This year I was the recipient of several gift certificates of larger denominations, two for Amazon and one for JoAnn's. I took the opportunity to stock up on books (for the decade or maybe the millennium) and also picked up some craft supplies.
I have always done paper crafts, and have been a good customer to both Stampin Up and the stamp and paper sections at my local big box chains. By the time Miss E and Miss A were each three years old they were veteran Michaels shoppers. In fact Miss E had DH convinced she could read at three because she would say "oh, we're at Michaels" as soon as we pulled up to the store!
Because things come from various vendors when purchased at Amazon, I got packages on January 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, etc. I got buttons and knitting needles of the bamboo variety and a package of thread and sewing machine needles.
I got books
And a paper cutting machine:
