i ♥ target

i ♥ target
Some people use gift cards to get things they need. Some people wait until they're shopping anyway to use 'em. Me? Gift cards burn a hole in my pocket. Upon recieving a giftcard I typically do not pass go and collect $200. I head straight to the store in question and purchase whatever meets my fancy- realistic or not. The last of my birthday celebrations was on Sunday (where I recieved a few different giftcards). Monday I went to Borders and got a blank journal which is turning into a garden journal (more on this later), two beautiful postcards, and a home decor book (I'll have to get back to you on the name Better Homes and Gardens' first home with style) that was on sale for less than $5! Tuesday I went to Barnes & Nobel where I purchased Denyse Schmidt Quilts, 30 Colorful Quilt and Patchwork Projects and the latest copy of Legacy. A super duper congratulations to Celine whose artwork is on the cover! Today I graced Target with my presense (ha ha ha *snort*). Above is the loot I came home with. Why does this store, like, cater to moi?

That's the best thing about gift cards...the total luxury of using them for whatever you feel your fun little self needs in that moment! What better way to celebrate the happy thoughts that accompanied the cards than to keep the happiness going by spoiling yourself?!
