Crazy day yesterday!

Hi guys! Yesterday was a Crafter's Yard Sale at Bella Art in Johnston, RI, (my new favorite place!) I schlepped all my no-longer-wanted SU sets, and misc. items in the high hopes of selling some. Luckily the table only cost me ten bucks. Because.... as SOON as I got off the highway, and the store was within sight, less than a quarter of a mile away, I got pulled over by a RI State cop! I was apologetic, (he had also pulled over two other cars) and respectful. I sat and waited. He came back with my 95 DOLLAR TICKET, saying it really should have been 300 dollars. So I said thank you (BUT I REALLY DIDN'T MEAN IT!!!) I then started bawling, got to the store and set up. I "made" like 35 bucks, so I'm really only 60 dollars in the hole I guess, and hopefully I won't get a surcharge on my insurance. Maybe not, I'm hoping, since I have no prior speeding tix.
Sooo, not exactly a great day, but... afterward I just had to shop at Bella, and boy lemme tell you, they are an awesome store! (I spent 92$, LOL!) Oh, Lord, forgive me for I know not what I do!! So I guess it was retail therapy for me, huh? I got two new Nestie die sets, 3 stamps, and a new Tim Holts ruler... oh also some Kaiser rhinestones. Fun schtuff!

Have a wonderful night, I'm off to watch the Boston Bruins game 2 of the playoff series against the Carolina Hurricanes. BTW, my husband, & I, and our son & his friend were at game one! We won, and it was and awesome night, the arena was filled with energy... a great experience!!

You had me cracking up with your story but I'm so sorry to hear that you got a ticket. Is that store a stamping store, what is the address? I would luv to check it out! I'm always in search of the perfect stamping store in our area, I still need to check out the one in NH.
