I have been dreading this post... I did terrible last month but since I can't blog hop since I can't see my blogs (see last post) I figured I might as well bite the bullet and post lol. Within the first 3 days of April I knew I had blown it and by day 9 I was toast. I needed (I'm not kidding here) to buy a large package of quality black cardstock for the favours I am making for my wedding and I found this awesome online store this month that is based out of my province The Scrapbook Cafe . Not only does that help me a great deal keeping shipping costs down but it has amazing prices to begin with! Also if you order over $100 shipping is free (more reason to buy more right)? So even though I knew I was in trouble after the 9th day on the 22nd I headed back on over to the site to order my black cardstock. This may have been a mistake lol. Who was I kidding I was not going to buy just one thing! I was actually able to meet the lady that runs it. She lives about an hour away but was in my area and actually brought my first order closer for me to pick up so I could avoid the shipping costs altogether. She is an amazing woman who saw a need (lack of scrapbooking supplies available in NS for a reasonable price) and decided to do something about it! Boy, am I glad she did or wait after looking at my total for this month, am I lol. Either way I will be shopping from her store often I am sure!
