New Distress Stickles

I just received the brand new Distress Stickle colors in today! What fun colors to play with.

Our Sommerset Studio magazines came in as well. I love those magazines, I devoured them on my way to Iowa! I found a bunch of new ideas to scraplift!

Today was filled with yucky paper work and tying up loose ends, ewwww! But hey someone has to do it! I had to get that all out of the way so I can go to the State Fair!

Ron got a new door put in the retreat today. It has a window, we are no longer windowless in the retreat!

I sent in a HUGE new order today, we'll just keep the new stuff coming in!

We are trying to get some sort of routine started so my kids don't go into shock when school starts. I got them both bathed and read to all by 8:30! I'm really going to have to pick up the pace!

Maybe we'll see you at the fair....

Where in the world have I been!?

I'm still here, just crazy busy with the kids and summer! I've been giving Ron a hand with his painting business since he has been such a prince and working hard for free for the last 5 years!

Things have been going great at the store. Tons of new stuff arriving every week! The latest fav is the new Jeni Bowlin it is just so cool! Ya have to love all the Cosmo Cricket, I can't get enough of it! We've added a ton of new hunty woodsy papers and stickers as well as sports! We've been getting new Halloween and, believe it or not, Christmas too! We have the new Cuttlebug folders in, we're still waiting on the Christmas ones! I've ordered all the new Nestabilites, can hardly wait to get them! If you haven't tried the color core paper you must. Stop in the store to check out our samples, once you try this you are going to love it!

Jessica has added a Thursday card class to her schedule, so if Saturday mornings are bad try for the Thursday. Kits are always available if you can not make the class, we can even mail them to you if you would like!

The newest stamp line at the store is Just Rite Stampers. Oh we just love these stamps with our Nestabilities! If I can get my order to go through we should be getting in Whipper Snapper stamps as well. I've been having issues with the website!

Our burger bash crop was today, and what fun we had! Sorry I had to bug out on you gals early I hope the hamburgers were good! We've got a new restaurant in the neighborhood called Wagonmasters and it was pretty good, you get tons of food and it was cheep! Gotta love that! Another great bonus they serve breakfast and booze if ya need it!

We're still undecided what day the next theme crop will be. We'll have it in September and it will be called The Circus of Summer Is Over! We'll be having this crop in the store so we will have limited seating of 15 people so keep your eyes and ears open for that one. We hope to decide by the end of this week.

Here is my bummer for the week...we had pouring rain and we had a little ceiling issue, we'll get to see how well our insurance coverage is!
