Super Jo-Ann's!

Here you go, Sissy - Read it and weep, drool, whatever! This...
is the 2-story Jo-Ann Fabric & Crafts Superstore in North Dallas!

I intended to take another photo from upstairs (actually from the glass elevator), but alas, I was a little "preoccupied" and forgot!! I didn't even look at anything on the first floor. First floor was scrapbooking, floral, and other crafts. Second floor was fabric, quilting, sewing, and I think the framing department was up there.

This will be a ladybug themed blanket!

I wish I had gotten a better picture of the background fabric - it's really cute with whales, turtles, starfish, sea horses... sea themed. I thought these fabrics would make a good blanket for a boy or a girl, since all I've done so far has been more girly. Same thing with the alien fabric below.

The purple & flowers is to go with the girly fabric I've already been using. Note the ladybug!

Just another thing you'll be sorry you missed was thrift shopping! I think the most I paid for anything was $1.50! Once Upon A Child had a huge $1 section, and Super Goodwill was having a 50% off sale on everything. These are not very good pictures, but you'll get an idea of the good stuff I found! The pink skirt is Gymboree and the red dress if Ralph Lauren!

The graphic CAT!! dress is baby Gap and the smock is Ralph Lauren...

I think about half of these were Gymboree. The blue with hearts is a poncho.

Here's my biggest finds! The embellished jeans by baby Gap were 50c and the new with tags Gymboree dress was $1.25! The tag on the dress was $32!

Lastly was a cute pair of lightweight footies by Ralph Lauren in which Elizabeth looks adorable!!

Hmm іt appears like your site ate my first comment (it ωas super long) so I guess Ӏ'll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I'm thоroughly еnjoying your blοg.
I tоο аm an аspiring blog wгiter but I'm still new to the whole thing. Do you have any suggestions for novice blog writers? I'd definitely аpprесiate it.
