After finishing this card, Mike & I decided to take advantage of the beautifully sunny day and go out for a drive and do a bit of shopping. It was still quite cold, but oh so sunny! We drove around the city and went to the Ikea store on the southwest side. I LOVE Ikea! They have so many innovative storage ideas. But man oh man that store is HUGE!
My main purpose for going was to get a Bygel rail and the hanging storage buckets that go with it for the front of my desk in my craft room. Here is a photo:
I located the Bygel rail easily enough...but could not find the buckets anywhere. All they had were three of them tacked to the display wall...bummer! We asked staff and they looked at us as if we were aliens and had no idea where to look. So I came home with none! :(
I did however find these oh so neat storage boxes that perfectly fit my embossing folders and my framelit dies. They are called "Skubb Design Monika Mulder boxes-$11.98. They are designed for organizing socks etc in your drawers and closets, and are heavy plastic covered in durable nylon. They are available in black, white or lavendar. . They came in a pack of six; firstname.lastname@example.org" x5.5", email@example.com" x 11", and 2@ 11" x 11" Here are a couple photos of how I used mine:
In case you are wondering, I store my framelits in their envelopes but on a piece of magnetic sheet so they don't get bent or lost.
We also picked up a couple of laundry baskets, some nice heavy glasses,a scrub brush, and a can opener for the trailer....oh I cannot wait until the three feet of snow melts and we can get out to the trailer for a visit!
We decided to go for lunch while we were there. Let me just say the choices are....strange...egg salad and shrimp sandwiches(together)- who does that? Anyhow we went with the most normal looking item fish and chips with a side of 5 meatballs as hubby wanted to know what all the hype was about.
Well let me tell you.....don't do it.....do not eat at Ikea....in a word GROSS! I should have gone with my gut feeling and just had coffee and a cinnamon roll. Waste of $20.00 and a stomach ache to boot!
After Ikea we went to a couple of local craft stores in search of a "glitter magnet" It picks up loose glitter. I could not find one, so I am going to have to look online. After last Thursday's card class, we need a glitter magnet- there was glitter everywhere!
Well off to creating more cards for swaps in my craft room today. See Ya!
