Fun New Stuff

Hi! We were busy unpacking new goodies and putting them out today. We have brand new Jenni Bowlin Banner Alpha Stickers and Butterfly Banner Alpha Stickers. These are so great and a perfect size for cards or layouts. Maya Road sent us Wood Bingo Calendar Numbers, Kraft Tickets and Kraft Envelopes with different edges (great for a journaling pocket). We have the large Janet Baskets in stock...these are so fun to tote around all your stuff in and great for a chic shopping basket. Janet Baskets fold up for easy storage and are just $24.99. We have heard all kinds of uses for these baskets. We restocked several Tim Holtz products and adhesive products you might be looking for. The new summer travel line and beach line have the embellishments restocked and we received some more Artisan Tape from Pink Paislee!

I like to see a man proud of the place in which he lives. I like to see a man live so that his place will be proud of him. ~Abraham Lincoln

This nation will remain the land of the free only so long as it is the home of the brave. ~Elmer Davis

He loves his country best who strives to make it best. ~Robert G. Ingersoll

I love America. I love the world. Brotherhood and sisterhood have no borders. My heart orbits the Earth, love cannot be measured in longitude or latitude. ~Terri Guillemets

Let freedom never perish in your hands. ~Joseph Addison

You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness. You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism. ~Erma Bombeck
