Hello again!

Have you been enjoying the summer so far?  Gosh it’s sure been beautiful.  This is one of my best summers personally, playing golf, camping, having Mikayla here crafting a few times, visiting my family…I’m just enjoying my life this summer and it’s been great!  I hope you all can say the same.  If it hasn’t been a good summer for you, I’m sorry to hear that.  I know we all go through rough roads in life, I’m definitely no exception.  Please don’t feel like you are alone in that.  If you need an impartial ear, you know where to find me and I even have coffee 🙂

Lots of new products have been added in store in the last few months.  Many new Christmas dies, new embossing powders, chipboard pieces, pattern paper by Stamperia and Ciao Bella and probably a whole lot more I’m missing.  Come and have a browse and see!

Have you tried the Picket Fence Life Changing Blending Brushes yet?? I was a bit skeptical but a few of you had tried them and loved them so I finally tried them too.  They really are life changing!  So easy to use and work with. Watch for a short video on them soon or better yet, come to the poppy card class in August and try them out yourself!

I hope you have time to come to a class in August.  The info on them is included as always in the newsletter but I’m really loving the poppy cards:

Take time for yourself and come to create and learn some techniques before life speeds up again in the fall.  Once it’s back to school time things whizz by even faster!  I’ve already started planning September’s project, the fall crop Laugh and Craft is sold out and I’m working on bringing more people to offer classes and events to you.  Always something going on in the background, you know me!

Hope to see you soon.

Cards and Coffee,


PS- Mikayla and I had so much fun posing with Gums the whale shark around the store.  Come and see him before he heads home August 2
