CLOSED TODAY WED. DEC. 9th
We will be closed today, Wednesday December 9th, due to inclement weather. Open tomorrow and the rest of the week!
Yesterday, 50 sheets of the Christmas music paper (brownish with the faded holly on it that everybody loves and has been clamoring for) from Penny Black arrived and is now on the holiday paper spinner rack. There were some new word stamps in the order for Christmas. Everyone's favorite Scotch Tacky Adhesive, tape runners. Glue Dots, and Memories pads in Chestnut and Pine Green were also in the box. Love those ink colors!
It's not too late if you haven't yet started your holiday cards. We have Memory Box notecards and matching envelopes in some great new colors as well as blank cards in neutrals from Paper Cut. There are even some Glossy and Acrylic cards for those of you who like to play with alcohol inks. There is still a good selection of stickers and jewels to bling up your cards. The stamp of the month continues to be one of Courtney's designs featuring Frosty the Snowman; now $6 instead of $10. We still have lots of Christmas and new year stamps to choose from. There are even some Outlines stamps that make up into pretty ornament toppers. How about decorating an ornament for a stamping friend and then gifting her the stamp? You could do this with a set of notecards, a single holiday card, a scrapbook page--just create the gift and give it along with the stamp (and a favorite color ink pad). Neat idea, huh?!
I'm using my snow day today to get crafty--planning ahead for upcoming classes but also working in my 12X12 journal on Snow Day pages, stamping on kraft paper and then wrapping presents; and I'll hopefully get the tree decorated today, too.
