Today was a full day of shopping.
It was so nice to sleep in and not have to pack all our stuff up to move to another hotel :)
I guess there is a big foot ball game and the Minnesota State Fair is going on here this weekend. We didn't know this when we booked our rooms. Luckily we found adjoining rooms in the hotel we always stay at when we come here.
Unfortunately it was a smoking room :( So we picked up a bottle of Febreze and sprayed it all over. Funny thing is the smell isn't to bad. Reminded me of my younger years, lol.
Years ago I had a non-smoking room that not only smelled like smoke, but had ashes and butts hidden behind the night stand, gross. It wasn't this hotel.
I think the smoking rooms get the short end of the stick though. The bedding is butt ugly, the furniture is worn and the shower has little pressure. We kept joking about this most of the weekend.
Now what you all are waiting to see...my shopping purchases.
I was so excited to go to Archiver's. Sadly this is all I found, 4 sheets of paper, some smash book jounaling tags. I used my coupon and think I spent about $15.00 .
Wayne just shook his head. I think I disappointed him, lol.
I picked up some chipboard shapes, mini bags and some pretty flowers.
Wayne found me a Blicks store (some one in Archivers told me there was one in town).
I had never been in one before. So we dropped the girls off at Burnsville mall and went to Blicks.
OMG this store is a must for all Copic lovers. Wow.
I went through my book and started pulling out markers. Wayne asked me if I was close to filling my collection.
All but the florescent colours, I don't think I would ever use them.
He told me well the price is real good here you might as well get all the ones you are missing then.
Do you even have to ask me why I love this guy so much :)
So I bought 34 of them today.
Picked up the girls from the mall. Then they all went into Best Buy, I stayed in the jeep to colour in my copic chart.
Sad thing is I missed getting 8 colours. How The Hell did that happen. I think I must have forget them in the basket :(
Plus the store was closed.
So I figured, what the heck, I will do one more walk around Archivers.
I guess I was a little sad about the marker episode, so I picked up these goodies.
Love those wooden shapes, especially the wings.
I also bought sticky back canvas, I have never played with this before.
I brought some of my markers with me and some images that I had stamped. I have not coloured once. I thought I would have a lot of down time in the hotels....wrong. I so want to colour.
Sadly we are leaving real early in the morning, so I won't be able to check out that gem of a store on the way to Duluth, The Pine City Scrapbooking Co. I am trying to get Wayne to take Monday off of work to relax (then maybe we wouldn't have to leave so early). Yes I have an atrial motive ;)
I have to get the receipts ready for when we cross the border, I dread this part. I think Wayne will be putting some of my purchases on his list :)
Plus I have to put away all my goodies. Yes I take everything out and look at it, lol. I feel like that Gollum from Lord of the Rings..My Precious', lol.
Hope you all enjoyed your Saturday, and was able to be creative today.
