CHA starts tomorrow!!!

hi again,
All you stamp lovers better start saving your pennies especially if you love christmas stamps as I have just ordered many of the cutest christmas and winter stamps!!! Tons!!!! Sizzix has just brought out the cutest little embossing machine. If you are always admiring the cuttlebug but find it a little costly for just embossing then The Texture Boutique is for you! It's very affordable and adorable too!! Then for you die hard die cutters, the BIG SHOT PRO is the way to go. It cuts full 12x12 sheets. At the moment the majority of the dies are for bags and boxes but they will be devemoping many more for CHA winter. I took a class today where I made a waterfall clear album. I loved working with the acrylic. I hadfun with the copics, prima bling, and many other things, so I suggest you look at clear acrylic through new eyes, I know that I will.
I saw Tim Holtz and we talked about his new distress stickles. 17 new colors!!!!!!
I took a class with Hero Arts and I think that the white opaque Staz-on has just become my new best friend.
There is so much more to tell you, I will be bringing as many samples home as possible and you know how I love to show those off!!!!
I will try to post more news tomorrow.

Hi from hot and humid Florida.

Well I just spent the day in a pre show and I got to see a lot of fun stuff.
My Mind's eye has given me samples, what great lines these are. I saw Reminisce and some of their lines are so cool. The safari line has textured animal papers that are really neat. There are 2 halloween lines and 2 Christmas lines and then their autumn bliss line has the cutest little animals.
Fancy Pants rocks as usual. American crafts has a huge great line, but I haven't seen it up close yet.
Making Memories has a beautiful Christmas Line and their glitter embellishments are sooooo nice. They also re-did the slice. It's now pink(for breast cancer), 50% faster and their new design cards have 2400-3500 images per card and you can do mirror and shadow images. We hope to demo this at our demo bar very soon.
Sei has 3 great new lines which will be available soon. Crafter's workshop has some real awesome templates for doodling and making your own backgrounds. These work well with glimmer mist, chalks, uniballs, inks, etc.......
Well there is still more work to do and much more to see so I will continue to keep you posted on our progress.

July 12, 2009

Well we finally finished emptying the boxes we received Thursday and Friday. We have restocked our flowers and Doodlebug. We have good stock of our Copics....lots of great colors. The Stamp-a-vie stamps are disappearing quickly, we are waiting for our order of the newest Bella stamps. I have re-ordered all the distress ink colors, if anyone is missing any. Also today we put out the ****NEW***** 3 Bugs in a Rug!!!!! They are soooo cute. The christmas ones are so adorable, even though we haven't truly had a summer, I still don't mind looking at these christmas papers. The "to the rescue" line is a great little boy line with fire trucks, helicopters, cars etc...
By the way I hope that you have all been seeing some of the sneek peeks. Some of them are really wonderful. I especially like My Mind's Eye and Bo-Bunny, American crafts looks like it's going to be great too. I saw Best Creations but that is usually better up close.I will try and keep you up to date as I have more information. Remeber send your wish lists early to be sure I know what you want from CHA!!

Basic grey has arrived!!!!! it's out and ready for purchasing. CHA pre-orders are showing up in my mailbox everyday. What to buy, what to buy......oooooohhhh the dilemmas. I just ordered
3 bugs in a rug, I think it's adorable. You can see it on their site www.3bugsinarug.com . Now I am working on my Stamping Bella order. Those stamps are soooo cute. I can't wait to have the new ones in the store and then I need my fix of KETTO's (especially Tatiana, my personal favorite) Next I think I will order the My Mind's Eye, also looking pretty nice. At this rate I won't even have to go to CHA, like that's ever going to happen!!!!
Off to do family stuff and then back to work. By the way I will be accepting any and all wish list's for new companies to carry.
