Hi Ladies, haven't been on this thread in a while. Just wanted to pop in and say I was born and raised in Yazoo City. Just down the road from Jackson, Madison and Canton. Used to do all my shopping in Jackson. My husband is a musician and he plays on Wed. nights at Mugshots on Lakeland Drive. Good luck with the job search.

are there any good lss's in shreveport??? the stores here are really small and limited and i ususally go to hobbly lobby or michaels.




There is a nice store off Mansfield Road going toward Mansfield, LA. It is called "Lisa's Angels In The Attic". I came to know the owners and they are so sweet and HELPFUL too! If anyone ever wants to meet me there I would be HaPpY to meet up with anyone that scraps in the area and actually MEET YOU IN PERSON! I don't have anyone to scrap with... which is why I hardly go to Lisa's on crop nights..I don't like going alone!

Lived there all my life then got married and moved to Belzoni (just down the road) but continued to work in Yazoo City. Moved to NO in 1998 and then to the Northshore in 2004. Last time I was in Yazoo City was for my Mom's funeral in 2004. Doesn't seem to have changed much over the years.

Any of you from MS ever go to the craft day in Canton, MS? My daughters and I went for about 5 years but did not get to go last year because of my sister's illness. It is always lots of fun. The entire center of the town shuts down and vendors from all over set up booths along the streets and around the courthouse square. We always went in October but it is also held in May.

Robin's Spirit,

I am eager to visit the shop you mentioned near Mansfield Rd., but I don't seem to get to Shreveport without my DH and I want to visit when I don't feel rushed that he is waiting in the car! Maybe soon... I live north of Ruston just south of the Arkansas state line and shop in both Shreveport and Monroe.

Hi Ann,
My parents were exhibitors for many years at the Canton Flea Market. I hated going! LOL! Maybe if I had been on the shopping end of it instead of the working end......

I've been to the Canton event a few times ... both as a customer and working with my parents ... and had fun doing both. Unfortunately, I haven't been in a while.

Someone mentioned Hinds Community College. I believe some type of Scrapbook event is held there. Maybe it is Crop Connection???

Just got an email this week from The Scrap Shack in West Monroe announcing that they are closing by the end of July. They will be having a sale of all remaining stock and fixtures during the next few weeks. I am really disappointed because they were so conveniently located and were such nice ladies to shop with!

ooo...people who live in towns I know! People who won't think it's gross to eat crawfish!

Grew up in south la, on the west bank, went to VOL and ABHS, which shut down this year, moved to Ruston to go to Tech, then my parents moved near Baton Rouge, I bought a house in Shreveport 3 weeks ago. I personally hate Shreveport, I'd rather live in Ruston, or near New Orleans. But I do love the town we live in and the house we bought.

Who knows Latechscrapper09, they might open one up in the shopping area by Lowe's. Is anything open there yet? What's your major? I went to Tech from 1999-2005, graduated in '03 and '05. I miss that place. Not the work, but the trees and squirels.

When I moved to Ruston there was nothing but Walmart. The day I left the sign for Applebee's went up. I stopped in the middle of the service road and cursed. In case you didn't know, since we didn't till a few years ago, the movie theater at the mall is only $2.50 (used to be $2) during the day and they have the big movies at midnight the night they are released.

Do you have an address? I have no idea where Mansfield Road it. If it's not on Airline, then I'm clueless. But I have a GPS which can get me almost anywhere.

That is from my house to Orange, Tx. HOW COOL IS THAT! I can drive that far! Girl... we will have to get together before I go back to work. Maybe even meet half way and have lunch!!!

They are so personal in their store and LOVE to visit with folks! Once you get to know them you will love them!! Carol is the Mom and Nancy is the daughter.

We always went during the day or at midnight-don't remember a problem though-it sucks it's getting bad. The one is Ruston was open before I left, but they have higher prices. We could go to Monroe, get food, go to a movie and books-a-million. But we went to number of them in Ruston (I got a $100 gc right when they opened) if we wanted to see at movie at moment's notice.

I miss Ruston, everything I wanted, within 5-10 min. Now I have to plan my trips and combin them, no running to water because I'm out of milk. Oh well, had to grow up sometime. Have fun at Tech!

Robin's Spirit, thanks for the address.

Hey you Louisiana scrappers... have any of you gone to the scrap store in Texarkana or the one in Longview, Tx??? They are BOTH fabulous scrapstores and are HUGE in supplies! Especially the one in Longview. If anyone wants the store name and address I have it. It also has a website... but I'm not sure you can buy from the website...but you can see photos of the store and how much they offer. They also have wonderful classes and crop nights!!!

