Here is what I brought with me for this weekend. Yeah, it was a lot and most of what I own but I did end up using almost everything I brought so that makes it all worth it. Plus everyone else used the stuff I brought too so it all worked out. Friday the four of us (Kristine, Nancy, Margaret and I) met at the Fabric Barn around 3:00 when I got to town and we tore that place a part. I got 25 yards of 10 different colors of 5/8 inch grosgrain ribbon and 80 yards of 10 different colors of 1/4 inch grosgrain. All matching Stampin' Up. Woo hoo! The 5/8 inch ribbon is 5 yards for $1 and the 1/4 inch ribbon was 8 yards for $1. Great deals. We stayed up until 2:30 Saturday night stamping and talking. I did more talking than stamping though. I only made one card. LOL I know, that is so bad. But I made up for it Saturday. After the stamp mania and dinner, Kristine went home and Nancy, Margaret and I stamped until 12:00 and I got a couple more things done. Then after they left, I so wanted to go to bed so I jumped in bed and tried to fall asleep but I just couldn't, I ended up getting back up and stamped until 3am. It was fun but I paid for it Sunday. I set my alarm for 9am but I woke up at 6:30am I managed to fall back asleep until 8:30. I ran down and got breakfast and brought it up to the room. I stamped for a couple more hours before I had to put my stuff away and head home. It was a long 7 hour drive cause I packed my I-Pod. I thought it was in the glove box but it wasn't. Oh well.
I brought WAY too many stamps. I only used a few of them, but you never know what you are going to want right? Last year I didn't bring this many and I used something from each set. I guess I just wanted to be prepared. It was such a good time though. I wish I lived in SO Cal. I could get together with my friends a lot more than once a year. Next time I am going to plan better and know what I am going to use as far as stamps ahead of time.
Here is the paper I brought. The brown box is 12 x 3 or 12 x 4 and full of pattern paper that Kristine gave me. Thanks Kristine! I used several sheets from it already. Some SU but mostly other companies. I can't wait to look at it better and see what else is in there and what I can do with it. I had a great weekend with the girls. Not long enough though. Lots of laughs, shopping, and stamping. It was fantastic. I will post projects tomorrow. I also had several requests to change my feed to full so people could see the entire post with google reader. Here you go ladies!
