Angela's Happy Stamper
Greetings, friends!

In the 8 years (plus) that we've been here, we'd had some fun with contests for you - from the monthly Wall of Fame to various drawings, we've enjoyed seeing your creations and giving away prizes!  But now, we're having a "friendly" competition between the staff, and you get to be the judge!  See below for more information on our Tube-a-palooza!

Holiday Limited Edition Distress Inks!

Holiday Distress Inks 

The Limited Edition Distress Inks for the Holidays should be here tomorrow (or Thursday at the latest).  This collection contains Evergreen Bough (a beautiful green with a hint of blue), Festive Berries (a true Christmas red) and Iced Spruce (an incredible greyish blue).  These are only available as a set, and Ranger is producing a limited run.  Also, please be aware that they are not making reinkers for these pads.  If you have already given us your name for one of these sets, we'll give you a call when they arrive.  If you'd like us to hold one for you, please call the shop or shoot me an email.  We haven't seen a sneak peek of Tim's 12 Tags of Christmas, but I can pretty much guarantee you he'll be using these pads!

Last Call for Shari Carroll - Hero Arts!

Shari Carroll Techniques
Last Call!  Hero Arts Designer Shari Carroll will be here with a series of workshop on November 12 & 13.  Shari has been with Hero Arts for 22 years and is the Lead Hero Blogger and is responsible for the monthly technique articles on  If you don't know her by name, you will surely recognize her stamping style!  The Hero Holiday workshops are completely full, but we do have a handfull - a very few - spots left in the  Technique Treasury workshop offered both Saturday and Sunday.  Reserve your spot today!
Small Business Saturday

Small Business SaturdayWe will be closed Thursday and Friday, November 24 and 25 for Thanksgiving and Black Friday.  We will reopen on Saturday, November 26 to help you celebrate Small Business Saturday.  This is the 2nd year that American Express is supporting your favorite small businesses.  And you are the winner!  Simply visit American Express and register your card.  It's really easy!  Then, bring the registered card to our shop on Saturday, November 26 and use it to buy at least $25 worth of merchandise.  Within a couple of days, you will see a $25 credit on your statement.  It really is that easy to get $25 worth of stuff - completely FREE!  We thought it was too good to be true, but we participated last year, and it really was exactly as they promised.  So, go out on Friday the 25th and shop for your friends and family.  Then stop by here on the 26th and shop for yourself - for FREE! 
Totally Tubular! 
Staff Tube
SRM has come out with tubes in 3 different sizes that make great little gifts for teachers, friends or just about anyone.  The staff has a friendly - well MOSTLY friendly - little competition going.  We've all made tubes and they are on display in the shop.  Stop in between now and Wednesday, November 23 and be inspired by our creations.  Then, cast your vote for your favorite.  Don't torture us to tell you who made which tube - that wouldn't be fair!  Here are just a few of the entries.  The Reindeer tube is the standard size and is filled with reindeer treats.
Staff TubeThe Coffee tube is the mini tube and is filled with chocolate peppermint stirring sticks.

Staff TubeThe Flower tube is the magic wand size and is filled with M and Ms.  Yum!  The rest of the staff's creations are on display, so be sure to stop by and see them.  We have all three tube sizes available in the shop so you can go home and create your own.  It's kind of addictive and a lot of fun!

Holiday Fun!

 Meet the Author!This year, we are moving our traditional Holiday Open House from the first Saturday in December into the new year.  I won't be here that weekend, and I so enjoy getting to celebrate with you.  So, there will be more details on our New Year's Open  House later - stay tuned.  But we just couldn't let the year end without one more opportunity to gather together.  So, plan to join us for a special Trunk Show on Saturday, December 10.  Stamping Seaside Ink will be here with their huge trade show booth, and Kathy will be demoing fabulous techniques and tips all day long!  FREE!  Plus (I'm just bursting with pride), my mom will be here, too!  She has published two children's books, and we will have them available for purchase.  Make her day and have her autograph them for you!  These make great holiday gifts!  Hope to see you all then!