Ok.. the one in Longview is called "Scrapbook `N Such". Here is the website link. It will show you photos of the inside of the store when you click on "Pictures" on the left side bar. OMG! It takes me hours on ened just to look at EVERYTHING in the store! Browse around... http://www.scrapbooknsuch2.com. The actual address is: 1905 W Loop 281 #74 Longview, TX 75604 and phone number is: (903) 297-9555

You can go to www.mapquest.com and get directions on how to get to it. It is not hard at all from I-20. It's about an hour away from me from my house to the store.

Hey ya'll, I'm from Louisiana, too! Thought I'd say "hi"!

I live in the northeast corner, West Carroll Parish. We have nowhere to shop for s/b stuff here - our new WM is a joke.

I was in Monroe on the 9th - dd had an orthodontist appt. - and found the scribbles alphabet clear stamps for less than $15 at Target! I have been wanting them for weeks, but couldn't find them for less than $28.00. I LOVE a bargain! I do shop at M's and HL sometimes, but most of my shopping is done online.

This is very strange weather for Louisiana. I love that my grass is green for a change, but I can't keep up with the mowing! Well, I guess you can't have it both ways!

I'm kinda new to SB.C and also to LA. Moved here in Oct. from NV (Elko/Vegas) and now live in Luling. I'm looking for others in my area who scrap, who know of LSS (other than Micheal's, Joann's or the new coming Hobby Lobby). Are there ever any group crops, conventions, classes or anything good like that near here? I miss all that in Vegas - all the LSS, crops and yearly conventions. So anyway, I'm looking to make some local friends - so please PM me. You can learn more about me at My Place, or on the link below my signature that takes you to my blog. TFL! Hope to meet and talk with some of you soon!

Hi Angi,
Welcome to sb.com and Louisiana! I live on the North Shore between Folsom and Franklinton. There is an upcoming convention in Mandeville in September. It's called Scrapfest. They usually only have it in March but for the first time this year they decided to add one in September. There were so many people clamoring for it! I plan on going. If your interested you can go to www.scrapfestproductions.com and check it out. I don't think there are any sb stores on the westbank but there are two that I know of in Metairie. One is called Scrapasaurus and I can't remember the other one. LOL! You can google it I'm sure. Can you believe there is no HL in the NO area?????? Two Michael's though. There are several sb stores on the Northshore. Scappily Ever After (Mandeville), Scappin' Buds (Slidell) and Scrapbook Heaven in Bogalusa. I know those are probably getting a little far for you but you never know when you might want to take a road trip!

Hey, Lynn! Great to see you on the forum! Been wondering where you were. Keep checking your "My Place" for new photos, etc.

Found a new scrapbook store in West Monroe (Scrap Shack that I told you about before is closing). This one is Memories of Yesterday. They have tons more of everything and lots of the newer product lines that aren't in HL and Michaels. If you are coming through the area, PM me and I'll get you directions. It isn't right on the interstate but not hard to locate, either.

Have a great weekend!

Hi Ann,
I guess that I have been spending too much time on my photo blog and the weekly challenges. I've definitely neglected my sb.com page. I guess because my scrappin mojo has gone south. I'm trying to get back into a scrappin groove but it's coming veeeerrrryyyyy slowly. LOL! (still collecting stuff of course). I'm supposed to be coming to Shreveport this weekend but that hasn't been confirmed yet. But I probably will not come up that way. Maybe next time. Never a bad time to check out a new sb store!
Hope you have a great weekend too!
Lynn

Baton Rouge has at least 2-3 stores...one on Perkins right off I-10, one on Coursey Blvd (I think) and another down Florida Blvd away from downtown toward Hammond. I've been to the 1st two I've mentioned and they are pretty nice stores!

HTH,

Hey, not sure it ya'll know or not but there's Coupons online for the Louiaiana Boardwalk. I found them awhile ago and tonight dh said he needed a new pair of shoes. So I googled to find the list.

http://www.louisianaboardwalk.com/saving.htm

Click on the book and you'll get a pdf of the Coupons . Some good ones, buy one get one free, 10% off, 20% off, ect.

Also it's tax free weekend next weekend (I think). I know some stores at the boardwalk are doing it and walmart.

Hey, does anybody know of any good s/b stores in the Tioga area? I'm thinking of making a road trip one weekend with my mom to visit relatives.

It rained here last night, and all the farmers are wanting to get in the fields to cut corn!

we didn't get any rain. I would LOVE a nice day of good rain. My garden needs it. I have to water almost daily in this heat. At least the heat was delayed this year. June and july weren't that bad.

I only do yard work at night, like around 8pm. otherwise, it's too hot me!
