Retail Therapy



Hello friends!
Yesterday, Mom and I had a little retail therapy!
Our first stop was to Michaels, where we enjoyed looking at Martha Stewart's new paint line. I bought a color called, Beach Glass. I look forward to trying it today! Next stop was Hobby Lobby, where we had a wonderful time!
They had a lot of new stuff in today including an expanded Tim Holtz section, where I picked up this fun postcard/music note embossing folder set.
I also love looking at the wood crafts isle and picked up a bag of clothespins for future craft projects.
Our last stop was to an antique store, where I picked up an Aqua Bingo card and this cute wooden basket to hold my new goodies!




Today I am going to pull out all my Fall/Halloween craft supplies and start organizing it all. Fall is my favorite season! I enjoy looking at my favorite Halloween scrapbook paper to inspire my craft projects .




Wishing you a lovely day, Lindsey

Hi Ladies,

Lindsey, thanks for stopping by. I was on the first design team for Mystic Paper, and taught a class there as well. They have evolved into a wonderful shop that manages to carry all the top line goodies, yet stay intimate and personal. I purchased my first "Tim Holtz" goodies there in 2007 and have been hooked ever since.

As always, I'm very excited to see what lovely work you come up with, and I can't wait to do our personal swap.

Big Hugs,
Meri

Looks like you got a bunch of fun stuff to play with. I also like to pull out supplies for whatever season and get inspired. Looking forward to seeing your fall crafts.

Oh, ladies! Love the tag, "retail therapy"!! And, guess where I'm going after church this morning? Michaels - to be sure! Need some little things to finish a project dealing with china cups, silk roses, and paper crafts - reveal later this week in a post as I prep for my first give-away celebrating a number of milestones this week! Very excited!

I could go broke at Michaels - and usually do to some extent. However, I have scads of "stuff" here and I am purposing to work with what is at hand - rather than go out and get more just yet. Let me see what I can come up with relating to what I already have. Love the challenge - and all the inspiration you two give me!

Joy!
Kathy

Since I didn't head to the States this summer, I missed my visits to Michael's and Hobby Lobby. Always good stuff on sale during the summer. August is just flying by. September truly is just around the corner. Hope your day is great. Tammy

Retail Therapy is the best kind of therapy; isn't it.

Glad you had such a good time and found a few goodies; to boot.

Hugs,
