shopping

I have nothing crafty to report. I've come home after work each day this week, made dinner and flopped on the couch. I've done absolutely nothing productive. I'm exhausted!!!!

For all of you who have been following the root canal drama, you'll be extremely happy to hear that it's finally over!!!! I had root canal part III today after work. My mouth is frozen so I can't tell if there's any pain, but I sure hope there isn't!!!

I'm extremely excited to report that my first issue of Marie Claire Idees has arrived!!!

It's absolute eye candy. I can't stop looking at it!!



I'm not a gardener, and I barely even like flowers, but I think this page is soo pretty.



And I just love this little guy, especially the buttons.



Before leaving for the cottage I went on a little shopping spree. I think the balance in my Paypal account is $1.37 right now, but I absolutely love my new Japanese fabrics. I totally splurged. Totally!!



And more...



Finally, I ordered the Snapsetter from eBay. I've yet to open the package, so I don't know if it will work, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed.



I think I'm going to be in "Use what you have" mode for a while. My little spree was expensive, but completely worth it!!!

yay for the tooth being fixed!

Those are some nice fabrics, you bad girl!! I'll be interested to see how the snap tool works. I was thinking about getting one of those.

Did you get a subscription to Marie Claire Idees? I tried to find the mag and cannot.

Great fabrics. Report back on the snap press.

Ooooo- yes, totally worth it! Glad the tooth is taken care of. After my root canal was re-done by the endodontist, it's been something I haven't had to think about AT ALL. Very nice.

Snapsetter is awesome. Once you get the hang of it you'll want to set a snap onto everything!

Beautiful fabrics. Great shopping spree.
The Snapsetter works, but I haven't used it in ages.

Glad to hear the dental visit was your last.

Weekend is almost here and you'll be rejuvenated!

Those Japanese fabrics are dangerous I tell you! They did the same thing to my account!! They are ever so lovely though!

Very interested in if the snapsetter works.

That's the snap setter that I use! I didn't like it at first, but after I got the hang of it I like it okay. The only down fall is all the hammering, but the price is much better than a snap press, for sure!

Tracy said...

Me drooling over all the goodies here! How did you get you subscription to Marie Claie? The newsagent I used to get in from no longer is carrying it *SNIFFLE* I love that magazine :o( Let us know how the snapping goes. So glad the tooth tension is over--hooray! Take the weekend to rest, relax, rejuvenate ((HUGS))

I'm with the others on the snapsetter. I like it - just not all the banging. And now we moved (this past month) and I have no "husband's workbench" to hammer on...

look, i'm gone for a month and you're already a bad bad influence!

Yeah--the root canal is done!! hooray! I'm interested to hear what you think of the snap setter too. Aren't snaps just frustrating little stinkers sometimes? lol
