Hoarding. In General.

Tonight. It hit me. I think I must need some sort of Intervention. Or perhaps I should volunteer to be on the show, Hoarders.

I went to Michaels tonight specifically to pick up some Harley Davidson stickers to make my SIL a card for her birthday. She is in to that stuff. They did not have any at my little store, and told me I'd have to go to one of the larger stores that carry more inventory. One would think I could have just walked out. Nope. I had to check out what was on SALE. I had to browse! I had to go directly to the Martha Stewart section...because I love her crafts! Then, I had to check out the little dollar bins. Oh...and just for good measure...scrapbook paper was on sale four for ONE dollar!! How on earth could I pass THAT up??

So, I managed to fill up a small basket full of know...they were on SALE! Then, I get into a discussion with the woman at the register. Told her I think I should just volunteer for the show Hoarders. She laughed, and said...anyone who is in to papercrafts of ANY kind...qualifies for that show!

I didn't feel so bad after that!

And for today's pics of the ya go!

OH! And we were featured!!!

As long as we can find you underneath all the Michaels supplies, then I think you are good. We have a problem when you are raising your hand from underneath all that stuff and we only see your fingertips! LOL! Happy Thursday! Good looking pic of everyone in the door!

Tsk Tsk Tsk.

I also can't help walk in a big store with stuff like arts & crafts or even the home store and not pick up something on sale even though I had planned to buy something different.

You're not alone. If you join Hoarders, kindly give me your "referral code" LOL ^_^.

Huggies and Cheese,

Woof! Woof! My mom LOVES MIchael's too. She has a good self control ... n buys only what she needs for a project. She always says things will go on sale again. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

I think my mom would qualify for that show too. You should see all the plastic crates of yarn she has stacked up all over the place.


CrystalChick said...

If you could see my paper pile you would know I'm in the running for the show too! haha Actually, I have some V cards going up on my blog later, maybe I'll get a pic of some other things in the craft room and include them too. How fast can I clean up in there??? ;)
I do have Harley paper but no stickers.
Love the picture of the girlz!!

Well it was on sale, how could you resist? MOM does that when she goes into a pet type store for one or two items and we come out with 10 or 12. I'm sure I had nothing to do with it by putting items in the basket.

I am not a hoarder - I purge constantly but still manage to have too much. Shoes for example- too many of those!!

Cute pics of the pups!

Ron said...

I LOVE going into a Michaels!

However, like you, I end up going in for ONE thing, only to come out with 20 things!

I'm the same way in Target!

Adorable photos of the girlz!

Happy Thursday, Jeanne!

Kolchak Puggle said...

That happens to me every single time I go to that place. I come home with "just a few things". It's terrible, really.

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

It was on sale, right? Then it doesn't count. That's what we tell momma when we are in the pet store and good treats are on sale!

And girls, you look on Bailey's Blog!

Ann said...

you've just described every visit I ever make to the craft stores. If I go for something specific and they don't have it I just feel like it would be rude not to buy I think I should be on hoarders too

My mama goes crazy when it comes to sales too. The girls are adorable.

Michael's is a dangerous place! You should only ever go in there with a friend who can make you say no. On the other hand, I'll bet you are gonna have fun making things. Have fun!

Scrappy said...

That store can be LIKE that! My mom has to AVOID it completely. Costco too. It's dangerous. BOL

Teddy Bear said...

Our Mommy says she loves Michael's too. We hope to see all your wonderful craftsmade from the goodies via Michael's.:)

We understand! Mom went to the fabric store to get a needle for her new-used sewing machine and came home with $95. worth of buttons and sewing trinkets...BOL
(she barely knows how to sew!)

I know what you mean, I'm the same way. I meet people all the time that say that they only bring something new in the house when they throw something out!!! Can you believe it? That's something I can't even understand. I love Michaels, JoAnns and Hobby Lobby. I have to be very careful when I go in there. Congrats on being featured! I went there and checked you precious little girls out. So cute.
