This last Thursday I got to meet a couple of my favorite people in Blogland, and you all know who you are!
One of my best friends is Joyce from Scrap For Joy. Joyce and her sister Barb wanted to get out of the cold and wet for awhile. They couldn’t have picked a better week! It was sunny and warm on Thursday and we had a ball!
This is L to R Barb, Me, Joyce. We just couldn’t stop laughing! We met in old downtown Mesa and started our day at a store called Domestic Bliss….is that a great name or what? They are changing some of the items they used to sell so all of their crafting items, fabrics, trims, doo dads were 40% off. That was too much fun!
We took a little break and Joyce brought out this sweet little bag with some goodies just for me! :)
Isn’t this the cutest little box???? I just love it!
But it got even more fun when I opened it…look what was inside!
Wonderful tags and goodies…..
Sorry this photo is a little lame, but the sweet charm was made by another friend of Joyce’s, Mimi. She has a sweet blog named http://www.dandelionwishes-mimi.blogspot.com/. On the back it states “ fun friend”.
Two fun vintage game cards with my initials, a big bunch of fun tickets and of course, a Mary E. paperclip! So Fun!!!!!!
We then had a bite of lunch and went to my favorite store in downtown Mesa, Mystic Paper ( http://www.mysticpaper.com/). Poor Barb doesn’t have any independent scrapbooking store where she lives, so she went a little crazy! But the store has just been stocked with a lot of new things they had seen at CHA….Joyce did her fair share of damage too! :)
Me??? I did OK…..LOL
This little guy was a gift from another wonderful person, and you know who you are! Thank you so much!!!! He is on my shelf over my desk. :)
The 5 hours we were together just went flying by, I wish we could have had another whole week! Maybe next time! Thanks Joyce and Barb, you are so special to me. And Barb, take a crack at the blogging, I know you can do this! I was right where you are about two years ago. And if I can do it, anyone can! LOL
