So I felt so proud of myself because I didn't shop too much this month. I just looked at my credit card statements, and I only spent about $50 at Michaels and Joann's for the whole month of April. This is pretty good for me! Only about 3 visits total in April. usually I would go to each store at least once a week. that means I would make about 8 visits to a craft store per month! shocking!
I had a pretty close call shopping online. I almost spent $60 online yesterday but I kept thinking about project 2011 and how proud I was of myself, so I stopped. I closed the browser quickly and walked away. If I can narrow it down to $25-$30 I'll allow myself to buy it next month. I'm hoping that I keep spending less and less because I KNOW I have plenty of stash to use already.
ugh...and you all haven't even seen my yarn stash! *hangs head in shame*
So one of the things I bought this month was the 'World Traveler' stack by DCWV and a 'notebook' paper punch. so here are 3 layouts that I made this month (haven't had much crafting time).
Here we go...
When I bought this stack, I was so excited but then I didn't use it as much as I thought I would. So I'm using it now and trying to limit my purchase of papers and stacks....well, a girl can try!
I wonder if taking it a week at a time will be easier for me...celebrating every sunday that I didn't go shopping that week by giving myself some extra crafting time. I'll try that this month.
I hope you all did your best this month too :)
If you didn't, there's always next month!
