Minot, ND

One of the best parts about living in Bienfait (by Estevan) is that I am only about 1 1/2 hours from Minot, ND. Sooo, my parents came from Melville, SK on Saturday and I went with them to Minot. Well, I think that me and my Mom hit the jackpot. Any Canadian knows how expensive stamps are here. We also know that it is hard to find nice stamps and usually you have to order the really great ones from the States anyways.

Well, when I went into Hobby Lobby (my first trip to this store by the way - it's kind of new in Minot) I found that all their stamps were on sale for 1/2 price. Their scrapbook paper was also on 1/2 price!! Mom and I couldn't believe our luck...we just had to load up. Take a look below, I took pictures of some of my new treasures!!

I am SO jealous! With the dollar so strong right now it would be great to be able to head over the border to stamp shop but I think it's about a 4 hour drive from here....

OH MY GOODNESS!! God just happened to send you a nice blessing that day didn't He?? :)
That's fabulous. I live in the boonies--small town and have to drive about 1 hr. one way to get to the scrap stores (the big ones anyway) there IS a Walmart about 1/2 hr. With 2 little kids, I rarely go that far. That's great that found all those great items--at 1/2 OFF!! :)

Too much fun! I never knew that House Mouse stamps came in acrylics. Have fun with your new goodies.
