Okay, i just have to come on here to brag about my friends.
to preface this, long story short. Me and my husband used to be very well off, Money, toys everything. when the economy crashed, we lost everything, 401k… house… EVERYTHING! and we have been struggling financially and are finally getting on track again, but really do not have alot of extra money for frivilous things…
I am a scrapbooker. I have learned to scour craigslist, clearance aisles, I get my flowers from the dollar store. I use all sorts of things in my scrapbooks that I didn’t think was possible, this is now how I get my supplies, plus my friends give me their extras and whatnot, and although I may not like it, or would have never used it before, I have found I can make ANYTHING work (out of necessity comes invention)…
so my friend Jenn texts me today and says she has an extra ticket to the Scrapbooking Convention coming up in a couple of weeks. THEN Stacy says she paid for me to go to a crop there on Saturday night! (this is something I could not afford otherwise).
the fact that my friends got together, and just did this for me is amazing! I am speachless.
anyhow, i just had to share how touched i am right now.
