JoAnn Sale

I got an email from JoAnn's regarding their current sale. If you shop online with them it is well worth signing up for their online notices. The current offer includes free shipping for an order over $40.

If you are looking for discounted knitting and crochet books, the current sale offers 40% off. I noticed a few are not discounted, but many of my favorites are and they are going quick. I already found an afghan book gone before I could get the discount. If you are interested I suggest you buy quickly.

Yarn is 25% off. If you can combine your free shipping code with the yarn this is a great offer. I have a couple of items I need to stock up on so I need to check my budget.

Post Easter Shopping

I try to get out after each holiday and stock up during the after holiday sales for next year. I thought I had missed my opportunity this year. We had a busy Easter and then I never got to the stores for the clearance sales.

Yesterday I was out getting cards for Mother's Day and May birthdays I was reminded this Paper Store has a clearance section that continues year round. When they mark items down in the store, they move them to a special room. I did not expect to find much, but to my delight I found an Hello Kitty dressed as a bunny, an Easter version of the Barrel of Monkeys game that substitutes bunnies and an egg for the monkeys and the barrel, and a couple of cute cars. I even found a card game I had not encountered before to put away for Christmas. My 2012 Easter stash has begun. I much prefer the prices after Easter than before.

Amigurumi Toy Box is Coming

I was very excited to get notice that Amigurumi Toy Box: Cute Crocheted Friends is shipping! Ana Paula Rimoli has posted on her blog that the books should be shipping soon, but I am pleased that my copy will finally arrive.

Yes, I am a groupie. She is still committed to publishing print books and that is huge. I am slowly moving to buying e-patterns, but I love my printed books.
