Mike often travels to some pretty cool cities for his job, and of course there are many times those cities just happen to be home to some awesome stamping and scrapbooking stores. He is so sweet and such a good sport as he is always willing to go on the hunt for me :-)
And today was no exception!
He was in Las Vegas, so I sent him to find none other than "Viva Las Vegastamps!" I have ordered from them online before, and figured that since their website said they have an actual store, I should see if Mike could check it out.
I had seen a really fun card on SCS just a few days ago using a couple of Beatles stamps, and I knew I just had to find them. My brother Rich was the biggest fan of the Beatles that you could ever meet (seriously- no exaggeration here!) and I have been planning for some time to do a scrapbook about him and figured some Beatles stamps would be great to use.
I told Mike that, if possible, I would love 3 of the 4 on the list I gave him- not knowing what they might have in stock. I also listed some other various stamps that looked neat, just in case there were no Beatles stamps. After all, I certainly wouldn't want him to go to all this trouble only to come home empty handed ;-)
Honestly, I really didn't know what to expect.
Well, not only did he get me ALL of the Beatles stamps I had hoped for, but a few I didn't know about as well!
Aren't they cool?!
Mike said he actually had fun in there. He said it was a really great store- and that I would have been in my glory there. (Ya think?!)
He got joking with the other customers in there and told them that he knew "who" they were and what they were all about. He said that he has seen them sitting around his dining room table many times. They all got a kick out of it and had some good laughs and fun, while the very nice and helpful staff as well as customers helped him pick out my awesome gifts!
So... I think my creative plans for the weekend have changed. I *thought* I knew what I was going to be working on, but now I have some new rubbah to introduce to ink!!
Thank you, Mike! Gee- now that you know where Viva Las Vegastamps! is, you can go to Vegas on business any time! :-)
