And now it's November ... seriously ?

I cannot believe that it is already November. October is my FAVOURITE month and it went by in a flash ... I don't think I even had time to enjoy it. I must do better with November !!

Anyway, this has been a bit of a whirlwind week because of appointments in the city so I am a bit behind. (Hate when I lose a day !!) So I am in here doing my best to unpack and get things organized. We'll see what I get done !!

KIT OF THE WEEK : This week it is Christmas cards made with the lovely, bright, refreshing paper from Little Yellow Bicycle called Wonder Wishes. I love this stuff !! The colours are bright and true. Beautiful !! I loved it so much I made another kit for a later date using it. Just too nice to use once !! So ... you know the drill ... you get all the supplies pre-cut, folded, stamped ... for all 3 cards for $5. Leave a comment here or on Facebook if you want any saved for you (the Christmas ones sell out quickly. I have made more this week but don't wait too long !!)
The paper Wonder Wishes is also available as well as a bunch of really nice embellishments.
There are some great little journalling tags ... which may show up in a kit *hint hint* ... as well as some wonderful pins, tapes, stickers, mini papers & albums, and card stickers. You will find one of the card stickers in your kit. It is a clear backed sticker with a greeting or sentiment appropriate for a card. This is a great way to make cards if you don't have a lot of stamps ... and the colours match perfectly !!
There are 24 stickers in the package for $3.99 - a very economical way to make cards !!
lots of new dies & embossing plates. Some of the embossing packs ($12.99) have 5 plates in them !! And the dies are beautiful ... snowmen, reindeer, music notes, Santa, etc... There is a long thin die of Santa & his sleigh and reindeer that didn't make the picture for some reason ...but it is really cute !! The large Bigz dies are only $21.99. And that little snowman ? He is only $5.99 !! Can't you picture him on all your cards ?!

OH ! And there is a 40% off sale on the Hallowe'en stock ... paper, stamps, embellishments, etc... That's 40% off regular priced items. Stock up !! Then it's .... booooo .... gone !!

Don't forget ... the 40% off table is still there ... new things added all the time !!
BEADS : And this month I tackle the beads !!! There will be a major reorganization and revamp... and I am excited !!

The purses are $34.99 and are worth every penny ! Well made, great grommets, magnetic closure, metal feet, pockets, good lining ... 3 styles in stock ... not sure how hard it will be to get more !! I have the Butterflies, Amusements, and Tickets.
