I'm So Proud of Myself! (in a humble way!)

I've been part of a Card Swap for the past year with an awesome and talented bunch of girls from my neighborhood in Queen Creek, AZ. Once a Month we make 13 cards with a theme(this month is 2 Tags) and then get together on the first Friday of the month to Swap them. (In my case, I mail them and miss out on the socalizing :o( so sad.) Usually I get an idea I think is cute and I do it. This month, the creative juices were flowing too much! I had so many Ideas that I couldn't pick one. And then, when I would sit down to actually do it, I would forget about my "great idea" because I had a new idea. It was actually very discouraging. I actually went to the craft store with no plans and ended up spending $93. DONT TELL TIM! I was sick about it when I got home (Major buyers remorse) so then I started over. I got an Idea, I wrote it down so I wouldn't forget. I wrote down the supplies that I needed and I went back to the craft store. Returned most everything. I did get some things on clearance for .50 cents that I kept. And I bought a sticker maker. YAY! So I kept those Items and returned $60. worth of stuff. I went and bought what I "needed" and an extra Stack of Glitter Paper because it was So DANG CUTE! Then, I came home and got to work! I am so excited how my Tags turned out. I'm so excited that I came up with the cute idea on my own and it didn't look like my 5 year old did it. :o) Press F5 to refresh.

Those are SO cute! You have every right to feel proud of yourself. I love them! And way to go on returning all that stuff. I'm horrible about that. I'll have major buyer's remorse, but then just eat the money and try to forget about it. No wonder I'm so poor...

Found your blog now. I don't list ours publicly, so I'll have to send it by email sometime. Anyway, we're on our way to OK by way of AZ and TX this weekend. Sorry we didn't take up the offer to apply for McKesson and move out to GA with y'all. But we're still in a similar experience.
