Field Trip

Yesterday me and the lovely Susan went on a field trip. I decided to drive us to Topsfield,MA home of Absolutely Everything. It took a little over an hour to get there and I am glad(at least my wallet is)that it is not any closer.We had a great time shopping(we did visit a second time after lunch), having lunch and talking the day away. It was one of the best days I have had in quite a while.

Here are some of the goodies I bought-rubons and clear stickers. Hambly and American Crafts are big faves of mine

a few embellishments-the bling packages have both jewels and pearls in one pack! I only wish I could find somewhere that had all the Maya Road stuff. I LOVE their products!
and one of my favorite purchases, Maya Road of course-a canvas covered album with 2 canvas pocket pages as well as 4 chipboard pages. I think I will paint it
I bought a bunch of transparencies (damn you Kelly),a few sheets of paper and some ribbon as well. I miss this kind of shopping!

I have also been doing a bit of sewing too. I made this pillow for my mum in colors that go with her living room which has a beachy theme to it.
I am also making a coordinating throw quilt for her couch.
That's about all for now. All day long I get these great ideas in my head and say to myself "I should put that on the blog" but when the time comes to sit down at the computer I can't remember any of it. So just think of all the witty things you miss!
But yesterday was a good day and today wasn't too bad either. And I keep trying.


  1. One of my friends (who also blogs) keeps a small pocket notebook with her and writes stuff down for her blog. It's a great idea.

    OY! I see stuff I don't have. LOL You can't blame me for everything. *snort*

  2. I am going to NOW!!!!!!

  3. It was a fun trip and to think we bought completely separate things is amazing. It's nice that you can do those things for your Mom.
