The better half went to Vegas again for their yearly trade show event. I look forward to these trips of his because then, I can get him to bring stuff from the US that I always hesitate to shop online because of the exorbitant shipping costs and unreliable postal services.

Taking into consideration his airline luggage allowances and the loads of official stuff he had to bring back this time, he did manage to get me some supplies too – the sweetheart that he is 🙂 . No yarns though, sadly, except for a bundle of mini cotton yarns by Lion Brand. But those are really tiny! Not much one can do with just one pack.

But he did get me some clasps for the heart-charms that I had made reading crochet charts, lots of buttons, some metal charms, safety eyes, Mod-Podge Matt and Gloss, Stiffeners for my doilies and some tiny seed beads.

And guess what I did with a few of the flower buttons shown on the bottom left corner! I brightened up a plain black top that I owned 🙂


After Vegas, he had taken a trip to San Francisco as well to tour around and sent me these 2 pictures that he took near Fisherman’s Wharf :


Feels grand knowing I’m thought about on his trips 🙂
