It’s no secret that the arts and crafts side of my brain has been alive and well lately. So well that it inspired an inaugural trip to Hobby Lobby, a national craft superstore chain that somehow missed NY. I thought I’d just go in and look around…then maybe just hold on to a few items for consideration…then take a few of them to the register…then this happened:

This was about 3 hours and 20 cards later. It was like Pringles…once I popped I just couldn’t stop. (It was also during the Broncos/Raiders game, and I had to avert my eyes from the wreckage on the screen to keep my retinas from detaching in an act of self-preservation.) Really, all of the craftiness welling up inside of me had to come out somehow. Hallmark was apparently the theme of the expression. It worked though! I finally feel like my itch to make something has been scratched.

In other news, it SNOWED here yesterday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yes, that’s right: Packers victory over Brett & Co. and the first snow of the season, all in one 24 hour period. A more magical day has never been known.
