What is it about shopping on holidays that’s so fun? It’s almost like you’re on a pass and the money is free (Mr B just fainted) I love to meander through interesting shops in a new city. This ‘trip-treasure’ can get me into a wee bit of trouble as you saw here.
San Jose ‘Trip-Treasure’
Mr B (on rare occasion) has kindly claimed antique pots, perfume, christmas ornaments and the like :D He’s a good sport with a good book to read while he waits at places like ‘Paper Tales’ in San Diego. It’s a scrapbook/antique shop! Oh ya crafters, it’s the holy grail :D
On a holiday there, a couple of years ago, I bought a little book called, ‘Fortune Telling Book For Brides’. Not because I was a bride (well I was
once twice) and not because I knew of a lucky young woman planning her big day either. Any guesses?
BINGO, it was Aqua :D
It was just to cute to pass up, so I tucked it away with a plan to gift it to the first ‘Bride-to-be’ in my life. There are fun pages of retro artwork and information about what gift to buy for each anniversary. Oh, look! The 13th year is lace, good to know. Don’t you think Mr B will look funny in lace boxer shorts though? Hehe.
There’s even a section on your astrological compatibility. Mmmm, harness…feel deeply..got it!
Finally Luckily, one of my most favourite young couples have just got engaged! Congratulations Tina and Robbie! I now had someone I loved to send the little book to. But not before creating a special package in the Boom-Room.
Ever wonder what my favourite scrapbook products would be? Well honestly, the problem is I love just about everything. But I will say, these two items aren’t expensive and don’t take up any room on your craft table. I think they make your projects just a little more special. I have many, many Stickles, but this is my hands down favourite. What’s nice is, it won’t change the colour and Diamond Stickles adds a nice sparkle. Also, this fine tipped Gelly Roll pen by Sakura. You can write, trace and outline in fine glitter. Both are awesome! That’s an official Boomdee recommendation.
I already got a lovely note back from Tina giving me a heads up about a destination wedding :D Doesn’t that sound fab? It’s so wonderful when kids you’ve watched grow up from young, fall in love and plan forever together xo.
