On Saturday, January 5, all of the Spongia siblings were together after being apart for 16 months, my brother rode on a Greyhound bus for 19 hours (traveled from San Angelo, Texas - 800 miles away from his roots in Louisiana) to spend some time with his family. My brother in law Ray (Wanda’s hubby) treated us to lunch, we went to a Chinese buffet restaurant in Slidell, then all the girls wanted to shop the 50 % off sale at Hobby Lobby. Wanda ended up taking my brother, Kenny and her hubby, Ray home, while we shopped and got to visit with some of our fellow scrappers that we happen to stumble upon in Hobby Lobby. We stumbled upon the following scrappers in Hobby Lobby …. Julie Lay, her friend Sandra, Kaci Gisclair and her mother, of course you know me I had to stop and chat a bit.
There was some really great sales in the scrap booking/card making sections of the store. Ink pads Colorbox were 50% off, which was great because my sister, Lizzy and myself treated my sister, Wanda to 10 ink pads just because we love her. Of course I treated myself to 2 and 2 packs of cat eyes (3 in a pack for $3.00), 8-½ x 11 solid cardstock was another purchase and it was $2.00 a pack for 50 sheets, which Lizzy, Cathy and myself stock up on … great for making card bases or for paper piecing pieces. Each of us found punches, and stamps that we could use… it was a really great sale.
Julie Lay told us that Scrappin Buds were also having a great sale 50% off everything in the store, we arrived around 3:00 at Scrappin Buds and was able to get a few great buys. Cricut blades (2 in a pack for $5.00), some clear stamps. Lizzy and I stopped at Micheal's on clearview to pick up a box of blank greeting cards for Delaina. Of course, I had to check out the $1.00 bins I found some stamps and 3-d stickers. One of my goals for the 2008 year is to make all my greeting cards. Garnet sent Birthday Alarm.com my way and it is a so neat way of collecting birthdates. I had to make 6 cards for January that is for both family and friends. I have been surfing the internet for some really cute cliparts to use in my card making. The cards on the right are my January cards and four of them were mailed today. So watch your mail box you might be one of the luckey ones.
Wednesday, January 9, my group the "Scrappin Packin Mommas" will be meeting for a card making session. It seems like quite a few of the girls have gotten the fever for card making. The goal for this session is for everyone to bring their scrap paper/cardstock and stamps to share.
