Hi there! Well...we had a great weekend and we all survived! It was so much fun seeing all of our friends once again. We really missed those who couldn't make it and hope to see you next year (if not sooner). We received great feedback about our teachers and their classes. We are already looking at prospective teachers as we plan for 2023. If you were unable to attend, we have most of the items that were featured at Stamp Eacape in the store. Just stop by any time.
Thanks to everyone who inquired about me hobbling around at The Pines. I did saomething to my knee a couple of weeks prior to the event (no I didn't go to the doctor....no time for that!) so I tried to stay off my feet as much as possible. That put a lot of work on my trusty crew...especially Melissa! I owe a special thanks to Melissa, Robin, Linde, Barbie and Lori-Anne who helped before, during, and after the event. We have just about finished all of our follow-up work so the store will be back to normal soon.
We have been working on our Copic stock and have finally been able to get some of the new, smaller size, reinkers. We are also trying to restock some of the hard-to-get items like paper trimmers, blades, scissors, etc. Lori Craig showed the new OLO pens Saturday evening at Stamp Escape. She will be sending us all of the informatin on them soon. They are an interesting concept and may be something we will add to our alcohol pen stock if we know you are interested.
We would like your input on the tape for the ATG guns. The rolls of tape have been on back-order forever and have been moved back again to June 9th. Do you want us to look for another brand or are you sold on 3M? It is your call!
I also want to thank everyone who bought raffle tickets for the EMCSPCA Raffle Basket! We raised $1280 that will go towards stocking the new Eastern Madera County Animal Care and Adoption Center with medical supplies. The Center includes a clinic where all animals will be vet checked, vaccinated and treated. The clinic supplies are quite expensive so your donations are a big help. Thanks so much!
We hope to see you soon as we enjoy our beautiful Spring weather....
We received the new Taylored Expressions Powder Tool (for use when heat embossing) right before Stamp Escape, and sold out immediately! This tool is a unique design unlike any others.....(no it is not the tool that is being accused of copyright infringement on Facebook!) We have the tools on reorder so if you want one, let us know.
We have lots of goodies available at the store that were featured at Stamp Escape. You will want to take a look at the New Brushmarker Pro pens! They come in nice boxed sets and are wonderful to work with. We have lots of the floral dies from the newest Elizateth Craft Designs release. These dies were used in Els classes!
We have many of stamps and dies from the Pinkfresh April release and we also have the 4-cube sets of their inks. We ordered the new small die cutting machine from Hero Arts. The cutting bed is about 1/2 inch wider than other small machines and the price is great! We also have their tool holder and the individual blender brushes in small and medium. We have sold out of the twezers and flush cutters but those are on re-order.
We also have the WeR sets of magnets with tabs on reorder. Their Basic Tool Kit that has everything you need in the way of tools is also on reorder. You will like the new Lawn Fawn Clear Glaze and Sparkle Glaze. Both comes in the handy applicator like their glue.
I know there is lots more but if I don't get this off to you it will be another day late!!! Thanks again everyone for your support and friendship! Check us out on Facebook and look at future classes on our website.
