Hobby Lobby & Michael's Haul

Hi Everyone,
Thank you all for the birthday wishes...I had a great weekend, just hanging out with Scott and Ethan. Friday mom, Ethan and I took a trip to Hobby Lobby, its about an 1-1/2 away so we only really go once a year...
Here's my haul....



I really didn't do any scrapping this weekend, but I did get my room nice and organized. I needed to make plans on where my new toy was going to go...I ordered a Silhouette...Teri got one about a week or so ago and she just loves it...The detail the machine will cut is amazing...If you head over to her blog you'll see some projects she's made...So after debating and then seeing her projects I jumped in and ordered one. I can't wait to get it....I'll share either a video or some pictures of my room later this week. I painted it a few months ago and did some rearranging.
Have a great Monday everyone...
Hugs and happy crafting...

  2. Can't wait to see what you think of this. I set mine up this weekend. I'm relatively new to this but was frustrated by some of the limitations of the Cricut. I'm not the neatest, most organized person in the world and I'm very concerted about losing the caps.

  3. Can't wait to see what you do with the Silhouette! I've been thinking about purchasing another type cutter, too...I have an Expression and an E2 but thinking about selling the Expression and getting something I can more easily do other die cutting with. :) Off to see your haul now!

  6. I think you are going to love your new Silhouette! Nichol Magourik inspired me to take the plunge and purchase yet another die cutting machine! I have only had mine about a month and I just love it! I still have and use all of my Cricut machines, but I am thinking I like my Silhouette more.

  7. Great haul! I'm in the same boat as you with Hobby Lobby (I'm in Bucks County)....it's a long drive, you must make the trip worth it. Looking forward to hearing about your Silhouette. -cas

  13. OMG! I guess it's a good thing that we don't have a hobby lobby here! The nearest one is 2 hours away. Since I can't get too far away from my mother, I can't go that far just for shopping! Maybe one day!
    Hugs, Jessica

  14. So glad you had a great birthday. Doesn't it feel good to have your craft area organized? I love it when I take the time to put everything in its place.
    I love haul videos, it's so fun to see what everyone else uses! I don't have a Hobby Lobby here, but have thought of ordering on line sometime. Thanks for sharing your goodies.
    I know what you mean about the Silhouette, I have seen Teri's creations and wow, the detail is amazing. Can't wait for your videos.

  15. Could you please explain the differences in Cricut vs Silhouette? Does the other machine use cartridges? The Teri blog said she uses cutfiles from others, so I'm guessing it's like the usb software? I'd love to hear lots more about it :)

  16. What a haul! Have fun with your goodies. Love the music charms. I'm going out of town so will have to check Michael's out. Working on a mini for my son's music tour in Ireland this past St. Patrick's Day and those would be awesome.
    Thanks for sharing.

    Hi,

    It is Sharon Sissorhands here. I liked your haul and always enjoy seeing what others buy. I have been ordering from Joanns, shop by mail about 3 times a week. Big orders and now I must cut myself off from it as property tax time is around the corner. I am pretty new to the videos on computer because I was without a computer for about 3 years. I have always been a stamper and now I am into die cuts and all the pretty papers we never had years ago.

    Any way thank you for putting yourself out there and sharing with the rest of us.

    Hi Again,

    Sorry, I spelled my own name wrong. I think I was nervous, it is my first time leaving a comment.

  20. great! I have a silhouette so can't wait to see your creations using that and learn more :)

  21. I cannot wait until you get your Silhouette! My Cricut died a couple of weeks ago and I've been trying to decide whether to get the Silhouette or something else. Now that I know you're getting one and Teri got one too, I'll get one! Looking forward to the videos you'll be doing!

  22. Wonderful items you bought at HL & Michaels. Especially like: the mini garden tools for layout (I've been having a salad with cherry tomatoes from our garden), lace trim, Making Memories pearls, musical instruments and stitched paper.

  24. Happy Birthday......Congrats on your new machine! I hope you won't stop doing the videos on the E2 though, I just got one and have enjoyed the ones you've done. As a new cricut owner, they've been very helpful. Keep up the good work!
