My Shopping Trip

So after having a bit of a rubbish week last week I decided I needed cheering up a bit! Today I went on a proper shopping trip to Crafts U Love and The Craft Barn for some retail therapy. I have never been to either of these shops before and it took about 45 mins drive to Crafts U Love then another 30 mins to get to The Craft Barn. It was really nice going to some proper craft shops. Where I live there is only 2; one in a department store selling Do Crafts stuff and another really small one (which is packed full though). I thought you may like to see what I bought ... (I have left the pic small so you can click on it for a better view)

It was strange going into Craft U Love (good strange though) after having been a customer of their online shop for so long it was strange walking around it! It was a bit of a long drive but worth the journey, what a lovely shop!! Lovely customer service and I could have spent all day in there (and spent a fortune too!). The Craft Barn was lovely as well, managed to pick up some Prima Flowers and they have TONS of paper! What I really liked about both shops was that they had loads of handmade cards all along the walls which was really nice.

I will be back tomorrow will some cards!
