Monday Report.......

Hey Bloggerettes,

Just in...........

-the 3 new lines of Basic Grey

Jovial (Christmas) very nice palette - color combos never seen before

Pyrus (Autumn) if you like fall colors then this line is for you (except for the slaughter deer paper)

Wander (Travel) original and cute

On the weekend some Prima flowers arrived. Not many left -Geez they go fast!

A friend and I went on a little road trip today to check out a venue 100.6 kilometers from the store. If the price is right, you can start packing your stuff. It's quite amazing. (Sorry about the spilled coffee - I feel terrible!)

Gotta go - it's quite late.

Timmy, tim, tim......

Hey Bloggerettes,


Tim Holtz Stamp sets

Graphic 45 - "Steampunk Debutante" collection (pretty darn cool)

Bo Bunny - Halloween collection "Whoo-ligans"

Scotch (not the libation) - Advanced Tape Glider (the new pink one)

That's only box 2 of 3 that arrived today. Don't ya love UPS!

It's sooooo good to get back to the Shabby Chic layout classes. "Miss Lynn" is so inspirational.

In My Humble Opinion:
The count-down is on - I can hardly wait to go to Vegas with my buds! The annual Teresa Collins event is going to be "uber-fab" - the sponsorship has grown 100 fold and the new venue is quite an upgrade. I found out last night that some customers will also be there. YEAH! We won't be able to fit the "schwag" in our luggage this year! Also, I'll be able to send updates through my new birthday iPhone (thanks Mom & Daddy). I love, love, love it. I won't have to haul my laptop anymore. Apparently I bring everything but the kitchen sink - tell me - are 8 pairs of black sandals too many for 7 days?????? (those are just the black ones - there are other colors involved in the wardrobe!) Purses are another story - and the jewelry!!!

TGIF - and my birthday!

Hey Bloggerettes,

It's great to be another year older - the alternative isn't that great!

The store is now operating on regular hours of business:

Mon-Fri 10-9pm
Sat 10-5pm
Sun 12-5pm

Monday,Sept 6 LABOR DAY HOURS: 12-5
(Shabby Chic II Classes start at 6PM on Monday)

Lots of classes are being scheduled. Check the "Stuff We Teach" on the website.

The Basic Grey Calendars are here.
7 Gypsies Shadowbox Tray (12x16) arrived today. Another cool item is their Library Drawer. Susan has already claimed them to do an Advent Calendar Class - stay tuned.
All the Stickles colors are back in stock.

In My Humble Opinion:
Growing old gracefully has its' challenges - I was waiting on a young couple the other day and I'm sure they will have nightmares about me - We were all at the Art Bar and I was showing them something when a rather large heat wave washed over me - beaded sweat on upper lip and brow, bright crimson face, left a sweaty palm print on the Art Bar surface (I had to get a paper towel to mop it up - YUCK!), almost slipped out of my sandals with the sweaty feet. Try to handle all of this and not miss a beat!!! It's quite a feat - I think I'll make up imaginary diseases to explain it like "Shesweatsalotosis" or "Aquabodicockis".
