Doodlebugs

Doodlebugs 1

I’ve always managed impulse control pretty well but Doodlebugs on Washington Street severely tests me. I’ve got a habit and they have my fix. You may know me as a photo blogger but I spend a lot of time — and an inordinate amount of money — making greeting cards.

I’m addicted to rubber stamps. And dies. And designer paper. And embellishments. And alcohol ink pens. And a lot more stuff than you’re probably interested in reading about. Doodlebugs, owned by a family of very nice and exceedingly talented people, has it all. And if they don’t have it they’ll get it for you. (Their customer service is truly awesome.)

If you don’t know how to do something they can usually demonstrate it to you. Chances are they may even offer a class. And if all else fails, buy a coloring book, sit down, and color. It’s supposed to be very soothing.

  1. I have seen your cards and you are an artiste! This place must be like paradise to you. I’m not into these kinds of things nor am I into coloring books anymore (a daughter-in-law of mine does “adult” coloring books, though! Yikes!) but I can understand the need you feed and the pull you feel to buy everything in the store.

    By mistake I found myself in a golf store this afternoon. By the grace of the gods, I was able to get out with a couple of bucks still left in my checkbook!
