Our class was so much fun tonight! It was “Getting Ready for the Holidays”. We made gift card holders. Chris is so amazingly talented and her samples are just simply stunning. I’ll put all the pictures up and you can see for yourself.


Even more amazing is that we got our act together enough to make 5 extra kits AND written instructions with photos!! WOW-EE!!


Time keeps ticking….. November 15, 2007

Time keeps ticking….so slowly! And yet certain times of the day just ZOOM by!! Why is this?

Well, we just can’t wait until “next door” as we affectionately call our future retail space will be 100% complete. Day after agonizing day we see little bits of progress. We are now at the point of the floor being painted but we can’t walk on it for 2 days! So much for moving things over there.

BUT…when all of this waiting is over and the store is expanded to it’s full space THEN we’ll have oh so much more room to spread out the workspace/art lounge.

As I lay in bed at night I envision all sorts of table layouts that will optimize the square footage and reduce the bottle neck phenomenon that happens when we have certain workshops.

Christina has been exceedingly generous with her ordering all sorts of goodies for us to use in the studio. We now have a StamPress and dozens (really, I mean DOZENS) of rubber texture plates.

It really is hard to actually “work” around here…all I want to do is play all day.

Even now as I type I’m thinking of all the projects I “Should” be doing…..Better get up off my bottom and get to work!

So many fun new things in the store! November 14, 2007

It’s like Christmas around here!! We are getting new boxes every day:) My favorite new arrivals are the darling stamps from Daisy Bucket! They are all just so darling and little.

My other love affair is with the new papers from Scenic Route…the Roxbury line is just a fun and festive holiday line!

Here are a few pictures…

That’s right…if all goes according to plan we will have the expansion of the store open next week sometime. Today the contractors were here and primed the floor and tomorrow (fingers crossed) the paint will go down. Then we need to be patient and wait 72 hours until move the racks and all in!!
We have so much new product waiting to move in it is just making me crazy! But good things come to those who wait…RIGHT???

I am looking on the bright side and focusing on all of the fun things that we will be able to do when we the extra square footage is ready…here is my list of things I am looking forward too!

    • expanded cropping space
      more room for product
      Creative Cafe happy hours
      a kids play area
      our holiday open house
      office space

      That’s a good list! Keep thinking happy construction thoughts!
