The Best Advent Calendar Project Ever!

I couldn't wait to show everybody what we created today in about three hours--Advent Calendars using the Karen Foster boxes, great papers, and lots of my stuff. The crafters were: Ann, Linda, Connie, Kellie, Carlene, and Jean with me (Anne) directing the process and using my completed box for construction/decoration inspiration.

Next week on Monday November 30 the madness and mayhem continues with card projects that I'm calling
Shabby Chic Holidays: antiquing techniques, vintage buttons, lovely faded and muted papers, old-fashioned images, lace, flowers, ribbons, sheet music, recycled jewelry--combining old items with new for lovely shabby effects cards.

Memory Box stamps arrived yesterday and went up on the shelves today along with new cards/envelopes and lots more jewels in red, green, yellow, and clear. Tomorrow I'm working at the store and Connie will join me at some point so that we can write out more orders. We need papers and end cuts from Paper Cut, more coffee bags in kraft brown and in white, and we already need to reorder two stamps from Memory Box to have in time for our December 5th event. Today we noticed that we're almost out of stamping pads and tape refills for the tape guns, we need some fabric ink, and most of the Twinklets are gone. We've also started a Penny Black order that we have to finish up. With the holidays coming we want to make sure that we have everything you could need or want in stock. Remember that we do Gift Certificates, too--and we're pretty good at filling wish lists for people who want to shop for you.

Tons of stuff on sale at 30% off! The latest holiday Cuttlebug folders! Beautiful red and green inks! Glitter and Stickles to glam up your cards and gift tags! And don't forget the tiny pails--great place markers for Thanksgiving or Secret Santa gifts!

Stop by on Tuesday and say "Hi!" or come in on Wednesday and pick up the last minute things you need for Thanksgiving. We'll be closed on Thursday, but open again on Friday and Saturday. We are all extremely thankful for you our customers and friends. Don't forget to put December 5th on your calendar with Your Maine Stamper as your destination that day. Should be tons of fun, good food, free make-it/take-its, 40% off selected items, and some surprise sale items at an even deeper discount!

Happy Stamping!



  1. Oh my!!! The best class ever (until the next one and then the one after that :-)) I had such a blast at today's class and what an impressive product we created in a few short hours. Plus, the brainstorming that sent me home with great ideas and product for more Christmas cards. YMS is truly a special place!!! -Kellie
