Where have you been all my life?  While everyone else has been aware of Michaels it has taken me this long to go into a store.

Now I am not particularly good at crafts. Maybe that’s why it never seemed like a place for me to shop. Was I ever wrong! Even The Frugal Diva can put a picture in a picture frame. And a very stylish one at that. Or pick out accessories to organize my desk, closet, or photos. Yes, now my magazines are stored in pretty baskets, candles grace my table tops, and plants have been moved to matching containers.

They have great invitations you can run on a home printer. Now I know where all those cute cards originate. Kids birthday parties are a snap with postcards.  Brides this is a great place to find save the date cards, invites, thank you notes, and response cards. Make them formal or keep them modern, there are so many choices.

And they give you tons of ideas on making things fancy for a shower or fun for a kids party. It took me hours to leave and the first thing I did at home was…you guessed it!  Signed up for their email discounts.  Now the coupons are coming and I’m planning my next trip with them in hand.  That’s my kind of crafty.
