ME? Well, My name is Yvonne and I am a SAHM to FOUR beautiful, energetic, wild, lovable, crazy and amazing children. I am married to my best friend and the Love of my life. And I have a creative side that needed an outlet so I started this blog to share my creations with all of you. One day my oldest daughter, all of 6 years old, looked at me while I was crafting and said "you sure are One Creative Momma" and the name for my blog was born.

Michaels Haul!!!

Hello my bloggy friends! I just got back from a Michaels shopping trip where I spent all my Christmas gift cards and this is what I got!!! Everything was on sale except the small cello gift bag. :)

If I add up everything at original prices and add tax this would have cost me $220


This is what I got:
Cricut Cartridge storage box
Recollections desk organizer with wire rack extention
12 x 12 paper storage box
8 1/2 x 11 paper packs
Cuttle bug folder sets
fabric cube storage drawer
Chip board mini albums
6 x 6 paper packs
Ribbon packs
Pencil top erasers
and a cello gift wrapping bag

These were the discounts I received:
Cuttlebug folders were on sale at 40% off
Paper packs and Storage items were 50% off
The chipboard mini albums, small paper packs and ribbon were 40-70% off
20% entire purchase today

So my total after taxes was $96.29 of which I had $95 worth of gift cards!!! Not a bad haul for only $1.29 out of pocket. :) Now I'm off to organize my craft space. 

Pictures of my completed craft room are coming soon!!!


  1. Nice Haul!!  Love those bargins!

  2. Wow, you did great!! I need that wire stand!

  3. Wow! I like a good deal, but I love a great deal. Have fun.

  4. That's amazing!  I love sales, and you did some great bargain shopping for some great stuff!

  5. Fabulous Christmas Loot! :) 

  6. Great deal! Looks like some fun things!! 

  7. Wow!! That is a great haul for sure!!

  8. Thank you for participating in Pink Cricut's Link Up Party today!  I had a similar day of savings recently too.  I think I got $119 for only $21 after my coupons, rewards, etc.  GO US!

  9. You did Amazing!!! Love your loot. If you ever get a chance can you post a picture of the recollections spinner with your stuff on it? I have never seen that before. I have the clip it up but they are expensive and could definitely use another one and this may be the perfect alternative :-) I would love to see how it looks all set up. Was it expensive? I need to go shopping with you. lol! TFS!!! -Sam :-)

  10. Congrats on your haul!  Thanks for sharing. Stopping by from the Pink Cricut Linky Party! I'm a new follower.

  11. Here is a photo of the rack and desk organizer I purchased at Michaels. Originally it would have cost me $80 plus tax but everything was 50% off and I got another 20% off.  So in total it was $32 +tax. The wire rack can stand alone and was $29.99 originally but if you want it to spin you need to have the desk organizer. Hope this helps! :)

  12. Congrats on your haul! Don't you just love sales and gift cards! LOL I do...
