August Has Arrived !

It's August , my friends. Already !
Lots to talk about this week ... let's go !

* new paper from Crate Paper ... "Little Bo Peep" ... really cute baby paper - vintage style. There are 2 different 12x12 sheets of tags & journalling cards that would make really quick & easy cards. Also available - stickers & 6x6 pads.

* YEE HA !! Get your inner cowgirl/boy on ... CowGIRL and CowBOY themed paper from Creative Imaginations and Best creations ( western glittered journalling cards perfect for 12 cards !!) Just in time for Exhibition scrapping !

* Maya Road - hexagons & leaves

* a few more papers ... for the beach lovers & animal lovers out there ...

* some of the pre-orders are starting to be shipped ... that means exciting stuff in the weeks to come ...

I have just discovered a stash of metal - beads, findings, bookmarks, etc ... - that I will be unpacking today. Watch for those this week.

* lovely necklaces featuring Swarovski Crystal facetted pear drops. The drops are $3.50 and come in jet, olivine, and ruby. The Tierra Cast pinch bails are $1.25 and the necklaces are $1.99. Add a 6 cent jumpring and you have a gorgeous necklace for under $7.00. And in less than 5 minutes !!

* I have bagged up some of the acrylic flowers. bags of 50 pieces for $3.50.

* new charms ... wiener dogs, elephants, cats, and cupcakes. Too cute !!
* and another 26lbs of beads has just been shipped to me ... so more next week !!

**note : Last week's flower earring kits sold out quickly so please note that I have made up another couple dozen kits ... various colours and various metals (antique copper, antique bronze, and silver).
(No changes to kits.)**

Remember these bracelets ?
Well, they're back in many different colours !!

This week's kit is really just the materials (beads & spacers) . I have found that when I include the clasp, wire, and crimps , it is sometimes difficult. Some people want a different clasp, some don't want the wire ... etc ... So in order to try to keep everyone happy, I am just packaging up the beads & spacers. You supply the wire, crimps, and clasp. But don't worry - if you are just starting - a roll of wire is only $3.99, crimps $1.99, and clasps start at 39 cents. The wire will make at least 30 bracelets ... because you won't be able to stop at one !!
The kits are available in MANY colour combinations. Great gifts too !! Only $4.00.

Card Kit : Sorry but there is no card kit this week. I just had too much to do & didn't feel all that well. Next week !

REMINDER : The Nova Scotia Breast Screening Van is at Soldier`s Memorial starting August 20th. Remember to phone for your mammogram appointment ... 1-800-565-0548. A little squish for a whole lot of peace of mind !!  They do a wonderful job !!
