Shopped till I dropped
Whenever anyone visits from overseas the one thing they want to do before they leave is shop. Our prices are better and generally the exchange rates gives them an even bigger discount. Yesterday Laura wanted to shop and I decided to go along because I wanted to look for a few things for myself. My wardrobe, such as it is, is a tattered mess. I hate shopping so will wear my clothes as long as I can. I'm hard to fit and have a narrow range of styles that I like so shopping is always tedious and painful.
Apparently Laura is my shopping good luck charm because I brought home bags of stuff! We shopped from 11 until 5. I was absolutely exhausted but very happy to finally have some decent "public" clothes. My home clothes are still a tattered mess, as they should be.
We made only 1 stop at a craft store because she wanted to get some cake decorating things for her daughter. I picked up these dimensional paints.
I'm hoping I can make some dimensional dots to decorate these cards a bit more. I have all the trees sewn on so I'm nearing the end of this set.

tedious and painful, I hear you. My DH loves to shop, I hate it. But with a recent weight loss I had to go shopping or be nekid. I have also vowed to dress better at home, except when dyeing of course, not that anyone has noticed, ahem.
I'm shopping today and hope to find a couple new things - I have come to realize that I have nothing but T-shirts and capri's or jeans and none that look really nice when I am out and about - looking kind of "dumpy" I think especially with the extra 10 pounds around my hips that I can't seem to get rid of.
