I went shopping!!!!
Cha ching!!! I made a quick out of town trip weekend before last with a good buddy of mine! We went to Georgia for two nights and three days! I had such a wonderful time! We went down to visit with her family, who made me feel so very comfortable and right at home! : )
Her mom has recently discovered scrapbooking and promised to take us to some fun little shops! She is hopelessy hooked and full of bubbly energy! We had a blast! There were several shops on our agenda, but we only made it to two because we spent so much time in them! LOL The first store we went to was called the 50% Off Scrapbook Everything Store! OH MY GOODNESSS!!!!! When we walked through the door the cute little clerk (who was scrapping while she worked...what a job, huh?!!!!) hollered hello to us and told us that the paper in the boxes on the floor (6 GINORMOUS!! BOXES) were all 25 sheets for $2.00...which after the discount would make them 25 sheets of 12 X 12 designer papers for $1.00!! BARGAIN!! That was when my head started reeling! I got a little dizzy and the room started to go a little blackish! I got 50 (!!) for $2.00!! I am kicking myself now for not getting more, but the store just kept going back and back and I was concerned about getting it all home! They had soooo many fun papers and eyelets and brads and kits and glue things and embellishments and....OH MY GOODNESS!!! I wound up spending $26.00 for all the fun things in this picture! (minus the few things I picked up at the next store!).
Our next stop was lunch...we needed to refuel! We had a yummy lunch and then we went to Archiver's!!!! I have never been to one of these! Ok, now you must remember! I live in the slap middle of the woods! There are zero stop lights!! There is one restaurant, one bank, one convenience store and a Post Office in my tiny little town Most days it is quaint, but when you are jonesin' for a craft fix...it feels pretty darn lonely! LOL The closest craft anything is 45 minutes away! So, I was in scrapbook and cardmakers heaven! I walked through the doors and the angelic choir began to sing! It was a beautiful thing!! LOL
They were a little pricier than the previous store, but oh the selection! I was astounded and a little over whelmed! LOL I kept my purchases there to a small minimum, but was creating a mental wish list longer than I am tall!! What fun!!!
After that it was to the cheesecake place where we had cheesecake and sweet, fattening coffee!! I was so dang happy! LOL
Here is a picture of my loot! : )
Ah! Happy Day!

P.S. I am already planning my strategy for a return trip! LOL
