We are getting ready!!! Connie and I did a little rearranging today to make space for everything that's going to happen in the shop this week and on SuperBowl Sunday.
At the constant nagging of a bunch of people in the shop this morning, I called Dave at Memory Box to see when we should expect the What's Inside the Box order. It should be here on Wednesday/Thursday!!! Woo-Hoo!!! We'll call anyone who pre-ordered stamps or papers once everything is priced and ready to go so you can come and get it. I know I can't wait!!! For those of you who don't know what all the excitement is about, we are expecting 20+ new stamps from Memory Box (at least 6 of each one), gorgeous new 12X12s and two different 6X6 packs of papers, notecards and envelopes in new blues and greens that you are going to love, and pearls and jewels in coordinating colors. There should be some "extras" in the box for my MakeIt/TakeIt on Sunday...you are going to love the techniques I'll be sharing that day.
Twinklets came in today as well as lots of inks, Glossy Accents, and envelope templates (so you can make your own cool envelopes). A big order of new stamps came in from Northwoods--squirrels, "will work for seed", chipmunks, anniversary words, and a bunch of Easter-themed stamps--watering can and tulips, tiny chicks inside tulip blossoms, daffodil border, Easter lily rectangle, an adorable bunny square, and more. The Stamp-of-the-month is here too--a glass bowl of roses!!! That will be a great stamp for Valentines Day, an anniversary, birthday, Mother's Day, or for an anytime card.
You may not want to wait until Sunday to see what's new. It's been amazing lately to watch how fast stuff flies out the door! I think Connie said we were out of Neptune Blue ink by 4 this afternoon and we only unpacked it at noon!!!
Lydia has put together a door prize package for each of the first 30 people who come to the store on SuperBowl Sunday to party with us. You are not going to believe this!!! There will be a drawing too for a big prize at the end of the day--and you do not need to be present to win--we'll call the winner. This prize is so big and so secret that no one has even told me what it is!!!
As usual there will be food and lots of laughter during the day on Sunday, some great sales on all things red/pink, and Connie and I are going to fill a basket with regular stamps we will discount for that day only. You never know what crazy stunts we'll pull!!! We are planning to have some fun!!!
Mark your calendar. Tell the guys they have to fend for themselves until you get home, and stop in for SuperBowl Sunday at Your Maine Stamper!!!
