yeah or nay? I always shop when I am particularly stressed. My doctors appointment today was in a town that has an art store so I poked around before my appointment. I bought a bunch of Copic markers because they were on sale for $4.86 and a few items to try and make some of my own mist spray. I didn't need any of it!! But I don't care. It made me feel better.

Retail therapy..yes!!! It is nice to splurge once in awhile.

I wish I could say the same, but no, if I'm stressed when I buy things, I either end up leaving empty-handed or hating what I get.

I also don't like shopping for clothes with DH around. He does his best, but I can feel the waves of impatience radiating off him. He doesn't seem to mind scrappy things - that's funny. And he's had almost as much fun shopping for scrappy things for my birthday as I would have done.

Which Copic colours did you get? And have you had any success making your own mist?

I clean when i'm super stressed or super mad... that's when I purge and throw out things.

as for shopping you need the money first and I don't have extra to spend at this time so I don't spend. If I do then we have to go without something so I try not to spend unless I absolutely need to.

Sometimes. Even if it's ordering something off Amazon, it still provides the 'fix' LOL

Hmmm, if I'm stressed, I usually am not in the mood to shop, although, it would probably make me feel better if I did go out and splurge a little...

Sometimes but not clothes because i generally don't like what I picked out if I am not taking my time and in the mood to clothes shop!

I NEVER buy clothes when I am stressed!! Just scrappy things!!

Rosey-I got a bunch of colors. I am just "filling in" #'s that I don't have. No rhyme or reason. I had my book with me to tell me what I didn't have too. It was a splurge kind of thing-I bought more then I usually do. And like a dork, I bought two of the same color pen!! This is the SECOND time I have done this too!! I bought a bunch 6 months ago and bought a color I already had. I meant to buy one down from it.

I've done that too. That was when I started plugging all my colours into my phone - then lost the Note. So I made a card with all the colours and their numbers on, and took a photo of the card on my phone. That worked!

Then I came across this neat little app and have been using it ever since. http://www.hyliston.net/iphone/copic/app.htm

I still have the photo of the card as backup.

I like shopping for something for a pinterest idea or scrap whem stress gets me. It really helps. Clothing shopping just makes me more stressed.

I am a firm believer in retail therapy but I prefer to shop thrift stores, salvation army, habitat restores, I get such a high when I find a good find, like I want to scream it to the world...
