Amazing Michaels Deals ..

Hello my dear friends,

 ... it's cold outside! Our temperatures are dropping here in southern Ontario and more snow is coming too. It was  -29 C at noon just before lunch time two days ago and the day before that it was just a  bit warmer but not by much.

But the weather did not keep me inside and away from finding great deals at Michaels ~ no it didn't. I really didn't think that I would find very much neither but I did and I saved so much money that it made my day. My bill should have come to over $143 but it only came to $32!!

I found all sorts of things like ... a new Martha Stewart glitter in an amazing apple green color, Tim Holtz label pulls, a complete Christmas stamp set and all other sorts of bits and pieces of crafty things and I am sure I will be able to use all of them this year round when creating new treasures.

Take a look ...
(I am sorry that some of the pictures aren't so good ~ it was a bad photo day for me)

This stamp set was an amazing deal ~ from $25 down to $2.50!

These berries were one of the last Christmas sale items I found.
Also a deal ... from $13.50 down to $1.35!

This is actually scrap booking fabric.

I bought these rather large clock hands for a special project.
I haven't worked out all the fine detail yet but I am sure I will get there some time.
These tags are one of Michaels new $1.50 bin (here in Canada) pieces and they come in all different shapes.
All I have to do is make sure I use all of these in some of my creations and don't forget I have them tucked away in a drawer (again). I must say it really is worth going out of your way a little some times even if you don't really feel like it. In this case I saved a lot of money.
I hope you are well my dear friends and life is treating you kind.
Have a peaceful and creative day,
Karen B.
