Shop and Hop swag bag goods

Yesterday, I had the wonderful opportunity to meet up with some fellow Hoosier bloggers (and a Kentucky gal). The Thrifty Decor Chic, Sarah, and Beckie, who is Infarrantly Creative, hosted Shop and Hop. We went around to four Goodwills in the Indy area and had a blast despite the rain.

Before we got our shopping on, we had a nice lunch and were given fantastic swag bags!

The Goods, including the reusable GoodWill bag

Gorilla Glue goodness!

I LOVE free paint, but I am JUST as pumped about the many mini paint colors! I have a serious problem with accumulating collecting these! The colors of the samples are Gobi Desert and Suede Black.

This great knob came from Eclectic Cabinet Knobs and Decor.

No, your eyes do not deceive... 
3M sanding block, sandblaster sandpaper, and spray adhesive!
(That rhymed in my head... "adheseeve")

And, last, but certainly not least:
Scotch painter's tape for delicates and multi surfaces,
SPARKLE Mod Podge, and
Oil Rubbed Bronze spray paint (yum!).

The day was definitely a success. In addition to the goods above and the new friendships, I came home with a car load. I now have 10 projects in the middle of the living room begging to be painted and crafted. I spent less than $50, which is HUGE for me; I don't spend money. But, I seriously had my mother-in-law's Escape LOADED down with 2 really big finds + all my smaller ones. So, it was well spent.  I'll post my loot pics tomorrow!

We leave for family vacation with Dustin's whole family on Friday, so I have a busy week cleaning, packing, working, writing papers, and (now) getting a first coat on as many projects as I can!
