I went WILD buying more stash…

Before I show you my coupon extravaganza, let me show you the sweetness of NessaReifsnyder, last week’s Creative Mojo co-host.

Nessa brought me some booty . . .  here it is:

  1. A giant dotted rubber stamp for texture in my art journaling
  2. A set of two-tipped Stamp Markers
  3. Jolee’s Boutique dimensional cupcake stickers
  4. Reflections clear stamps

Now, MY damage:

I found 17 of these fabulous tissue paper sets in my local Dollar Store!  (I had to have them all, wouldn’t you?)

5  tissue paper sets

1 puzzle (to be repurposed)

3 sheets a of recycled, handmade paper

3 pieces of scrapbook paper (2-sided)

Paint pen applicator tips

Several clear stamps.

1 red and 1 green glitter pen

2 Water soluble graphite pens

A giant rubber stamp

a package of printed tissue papers

An “M” tablet for note taking on my desk

Paper Mod Podge

A can of paper petals



Best part?

I got EVERY SINGLE THING ON SALE!  EVERYTHING!   I made a game of it and wouldn’t BUY it if it wasn’t at a discount!  No kidding! 


I finally finished my art journal page  . . .

I screwed up the lettering, of course, and needed to cover it (ENTER: paper petals).  I glued them in, then glued plastic “crystals” in the middle of each.  I also added the two grooms and finished it on the first day that NEW YORK legally allowed same-sex marriages.  I went over the entire piece with, what else? Glitter Mod Podge!

Today’s blog-spiration, up next, cupcakes!  xoxom

    Great work on the sale and the art journal page. You look like a pro! What out Teesha Moore and Traci Bautista.

    I hate the Dollar Store! It smells bad! But now I am jealous of your shopping spree so… Waahhhhh!!! I hate the Dollar Store,

      Well, if it makes you feel better, it wasn’t “THE DOLLAR STORE” but a kind of Dollar Store. Relieved? LOL xoxom

    Beautiful journal! I never thought of doing an art journal! What a great idea!
    Great !! Another hobby to do!

      I find it, believe it or not, very similar to art quilting. It’s the same process, different medium. Try it. It’s easy. You can’t lose! xoxom

    Oh Mark – you are a natural. So good with color – have you ever considered a career in the arts? (read: dripping with sweaty sarcasm)

    I have a project and materials I have set aside that I hve not done. It would be similar to journaling. Its basically on canvas instead. Think am going to take another look at my supplies and see what I can do.
    Thanks, Mark for the inspiration… ;D!

    Jealous of, and happy for, you all at the same time. I also love to quilt and paper-craft. There are a lot of the exact same principles involved.

    Ohhh baby, any blog entry that places my name and “booty” in the same sentence must be good!! 😀

    Seriously, I love that you’ve already used the dotted stamp…I love that you found nothin’-but-bargains…and I loveloveLOVE that you Glitter Mod-Podged for your perfect finishing touch! The page is as inspiring as you are, dear one. Colorful and resplendent!

    Living vicariously thru your shopping spree… no more fabric or craft supplies until Quilt Festival in November. I’m using what I have on hand to make projects I’ve been planning to do forever. Not buying more is actually making me more creative! (But still a little jealous of your bargains…)
