It never ceases to amaze me the product obsessions I go through. Right now I am OBSESSED with word balloons.

I just saw these and want them. Won't buy them, though, because they don't have a die cut to match.
Talk Bubbles

I bought these stamps by Jillibean Soup. I made some cute cards from them.

I also bought this stamps set by Simple Stories. I figured I could use it on anything.

My favorite set is THIS set by Hero Arts. I also have the dies that match.

Then I bought two sets from Simon Says Stamp with matching dies!! I am crazy, aren't I?

So we should expect to see a lot of word bubbles on your lo's then?

My latest obssession is Washi tape. I would like to get my hands on some wood veneer shapes too.

When I went shopping with Lilly I bought more washi tape, a kraft paper pad, a storage container, a glass container for my washi tape, thickers, mist (I've never used mist), journaling cards, pockets, ink pads, and slick writers.

I seem to go in spurts when I buy scrapbooking supplies. I want to place an order here too. There is a lot on my wishlist. Mostly paper and cardstock embellishments.

LOL Nora! I don't tend to buy multiples, I'll admit. My version of a "product obsession" is when I love something, I research and worry and obsess over which I'll get the most use out of, and then finally buy it, probably weeks later. I've said before, I'm not very good at shopping.

Your speech bubbles are really cute though. I loved the one you sent in the package - I was really tempted! But then I made my own in Word, and cut it out for the NSD sketch challenge. I think that's my problem - I see other ways of doing things that don't cost time, money or storage space, so I do those instead.

Oh Rosey....you must have nerves of steel! Lol

I am a product junkie.

I'm in that competition for who has the most product wins I think!

Have not done a heap of shopping lately....actually I have but it has not arrived yet. It's amazing what you can buy on your iPhone when you are away from home and bored.

I like the word bubbles, but not exactly something I'm into right now.

Actually, not sure what my obsession is right now. Maybe all the new distressed papers?? I can't seem to get enough of them!

Unfortunately, my motto seems to be, "If one is good, ten is better!" Talk about obsessions ... I don't even want to admit how bad I am. I, too, love Washi tape, but love it to the extreme! No wonder I'm always broke! I'm retired and say my Social Security pays the bills, but I still work part time to support my scrapbooking habit!

how did you guess, Jael? I am going to post the challenges tomorrow. I tried all day to get on here today but something was not going right no my end. I am hoping when I am able to get on here in the afternoon (won't be around in the morning) that it will actually work!!

I hear you, darlawelch. I just signed up for SS after an unsuccessful 12 months of job searching after losing the job I'd held for twelve years, and the worry that is foremost in my mind is, "am I still going to be able to afford my scrapbooking and cardmaking obsession?" Not, will I be able to pay my mortgage and buy groceries!
