This has been a class filled week at the store, so many fun techniques going on…glossy paste cards, embossing, shading, pop ups, layering and gel pens all being used!!
we have new papers, new oil based pencils, new stamps and dies from several companies.
We are also now excited to be carrying wood items from Foundations. Monika will be teaching a class with those later this month. Great way to decorate for the holidays, and they make super great gifts!
We also have a Craft Fair coming up on Saturday 10/21 from 9-3pm
This is a personal note:
As I sit here and write this my heart is distracted by all of the fires burning now. We had a house fire here in the house we raised our sons in – in 1999. (Not connected to any wildfire, it was only our house) For our fire, no one was hurt, and we were able to re-build our home and move forward. Though we lost many loved pets. (Our faith helped us immensely)
There are many families who will be lose precious memories, pets, and items that have been in their families for perhaps generations. I know how that feels. The smells of the fire, the soot that does not wash out of your shoes, hands, skin as you look through what the fire leaves behind. The things that you go to reach for months from now, and only then realize they are also gone forever.
I am not sure what all of you believe in, if you believe in a higher power, or in a higher purpose.
For those of you who do, please make time to send prayers, and good thoughts to all of those who are being impacted by these fires.
take care and have a great week, we hope to see you soon
