Unbelievable I haven’t noticed this for nearly a year. Amalia- shop opened last May, right next to my favourite haunt: Fida. I’ve visited Amalia few times now and I’ve even participated in a card making workshop. OF which I took pictures and will be writing a post about it to Amalia- website. Note: I’m not getting paid for this post or for the other. I just got chatty with the owner, Mira, and I realized that this would be a great way to develop my writing AND to gain more material for my portfolio. If you remember, one of my goals for this year is to get paid at least once for a writing job.
Back to the shop…As said, I was shocked to find a new store and an independent one at that. Another thing I also discovered: Mira is the person who has been snapping up all the good goodies at Fida. I’ve been wondering about the dwindling amount of things that I like for past few months and now the mystery is resolved. Mira buys them. Nice.
Some kind of overview of things she has for sale. I’ve spotted some Cosmo Cricket stuff I just have to have. Might have to go shopping this weekend…By the way, the shopping experience is greatly enhanced by following things:
One thing that makes this shop extra special is that you can go and try various tools Mira has in store for the craft courses she holds. In some cases one can even rent them. Which is great because personally I cannot justify buying more eccentric cutters which I might want to use for only one project. Here’s some of the loot she has…
Plus she has about gazillion different kind of stamps and ALL colours of Distress Inks…Anyhoo, this was the introduction to my new favourite shop. Which basically means that you will be reading about Amalia lot more in the future.
I think it’s wallpaper that did the trick for me.
Till next time.
