DJ TRIANGLE & BIG SCORE at Michael's!

Saturday night I scored big-time at Michael's! Bought a Shelving Cube unit and some Sizzix dies. The big score? They were all 50 percent off, PLUS I had another coupon that gave an additional 20% discount off my TOTAL purchase! WOWZER! How great is that?! I'm happy.

Today me and a phillips screwdriver put the little shelving cubby  together. Everything fit together really well and all the screw holes lined up! Excellent. *big grin*.


 

The new cubby now sits to the left of my laptop, on the desk and under the printer. Eventually all my printer related stuff will be in it instead of stacked in a bookcase somewhere across the room.

I'm thinking of making a "tray" for one of the shelves so storing odd bits of paper won't look so messy. Still thinking about it.


Only managed to sew up one DJ block this week: triangle RS-4. This was a fun one to make. It was super easy to PP in just two sections.
I chose a fabric that reads like a stripe and had fun turning it every-which-way-but-loose. I like how it turned out. It was fun to play for a change, and not be so serious.

Until next time. . . I'm not doing anything else tonight but holding and pampering my kitty. Right now Missy is in my lap just purring up a storm.

What are YOU up to?

Way to go on the great sale prices. Bargains are so fun. Simple paper pieced block with just 2 sections? Not everyone would call that an easy block. It turned out great.

Pretty block..love the fabric! Great deal on the cube Cyn! I have them for my paper crafting supplies and love how they help to keep things organized. So which Sizzix dies did you score as well??

Hi Cyn! GREAT YOU COULD BUY SO CHEAP!
I love it too when my workspace is organised and when it isn't I can't be that creative either. I always have to first clean up my desk before I can start working on something. I think this shelvie thingy will help you a great deal to be organised! And your tri looks lovely! I also made this one last week in pink plaids. Easy peasy it was! How many more do you have to go and make? Have a great time sewing! Big Hugs!
