This weekend marks the middle of November .. where has the time gone ?? Wow.
This week I have lots of new dies, stamps, papers, and embellishments to share with you as well as beads, charms, and jewelry kits. And I have restocked some very popular items as well. But let's start with this week's kits ...
Christmas Card Kit :
This week's kit is all about snowflakes ... the kit has wooden flakes, glittered flakes, kraft flakes, flocked flakes (say that 3 times fast !!) , and blinged up flakes . You get all the materials you need to make all three cards for just $5.
Christmas Wish List Organizer : This little kit will go together in less than 30 minutes and save you lots of time this holiday season. The little book has 12 wishlist pages - all you do is add the name of your family and friends to each of the pages and keep a current list of their wishes and your purchases !
Now ... on to what's new !! I have new dies & stamps from Penny Black, new dies & stamps from Taylored Expressions, new dies from Couture Creations, lots of new embellishments from Tim Holtz Idea-ology, twine, stickers, paper from Doodlebug & Authentique and more.

And now ... paper. I have been selling out of paper so I went back to the vault ... lol. I ordered some of last years releases in order to have a bit more in stock. And it has been selling quickly - sometimes you have picked up every last sheet of a design . Some papers are just classics !!
And did you know ? Some paper manufacturers include a strip along the bottom of their papers that shows what is on the back. This makes it much easier to scan the paper racks !!
Now ... let's talk BEADS.
I have a bunch of new beading supplies .. chain, hemp, smaller beads (2, 3, and 4mm) as well as pearls in those sizes, coloured chain and findings ... and more to come !
Still to be unpacked ... new Swarovski items, new beads, 10/0 seed beads, wire, and that's just a few items.
I also have some of the Christmas Swarovski kits ready ... tree earrings & pendants as well as a few snowmen earring kits. I hope to get more done tomorrow and over the weekend.
And don't forget the snowflakes !! It's time to start making them . They look beautiful hanging in the window, on the tree, or on parcels. They are super simple to make and would be a fun family activity. And did I mention that they are very inexpensive ? The forms come in 3 sizes and all you need are some beads . I have bulk bags of beads but I also have lots of bags done up in $1 bags ... and you cna make many of them with just a few of the $1 bags. You can bend or glue the ends but I prefer using rubber earring backs at the end of each arm. A bag of 100 is just $2.99 and you won't regret buying them - so much easier than messing around with glue !!
And charms ... I have filled the bins with Christmas charms . They are great for earrings, on chains or bracelets, hanging off ornaments, on cards ... so many uses !! (The number listed by each charm is the order # and the other number is the price.)
And LAST but not LEAST ... a ballot. Each week you will get one instore survey ballot with your purchase. Fill it out and bring it in by 5pm on November 28th. I'll be drawing for some wonderful prizes at the end of the month ! More details soon ...
So I think that's it for now. Hope to see you this Friday !!
