Shop the Neighbourhood!

This Saturday lots of local businesses are taking part in something called "Shop the Neighbourhood."
I will be having an Open House here from 10 - 4 this Saturday November 29th with some great deals and tasty refreshments. I hope you will take some time to stop in to say hello and take advantage of the specials which are being offered for that day only. I have so many lovely things in stock, especially for the holidays. Feel free to spread the word and bring a friend! Hope to see you soon!

The best thing to hold onto in life is each other!

I used this stamped sentiment on the three mixed media canvases I gave to my siblings this weekend. We had a wonderful family gathering at my niece's beautiful home in Toronto, and although we don't exchange gifts at Christmas, I had been planning to give them each a canvas with this adorable photo of the three of them taken around 1950 ( a few years before I arrived!) Gotta love those ears those pants and that hair bow ...lol! I had so much fun making them and seeing the looks on the faces of the younger family members when they saw that photo! We had seven decades worth of family present on Saturday and it was so good to be together. On Sunday we visited Steve's Mom and Dad to celebrate his Dad's 97th birthday. I am feeling very blessed (and a wee but tired!) today.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

I haven't begun decorating or played any Christmas music yet but there are plenty of signs that the holidays are just around the corner here in the shop. Here's a peek at some of the stamps and dies in stock (there are lots more.  Some of these designs will not be available for re-order before Christmas so if you see something you like, get it now! Only one more Memory Box order to go in before Christmas and I'm putting it in on Friday, so let me know ASAP if there is something you want.

New products

I just finished unpacking another order. New products include 20 sheet packs of Mirri cardstock (shiny) in assortments of 10 gold/10 silver and 5 each red, green, gold and silver. ONLY $6 per pack. The individual sheets from Bazzil cost $1 per sheet and the silver has been on backorder for a couple of weeks so I thought I'd give this a try. There are some lovely Christmas stamps in the store and a bumper crop of dies. Pretty Christmas paper pads and LOTS of inspiration. Why not bundle up and come and see? It's cold outside but it's toasty warm in the shop and the coffee is always free:)

Breaking out the glitter!

You may not be able to tell from the photos but these are very shiny sparkly cards. The top one has sparkle embossing powder over the entire surface, the middle one has Viva glitter pen accents on the pine cones and the last one has Glitter Ritz EVERYWHERE ... just like me ...lol!
I've been treating myself to some new Stampin' Up stamps recently so I thought I do a class using a couple of them. If anyone would like to order either of these sets or anything in the catalogue, please let me know.
