If Blogging were as simple as Facebook...

I can't tell you how many times I said "If blogging were as simple as facebooking, I'd be set" in the last two months. I am horrible at blogging. I always find myself sewing more than writing. But I'm hoping to change that.

So I know there are a LOT of people who do not like Hobby Lobby. I'm sorry about that. Really but I am a pragmatist, and if I can get something at a good price I'm going to go to the place that has it. Please no hate mail. We are all given Free Choice, that is our right under the law... that being said I found half my supplies at Hobby Lobby and Half at Joann's. If Joann's had had my red cards then I would have purchased them there. This last week HL Had Paper Studio supplies for 50% off.

Here is my supplies:
