Thrifty Finds

So... what I have I been spending my garage sale money on? Stuff from other people's garage sales! Seriously... it's a sickness... but it's my only vice left!

Last week, Martha and I went shopping... and I picked up some of these items.... Others I bought sans miss Martha... because, to be honest... if she'd been with me we would have had to wrestle over them... and I hate to have to beat up my friends.

Avast Me Hearties! Arrrrg!


Talk Like a Pirate Day is soon approaching me maties! September 19th to be exact. To celebrate I be hostin' a lil' challenge with some treasured blog booty!

To take part just make a card or a layout to celebrate the day and post a link here on me blog before the 17th day of this September.

I will choose the best of all the buccaneers, and they will receive some fun loot! No hornswagglin' now... you can only enter once!

If you care to overhaul ye Pirate speak lookee here lassie.

If ye require some swashbuckling stamps to create ye projects... I'd be settin' sail for justjohanna's Odd Bird Planet.

It's Almost ALL Gone!

So... I sold 90% of my stamps... and it felt so good! Don't worry, I have gobs left.

BTW... are you an Illinois Demo in need of some supplies? I have large heavy boxes full of Stampin' Success', Inspiration sheets, postcards, order forms... Plus lots of convention key chains and workbooks, old catalogs from 7 years... mini's too... It's be a great haul for a new demo.

I'd take cash or whatever... I am open to suggestions. Just email me if you are interested.

Pick up only... I can't carry this HEAVY box to the Post office. Rather, I don't want to. :)

Get Yer Shop On!

Please tell everyone you know! I can't make my husband carry these boxes BACK into the house! :)

I am having a MAJOR Garage Sale on 9/5 - 9/7 from 9AM to 5PM. I am selling MOST of my Stampin' Up! stamps; hundreds... and almost all under $10 (most under $5), some non-SU! stamps too, TONS of paper, tools, punches, alterable items, embellishments... etc, etc, etc. Lots of current sets, many retired sets. Come one come all!

Attention Demos: I have a lot of supplies that are perfect for your classes! Or buy $5 sets just for workshop prizes! Many are UNMOUNTED or at least UNUSED!

Also lots of little boy (newborn- 3T), toys, plus size women's clothes, and household stuffs.

If you live in the area please tell your friends! I am sorry, but I can not accept pre-sale viewing or save items for anyone. There is just TOO MUCH to go through! But PLEASE come see what I have. You will not be disappointed!

From the Mouths of Babes...

Andy, "Who's that guy?"
Me, "Barack Obama".
Andy, "Is he taking over for President Lincoln cause Lincoln died?"
Me, "I hope so".

I guess that trip to Springfield when Andy was 2 really made an impact!
