These Things Thursday...

I've got 'these things' for you today. 

First, thank you to everyone who came in during our Small Business Saturday promotion. We've said it before and we'll say it again, we have the BEST customers in the world and we love bringing you the latest and greatest of what we do. Our raffle winners have been picked and notified. Congratulations go to Deb Jurek, Janelle Jones, Kathy Kurtz, Karen Levy, and Josie Robbins.

We still have our sale table up and are running several in-store sale promotions going on. 

We also offer a Christmas Wish List service for those of you who would like specific items for Christmas but who have gift givers who are clueless. Leave us your list and let your shoppers know. When they come in we will pull your list and help them shop! 

Jennifer Snyder from Prima will be coming back to the store next weekend for another Prima paper doll class, this time featuring their boy stamps. We have great fun each time Jennifer comes and this time we will be changing it up a bit with the guys.

I've also got some new stuff and a little inspiration for you. These are the new Chameleon markers. They are alcohol ink based like Copics, but they have a built in shading feature. Mona will be demoing these markers on Demo Sunday, December 21.  

Look at these cards made from the sticker sheet next to it and several of your favorite holiday word dies; simple, classic and easy!

We also have these new watercolor dual tipped pens. They come in this sturdy carrier that makes them easy to transport to all your crops and this view only shows you a third do the set (you can see the pinks and yellows peeking out on the right side). 

Now for some inspiration and decoration. This time of year I love walking into the store and seeing how creative Shaon and Dimitra have been decorating the store. I love new stuff and those items that we use over and over. 

Several years ago I believe Dimitra made this garland and it's been one of my favorites ever since! Torn and folded Graphic 45 holiday papers, gold wooden beads, tulle and a variety of ribbons make this a colorful yet simple garland anyone can make! I look forward to it every year!

I'm loving this great card using a chevron embossing folder and a to-go cup die and a tree die. So cute!

Lastly, from Wendy, the unofficial leader of Mona's fan club, here is her take on Mon's box cards. As you can see, Wendy likes sailboats!

See you next week!
