While we’re waiting…

I was hoping to have some new products updated in the store today but they haven’t arrived just yet. For a little tease… you can look forward to textured paints and mists from Art Anthology and Shimmerz, chipboard from Blue Fern Studios and Dusty Attic, a new kit from Kasia (oh is this one gorgeous – yellows/oranges) and a few more goodies.  We’ll be sure to send out a newsletter this week when the store is fully updated so you will be sure not to miss out.

But since I am here posting away… wanted to say just how lucky I am to work with such great people in the scrapbooking/papercrafting industry.  I spent a lot of time this week on calls with various manufacturer’s and one thing always remains the same – they are just so nice. Is it the shared interest and excitement or are crafty people just nicer?  Seems strange but true. Maybe it’s also just that I deal with companies that I can say this about. Two women in particular I need to point out…

Leslie from Blue Fern Studios.From the moment I began speaking with her, I knew I liked her.  She’s as passionate about scrapbooking as I am and so easy to talk to.  What I learned in our conversation is that she also has another blog, Mended Wings.  Leslie’s son was badly injured in Afganistan about 5 years ago.  From major burns to the loss of 85% of the left side of his brain.  If you want inspiration, be sure to check out her blog.
