Yes Carol - it would be amazing if I knew your friend! It's a small world tho and nothing would surprise me!
There used to be so many neighborhood sbing stores in the Dallas area and now almost all of them are gone. Now it's just Michael's, Hobby Lobby and Joann's for us to find our goodies. I truly miss getting to know the shop owners, popping in to find the items I needed for a certain layout and going to crops to meet other scrappers. (Sigh)
