I had fun today – spent lunchtime at Cappel’s, just wandering around. Cappel’s always has everything for crafts, holidays – lots of stuff we’d never think of on our own. And so it is with Christmas.
I was thinking mostly of bags to put presents in, big bows for the porch railing, tissue paper. As it turned out, I found some actual presents as well. A smallish sign said to go upstairs – 2 aisles of Christmas, nothing over $5. Lots of fun up there – particularly for my son who loves blue and my daughter-in-law who loves purple. Their son likes maroon – and I found some maroon stuff for him.
I just wandered around, filled up 3 baskets with happy stuff, and only spent about $60. Plus I found everything I was looking for!
Staple’s also had some fun holiday writing paper – plus magnetic note pads, tissue paper and bags for the season. So I think I’m pretty well set in that department.
And now that that’s done, I’m going to actually make my lists for each person, and go over all the stuff I’ve bought so far this year – which is spread out all over the bed in the guest room. I’ll bet I’m nearly done with all my shopping, and now can just have fun wrapping and sharing. Hurray!
