Hot Cocoa and some Scrappy shopping
What better way to start a winter trip then with a nice warm cup of Hot Chocolate from the Holiday gas station.
I have to tell you they have great hot chocolate....but you have to let it sit for a half hour or you will burn the dickens out of your mouth.
I had a chuckle out of their display :)
During the holidays, Wayne likes to put the fire place channel on. It started out as a joke, but now it seem to be a tradition :) Their display reminded me of that.
I guess you are wondering where we were going?
We are in Minneapolis :)
The girls wanted to go on a little family vacation before the holidays and of course Wayne was all for it :)
I have so much to do at home....but what the heck, every time I think "oh this is going to be our last family vacation with my girls" then we sneak in another one :)
So our first stop is always Cabela's. Wayne checks off his list and I pick up some fudge and better yet some Bear Claws...I save those for crafting snacks..a bite here and there, I can make those suckers last, lol.
I have to correct that...actually our first stop is Pine City Scrapbooking.
This is what I purchased from there :)
I have been looking for this E6000 glue for awhile now. I have never used it but hear it is really good stuff.
I was disappointed in this District Market note book by Tim Holtz. I should have opened it up first to really see what it was. I thought it would be tissue paper or even paper with these patterns on it....but its not, its just brown paper :(
I can see me hoarding the fabric tape measure though. And loving the die :)
Kristy got a kick out of the spray that was in the stores washroom, lol.
I was so excited to go into Scrapbookers Too. I love this store, the lady that owns it is so nice and she remembers me every time I go in there.
Sadly when we pulled up there was a sign on the window that they were closing....I could see her inside the store, so went in to chat. Turns out they are closed (it was empty in there :( ) But she is going to work her dream job CHA. I am happy for her, but sad that I won't be able to shop there any longer.
So we dropped the girls off at Burnsville mall and Wayne and I headed to Joann's. I really didn't see anything that caught my eye.
But Wayne found me this Tim Holtz die. Ever since I had met Tim Holtz, Wayne has kept his out out for T.H. products, teehee.
Wayne also remembered how much I wanted the cricut cartridge for Tags, Bags Boxes and More, so he brought this one to my attention ;)
We also went to a few other stores but I will share those with you tomorrow...just in case I can't find any other fun crafting supplies...like that's going to happen, lol.
I hope you have all had a creative Friday :)
It has been snowing here today. Hopefully tomorrow it will be a beautiful day :)
