Sizzix Texture Boutique from Michaels near Dayton, Ohio

We are in Dayton, Ohio getting trucks going to Georgia. It was hot and very humid today.

After finishing most of our work Joe suggested a trip to Michaels for a larger, and more protected, craft tote. One of his trucks was being worked on and we had an hour to wait.

I found a rolling tote by Scrap Exchange.


I’ve been considering getting a Cuttlebug Die Cutting machine but there was not one to be found in Michaels. I did, however, find a Sizzix Texture Boutique.


Joe, ever inquisitive, said “What’s that?”. After I took it out of the box and hunted around through my new purchases for one of the two Cuttlebug Embossing Folders I purchased…I heard a loud exclamation of “Ouch!”. Looking to see how he had hurt himself (and I’m still guffawing) Joe was quickly extracting his pinky finger from the innards of the Sizzix machine. He won’t be doing that again anytime soon 😀

I gave the “What’s That?” man the task of cranking an embossing folder through the machine.

I am too tired to do any crafting tonight. Plus today was so hot and humid I think I sweated over ten gallons of water. Dinner is from a local grocery store. A meat and cheese plate for Joe. Fruit and yogurt for me. There is enough for both of us to share the feast of the season.



Tomorrow will be another long driving day. I am prepared to get crafty when the time allows.

Have a great evening. I’m going to bed.


I have an enabler of the First Order!

Just a quick post.

We are in Dayton, Ohio today. Getting ready to finish hooking up for our first of three loads to Douglas, Georgia.

Michaels has a coupon that ends today (6/16/12) for 50% off any one item. I mentioned to Joe last week sometime that I really need to get one of those expensive rolling craft tote/cropper hopper things.

I told him of the coupon ending today and he says “We need to find a Michaels”.

Gotta love my man 😀
