I knew it was coming.

I had heard all of the weather reports.

So, I thought..."I had better get all my errands run today because I may not be able to get out for a couple of days." Great thoughts and great intentions. So, where do I go? Well, Michael's of course!

I found a whole new section! It was in the back tucked away down a side aisle with a banner across the top declaring it $5 and under! WOW - cool scrappy stuff!

Everything here was $1 each!! And, there was more that I didn't get...All by Colorbok. $1 chipboard shaped books (scalloped square, circle & heart) , shaped papers, stickers, embellies, tags. I think I was on that one aisle for half an hour!
But, wait, there's more...(also by Colorbok) Crayola kid shaped chipboard books too. I got a car book, with car shaped papers too. (I forgot to get a pic before I dug into the goods!) They had a house, star and a "splotch" shape too. I'll just have to post my mini book when I'm finished with it.

But, I never made it to Kroger for some edible essentials! Oh well, we won't starve, and I won't be bored either!

Thanks for looking

Michaels had some big chipboard butterfly books. I bought them for our paperdoll project - for wings if anyone wants them. You got some cool stuff! Crafts are way more important than food in a snow storm!
