My MIL Went to the U.S. and Here Are What She Brought Me

My mom-in-law was in New York and L.A. for two weeks recently to attend the graduation of her second son from grad school and for some R&R. I immediately seized the opportunity to use her as my personal courier. I ordered some items online and had them shipped to our family friend in L.A. so she can bring them back with her. She arrived last Sunday night. I was never more excited to pick someone from the airport than I did her. :-)

Here's what's in my box:

Scrapbooking books from my younger brother, Nani.


Acrylic stamps from college roommate, Mitch.


DCWV paper packs and corner adorner stamp from my sister Marissa.


Cuttlebug, dies and embossing folders and PC Silent Setter from our family friend.


Two pairs of loafers from my MIL.


Making Memories books from www.thescrapbookclub.com - $21.63
Autumn Leaves and Sassafrass Lass stamps, American Craft rub-ons from www.amillionlittlethings.com - $97.78
Paper stacks from www.joanns.com - $47.98
Cuttlebug machine and accessories from www.creativexpress.com - $160.87
Using other people's credit cards - PRICELESS

I can't wait to play with my new toys. Now if I could only find the time between child care, homeworks and house work, I would be one happy scrappy mommy.

wow...cool new toys! i love that listing of expenses and putting "priceless" at the end -- mastercard? i planned to do that sa blog ko about the garage sale, kaso nakalimutan ko, naalala ko na lang nung na-post ko na, tinamad na ako i-edit. hehehehe...

yung blog ko may sira, i cannot put a title in my entry. bakit kaya?

anyway, i miss you na!

Wow Lee!! Daming goodies! Heehee! Oh no I hope you don't have the set of flourishes I bought you. It's Rhonna Farrer's "Elegant Flourishes" and so far hindi ko naman nakita sa pic.. hehe!

And I'm not sure if I can go to the EB kasi I have to be somewhere on Sunday.. :( - CH

Jenn - kelan ka pasyal sa bahay - scrap tayo! Christine, di pa din kita mapapantayan sa dami ng stuff. Not that I'm aiming to have as much stuff as you. Baka itakwil ako ng asawa ko. Haha. CH, nope, I made sure I didn't order swirls or flourishes cause that's what I asked you to get. Was looking forward to your stories sa EB. Maybe we could get together some other time? Thank much.
