First of all, I want to thank you for the warm wishes for my mother's recovery. She came through her surgery just fine and was back home the same day. Today she was up changing the placemats on her table, so I think she's doing pretty well.... It wasn't quite as cold today, got up into the 20's here in Wisconsin, I think it was in the 40's at home in South Carolina. I haven't seen my husband in almost three weeks so I just want to tell him (when he reads this) that I miss him. I'm not usually very "lovey dovey" so I think he will be in shock with my last statement.
Being away from home, the only form of entertainment that I have is of course, my computer and shopping. I go out every day to scower the back aisles of the stores to see what I can find. I have scavenged some really great deals on my trip and I made my first haul video today with my camera but as per usual there;is a problem.....I only have a compact flash card reader for my laptop and my Canon G10 uses an SD card so I can't upload it. It was fun to make though...shaky...you will probably need dramamine to watch it.
Today, I went to Hobby Lobby and used a coupon on my iPhone. Yes, there is an app for that....it's called "Yowser" or "Yowzer"...it downloads coupons from certain stores that you can show the cashier and use them like paper ones. Hobby Lobby is one of the participating stores.... I loved it...I felt so "technologically with-it". On my haul today, I got a bunch of Christmas ornaments that I'm going to take apart to use as embellishments on cards and mini-albums. I used my coupon for some Aidorondak alcohol inks..my total bill was only $15.00.
I have so many projects to do when I get home....Super Bowl Party invites for my mom and some sympathy cards (not my favorite but necessary).
Speaking of spending money...Have you guys found any really good deals online?? Let me know...
I just found out that the stampTV's GinaK's retail store is near Madison, Wisconson and I plan to visit that later in the week....along with other scrapbook stores in the city....I've just about exhausted the stores in this town...gotta branch out!!
