Love Letters

We just got the new Love Letters Collection from Little Yellow Bicycle.

It is a lavish collection of saturated pinks, reds, greys(the new go-to neutral) and sprinkled just the right pieces with velvet like accents. Vintage inspired details...with a modern sensible approach. Contemporary, Romantic, both. Document everyday moments with the journaling starters. Clear cut shapes and frames, decorative edged papers, epoxy, and more...It's all here!

Fabulous embellishments in this line include flocked stickers and wonderful acetate pieces!!


Here is Deborah S. who was the lucky winner of our December Bag full of Stuff. I am sure she will have fun going through all the stuff in the Braggables Bag.

We just got the new Little Yellow Bicycle Love Letters Collection in. Very very nice papers and embellishments. Will take a photo and post it later. Till then, have a great day......

Glimmery Goodness

Look what we got!!!! Tons and tons of Glimmer Mist. We love this stuff.

Usually the shipment sells out in a couple of days so this time we purchased even more including the latest Spring Colors. They have such cool names: Cherry Blossom, Garden Fairy, Dew Drop, Hydrangea, Mimosa and Sweet Pea. I can't wait to start using these on all the spring projects I have planned.

Our Customers have been bring baked goodies for us this week to munch on.

How sweet they are :)

today we got a lovely Italian Lunch brought in with cookies for dessert. (Thanks Pam) No picture of that as we ate it too fast. And we got a telephone call this morning that someone else made chocolate candies for us. . . . . . . . . . .

Guess I am going to have to postpone weighing in at Weight Loss Wednesday for a while as I don't want to be rude and not sample everything.

Got to go eat some cookies, more later . . . . . . . . . . . .

I'm Blogging today!!!

Did you think we were never going to blog again ???? I can't believe when I look at the date that I last wrote something here that so much time has flown by, where does it all go? Don't even get me started about Christmas. Rosemary just told me this afternoon that there are 12 days left till Christmas!!!! That kinda freaked me out because I have not even started thinking about shopping let alone got any of it done. Thank goodness I still have my christmas tree up from last year :)

Here at the store we have been so busy for the last couple of weeks, it's a wonder we are still awake. This week we had numerous classes and also the Hero Arts Catalog Debut event. We are also completing an album that we have been commissioned to make for a "celebrity".

We are also working on numerous Make and Takes, classes and workshop samples. We have started doing the Tims 12 Tags of Christmas at the store and have made the first 3, next week we are doing the 2nd 3 tags but we have had to wait for the supplies to be restocked.

I really need to find more time in the day to get everything done. I have quit doing housework, cooking and talking to my husband (okay that part only saved me 30 seconds a day) but, there still does not appear to be enough hours in a day to get everything done.

So that is a long winded reason why this blog does not get updated more frequently.

Well onto some photos as I know you all like to see them. (either that or it is a reason to stop reading the prattle that I write).

Here is a photograph of the Hero Arts Party. We had some delicious cookies and lots of fun. I love the new Hero Arts Catalog, lots of great stamps and some wonderful inspiration. We did sell out of catalogs but we have more on the way.

Today (Saturday) we had one of our Stamp Of the Month classes. This months cards were all cooking/baking themed and were very cute.

This photo is from the Thursday Stamp of the month class. For some reason I did not take a photo from Friday nights class :( As you can see these classes are very popular and it is at times like these I wish we had four cash registers so that customers did not have to wait so long to check out.

So at least I have blogged today.
Hello is there anyone out there? if you are reading this please leave a comment so that I know I am not talking to myself :) OUCH, Rosemary just whacked me across the back of my head and said I was acting like a petulant child asking for comments. But seriously folks, it would be nice to know if there is anyone actually reading this.
