Christmas Haul and Boxing Day Sales Haul

Well, I hope Santa found everyone this year and I hope you all got lots of crafty stuff! Below is a picture of my Christmas haul. I got the From my Kitchen cartridge which has been on my wish list forever! I got a laminator which has also been on that list for a very long time! (Maybe that is the teacher coming out in me) I also got a super slim slicer which I wanted to get one day when it was on clearance for $5 but Brian talked me out of it and funny how it turned up in my stocking! My aunt got me a really neat day by day calendar that has scrapbooking embellishments on each day of the year. I was super surprised to get the Big Bite. I have been thinking about getting a crop-a-dile for a while now. Apparently, Brian and my father went into Michael's (I would have loved to be a fly on the wall that day) and when they saw the bigger one decided to get me that one instead ( and their big obession) However, after researching it I am actually super happy I got this one! Brian was unsure what to get me for eyelets so he gave me a $25 gift cert. for Michael's to pick some out. I also, got another $25 one from my future in-laws. So guess what I did yesterday on the 25% off boxing day sale..... scroll down for more

In the picture below is what I got at Michael's yesterday! I used all my gift Cert. and an additional $13.43 but look at what I got! Below the picture I will list what I paid for each item. It was spectacular!

Christmas frame ornaments (red box, 2) $2.62 each
Clear plastic ornaments (4) .51 cents
Clear organizer (1) $5.62
Scalloped Chipboard Albums (6) .67 cents
White Chipboard Albums (12) .56 cents
Eyelets (5) $3.74
Brads (1) $3.74
Textured snow writer (1) $3.22
Snowflake rub ons (2) .85 cents
Calendar (1) .56 cents

Then I went to another local store called Rewards which has an awesome scrapbook section and got more eyelets and brads (I was actually disappointed in Michael's when I realized this store had then way cheaper! For example I got a pack of 100 coloured brads at Michael's for $3.74 on sale and a pack of 300 at Rewards for $2.99 at regular price. I guess I know where I will get getting them in the future! Below is a picture of both the ones at Michael's and the ones from Rewards. You can see the price stickers on the ones from Rewards.

So what did everyone else get? I can't wait to see some haul pictures and videos today!
Happy Crafting!
