May's Craft Spending

Hi Everyone,
Well, I suppose it is well into June I might as well post this....I am starting to get a little discouraged with this whole trying not to spend on crafting because it seems I have a but more then an obsession... it is more like an addiciton *sigh*. 

I was so excited to have my first ever Stampin' Up party last month! It turned out I loved everything they sell and because of this I didn't do well again this month...

I did order a new stamp set from a new line that I am super excited about though. Justwordz is brand new and I can't wait until I have more time to play with the stamps! Kimberly from Justwordz makes the most amazing cards using her sentiments and I have already been getting a ton of inspiration from her blog, check it out!

In conclusion I didn't break my promise from last month about doing better (honestly, could I have done worse?! lol) but I still am not happy with the end totals so here is to June and a fresh start once again!

May 1 - Bargain Harley's $20.39
May 2 - Bugaboo Digital Stamps $2.93
May 15 - Stampin' Up $188.57
May 21 - Just Wordz Stamps $21.32
May 24 - Dollarama $2.30 (like I really needed anymore ribbon)!
Total - 235.51

That darn Stampin' Up! will get you every time! I got so addicted that I signed up to sell it! I went crazy with it, but I did meet some really nice crafty friends and I have an awesome supply of cardstock to show for it! I love that you do this each month! Good Luck with your June!

So sad but so true! I still have not calculated my costs since April... I know I should but I just can't!

Yes, I think we have all been there and done that. LOL! I tell myself the same thing every month and I just don't know what happens. Excitement and inspirations get in the way.

AS you know by my cards that I AM ADDICTED to STAMPIN' UP! So I hear ya when you say you got carried away. I ALWAYS do! :o) But I'm Ok with it! Some months I spend wayyy more and others not that much so you'll be ok... :o) I haven't bought any Stampin' Up Supplies in over a month and a half! Not trying to brag but to let you know that the time before that my bill was like $195 and I bought so much that I didn't need anything for awhile after that... So look at it that way... You spend the $188 now but the next month you won't need to order and your supplies will last a little longer! :o) That's my story and I'm sticking to it! LOL :o)

Thank you for sharing your struggles. I'm similar. Those Michaels & JoAnns coupons tempt me so much.
I'm so proud when I leave with one item only.
