We have been enjoying this weather, loving the cooler temp’s and the rain. I actually got to ride my scooter this week to the store, since it seems to be staying lighter later now. (I typically do not enjoy riding it in the dark) Though I will admit, going in early (8am) when it was 57 degrees was a bit “brisk” as Walt calls it. I told him nope, thats not brisk, that cold!!
It is time to set your clocks forward Saturday night when you go to bed
Have you heard of Diamond painting? We have been carrying it for a few weeks now. I have not put it into the newsletter yet, because honestly, it comes in and sells out super fast!! We do have a shipment expected within the next few days. The name is a bit misleading, as there is not any paint at all. It is a pre-printed canvas, that has adhesive on it, and it comes with this super shiny faceted “beads” that you put on it. They are simply beautiful!! If you’d like to give one a try, we have one at the counter that you can try out.
The deliveries are coming in! new Ranger arrived today, more bottles of the e6000 pump spray glue, Lawn Fawn (this is selling fast!) Concord & 9th, Stamperia, Sizzix, Crafters Companion and Hero Arts and Impression Obsession should be here anytime now… I received shipping notices that the new Graphic 45 and more new Stampendous shipped today!!
The “challenge” I mentioned last week is going strong! I think we have had 20 or so kits picked up. 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.
We want to thank each of you for your support and your friendship, which continues to bless us and make us smile every single day. We could not do what we do without each of you.

take care and we hope to see you soon
