$1 bin treasures at Michaels...

I hadn't been to Michaels since early December (a new record I think) and their dollar bins are currently filled with some fabulous items right now.  If you are a Mary Engelbreit fan, just look at what's waiting to come home with you!!


Aren't these adorable mini kits?

Love the decorative clothespins too.

I picked up a bunch of these miniature paper flowers to use on a few of my Valentine crafting projects.

 Here's a sneak peek at what I did with some of the roses.

Donna and I have been paired with each other to decorate chocolate candy boxes and then fill the interior of the box with goodies.  I'll share more pictures of her special box  in the near future.

Have a thrifty crafty weekend, friends!

Oh Geez, now E and Sandy are gonna' make a run to Michaels.......LOL

I think this makes you a crafting enabler, or do you prefer co-conspirator? Can't wait to see your Valentine box and what you receive.

I'm off for three days of crafting/swapping fun.....have a great weekend.

Hugs,
Meri

Love those bins at Michaels! I try to be a good girl and only use my 50% off coupons on the largest item but all those little things just jump into my cart! ♥

Jboo said...

Haven't been there in a while too -- but it's on my list now!

Have a great weekend!

Donna said...

Wow, all those goodies are in the dollar section? I've always loved Mary Engelbreit, sounds like I'd better check it out!

Lynne said...

Love ME paper dolls. If the icy roads improve I may make a drive to GR. I have never been to a Michael's . . . which location is best . . .

craftyles said...

Wow-I love all the ME stuff. I haven't been to a craft store since before Xmas either-but I've been bogged down with this painting project. I can't wait for it to be finished. I'm sure you'll be making good use of all that cuteness!

Nellie said...

You certainly know the right places to shop for your craft bargains! What lovely creations you make, too! Have a good Friday, Kim. We are icy here today! xo Nellie

The little paperdoll papers would be so fun for crafting with! I'm trying to avoid Michaels, but I might have to go just for those.

Great finds at Michaels, my sister and I might do a run this evening! love to see more of Donna's special box! Have a crafty weekend.

Looks like a lovely heart for your partner!

Oh, I hope I get to go soon! I don't go to Michael's or Target very often but you always find the best stuff there! Enjoy your weekend! Stay warm!

Now I am really afraid to go there, Kim. I absolutely LOVE ME and all her stuff...and I don't need any more stuff!!! OMGosh- what a haul- xo Diana

Tammy's in Love said...

Aren't those buttons the cutest? I imagine you'll have some company in the craft room, it was 17 above today here. If it's comin' that way you're good for an hour of skating then some hot cocoa.

Ohhh That reminds me that I have a Michaels gift card to use up! I must get there!
Donna's Candy Box looks like it's darn cute! :)

Patti said...

Oh - I got some of the M.E. items, and I was just so excited to cross stitch those little cherries, it's been so long since I did something like that. I thought I might use the papers to cover a wooden bird house. Someone did that online - did you see it?

Lots of cute things! I got some cupcake liners and note cards last week. Have a great weekend! xo Heather

You are the best shopper!
What fun!
Adorably sweet Valentines!

I was just sitting here thinking of going to Hobby Lobby, but I think I'll go to Michael's instead.

Jenn "Rook No. 17" said...

So jealous! Looks like you scored at Michael's. All they've had in our clearance bins these past few weeks are some Thanksgiving odds and ends.
