Hey Friends and Followers

Just a quick update to let you all know that I have not forgotten that we have a blog !!! Things have been so busy around here that It has been hard for me to keep up with everything and some things just get left for last !!!
First of all, let me get the house keeping out of the way.. We are happy to combine your order as long as we have not sent your shipping invoice to you. We try to have all the orders packed within two days so if you need to add something, please let us know as soon as you possibly can that you have an add on order, or will be adding to your order. We have several customers that have open orders, so that they can add to them and when they let us know they are finished shopping we send them their shipping invoice. There are some international customers that continue to shop until they have filled up their flat rate box, and I have heard that it was said that I (Carol) can fit a small camper van in one of those boxes.  So now on to fun topics !!

We are loving all the new products that have arrived and I have even had a chance to use a couple of the new Tim Holtz Sizzix Movers and Shapers dies on my thank you cards. Some of you have probably received one of them, the bird cage, and or the butterfly !! These dies are just the perfect size for cards, minis, tags  and of course the ATC's. You can even cut these little gems out of chipboard too.

I must try putting my paper onto the chipboard before cutting them out. They have Also come out with some great new flower dies and I am enjoying these as well and because they are a bigz die you can cut them from different materials such as the chipboard, fabric, and my personal favorite.. canvas.

With canvas you can paint it, stamp it, spray it, and even add some glitter to it !!!!

We also had a little birdie tell us that our Order from Pink Paislee shipped this week and will be on my  door step in no time. This is one line of paper that I know I will be hording some of !!!

This is just one of the papers that are in the collection and we have other great elements coming too !!

We are still looking for some of you to send us pictures of your projects so that we can feature you in our news letter. We know there are a ton of you out there that are making some great things, so please send us pictures, a short over view of what it was made from and I promise you it will not hurt you one little bit !!!
Hope your having a great week !!!

Nothing Better Than New Things To Make You Smile

I left the house early yesterday to get some errands done, and when I got home there were boxes piled so high on my porch that I could hardly see the door. I was delighted as I knew that some of the items in the boxes were the long awaited Tim Holtz Idea-ology items, and the K&Company Botanical Papers and goodies. It took me quite a while to unpack it all, and get it put away, but mostly that was because I had to keep stopping to wipe the drool off of my face!!
The K& Company Papers are of course beautiful, and with it we have several matching elements. This line is definitely one that will make any project beautiful !!

The Tim stuff....sigh, there are so many items that are to die for, the tassels, the hangers, the stickers, the papers...... I just need one of everything. !!

We also got part of our shipment of the BoBunny Gabrielle, and Timeworks Papers in on Monday and these are paper lines that I am itching to use. They are probably my all time favorite BoBunny papers of all time. I am going to get the Clock pattern from Laura, and of course make my clock out of this Timeworks line. Not sure what the Gabrielle will be, but I am sure I can find something !!!

So is there any thing here that makes your imagination go wild !!!
Have a great day

So Many New Things So Little Time !!!

There have been boxes and boxes of things that have arrived this week and although some of it is restocking what has sold out, some of it is yummy new things !! We now have in three of the new Sizzix Tim Holtz Dies and 5 New Sizzix Embossing folders. We also have restocked the new Graphic 45 Curtain Call and Le Cirque. There are new fairy stamps, Distress inks in new colors, Replacement blades for the Martha Stewart craft knife, Ribbons, Flowers from Petaloo (yummy yummy) and maybe even more that I have forgotten!! And best of all, we got notification that our BoBunny Gabriell and Timepiece have shipped and should arrive on my door step Monday morning. I Love it when the boys in brown bring me such nice things !!
I did take some time this week to make a frame for the Beautiful picture of my Granddaughter that I received. She was wearing the perfect colors for me to make this frame from the Once Upon A Spring Time Paper From Graphic 45...I painted the frame with acrylic paint, then  I added some of the Petaloo Rose Blooms In White, which I painted with a couple colors of Tattered Anges Mists... added some heart lace, and some string pearls  (oh these are new in the store too) and I had a frame fit for a mini princess !!!

Not that I am prejudice but isn't she sweet?

Hope you all have a nice week end, and that you share some precious moments with those you love.
Blessings Carol
