Happy Holidays!

Hard to believe, but here we are again. Christmas and New Years! We drive ourselves crazy to get the decorations up, maybe bake some goodies, oh and the Christmas cards. Sit back a moment and enjoy the decorations, nibble on that broken cookie, and look through the cards you have received one more time.  Isn't it wonderful? Enjoy the time with family and friends, and even the quiet time. It really is magical.

We wish you a wonderful Holiday, and we hope that 2017 will be a year of happiness, health and lots of creative time. 

Thank you for your support and friendship

Feeling very blessed.

We wish you and yours a very Happy Thanksgiving. 

We are very thankful for all the people who have entered our lives over the last three years; customers, designers, reps, instructors, everyone!
We can't wait to see what's next.  We are truly blessed.

Enjoy the time with friends and family.  We will be closed Thursday, Friday and Saturday of Thanksgiving Weekend.  Back to our normal schedule on Tuesday, November 29th.

Nature has its way of letting us know that Christmas is 80 days away.

Well, the temperature has dropped 20 degrees in just the last 3 days. What a great reminder that the holidays are coming soon.  My favorites, actually.  (Even though I love a chocolate Easter bunny.) But the fall colors and all the decorations for Halloween and Christmas are so much fun.  When do you start putting up your Halloween decorations?  Or do you jump right into Christmas?

We had a wonderful 3 day crop this last weekend, and several of the crafters started on their Christmas cards. Some very creative cards using the newest Christmas lines and embellishments we have in stock now. The room got a good dose of glitter. The wool sweater using the Elizabeth Craft die turned out adorable. I was so excited. Those thinlit dies really do cut through wool and felt.  Oh the possibilities! 

We have a great selection of Halloween, Fall and Christmas paper and embellishments in stock. Not to mention all the items for your mixed media, coloring and painting needs. Check out the other tabs on the blog for the latest updates of what is in stock and the classes coming up. So much to see and do. The make-n-take table is full for you to be inspired.

Grab that cup of coffee or tea, check out ideas online and then come visit us.
Be inspired and create!

Unloaded the pallet!

In addition to all the wonderful product we have been getting in from Tim Holtz Halloween, Authentique, Carta Bella, Tonic etc., we just got in an entire pallet of goodies from Prima. 

Julie Nutting's 4 new Halloween themed doll stamps are in!  Lil' Witch stamp even comes with her very own die set.   Also newly released are the die sets for Rita, Valentina, Chiara and Audrey.  The die sets include one for the doll and a separate die for the dress and any add-on, like the boots or hat.  Each die set comes in its own plastic pouch with snap closure.   No more fussy cutting needed for these four girls. 

The two new lines from Prima, Rossibelle and Sweet Peppermint, are fantastic!  The colors, the ephemera, the flowers! Each line has 10 sets of coordinating flowers. And then there is the ephemera.  Sweet Peppermint ephemera even includes a small glass vial with a tree and snow in it. 

Oh, did I say flowers?  In addition to the flowers from the two lines, we also got in boxes and boxes of other flowers.  The colors are so vibrant.  You will want to create something just so that you can use these flowers. 

3D Wood Alpha Pieces by the box load.  Three sizes of letters: 1" 1.5" and 1.75", each size has two different styles.  Great for any of your creative projects. And there is new rhinestone strands in 5 colors, new Watercolor books, Watercolor Confections in Pastels, Ribbons and trims, pearls, Planner Glue Sticks, and Memory Hardware albums. 

And that's just the Prima product. Still to come:  New Distress Crayons, many Ranger products, Lawn Fawn, Pebbles, BoBunny....  I'm sure I've forgotten to list some.

Based on all the goodies being released, I guess summer is over and it's time to get back to crafting.
Now, where do I start. 

Be inspired and create.

Come on down and play!

On these really hot days, the air conditioner is running non-stop at the store. We have all these tables set up just waiting for you to come and play with us in our air conditioned store.  During our normal hours, Tuesday through Saturday, our tables are available for you to use.  No charge on a non-crop day for table space.  Check with us on Saturdays, before you come down, to be sure that our classes haven't taken up all the tables.  We love to see the projects you are working on.  And many of you have been meeting new people here, and setting dates to meet up again.  Love it!

New Christmas, Halloween and Fall papers are starting to come in.  I guess that means that summer will be soon over. 

Hope to see you soon.

Summer time!

It's July.  Vacation time is in full swing.  By the amount of outdoor and state papers going out the door many people are going on great roadtrips.  What do you have planned?  I just finished a great 6500 mile roadtrip across the Midwest.  Saw some beautiful scenery, and took many great pictures.  Now to get them into an album. We have a store full of the papers and embellishments to do that.  I just need to make up my mind on which line to use.  Maybe I will use them all.

We have a great lineup in July of teachers and classes.  So many new ideas!  Cards with LawnFawn and Chibitronics, Stampendous and Ranger products.  Check out the classes tab for all our upcoming classes. 

Need to get away for the day.  Come on down and spend the day crafting.  No charge when you come during regular business hours. Hope to see you soon.

We have great new classes and workshops lined up.  We are still working out the details on a couple more. We are excited to have the Gypsy Magpie herself join us in February.  Terri will be holding a workshop with 3 Easter projects. It's a hard choice, might have to do all three. Check out the "Classes" tab for more information.

May Flaum of 28 Lilac Lane will be holding her product launch here on Friday March 4th. Check out our "Introducing" tab. The colors of the buttons, sequins and beads are amazing.  She will be doing some make n takes and demo-ing her new goodies. Can't wait to run my fingers through all the buttons.

Probably missed a couple of things. You'll just have to come in and check it all out.

We had the most amazing time at the CHA Mega Show in Anaheim.  Our goal was to walk the entire floor this year, and we got it done.  Cruised by a couple of booths quickly, but took it all in. We each went down to Anaheim with a suitcase in a suitcase, and came back with two loaded suitcases a piece.  Did a little shopping in Santee Alley to help with that. 

Took some great classes this year; Tim Holtz's Distress Class, Dina Wakely, Stephanie Ackerman, Eileen Hull and Susan Kazmer.  Can't wait til the product comes in and we can start playing.  

Orders were placed with ADORNit, Ranger, Sizzix, My Sweet Petunia for the Misti Tool, Photoplay for Julie Nutting goodies, Elizabeth Craft Designs, American Crafts and Prima galore, just to name a few.  First shipments should be coming in a couple weeks.

Happy New Year.
Let's get inspired and create.
See you soon.
