While I was out of town this past season my Dad wanted to take me to the stamping store. (I made a short post on it way back.) We went to the store but it was closed. Well, almost a month later my Dad and I gave it a second try and managed to get there when it was open. He encouraged me to fill a basket full of everything that I thought was me. Oh it was hard not to want everything but I'm a modest type of gal...so I only picked out a just a few items.
I had a great time looking things over, once, twice... you know taking it all in. In the mean while my Dad has laid his eyes on everything at least once. He had a couple of comments and questions about a few things. It was cute.
Anyhow, we met the owner and two of the regular papercrafters while we were there. They helped keep him company while I shopped and guess what? They are very cool and experienced ATC makers. I only have one and a half ATC's under my belt so they had some tips and shared with me their inspirations. I was even given some ATC's to swap. It was a wonderful visit. My Dad survived the stamping store and if you are ever in Salinas, California you need to visit The Stamping Bug. It's tops if you ask me!
