Mega Sizzix and Other Goodies Haul!

I hope y'all are having a great Tuesday!  I know I am!!  Ok, so if you saw my post from last Friday you'll have noticed that I had a bunch of Sizzix dies and a Big Shot machine on my "I Need This" list.  I really really really want one of these!  So much so that I have been pricing them, watching videos, and really just drooling uncontrollably.  On Monday I got an e-mail from Michael's with a 50% Off coupon!!!  Really, I think it was fate!

At Michael's (and Hobby Lobby and Jo-Ann's) the BigKick machine is $119.99.  I couldn't find it for less than $85 online not including shipping.  Well, half of $119.99 is $59.00 so I headed out to Michael's yesterday to pick one up!  I also went to Hobby Lobby because they carry more dies than Michael's does.

Here are the awesome things I picked up from Michael's!  I got the BigKick machine, a spool of turquoise twine, a turquoise chalkboard, and those fun wooden magnetic letters from their new Make Market collection - which is sooo stinking cute!  I want everything from that collection!  I also found the Art C Accordian book and Sizzix Crease Plate on clearance and couldn't pass those up either.  The two Stampendous stamp sets, Martha Stewart Dove punch, and Heidi Swapp Color Shine mists were all on clearance as well.  I've been looking for a racoon stamp for ages and found this super cute set by Recollections in their Valentine section!

At Hobby Lobby I found three of the dies that I have been drooling over!!  The Frameworks dies - Honeycomb and Courtyard (which was on Clearance!) and the Mixed Media 1 set!  Hobby Lobby has Tim Holtz products on sale this week which of course worked out wonderfully well!  I picked up a small chipboard chalkboard for my youngest to play with, some new scissors, another Tim Holtz die set from the Clearance aisle, and that super cute St. Patrick's Day washi tape!

Here are my new dies all cut out!  Aren't they awesome?  I will definitely be using them very soon!

So that was Monday!  Well, I needed to pick up a Magnetic Movers & Shapers plate to use my new seahorse and sand dollar dies so I decided to go back out and pick one up today.  First, I stopped by Jo-Ann's.

I finally remembered to pick up a full sized Hot Glue Gun.  So I grabbed one with my coupon and some extra long glue sticks.  Jo-Ann's had die cutting stuff on sale (can you tell I shop sales as much as possible?) so I went ahead and grabbed that awesome On the Edge - Torn Paper die and an extra set of cutting plates.  I also snagged the Zen Doodle magazine.  Y'all know how much I love doodling and I'm thinking of maybe submitting something sometime.

After Jo-Ann's since I was on the same street, I decided to stop in Tuesday Morning.  Look what I found there...

I found these awesome dies!  I love love love that Star die.  I saw a video where Dyan Reavely made awesome Dylusions ornaments using those stars and I've been dying for it ever since.  There was no way I was walking out of the store without it!  I also found that awesome circle die and cooresponding cutting pads and another On the Edge die! 

It was fate, I'm telling you!  All my drooling and then that coupon sent me right over the edge.  I know when to take a hint!  I however did not get back around to Hobby Lobby for the Movers & Shapers tray.  I'll have to get that next go round.  I don't think I'll be using those particular dies right away so I've got time to let my pocket book breathe just a little bit.  I have plenty to keep me busy with all of this!

I just wanted to share with all of y'all.  Be watching for lots of new projects using my new toys coming soon!

Have a great day and I'll see you later!

Until then,
