3 Bloggers, MIA

Morning all! Thought I'd check in and account for the 3 bloggers that have been missing in action for 3 days! Heather and Carol (Pinefeather and HB) made their way down to St Paul this weekend and we've been stamping and shopping up a storm all weekend.

No store has been left unshopped. We hit Archivers, Dick Blick (HELLO COPICS!), JoAnne Fabric and a new favorite, Anchor Paper in St Paul for reams of Neenah Solar white cardstock. The credit cards are smoking and the inspiration has been flowing. Here's Carol and Piney ooohing and aaahing over cute stuff at a baby store we hit.

The store had the cutest little bibs! We were "drooling" over all the sweet kids clothes with floofy tulle skirts, too! I noticed the cutest card display on their counter.
Everywhere I go I tend to notice the card selection, for some unknown reason!

We were on a quest to find this cool store called "Hunt and Gather, that Piney found when she went to Junkmarket last year.

I could have spent *days* in Hunt & Gather, and a LOTTA money! I wanted this yellow flower bin table in the WORST way. I thought it would make a cute coffee table in my living room.

This pink daybed slipcover ALMOST went home with me. It would have, if I wouldn't have gotten into trouble at Anchor paper & Dick Blick!

Piney spent a lot of time looking in this section!

Look at the cute flash cards!


This scale was THE COOLEST! It actually worked! You could plug a penny or a nickel in it to see your weight, and it was DEAD ON correct! Notice there is not a close-up of the dial that shows the weight...strategic photography, 101! :)

Look how they created cute little banners with hankies! There was inspiration galore!
So today, we are done with the shopping, and focusing in on the stamping! Happy Sunday, everyone!
