My Jo-Ann Superstore Experience
-Jo-Ann Superstore- Experience the creativity.-
I'm so excited about this! Friday, I experienced the creativity! I went to the Jo-Ann Superstore for the first time and -WOW- what an awesome experience! I finally got some of my craft shopping done and I got some really great stuff!
Only a few more items needed and then I can officially get started on a project!
So, I got some Mod Podge and some brushes. I got a pack of small clothes pins and one large one. I also got two cute little jars and a small round cardboard box and a couple of flameless tea lights.
Next time, I need to remember to grab a cart. I was carrying way too much stuff and my arms got tired. I don't know why I didn't think to get a cart -duh!
We use to have a Jo-Ann's close by, it was not even 5 minutes away, that's if you were to drive to it. It was right down the street. It was a lot smaller and they didn't have a whole lot to offer. So, when my dad suggested it, I wasn't all that thrilled about going. I really wanted to go to Michaels, but I decided to give it a chance. I am so glad I let him talk us into it!
From the moment we stepped foot into that place, I was like a kid in a candy store. I would have gone down every aisle if I could have, but the store is so huge, it would take years. You would have to go a couple more times in order to get through the entire store.
Eventually, I had to get out of there, I got a little overwhelmed by all of the cool stuff I kept seeing. I spent under $20, had I stayed I would have just kept on going, and then I would have been really embarrassed at check out, because I wouldn't have been able to pay for it all.
This week my goal is to invest in a glue gun. I also need scrapbook paper, ribbon, glitter, paint, more jars and I saw some other things I might want to use.
I have a question regarding the tea lights though. I'm thinking I might put them at the bottom of some sort of jar, they won't fit in the jars I got, but I'll be getting some bigger ones. I'm wondering, how I would go about keeping it in place at the bottom of the jar? I don't think I'd want to glue it, because then I won't be able to turn it on or off. Any ideas?
Have you been yet? What did you think? Which do you like better Michaels, JoAnn's or do you like Hobby Lobby? I've not been to Hobby Lobby before. I'm thinking I might head over there tomorrow and see what it's all about.
I had so much fun! If you haven't been, you are really missing out on a truly amazing experience. I cannot wait to go back!
