Why, why, why did I do it…

why did I click that link to scrapbooks.com yesterday…why! Because I’m like a big stupid moth to a flame when it comes to cool scrapbook stuff that’s why. I still can’t believe I shopped yesterday…I am have major day after regrets….you know that kick in the ass feeling after the shopping high wears off.  I mean really what was I thinking…I just spent money at the LSS last month and I have CKC at the end of this month so why oh why did I have to spend money…I should be saving every penny for CKC.   I had no intention of shopping yesterday…none whatsoever…I’m not even an online shopper…I am touchy feely shopper so I prefer the old fashioned brick and mortar stores. But yesterday I got sucked in big time. It all started innocently enough…I was blog hopping…while blog hopping I found this super cute project on lolly’s blog …totally loved it…she used a sizzix lilac die to make it…which I don’t have…so lucky for me she was kind enough to include a link for the die which was available at Scrapbooks.com and so like a complete and utter moh-ron I clicked the link and BAM…just like that …trouble. I mean really how stupid was I yesterday…I knew it was online store…I knew I shouldn’t spend money but I clicked all the same. I just wanted to look…what’s the harm in looking right. Well I looked at the die and I really wanted it and the counter said only 2 left…so like a trout with a wiggly worm in front of it…I took the bait. Right into my cart it went. Of course I could have just checked out but no…that would involve using brain cells …which apparently confronted by my shopping rush …decided to take a vacation. So I click on the “new products” tab and begin to browse. And that’s all I was doing right up until I found the new EK Success compact border punches. As soon as I found those I was doomed. I put 5 in my cart. YIKES! If that wasn’t bad enough I kept shopping…found some Jenni Bowlin and Crate Paper stuff I just had to have…more clickety click. Finally decided enough was enough…not because I was done shopping…but because it was almost time to go home…and yes…I was shopping at work…I know…tsk tsk. So anyways I finish shopping and go to check out and my total was over $100…OMG! So now I do some more clickety click and start deleting some stuff…including 3 punches 😦 . I did manage to get my total down to a more respectable number but I was still shaking my head…of course all the while I’m shaking my head I was getting out my credit card….funny how that goes. So I hit the send button and that was that…so now I sit here…feeling the dreaded shopper’s remorse….and I don’t have my scrappy goodness in hand to console me…sure hope that UPS man hurries up.

    All I have to say is, “Can I borrow the border punches you got?”


    Been there; done that.
