Angela's Happy Stamper
Greetings, friends!
I hate to say it, but I think my brain started my "summer vacation" without me!  I dropped by the shop yesterday and snapped tons of pictures!  Boxes of new product are stacked to the sky, and we've been moving things around to make room.  I basically took pictures to give you a virtual tour of where everything is now.  And then instead of loading them to the computer, I deleted all but 1.  And it's the one that shows the blank space where the Peerless Watercolors are GOING to go.  Seriously?!?!  Thank goodness you are all creative souls with good imaginations :-)  Come on over - we'd be happy to show you all the new goodies and help you find what we've moved.  Sigh......

Scrapbook Convention and
Trunk Show! 

We sold out of our first batch of "early bird/discount tickets" almost as quickly as we got them.  But don't worry.  We just received more - so stop by and snag yours ASAP! 

The convention is at the Dulles Expo Center on Friday & Saturday, June 20 & 21! Many of your favorite vendors will be returning, including Heartfelt Creations, Stamps by Judith, Sparkle & Sprinkle and more!

Tickets to attend the show are $10, and the show begins at 10 AM on Friday, June 20.  However, if you purchase your tickets from us, they are only $7.00, AND they will get you onto the Convention floor at 9:00 AM!!!!  That's an hour head-start!!!

Speaking of HEAD START - get a jump start on the fun by stopping by our shop on Thursday, June 19 for a FREE make-and-take card and Trunk Show from one of our favorites - Verses Rubber Stamps.  Lots of companies have great stamp images, but it's not always easy to find the best words to express what you want to say.  Verses is known for that!  We hope you'll join us Thursday and extend a fun weekend just a little bit more!

New Product!
As I mentioned, I had LOTS of pictures of boxes and product.  You'll have to make due with my descriptions, I guess.

We received the new summer release of dies from Memory Box.  They are super cute - lobsters and crabs and flowers and butterflies - in unique shapes and designs. 

We've added more Avery Elle, and made a new section for the WPlus9, Avery Elle, Mama Elephant, Lawn Fawn and more.  It's where the tools and adhesives used to be.  The adhesives are now back near the classroom to make things easy for you!


We are unpacking the two new collections from Graphic 45 today!  First is Come Away With Me - a luscious vintage travel collection just in time for your summer projects.



And, we also have An Eerie Tale - deep, rich colors in their usual Halloween (but can be used for any time) flair!  You have to snag these - who can resist??? 


Of course, we received other new goodies as well. Stampscapes, Printworks, Paper Cut....A complete wrap-up of new products is listed on our web site.

 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.  (I just added a third post - I'll be posting at least once a week throughout the summer - and I've added a link on the blog so you can receive emails of my posts, if you prefer.  Please check it out). 


Additionally, I've added some new types of workshops to our offerings, in the spirit of building community and allowing you more opportunities for YOU TIME!  We just had our first Guided Meditation on Wednesday, June 4.  It was so great, we've decided to do it on a regular basis (hopefully weekly as classroom space allows).  You can join us for one or all - they don't "build" on one another, so it's not a long term commitment.  Our next Guided Meditation is Tuesday, June 10 from 9 - 10 AM  I also have an evening workshop on Monday, June 9 called the Affirmation Box.  By popular demand, I've added a Saturday session of the Affirmation Box.  It's tomorrow morning from 9 - 11.  Space is still available in both.  I hope to see you and hear from you.
