First - something very off topic, but it has to be confessed cuz I can't hold it in any longer... sometimes I call Fox Joey and Joey Fox. I know people mess up their kid's names (my Malm can't call me Paige for the life of her - I should just be Allie #2!), but is it normal to switch kid's/pet's names too? I hope so... It doesn't help that Joey looks like a fox. Anyways. I'll try and do better.
This morning I drove down to Long Beach to meet up with Rachel to get the demo product for the CRAFT Retreat class I'm teaching in November. I got there early so Fox and I ventured into Party City where they're decked to the nines with all things Halloween Halloween Halloween! Fox was in his element.
He's going to love Halloween just as much as me, I can already tell.
Then we drove to Scrapbook Daisies!
Oh my goodness, I can't even tell you how fun it was to be in an actual "LSS" (local scrapbook store)! It's been YEARS! It seems like 99% of little scrapbook stores have gone out of business so this was such a treat. It brought me back to my first job at Yesterday's Scrapbooking and Stuff which is how I got into scrapbooking in the first place a decade ago now.
I love the smell and site of fresh patterned paper.
I love seeing all the latest and greatest, brand new product displayed all pretty. And I love seeing the magazines I work for up at the front counter :) It never gets old to see your name in print!
I let Fox roam free.
He was enamored by all the colors and fun things he thought were toys and kept shoving in his mouth...
To close - guess what I finished???
I can't wait to deliver them all soon!
