I had promised myself that I would pull out all my fall & Halloween decor last night, but I got something in the mail that I had been waiting for, so that derailed me for the evening. However, I have now re-promised myself that TONIGHT will be the night! Tadd and I stopped by JoAnn Fabrics on the way home from work yesterday and it was Halloween-palooza! They have some freakishly adorable Halloween stuff. I wasn’t as keen on their fall stuff this year, but they had one aisle where I seriously wanted to BUY ALL THE THINGS!
I bought a few items, but will probably go back for more. And I need to stop by Dollar Tree. Even though I REALLY don’t need anymore Halloween decor. I think I have a problem. I started shopping for this season hoping for more fall stuff and less Halloween, but for some reason I am always drawn to the Halloween stuff. Go figure…
I didn’t buy any of this stuff, but I wanted to!
I also bought some fall fabric, which I am HOPING to turn into something pretty. My idea is simple, but since I am still fairly new to sewing, I sometimes worry that constructing something very simple on my own (without a tutorial) will still conclude in failure. But I don’t know until I try, so I suppose we will see.
I bought about $54 worth of stuff, but only paid $18 out of pocket, thanks to my favorite shopping combo: sales + coupon + giftcard (I still had $10.78 left on one card from my birthday). Tadd was impressed with how much stuff we got for so little.
All that rambling to tell you that hopefully I will be able to share my new purchases, and some of my old items in new ways starting tomorrow! Bring on the fall decor!
