Well, you know the rest. It spells CANDY! Blog candy, that is! To show my appreciation to those of you great folks that have taken the time to visit A Stampin' Good Time, I am offering some really yummy treats. Let's see... there is a 6 x 6 pad of BG Infuse, the Big Paisley stamp from Lizzie Anne's Simply Singles, 5 packs of clear stamps from Mike's, a Heidi Swapp paper distresser, some Prima Mini Me's, various Primas in SU Stampin' Store containers and a couple of yards of my most favorite ribbon from May Arts. How do you get an opportunity for such a scrumptious buffet of paper pleasing goodies? Well, post the answers to the following fun questions on the comment section of this post and I will randomly choose a winner this Friday, August 10th. Simple as eating pie (or candy, in this instance.)
My local stampin' and scrappin' buddies often joke about our "creative accounting" when it comes to making supply purchases and dealing with our DH. One trick is the "tools don't count" method (I actually began a discussion on this on a forum at SCS a while back.) It seems when our DH embark on a home improvement project, they always seem to fall short of having some tool or another that they need to complete the job. Of course, when figuring out the cost of the total project, they do not seem to take the cost of the tool in to account because it is not a consumable product AND they might (might being the important word) use it again someday, all the while "collecting" these tools in the garage, work shed, etc. So let's look at the world of paper crafting, we can justify many purchases in the same way. Yes, I have a trimmer but this trimmer cuts straighter or scalloped or is easier to transport- you get the picture. Scissors, stamps, mats, knives, punches, rulers- the list can go on and on. So here's the deal, our DH are mostly intelligent men. Eventually, they will catch on. So if you would, please share with me either a "creative accounting" idea of your own, a tall tale that you have told your DH/SO about something you have purchased or some similar story. Now if you do not have a story like this to tell, that's okay, you can just leave the comment "I am a paper crafting goddess!" It is always good practice to say positive things about ourselves! DH is saying I need more rest so for now, Take care!
