What’s Up Wednesday!

Good morning ladies,

We have been busy little elves lately, reorganizing, creating samples & classes and brain storming new things for the New Year! I do want to clarify one thing from our newsletter yesterday…. New management doesn’t mean I sold the business, or I am going anywhere. It means I will be here more and able to do more with our new manager Melody Winston. If you do not know Mel, she worked and taught at Stamp Asylum and came on as a teacher with us a couple of years ago. She has a ton of experience and great new ideas.

What’s going on this week…. we have had a ton of stuff come in to restock the whole store. Plus 5 NEW Christmas collections, Simple Stories Vintage Christmas & Merry & Bright, Kaiser Craft Peace & Joy, Prima Santa Baby, Authentique Jingle and Graphic 45 Christmas Magic & Twelve Days of Christmas Collector’s Edition.
