Mid Week Road Trip....

Seriously, I was REALLY productive on Monday and Tuesday, so naturally by Wednesday I earned a Road Trip!  I even went into the office this morning and put the finishing touches on a few things, so that was like two and a HALF productive days...  So I did what any good mother would do... I called MY mom and made sure she was free to collect the girls from the school bus and off I went!  I did confess to Lucy that I was heading to a new scrapbook store and she didn't even give me the "are you kidding?" face...she must be getting soft on me...either that or she heard me talking about Christmas bonuses...

So back to the point...I'm so easily distracted...CREATE 365 opened on Monday.  I have crossed paths with the owner Amy Muffoletto (I mean she's a scrapbooker, I'm a scrapbooker...seriously, we have like NO DEGREES of separation).  So I've been dying to get to her store... since Monday...and FINALLY today was the day...how did I manage to wait two and half WHOLE days...

please allow me to provide some visual goodness....


Every inch of the store was one fabulous display after another...Once, I heard Oprah say, "It's all about the packaging" and she was SO right.  I would rather shop in a store that is decorated, clean and inviting than  the dirty unorganized unmerchandised store around the corner...Sorry...soap box...more beautifulness...  


The card catalog stole my heart!  Where could I put one in my house???  There were jars filled with vintage buttons and manila tags that held yards of ribbon, twine and tulle..,and the tags were stamped with precious images.  If you are ever looking for a Melody Ross product, head straight to Create 365. 

Amy also holds events called FAITH 365 which is a weekend of scrapbooking with a spiritual twist maybe?  Amy may have to correct me...Well, if you know me, I'm not exactly a card carrying member of the bible belters, therefore I have been hesitant about these so called FAITH events.  But, the projects look fantastic, the food sounds yummy and they are held in the hotel next to the store.  So I'm going to buckle down, register for a FAITH 365 event and soak up some spirituality.  Wish everyone around me luck and I hope to see you there!

So not fair! You could have come to my work and kidnapped me. Remember they don't lock the door on my side of the building. I can't wait to get there and see all of the goodness. The pics you took are wonderful. NOW the BIG question????????? What did you BUY? I want pics of that.
