A-Muse-apalooza was a blast!

Where to begin? This evening was at Artsy Tartsy in Plymouth Minnesota. LOVE this store!! There was a crowd waiting for the store to open at 7pm!! There were fabulous make-n-takes (thanks Tami Wood), there were prizes (thanks Tami and Julia), there was food and there were AMAZING NEW STAMPS!!! When we arrived we were given an Artsy Tartsy tote with a gift certificate to the store tied on with Strano Ribbon. Every detail was perfection! We had Pepperidge Farm Mint Milano cookies, beverages, chocolates, A Muse lollipops and a wide assortment of Cold Stone Creamery ice cream. Can you stand it!?

There were so many prizes!! My husband won stickers, paper and ribbon. I won the Grand Prize of a Caribou Coffee mug, a gift certificate for a drink from Caribou, ribbon and an A Muse stamp of the Polka Dot Mug!! How absolutely darling!! Tami you outdid yourself!!
Here's my new toys...

Here is Bekki, Tami, Julia and I (what a great group!)...

Here are the amazing make-n-takes (each one came with an envelope that we stamped)...

Looks like you had lots of fun. And all that new stash - wow!

Tami said...

Looks like you had fun! I wish I had an event going on where I live! I have to settle for getting my stamps at AC Moore if I want instant gratification (and they don't have a huge selection). I have received the majority of my images through the wish rak forum at scs! Tons to play with- I'm not taking my wish down in hopes for some new ones!

I saw that hula girl when I was shopping last and shouldn't have put her back, ugh!!
Sounds like a blast.
