I love living in the US. One reason is all the arts and craft stores and the big variety of supplies they sell. 🙂
I remember when I lived in Germany I couldn’t find too many nice things..and when I found some, they were pretty expensive.
But here in the US it’s different. It’s a crafty person’s paradise! 😛 In my state we have craft stores like AC Moore, Michael’s and Jo-Ann’s. When I lived in the South, I loved shopping at Hobby Lobby.
They have sooooooooo many cool things for every creative project you can imagine…and most of the time they have great sales going on. 😀
Last weekend we stopped at a Jo-Ann’s on our way home from a Christmas party and I found a few things I’m going to use for my envelope making and letter writing. And of course they were all on sale 😀 My penpals can expect pretty and colorful letters in their mailboxes soon. 😉
Here’s what I got:
A scrapbook set (including album), Halloween die-cut card stock and lots of stickers 🙂
I’ll be using these for my Halloween 2013 envelopes 😀
Pretty alphabet stickers
And some vintage style stickers for only $1!
Somehow I totally missed that this set also included an album 😉 But that works for me! Not sure what I’m going to use it for yet, but it’s pretty and I love all the papers, stickers and other things included in the set!
Did I mention that I love pretty paper?!
I can’t wait to use these pretty stickers! They remind me of Valentine’s Day… 😉
Do you have any cool crafts stores where you live?
