Angela's Happy Stamper
Greetings, friends!

How is it possible that Thanksgiving is already upon us?  Where has this year gone?  If it really is true that time flies when you're having fun, then I must be having an absolute BLAST!  Actually, I usually am having a pretty good time and feel really grateful to have a job I enjoy with staff, customers and friends I am lucky to know.  Hope you each find a moment to count your blessings this Thanksgiving and know that I count you among mine!
Thanksgiving Hours & Small Business Saturday

Small Business SaturdayJust a reminder that we 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, but you MUST pre-register your card before Saturday!  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! 
Christmas Tree TubeSRM 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.  If you haven't stopped in yet to vote, you are running out of time.  Cast your vote between now and Wednesday, November 23!
Staff TubeDon't torture us to tell you who made which tube - that wouldn't be fair!  We will reveal the winner, as well as who made each one of the tubes on Saturday, November 26.  The Christmas Tree tube above makes a great centerpiece!  The bird tube to the left contains birdseed - what a great idea! 

 Magic Wand TubeThis is the "Magic Wand" and is filled with glitter suspended in liquid soap.  How creative is that?  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!

Hero Arts 2012 Party and MORE!

Hero Arts 2012Each year, Hero Arts releases their new catalog and dozens upon dozens of new stamps at the end of the year.  We buy them all sight unseen, and we are just as excited as you are to open the boxes and see the surprises inside.  The 2012 catalog and new stamps will be in the shop on Saturday, December 10.  If you'd like us to reserve a 2012 catalog for you, please give us a call or shoot me an email.  Once again, they will be $10 and FULL of card samples and ideas! 


In addition to the new Hero Arts release, we have a lot more planned for you on the 10th!  Our friends from 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!

Holiday Odds n Ends

 Just a reminder that we do have Gift Cards (my favorite gift)!  And, we make it really easy for your friends and family to purchase them for you!  They can stop by the shop.  They can call us, and we can mail it out to them.  They can send us a Paypal payment, and we can actually email them the Gift Certificate, which they can print out right from their own computer.  Seriously - shopping has never been this easy, and it's exactly what you wanted, right? 


We're also looking for your feedback.  We want to know if you want to hear Christmas music in the shop after Thanksgiving.  Traditionally, we've always played Christmas music (AFTER Thanksgiving), but we wondered if you get so bombarded with holiday music everywhere else you go that you might want a break.  So, here's your chance to be heard!  Simply visit our Facebook page and cast your vote.
