A few of my favorite things :)

We hope you're enjoying this beautiful holiday weekend :)

Please note that we are closing early at 5:00 p.m. on Monday in honor of Labor Day.

Here's a look at a few new things in the store that make me happy:

Adorable monsters and fun eyeballs by SEI! Perfect for that "lil monster" in your life :)

The amazingly popular Tool Box totes! There are a few reasons why I love these totes...they fit your Silhouette AND your trimmer...the colors are bright (pink, lime, navy)...and the hibiscus pattern is fun.

This Wave Crashers collection also carries the hibiscus theme :)

The new Fall collection by Moxxie reminds me of cooler days ahead...

And cooler days ahead means Halloween and Thanksgiving are just around the corner!

The picture isn't the greatest (sun glare), but check out these fun alphabet chipboard stickers by Cosmo Cricket! (And, while you're at it, take note of the cute Halloween ones next to it.)

This week, we welcomed a new adhesive company to our store...Helmar. You will see products including tape runners, liquid glue dots (so that you can make glue dots whatever thickness you like), spray on adhesive (great for vellum and revitalizing Silhouette/Cricut mats), adhesive remover (perfect for removing any ahesive, including the gunk on your Silhouette/Cricut mats), liquid glue and 450 Quick Dry. 450 Quick Dry is a stainless, crystal clear, fast drying glue ideal for all kinds of crafting projects. You can even use it on clothes because it WON'T come off in the wash machine! (If you love Zip Dry, you'll love this too!)

Little stickers by Karen Foster! See the FAMILY one on the bottom right...the one with the family stick figures on the window?!? It makes me want to take a picture of my car and scrapbook it! Just think of how old your car will look to your kids when they are flipping through your scrapbook in 20 years :)

Glazed cardstock by Bazzill! Love, love, LOVE this line! This is perfect for both scrapbookers AND card makers. And...see the white? Well, you can't really see the patterns on it in this picture, but here's an idea...use your ink and your Ink Blending Tool (a la Tim Holtz)...rub the paper with any ink color(s) you want...and the glazed parts will actually RESIST the ink. This way, you can make the paper ANY color and still maintain the pattern!

Storage bins in 3 new colors! A friend gave me this non-scrapbooking idea...using your vinyl (or whatever else you want), label a storage bin with your child's name and use it to store all their school papers. What a GREAT idea! No more searching the house for that one certain form that has to be returned by Monday :)

I know it's early to start thinking about Christmas...but...check out these adorable brads by My Mind's Eye. If you haven't used these embellishments before, they make a beatiful addition to your page :)

We hope you have a SAFE and ENJOYABLE holiday weekend!
