Angela's Happy Stamper
Greetings, friends!
Wow!  We've been keeping the UPS guy super busy!  The boxes just keep rolling in.  Today, it was a paper-palooza as we unpacked 10 new collections from KaiserCraft and Echo Park (pictures included below).  We've added new classes, too!  So, get out of the heat and get over here!!!....just not on Friday, July 4 - because we will be closed for Independence Day.  We will be open our regular hours on Saturday and Sunday, July 5 & 6.  See you soon!

Paper - Palooza!
A picture is worth a thousand words - so here are a bunch of pictures (worth about a million words - although math isn't necessarily my best talent)...

We brought in a bunch of 12x12 collection packs from Echo Park.  These are fantastic summer themes, include a sticker sheet, and are a fantastic price!  This one is Walking on Sunshine.

Summer Bliss (by Echo Park)

Simple Life (by Echo Park)

Boy Oh Boy (by Echo Park)

Ahoy There (by Echo Park)

Baby Mine - for boys and girls (by Echo Park)

The Pitter Patter collection from KaiserCraft is designed with babies in mind with shades of blue and pink. However, the designs feature flowers, dots, and honeycombs that allow the collection to be used for many occasions in addition to babies.

The Bow and Arrow collection from KaiserCraft has a Native American/Southwest feel in both colors and patterns. For both collections, we have 6"x 6" paper packs, 12"x 12" individual sheets and coordinating stamps.
More New Product!

We restocked the original 33 colors of waxed linen thread and added another 3 delicious colors to the collection: magenta, green and lemon yellow! These threads are great for bookbinding as well as button and knotted embellishments.  



Need some beach reading? Gelli plates are hugely popular right now, and we have the new idea book (pictured above) to inspire you! We also have a HUGE selection of Zentangle books to get your creative doodling juices flowing (the picture below is just a sampling - there's even more)!

New Classes!

Speaking of Gelli Prints, we have a new class featuring the 6x6 printing plate on Saturday, August 2 at 10:30 AM. 

 Plan to stay all day, because at 2 PM on Saturday, August 2, you can play with the new Dina Wakely paints, stamps and brushes in Marilynn's fabulous Mini Lesson Workshop!  (pictured above).

And, are you ready for a little Christmas in July?  Well, ready or it comes!  Deb is back with another incredible class.  Get a head start on your Christmas cards with the evening workshop on Tuesday, July 22 at 6 PM or the daytime class on Wednesday, July 23 at 1 PM.
Visit our New Blog!

I hope by now you've had a chance to check out my new blog. I've always thought of the store as a Third Place - your place of community beyond your home and work.  But once I really started thinking about community, I've been nearly bombarded by studies and statistics of how important community is to all facets of life - to strong neighborhoods and even to our own health!  The research is startling!


Our community here at the store has always been strong.  We've done lots of community outreach projects together - making cards for the troops, providing craft supplies to the Herndon Senior Center, collecting food and supplies for the homeless and so much more!  And we have lots of workshops and FREE events to help you meet and get to know your fellow stampers. 


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've now had our first two Guided Meditations, and our next one is scheduled for Tuesday morning, July 1 at 9 AM.  You will absolutely start your day refreshed and reinvigorated!   


I also have an evening workshop coming up to explore the power and rituals of prayer and anointing.  If you've wanted to know more about that (or perhaps you've never thought about it before), join us for a laid-back evening of discussion.  That is taking place Monday night, June 30 at 7 PM.


And, as promised, I have now secured a location for our fieldtrip to the Labyrinth!  Yay!  Join me Saturday morning, July 19, at 9 AM for a Labyrinth Walking Meditation.  We'll meet at the store for some history and discussion and then carpool to Vienna to use the labyrinth.    


 Let me know if you have any questions about any of these events, or about the research I'm sharing on the blog.  It's been a fascinating and eye-opening project.  I hope to see you and hear from you.
