When was the last time you went shopping for craft supplies? For me, it had been a very long time! But when I was in Eugene, Oregon for a crop recently, we went shopping, and I had so much fun! Since I've been purging my supplies, I was very selective about what I picked up. I got some stencils, including some mask/stencil combos from Dina Wakley. I also found a wonderful tag pad with subtle backgrounds that I was really excited to play with. A few pieces of Studio 45 paper and a couple stamps completed my purchase. I was so proud of myself for being moderate.
On the drive home, we stopped for lunch and stumbled into a thrift shop that had some very interesting things. I got a "red" journal, some vintage photos and a Bible ABC book. The really, really cool thing about the ABC book:
It's in Braille! If you look carefully, you can see the bumpy pattern. I took out all the bible pictures and kept the textured Braille pages. I can't wait to see what fun I can create in it!
As I put these things away today, I was very inspired. It's great to purge supplies, but it's also great to buy some new things. Have you bought anything new and inspiring lately?
