Okay, how do I begin to explain all this?
Don't you worry, I am totally going to rationalize what happened. . .
You know when you place one order and then you kind of forgot you had placed that order? So, then you place another order with another company, and then you forgot you had placed TWO orders, so you keep ordering? Well, I kept ordering. . . .
and ordering. . . and ordering. It was quite the surprise when FOUR boxes arrived on my doorstep on Thursday night. Naturally, I told Mr. Super Stamp Girl that they were "all for customers." (wink, wink) Best. Excuse. Ever.
Let's take a closer look at all of my purchases this week. I always receive lots of comments inquiring about the items, so I have provided product names and company information and each photo also has a clickable link as well! You're welcome.

The first and smallest of this week's orders came from Lawn Fawn:
Self-rationalization: I'm mad for plaid. Plus, my friend Michelle showed me a card she had made with the Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Pop-Up and I couldn't say no. Say no to drugs, my friends. Never say no to stamps.
Then there was not one, but TWO, orders from my friend Donna at A Muse Studio.
Self-rationalization: They are effectively closing at the end of November (the owner is retiring) and it's every man (or woman) for herself. When in doubt of a product's future availability, always purchase NOW. Better safe than sorry.
There was this teensy-tiny, itty-bitty order from Stampin' UP! I mean, really, what's two stamp sets and two matching punches in the big scheme of things?
Self-rationalization: Duh, I'm a demonstrator! I HAVE to buy the products in order to show them and get YOU to buy them! P.S. - This is a totally legit answer.
And, my largest order for this week was from Papertrey Ink:
Self-rationalization: Okay, fine, I am out of good excuses. I'm out of excuses period.
So, let's recap this week's purchases:
17 new stamp sets $$$ (I'm too embarrassed to talk about the cost)
14 new dies $$$ (About the same embarrassing cost as the stamp sets)
2 new punches $32
10 new packets of sequins $39.95
A lifetime of endless stamping fun: Priceless
And in closing, the moral of today's share is "Say No to Drugs," my friends.
Never say no to stamps.
Thanks for visiting and have a wonderfully creative weekend!
I know I will. . .
