Long Weekends

I love them. You can get so much done.

More time with family and more time to be creative. Just one extra 'off' day every week would be nice.

How was your holiday? We took Friday off to celebrate the 4th of July and then it was back to work filling orders! A lot of you took advantage of the sale this weekend.

If you missed it, don't worry. We're working on the CHA Summer Sale. Its time to clear out the old stuff and make room for the new.

If you haven't seen some of the Sneak Peeks from the manufacturers, you can find link to our favorites on the sidebar. We'll be adding more as the weeks go by and definitely after CHA. We're bringing in more new companies to the store after this show. Very excited to expand again.

Some of our favorite sneaks would be from October Afternoon, Pink Paislee and American Crafts. Did you hear about the fabric Thickers? Sounds like another must have!

So many new things coming. We've seen a lot of holiday lines coming up. Even though its only July, the holidays are right around the corner and that means projects, cards and more! I'm sure we'll see some amazing samples at the show and we'll be sure to update you.

We'll be checking in each day to show you everything we've seen and done!

I've added some ideas to my Gallery. And of course, the Design Team is amazing as always. Lots of different projects, layouts etc. A different aspect from each of the girls!

Don't forget the October Afternoon contest. Post a layout using any of their paper lines (or embellishments etc) for a chance to win their NEW line - Hometown. This will be shipping mid-month but to give them time to actually ship it, we'll end this contest on 7/27/08. The prize will include the entire line of papers, embellishments and rubons!!

I'll leave you with some pictures from the 4th:
