My weekend

Sunday, Sharon (my mother) and I went to a scrapbooking store about 30 minutes south of here. Here's what I bought:
Some stickers, the small ones on top, are shades of green alphabet, I thought a perfect size for ATC's. The next ones are some really cute sentiments. Then there are some chipboard stickers that made me think of Hawaii, hoping they'll help get me started on my Hawaii scrapbook. The last ones were just cute, they're a bunch of pet stickers.
On the bottom is a cut-out of a cruise ship, then a tiny Hawaii license plate and some coral stickers, I was hoping to use these in my Hawaii scrapbook as well. The butterfly stamps have spring words cute into them, and I thought they were cute.
There's a packet of Maya Road chipboard pieces, it includes 2 types of dress forms, scissors, needles, spools, hangers and sewing machines. I don't know what I'll do with them, but I love chipboard and shapes. The top is a packet of blue rub-on letters, another perfect size for ATCs. I decided to buy some yellow distress ink, I was thinking of blue or green, but I have SU ink pads in those colors, and I figured they'd work just as well. The bottom piece is a couple of butterfly notecards, those I bought to include in a swap I'm in. I'll let you know more about it in the future.
These is another sheet of rub-on's, they were 75% off, the main reason I bought them, plus rub-on's are fun to use.
Here are the papers I bought, they're all 12x12, in various patterns and shades of blues and greens. I believe those are my favorite colors. I don't know what I'll do with these, but I'm sure I'll come up with something.
When we were paying, my mother filled up one of those cards where you spend so much and then get X amount off your next purchase. It was $10 off her next purchase. She told me, she'd give it to me and then I could pay her off, how nice of her was that?
And she hasn't let me forget it either. Yesterday, I brought home a brownie from the library, because my supervisor had baked them, after eating it and saying how nice it was that I brought it to her, she asks where her $10 is. It sure makes me not to want to do anything nice for her.
Yesterday I went to our local antique mall to look for a vintage tin, for the Vintage Tin Swap I'm participating in. I did find 3 very cute tins, and I don't know which one I'm going to use yet, so I didn't want to ruin the surprise by putting a picture up. I'm so happy I found some, ever since I heard about the idea of this swap, I've been going to garage sales (I usually don't by myself, but because I wanted to participate in this swap and I also want to see if there's anything I can't keep my hands off) to find the perfect one, and I haven't found any yet, I even went to the Salvation Army store Tuesday looking for one. Now I have 3 to choose from.

sounds fun. I do love finding a good bargain and have lots of vintage tins. One of my favourites is an old vintage silver tea tin.

Ramona,
They're not altered tins, I just pick a tin and fill it up with goodies for a partner.

Amelia,
Thank you so much for following and commenting on my blog.
