Another Shopping Trip

I went out again to feed my addiction. My "drugs" of choice are art supplies and embellishments, of course. It's funny how when I clean out and re-organize my work space I always seem to find more goodies to fill it up with. Oh well, I guess there are worse vices I could have. I finally found the book, Scrap City that I have been reading about. It is a book filled with edgy scrapbook and art journal pages. I like the diversity of seeing many styles of art instead of always just the same old mainstream, cookie-cutter types of work. It jump-starts my brain in new and different ways. I love the funky doodled tab stamps from Tia Bennett at Autumn Leaves. I am always a sucker for the tin boxes of stickers and labels from Cavallini & Co. This bird, nest and egg set is especially sweet. I finally found a store around here that carries Queen and Company brads. I had bought some ages ago when I was traveling and although I see them advertised in magazines, I could never find a shop locally that carried them. I love them because they are teeny-tiny and they have patterns on them (i.e. stripe, polka-dots, etc.) Very cool! I also picked up a couple bottles of the new Adirondack Acrylic Paint Dabbers from Ranger. They come in a ton of colors, so it was difficult to choose between them all. Now I am off for a little playtime!

I haven't heard about this new book you got, Scrap City, but it sounds like something I would love too. Must look for it.
