Angela's Happy Stamper
Greetings, friends!
Chant it with me - "Sick of snow!  Sick of snow!  Sick of snow!"  That should work - now on to our plans that Mother Nature simply cannot interfere with...


Sweet n Sassy Returns  




We are so excited to welcome back the ladies from Sweet n Sassy.  This time, they will be teaching a card class on Friday, February 28 followed by their incredible trunk show on Saturday, March 1.  You can register on our web site for their card workshop (pictured above - there are only 5 spots left, so don't delay).  If you can't join us for the workshop on Friday, do NOT miss the opportunity to see their incredible booth display and shop on Saturday.  They bring hundreds of card samples, so bring your camera.  They will be available to answer questions on how to recreate their cards, and they LOVE to meet new people. 

 In addition, we are really excited to welcome Mollie Cox Bryan back to the shop on Saturday, March 1 from 1-3.  Just in time for St. Patrick's Day, Mollie has released the third in her series of the Cumberland Creek Mysteries (which feature paper-crafting heavily in the plot!)  Mollie will be here with all three of her books, so in case you missed the first two, you can get the complete collection - all signed by the author!!!  Here's the blurb about the newest release:  Spring is in the air, but the ladies of the Cumberland Creek Scrapbook Crop hardly have time to stop and smell the roses. Not when famed Irish dancer Emily McGlashen is found murdered in her studio just after the St. Patrick's Day parade--and one of the Crop's own members is the prime suspect. Vera's dance studio may have suffered when Emily waltzed into town, but the croppers know she's not a vengeful murderer. Lucky for her, co-scrapbooker Annie is a freelance reporter eager to vindicate her friend. What she discovers is a puzzling labyrinth of secrets that only add question marks to Emily's murder. Just when it seems they've run out of clues, an antique scrapbook turns up and points the croppers in the right direction--and brings them face to face with a killer more twisted than a Celtic knot. . .


More chances to learn!

On Saturday, March 8 from 11-2, Sandy Boyd (the representative for Dreamweaver Stencils) will lead a FREE demo on several stencil techniques, including the Molten Magic technique (pictured above) and the double-glitter technique.  No registration is required, so bring your camera and notebook and come on over!


In addition, Sandy will be using some of the Stampendous glitter in her stencil techniques demo, so we will have the entire Stampendous catalog out (including House Mouse and Happy Hoppers) for your browsing pleasure.  Make your special requests, and Stampendous will put us at the front of the line to get the merchandise in the shop.  Fun!!!! 


Faber-Castell Artist!

Next, the fun continues with a visit from Faber-Castell artist Tammie Wilson!  She will be here Thursday, April 3 with this fabulous canvas workshop featuring some of their newest products including Gelatos, Big Brush Markers, Textural Accent Mediums and Chalkboard Paint.  The workshop runs from 10-1.  Then, join us Thursday afternoon between 4 - 7 for a fabulous FREE demo featuring some of the Faber-Castell new products released at Winter CHA!!! 
New Merchandise Continues to Roll In!

The new size of Ranger Distress Inks have arrived, along with new colors of Stickles, Distress Paints, Archival Inks and Dylusions Sprays!  Wow!  We have a new Idea board from Stampendous, new stamps and card samples from Pink Ink and literally hundreds of Memory Box dies - I don't think we've ever had so many dies in the shop at one time!  Please stop in and take a look - and take some home - we have even more boxes to unload and need the space :-)


Save the Date!
We are welcoming a new artist, Linda Bradbury, for a series of workshops May 16 & 17.  She was recommended by one of you, who saw her projects while visiting a shop in North Carolina.  This is one of our favorite ways to find new talent, so keep your suggestions coming.  And stay tuned for more info!
