so these are some things I bought for the book,
other than the wire-wrapping booklet which is for my
future endeavor in trying my hand at making some jewelry...

A Recollections paper pad, at 40% off. I must say that
this company produces my favorite papers. (You will
see where I used some papers from their "Portobello Road"
collection in my dad's book). This one
is called "Love Letters", and I have provided you some
pictures of the papers in the pad. Many are glittery, all
are printed on kraft-type paper, and there were also a
couple of pages of lovely tags...

Aren't they beautiful?

And a note about Pinterest. I must admit that I have a serious addiction problem to this wonderful means of sharing ideas with like-minded friends. Not to mention that my pinning at night comes in handy when I'm trying to stay awake watching TV. Though I'm fairly new to the game, I have accumulated some followers that make me proud that I have pinned anything worth their time, and I likewise follow those with whom I share much.

Just as a reminder, you can link to my boards via my sidebar. I have recently added a board called "Tempting Art Tutorials" to which I have added some YouTube tutorials that I think are worthy of your time. I keep them on one of my private ("secret") boards until I have time to watch them. If I don't think they are that great, they don't make it to the new board. If they are good, I add my own comments and move them to my Tutorials board. Take a look...I think you'll find it worth the time! I still have many that I need to view, so stay tuned.

Well, that's all for now. Thanks for visiting me!

    1. Thanks Sherry! It's amazing how you can get lost and lose track of the time while browsing. Kind of like shopping without a need for money!
