No art this week
No art this week. I miss my supplies. Does planning my ATCs and cards count?
I had a very small bag packed to take with me. It's still on the computer desk at home. Really I don't need another trimmer, scissors, etc. Do I?
I've visited three scrapbook stores in Edmonton.
Scrap-A-Lot - I liked them on the last visit - this time the lady working was cordial to everyone (the dreaded regulars) but distinctly icy with me. Likely won't go back. What a shame because it's a nice store.
Creative Scrapbooks - no opinion. It seemed to be a very nice store, however, I had four people waiting for me in the car. Which doesn't lend its self to a leisurely browse.
Scrap and Bean - See here for opinion.
I did purchase two new books. I'm a sucker for technique books. I'm just not the type read at the computer. I'd rather curl up on the couch with a book and hot beverage.
I also bought 1300+ brads. It was accidental - I didn't realize how many I actually had.
The lady at the store asked if I had a big project.
I replied that I didn't - then she simply thought I was nuts. Plus she likely wasn't enthused that we had to count them all by hand. You try giving them back after the final count.
I didn't have the nerve.
