I ended up having a rather nice day, once I forced myself to get out of the apartment. It was filled with retail therapy.
this cowl/shawl I might make while the multicolored one is Misty Alpaca in colorway "Red Rover." I need bright, cheery colors to keep me happy these days.
After a late BBQ lunch, I headed over to the Michael's in Santa Monica to pick up some stamp making materials, to try out this online tutorial.
I then headed over to Barnes and Noble to kill time before going over to the Culver City crafters. While I went there looking for Euphamania, I found Walking LA, instead.
Finally, I met up with my friend, Josh, and we wandered into Bird Pick Tea & Herb Shop. There, we met Jennifer who walked us through the ins and outs of dozens of different teas. She was lovely and super helpful! We both went a bit crazy with our tea purchases and we couldn't be happier about it!
