Good News and Bad News!

The good news is that I got some really cool new things I hadn't seen before today at Scrapbook Expo...the BAD NEWS IS I SPENT TOO MUCH $MONEY$!!  My husband is so great because I came in...he said "Did you have fun?"  I said, "Yes it was so wonderful...crafting heaven...but I spent too much!"  He said (bless his heart), "Well, it's great you have such a passion for this!"  Isn't he the greatest?

So here is all what I hauled away....

But you want to know specifics, right? :)
So the first item is this:
A cute little plastic case for paint daubers.  We paper crafters love cute storage containers!
The next items are something I can't wait to try:

Two jars of embossing paste (one is clear and one is white), an applicator, some pigment inks, and some glitter.   You basically tape a stencil to a piece of paper, slap the paste on...let it dry and ink it up the way you want it.  I am sure it will be a huge mess when I get started but the demonstrator made it look oh so easy and oh so pretty!
Next up:

A set of stamps from Making Memories for $1.50!  I am always drawn to butterflies, dragonflies, and ladiebugs so I thought this was so cute!
Next up on my buying spree were these Spellbinders dies:

They had a promotional where you bought 3 you got one free.  I tried to pick up some I haven't seen at my local stores including those cute little file labels on the bottom left!

I got this punch/button maker...I got the flower shape. They are carrying these at Archiver's but this is my first one. It punches paper and adheres it to the epoxy shape and you have a custom button.  Too cute!

This case is a little ArtBin box that is deep enough to hold Stickles!  They sit right up in it...and like I said...we like cute containers.  Dan the Cricut Man said he is also coming out with a larger box that holds about double the Stickles that this one does.
Some pretty pink trim...can use it on layouts of N.B.G.
And then I got these...more Sew Easy heads:

Then I got a pretty shade of purple Distress Ink.

And then....
A container of Sparkly Fluff.  I was tempted to get more colors but decided to see if I use this first before investing in more!
And then....
A good sized bag of opaque black bling!  This whole bag was just $1.00!

And lastly I picked up some hair bow making doodads for N.B.G.

So it was fun but I'm exhausted from all the decision making!  I'm hoping to get to play with my new things tomorrow...we are going to my daughter and son-in-laws house to celebrate my husband's birthday tonight!

Happy Crafting!
