Woke up to a little bit of snow one morning--can't remember which one. (When you're home 24/7 it gets hard to keep the days of the week straight--LOL!).
And another day it snowed the same dry, fine, drifting snow...
...for a few hours in the morning.
Was cold enough to keep most of what little there was on the ground.
First true sign of winter.
A frozen car needing to be jumped.
Well, we didn't have enough time on Saturday (K&Krafts closes at 5pm) so Leah and I went craft shopping yesterday afternoon. Was supposed to be a lot warmer than the 9 degrees on Saturday, too, and maybe hit the low 30s. (It might have but the wind sure felt cold.)
First we went to K&Krafts in the Moorhead Center Mall where we spent most of our time.
We were looking for some dark blue ink pads (for some landscape silhouette stamps). They didn't have a refill for the Colorbox in Midnight, so I will probably find that refill online.
Can you tell we LOVE delicate snowflakes?
We bought some cutting dies.
We mostly only have Spellbinder brand, so this will be interesting using these very thin ones.
Those of you who get Christmas cards will have an idea of what several years worth of future cards will look like--LOL! ;)
We got a bunch of Liquid Pearls! I only had a few here and I decided I do really like them.
Except for the (Christmas) Ruby Red, you can tell we are pretty conservative with bling colors.
Next we headed back across the river to Fargo and hit Joann's. We were looking for cheap, plain 8 1/2 X 11 inch card stock and discovered that Joann's had it on sale! Whoohoo! Jackpot!
So we got both the regular and the textured in white...
Got a multi-colored browns in regular and a textured brown.
A regular in red and a different textured, dark multi-colored pack.
The grand finale was a huge stack of multi-colored sheets for $12.99!
Gives us quite a variety to choose from!
So we are stocked up again on card stock. :) Nice!!
By this time I was no good for walking anymore--even though I could go sit somewhere while Leah paid (there were some long lines at the big stores). So I stayed in the car while Leah ran in to Michael's to look for more snowflake stuff. (I forgot to take a picture of the store because I was watching a craft video on my cell phone and Leah was texting me from inside the store--LOL!) She found this Martha Stewart snowflake punch that she liked and sent me a picture! Pretty cool, eh?
Anyways, that was our shopping trip. We go on a craft haul about once a year--sometimes it's longer than that, but it's always such fun! We have such a good time. It tickles me that we have similar tastes in a lot of things, too, so we both get excited finding this or that treasure...like--ahhhh--those snowflake dies!! Yup, feels like Christmas over here this morning!! :)
Happy Monday, Everybody!! :):)
