Sometimes you want to go...
Where everybody knows your name! And you walk in, and there's at least one friend to greet you by name ("Norm!!!") OK, so it's not your neighborhood bar, but your local scrapbook store.
Does this happen to anyone else, or is it just me? I rarely go into either one of my lss's and not know someone! Have we scrappers reached the equivalent to the neighborhood bar with our frequent visits to the lss? It's true... I love to go there and hang out, especially if I run into a friend. And, while I don't get the cocktail or glass of wine I may order at the bar, I am satisfied by wandering the aisles and filling my mind with inspiration (and maybe getting a little retail therapy!)
Conincidentally, I did just this very thing on Sunday... went to my lss, saw a lady I go to church with shopping with her daughter, and I bought one of the hottest books right now... Cathy Z's new Clean and Simple book. I have just skimmed the book so far, but it is wonderful!!! I'm normally not the type to buy an idea book, but I did want this one!
