New Scrapping & Beading Products !

Hello !
Hope everyone had a nice Easter. We were busy all weekend bagging seeds but it was great to have an extra day to work on it. Now it's back to paper & beads for the week. ;)
Today I have some amazing new beads from Swarovski and others ... they are fabulous ! The Swarovski beads are new for this season and were designed by Celine Cousteau, grand daughter of the famous Jacques Cousteau. The sea theme is beautiful. I also have some great glass turtles, glass vials for necklaces, and strands of beads that are incredible. Click on the link below the photos to see the album with all the photos.

Almost Missed this One !!

I almost didn't open the box !!
We have been working every day for the last few weeks getting seeds ready for our feed store. The early spring-like weather has people wanting their garden supplies early. I have been coming in at night to work here. Tonight I had orders to pack for mailing & some (yuck) vacuuming. Parcels arrived today and I thought maybe I would wait until the weekend to open them. But curiosity got the best of me and I had to take a peek. Good thing I did !!! The cutest Easter paper was in the box - talk about arriving at the last minute. Lucky for you (and not so lucky for me, lol) all the Easter paper is on sale this week, so it will be too. And more Lawn Fawn plaid 6x6 pads as well as the rest of the Colorbursts. Here are some photos .
