Default Only a crafter could understand this

Yesterday morning as I was driving to work in NY right by the GW Bridge, I saw a truck pulling a trailer with the giant Stamp-N-Storage logo painted on the trailer. For a brief moment, my mind went blank...then I thought OMG the pop-up shop is nearby!! I pulled over (lest anyone think I googled while driving) and looked to see what the email and Facebook said. Sadly they were on their way to Massachusetts.

My dreadful confession is that while googling, I briefly considered how I was going to cancel/reschedule my patients to visit the pop-up shop if it was nearby.

I probably would've tried to flag down the truck!

I understand! They are coming to a scrapbook store very close to me on Monday and I love their products.

At least you have the assurance that you are part of the tribe.

Stamp-N-Store has pop up shops?!? I probably didn't need to know that . . .

I heard from Stamp-N-Storage...turns out the truck got lost briefly. (At least I wasn't hallucinating.)

This is different but I hope still fits in your “only a crafter would understand” category. Today I was at the kitchen sink and scraped cream cheese off of my knife onto a plate. “Texture paste!” I thought, and wondered what would work to get the black speckled look that the poppy seeds that fell off the bagel gave it.

Black microbeads mixed in white embossing paste could look like poppy seeds in cream cheese.

I was just thinking of speckled paste, not actually bagels, but now I want a bagel too!

(And black prills would make great poppyseeds. But what about sesame seeds? )

ETA Actually looked to see if any bagel places were open. Nope. But tomorrow a.m. I’ll be there!
