Hobby Lobby

Have you ever been to a Hobby Lobby?  I may or may not have peed my pants yesterday when I went for the first time.  They had tons of cute home decor stuff for 80% percent off, and such cute mirrors, and frames for cheap.  I could have stayed their for hours if my grumpy boys weren’t trailing me.  They didn’t have tons of fabric, but they had some really cute, nice quality stuff on sale.

I picked up this bunch for a project I need to get crackin’ on.  Because packing, organizing, cleaning and my other 100 projects weren’t enough. Ha.  Now I have to hurry and see if I can get my hands on this to watch tonight, so I don’t have to watch this:

I have never been to a Hobby Lobby but you sure make me want to strap on some Depends and go! You sure picked some cute fabrics.

I LOVE hobby lobby! The one near me has a pretty good selection of fabrics... and that is not even considering the many other things they have!

Amanda said...

I'm a loyal Hobby Lobby shopper, but we don't have one super close so I don't get to go nearly as often as I'd like. BUT thats probably a really good thing for my checking account!

Brenda said...

I've seen that potty movie so many times. I could tell you every word of the girl version.
I love Hobby Lobby.

Leigh said...

I have to pretend Hobby Lobby doesn't exist because it is DANGEROUS! Did you know there's a 40% off any item coupon on their website?

Heather said...

I love HoLo!

Tracy said...

Funny, my first ever quilt has a few of those fabrics in it. And the coin quilt I am working on has the grey stripe! LOVE Hobby Lobby but agree it is best visited alone, or maybe with a gal pal. Not boys!

I've heard of Hobby Lobby but I don't even think we have one in California.
My son could use that movie (the potty one, not the shopaholic one) When you're done, you can send it my way! ;)

Kim said...

I've watched certain kid movies over and over again and it's not always fun. The Potty Movie, what a funny title. I think I might have to get that one for my grandson.

I am an avid Hobby Lobby shopper. That fabric on the top of your pile, I made roman shades for my daughter from that.

I love Hobby Lobby! In fact I was just there yesterday. I could spend a fortune in that store. Have a great weekend!

I've heard of Hobby Lobby but have never been because I think the closest one is in NY (I'm in CT). Boo. You're making me want to hop in my car and drive to one! hehe :D

jaybird said...

i have not... and it appears there is not one close so it may be a while until i do... but my wallet thanks me!

Chris said...

I may or may not have peed my pants reading your post! Too funny. I, too, had a Hobby Lobby experience recently where my two year old was a complete loony-toon. I didn't care, I became the white trash mom who let her run wild screaming around the store (did I mention she was barefoot?) so I could get my hands on some fabric. You and I speak the same language...

patsy said...

OH MY GOSH!
I can't wait to see what you are making with this fabric!
You've got fabric picking skills...

I love hobby lobby & fortunely it's far enough away I don't spend every dime we own there.

Cora Anne Designs said...

I LOVE that store! The key is to never ever pay full price for anything...if it's not on sale this week, it will be next week, and you can always use a coupon. (They also take coupons from Michael's as well!) Happy shopping!

Care said...

Never been there, but now I am going to google it and find out if there is one within 500 miles of where I live!!

Try "Elmo's Potty Time." Plenty of adult humor that is completely lost on the little ones. It's fairly watchable the first one or two times. And hey, it's brought to you by the letter P and the number 2!

Susan said...

I've never been to Hobby Lobby and I didn't know they had fabric. I'll have to search for one. Great fabric and on sale, yay for you!

Ariel said...

I love it! Elmo's potty time is the movie of choice here at the moment...at least I can sit back, laugh, and wonder how in the world these movies aren't X-rated ;)

Hobby Lobby is fun :) They're a Christian-values company too, so you can't shop there on Sunday! They're everywhere here in the midwest!!!

Jaime said...

This is my first ever comment here just because i am passionate about Hobby Lobby. It is my favorite place and luckily ours is super close to a starbucks so i get my drink and could stay in there for hours!!! (as long as my boys aren't with me) As for that movie...we have the book version. I am very thankful we didn't know it was a movie too! :-) I love your blog!

Anna said...

I need to do two things: 1. Give our local HobbLobb another look and 2. Get that potty movie.

The Eckerts said...

Oh boy, if my boys knew the book had a movie to go along with it that would just be the end. If your little one wants to watch the movie as much as our boys want to read the book, I feel for you :) And it looks like he does!

Hobby Lobby was my favorite hangout as a teenager! Is that kinda sad? NAHHH! It is a fantastic store! I wish there was one near us now.

Seeing your post, I have to tell you that our family still sings the "potty song" from the training video, and our youngest is 10. thanks for the giggle.

erica said...

I have the striped fabric and I love it! I should check out the potty movie for my niece!

Taiya said...

I am making my quilt along quilt out of those fabrics! Along with some purples and pinks... all from Hobby Lobby.. LOVE it!

Evenspor said...

Hobby Lobby is the best. I wish we had one here.

Mama Megs said...

Hobby Lobby IS the best! I'm so happy I live close to one. Why are there none in Washington? Why is there nothing in Washington!

Sara said...

Our Hobby Lobby fabric varies, sometimes its good, sometimes its not...

Enjoy that potty movie! I am SO glad I am long past that stage!

La Familia said...

You're hilarious! I love the shot of your tot behind his potty movie!

Leslie said...

I could walk around that store for hours! I've gotten some great fabric there...just depends on their selection at the time I'm there.

amandajean said...

I was visiting my boyfriends family this weekend and went to Hobby Lobby for the first time. I made him take a picture of me in front of the store. =)
