Mail Call: Supplies from Pick Your Plum and Downtown Tape

I love ordering stuff online. That’s in part because I love shopping (guilty!), but also because it’s so much fun to get mail and other packages that aren’t part of the usual pile of bills and junk. And because I find so many awesome deals on so much fun stuff that sometimes I just can’t resist! Yesterday was a really, really good mail day because I got two packages that I’d been eagerly awaiting: One from Pick Your Plum, and another from Downtown Tape.

Pick Your Plum is one of my favorite shopping obsessions. They offer limited quantities of one item each day Monday through Friday – that’s right, just five items per week! The prices are hugely discounted and the products are really unique so you have to act fast; once the items are sold out for the day, that’s it! The other day they had some really pretty embossed metal sheets. I snagged six of them that are each 5 inches square, which I plan to turn into photo displays by adding some cute magnets. Even after paying for shipping charges, the squares came out to under $2 a piece!

I was also tickled to see my package from Downtown Tape. I love the look and ease of using washi tape in projects but, living in a very small town with limited crafty resources, I couldn’t get my hands on any locally. With a couple of ideas rattling around in my head, I finally decided to order a couple of rolls. I chose Downtown Tape for a few reasons: I really like their pretty patterns, their prices are reasonable, and they have a low flat-rate shipping charge. I got two patterns to start with, but I know I will be ordering more. Lots and lots more!
