A busy little bee, I am!

Sorry I didn't post this morning...I've been working hard to get NEW items entered and ordered! Plus, the mermaid orders are coming in from all around the world, and we are trying to stay on top of those.

Here's some scoop:

* Restock of QuicKutz EZ All-in-One Storage Binders and die storage sheets, mini magnetic folders and dies. More dies are expected this week. If you haven't placed your order for 4x4s, you should! LOTS of 4x4s have been discontinued AND they are on SALE!! If you don't see it on our wall (which is very likely as we've been selling them like crazy), ask to see the QuicKutz book. Sale ends June 9th (unless QK sells out before then).
* New! Making Memories Great Escape travel collection - LOVE IT! In stock now - and make sure you check out the pennant pins.
* Sitting in our back room, waiting to be entered in our computer: Little Yellow Bicycle travel collection, Bind-it-All (including tools and all kinds of accessories and wires), Bo-Bunny new collections and restock of alphabet letters, plus lots MORE!

ATTENTION: if you use QuicKutz, you'll want to stay tuned for a special announcement on Tuesday!

Have a wonderful weekend!

She's back!

We've heard your requests and here ya go!

For the past several months, our exclusive QuicKutz mermaid has been sold out. Every week, we received phone calls and emails asking us to bring her back. Even QuicKutz asked us a few times to reorder because they were getting the same requests.

We listened and now she's back in stock!

Now available in our store and online.

Inspired Artist Workshop 2009

Last Wednesday, Janice, Melissa, Courtney, Susan and I left for Donna Downey's Inspired Artist Workshop in Concord, NC. She asked us to be part of her iCrew, a.k.a. Teacher's Assistants, for this 3 day event. Who could say no? So off we went...5 gals, a minivan and a box of Oreos.

*We all had an amazing week...lots of POSITIVE energy, AMAZING creativity and INSPIRING new friends
*We met some of the industry greats...Jenni Bowlin, Heather Bailey, Cathy Zielske, Lance Anderson, Kelly Rae Roberts, Theresa Collins, Sue Edmonson, Carol Wingert, Jennifer Stewart, Margie Romney-Aslett, and more. Way more. Some we've met before, others we got to meet for the first time. And, I can honestly say that crafters are the nicest people in the world...even the "celebrities":)
*We are INSPIRED, RENEWED and ready to be CREATIVE! Ask any one of us about it...we'd be glad to tell you how fabulous it really was.
*Next year will be her 3rd annual workshop. Interested in going? We are!

I know, I'm a slacker...
