I want to play!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Have you seen these at Michaels? They are called Vintage Findings from Making Memories. I started picking them up before school was out and I remember thinking to myself, "these will be fun to play with this summer!" Hmmmm....what was I thinking!!!???? Even while taking these pictures I must have heard "mommy" only about 3,458,983 times! But really, aren't they so neat!!??
This one is called, "mini travel kit". What I also love is that on the back they show a picture of what you can do with it."mini kit girl"And then there are these little packages of glassine envelopes, artisan labels, plain labels, stamps, tickets and much, much more!


Every morning when I wake up I say to myself, "no matter WHAT....today I am going to make something!!!!!!" Today I actually managed to take these out of the packages.
So in the meantime, I'll just keep looking at pretty millinery....

...and great old papers!

There's always tomorrow!

Hi.. I so know what you mean.. Every day I think this is the day to create.. Then I have my kids telling me "Take me here".. It has been a busy summer. I am ready to get back to schedules.. I saw those at Michael's too.. I was waiting till they went on sale.. I stare at my wonderful stuff everyday and just hope soon.. I can make something with it all.. Glad I am not the only one who feels this way.. Good Luck and have fun!

OK...see, this is why you and I, miles apart mind you...great minds think alike! LOL. Every time I go to the big "m" I buy one or two, so that I don't knowingly spend like about 100.00 on these things...LOL. But they are great aren't they? I can't wait to see what you make.

Aren't they awesome? I found it so hard to control myself!

Primchick said...

Ooo... you lucky girlies in the US..!! those kits look fab, to play with.
Big Booo... as it'll about a year to get 'em over here in the UK...!!
Looks like the makers of making memories have been spending time on etsy, these kits look very much like the ones peoples put together on there....
thanks for sharing, Marion ;0>

I work at Michaels as their floral designer, and I have walked by that vintage scrapbooking line and always forget to go back to buy some! Maybe today when I go in, I'll pick some up:) Looks like fun!

I saw those. Trying to resist....as, well, did you see my craft space I posted about. I would just have to "toss" it in the room and never find it!
