This is an archived posting from my previous website “Chips Antidotal Wanderings” – a personal blog about family, creative moments, and pain management activities in my life. That blog was active from 2004-2011.

I ran off to the “Dollar Tree” store yesterday. Looking for a few new things to alter. I was in search of some large-piece puzzles with 10-12 pieces to them. No luck with that. All they had were 100+ piece puzzles.

But I did find some other wonderful little goodies to play with. Of course I couldn’t say no to some of the stickers and scrapbook papers. I especially like the puffy frame stickers I threw in the basket. I’ve already got ideas for them in one of my altered books and on some CD’s I plan to alter this month too.

I picked up 4 rolls of wrapping paper with wonderful little fairie designs on them. They are perfect for so many of my collage projects! I have two circle journals sitting on my work bench now – both happen to have garden themes. So guess what’s being used in them?!

I spotted a few other things like journals and tins too, and I even managed to pick up a few trinkets for valentine gifts in February.

Best of all, I only put a $35 dent in the checkbook! An unheard of all time low for me when it comes to the dollar store. 🙂 LOL I rarely get out of that store for less than $50. But with over 30 new finds, I have lots of new toys to play with in my art studio!

Happy Camper am I.
