Who doesn't like flowers? Their use is appropriate for any time of year and for any occasion. That makes them a perfect fit for our store. Art and I spent most of the day on Wednesday assembling two new "gondolas" to showcase the "All Natural Accents" we now have for your use. The flowers are a paper product that are individually handmade, available in a variety of colors, and multiple flower types. I think they are a perfect accent to any card or scrapbook page. Stop by the store and we will show you the possibilities. It's fun to use. I know I'll be busy making samples.

More paper has arrived to add to our extensive selection of "Basic Grey". "Konnichiwa" (meaning hello or good afternoon in Japanese) is a beautiful two sided paper. It has soft colors and a sense of serenity and beauty. There are twelve designs to choose from (24 if you consider that it's two sided). I think it would be interesting to try it in combination with the new "Mulberry Paper" we have in the store. The coarse texture of the mulberry paper would provide a wonderful contrast to the "Basic Grey".
Fran's class last night was a joy to watch. As many of you know, Fran's classes have become very popular in the store. To accommodate the number of crafters wanting to sign up for this class, Fran expanded the class to eight people. Everyone had so much fun. Laughter and friends brings a store to life.

The last crafting event for the month is Priscilla's "Barbecue Recipe Exchange" on Saturday, June 30th. The best part for me will be the "pot luck" meal after the class. The store is going to have an aroma that will be really "ono".

Memory Box Dies - we have word that they have been shipped and should be here any day now. Those of you that have pre-ordered the dies will be receiving a call from me. We sold a lot of their dies in the past two weeks. Some of the designs are close to being sold out. If you have yet to use the Memory Box Dies - no problem - come into the store for a quick demo. You will discover a new tool that you will want to add to your basic tool kit. It only takes 5 seconds to cut out a beautiful embellishment. If you didn't pre-order, Priscilla ordered enough dies so that you will have a good selection to choose from. They won't last long though, so come in for the best selection.
Priscilla continues her Sunday "Craft Snacks and Tidbits" session. This happens every Sunday (1:00 - 4:00pm). The event is increasing in popularity and few "kits" are left by the end of the day. It only takes a few minutes to complete the project for the day. We will look forward to seeing you. So circle your Sundays - July 1st. July 8th, July 15th, July 22nd, and July 29th ... 1:00 to 4:00pm. It's free - just bring a smile.
As many of you know, Fran has two classes each month. Both classes for July - her "mystery class" on July 11th and the "Year in Cards" class on July 25th are sold out. We are now taking reservations for August. Fran's classes are always on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of the month (6:30 - 8:30pm). If you are interested in having a great time and developing your crafting skills, please give me a call.
The last thing that I have for you is a die that is FREE for your use on the Accucut machine. We do ask that you buy the paper here. The die is a Lantern Box that would be perfect for your next special occasion. I barely got the die out of the box before Priscilla was making a sample with silver card stock and our new flowers from "All Natural Accents". I think she did a great job. It would be fun to use a small battery powered candle in the lantern.
