11  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Traveling Little Visitor Swap Round 25 Gallery on: August 14, 2017 03:27:34 PM
*squee!* I may or may not have made a special mid-Friday afternoon trip over to the new Cost Plus World Market in Clearwater after hearing they had gotten Clearly Canadian in stock!!!

As I have not had it since it was discontinued in the 90's and since previously, the nearest store was 120 miles one-way away that had it, I was just a little excited to see all those lovely blue bottles on the shelf.

(I drank a Mountain Blackberry tonight and it was just as awesome as I remembered it.)

Ah...nostalgia.  Cheesy
Wait, is that the stuff that has no artificial sweeteners?  If so, that's what I used to love!  It seems all the flavored waters now have Nutrasweet/aspartame in them, so they're off limits for me.  I was so disappointed when I couldn't find the drinks with just regular sugar.

I was in Sedalia, MO for a quick weekend.  I'm lucky to have gotten this picture of the state fairgrounds on Friday evening, because it rained buckets the rest of the weekend.


Some friends introduced me to a new discount fabric shop about 45 minutes to an hour away.  I was so good there, but at $2.49/yard it was difficult (for those of you who don't sew fabric is routinely $8-$15/yard).  I've been wanting to try a stack & whack quilt, and at those prices I decided now was the time.  I picked up the Christmas fabric to give it a go.  Here's Clara with my fresh kill from the hunt.  Wink


My cousin and his family live in upstate Illinois, but they were recently in town.  Here they are making a centipede raft in the pool.  Turns out ducks like to swim - who knew?  Cheesy


I got to visit with a friend who moved to New Mexico several years ago, and she had her new-to-me triplets with her.  Man, are they busy little individuals!


Lastly, we went to a Gateway Grizzlies (Frontier League) baseball game.  We were all excited to see the Weinermobile there. Clara might be hard to spot, but she's perched in the cutout on the right.

Here's what I got from Immaculata.  So much fun; thank you!

No worries on the lateness as far as I'm concerned.  It just means I have more squishy mail to look forward to.  Wink

I love seeing all the different fabrics everyone sends, so fun. Smiley
Me, too.  The really cool thing is that I would say less than five are duplicates of fabrics I already had!  Some are the same prints but different colorways, and I smile when I see them.

PFD, did you consider the chicken statue as a recliner?  I'm thinking you could ride it backwards with your back against it's neck.  It would be both a comfortable and stylish addition to your living room I'm sure!  Grin  Shocked

And met some interesting people:
LOL this is probably my favorite understatement of the day!  That does look like it was a fun time, though.  The ren faires around here are all daytime things; no camp outs that I know of.

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.

Squishy mail is the best!  I received this package from aspenwall yesterday:


and this one from Averia today:


Thank you both!

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
