Non-productive shopping . . .

Just a quickie tonight.  Went Christmas shopping (looking) today and I am wiped out!  Guess what I bought.  NOTHING!  Think it is going to be a lean Christmas at the She Dreams Big house this year!  Maybe it was just the day -- I wasn't impressed with anything I saw.  Nothing looked like it was worth the price tag.  Nothing new, nothing interesting.  And the toys -- maybe 15 minutes worth of fun.  Of course, what do you get a 3 year old that has EVERYTHING!  So . . . I came home and started to search the etsy stores for gifts!  Why did I even go shopping - found things so cute right here at my computer.  It is going to be a cyber Christmas! 

The Hobby Lobby store shelves were pretty well picked over already - on DECEMBER 1ST!  They were scrambling trying to move the merchandise all together in 2 aisles.  Crazy!  Guess everyone needed all new decorations this year!

Here is another giveaway worth checking out.  Lee at The Way I See It is feeling a little down because she is waiting to move and is lifting her spirits by being generous to others.  We all know how it feels to pack up everything and move, especially right before Christmas.  YUK!  Go see her!  And if you are a scrapbooker (or just like the pretty paper), head over to All Scrapbook Steals.  You won't believe their giveaway!  Funny girls Misty and her twin sister Angelique are celebrating their birthday at Six in One Hand and Six Divided By Two.  They will be picking 6 winners!  There are 6 sisters all together!  I always wished for just one!  One more -- Gretchen at Mimi-Toria's Designs has posted 100 times!  Her jewelry is what dreams are made of!  That's it - MUST STOP PLAYING ON COMPUTER!

Well, I have my jammies on and am going shopping!  Look out Capital One, I'm charging . . .

Hey Connie- thanks for the giveaway support. We have fun shopping for our 2 boys this year- they are so into John Deer and Tonka- it wasn't hard. But I totally know what you mean about shopping in general- it sucks. I do a lot of online shopping for that reason. You blog is looking fantastic too!
