After having a very enjoyable morning at work (and I mean that) I needed to stop at Walmart (ick) for some essentials.  While there, thought I'd pick up some iron-on batting as theirs is the least expensive, even with a coupon at Joann's.  They had some great bargains in the main aisle, and yes, I fell for it.  Hook, line, and sinker.  Actually did not get a whole lot accomplished for the my on-line stores today, but tomorrow is another day.  So here's the non-eventful events of the afternoon......

Who can resist $3.50 per bin, huh? And $3.50 for a pack of 3 smaller ones?

Poky Puppy and Little Golden Books fabric came in the mail yesterday. See the gorgeous stuff on the right? OOOOO Yep, lady bugs, to the left.
Picture
Look!!! I found my sewing machine table!!!
Picture
And set up those cheap bins with fabric, paper, pens, appliques, you name it. But it's organized! And the mini cutting table is cleared off! WOW ME!
Picture
I only located 1/2 of the guest bed, though. OH, well.....
Picture
This last photo is me determined to fix every demo to perfection and add something to its package so I can list each on Etsy tomorrow.  So each of the mini folder/binder thingy's are now fixed, getting a bonus item done, and yes..... I need more decoupage stuff.  crap

The case you see at the top left hand side of the photo is Bill's grandpa's special collection that he has nowhere to hang at his office.  Yet.  His office here in town has not been completed yet so he figures hanging it in the hallway where his desk is probably isn't the right thing to do.  And his office in Omaha is just too far away to put this treasure.  So here it lays, on our dining room table - but it's safe and sound.  But should I be using a paint brush around it?  Hmmmmm

As the hub has a gig, me and Mark Harmon will keep up with each other this evening, keeping busy doing something.  I really do wish he'd get a different haircut in that show, though.  tee hee  

Get creative - and have a blessed weekend!  I'll update something tomorrow, hopefully.  :)

As many know, shopping and I do not get along.  But I was in the part of town for a meeting this morning that also included Joann's and Staples on the way back home.  AND I had a 50% off coupon, which I always save to use on the outrageously expensive Peltex that's used on just about every sewn item that's done in this house.  How do people buy it without a coupon?  Anyway..... here's the mother load from my shopping trip this morning.  
Picture
Big roll of Peltex...... ugh it's expensive but SO needed. Those rings inside the roll are a secret.
Picture
30% off FatQuarters.... no brainer
Picture
Art books, sewing portfolios, cooking binders...... and all either 40% or more off!
Picture
My Staples trip was well worth it as they had a 3-Ring Binder sale going on.  Buy 3 and get one free!  Well, Katie bar the door and sign me up!  The little books weren't on sale, but that's okay as they are a great price to begin with.

BUT....  the Staples customer service was over the top wonderful!  And I told them that while I was there.  Since I'm sort of in that same line of work, I truly appreciate GOOD customer service - and they have it rocking and rolling at our local store.  Oh, to be able to run into that kind of service more often.... it would make shopping so much easier for those of us who hate it!  Thank you, Harrison, for your greeting, your smile, your helpfulness AND conversation!!!  You totally made my day.
