Lucky Crafter

Jo Ann's was having quite a good sale yesterday, 40% off all my favorite things. As it turned out I did not buy anything that was 40% off. But, I did buy this little notepad that was marked down to 50 cents. It is smaller than it appears, 4 1/2 " x 3 ". Small enough for a quick little project. I made it while making super, macaroni and meatballs.

I tried to get the price tags a little clearer, it is a dark day here, it is snowing. Not much I can do to increase the light, without moving lamps and then I would probably start rearranging furniture. $2.97 for 50 sheets of paper, heavy card stock paper. $1.97 for 24 sheets of tags, letters, words, flowers and frames. These were no brainers, they had to come home with me.

I consider myself a lucky crafter. I live about 20 minutes from three craft stores, Michael's, AC Moore and Jo Ann's. They are located within less than five minutes from each other. I wonder how long they will all stay open? I usually shop at Jo Ann's because they have fabric. They also have a great paper selection too. I have never been to a Hobby Lobby, I am not sure if there is even one in New England. I will have to do some investigating, that means a google search.

We used to have an AC Moore but it closed about a year ago. We do have Hobby Lobby and Michaels. All of the good fabric stores here are closing. What's up with that?

ps you amaze me that you can whip this notebook out while you are cooking! You go girl!

Your notebook is really cool! I love it!

Have a great day!

I like your notebook. We have Jo Ann's, Michaels, and Craft Warehouse. In our small town, we have an incredible bookmaking store. The papers and ribbons, etc. are very unique.
It's amazing how much you do in a day.
