Speaking of the LOB, have you folks checked out your local store yet? Lots of clearance items. What's your favorite LOB (or any other big box store) purchase of late? I don't know about you, but I always look like I'm casing the joint when I go in there. I proceed directly to the paper crafting section. No stopping to look at the wall decor or fancy geese figurines- screw that. (I'm still bitter, sorry). I then go methodically down one side of the aisle and then up the other. Evaluating all the yummy goodness the Lob has to offer. Filling my basket along the way. I then b-line it over to the clearance section, back to the stamp section, then meander over to the jewelry department, then proceed onward to fine arts. After that, I get the nagging feeling that I have missed something AWESOME and I work my way back to paper crafts. Every visit, with out fail.
I know you will think I'm crazy, but every time I go in there, I hear an announcement calling a Code Pink for Carl. I think Carl is the eye in the sky and he's being told to re-direct the camera on my pockets! I'd never tarnish the sanctity of the Lob. But, it sure feels like they suspect shenanigans from me. Maybe it's because I'm always digging in my purse for my wish list, or my phone. That's not suspicious is it?! again... I digress....
What does any of this have to to with my Growing In Unity Posts? Nothing... absolutely nothing. I was just trying to alert you that Hobby Lobby is starting to clearance out some paper crafting supplies and you should take a look. I found some paper doilies in various colors for $.75 a pack!! (Happy Dance)). It felt almost as rewarding as when Unity Stamps go on sale!!! Oh, look... I had a correlation after all. Go Me! I hope you have a wonderful day and a crafty weekend!
Now on to the show
Today's project is more of a fun art piece that you could put on your fridge, or maybe hang up at your at work in your depressing cubicle. It's a measures in at a whopping 6"x11". I'm sending this one to a friend who needs some support. She may choose to line her bird cage with it. I hear she likes Geese!
