Scored some loot Black Friday shopping!!!!

Ok. I must fess up right away.. typically, the idea is to shop on Black Friday for people on your gift list. well, I went out with my own agenda to get some Christmas presents for me... but some items landed in my cart for others so it wasn't all bad.. lol.... =) I only wanted to go to 3 places, all with crafty thoughts in mind. Joann's, Michael's, and my LSS Scrapbooks Galore and More.

I got up at 6:15am this morning to start my bargain hunting. My first stop was Joann's. If I could score one item, I wanted it to be the Sizzix holiday dies that were 75% off. I wasn't sure what dies they would be so you could imagine the excitement when I noticed they were the Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses dies and texture plates.. swoon. =) I was bad, got 4 Bigs and 4 texture plates. You know what is so awesome about it??? I got 4 for the price of 1.. you heard that right. I paid 29.99 for 4 Bigz dies and 15.99 for 4 texture plates. I was so happy.. the rest of the items I bought on sale were just bonus. I wouldn't have cared if they were out of everything else I wanted.

Here are some pictures of my Joann's loot.

 Then after Joann's, I went to Michael's. I was disappointed in the deals. You couldn't use your 25% off coupon on hardly any of the good deals. I did end up getting a few spools of Christmas ribbon(70% off), and some Iris storage boxes. I should have gotten more of these, for less than $3.. overall though, Michael's was not that great for Black Friday deals.
and lastly, I went to my LSS. They were having Black Friday deals too. I ended up getting some cute MME papers, another Tim Holtz Holiday die, a cricut snowflake cartridge, and the stamp spinner I've been wanting. and some $1 deals too.

So, lots of new scrappy goodies to love. I plan on doing most of the rest of my Christmas shopping online. Makes life a lot easier that way. I've done a lot of shopping on Etsy lately. I love it there. So many cute homemade things.
Did anyone else go Black Friday shopping????
