Sharing a Shopping Haul Video Featuring Tuesday Morning, Michael’s, and Hobby Lobby. It’s one of those things that I needed to share. Husband doesn’t understand my wanting to chat with someone all the things I purchased. But I know my internet friends understand.
Don’t you have fun when you go shopping for art and craft supplies? I try not to do it to often. My goal this year is to reduce the amount of items in my studio, not add to it daily. lol But sometimes you have to go out and get a few things.
Here is a video of all the goodies I got. Enjoy
Shopping Haul Video Featuring Tuesday Morning, Michael’s, and Hobby Lobby
Sharing a Paper Arts, My Hearts Fancy & Hobby Lobby Haul and Bonus How to make a Laurel Burch Wild Horses Card. Having the opportunity to visit local shops is a wonderful thing. It is good to visit those local shops to help them stay in business.
For this shopping excursion, I had a mission to find a few supplies for upcoming projects. Looking around Paper Arts I found some really cool looking dies that I knew would be perfect for projects.
Drove over to Hobby Lobby and picked up a watercolor journal that I will use for a Traveling Journal Round Robin I’ll be at the end of this month. There was a really nice spiral journal that I feel will be perfect. I’ll have to remove a few pages as we are doing a monthly journal and there are 12 of us in the group. While there I also picked up a pad of watercolor paper to make a journal for another group. This journal will be a watercolor journal swap.
While at Hobby Lobby I wondered over to the clearance section and found a fun die set that says Celebrate. When I saw the letters I saw – Create, Art and knew there were more words I could create. In fact, I did a google search and found a website WordMaker where you can type in the letters and it will tell you the words that can be made. This will be a fun purchase.
At My Hearts Fancy, I found a beautiful Laurel Burch Stamp Wild Horses. Recently while in Santa Fe New Mexico I purchased a beautiful Laurel Burch tote bag that has super cute puppy dogs painted on the outside.
When I walked into My Hearts Fancy I saw a new display of Laurel Burch Stamps and knew that I needed to get one. The Wild Horses stamp spoke to me so I purchased that stamp.
Video of the Paper Arts, My Hearts Fancy & Hobby Lobby Haul:
Once I got home with all my goodies and shared them in the video. I had to make a card too. Pulling out the Brutus Monroe Detail Ink – Raven and a few colors of Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists – Party Pink, Denim Blue, True Turquoise, Night B4 Christmas.
Stamped with Brutus Monroe Detail Ink – Raven using my MISTI. Heat set the ink. Spray with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists – Party Pink, Denim Blue, True Turquoise, Night B4 Christmas. The pinks were on the right and the blues were on the left.
Heat set the sprays. Then using a paint brush I colored the areas that I wanted darker.
I love the shimmer that Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists add to projects. This stamp will be one I’ll enjoy playing with over and over.
Hope you enjoyed my shopping Paper Arts, My Hearts Fancy & Hobby Lobby Haul and Bonus How to make a Laurel Burch Wild Horses Card.
WOW Creativation & Shopping Haul What Fun! I had the best time at Creativation and then an extended vacation after the show. There was so much to see and do during the event!
It was a blessing to be able to attend the show thanks to Canvas Corp Brands. Mind you I did work, I worked hart. The Canvas Corp Brands booth is an elaborate booth. Filled with so much inspiration that it can take more than three days just to see everything.
One of my art works was on display in the booth! It was such an honor to see it on display where it could be seen by everyone.
The Window in the lower right corner is mine.
Being a part of the crew to put the booth together was a blast and hard work. Once the booth was done that is when the fun began.
There were times I got to walk around the show and see lots of things and even try a few of the products first hand.
The Rinea Paper Foil company also had a booth and I got the opportunity to work for a few hours with the owners. It was so great being able to get to know the owners. Sometimes you don’t understand the passion one has until you meet then in person. Diane and AK are awesome people.
One of my favorite things was being able to create a mini hat at the Charity Wings Booth. This organization does awesome work and the ladies that were working the booth were super sweet.
Here is a hat made with Tattered Angels Papers and Mists, the photo was taken by our Finland visitor Lena Holmstrom. She was such a joy to have in the booth and to hang out with.
Another of my favorite things was connecting with people that I only knew on the internet. Several of them I walked up to them and said, Hey I stalk you on the interweb. It was funny. Some loved it some gave me a “look”.
Carol Dube was the best. She just smiled when I took a selfie at her side. It didn’t bother her one bit. lol She even gave me a couple sheets of her gelli prints she was making. I felt blessed.

There was so much that I got to see and do that I made a video that is entirely too long, but I hope you enjoy seeing the goodies and can hear the joy in my voice.
If you ever get to go to Creativation (or whatever they call it next year) please go you won’t be disappointed.
Thanks for stopping by to read and watch about Creativation & Shopping Haul What Fun!
