No Rest For These Gals...

Well the tree is dismantled and the decorations are stowed and just when we think we can sit and relax for a!!!
Most people think of "vacation" as white sand beaches, sunshine and tropical drinks. To me "vacation" means hustle and bustle, papers and glue, Glitter and tools...etc...Yep...CHA!!! As Carol points out  ..."this is our vacation"...and she is so right. There is no place else I would rather go to have a blast. To go somewhere and have all the goodies you could ever imagine right at your fingertips. It is the world's largest "craft room"...and we are there with all our friends. Oh ...what could be finer??
Some of the things that are trickling in to get us all revved up are looking mighty nice. I think we will be coming home with truck loads of goodies...or at least orders for goodies.
Here are a few things I know you will be dying to get your hands on...I know I can't wait.
This is just a smidge from Prima. I love that they have the covered wire. I had gotten some of this at CHA a while back but we never really showed it. I was crazy for it then so I am so glad someone picked up on it. Oh Boy!!! Are we gonna have some fun!

 And Julie Nutting now has dies for the dolls...right up my alley! Don't worry...we'll get plenty!
And what could be any better than a Spritz that will also Splatter. Yes the sprayer has a Splatter feature! Oh My!!! I am in so much trouble. I don't like Mists...but give me Splatters any day!!!

This new collection from Prima looks like it will be gorgeous. They have lots of beautiful collections coming out
Many of you have been asking for here is some new from Petaloo that look very interesting. I love Kraft in anything!

So what do you think so far? Pretty neat...huh? I will try to keep you in suspense with new posts so you can see some peeks of the stuff we will be seeing in Anaheim.
We have wish lists started so PLEASE email us with your wishes for the new season. We want to hear from all of you if there is something you see that you want us to bring in ...or at least give it  a closer look. We will be posting from CHA. Carol will keep Face Book buzzing I'm sure.
Of course! ...we know you want the new Graphic 45! Who doesn't???
But please send us your wish list and we'll do our best to make everyone happy as clams.
Nite all,
Barrie & Carol


  1. one of my favorite designers is Karen Burniston. She is no longer with Sizzix and is affiliated with Elisabeth Craft Designs. I will be starting to collect Karen's new dies designed for Elisabeth Craft Designs. I don't know how this works, if ECD is a wholesale distributer, then I suppose all the craft stores could carry their products? ...just thinking...

    1. I forgot to say: I'm really excited by the new Julie Nutting stamps and dies. I have all the current doll stamps and i'm looking forward to t he new ones. I made my grand neices home made smash books filled with stamped images of all the dolls to color and the clothes stamped on patterned paper for paper piecing.

    2. Yay Helen...we have had several requests for ECraft dies. We have had her dies in for a while. I love the Kimono. We will definitely be getting the new lines...

  2. Excited for the Julie Nutting stamps and dies!!!

  3. Please check out Elizabeth Craft Designs...I know her personally and she is a great lady! Here dies are very nice and she is now collaborating with Karen Burniston and the sneak peaks are GORJUS! Can't wait to see what you bring back for us crafty peeps!
