A Masked Bandit! =) & a new SB Store

Last night we were eating dinner and Isaac says "There's a raccoon on Richard's (our neighbor) roof." I say "You mean a squirrel." "NO MOM! A raccoon!" Sure enough, there is a raccoon just hanging out on the neighbor's roof. We think maybe it was scoping out a bird nest in the hedge...the mama bird sat on the fence and was screeching the whole time the raccoon was there! For those of you not familiar with where we is a city of a little over 80,000 right next to Portland. So seeing a raccoon is a little bit of a novelty, especially when it is light out! Isaac thought it was especially cool because raccoons are my favorite animal! Not sure how that happened, but I collected raccoons growing up!

I was browsing the web the other day and found a new (to me!) store in Portland. It is called Collage. My cousin-in-law and I took an "adult field trip" there today and WOW! It is part sb store and part art store. It has a lot of vintage stuff too. I hardly even looked at the actual sb I have a lot of that! =) I did get my first stayz-on ink and copic markers! Can't wait to play! We both got some bamboo tiles that we plan on making necklaces out of. We're sbing on Friday night so hopefully we'll do some then!
