I am sooooo tired.
I have been to 26 stores so far.
I have 3 to go.
I need a nap!!
And a loan! LOL
Here's what I did today:
Cindy and I went to:
Screamin' Susie's -- Whittier
Very cute store, the owner was super nice too. They had a cute Halloween themed Mnt too. Also, you can sell them your stamps for store credit so I will definitely be back there!
Scrappin' in The Hills -- Anaheim Hills
Nice store with a wide selection. We kind of had to be in and out because we both had kids to pick up form school but I hope to make it back for a longer look someday.
On my way home:
Scrappin' Good Times -- San Dimas
What else can I say? You all know I love this store and teach there! Make sure you stop in the bathroom if you have never been there before--it's an experience. LOL
Katie and I:
Scrapbook Blvd -- Victorville
This store is 5 miles from my house so I am already in there pretty often. They have QK 2x2 dies and alphabets for 40% off--I got some stuff but will have to go back for more later this week. They are doing a big 2nd anniversary sale on Saturday that you won't want to miss. They had a very mini accordian book that was a "take n make" which I thought was a cute concept.
Yesterday a whole group of us got together and went all over the San Diego area. Cindy, Tina, PJ, Elena (Scrapbook Royalty), Laura (Desert Scrappers), and I went to 12 stores in one day. TWELVE!!
First we went to Scrapbook Corner (T), Now and Then, It's About Time, and Scrapbooks Unlimited, all of which I had gone to the day before so I won't recap. Again, I spent too much. Got some great deals on ribbon though!!!
Cool Scrapbook Stuff-- Poway
This store has alot of product! I didn't get a chance to look at it all because we were kind of in hurry after our late start. (haha look at what the sign says).
Memories in the Making
I so want to take the paper bag card class at this store--it is adorable!! The lady working was very sweet too! They have some great stamping items as well.
Yellow Bird Scrapbooking
The store is super cute inside!! The bird had the day off again but it was pretty fun inside and they had some super cute products. Plus they sell Scrapbook Royalty's signature tote hooks so you gotta love that supports charities!!
Scrapbook Your Life
Again, we were in a mega hurry so we did not spend much time in here but they really reminded me of Wooten's in Palm Desert. The glare was really bad because it was sunset and it was reflecting off the windows.
What's funny about this store is I was coming home from Scrapbook Expo San Diego a couple pf weeks ago. There was all kinds of traffic on the 5 Fwy so I pulled off to get some food. I sat int he drive thru at that McDonald's there for 20 minutes totally oblivious tat there was a store there--well, now I know!! LOL
Ever After -- Carlsbad
Gotta love mega stores like this because you always leave inspired. At this point, I was pretty broke so I could not buy much--plus now I already have like every line of paper from this las CHA release! LOL
These ladies stayed open extra late, just for us. Gotta love that!! They had the BEST prices I have seen for the Tim Holtz storage items so I got TWO of those. And they had some fun make n takes--it is like the San Diego version of Auntie Amy's. Friendly, very stamp centered, and great prices. I will definitely be back there.
Again, they stayed open extra late just for us because we called. Love that!!! We got more of the Jenni Bowlin line we have been seeing and I finally found Ally's Wonderland paper line from SEI!!!! 20 stores and I finally found it at ONE!!! So that made my night. Again, they have the best prices on ribbon ever. And if you go, make sure to stop in their bathroom.
We tried to go to Scrapbook Corner Hemet because the girls I was with ahd not yet been there. We called and told the girl we were coming. She wasn't even sure how far we were or where Temecula was. So we decided to try to hit them up anyways. We were five miles away when we called again and she said she absolutely would not stay open for us. So now all those girls have to go back to Hemet--and we wasted about 35 minutes going even further east from all of our homes. We all got back to Fontana at 10pm and split off from there. I got stuck in this massive traffic on the 15 from an accident. I took a back way (which everyone thinks is closed because it was closed for the summer and was supposed to open Sept 15 but reopened last week, thank God!). I got home just before 11pm. So I am really tired.
But what an exciting few days! Tomorrow I will finish up my tour with Scrapbook Lounge, Stamp Your Heart Out, and then I need to get stamped at Scrappin' Good Times since I forgot when I stopped today. And then I am done!!! I'll post pics into the blog later--sorry but I have two classes this week to prep for!
