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.
