Vacation Shopping Haul


Okay, we're back from our two week trip to Southwest Indiana and Chicago visiting family.   We had a wonderful visit.  I was able to visit a few crafty places I'd never visited before, however, suitcase space severely limited my shopping.  All in all it was fun, and I have new to me stuff.

Colorful Bling purchased from Big Lots in Terre Haute, Indiana. 

Kassie's Brocade and Grace's Frame Embossing Folders from Hobby Lobby, also in Terre Haute, Indiana.  Being in Hobby Lobby was a paper overload, so many paper packs, I've never seen such a variety before, wow.   Too bad there aren't Hobby Lobby stores in California, although it's good for the wallet that I don't live near one.

I actually found the Archiver's store, it's an amazing store, I want to live there.  DD would just laugh at me for walking around the store in a daze trying to take in all the stuff they had in the store.  I also found out they have an on-line store, so that will be nice.

I picked up this quilling/petal roller tool to work with flowers and such.  I also picked up the punch for the same reason, to make flower centers.  I have plenty of flower choices on my Cricut Cartridges, I just wanted a little something for the flower centers.

Our daughter runs Cross Country and Track so finding these stickers and embellishments is awesome.  Finally, stuff for her sport.

She likes this paper, we bought all they had, and to get the paper home in our suitcases, we bought a mailing tube, rolled the paper and stuck the tube in our suitcase.  No bends, or wrinkles.  This paper will be great for her running photos.

This Sew Easy set is for me, a complete indulgence and I can't find them locally.  I'm looking forward to using these on my layouts and pages.  I'm known for all the cross stitching I do, so having sewing on pages will just be "so me."

Great that you are home. I would love to go to Hobby Lobby, but like you I would get overloaded. Paper everywhere and other fun goodies. How do you choose?
