A couple of fun purchases :D

Of course I've been doing lots of Christmas shopping and sewing, but I've also snuck in a bit of shopping for myself - that's fun shopping!  Here are some recent (fun) purchases - NAYY!

Kismet Trinket Box pattern - I saw the announcement that Sara was going to be uploading a new pattern on her birthday, and as soon as I saw it I *had to have it* :D  And I did order it as soon as it went up, lol.  Check out the tester versions - WOW!   Here's a picture shamelessly stolen from her blog - Sara, I hope you don't mind :)  This part of the description (along with the price - $5US!) was what sold me:  "With minimal pieces to cut out and less than 20 sewing steps, these boxes come together quickly" :)

Kismet Trinket Boxes from Sew Sweetness :)

Yesterday I bought something fun - I went out for lunch with our oldest son, and we stopped @ Walmart to pick up a few things.  I bought these for ME :)  I bet you didn't know that Suddenly Sandra is a 12 year old boy, masquerading as a (54 year old) lady or a 54 year (old lady)  :D

Poop slippers :D

Same poop pictures, different angle, LOL!

I've also picked up a couple of craft books and a couple of DVDs ... this book is particularly lovely - I pre-ordered it in July, and it arrived last week :)  I can't resist that wonky kitty cat, and he'll be my first project :D

Cute & Clever Totes, by Mary Hertel

I know I'm not the only one using Christmas shopping as an excuse to grab goodies for myself - who else has done this, and what have you bought?  :D


  1. Love the wonky kitty - is it a tall tote - I couldn't get a sense of size. Looking forward to when you reveal.

  2. Oooh- I love those boxes! Thanks for the link xxxx. When the girls first had Saturday jobs we imposed a no-buying-for-yourself rule for the six weeks leading to Christmas ... and I'm now reminded of that each year so im not * allowed* to treat myself!

  3. That book is so right up your alley Sandra, can't wait to see what you make from it :)
    I like the look (and sound) of the trinket boxes too, will check out that pattern.

  4. Thanks for the link, I've just bought the pattern!!

  5. It sounds like you've been having fun! I love the trinket box picture. I'll look forward to seeing yours :)

  6. Had to have that trinket box pattern. I can see why you were smitten. All those tester versions further pushed me to the check out page. I thank you--probably not gonna get any thanks from my husband, though. I've been hit the buy button a bit much lately.

  7. I'm not sure how I missed this post! When you make some of those trinket boxes, let me know how they go. I'm sure you'll post about them when you do, but still.... :)
