Went to Scrapbook Expo today
Pam and I went to the scrapbook expo in San Diego today. What a great day! We got there around 10:30 and started our shopping. By the time we were hungry, our totes were full, so we took our morning purchases to the car. We walked to the Subway in the Gaslamp Quarter and had lunch and were energized for the second half of the day. We filled our totes again! There was this really cool both with things for $1! I spent $36 in that booth alone. Got some really cool bottle caps there. I also got two Basic Grey packs today. I got the Hang 10 and Urban Couture. They are fab! Lessee, what was the coolest thing I got today??? Hmmm, I think it was the Lyra Aquacolors. These are wax-based crayon things. Check it out: http://www.storyboardtoys.com/store/lyra-watercolor-crayons.html You can use a water pen to brush across the crayon and color with it. It makes the most beautiful colors on the paper. You paint with them like watercolors. I got a pretty good deal. I paid about $16 for the set of 24. That's about 50% off. Pam and I came home exhausted. That means it was a really good day! It's really warm out tonight. Makes me want to pitch a tent in the backyard and sleep outside. Well, except for thte barking dog next door, I just might've done it. I'm off to put away my new toys. See you tomorrow, sports fans.
