I made a trip to one of my favorite shops saturday. Buffalo stamps and stuff. the store is packed from floor to ceiling with the neatest supplies. Its so easy to spend a small fortune in there. When I went in, there was no one else in there. I went by myself so I was in no hurry and I made sure to look at everything there.. and I do mean EVERYTHING. I was there a good hour and I didnt realize that there was a class going on next door. All of a sudden all these ladies started pouring into the store filling baskets full of stuff and many of them managed to get in line in front of me! I knew I was spending about 60.00 and I was thinking that I really shouldnt spend so much money on freaken pieces of paper! but I soon didnt feel so bad at all as I purposely ease dropped and watched to see what the others in line before me were buying and spending! 147.00, 165.00, 73.00, 124.00, 44.00 and 109.00. those were the just the ladies I could hear. There were probably 20 women in the store besides me. Im thinking the owner of that store made a mint in those few minutes! And what were they all buying?? Rubber stamps, inks, glitter, tools, papers, embellishments.. and who knows what else! they were making cards!
needless to say that I didnt feel quite as bad about my 60.00 after that!
Actually I feel blessed that I can afford to feed my creative spirit.. because its hungry and it likes to be fed supplies.. lots of supplies! Though I try to keep it on a bit of a diet! But I'm thinking that most of those ladies ahead of me have fat little creative spirits! lol!
anyways.. thats all folks! see yas later!
