A Little Friday Enabling

Happy Friday!

In case you haven’t done any online ordering at Joann’s recently, I wanted to share that they seem to be getting new items regularly again. I’m not sure if they go through different buyers frequently or not. For a long time they had nothing new, nothing I was interested in. But at the moment, they are getting in a lot of last summer’s lines and embellishments from all the popular manufacturers.

Here’s a recent order:

Lots of new Thickers from recent lines, more wood veneer, embellishment and die cut packs from all of American Crafts brands, tons of the Candi Dots that I’m starting to see pop up in kit club kits, buttons from October Afternoon, printed bags from Webster’s Pages, embellishments from Doodlebug, tons of washi tape… On and on it goes.

I personally do not mind that these are not from the “latest” collections. It can take me years to finally put paper collections to use so being able to pick up some of these things now — when I couldn’t get them when the collections were hot — makes me happy.

Just thought I would share in case you hadn’t looked at Joann.com lately. I don’t have a local scrapbook store so I have to shop online. It’s definitely worth a second look!

How are you doing with all of your holiday preparations? My condo is decorated, the tree is up and most of the shopping is done. This weekend I’ll be doing a little baking and wrapping all the presents. And to all it effects, stay safe and warm with all the wintry weather out there!

Hope you have a fabulous weekend.

Thanks for stopping by today!


  1. Looks like a lot of fun goodies!
    I have to say as far as Christmas goes, well most of my shopping is done.
    We haven’t decorated yet though and this is pretty late for us.
    Hoping to get to it this weekend.
    I usually bake closer to the actual day, so maybe sometime next weekend.

    What I really wanted to do was see some of the special activities around town.
    Like the lights at the zoo or the candle walk at a local historical site.
    There are a lot of fun “holiday” activities and we just haven’t been able to get to those yet either!
    We are supposed to have a wintry mix and snow over night, and that happened right before last weekend, too. Makes it not so fun to go out.

  2. I just started scrapbooking within this last yr and I just bought stuff at Michael’s and Joanns. I had no idea there were collections. I just bought supplies and papers as I liked them. I don’t have any scrapbook only stores either. Then I started looking around online and there are so many nice collections and blogs showing everything. It’s as if a whole new world’s been opened for me. Thanks for showing your haul I love it all. Have fun with it. Michelle t.

  3. I haven’t done much online shopping lately – what a great package you have there. I picked up some wood veneers yesterday at our LSS. I’m really not concerned with when a product came out as long as I like it, too.

  4. I’ve only ordered from JoAnn’s once, but was really happy with them! I wonder if they have any of this in the store? I’m loving those printed bags!! I don’t mind if things are the latest collections either. Seems like they come out so fast anymore I can’t keep up anymore 🙂 We are all decorated, all shopped and all wrapped. Girls and I are going to bake cookies next Saturday.
