$1.99 - really??? Shudayra's journal

Today was grocery shopping day and we also managed to 'hit' the Value Village second-hand store.
Nothing exciting about that - except for I spent ONLY $1.99 for all this:

Initially I noticed the package of 4 colours of DMC Jewel Effects and promptly grabbed the bag off the shelf. It wasn't until I got it home that I realized what I thought was ordinary embroidery floss was really
Lavender & Lace needlepaints Egyptian 100% Cotton!!
I scored with that one!!
As promised, here are some photos of the pages in Shudayra's journal.

The Front Cover

Don't forget you can click on the pictures to make them larger!
We've had rain and a break in the extreme heat - YES!!


  1. What a bargain! Now, why can't I find stuff that cheap and good at my value village. Of course, I never think to look for floss, but the jewelry is at least $3.99. LOL! BTW, Shudayra's journal is very special, as is the piece itself. Do you have a special place for it in your home? The mantlepiece, perhaps?

  2. Love it when there's good deals out there. What a find you made.
    Love Shudayra's journal. I love the cover you made for it.

  7. What's this?! Nope. No way! You got to be pulling my whiskers! Or maybe Cosmos' whiskers! You certainly did get some kind of a good deal!!! I always like when "she" gets a good deal....means more $ for snacks for me! Ah, life is good, eh Cosmos?!


    Romeo and "her"

  8. I got my winnings today, MA. Thanks - I'll put it to good use in art journaling. My word verication is "getted" - like "I getted my stuff in the mail today!"


Thank you so much for leaving comments! I appreciate you taking the time out of your busy life to talk to me. It's wonderful to know that someone is actually reading my mumblings and even more fun if I can connect with you and visit your blog.
