Another great year!

Well folks, that wraps up 2014 for the shop! Thanks so much for continuing to support my business. It's been a great year and I really love working from home so it looks like I'll be hanging around for another year (fingers crossed!)  I'll be doing inventory for the next few days so the shop is closed until Monday January 5th at noon. Wishing you all a very Happy New Year! See you in 2015!

Year end clearance sale!

I hope everyone enjoyed the holidays and spent some quality times with loved ones and friends. We were very grateful for the clear weather for our long drive to and from Kitchener Cambridge and Toronto over the past 2 days and had a wonderful time visiting our family.
Now ... are you ready for some bargain shopping?  The big table is filled with items marked down as much as 50%. You can save 20% on ALL DIES! Yes even Memory Box!!!!   Christmas stamps and embellishments will be marked down 25% too. Open from 1 - 5 pm today and the sale continues Monday and Tuesday from 10 - 4.

Holiday hours and another big SALE!

Christmas is just around the corner and the shop will be closed as of 6 pm today until Saturday December 27th when the big year- end inventory clearance sale begins. We will be returning from visiting family in Toronto on Boxing Day so I won't open the shop until 1 pm on the Saturday ... just in case we get hit with a storm like last year and have to stay another night! The sale will be on for three days, Saturday the 27th and Monday and  Tuesday the 29th and 30th and there will be lots of deals because I have to start the dreaded inventory count on New Year's Eve, so the more I sell the less I have to count ...lol!

Here are the holiday hours:

CLOSED     Saturday December 20 - Friday December 26 inclusive.

OPEN          Saturday December 27:   1 - 4
OPEN          Monday  December 29:  10 - 4
OPEN          Tuesday  December 30:  10 - 4

CLOSED     Wednesday Dec 31 - Sunday Jan 4 inclusive.

Regular hours ( Mon- Fri noon till 6 ) resume Monday January 5

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Ready or not...

I am never "ready" for Christmas in the traditional sense of cleaning, baking shopping etc. but as I don't have a lot of people to shop for and we are travelling to be with family for Christmas, I am feeling relatively relaxed about it this year (I say relatively because I still have cards to make...lol!)
This is the last full week to shop before Christmas. Next week I'll be open Monday and Tuesday by appointment only for last minute gift card purchases or order pick ups etc. I'll be placing my final order for the year first thing tomorrow morning so let me know today if you want to add anything!

Last class of 2014 and one I forgot to upload ...

I forgot to upload the third card from last class, so here it is (the top one), along with the last three for the year. The last one is my attempt at a white on white card. I couldn't resist adding a little antique linen distress ink to the embossed snowflake background along with some stardust glitter pen highlights, so I guess technically it's not white on white, but you get the idea. I've had the snowflake die for close to two years and I'm pretty sure this is the first card I've made with it! Next Wednesday morning is the last card class for 2014. It's been a great first year in the house and I'm so thankful to all the fun folks who come to class. They really brighten my days with laughter and keep me searching for new ideas and techniques to share.
Looking forward to even more creative fun in 2015!

blue and sparkly!

Be prepared to go home from class with a little(?) extra sparkle this week. I have two ready and I've a feeling I may as well keep with the glitter theme for the third card as it's everywhere already ...lol!

Raining Cats & Dogs 6-Card Set & Box

This is a great video tutorial including measurements. I have just about all the products in stock and of course you could use papers you already have (dig into that stash you've been hoarding ...lol.) The little mixed media boxes are perfect for gift giving and I have them in Kraft, black and cream colours.
