I've been slackin in the reportin, but then, lately the new products have been flyin off the shelves faster than I can report. Here's a little reminder about the Tag Swap and a quick photo/description of what just arrived. And thank you for checkin in again!

Valentine Tag Swap - Still in progress. Your tags are due next Saturday, the 7th. Some are already here......really cool......Get with it! You'll be glad when you pick up yours on Valentine's Day, Saturday, February 14th. Very appropriate.

New Chalk Pad Colors - Really. We got Blackbird (it's black), Gray Whale (yes, gray), Popcorn (white - nice), Sour Apple (very interesting bluish green), Ocean (ooooh, so blue) and Toffee (pinkish taupe). Buy 'em - try 'em - you'll like 'em.

New Glues - New Favorites. Scrappy Glue - a favorite of one of our favorites, Miss Malone, this glue was once missing in action but now has been found. Try it, you'll like it. Alleenes Fast Grab Tacky Glue - Lisa's glue of choice. Always on the classroom trays. It's fast and tacky.

New Character Constructions - Oh Yeah Baby. Whole new collection called Bird & Bees Paperie. Very cool. Check it out!

New Ribbons - Yup.....really nice ones. New ones have chenile dots and are available in 5 colors. Several new colors of mini silk ribbon and now we have white and soft pink in the ivy leaf style. Brown with white dots is sheer.

That's it for today.....until next post.....Happy Stampin'!

Well, immediately after the demo on Saturday, I headed off to Dallas for the gift market. So, I apologize for not getting this up on Tuesday as I normally do.

Remember you must prepay for your classes to reserve your spot in class. Always bring your class kit with you. If you need a list of what it should include, please let us know.

Sweet Sentiments: Jan. 27, 29th & 30th - The cards in this class are sweet and can be used for Valentines or everyday. It uses one of Hero's newest stamp sets.

Doll Gift Box: Feb 5 & 6 - This is an incredibly darling box. It is a lovely piece of art all by itself, but when filled with candy or anything else, it is a gift with a gift.

Sweet Nature: Feb 10, 12, & 13th - Lovely cards created with the new series of stamps from Character Constructions.

Demo Day: Saturday, Feb 21st - Always Free, Always a Make-It-Take-It. March class schedule will be available. Don't miss it!

Splash of Asian: Feb 24, 26, & 27th - These cards are made from a Hero clear set with an asian theme. A unique way of using these stamps allows you to create a set of cards that will have you guessing "Is it Asian or not?". The price of this class includes the set of stamps.


If you didn't make it by on Saturday for Demo Day and would like to participate in our Valentine themed tag swap come by or give us a call. There is plenty of time to work on creating your tag masterpieces. I'll be happy to mail you a set of tags and instructions if you can't come by, so just "call me, don't be afraid, you can call me......." Tags will be due on February 7th which is just over two weeks away.

That's it for now......until next post....Happy Stampin'!

January 2009 Demo Day Announcements

That's right! Wow! Demo Day! Now that the holidays are over and everyone and everything is back to normal Demo Days are here again...... Remember it's always FREE and there is always a Make-It-Take-It. As usual the Make-It-Take-It is a surprise, but it's always fun and exciting so don't miss it. I have been told that it will feature a new clear set of stamps from Impression Obsession that is Oh So Cool (Is that something like Ooh La La?????). Lisa's class schedule will be available for February as well so come prepared to sign up for something really cool.

We had such overwhelming response to our Valentine Tag Swap last year that it's been requested again. Once again we'll be providing 10 tags (+1 for your bag tag) for you to alter and swap with others. Pick up your tags during Demo Day and return them by Friday, February 7th. That's three weeks to get them done. They'll be photo'd and sorted, ready for you to pick up on Valentine's Day, Saturday, February 14.

Due to the overwhelming response to the email about Character Constructions, we sold out in 2 days. We have already reordered and hope to have them for Saturday.

That's it for today.......until next post.....Happy Stampin'!
