Ok so the other day I get an e-mail from a local scrapbook store letting us all know that they are going out of business. SO I think to myself sweeeeeeet sale! SO I got up this morning get dressed have a cup of coffee and head out the door at nine o'cloc. The store dosent open till 9:30 so I figured I would be really early. HAAAAAAHAAAAAA boy o boy was I wrong. There were already like 25 people in line. By the time they open the door at 9:30 there had to be 150 or more people in line. It was discusting. So I wait my turn to calmly walk into the door and bend down to get a basket and some psycho knocks me down. That mine she yells to get the basket. Hell if she needs it that badly then she can have it I only have a brused knee from it(lol).  SO I shop around get a few things and go to get ribbon. I wAITED IN THAT LINE FOR 45 mins. What the hell is wrong with me?The lady in front of us (for some reason I still do not know) felt the need to choose like 80 ribbons and get 5 yards of each one. Why in gods name to you need that much ribbon? I still don't know. (this is getting sicker by the moment...lol) So I get the little bit of ribbon that I wanted and headed to the line to check out. At this point I am told that I am in the short line to the check out. Sweet I think, so I wait......and I wait....and I wait....and I am still waiting, when I meet a wonderful lady names lori,. We are chatting and my friend Dana walkes in. Well she(lori) realizes that she knows dana from Here(cafemom) and I was like I am there too. Her screenname is wickedannabella. It was so nice to have nice ladies to caht with. At this moment in time we were there for 1 1/2 housr(in line only ) and barely moving. By the time we get to check out  we had all been in line for 4 hours. Just to leave that very hot store. My hubby was telling me that I need to be comitted....he thinks that i am sick and crazy. I can truly tell you that I have an addiction that I need help with. Only a basketcase would stand in line that long.  I hate shopping in crowds...but I had so much time invested that I just couldn't leave    Sick isn't it?

Yep we all should be commited! Totally insane for a discount! LOL Yep we sure are addicted to our crafts. Hence my dh knows better to question whatever I do. Yet think of the many things you can do. So go insane crafting like I hope to be doing by next week. (Craft room reorganization in process) But ya know what? When we do the things we do it makes us sane for we have something to keep us busy. Now imagine if we didnt? That would be totally insane huh? LOL
Enjoy your treasures.

Have a great day!:)

BWAHAHAHAHA!!!  You left out the part about the line winding around the store, around the counter and back up to where we were originally standing...and we shopped the ENTIRE WAY...bringing in new stuff, reconsidering on stuff we had...being a stock boy's nightmare. LOL!

It was so great meeting you and Dana!  I'm so glad I asked!  ;)

We'll have to spend a Sunday afternoon at Crop Paper Sissors before THEY go out of biz!

Talk to you soon!

Mar. 12, 2008 at 6:54 PM So how much off was it?  I have a store near me that has 40% off on one item almost every day and often 50% off on a Sat. or one day a week.  that is one item so I just go back and go back and go back.  But I don't tand in long lines.  they do send out coupons on computer so you can print off and they sometimes give coupons when you buy something. I handd out 3 coupons to people the other day and I had 5 of them to throw away at the end of the day.  We must have made 2 trips each for me and hubby and went for dinner and went back and made 2 trips more each.  Might hae saved only 50 cents once as if something is on sale and I didn't know it, then the coupon goes to cheaper item.  But did save $6 or $8 once, too.  I like to get Tombow refills if nothing else.  Only saves $2, but only costs me $2, too.  I go through that like water.  Is this what you call addicted?  Yep, then I am.
