i had THE worst time pronouncing the name of this town. lol
Polkadots and More is really cute! The classroom was nice and big and the customers were tons of fun.
whew! I finally get to sit down and blog about my fun stores!!!
i was in Bloomington IL on Monday July 9. This store is the sister store to Scrapbooking Studio in Moline.
This store was a ton of fun. They even showed up in dress code! Jennifer was the only brave soul. We’re bonded for life now 🙂
I taught classes at Scrapbooking Studio in Moline, IL on Sunday. What a GREAT store!! So much fun stuff. It was hard for me to get out of there. lol
What was even better about the store was the FABULOUS staff and the FANTASTIC customers. I had so much fun.
Thank you to everyone who took the classes and for making our day so WONDERFUL!
We spent all Day Saturday with Karen and her crew over at Daisy Lane in Mattoon, Il(Matt-Toon). Let me tell you it was an unexpected surprise. We knew it would be big but big does not quite describe this store. Daisy Lane is a beautiful country store filled with aisle after aisle of scrapbooking and craft goodies. along with a whole craft area of booths packed with beautiful handcrafted items. As I travel around the country I am so lucky to be able to meet so many new people and see such unique stores in each town. Thanks Again to Daisy Lane for having me at the store for a day of inky fun!
