Must brag about my weekend

So, how would you like to shop in this Heidi Swapp room?

Or choose paper from this beautiful display!
Well, I got to! This shop is the By Design Scrapbook Boutique in Houston, Tx. It is really far from my house but I was down in the area and told my husband and out of town friends that we had to go to this store I'd seen online. (The guys just finished parasailing so of course they agreed!) The store is so beautiful and inspiring. I just loved looking at everything. There is a beatiful room for husband's to wait in and the room for cropping and classes would blow your mind. You can see the pictures if you click HERE. So, what did I buy? Not too much. I'm on a budget since I just bought my starter kit for stampin' up but I got some great Heidi Swapp chipboard (I really love her products and she has a new line coming out. You can see it on the By Design Blog), some cute green and red polka dot May Arts ribbon and some tags that go with my BasicGrey paper. All of these things were put in a white gift bag printed with black flourishes and stuffed with pink tissue paper. I felt like I just bought a huge supply of awesome things instead of my $7.50 worth! Anyway, if you are in the Clearlake area you should stop by. It is a truly inspiring store and I met the owner, Tracy, and she is so nice and kind, I'd make the drive just to visit with her again!
Here is our friend Johnny (or is it Brett?) Parasailing. They both really enjoyed it. We had a great time with our friends from Dallas. Welcome to 30 Trace and I'm so glad you came!


  1. What a fun time we had, Johnny and I were so encouraged, we've already purchased the "Mexican Train" game.

  2. Looks like a wonderful time ya'll had. Isn't it great to get together with old friends? Tell them we say hi next time you chat.

  3. How fun! Sorry I haven't kept in touch lately. Settled in more and having fun catching up on my blog reading.
