I Had To...



I had to get more floral wire.


I had to get it today.


I had to get it at Michaels.


I was good and didn't buy anything. This time. I just got what I needed and took a little look-see. I like what Martha has to offer, but I think I am more excited about the packaging and color scheme, than the products themselves. That crazy Martha knows how to sell something and how to get the crafty community all in a tizzy.
I know that I'll buy her products because there will be time where it will just be easier, but when push comes to shove, I think I like getting my craft supplies online from independent retailers and other crafters. Of course, I say this now. We'll see how my resolve holds up the next time I'm standing in the ailse, salivating over glitter and glue....
*ps, thanks so much for all your encouragement for HP! I have my list all divided out by day and what needs to get done for that day, and I must say it has worked out nicely so far.

Thanks for the peek, I just didn't have time before my trip to check it out. By next week it will be all picked over at our Michaels. Anyway, have a good weekend! Can't wait to hear all about it. xo

I wasn't too excited over her offerings, surprised to say especially since K & Company was in the next aisle over - no comparison as far as I was concerned! but you are so right, she knows how to market.

Wow! You're STRONG! That packaging is yummy--love it! I haven't seen any of it in person yet...I'm steering clear of Michael's though..I know what would happen to my wallet if I went! lol

I totally did the guilt-ridden splurge thing with Martha's stuff at Michaels! So worth it!

Deifnately agree with you on that. The aisle looks great, but I don't knwo that the actual products are anything special.
