Exciting happenings....

These are not that exciting for anyone unless you happen to live in Greenwood, but this past week there opened BOTH a T.J. Maxx AND a Hobby Lobby.

I don't have to tell you how excited I am. The T.J. Maxx is seriously one of the nicest ones that I've been in. It has been so long since I've been in one, I had forgotten how much different stuff they have. I was excited to pick up a cute butter dish (I had been on the prowl for one for a while), some coconut flour (looked interesting), and another locking tongs to use in the kitchen.

And then there was Hobby Lobby..... My creative/crafty sense was on overdrive. Aisles and aisles of beautiful craft supplies and fabric. We already have an excellent fabric store in town, but it's nice to get a little bigger selection to choose from. And the ribbon! The ribbon selection was awesome. I picked up a wreath form and some styrofoam trees, thinking I'd make a book wreath like this or maybe like this. I'd really like to make a button tree as a Christmas decoration or maybe a twine tree? We'll see. As you can see, I'm already finding ways to fill up any free time I have with more craft projects.

Now if Greenwood ever got a Target, I'd never want to move...

I was in a Hobby Lobby for the first time in a long time just today! And with all the great decorative stuff they have at 50% off, I really wanted to spend money, but I didn't have any, so I'm just storing the ideas away for next time... But the store is really close to my house, so there's that! :)
