No, I won't be going back to joanns for a while, every time I go in there I get into it with them over something that is supposed to be on sale... just tired of arguing with them, and they get so rude... there were a couple stores around here, but they've both closed in the past 2 years. So, it's Michaels in Charleston or AC Moore in Huntington or online... wish there were a smaller place around here!

Ahhh- i do remember the Joanns there being pretty small and not much stuff- but I still spent about $200. It was my first time with brads, eyelets and so many sticker options. Then we hit Michaels- in South Charleston- I spent the same thing there-- I took an empty suitcase home, just for the occassion.

My summer's going... quickly! I'm a full time student at WVSU, so I am on summer break. I also have a 2 year old and I work midnights, so I hardly have any time to scrap and it's driving me crazy! I did manage to go to a crop last weekend and got 13 pages done How is your summer going?

Yep... 13 pages in just under 10 hours, but I had at least 1 patterned paper and at least 1 cardstock paired with 2-3 pictures... all I had to do was put the stuff together and do my journaling.
I'm in the "pre-nursing" program... last semester I had computers, biology, math, and speech... this semester I'll have microbiology, anatomy and physiology, psychology, and lifespan development. After next spring I'll have all of my pre nursing classes done and (if accepted) I'll start the nursing program fall '07.
No, I'm not originally from Charleston. I grew up in Michigan and moved to Tennessee when I was 17, then on to WV when I was 23... been here for 5 years now.
I would love to go to Russia (then again, I think I'd go anywere...) you'll have to post some pics. How long will you be there?
