October Afternoon: “Santa’s Sack Sale”

What a nice way to start your morning. I sit down at the computer with my cawfee, open up the 2peas scrapping board, and the first post I see is THIS ONE.

My first reaction was, of course, …. YEAH – HOOOOOOEY!

Because I {heart} OCTOBER AFTERNOON. They’re my favorite company lately and I’ve been buying up their lines, new and old. I checked out the LINK to the OA blog where the details of the Santa’s Sack Sale are given. Huh … $39.99 is a GREAT price. They’ll flat rate ship, and even ship internationally which a lot of US scrapbook companies won’t do.

Then comes the internal dialogue: “Should I do it? Should I do it? Huh? Huh? Can I afford it? How much is in Paypal account? Wonder how much of the new lines would come with it?” The enabling voice in my head blathered on like that for quite a bit (could it be the cawfee?).

Well, ultimately, I think I’m going to pass, for these reasons:

– I need another mini album like I need another donut. Which is to say, I don’t.
– I already own most of their papers, excepting the 3 new lines (yeah, I’m a paper ho and I admit it)
– The cards aren’t really my thing. Of the few packs I’ve gotten in kits, I see using only 1 or 2 of them.
– I like their 12×12 alphabet stickers but I really *love* the Mini Market Alphas. They don’t specify which type of alphas you’ll get.

I think the smarter thing for me to do would be to spend that $40 on buying exactly what I want from their 3 new lines, which I haven’t purchased yet. {Okay, you’ve GOT to give me propers for finding a way to justify spending money on new OA by virtue of NOT spending on the OA grab box. I keep telling you people, I’m the Master}.

I have to admit, I’ll miss being included in the “scrapbook frenzy” this sale is sure to cause. I’ll miss getting the box, inhaling it’s lovely scent, and taking pics to share with you bloggy peeps.

But I’ll live vicariously through you, k? I think *you* should order the box. Then show me pics when you get it. Deal?

    Lol, isn’t it funny how we all like different things. I love OA also, but one of my favorite things is the cards. I hope I get lots of them in my box :)

    I like this deal. Sounds like a good plan to me. I’ll scoop some up.

  3. Hi, I honestly don’t do scrapbooking but I admire the people who does it. I think it requires creativity, courage to mix-and-match, and diligence. But as I get older now & the kids growing bigger, I look at the old photos and know that some of them should be kept in a special place – that’s when I wished I could do scrapbooking. Some memories are too special to be kept merely in simple albums. Surfing through scrapbooking blogs, I suspect there are not many men out there who does it – are there?
