Angela's Happy Stamper
Greetings, friends!
Wow!  Where has the month gone?  It seems like it was just snowing and now here it is - Memorial Day!  We will be open our regular hours on Saturday and Sunday, but CLOSED on Monday.  And then we reopen with a bang - we have lots of great new products and classes coming up, so grab your calendar and let's get started!

New Classes
Our two newest instructors offered amazing new classes earlier this month, and so they are back again with two new classes!

Deb will bring her attention to detail to a new class called Not Just Florals.  This class will be offered in both the day and evening on June 12, and it features more WPlus9 as well as two new companies to the store:  Mama Elephant and Avery Elle.  Don't miss this workshop!

Next up are Masculine Cards (pictured above).  In this workshop, Gayle will inspire you to use stamps that you may already have in your stash (rather than a more "traditional" male image like golf clubs or a remote control :-)  And, this class, in both day and evening, is just in time for Father's day!

And, not to be outdone, Laura (not a new instructor) is back with a NEW class.  This time, she's showing you the in's and out's of working with Distress Stains.  Stunning!  We're sneaking this class in next Friday, May 30, but you can also register for the encore offering on Sunday, June 22.

These are just a handful of the classes we have coming up.  Please visit our web site to see the complete listing.  You will always find something to inspire you here :-)
New Product!

In addition to new classes, we've also received tons of new product recently!  First up, we have dozens of new images from one of our favorite companies - Pink Ink.  You'll love to color them, and you'll be inspired by the 8 new card samples in the shop (two are pictured above).

  We have NEW Impression Obsession stamps for summer, and also TWO brand new companies - Avery Elle (pictured above) and Mama Elephant!  These companies are hot, hot, hot!     

  We also received the new acrylic paints from Dina Wakley.
Here is a video of Dina herself explaining how awesome these paints are!

Another product that people are really "buzzing" about are the Peerless Watercolors.  They are super vibrant colors and are incredibly easy to blend.  Laura is going to be using them in a class in the near future, so they will be arriving at the store soon!  Let us know which ones you want, and we'll order them for you.  If you want to know more, here is a fabulous video introduction.  Send me an email or call the shop with your request and we'll get it added to the order right away.

 As some of you may know, I've been working on my Master's Degree in Divinity.  I've grown to appreciate our store even more as I've delved into my studies.  It really is a little piece of heaven here on earth.  Don't you agree?  It's been hard, over the years, to watch other independent stores (and even entire chains) go out of business, and so I've been looking at why that may be.  Turns out, it's not just symptomatic of the crafting industry, but it's a lack of community building in society in general.  I feel like "the community" is what makes our store special and adds value.  In other words, it's the very reason for our existence.  So, I've started a blog to capture some of my thoughts on this, and I would welcome and value your input.   


Additionally, I'll be offering some sessions this summer that are sort of "outside the box" from what we usually do here.  These offerings will focus on guided meditation and fostering a greater sense of community and self!  Visit my NEW BLOG to find out more about these offerings and to provide feedback.   I'm also trying to get the best possible times and days for these sessions, so send me an email with your interests and availability.
