Trading ATC's and Retail Therapy

Ok, the ATC's in the first pic is what I created this morning. The bottom pic is what I traded for at the art store today. Very fun and cool as the girl that works there was excited that SOMEBODY actually wants to trade, so I must get busy and make more.
Now on to the retail therapy. A very large church in Motown had a zillion yard sales today. They have one every year and tons of folks bring their stuff and have a yard sale. There were at least 50 different yards sales in the parking lot. So one stop yard sailing for me!! I didn't actually buy too much. No scrapbook stuff. Rats!!
Then I went to the bad place.............Beverly's Craft store, and again I didn't buy anything BUT they always have an on going sidewalk sale and today they put out these crop tote scrapbook carry cases. They are black canvas for $10.00, or for 15.00 I could get black faux leather one. I actually walked away, but I don't know how long I can stay away. I really think I could get a hell of a lot of journaling stuff in one of those, so I wouldn't have to take so many bags with me when I travel with my journaling stuff. I swear I make 3 to 4 trips back and forth to the car when I arrive at the Hotel and when I leave the hotel to come home!!!!
I am the bag lady!!!!!!!!!!
Hope ya'll are having a artful weekend!!

I like the atc's you're making. We are definitely going to have to trade. I have some stamps for you when I see you on Thurs.

Great ATC's and great trade you made! I know what you mean about retail therapy - it's so hard to walk away isn't it?
