I'm A Baaaaad Girl



Yes, I bought from Papertrey last night. I showed up right at 9:00 and the site promptly crashed. I guess we were a little excited, all bamillion of us. I tried so, so hard and never did get a chance to see the tins, boxes & bags last night. The images weren't showing up. I saw them today, tho. Cute! So I just got the stuff I had to have - some stamp sets, some punches that were back in stock. I thought I'd wait (gasp!) on the new stamp sets. Don't get me wrong, I totally want them, but I want to first see what other people do with them. I'll probably get them next if Nichole does indeed to do Christmas stamps next month, like she hinted at last night on Splitcoast before the actual launch. It was a "blink and you missed it" hint, because the room was crazy! But yay to Nichole for hanging out with us and for her awesome new release.

Ok, here comes the bad part. I also ordered from SU! on Monday, knowing darn good well that Papertrey was releasing fun new stuff on Tuesday night. I think I may have some sort of impulse issues. Or zero self-control. I'm undecided. Ooh, it could be both. I'm sure Shawn's vote is for both. But the only reason I ordered so close together is because I had been tweaking my SU! order for about 2 weeks, and finally got it just right. And once I was convinced it was just right, I had to do it quickly before I thought of something else I "needed". And wouldn't you know it, 2 days later I realized some stuff I left out. Eh, I'll just tack it to my next list. See? It's neverending. Yes, there's definitely some issues there. But it's not my fault. I mean, with Papertrey releasing new stuff every month, and now SU! having 2 catalogs a year, not to mention the mini's...Ok. I see your point. Ahem. Hi, my name is Mint and I'm addicted to stamps. Uh, don't get the wrong idea here. I'm not looking for help, I'm just admitting I have a problem. And from what I hear, that's the first step. Yeah, one step works for me.

Stamp: Love Matters (SU!), Ink: Certainly Celery (SU!), Paper: Whisper White, Certainly Celery CS & DS, Night of Navy (all SU!), Accessories: Certainly Celery ribbon (SU!), clear embossing powder (SU!), eyelets (making memories), Cricut flowers

Another pretty card. Good for you on placing your orders. I love Papertrey and am anxious to see what holiday stamps they release next month!

The true sign of someone addicted to stamps is the RATIONALIZING baby, and you do it in spades here! But that's ok, you've joined the club. And it's important to belong to clubs, isn't it? It's good for the psyche, I say! I held off on the PTI stamps cuz I'm not a big Halloween girl (but the candy is good), but all the fun tins and bags are tempting. I think I'll go check it out right now. Hugs to you today Mint. I'm glad you're getting some traffic here now!
