I shall go on dreaming.......

The first time my Sister-in-law, Eli, who is in the US, first mentioned that the JoAnn store is just a bus ride from where she is staying, I got all excited and breathless reading her email! LOL!


Now, with my SIL's recent posting at her photoblog, I am all excited and breathless again looking at all the photos she posted of the inside of the shop filled to the brim with all those great crafting stash! I wish I was there now with her! I know I would get so excited and probably pinching myself again and again to make sure that I wasn't just dreaming. But, alas, for now, I REALLY AM ...... JUST DREAMING ....... *sigh* LOL! *wink* Someday....... that day will come........



Thanks, Eli, for giving me a tour of the inside of JoAnn, and yes, you are right, I would simply be lost in JoAnn as I walk aisle by aisle with eyes of excitement, looking at all those wonderful craft items! *grin*

I have mentioned before in my earlier posting that JoAnn is one of the many stores I frequent online which I had wished would ship overseas. That way, I could do all my shopping for all the crafts that I am into (which is many! LOL!) in just one online shop, and not have to pay for several shipping charges.

I have always dreamt to someday have a craft shop of my own. If ever I do open one, I would want to go by the same concept of SPOTLIGHT in Singapore, and JoAnn, where all your craft needs are all under one roof. That would be so great!


Maybe I could gather all my stitching and crafting friends and we could open up a shop together? Then, if that is so, who will be our buyers? *grin* We might just end up buying from each other! I would then be my own best customer! LOL! Than, that would be dangerous for the business! LOL!

Well, one thing for sure, I know that my hubby is very supportive of my dream to someday have my own craft shop, so that in itself, is a motivation not to give up on the dream. Thanks, hubby! Love you! Muaahh! *blush*

But, for now, I shall go on dreaming....... *wink*
