SSsshhhhhh! Check out my New Things, but Please keep it a Secret!

SSssshhhh! I am not suppose to be buying any more "stuff". I have way to much and we really are broke, but, I had to get a few things. First though, I must thank my dear mailman. I lost the key to my mailbox on Saturday so I haven't been able to check the mail. I knew I was expecting some surprises and was getting very anxious. I left a note on the mailbox yesterday explaining that I lost my keys. (again!!) So today my sweet mailman delivered my mail to my door for me. Thank you Mr. Mailman for suppressing my anxiety attack!

The stuff in the top picture was free, so maybe it's okay, right? Except for the part that I already have "too much" paper. I won it on one of Mary Ann's giveaways from A Very Mary Design. So much fun to get something new!! Thank you Mary Ann! Then I bought a vintage apron pattern on Ebay (because you know there are 2 apron swaps coming up soon!) so I had to have that!! Then I bought these cute little flowers from Bibi Creations for something else I need, but I can't say what yet. Finally, I bought myself some business cards from Barbara at The Pettis Collection . So see, I'm sure you all understand why I needed all of this stuff, but my family, won't so please keep this a secret! Thanks and now it's time for my nap!!

My DIL made this up using the pictures of my 5 oldest boys. So funny!
