Treating Myself

We don't really 'celebrate' Valentine's Day in our house. Meaning we don't buy gifts on just that day. It really is just another day. That doesn't mean I can't love me, myself and I by buying some things that make me happy, right? I thought I would share a few things that I have treated myself to lately....

I came across the the coolest new scrapbook magazine at my local Barnes & Noble last.month. It is called Scrap 365. I loved that it was fresh new artsy styles from people that I had never heard of. There are so many creative people out there, but it always seems to be the same people on DT's and being published. Don't get me wrong, they are all very talented, it is really nice to see some fresh faces (at least to me). It is a little price-y, but I am worth it!
I found this cute little basket on clearance at Michael's. It brightens my desk and makes me smile
I recently saw a give-away on Shimelle's blog for these sweet earrings. Alas, I did not win, but I did check out their etsy shop and I had to buy these:
I love happy mail! You can check out their etsy shop for all kinds of cute earrings.
Speaking of happy mail, these awesome Supahfans shirts finally arrived from my friend Kevin's Boston store. Better late than never, right? I am bummed about the Superbowl loss, but I still love my Pats!
Check out what is new from Tim Holtz! Ranger Ink Distress Markers! They are so cool! I already pre-ordered them:
And boy do I love this little guy. I know I did not necessarily buy him, but he has been a true gift to our family.  Even when he is being a pain in the butt.. I mean really, look how cute he is...
Still got a a few crafty things in the works.
The Let's Scrap Blog Hop is still going strong.
There is lots of time to still play along.
I am also working on some layouts for the Amy Tan/Studio Calico Stretch your Kit class.
I have also finally got my hands on some new scrappy goodies, that I can not wait to play with.

Happy Scrappin'!!!
