I'm with Homemaid. I have to drive about 35 miles to hit a Hobby Lobby. Clear to Kansas City (about a 3 hours drive) for an Archivers. BUT, I do it often.
I love the paper and the embellishments and the inks and paints and....well, you know. I'm like a squirrel, stashing everything away. And like Henri Jean, I spend a lot of time organizing it...it's part of the obsession!
First it was the local sb stores, then websites. I can't go to the C H A but there is a scrapbook convention & a sb expo every year where I live and I save up for going wild at them. Yes, I be a paper & embellishment junkie. Gotta get my fix!
Uhmm, I just started and so guilty. I have spent hundreds of dollars since December and my obsession is anything Tim Holtz, however I will say his retractable craft blade was terrible in my opinion so I took in back and got the Martha Stewart utility knife. Much sturdier. Outside of that I love all of his other products and to make things worse I can walk across the street to one of the bigger "hobby" stores!
I'm guilty !! But since there are no stores in my area i am a compulsive online shopper..And of course all the best stores are in the states so i fork out just as much on shipping and duty as i do on products..
