the votes are in...




and it's official!

i have lost my mind. it is no where to be found. it went missing sometime the around saturday.
i went into the scrapbook oasis, and came out minus my mind.

this is what i have purchased in the past 6 days.
and this only includes scrapbook related purchases.





this doesn't include the two kits i was lucky enough to order from teresa mcfayden.

{{ i so wanted to go to silver bella. but at that point i still had some assemblence of reasoning...
tickets to and from nebraska $300.00, two nights hotel $250.00, cab fare... ? food for the weekend... ?, money spent for goodies...??}}

no. i didn't go. i hated that i wasn't going. but i knew i shouldn't. a thinking mind i suspect, no? looking back it would probably have been cheaper to have gone to silver bella, than to have stayed here this week shopping like a mad woman.



this doesn't include the 5 hours spent {{yes, you heard me right}} at Nordstroms wednesday celebrating the Half Yearly Sale, with a girlfriend. thank god, its only twice a year!! thank you, thank you, thank you!






this doesn't include the private jewelry showing i went to this afternoon.

did i tell you i was crazy? i don't even wear jewelry, and i NEVER wear a necklace. i BOUGHT 5 this week!!! not one, not two, 5 necklaces!! wait... no... it was 6. i'm a crazy woman.



if i scrap everyday from now until christmas, i will hardly make a dent in my paper supply.

so once again...

no shopping for me until the end of the month. it worked wonders when i did this in october. it was the first time i'd ever cut myself off. but i guess if i am going to act like an addict, i must resort to addictive measures. cold turkey. thats it! no more stops to the shops i love...


no more art bar...
no more scrapbook oasis...
no more paper source...
no more norstroms sale...

and no more neklaces!!

in fact one is going back. if i showed it to you, you'd die. it is so not me. it fits my personality, as it is {{super bling}}, but it doesn't fit my fashion sense. i am a plain jane where it comes to fashion. i need no bling... besides i hear its hard to pull off successfully after 40 ;-)

well, me and my reeling head are off to bed. i will pray for my sense of reason to return to me. i will pray my husband not find out, that i apperently think he likes to work to pay for paper (and necklaces). i will pray for ugly papers to be created by the scrappin diva's in the coming months...

and i pray for a huge creative streak so that i can finally start using all this yummy goodness i find so hard to resist!!
