Hot or what?

Ok, now that the weather report is over... Yesterday I drove up to Long Beach to meet up with a couple of ladies from the PaperCrafts message board. They were lovely ladies. We had lunch at Bubba Gump's Shrimp place. It was so funny... when they brought us the coasters for our drinks, we immediately scooped them up cuz they were cool enough to do something crafty with, and then when they brought my lunch (fajitas) the wrapper that the tortillas came in was so cool I asked for more of that, too. The waitress must've thought we were nutty. Oh well. I took the ladies little gifts: a jj stamp in a little bag. I made a tag out of jj stamps. After lunch, we went to the Fabric Barn. It's an old, OLD business on Anaheim Drive in Long Beach, about 4 miles from the restaurant. They had such cool stuff there. The pic with the three strands of ribbon... can't you just see that on that BG Urban Couture paper somewhere? That stuff was only 3yds/$1! I got all that ribbon and rickrack, a few wood pieces and flowers for $38. We need to make another trip up there just for the ribbon, ladies. It's self-serve. Most of it is 3-8yds for $1!
