Hump Day, New Year's Eve and New Year's Day

Do you keep losing track of the days? With all the holidays, I can't figure out whether it's a Monday or a Friday!

Tomorrow is Wednesday and that means it's Hump Day. Since we'll be closing early, we won't have our usual Hump Day Happy Hour. HOWEVER...we will have new, $5 kits available starting at 10 a.m. on Wednesday!

Wednesday is also New Year's Eve - we'll be open until 4 p.m. so please plan accordingly.

Also, remember that we are open for a FREE crop on January 1st. The last time I looked at the list, I think we were up to 11 people. If you'd like to join us, give us a call! It's totally free and a wonderful way to start 2009!

Have a GREAT day and enjoy this wonderful weather :)

New items from Basic Grey and Imaginisce!

Twitterpated collection by Imaginisce
(a GREAT fit with the QuicKutz Woodland Creatures dies!)

Bittersweet collection by Basic Grey
(the new QuicKutz Elegant Essentials line will be here on Friday, January 2nd and will nicely compliment this collection!)
Remember the Basic Grey Christmas Card Kit? If not, it's probably because we sold out in about 2 days! (And, we couldn't order more because they sold out too.)
With the Bittersweet Collection, Basic Grey has introduced a new kit. Use it for cards or as scrapbook page embellishments...either way, get it before it's gone :)

I'm feelin' some Chemistry...

A new Valentine inspired line from Cosmo Cricket! What we like about this line is that it's not just for February 14th. It's for all the loves in your, family, dogs, friends, sunshine, cookies...ANYthing that you hold near and dear to your heart :)

And, we've restocked a couple of the Blackboard mini albums. They are just like chipboard...except black. This means you don't have to cover them with paper or paint - thus saving you sweet, precious time!

Ta Da!

We'd like to introduce you to a new vendor...Ta Da Creative Studios! This collection, Twinkly Tidings, is absolutely beautiful. It's much nicer in person than on this's got a very slight, elegant shimmer to it AND it's double sided. Also, there are 2 die cut cardstock sheets that nicely compliment the paper.

Come in, check it out, and let us know what you think!

Happy Hump Day!

Join us today any time between 4:30 - 6:30 p.m. TODAY for a layout with Courtney! Bring $5 and yourself...we'll take care of the rest.

Days Gone By

I just love this poem that was sent to me by one of our customers (thanks April!) and wanted to share...enjoy!

Days Gone By
Author: Unknown

The special book upon the shelf,
Was made with many hands.
Our ancestors who posed back then,
All came from different lands.
Their pictures were all tucked away,
And rarely did we see,
The importance of these treasures-
The start of you and me.
The history of our families,
Now here in black and white.
Preserved with special care and time,
Each page is done just right.
When time permits,
we take it down,
And think of days long past.
Our hopes, our dreams, our heritage,
All safe and made to last.
