I Love to Scrapbook, But. . .

I'm a bit frustrated right now. My yarn stash is dwindling as I work on a boatload of new ideas but it's National Scrapbooking Month at Michael's. This is the point in the conversation where my BFF would ask, "What's that got to do with the price of onions?" Well, I'll tell ya. Because it's national scrapbooking month, and bridal season, and the end of the school year, the only items on sale at Michael's are scrapbook supplies, frames, bridal crafts, and kids crafts.

Still not getting it? Yarn! I want yarn! I crave yarn! I. . .Need. . .YARN! But I'm cheap, far too cheap to pay full price even at Michael's. So I check the ad every week and cross my fingers and hope that one day soon I'll see my coveted Lily Sugar n' Cream or Caron Simply Soft at a price even lower than Michael's already low everyday prices. (sigh) Then perhaps I can again find my happy place and finish the many beautiful surprises I have in store for you, my dear customers and readers. Until then, happy scrapbooking.


  1. LOL A "40% off one item" coupon doesn't do me a whole lot of good when I usually buy 50 or more balls of yarn at a time. :)

  2. Hon, I have tons of 4ply worsted weight acrylic yarn I want to get rid of and you are welcome to it. All you have to do is pay for shipping. If interested pls. email me at


  3. Hey Barbara! I am so tempted, but what I really need is cotton. If you're open to it, though, I'll leave your comment here in case anyone else wants to take you up on the offer.
