My Scrapbook Finds


How has the weather been for you lately? It's been weird here. That's New England, though! One minute it's muggy and gross, the next minute is rainy, dreary and depressing. Today has been cold rainy and depressing. When I got out of work today it was pouring rain and I was in a blah mood.

I got out at an odd time, the same time Jacob was getting out of school. Since we only have one car I had to wait to get picked up. Waiting is not a big deal, I work in a mall.  Well, right outside my store there is a dollar store that everyone always goes to when we run out of supplies Not Dollar Tree, but a generic dollar store.  I wasn't sure what to expect because I had heard it was "junky", but what dollar store isn't? I was pleasantly surprised once I started looking. They actually had some pretty good stuff but best of all...

They had scrapbook stuff!! Not generic stuff. The real deal.  They had a whole wall of letter stickers and embellishments and they had a huge bin of scrapbook paper.  I would have looked more but I was carrying all my work stuff and they didn't have carts to hold anything, so I took what I could carry. Here's what I got.



Everything was $1!!! Even the pack of 25 12x12 sheets. Granted the packs contain only 1 pattern, but I think I can find some way to use them all differently. They had tons of paper, next time I'm working I'll have to check out what other patterned paper they have. I did see a few more that I liked but I was running out of arm space.

I love finding scrapbook stuff in unexpected places, especially when I can find such a good deal.
