Home Sweet Home.

We made it home. Without any body searches at the border LOL.
It is nice to go away, but it is sooo nice to come back home. I haven't even unpacked anything yet. We woke up at 6:30am. Ya the "Time Nazi" had a schedule. We then went to Duluth. Went to Menard's, Gander Mountain, Miller Hill Mall then I got to go to my Scrapbook store that I like. I only got a few things. Then to the Quilt Corner in I think Beaver Bay. I love quilt stores they seem so cozy.
When we got home, Ashley needed some more paper for her invitations. So I have been helping her put them all together as they need them by tomorrow.

Here is a book I read on the drive. It was about a teen who doesn't have goals for her future. So a teacher suggests that she start a blog and document her life. This poor girl has no sense of self worth. It was a fast, easy read. The end is a surprise.

OK I know you didn't come here looking for a book report, so on to the fun stuff. I went to True Colours, Opps Colors. I only got a few things as I seem to have everything else they had in stock, haha just kidding. They have a lot of supplies there. I love the vintage tags I got. I also love the dies. When you shop there you get points. I knew this but have never used them. Well they said that I had 800 points. They have merchandise that you can choose from with your points. I picked the stamps. I couldn't find anything else I wanted. The stamps were 100 points.
When I went to the Quilt Corner I picked up these patterns for some more purses and bags. I already want to alter the pattern. Ya I can't leave anything alone. I have to tweak it LOL. The Snap Happier purse, it closes tight and you pull on the handles and it opens. How does it do this? Well you put a piece of a metal tape measure in the casing. How cool it that. They had a change purse with this same closure. I couldn't stop playing with it. The pattern for the change purse was sold out, but I think I can figure out how it was made. So cute.
I am so tired I hope this post makes sense. I am going to sleep till at least noon tomorrow. Mind you that won't happen as I haven't talked to my dad since we left so he will be phoning me tomorrow morning.
I am hoping to totally finish my mini for Kate tomorrow. It will be in the mail by Monday. 100%.
Night all Hope you had a good Thursday.

  5. I used to love to read in the car during long road trips. Now I get car sick if I do. I'm falling apart in my old age, lol!

  6. I have Amy Butler purse patterns too. I haven't made any yet. Just happy to look at the pattern for now. I need to get my poop together and make them!


Leave me some love and I will return it right back to you :)
