Interested in a class?  There are two new Saturday classes scheduled.

You will use Prismacolor pencils and paint thinner/Gamsol to create a beautiful card.  Courtney will guide you in shading techniques.  Don't miss this one!  A sample is on display at the shop.

Also on that table are some houses created by Courtney and Lydia from Courtney's house template.  They are adorable!  Everything you need to make your own really cute house cards is there! Watch for more house stamps and related sayings to arrive any day now!

Connie and I had a blast rearranging the store last week!  Probably Lydia is still searching for things!!!
The large front table is loaded with items to use for Valentines Day--stamps, papers, 6X6 Pixie papers and stamps from Memory Box, gold and silver pens, etc.  Embellishments for valentines and winter are on the spinner rack next to that table.  The large display cupboard now houses winter stamps, punches, Snow Writer pens and white gel pens, rabbits (2011 is the Year of the Rabbit), and some cooking/baking stamps, gingerbread men, and related sayings.

The second table features the ever-popular House Mouse stamps and stickers as well as the 2011 House Mouse calendar.  Also in that area are selected Maine stamps and the thin cherry wood that stamps on beautifully.

All of the inks and embossing powders are now together on the big blue shelf.  We've got lots of tinted and clear embossing pads, Faith's clear embossing powder, and many colored embossing powders.  And there is a nice variety of many many inks from our favorite companies. 

All of the Tattered Angels products have been moved to the shelves next to the ribbons and are 30% off!  That's on Glimmer Mist, Glimmer Glam, and some mistable papers!

Cancer ribbon stamps, hot pink embossing powder, and other related items are on the wall shelf next to the tree.

All of the Christmas stamps are now in/on the black cabinets in the second part of the store.  Christmas stickers and embellishments have been added to the sale racks.  Anything Christmas is 25% off!!!  Check this area for good deals on last year's Easter stamps and stickers, too, as well as fall, Halloween, and Thanksgiving stamps and embellishments on the sale table and racks.

There are lots of items on order and due in any day now.  

And there are BIG SURPRISES planned for  this year's SuperBowl Sunday Party on Sunday, February 6th from 10 AM to 4:30 PM.  SAVE THE DATE!  Watch for more information soon on this blog, in e-mails from Your Maine Stamper, and a postcard should be going out soon to those folks who don't get e-mail.  This is going to be a fun day with door prizes, free goodies for the first 30 people through the door, make and takes, and yummy treats!  You won't want to miss this annual event!!!

  1. Super Bowl Sunday is always a big event at YMS - the store has been celebrating this day for 10+ years. And for those of us who "assume" that the Patriots will be in the big game that day, we'll be home in plenty of time for the kick off. See you at YMS on Sunday Feb 6th. Connie
