It's Money Saving Monday and TGF announcement!

Happy Monday everyone! I hope your weekend went well and that you had time to do things that you enjoyed.
There's a lot of fun going on this week for me: the kiddos are home for 2 extra days, it's supposed to snow, AND I have a contest going on all week regarding The Greeting Farm. Every day from now until Friday I will post a question here regarding this wonderful stamp company. Answers can be found either in Marie's exclusive (okay, sorry - I couldn't resist) interview here OR somewhere on her website. Send all of your answers in ONE email to by Friday (midnight ET). All correct entries will be entered into a drawing for a free digi image of their choice! Then on Sunday, please join us as TGF celebrates its release party. More details coming soon...Each question will be posted at the very end of each blog entry.
And now for my find of the week:Look at the cool stuff Michaels is now carrying! (Okay, I really should call this "Michaels Savings Monday" but I really do shop at other places.)
They have a new section in their store that has really neat project ideas. I purchased the chipboard books (star and house) for $1 each and plan to alter them as teacher's gifts. They come attached with a jump ring (I was brainstorming with the stars which is why they aren't connected). The binder clips on the left are also a part of their new $1 section but the stamps that I purchased for DD (who wants to make her own Vday cards this year) was on clearance for 50 cents.
They were still unpacking the other merchandise although I did see fun b&w DP packs, coordinating embellishments, chipboard, paper buttons, and decoratively cut paper pieces. (By the way, this is not in the usual holiday $ bin area. Our Michaels has theirs set up in an entire aisle after the Wilton/baking section.)
And if you are looking for more CB folders to add to your collection, All That Scraps has many of them on clearance for $2.74. Christine has so many other items on sale as well, it's worth shopping in your pajamas!
I hope you all have a wonderful day, thank you for stopping by.
*Love and Aloha*
TGF Question of the day:
Which stamp or stamp set did Marie say was dear to her heart?

Wow - I need to go check out my Michael's. I feel like they haven't carried anything new in ages. Maybe they are finally getting new stuff in!
