I'm Bad ....

I was at work today &  had to run an errand & 
somehow got sucked into a vortex & ended up in Michaels
Believe it ?        Didn't think so 

anyway - I picked up another desk top storage bin 
& a few goodies - 
ALL on sale again .  I like the word Sale 

Not sure where I am keeping everything yet 
wanna clean up more of the stash & organize  better 

here are a few treats 
better get back to cleaning .....
will post more later 

have a creative day

Dr Dreadful Alien Autopsy & new storage & Hull

Was up & put of the house early today driving 
Garett & his buddy to Hockey in the -27 ( feels like -40) weather 

I figured an act of great parents deserved a trip to Michael's on the way home 
Good rational, lol

Picked up some ... well a few things ...

First I grabbed a few Christmas cards that can be altered for next year at 50 cents a pack

Second as i was milling around the scrapbook products - 
Something in the isle caught my eye ....
5 Lifestyle Dies by QuickKutz for $12
They were all packed together - the only one I wanted & 
didn't get was an alarm clock but it was packed with others I had in my bin 
But I did get to use my 50% coupon on it - 
so maybe I will grab the stack for $6... 
I can always give the doubles away  

I picked up 2 pkg of ready to go cards & 2 pkg of treat bags 
I love having things like this handy for quick gifts  

Next one is blurry sorry - 
7 gypsies file tags for 2.99
and a cute pack of white trim for the 1.50 bins

I wanted some mosge podge for a really cool canvas I pinned recently - 
hoping to do in a week or 2 - picked these up for 6.99 for both - 1 matt 1 glossey 

I have a thing for skeleton keys
and beleive it or not these were 50 cents for 2
they were in the Christmas section 
I think they are going to be amazing on a valentine 

Then I grabbed a few Christmas Washi tapes ON SALE of course 
and a 3 pack of Valentine that was not ...
Will now need to talk to Tracy L for storage solutions for them ....

Lastly i picked this up for 50% off
It is shallower than most storage & is meant for table top ...
Wish they had two.

Top bucket comes out for an extra shelf 
& markers / pens can be used on the go 

Thats was my hull

On to my day ...
When I got home I made my little monster eggs 
he ate them up with the promise of an Alien Autopsy after
For Christmas I found him a Dr Dreadful candy maker.
They made these when my 15 yr old was younger ...
