I've been away this week but kept calling Lydia at the store several times a day as I was anxiously awaiting the arrival of new stuff. The UPS man delivered not one but TWO LARGE BOXES yesterday!!!
The BO BUNNY box was full of papers: Double Dots in paprika, seafoam, harvest, burnt orange, and pink punch; beautiful double-sided papers in Kitchen Spice Cinnamon, Gypsy Lace (teal), and Gypsy Spice; and the St. Nick line for Christmas in Noel (holly), Sugarplum, Sleigh (don't know why they named it this because there is no sleigh on the paper), and St, Nick Cut-Outs (It's going to be hard to decide which side of this one to use!). Old-fashioned Beautiful Life Cut-Outs, St. Nick Christmas Wishes Rub-Ons, and Candy Jewel embellishments rounded out the order. I could hardly hear Lydia over the oohs and aahs of the women in the store!
And MEMORY BOX STAMPS AND PAPERS are here! The papers are collections of 6X6s of their new releases: Dewfrost (just right for winter), Spiceberry (perfect for Christmas), and Twilight (for fall/Halloween). And the stamps!!! You are going to LOVE these!!! Love Cat; Cat with a Lamp; Cardinals in a Tree; Owls in a Tree; Staircase (pumpkin on the landing); and Pumpkin Field will be perfect for fall and winter holidays. The other really cool stamp for fall is one that is a bare tree with an extra stamp on it of leaves so you can make your own tree!!! Several of their wood stamps are set up this way--a regular image on the large area of the stamp and a word or phrase on one of the edges. Others like this that came in are Deer Friends, Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree, and Jumping for Joy. Bramble Wreath is a great one for fall or the holidays--you could decorate it for any season actually. There's also a sledding bear, a bear with snowballs, a poinsettia, and a silhouette of a deer. "Happy Fall" is a new sentiment. And there's one Neighborhood stamp. The second Memory Box order has gone out already, even before this one came in! Be sure to browse the catalog when you are in the store as a third order form has been started. As the only stamp store in central/southern Maine carrying these stamps, you HAVE TO come in and see them and take some home!
I bought a new camera this week (14 megapixels!) and will photograph what's left when I get to the store on Monday and post again on Monday night. (That is, unless I can figure out a way to get in there tomorrow during the day!)
Come into the store and pick up stuff while it lasts!!!
