My name is Lindsay and it’s been 28 hours since my last craft purchase. Hi friends! Do you ever feel like you are consuming more than creating? I feel like I have been very productive crafting but I have also been a productive shopper. I seem to go in spurts with shopping, I can go months with only buying necessary items for my business (framing supplies, packaging material) and then occasionally I fall off the wagon! June had been a big craft shopping smorgasbord with the Heirloom Stamp Show and tonight I will share some things I ordered on a great sale (to be fair I had a gift card for all but $10 at Jerry’s Artarama.) Oh and yesterday, I needed new sneakers and while I was out I stopped into Joann and ACmoore and some 97 cent a roll duct tape and other deals leaped into my basket, phew, it feels good to get that off my chest. I feel conflicted when I post a haul, on one hand I am excited and I like sharing the deals in case anyone is also looking for the items I found and I am interested in hearing what you would like me to demo first BUT I don’t want anyone to feel let down if they do not have access to what I have. I sometimes feel like “How can I call myself frugal when I have so much?” Although I hope that my videos can help others save money I’d rather spend my money to test out stuff and see if it is worth it (and share it in videos) so others can make informed decisions with their money. But on the other hand it might be enabling people to buy stuff. Hmmmm, what to do. Post a warning maybe? This is a haul video and may cause the overpowering urge to buy craft supplies?
Watch at your own risk.
I am actually really excited to try the creative palette vs the Gelli plate as the creative palette is generally cheaper and thinner to store. I hope to give it a try before my vacation, I am shooting double videos every day to make sure I will have videos for you when I go offline for a week. Let me know if there is any product you are excited about me trying, i have a very crafty week ahead of me! Oh and the other spree I mentioned earlier will be posted sometime when I am on vacation, I guess there are worse kinds of sprees to go on…nobody’s perfect. Thanks for stopping by and being my support group tonight and til next time happy crafting!
