I think got the attention of my cousin. :)
I'm being a little sarcastic, but I spent all day Saturday in Fremont and loved it!
I found my new favorite scrapbook store. My old favorite scrapbook store closed last November and the other ones nearby don't quite fulfill my scrapbooking needs. Now Fremont isn't right around the corner, it's a good 25 minutes away without traffic. Add traffic, and it could be a good 45+ minutes away. But I'll probably go to this new store more often than the store that's only 3 miles away from my house because the people in Fremont are freaking awesome. Friendly, enthusiastic and helpful. I haven't seen that kind of customer service in a long time - awesomeness. And they have great classes, too. Now, I've been scrapbooking for a very long time, but I still love taking classes for the social part of it. I like the atmosphere of a bunch of creative souls gathered together. And lots of times, I just can't find the inspiration on my own so taking these classes also motivate me to do more on my own. It was even cooler that the group of ladies in this class were so friendly and talked to each other and shared supplies.
So, this is what we made in class today. It's a gatefold minibook. Cute, yea? (doris, we used the crop-a-dile!) I've already signed up for another class on Thursday.
During class, one of the ladies mentioned the new huge Joann's on Auto Mall Parkway. I decided to check it out on my way home. It's Texas sized, people. In that same shopping center, there's a new Lowe's, Costco, 2 Starbucks, lots of other shopping, and most important for the husband, a Chipotle Mexican Grill. Hurray! As long as I bring the boy food, he never complains about my scrapbooking adventures.
