The Hobby Lobby: a delayed adventure

23til23

 

Yesterday was a big day. Not only was it the inauguration, which is what blew up the internet, but it was also a day I spent with my Grandma. For her birthday in November, I’d gotten her a giftcard for The Hobby Lobby, as well as promises of a day of just us, the store, and lunch.

As I spent time with Grandma, I ended up reflecting on my youth. Grandma pointed out various art supplies I had enjoyed as a kid, and I asked her more about the crafting she enjoys doing. I realized how important it is to spend time with family, and to embrace their quirks. Spending the afternoon with Grandma was exactly what I needed.

I also learned that my grandma has a thing for roosters… specifically evil looking ones.

Of all the things the store had to offer, Grandma wanted to get a raincheck for a rooster because the one she fell in love with had a chip on its head. Personally, I think it was a little evil looking in a cute sort of way…

Also, I came across this poster, which sums up me in the mornings.

What are some of your favorite childhood memories?? Heck, what do you enjoy most about going to art supply stores?
