its graduation time

it is hard to believe that it is graduation time again. we have our first graduation line in.

along with the graduation is marching band.

kensington garden is one of my favorite lines. i really like how they mixed the reds with the blues and greens. maybe it is because i like blues so much. it is flowered without being super girly. i can use this with my boys.

Coaster Class March 28 (2-4)

In this class you will be making four marble coaster tiles. Each tile is finished to be water resistant do the images you choose to stamp will be saved. You will also be finishing the bottom so they won't slide or scratch your surface. Call the store to reserve you a spot for this class. Pay $17 and leave with four really great coasters!


April's Card Class

We had a great response to our March card class and so I wanted to give you a sneak peek at what is coming for April. These class kits are very limited so if you are interested call the store and reserve you a spot!

backyard fun

this week we have the backyard series from american crafts. this line of 24 patterned papers is so versatile. you could do easter, spring, rainy days play, bugs, and so much more. these fun papers will definitely get you in the mood for spring if you are not there already. they have fun, vibrant, springy colors. here is a small sampling of the papers.
in my humble opinion the best part of this line is the flair (but that could be because of the obsession i have with flair that some of you know about). stickers and rubons finish out the embellishments for this line.
one of the things that was most asked for was thickers. you asked and i ordered. there are the 2 colors of the shapes you see below (i couldn't get a colored picture). i also ordered fonts and tons of them 9 fonts anywhere from 1-3 colors in each font. colors are: pink, red, green, black, yellow, baby blue, green and white. styles are foam, chipboard, glittered, puffy (my favorite), and vinyl. if you can't find one you like then it is not made. hehe.

you ever have that day where nothing works?

i am having one of those today. for some strange reason my email will let me look at what i have recieved but it won't let me reply. so if you sent me an email i have read it and will send you an answer as soon as possible.

plus, rachael is at the without me and the electricity goes out. and we all know that when the power goes out things don't just turn back on when the power goes back on.

and on a personal note some kid at school threw a rock and hit my middle one in the head so he has a hole the size of a pencil eraser on his head. he told me when we got home his head was better and he could play the wii.

also while i was at school one of the other moms got stung by a wasp and apparently is allergic. so i took her son to play on the playground until her husband got there. the sad thing was i didn't even know his name, so he was "sweetie" and we did just fine.

that's what i get for taking the day off. lol.


new product on thursday

just to avoid confusion, the new easter and st. patrick's day paper won't be available until thursday march 5th. we always put our new product out on thursday, but not all of you know that! hope to see you then.

sticker sheets for happy easter

this is only a few of the patterns of paper that came with this line. i wish i could have got the images bigger because that chick on the last paper is too cute.

may the luck of the irish be with you. i really love the muted greens of this st patty's day line.
