Orlando Shopping Haul

Hello my crafty family and friends,

I am sharing my Orlando shopping haul while on vacation.  Although, I was sick (fever, cough and sore throat) I was on a mission to find some good deals and unique items that are not sold in Boston.   The first store we put in our GPS lead us to gated residential community and the house looked dim and suspicious so we keep on moving down the road.  My husband laughed at me all the way to the next location, now I had to convince him I did some research.

Our next stop was a store called Piktails.  My sister and I received a very warm welcome from the owner.  She was very helpful and allowed us breathing room to shop and offer to use her scrap space.  Her scrap space was lovely she had all three cricut machines, cartridges, cameo, grand caliber and more. Although, her supplies was a bit pricey I did find some great items.

Our next stop was Hobby Lobby.  It was my first time shopping HL in person.  Oh boy, did I love it and certainly paid the consequence of my cold symptoms.  My husband came in the store with me, but quickly realized I was in scrapping paradise and went back out to the van.  I believe if I was feeling better, I would have because more damage to the wallet..lol.

 Here is a mix of paper and cardstock from both stores.  I really love the weight and feel of Authentique cardstock.  I had to pick up this paper for Princess Tiana, its soo pretty

I am looking forward to creating new projects with my goodies.  I hope you come back and check it out as well. 

I hope you enjoyed, have a great day..

The Family that Prays together, Stays together

Hello my crafty family and friends,

My family vacation has come to the end, and we are headed back home.  We created some awesome memories and scrap able moments.  Although, our trip was plagued with a viral flu-like symptoms, we still had a great time.

I was able to do some shopping at Hobby Lobby and a store called Piktails and found some nice deals.  You know I have a scrappers heart, sick and all I was still trying to find that good deal..lol. I will post pictures or a video of my goodies tomorrow. 

On Sunday, we went to the House of Blues Gospel Brunch and it was an amazing All-You-Can Eat Buffet and Gospel Show.  They showcased an up and coming gospel artist from Tampa Bay named Paula Stevens-Jones and The Ambassadors of Praise, and a Christian Mime (Ministry) performance by Psalms 91.  The spirit was so high in there, I did not finish my food, I was too full off praising the Lord.  Here is a snippet of the performance. I have to say this was the highlight of my trip.

Our trip logo this year was “A family that Prays together, Stay together” and I am sharing with you all a group picture we took.
The Family that Prays together Stays together.
Well it is the end of the road for our family vacation, I am not sure will our trip will be next year, but God willing I hope we are all together where ever that may be.  We are praying for safe traveling today.  

Thank you all for allowing me to share my family vacation with you all.

I hope you enjoyed, have a great day.
