11  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Traveling Little Visitor Swap Round 25 Gallery on: August 03, 2017 03:16:45 PM
Apparently last week was all about questionable food choices.  Roll Eyes  On the way to dinner a friend and I stopped in to see another friend in his shop.  I had Clara all set up on the tire, but he wanted to be in the picture.  Not a problem, but after the Roto Rooter guy I was a little gun shy about asking men to be in the picture.


After we left there we went to Crown Candy for dinner.  It's a candy shop and soda fountain that has been in business since 1913.  I had the heart-stopping BLT with cheese and a chocolate marshmallow shake.  They use homemade ice cream - so good!


DH and I were out at estate sales, and we stopped in at Lubeley's Bakery for some breakfast.  It was founded in 1937 and has moved a couple of times, and they're now located on Route 66 (called Watson Rd. for that stretch).  I've passed this place often, but it's the first time I've actually stopped in.  I would definitely like to try some of their other desserts.


And just to prove that sometimes I go to places that aren't food related, here's a picture of a fire break in rural Missouri.  Sorry for getting part of the car in the shot, but I was on a curve without a shoulder and had to stop as briefly as possible.

Question to the seasoned visitor swappers: when do you normally start printing photos and working on the scrapbook?
I always wait until the last minute.  Mostly this is so I can pick and choose which photos to print and put in the scrapbook.  I end up with a lot of pictures, and I include all of them on discs so my partner can see all of them.  Scrapbooking isn't really my "thing" as people who have received one will attest!  Wink

Oh, PFD, I'm so sorry you are having to deal with this!  It was bad enough when I read they took 12 vials of blood (were you starting to wonder if you had any left in you? LOL), but when I continued on I really felt bad.  The surgery alone is scary enough, but adding income worries in the mix the whole thing becomes downright frightening.  I'm a dancer dealing with a stress fracture in my right foot, but it hasn't interfered with my job.  I can't even think of anything to say that doesn't sound shallow or trite, but please know I'm thinking of you.  Kiss

Love the old architecture!  I'm always awed by the time and skill it took to create old buildings like this.

Glad they will work for you! 

For a couple of people I had a hard time deciding where on the fabric to cut.  Darker?  Lighter?  Some of both?  When in doubt I sent the whole scrap, so some of you are getting DIY squares.  Wink

This past weekend we were in Clarksville, TN.  We passed through Cairo, IL.  Same name but not quite the same trip Anana got, though.  Wink


It rained part of the time, but it was still a nice view from the hotel.


On the more mundane side of life we spent a half day at the mechanic's.  New brakes and rotors - how's that for excitement?

Yikes!  Cardstock does sound like a good idea now.  Shocked
