pretty purchases

yesterday, I finally got the chance to head up to Michaels to check out the Martha Stewart Craft collection. I have to admit, though there was a lot of really cool stuff, I was a little disappointed. maybe it’s because I was picturing aisles and aisles of crafty goodness. but anyway, I did find some very very amazing things: self-adhesive ribbon for packaging, great wrapping paper and tissue colors, and gorgeous eyelet note cards. I also found a great box, actually called a specimen box, that will perfectly display the recipe cards for my Grandmother. I plan to buy some pencils or colored pens to place inside the box next to the cards. it’s a perfect fit! and ok, ok….I didn’t buy the floral lace punch, though I saw it, and want it so badly. imagine all the little things you could make!!! I’d go punch crazy.
