Yummy Goodies

We have received lots of Baked Goodies and Gifts from our customers this Holiday Season but I had to share with you what Sue A. baked for us.

Aren't these just so amazing. I love the way she made these Brownies, so original and yes they taste just as great as they look. (There were a lot more but, we ate them before I thought to take a photo) A feast for the eyes and the tummy!!
Thanks Sue!!

We had a lot of fun at our Hero Arts Stamp Event Saturday. We got most of our Stamps Thursday (with me panicking that the last box would not get here in time) and Hero Arts overnighted us the rest of the stamps for friday so we were all ready.

Here are some of the new stamps that we received.

This one is my favorite and was one of the images we used for the Make & Takes

Tons and tons of new fresh and exciting images just waiting to be inked.

Here is one stamp that Tim Holtz used in four different ways.

Classes in January

I can't believe it is almost the end of 2009 let alone 7 days till Christmas. Where on earth did the time go??? I have a million things to do, like start my Christmas Shopping. (Luckily I did not take my Christmas Tree down last year, So I have that done) I will have to take a day off work next week to get some shopping done.

At the store we have been very busy getting classes done by the end of the year and working on the Calendar for January. Our first Quickutz meeting was a lot of fun even if it was hampered by the torrential rain. We even had a free comedy show at the Morning Meeting. Yes, Helen our headline act will be making another guest appearance at January's Club Meeting.

Here is the Great Impressions Class coming in January.

Very sophisticated cards

Stay tuned we have some exciting things planned for next year.
