A blog to share about Adrenal insufficiency, Addison's Disease, Aspergers Syndrome, Autism, Music, Inspiration, Scrapbooking and other elements viewed through the lens of my life. I'm hoping that others who are traveling this journey may find some commonality, and maybe some information and inspiration.

Junk Journal & Shopping

I did something unusual today. I went shopping. I usually avoid it
Ike the plague. But I've started a mini junk journal after taking the Got Glue? Class at Creative Passion, and I just felt like getting stencils and ink and other supplies. So I ventured forth to a local scrapbook store, then Ben Franklin, then a local stamping store. I didn't buy a thing at the scrapbook store, and the rest of the haul was a split between BF & the stamping store.

Here's my goodies:

I got quite a few things that weren't on my list but just inspired me. I also ended up having to order the stencils I wanted from Scrapbook.com. So I spent way more money than I intended, but that's OK. Part of the purpose here is to spend some good crafty time with my 10yo granddaughter who loves art. I bought her a little book to create in so we can do it side by side.

So odd for me to be buying physical supplies again. I only bought digital for quite awhile. But then this isn't for scrapping, or most likely won't be used for scrapping. It's just to play with in my junk journal. Hmm - I think I'll add the receipts to the journal. Hopefully I'll have time to play tomorrow.

And here is why I so seldom shop: that little bit ruined the rest of my day. I came home, needed several naps, and got a nasty headache. Pathetic! But I'm still happy with my purchases.
