Retail Therapy or Economy Stimulus Plan

What do you do when you are having a creative slump? I decided to multi-task and do some retail therapy and stimulate the economy at the same time. I've been checking out these punches from the Martha Stewart line for a long time so with coupons (you can download 50% coupons) in hand I went in a got all of them. We all know how to play the coupon game so no need for me to explain how I got all of them in one day. The holiday ones on the right are 30% off right now and they still had all of them in stock. I did have a little sticker shock with the elephant punch (retails for $12.99) but once I punched it out and saw was it did - a card idea popped in my head. Retail therapy really does work!
Another craft world trivia update. Cuttlebug didn't make it clear to all the store owners that the holiday embossing folders (Halloween and Christmas) was a limited run and are now discontinued. So if you've been holding off getting any of them, better buy them when you see them. And if anyone from Cuttlebug is reading this - Are you nuts to discontinue your holiday line one month before Thanksgiving? You are so on Santa's naughty list this year!

Are you looking for any of the Cuttlebug holiday folders in particular? I got carried away and ended up with a couple of duplicates! I'm thinking of using them for trades.

Yes, I'm looking for the "ornament" folder.

Let me know if you have one!
