Shopping for creative goodies

Wayne and I took a little trip…just him and I :)
We are in Duluth MN.
Our first stop was Barnes & Nobel.
I didn't think I needed anything from there….we were just wasting time until 5 Guys opened up, lol.
Turns out I needed 6 journals, lol.
The top set, is a set of 3 :)

First crafty shopping after an early lunch was Hobby Lobby :)
We don't have a Hobby Lobby near me, so this store is always a treat :)
Usually when I come here, almost everything is on sale..not this time :(
I said I wasn't going to get anymore paper, but the set in the background was pretty cute and very cheap.

Funny story:
Wayne and I were walking past an isle in Hobby Lobby and I here "Tracy!"
It was my friend Myra…funny to see someone you know when we are away….but it happens quite a bit, lol.

I also said I didn't need any more washi tape….but apparently I did, lol.

Wayne wanted to check out Best Buy…I didn't.
So I got him to drop me off at the dollar store.
How much fun is the dollar store….oh yes and I see a few more rolls of washi tape, teehee.

Wayne also wanted to check out Menards.
He always seems amazed that I can find craft supplies in any store we go to, lol.
I seem to be picking up quite a few napkins on this trip.
I have an art journal page for each of these napkins….really, I do ;)

After a delicious dinner at Red Lobster…can you imagine what I ordered….I ran into Walmart, in Superior, to pick up a couple packages of my pastries…Cream horns…yummy.
I think Wayne was wondering what took me so long to pick them up.
I took a wrong turn and ended up in the craft isle……found a few good deals ;)

Lastly we went to Michael's.
I thought these little note books with the cover "So Many Ideas…." was perfect for me :)
Yes, yes, more washi tape ;)
I gave Wayne 2 coupons to use, and I paid at a different till and also used 2 coupons.
Then I asked her if I could have them back as I was headed Minneapolis tomorrow…she was nice enough and gave them back to me :)
I like this Michael's waaayyyy better than the one at home.

Lastly we went to Target to pick up some pop for Wayne and a chocolate milk for me….and to pick something up that Ashley and Kristy asked for.
Look they had new washi tape!!!
I have the grass washi, but use it so much that I decided to get another one :)

We are now back at the hotel….Wayne watching Gold Rush and me fondling….I mean admiring my new goodies ;)

I hope you all have a very Creative day :)
I am heading to bed soon as we have a long drive tomorrow and I need my strength for shopping, teehee.
