WooHoo! New Products and Rearranging the Store--Again!
Today was the last Monday Morning Madness and Mayhem gathering for awhile. I think I may offer some again in October or November/December to get holiday projects going. It's been a blast! Thanks to all of you who were able to participate!!!
Check out the photos! NEW CAMERA! (Remember that you can click on any photo to see it larger on your screen.)
We've got lots of lovely papers in luscious colors for fall and some really spectacular Christmas and winter ones too.
There's a basket of new ribbons on the counter--fuzzy pumpkins; twill dog and cat ones (you can ink these up to coordinate with papers); Maine animals on a reddish twill (or is it a pinkish/magenta-ish color?) ; and some absolutely adorable pompoms that are the cutest things ever!
This is all we have left of the first Memory Box order for fall stamps. The second order is on its way. AND Connie phoned in the third order this afternoon! I think we deserve special notice on their website. Everyone has just been loving these stamps. The other photos shows some of the winter/Christmas ones from Memory Box and Magenta that are new to us. More on the way!
Before I left the shop today I got into one of my "have to move the furniture" moods and hauled the black bookcases to a new area in order to feature all of our Christmas words and images in one place. I hope Connie got to some of it this afternoon and I'll tweak it a bit tomorrow. I hate to be rushing the season, but I did see decorations up in one of the area stores over the weekend!
I'll be in the shop this week on Tuesday and Thursday while Lydia takes some time away with family. Pop in and say hello if you are in town--or make a special trip! I think I'll set up a make it/take it on the back table using a technique we tried today. Just spritz Memories Mist onto a Fiskars Texture Plate, smoosh paper into the ink on the plate, lift off, and you will have an intricate design that looks stenciled! Way cool!!! I'll run a special price on all Memories Mists tomorrow of 40% off!!! (Shhh...I haven't told Lydia I'm going to do this...) Then I'll think of something else to do on Thursday and I'm going to feature a sale on all the peel-and-stick sparkly gemstones that day.
The stamp of the month for September goes on sale tomorrow! I'll post a photo tomorrow night along with a sample if I get time to make one. I just hope I'm so busy tomorrow that I won't have time!
