What's A Woman To Do? Mini Blog Candy!!!

UPDATE: Ok...I want to make myself clear here since I've gotten emails if what I'm giving away as the candy is all the stuff that was pictured!!! Ahhhh...that's a BIG NO!!! LOL! What I am giving away, if you read the whole blog post, is some stuff made by moi! Here is what's being given as the candy: A coaster Post-It notes holder made with my BIA, an RSVP pen to match the holder, & a treat box made with my Scor-Pal. If I gave away MY loot...my husband would KILL me as I've spent a couple thousands of my crafting stuff. I wish I could give that away...but I'm not THAT crazy...lol.
Ok...this past month has been CRAZY!!! Ever since I got my tax return back...I have been one busy shopping girl! DUH...what else would I use my tax return on...groceries for the kids??? LMBO...OK...NO...I DO feed my kids so I only used half of my return on goodies for moi! What kind of mother would I be if I didn't feed my kids??? And what kind of stamper would I be if I didn't buy MY goodies? RIGHT? Anywho...I just wanted to share in pics some of my loot! This isn't even half of what I got. I got bunches of Bellas, Rubber Romance Divas...embellishments GALORE, CS, DP, and other good stuff. Here are my goodies! First is goodies from TAC and the other is from SU. Isn't this fun??? I'm so excited about my BIA and Scor-Pal!!!
So...what are you doing with your tax refund (if you're getting one/got one)? I will be sending the winning commenter a handmade by Gabby Coaster Post It holder, RSVP pen, and a project made using my newest toy...THE SCOR-PAL!!! I'll post the winner on Saturday, May 10th...my Mexican heritage Mother's Day! ;) Winner will be chosen at random by my DD. I will add your name to an altered paint can upon your entry and will pull out the winner! Good luck!!

You have been a busy shopper. My mentor, my hero!! :)

You lucky gal. I can't wait for my "stimulus" check - I'm going to feed the rubber stamping industry for sure!
Congrats on the loot!

Our money is already spent...paying off bills, covering sports expenses for the kids. Lucky ducky, you...I saved for three months and sold my Sizzix to buy some SU goodies! Have fun and can't wait to see what you do with it!

I would love to say that I am going to buy lots of stamping goodies with my tax refund, but unfortunately, my father in law passed away and had only a small life insurance policy, so the refund will go towards paying that bill. He was a wonderful man, so I am no begrudging in. Thanks for the candy. I am so anxious to see what you do with the BIA.

Wow. What a stash you bought there. I'd love to see the score-pal project. That way I have an excuse to buy one. Not that I really need one, but it helps. Thanks for sharing.

Woot! Yay for you :) If I get any refund, I'd treat hubby to a nice dinner and stash most of it in my savings account (after I buy some nice things for myself too) :P
Thanks for the sweet candy!

Oh, your stash of refund goodies for you looks like so much fun. You deserve it. I just ordered a cuttlebug knowing that a stimulus check is coming. I can't wait for it to come.

Hi, just found your blog. Love all the goodies. We don't get a refund:<(, we pay. So in effect I have donated to your stash, LOL!!! Our stimulus check is going for a cruise though.

Hey Gaby!! I'm so excited about "Mexican Mother's Day" too, I can't wait to see what my son will buy me. I'd like to stamp all day, but I'll be at Abuela's house. I spent my check already too and I did purchase some stuff for me! I purchased some Rubbernecker stamps, a ton of SU stamps and some CTMH one's. And some organizers. I have to get the scor pal with my Stimulant check!!! Can't wait.

Talk to you soon.

OOOOOOOO!!! Look at all those goodies! HOW FUN! We spent our tax refund in VEGAS baby! Lost most of it but was smart enough to leave some at home :)

Money spent, we have a new house so we have lots to buy.. Paint, Paint, Paint, did I mention Paint?

Lucky you, we don't get a stimulus check or a refund. My husband is in school, which means that I spend all of his student loan money on stamps! I really like your art it makes me want to get my stuff out and start creating... only problem is that my son is in there sleeping! Maybe I can be very quiet!

Marilyn said...

Blog candy sound wonderful - looks like you've had a ton of fun with your tax money - can't wait to see what projects you turn out with all this cute stuff!! Happy stamping!!

Cindy said...

With my rebate/refund I am going to take my adult children and their children to see our family in Maine. Haven't been able to do this ever and this year I have convinced them its time!

Anonymous said...

Not sure yet what we will do with the rebate check. We won't be getting that much so what ever we buy won't be big. Maybe we will use it to buy gas to get back to California. Looks like you will be having fun with all of your goodies.

Hey Gabby! What did I do with our tax return? Bought "stuff" of course! Fun stuff-wonderful buttons and bling from the Pink Hedgehog, Backgrounders and DP from Ellen Hutson, and a Basset Hound for my granddaughter!

Jailbird said...

well, I have to pay for my daughters college housing for next year, but I'm also going to grab a few more sets of the nestabilities.

Hey Gabby! Your hand-made items are gorgeous! How lucky for you to get all of those stampin' goodies! My tax return went towards bills. Sniff. Oh well. I regularly feed my addiction.
