The Mecca

Ok, so usually when I reference “The Mecca” I am talking about The Swamp.  The beautiful home of the Florida Gators…..Ben Hill Griffin Stadium.

But today, my friends, I am talking about a different Mecca.  The Mecca that is most relevant when it is not football season.


Oh yes.  You see, me and my fellow North Florida crafters have been deprived of a true crafting/sewing/decorating haven.  Sure we have Michael’s & Jo Ann’s but they are clear across town from each other.  And you know how that goes.  You have to go to Michaels to get certain things, and to Jo Ann’s to get other things.  It’s such a mission every time I have a project in mind. 

But ladies and gentlemen, I have good news. 

We finally have a Hobby Lobby!!!

I was right in the middle of writing my Wonderful World of Pinterest Wednesday post when I had the bright idea to Google to see when the store was actually going to open {I knew it was this month sometime}.  I called the number for the store and a cheerful lady answered and proceeded to tell me that THE STORE OPENED IT’S DOORS TODAY!!!!!!!!!  They finished early and the grand opening is today!!!!  Hallelujah!!!!!!!!

{cue angelic singing choir again}

Seriously, I about wet my pants I was so excited.  So, as soon as Emily wakes from her nap we will be joyfully perusing the aisles of our brand new Hobby Lobby!!!!!!  I am always seeing such neat things on people’s blogs from mirrors, to knobs, to scrapbook paper that they have purchased from Hobby Lobby and I’ve always been so jealous. 

Ok, can you tell I’m excited?

I’m going to go wrap up the Pinterest post now because I found some neat things there this week and I can’t wait to share! 

Stay tuned……

    Not sure if you had seen it or not, but felt it my duty to alert you in the event you have not, so that you can correct it!


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment. I read each and every one of them and work hard to respond to all of them that I can.
