WOYWW - Been Shopping!!!

Hello everyone,
So its 2:30pm here and I've got the day off work. I got my hubby to take us for a drive to the nearest Kaisercraft outlet and OMG... I was in heaven. Can't believe such an awesome shop is less than an hour away. I spent less than $90AU and got all this:

Cannot get over the fact that there were 50 cent packs of epoxy brads, and $1 rub on sheets and so many other bargains. Next birthday, christmas, anniversary etc.. I want to go shopping there haha. I got a few new OTP projects to get started on, including a clock, a calender and a frame set. Also got some papers, paints, flowers, wood flourishes, alphas etc. So awesome!

Then I ducked over to spotlight, which is a big material/craft home maker type chain store here in Australia and this particular store was way better than my local one. So here's what I got there:

Amongst that is a canvas, cardstock, felt sheets, lots of chippie alphas and embellies, flowers, double sided tape etc. I had a voucher from my birthday from my sister so I got a big chuck of the price off.

Then I got home to a parcel from Pink Scrappers Boutique from the US. New Tim Holtz dies, & two spellbinders dies. I'm still waiting on a few other online purchases too so as you have probably guessed... I'm addicted to online shopping.

Oh and today I got something totally unrelated in my shopping splurge too... the wii Zumba workout. I've never tried Zumba so we'll see how it goes. Í'd never go to a class as the idea of dancing in public is a bit embarrassing haha but I have to prevent myself getting scrappers butt from sitting too much now that I've stopped going to the gym for a while. ;-)

Otherwise, the projects on my desk this week are a few challenge ones, including my guest DT spot at Scrappassion. So I can't show you that one. Not until May anyway! But here's another work in progress, since I really cant show you my desk. Its horrendous at the moment.

Have a great Wednesday everyone and thanks for your visits and comments. They are always appreciated! Don't forget to pop over to Julia's to see what WOYWW is all about!

Wow Holly you have had fun over there at Kaisercraft... loving the splurge items and the epoxy brads at $1 sounds awesome.. so agree with you re. online shopping. I have to put myself on bans constantly ie no more this month till bill comes in etc... but our dollar really encourages it, doesn't it?
Thanks for sharing Shaz in oz.x

Oooh, I LOVE spending sprees hehehehehehe It was fun shopping for the blog candy cos I had a reason to buy and it felt virtuous buying for someone else (though I did buy two of a couple of things because I wanted the same for me!) Thanks for stopping by....

I loooove Kaisercraft stuff and am so envious you have a store so close. We ony get a limited amount of products over here. Your spree looks wonderful.
My SIL goes to Zumba classes but I'd never heard of it until recently. She loves it and says they laugh so much it's hard to actually Zumba!!
Have fun
Hugs Lisax
