an abundance of goodness

The UPS man has been very good to us this week. We have fun new goodies from Tim Holtz, 7 gypsies, Archipelago and Heidi Grace! These candles from Archipelago are absolutely fabulous. We have plenty of wonderful scents for you to choose from. Come find your favorite new scent or ask us about ours, because we are in love with Archipelago.

Tim Holtz has done it again with his Philosophy Tags, Muse Tokens, Word Keys and Trinket Pins. They are super cute, fun to work with and flying out the door already.

What else can we say about 7 gypsies? They keep adding to their already fabulous line and we just can't get enough! Now you can add pre-cut pockets and chipboard pieces to your ATC Spinner! So fun! And for the big 4x6 Spinner we have new color transparencies, Calendar Cards, pockets, and 97% complete pages. The ATC punches are back in stock as well.

Heidi Grace flocked, shimmer, and glitter papers are so fabulous we had to put them into a kit too! Get your limited edition Whimsical Kisses kit while you can!

We also couldn't resist these Journaling and Adage Tickets from Tim Holtz!
