Great deal on a birthday present!

Unfortunately, it's for The Lovely Daughter, whose birthday is in November, and not for the Karate Kid, whose birthday is coming up in a little more than a week.


"Regular" price at Michael's is $199.99 - but this week sets were on sale at 50% off. SO down to $99.99. That's better...but wait! Michael's sends me a coupon for 20% off my entire purchase, EVEN SALE ITEMS. Now it's $79.99! YAY! So I buy the set, and then remember that one of the online sites I was checking prices on (Blick - I LOVE Blick) had a note about a $10 rebate. SO I went to the Prismacolor website, downloaded the rebate form, and have it ready to go in the mail. WOOHOO!

This will duplicate some of the colors she already has, but most of "her" pencils are actually the family set of 48 that we scored at the Blick outlet for $10 a couple of years ago, so the bonus is that the family set moves out of her room!

Wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute...THERE'S A BLICK OUTLET????

Yup. Basically a warehouse in the middle of a cornfield. Absolute HEAVEN.
