lego and so stylish

new product to hit our store. the creative imagination's so stylish line is very glamorous. this chic line is perfect for many occasions, from prom to just dressing up. here is a sampling of some of this line. There is flocked, foiled and double sided paper, stickers, rubons, and bling.

we also have legos. this paper is embossed and feels like raised legos and embellishments are epoxy stickers which are super cool. This line has papers, brads, flat stickers, and epoxy stickers.


creative cafe project

this week's project is a super cute layout. the price for this layout is $5.

if you have never been to the artbar for creative cafe here is what it is about. each week there is a page or little project.
  • most of the projects take anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes.
  • they vary in price depending on what the project is.
  • all you need to bring is yourself. all product needed is provided.
  • we do the cafe wednesdays from 1-3 and anytime on saturday.
  • you can buy a clubcard: you prepay for $20 worth of projects, then when you like the project you come in and make it. we mark that amount off your card. when you fill your card up you get $5 free towards another artbar project.
last week we got in new creative cafe buttons. i have had several people ask about them. here is a photo of the spirit line with the flowers and square buttons. they also came in the lucky line. these are really cool.

have a great day.

in the beginning

i am constantly looking for the best way to get information out to you guys. i am hoping this format will please many of you.

as i thought about whether or not i wanted to create a blog for the store i began to see all the possibilities that a blog could bring. it is an easier format to change than the website. i can add pictures and information with the click of a button. so you will see some updates and changes to the website in the next few days as i begin to bring some of that constantly changing information to this blog.

another benefit of a blog is that i can let rachael post on here as well. so you will be able to see some of the great things that she has been doing. our goal is to post something 2-3 times a week, but in the beginning with the excitement of something new there may be new posts daily.

rachael and i have been brainstorming on new ideas and i have a new excitement that i hope you will be able to see in the store.
