Little haul of stuff!

Hey everyone...

How your Thursday going? My Thursday is going well I finally "cut" into my Heirloom paper stack. I think it funny I was looking through the paper stack and decided to cut the paper of tags and numbers of one of the papers in the pack. As I was tearing the paper out of the stack I caught myself saying. Do I really want to cut this paper? It is pretty and a cool design. I then said heck! yeah why did I buy this paper if I'm not going to cut into it.

Anyways, today I went out into the world to use my 40% off coupon from Hobby Lobby and Joann's I got in my email. I got some good items. There were few I couldn't find but can get those online. I was going to go to Joann's but heard that I could use a Joann's coupon at Michael's. So all in all it was a good day. I got what I wanted and got to get out and breath some fresh air for a change. Here some photos of the items and including a haul video of me yet again showing off my wonderful supplies. Aren't you guys just tried of seeing my face on camera!??? lol. Hope you all have a good day and enjoy the photos and video.

Hobby Lobby is the first place I stop to...

Then Michaels was the last place I stop the pic above and the two
below are what I got at Michaels.

My Joann Haul video!


Hope everyone Friday is going well and you're all enjoying the start of your weekend. I know I'm because I just got my scrapbook supplies from it arrived at my door around noon. I got email last night saying my order is being shipped to me. But wasn't expecting it to get here as soon as the next day, lol. I guess their warehouse is here in Michigan. Because I look where I could track my order I guess it didn't have far to go. Which I think is awesome since I can play! with it sooner. All the stuff came in fine "shape" no damage to report. Might order from them again. I was going to only order two things. Those two things are near the end of the video. But decided to just look at other things. I decided to order some more since they had some sales and since I had coupon in my email. It was free shipping and that is good in my eyes since I don't have to worry about shipping and handle but I had to pay tax it cost a little bit more. But know I can afford it and pay it off so no worries there for me. Hope you all enjoy the video of me "showing off" my new supplies. Have a great weekend.

Hope everyone week is going well. My week going well not too bad. I just put in order for some more scrapbook supplies on the other day. Now hopefully it'll get here sometime next week. It my first time ordering off of their site. I wanted to get one or two things because I had a coupon in my email for free shipment for any order over $40.00. I spent well over that because they had some great sales marked down from the regular price. I'll do a haul video and post it up as soon as I can. I know how much some of you enjoy my videos! ;) heheh.

Well it been a cold week here in Michigan it gotten down to the low digits . It sunny today up 14 degrees but still COLD! Monday it was even colder down to -1 degrees. Now that is really cold for Michigan never remember being that cold. I was up early and was looking out my window Monday morning about 8 am and saw frozen snowflakes stuck to my window. I decided to take some photos they are really neat. Thought it could make some good shots and neat photos. Who knows maybe I'll do a scrapbook layout of these photos. Or could make art piece out of them on photoshop.
Hope you all enjoy the photos. Have a great evening and enjoy the rest of your week.

Hey guys,

I decided to post a video of my Black and White Photography. I took back in the fall of 2004 while I was in college. I decided to pick the best ones I like and even added a bit of color to some of them to give a bit of a splash, lol. I put this on my YouTube channel since I got few good comments. I decided to put on my blog. For those of you that don't view my channel. Let me know what think of them.

Everything else is going well not too bad just chillin' and relaxing going to start doing some more layouts. I just need to print out few pictures for the layouts. I plan on doing at least 4 or 5 of them. One might even see a little blond haired Justie! in one of the layouts I have idea for. 3 of them going into my grandma Stilwell's family heritages book. One going into my grandma smith's family heritage book. If I decide to do another one it going into my grandfather's heritage book. So, soon there will be pictures up in a post on here.
