The Rest of My Crafty Shopping

I have to say my main goal heading to Minneapolis, was to go into Blicks.
I could spend a lot of time in there, but this time I had one thing on my mind…these water colour pencils.
What I like about them is once you colour, then blend with water….they dry permanent. They aren't suppose to reactivate when more water is added to them, great for layering colours :)
I think they will work beautifully on my art journal pages :)
I noticed they had two sets on the shelf and the biggest set held 36 pencils.
I was advised to get the bigger set from some online crafty friends, as they all got the bigger sets once they used them.
I had asked if they had the bigger set and at first the sales guy said no….but then checked in the back…I was so happy when he told me that they did!!!
I even got $20.00 off the price…bonus!!!!
When I told Wayne how much they were, and that they had the bigger set. He just said that was good.
I love that my husband doesn't blink an eye when I tell him that I spent an outrageous amount of money on coloured pencils, lol.

We went to Tuesday Morning…not much there that interested me, but I do love tags :)

We checked out Joanns.
I have been debating on getting this punch for a while now, and was still debating spending that much on one stamp….but don't think twice about spending 4x's that on coloured pencils, lol.
But Wayne told me to just get it…it was on sale and I looked at it the last time we were in the States.
So I did ;)

Checked out another Hobby Lobby for those tiny envelopes for Ashley's wedding.
I found 3 more sets :)
I was incorrect in my numbers (yes I was a book keeper) I need 3 more, but this is all that they had.
I picked up another of the smaller Dylusions art journal.
And some fun washi tape :)

On our way back to Duluth yesterday, we stopped at one of my favourite scrapbooking stores, Pine City Scrapbooking.
I love how those 2 12x12 papers make the tree when put together.

One of my most fun stamp purchases from this weekend….the zombie stamps…how fun is this :)
I also found some of the fun peel off stickers like I used in my Fauxbonichi in January.

We made it home safe and sound and are now watching 28 Days Later…I think it is a good substitute for missing our Walkng Dead.

I hope you all had a very Creative Day.
Besides sitting in the jeep most of the day…I did take out all of my new goodies and surrounded myself with them all…..oh that is happiness to me, lol.
