Good afternoon,

So much for Spring!  Well, at least we are halfway through Feb. so Spring is not that far off.

We have a class coming up next Sat. Feb. 26 10-12 and Thurs. Mar. 3rd. 10-12 as well.  It's $35 including one of the cute Bugaboos.  If you'd like to register, just call the store.  Louise is doing 2 techniques with the Tombow markers as well as paper piecing. punching and glittering.  Just bring a good pair of small, sharp scissors.  Hope to see you then.

Enjoy the weekend,

Hi everyone,

Best of  intentions...I'd like to write every few days but there just aren't enough hours in the day.  I sound like my mother!

I made a card for Valentine's Day, inspired by Louise and using the Hoppies from House Mouse.  These are the little cutest little bunnies.  I used Staz On black and coloured with Tombow markers.  I glazed the chocolates with Diamond Glaze to give them a glossy finish.  The Punch is from good old Martha.  I also used a dot stamp from Penny Black and embossed with a clear pad, with clear powder for a watermark effect.

I have the dates for Elizabeth Allan.  She will be coming on Fri. Apr. 29-Sun. May 1. She will be teaching 3 different classes...all 3 on Sat.   2 of the same classes will be on Fri., and 1 on Sun.  For those of you wanting to take the full day on Sat. just give me a call and I'll add your name to the list.  I'll have the samples by the beginning of March.  Once I have the cards it will be easier to figure it all out.

Enjoy the Spring-like weather while it lasts!

Hi to everyone,

It certainly has been a while.  There just always seems to be a lull after the holidays in order to re-energize. 

We are having a HUGE sale this Sat. in order to make room for a lot of new products.  Prices will be drastically reduced, especially in the classroom area. 

I am placing an order with Spellbinders and Cuttlebug for their new products.  If there is anything you have seen and would like me to add, just let me know so I can put it in my pre-order.  Now, when they will come in is always a big question, but at least the order will be placed.  Spellbinders has a lot of really beautiful new dies, and Cuttlebug has a lot of interested new sets with many sizes of embossing folders.

I've made a card for Valentine's Day and will send it out next week, once the sale is over, which was inspired by Louise's class of the L'il Mimis easel card.  It's a great way to display a card.

Have a great weekend and I hope to see you on Saturday!
