Our end-of-May bank holiday weekend was a wet, windy, miserable one. I took that as an opprotunity to try to finish up some of the half-dozen unfinished scrapbook projects that have been nagging at me for years.
After completing a baby album for our friend’s 1 1/2 year old ‘baby’ I moved on to getting caught up in my Christmas album. 3/4 of the way through the baby album I had exhausted most of the end bits of my photo adhesive so Monday morning I went into the craft store in Reading, hoping to find adhesive and a couple of papers for my Christmas album.
In the store, they had probably 10 aisles of papercraft items, a good sign! But, alas, quantity does not mean quality. I would rate the selection somewhere around the quality of what you could buy in the States in 1995. Odds and ends of papers, a hodge-podge of stickers, most of wich looked like things you’d see up as wall decoration in a nursing home. ICK! I got a roll of adhesive and got out of there as quick as I could before it rubbed off on me.
Holli informs me that she stocks up in the States. Add one more stop to my Seattle shopping list…
