Martha Stewart sale

Em and I went a little nuts in the Martha Stewart section of Michael's last night. I came home with several things I've been eyeing, but hadn't been willing to shell out for yet. Oh, the difference a 30% discount makes. It's funny how different percentages have such a big psychological impact. A 10% discount wouldn't get me out of the house, and a 50% would have sent me on a shopping rampage.

A 30% discount gets me this, apparently:
A ribbon dispenser box
This pretty ribbon in a couple of shades

Goodie boxes that will jazz up homemade Christmas candy gifts

Goodie bags -ditto

The sale runs until the 20th, so you've still got a day to hit it up. I guess technically these aren't necessary purchases, but I do so love good packaging and last year I didn't think ahead and was forced to try to make saran wrap look classy. Not an easy task, by the way, and certainly disappointing after I spent hours icing over sized gingerbread cookies to perfection.

  8. I love all her packaging items too. It's such an easy Christmas gift for food, and looks so pretty. One year I did a roasted/sugared nut mixture and it was so great to give out.
