Black Friday Shopping?! I have a niece who makes a sport of it. She gets all the ads, determines which stores she will go to and in which order. This is the third year she will be doing this crazy shopping while pregnant - can you imagine? This is all done on very little sleep and loads of caffeine or other artificial stimulant. She feels she gets great deals on things she wants.
There is no part of this that appeals to me. I am a night owl and don't ever like to see the crack of dawn. I don't like to stand in line (especially outside, in the cold). I don't like to race to a certain section of a store to grab one of only a few "bargain" items. I don't enjoy the thrill of shopping in the first place so Black Friday shopping only heightens my anxiety level. Besides, there ususally isn't something that I want that is on sale, or there are so few of them that "trying" to get them doesn't appeal to me. I am not competitive by nature so getting a "door buster" before someone else is not a draw. Don't get me wrong, I love bargains especially on the things I love (Stampin' Up!), but I prefer a more civilized version of shopping: online! From the privacy and comfort of my home, feet up, relaxed, strategic, and purposeful. If you are like me prepare for Stampin' Up!'s annual Online Extravaganza 2016!

Hey! If you love the thrill of the hunt, you can still do BLACK FRIDAY! I'll be thinking of you as I sleep in late and stay in my jammies all day! But for now, I hope you will print off a copy of the list of items on sale and head on over to the Duchess of Design online store on Monday!
