Felt really fed up and bored with work today...decided to hop over town for some time alone amongst the crowd (if that makes any sense), and prolly some retail therapy. Guess that always works.
I dunno why, but just walking alone is therapeutic in some ways, to me at least. Its the feeling of getting lost among the buzzing thoughts of people all around you...organized chaos type of theory.
Sort of miss MT lately, and whaddya know, couldn't believe i missed this little store in Wheelock after passing by so many many times. Laine's Papeterie is definitely as sweet on the inside as it is on the outside. Forgot to bring my cam, but who cares, you gots to drop by to see the wonderful stuff init. It's a scrapbook institute(!) and stocks everything from covers, craft tools, paper prints (obvs), trinkets to decorate, lots of quaint little ideas just bouncing off the shelves. I love buying prints everytime i spot them, coz you never know when you're gonna need them for prezzie's, notes, or just decorating. And it is definitely easy spending money here. Even spotted some nice paper punch.. gotta get some on the next visit.
Bought some prints and painted clips. now, i just just need to get off my butt to start on those gifts...
