Scrappy Adventure. Day 2

I'm like a kid at Christmas ;)
I had all my new crafty supplies surrounding me, so Sharon took a photo.
Is it sad that this makes me so happy ;)
Now don't look at those bags on the floor ;)
Those are home decorating supplies…and a couple of packages of cream horns ;)
One of the things we wanted to do on this trip was to check out Crafts Direct.
We have never been here, but I have read a some good things about it on 2peas.
It was about 1.5 hours from Hinckley, but so worth the drive :)
What I also loved about it (besides all the creative goodies inside) was the front of the building.
It looks like 7 adorable stores, where they are all one store once you enter the front doors :)
They had a lot of paper…and a lot of 6x6 paper pads.
The majority of these were under $4.00 each.
Don't judge me….I have a 6x6 addiction, but I don't have a problem ;)
I was so excited to see that they not only carried the Wink of Stella pens, but they also had clear :)
I am not an internet shopper, so have been waiting for the scrapbook stores, that I visit while on our trips, to have them. Every time I am here they are always sold out.
So excited to try them. 
I picked up a clear and a red. 
I found some more washi tape…again, no judging ;)
Also found some fun stamps :)
The cute witchy one to the top, I had seen at Pine City Scrapbookers yesterday, but didn't get it. 
Was going to get it tomorrow (as Sharon and I are going back there) but with my luck it would have been gone. 

On our way back from Crafts Direct, we stopped off at Jo-Anns.
I want to play around with chalk ink, so picked up a few colours.
I also grabbed this cool 3D sticker…thought I might do a zombie layout of when Ashley did some photography of them acting out Night of the Living Dead ;)
I did a mini album of that photo shoot, but not any scrapbook pages.
Also found me some peeps ;)
How long did it take me to finish off the whole package….weeellllll, under the time it took us to get back to the hotel.
Don't worry I didn't eat them all myself, Sharon got 1/2 of one ;)
Here is my haul from today :)
Here is Sharon's…such a light weight, lol 
A kid on Christmas morning ;)
I think its a good thing that we don't live near these stores ;)

Onto My Day:
Besides crafty shopping, we went to the casino for supper.
Then Sharon wanted to gamble…it was all too much for me to lose my $3.00, so I walked around the casino to get in some steps.
Until I realized that I probably looks suspicious walking around the casino, so found Sharon at a machine.
We enjoyed another hot tub tonight.
Tomorrow we are planning another trip to Pine City…oh yah, I forgot to share those goodies with you from yesterday. I will do that tomorrow.
We are also planning to do a bit of colouring.

Proud Tuesday.
I am proud that I still have some money left over to shop with tomorrow ;)
I am proud that I still got over 10,000 steps, considering it seems like I haven't walked much.

I hope you all had a very Creative Tuesday :)
I can't wait to play with all my goodies.
I didn't even bring a trimmer or adhesive with me…..and I call myself a crafter, teehee.

Tracy :)

    That store is pretty cool. What an interesting way to have the outside. I've never seen that before, and it would definitely make the store catch my eye if I was walking or driving by.

  14. I'm so envious of all the fun you are having! What a great time. And I am also addicted to those adorable 6x6 paper pads. I have more than I'll ever use.
