I love Hobby Lobby! As a crafter (and a poor one at that) I appreciate that I can go to Hobby Lobby and find what I need at reasonable prices. Plus they have instruction sheets all over the place! Sometimes I just go there to collect instruction sheets!
Hobby Lobby is a great alternative to Michaels or Recollections for scrapbooking items and a great resource for candymaking items. When I am making favors for a shower or party, I go to Hobby Lobby for their treat bags, molds and more - they are just so much less than anywhere else!
