So Many Stores So Little Time

I was lucky enough to have the day off of work on Friday so I decided to go check out some of the stores nearby. Of course I wasn't going to waste the day cleaning or finding homes for those last few things, nope had to check out some of the stores. I moved from a hamlet, remember, there weren't really stores there.

Anyway, in my travels, I found a great little scrapbook store nearby. I am in heaven. It's like ten minutes away. Yikes!

It's called Scrap and Bean and the owner is really nice and has classes and neat projects all over and she serves yummy coffees as well (hence the bean portion of the store's name).

Plus, their website is really detailed!

Check it out.

I got a few cute little things. They carry Riff Raff Designs, which are a pretty great company that I've only seen here in Edmonton. They make these laser cut chipboard pieces that almost look like wood or something much sturdier, because they're cut so precisely. Very cool.

On Saturday, I'm going out with a friend and fellow scrapbooker to check out some other stores. Can't wait! And one day, I might actually sit down and scrap. I got some neat goodies for Christmas I can't wait to play with.

Hope you're all enjoying 2009. So far, I think it will be a good year!

The Scrap and Bean is a nice little store. I was there for the volunteer kick off of CSC4K.

Hope you enjoyed the tour around of the scrapping stores in Edmonton! They are fun!
