There seemed to be a barrage of generous craft store coupons circulating between Thanksgiving and Christmas. There were no big ticket items I wanted, as is usually the case when I have a really good coupon in hand, so I laid in a good supply of Xyron refills. Seriously, does anyone pay full price for those? They are crazy expensive without a coupon.
I did manage to pick up an interesting goody or two (or ten) while “saving money”. I mean, c’mon, it’s no fun to only buy adhesive, right? And that means it’s time for another installment of…
What’s in Tami’s Shopping Bag?
(cue the confetti and noisemakers)
At Michaels, these glittery Martha Stewart chrysanthemum stickers caught my eye on my way to the adhesive aisle. And near the checkout stand, I found this awesome notepad divided into days of the week. Also, those cute little alpha stamps were in a bin for only $1. – I think that’s a steal! I haven’t done much stamping at all lately, but I used the “you can’t have enough teeny alpha stamps” rationale. Plus, for that price, I don’t mind sharing them with my preschooler.
At JoAnn, I found all kinds of cute stuff by Colorbok on sale. I will admit I haven’t paid much attention to this company since my early days of scrapbooking, when David Walker alphabet stickers reigned supreme. But they are worth a second look these days. The Sweet Life line includes glittery chipboard sweets, candy colored phrases, and pastel alphadots reminiscent of candy buttons. I know a certain preschooler who is just waiting for me to let these out of my sight!
The Lucky You line had an awesome pad of list paper for journaling, some great label stickers, and a funny little package of chipboard mustaches. Oh, and I also picked up an unrelated package of colorful chipboard photo corners.

I picked up an extra Lucky You Journal List Pad, and on Friday I will pick a lucky commenter to share it with.
