111712 A Peculiar Date Day

Today the Deer Widows Weekend Scrapbooking & Stamping Show 
was right up the road at the Birch Run Expo Center. 
With only a 2 hour window to be gone from home it was a bit of a scramble.

This was Martha, one of the greeters! 
She really dressed for the occasion, lol

And every time I hit a scrapbook event, I run into my friend, Becky!
(I am really, really bad at selfies, btw...)

The crop area - with shopping right at your elbow.

Well, sometimes these hold-the-camera-as-high-as-you-can & 
hope-for-a-decent-shot photos don't exactly do the subject justice. 
This is just a small sampling of the smorgasbord of scrappy goodness.

This was totally my favorite booth - 
all the yummy stuff: Prima, 7 Gypsies, Jenni Bowlin...

My haul - some older stuff but all inspiringly good deals.

My fave? These charming ladies! I have the PERFECT photos to use these with - 
some fashion shots my mom had taken when she was, if I remember correctly, 19.

I'm tempted to send one to the first 3 comments left on this post - 
email your snail mail addy if you're interested!

My knight in shining armor/chaffeur hung out with a Starbucks double caramel macchiato 
and some magazines while I was shopping, then off to Menards to look at 
anagalypta wallpaper for the kitchen ceiling & E6000 to repair some broken china. 
Take out lunch from Red Lobster rounded off our date day!


  1. What a great day out and so nice of G to patiently wait in the car for you! I have those same JOY chipboard letters. Looks like you found some awesome goodies and those fashionista silhouettes are FAB!

  2. AMAZING HAUL, my friend!!!! Love every bit of it and that event looks like SOOO much fun! Thanks for sharing the pics with us!

  3. WOW, you sure had fun! What a cool event to be able to attend. Loved all the treats you got, and so fun that you always run into the same friend when you go!
    You got some great deals. Awesome LOL. :) Looks like we're in a Lain group together again for an upcoming class- so much fun (YSYL)! Have a wonderful day!
