Hello everyone;

March is here, sometimes I think the days are going by faster and faster, where did February go? March brings us bright colors, flowers and fun new sayings in so many bands of stamps & dies!

Today, just today we received 7 boxes of new goodies, Lawn Fawn arrived last Friday,  Art Impressions, Impression Obsession, Hero Arts, Ranger, and can you say “oh my” the new Dylusions Dyalog items have arrived. Based on the idea of a travelers journal, Dyan Reaveley has created a fun way to customize a journal just for you!  unique covers, and so many inserts, from pre-printed backgrounds, plain ones, lined, doted, black, grids and more. They just arrived. so fun, and easy to write in, doodle in, stamp, paint etc..  These were just released, and I am having a lot of fun with mine. Dyan’s new stamps arrived this week, along with more collage papers from Dina. . . Scribble sticks from Dina! New sizzix dies from Tim Holtz, Elizabeth Craft dies, and lots of new papers! We also have one Gemini in stock (great electric die-cutting machine). As expected our first shipment of the E6000 spray adhesive sold out quickly, the new shipment arrived yesterday. You are going to love this for your die cuts!

The “challenge” I mentioned last week will be ready to be picked up by noon on this Friday! March 2nd. You can pick up your kit, for only $1. Then you have until March 16th to return your completed card, project etc to us. We will pick different people each month to vote, select winners (yes winners with an S) and give out some cool and fun prizes. We will also post some, maybe all, of the ones turned in to us in upcoming newsletters.  We are going to try this for 3 months, to see how it all goes… so, if you think it will be fun, come on in and pick up your kit!

We are also trying out our “make n takes are fun” events, on one Saturday morning a month, from 9:30-12. We will have at least 5 different make n takes available for you to purchase at $4 each. You can purchase as many as you like, it is first come first serve, then you can make them here, or take them home with you. Any kits not sold will be put on our pre-made kit wall.  We had our first one last Saturday and had a great turnout!  Thank you!!! the next one is Saturday March 24th – mark your calendars to come join us.

We have something new we are trying out here. Check out the class on Thursday March 15th. It is all about journaling about your Bible. Not in your Bible, in a regular lined journal (you provide).  There are a lot of people who journal in their Bible. I just can’t bring myself to do it, no judgement for people who do,  just my grandma’s voice in my head telling me not to color in my Bible)  We have a new option for you, Gail has written a book (you get it included in the cost of the class) that guides you to certain verses, then shows you options on journaling about them.  We have included a few samples in this newsletter for you to take a look at. Gail has taught this at many locations. I have more samples in the store, as well as the book if you’d like to see it.  let me know if you have any questions.

As always, we want to wish you all a wonderful week, full of friends and laughter.

take care and we hope to see you soon

Walt & Roxanne
