There's a table at the front of the store filled with things for St. Patrick's Day, Sunday March 17th.  There are some great stamps, including a new Irish Blessing stamp with an exquisite sample.  There are beer mug stickers and a "Beer is the answer..." stamp that would be cute on guy cards.  Lots of buttons, green ribbons, stickers, and more for table decor, cards, gift bag decorations for your favorite leprechauns as well as green inks should help to get you in the spirit.

For Easter, which is Sunday March 31st this year, and for the First Day of Spring also in March, we've got a large table overflowing with stamps, embellishments, ribbons, and more!  

There are some great rabbit stamps, from realistic to funky to cute, including a cling stamp of the little rabbit peeking out of the flower pot above.  There are several Stampendous House Mouse stamps as well as Stamps by Judith that are also perfect for the season.  There's one Easter egg Memory Box die left--perfect for cutting out eggs in pretty patterend papers!

There are floral stamps--lilies, daffodils,  and other spring flowers.  We've got lots of sentiment stamps, too.  

This week we're expecting a shipment from one of our suppliers with the cutest rabbit brads ever and two new paper lines--French Country Market and Secret Garden.  And we've got more 12X12 and cardstock papers in bright spring-y Easter-ish colors!  There are some great bright yellow cards from Memory Box and tons more on the way in violet and other spring tones--we are hoping that order arrives next week.  (I'll certainly do a special post when it comes because we've ordered lots of the newest dies, too.)

Remember that the store is open Tuesday through Saturday, 10 AM to 4:30 PM.

Spring into Spring Event on Saturday, March 16th.

Anne's March class, Saturday, March 23rd, 1-3 PM.  $15.  We'll make our own watercolored background papers and die cut flowers from them using several of the brand new Memory Box dies.  Hopefully we'll have enough for three or four cards. We'll also make two cards using the PoppyStamps Madison House dies set.  There are only two spots left in this class, so call the store at 377-4829 to reserve your space if you are interested.  Thanks!

LYDIA's Back and Your Maine Stamper is OPEN for business!

Lydia is back after three weeks of warmth and sun in Florida.  And Your Maine Stamper is OPEN for business as usual, Tuesday through Saturday, 10 AM to 4:30 PM each day.  Hooray!!!

While Lydia was away, the store mice (Connie and I) played a bit and rearranged EVERYTHING.  There's a great selection of items for St. Patrick's Day, the next official calendar holiday, as well as lots of stamps and goodies for Easter and spring.  Can you believe the first day of spring is just a month away?!  And Easter is early this year, in late March.

Stop in this week and welcome Lydia back from vacation.  Take a look around the store and stock up for everything you'll need for St. Patrick's Day, the First Day of Spring, and Easter.  We expect boxes in this week and next and more orders will be going out shortly.  I'll try to update you when new items arrive.  I can't wait for the new Secret Garden and French Market papers to come in.  And there's a HUGE Memory Box order on its way.  With the store rearranged, though, you may easily find things you didn't know we had!  There's a whole big basket of Lydia's Scrappy Packs on the Coffee Table.

I (Anne) am teaching a class THIS SATURDAY, 1-3 PM, $15.  We must have at least 3 and no more than 6 people in order to hold the class.  Call the store at 377-4829 to sign up ASAP!!!  We'll make a bunch of cards using a watercolor technique with Distress Inks, color with Distress markers,  and create several cards that begin with white embossing on colored notecards.
