road construction

A Funny Thing Happened.....

on the way to the shop the other day.....  As I approached 164th and pennsylvania I noticed a long line of traffic.  what the hey?  at 9:30 am?  this is not right!

guess what!  the road construction is beginning.  yes.... little things have been going on, but now it looks like we will really see some activity.

the street lights at 164th & penn have been removed in preparation for the intersection improvement.  it is now a 4 way stop sign intersection.

that means.....  yes, you guessed it..... looooong lines of cars approaching our shopping center.  

if you have an evening class, you might want to plan a few extra minutes of travel time.

it's not unbearable, just a bit inconvenient.  and the inconvenience will be long forgotten when the new intersection is finished.

i'll keep you posted as new bits of construction begin.  after all, we will all be happy when pennsylvania itself is 4 lanes and smooooooooth.  won't we?  i will. 

that's it for now..... until next post..... happy creatin'!

December 2012 class schedule

and a little bit of nonsense
Whoa!  Did I promise to get this schedule online by Wednesday?  What was I thinking?  The Thanksgiving Holiday got in the way, so I apologetically ask forgiveness.
I hope your Thanksgiving Day left you feeling thankful.  I know mine did.  My husband and I have only our moms with us now, so it was a blessing to be able to share this day with both of them together.

Now!  On to the business of the day.... the class schedule for December!  As this is a busy time for all, 2 of the classes will be offered only once. 
Tuesday, December 4th
 Miss the October Stamp Carving Class?  Kelly Walker returns!  Took the first class but want more? Fear not!  You will carve an entirely different stamp and make an entirely different project!  New students will need the carving tools which are available at the store.
December 6 & 7
12?  Really?  Can you say BONUS?  Looks like Lisa couldn't leave a one of them out so you will make 15 wonderful gift tags to use on your Christmas packages.  Quick and Simple, you will be charged up to make more.....  Don't miss this opportunity to get started.
Sunday, December 9
Ah-mazing!  So detailed.  Uses a new box from Graphic 45, papers from the City Sidewalks collection by Pink Paislee and Tim's new Snowflake rosette die.  Tres Magnifique!  Sign up now.....  only one class available!
Dec 13th &14th
Unspoken idea in my head.  Lisa must have ESP.  Her vision? CUTER!  A must do for you! 
Saturday, December 15

That's it for now..... Until next post..... Happy Creatin'!

Thanksgiving Holiday
Here's a Heads Up ....  We are gonna take a 2 day break for Thanksgiving.  And EEK!  It's next week!  So here is our Thanksgiving holiday schedule:
Tuesday, Nov 20th  -  10am to 6pm
Wednesday, Nov 21  -  Closed
Thanksgiving Day  -  Closed
Friday, Nov 23  -  10am to 6pm
Saturday, Nov 24th  -  10am to 5pm
Thinking about doing a little something special on Friday and Saturday, but the idea isn't quite formulated just yet.  Check back for details.
You know Tim, he just can't help himself!  He has created another fun set of "blueprint" stamp sets.  There is one for Valentine's Day and Easter, as well as a patriotic set and of course the ever perfect "mini" set with all three designs in one fab set.  To see some cool artwork done with them, see TIM HOLTZ'S BLOG.  We have them ordered and they are beginning to ship next week, so if you want one, two, three or even all four of them, let us know and we will save the set(s) of your choice for you.
Some of our suppliers are so nice..... they just provided us with a link to several catalogs you can browse.  See anything you like and you can tell us to order it for you.  Simply click on the link below these pictures to shop from the convenience of your own computer while dressed in your comfy pjs and slippers.
Here is the complete Spring Catalog which includes many of the products you ask about on a regular basis.....
It is so cool to be able to give these tools to you.  I hope you will take advantage of the opportunity to see these catalogs.  Enjoy!
That's it for now..... Until next post..... Happy Creatin'!

What's happening

MHF House News
MHF House?  What's THAT?  Well, you may have noticed lately I've been calling My Heart's Fancy the House.  That's cuz I feel that you are a guest in my House when you come to visit.   Most days I think I make you feel at home.  When I don't I hope you will forgive me.  Anyway, there are things going on in the House so here's the news.....

 The photo kinda says it all, but it's exciting and we have them coming.  All 12 seasonal distress inks now in Stains!  Should be here by demo day (oh yes..... this Saturday!).


That's right..... It's Saturday from 10am to 4pm.  Come and Go.... Always a FREE Make-it-Take-it.....  Class schedule for December will be ready.  Lisa has a bunch of great classes in mind and I think you will find them quite timely.


Speaking of classes, there are still a few openings in the two remaining November classes.....Winter Wonderland Box and Christmas Delight Cards. Remember to take a second look at them on Demo Day or look at the November Class Schedule for details! 


Be sure you pick up the swap materials when you come to Demo Day.  I think you're gonna like this one.   Instead of 1 option, you'll have several.  Plan to have some extra fun with this one!

That's about it for now.  Hope you will join us Saturday for all the fun of Demo Day.....

Until next post..... Happy Creatin'!
