Happy Tuesday Ya'll

I just checked the calendar and Yup... it is July 20th... where in the heck did this month go? I hate to mention this, but we are 5 months and 5 days away from Christmas!! (do not shoot the messenger) I don't know about you, but it is time that I started thinking about what I am going to make all of the Ladies in my family this year for gifts. I am leaning toward making them all note pad holders with the Sizzix die that I have. We have them cut out and in the store and I really think that it would be a great gift for all of them. 

These are some that I made and sent out for Craft It Forward and the ladies that received them were in love with them. These are the note book pockets. They hold a small note pad and would easily fit into a purse, or even into the glove compartment of the car. I used the Kaiser Craft Blush Papers on these, which are some of my favorites with their wonderful colors and patterns.

The Kits we have in the store come with three note book pockets, three memo holders, and three business card boxes (which are the perfect size for a gift card too). They are so easy to cover and decorate that I may even do all three for each of them !! We have cut them out of Medium weight, acid free chipboard so they will be very sturdy and last a long long time.

The memo holder is even a great little mini book size too !!

So on another note, we have been busy busy busy with the store as we have teamed up with an awesome crafter that takes creativity to a whole new level. Laura Dennison is amazing and her mini books are to die for. She designs her patterns for each book and then comes up with the most amazing ways to bind them. She airs her live shows on Fridays at 7pm through U-Stream and we have added the direct link at the top of our blog . Not only are the shows great to watch, but the live chat is so much fun that we sometimes have to go back and watch the recording to see what we missed while we were chatting !!  We are working with her to make sure we have the items in our store that she gets asked so often where to find, and to provide a great service to her viewers as well. This week she is making a Watch me grow chart that is so cute !! She does have the kits for sale on her Etsy site too, just click on her name above to visit her blog for more details !!

The last and final thing for this Tuesday is that we are the featured sponsor for Donna Downey.
Check out her blog to see what she is saying about us, and also be sure to check out all her wonderful posts as she is one very talented and creative lady !!!
 Hope you all have a wonderful Tuesday and that you find at least one thing this week that will make you laugh till you cry !!!
