I hope you all have a great weekend planned to celebrate the holiday. It is hard to believe we are over half way to Christmas! I know that because we just started placing orders for Christmas themed products! We had an online meeting with Spellbinders this week so we got to see everything that will be released over the next four months. We placed our order for items that can be shipped soon. Even though we were able to see all of the new samples, they only allow us to order as items will be available. As I have mentioned before, they are really on top of things when it cones to keeping the retailers informed.
Later this month we will participate in a larger virtual show that is put on by the rep-group we work with. There are some new vendors with the group so that will be interesting to see what they have. This "show" will take place over several days and will include virtual classes and private meetings with the vendors. We hope to see lots of fun new products.

Melissa puts a lot of work into her classes, and this is a great opportunity for those of you who do not live in our area to take one of her classes. Even if you live close by and just want to craft in your jammies, this is an opportunity for you, too!
Let us know if you are interested in more virtual classes and we will see what we can do!
Have a safe and fun weekend!
I had a revelation the other day....I saw the new releases from Memory Box and decided MB and I are on the same wavelength. You know how you feel you always find what you are looking for with a certain company? I realized that I have always liked what I see at Memory Box. We have an order coming so watch for a Memory Box class in the near future.
I hope you are sitting down....the 3M ATG tape is finally here, after months and months of being unavailable. For those who love their ATG gun, we have tape...and plenty of it! We ordered 30 packs of 2....but received 60 packs of 2. Somehow the system thought we wanted 30X2....oh well! I certailny will not be returning them as they are like pure gold! And speaking of pure gold, besides being unavailable for so long, they took a pretty hefty price hike! I guess when you are the only game in town like 3M, you can do that.
We have ordered the new Warm Wishes Christmas paper from Graphic 45. It is a beautiful collection and will help us all get in the holiday spirit when it arrives. It is versitle and traditional at the same time. We will let you know when it is here.
I am not sure I told you that following Stamp Escape we we decided to stock the Pink Fresh Ink Cube sets in the store. They are sets of four shades of a color. We like the fact that they are inky and it is fun to have four shades of a color for some of our beautiful florals and other images. They are a good way to get lots of colors without breaking the bank.
Speaking of Stamp Escape, I just contacted The Pines again for the information I needed on my contract. I hope to have the info by the end of next week. I will send out an email as soon as registration is open so you can secure your spot and make reservations at The Pines. Check us out on Facebook and take a peek at the class schedule so you can sign up for in-store classes.
