WOYWW #381--Stamp Shelf Score!

Hi All,

Welcome to my home for another WOYWW week!  All this is made possible by Julia D., so please stop and say hello at Julia's Stamping Ground.  Don't forget to visit all the other fabulously talented ladies & gents blogs.  You will be amazed!

Here's what my desk looks like this week....and this is my story and I'm sticking to it!

Sunday was spent running errands. One of the stores I needed to stop in wasn't open until 1 pm but it was only noon. Just so you know, they close at 5 pm...I say why bother!

Since I had time to dawdle, I decided to stop our local thrift store.  I no sooner had 3 toes in the door when my DH called.  I stomped outside muttering to myself about his poor timing, I mean really, I'm shopping.
I don't call him in the middle of watching football!

This time I will forgive him because, as I was impatiently listening to him, I noticed a decorated Christmas tree inside with one of the ornaments being a glass Chocolate Silk pie. After rushing the call all the whilst blowing the proverbial kisses into the phone, I ran back in to grab said ornament before it was gone, as I'm sure there were dozens of people clamoring to get their hands on it. I picked it off the tree and proceeded to walk around the store like a proud peacock! You see it just so happens that Chocolate Silk pie is one of my DH's favorite treats so the ornament was a little smile to him from me.

You know they say when you give, you get more in return. It's true I tell ya.  While browsing the aisles with my prized pie in hand, I spotted "you get more in return".  Here it is, a little black video shelf that will hold all my stamp sets and Spectrum Noir markers. And for only $6.40.  I was so proud that I proceeded to the register with my head held high, chest out, stomach sucked while doing the Princess wave...LOL!

Needless to say, I haven't crafted this week as I've been too busy arranging and rearranging my craft supplies to include my new storage find.  Roma's here to supervise tonight!

Until next week....Start each day with a grateful heart and a pocket full of sparkles~
Here it is...yes...he loved it!
