Yesterday, Saturday January 27th, was a special day. We hosted our first class since "downsizing" the store last September. We were just shy of one person for it to be a full class. That's a good sign that the interest in classes hasn't waned during the last few months. A lot of that has to do with the creativity that Fran Kawakami brings to her classes. Everyone was smiling at the end of the class and asking "What's next"?

You ask "What's Next? Fran will have a class on Saturday, February 23rd - 1:00 to 3:00pm. It will be a card making class and, and among other elements, it will include using the Graphic 45 Birdsong line of paper and embellishments. I think Fran will also be using some of our newest stencil designs. As I get more information I will post the samples, supplies, and other details on the Blog. Please give me a call if you would like to sign up. Fran's popularity is such that the class is already 1/3 full. There are 6 seats remaining.
After the class, people had the opportunity to do a bit of shopping and choose from the Graphic 45 Birdsong line of paper, stamps, chipboard cutouts, 12x12 and 8x8 pads of paper. From "Prima" we have embellishments in bling, flowers, and pearls. You can also chose from an assorted selection of 12x12 or 81/2x11 solid colors. For the Copic pen users, we have a few sets of 12 of the "people colors" and the 25th anniversary limited edition set of 36. Looking for a good deal, we have the copic pen sets on sale.
A new item we have available for you to pre-order is a book binding tool from We R Memory Keepers.It's called "The Cinch" - it's simple to use, doesn't take up a lot of space, and isn't too bad on the pocket book. It will bind from .325 inches to 1 1/4 inches wide. Priscilla gave we a glimpse of class she will conducting in the near future that employs the use of this tool. The sample is "down right" beautiful. I can't wait to take a picture once it's finished and put it on the Blog..
Another item for you to pre-order is the Ott-Lite Tulip desk lamp. This is truly a beautiful looking lamp as well as being very functional for your crafting projects. You can see what they look like in the photo of Fran's class.
The last thing that I have for you today are the samples of our newest stencil - "The Koi". Those that attended Fran's class liked it so much that they reduced my inventory by 50%. Not bad for only being available for 1 day. The "Koi" is sized to fit on an A6 card. One of the nice things about making our own line of stencils is that should you want it made larger of smaller we can customize it for you. We are open Monday thru Friday, 10:00am - 6:00pm. So come on by and take a look - you can enjoy lunch at "The Shack" if you want. We will also mail the stencils to you should you decide not to make the drive to Kailua. Please give me a call to let me know your going to pay me a visit. I'll show you everything we have.
