I Love Coupons!

Oh, I was NAUGHTY today!

This is what happens when I'm free and have coupons in hand. I don't NEED these books.....but you see, I can rationalize buying them! A dangerous combination if I do say so!

The "Circular Baby Afghans" and the "Easy Japanese Quilt Style" books were purchased at Joann Fabrics with 50% off coupons. The Leisure Arts "Our Best Baby Afghans" was purchased at Hobby Lobby with a 40% off coupon (plus it's replacing a copy that I lost to my basement flooding!) and well, "The Big Book of Animals" was purchased at full price (however less then $10.00!)....but it was just too darn cute to leave!

There's projects in each that I would love to do, and maybe someday I'll actually get to them. But for now, they are fun just to thumb through and dream up fabric/yarn combinations for! Ahhh - picture books for adults :)

Well, since I put in such a hard day of shopping, I feel the need for a nap! Some rain storms passed through earlier today and the air is fresh, clean and cool = good snuggle weather. So, I am going to take advantage of the cool and my cuddly blankets, and dream of all the crafts in my new books!

Take Care and Thanks for Stopping! - Elizabeth

I have made a ton of stuffed animals in my time. It's such fun to take a piece of flat fabric and make a personality out of it. Good job on the coupons. Enjoy pouring through them at your leasure.

I love coupons. I figure if I buy a book it's going to stay on my shelf so I can enjoy it over and over. On the other hand I can spend $10.00 on a magazine, flip through it a couple of times and then put it away (or recycle it) and never look at it again. Sounds like you did good.
