Are you loving Spring?


Hi there!

After a rough winter, we are sure loving spring. Bass Lake is so full, and everything is green. The wildflowers are just crazy!! I hope it is beautiful where you are. We are seeing that even in the aftermath of fires, nature never ceases to surprise us. The colors are such an inspiration.

Speaking of inspiration, we are quickly approaching The Great Yosemite Stamp Escape 2019! This last month prior to the event is filled with excitment. There is also a lot of stress as we are trying to fit two months work into about two weeks. We have great teachers again this year, and of course, have been in constant communication with them. It seems like all we do is write orders!!$$!! The fun part is when the donated items for door prizes and goody bags arrive. 

For attendees. I have just emailed your list of items you will need to bring to the event. We are stocking the shelves today with many of the items the teachers have suggested you have at class. As always, we try to keep it to a minimum, but stop by or call if you need something. 

As we have been ordering for Stamp Escape, we also order for the store. Keep in mind, that even if you are unable to attend Stamp Escape, there will be lots of product related to the classes that we will have in the store following the event. You will need to give us a day or two to recover and get everything unpacked! 

We have the "Life Changing Blender Brushes" coming in again. These brushes are so popular, we have not been able to keep them in stock. They really are amazing for blending without leaving "nose prints". We hope to have the sets we ordered in soon. Stamp Escape attendees wil get a chance to try them out. 

If you haven't seen our new huge selection of sequins and "Sparkletz", you are missing out. They are perfect for shaker cards and as an embellishment. They come in every color under the sun and then some!

Our order from Penny Black came in last month. As usual, it did not disappoint. We have already had to place reorders. We have a sample board featuring some of the stamps and a very cool die to inspire you. 

The Dream Drops from Tonic have flown out. I hope you got a chance to watch the videos I sent out in an email this past month. They featured several great products including the Dream Drops. We have all colors coming back in soon. We sure like the colors of the Vintage drops. They are very dusty colors and would look great with papers like Graphic 45. Also from Tonic are their new Semtiment Strips dies. We love these long slender dies. 

From Avery Elle, we have the highly touted mesh bags. They are handy for so many things....I even think I will take a couple on my next trip! The Avery Elle storage pockets are back in two sizes and are perfect for the Stamp-n-Storage magnetic boards for storing your dies!

Sorry to be so brief this month, but we are all in a dither! Melissa is having heart attacks on a regular basis. She quits at least once a week! Please be nice to her... :) 

Make sure you check out the classes this month. There are some great cards!

Hopefuly next month I will be back with more info for everyone. 

Take care, Sharon
