Thanks to all of you who wrote and called inquiring about how we felt, and thank you to all of you who are praying for our speedy recovery. Emery and I were able to work today, but Felix had to stay home. Hopefully he'll be back up to speed tomorrow. We have LOTS planned! Emery will be cropping during the day Saturday in Metairie. If you wish him to stay until Midnight, please call him as early as possible to let him know. He said he will stay if there are enough requests. The Metairie store number is 504-301-1081. We will be cropping in Mandeville tomorrow until Midnight, as usual, after the Cricut II class. If you want to crop in Mandeville tomorrow, after 1:00 PM, please call to reserve your spot. The number for the Mandeville store is 985-624-3338. We already have a number of people scheduled, so call ASAP to make sure you get in.
We got new Creative Imaginations lines in. Thanksgiving and Fall, and the Christmas collections that I am holding until we do the Layout of the Month. Wait 'til you see these! Gorgeous papers, most of them with diecut edges, and matching 12x12 transparencies, ribbon collections, and rub-ons! If I get to finish the LOTM tomorrow, I will have the Christmas lines out Monday, but the Thanksgiving and Fall lines are already out.
We also received new Karen Foster products. The most adorable pregnancy and newborn stickers, rub-ons, and papers that are new releases. Precious cardstock stickers of a little boy's "shaving" session with Daddy or Grandpa. Veggie paper, new Swim Team collection just released, finally Tennis paper... so much I can't list it all. You just have to come in and see for yourself.
Our Stamping Station order finally arrived, as well. We have brand-new Louisiana paper that I am hoping Felix will be able to put on the online store this weekend. It is gorgeous and I actually sold a bunch of them before I had a chance to put them into inventory fully. People were just buying them out the pack! We also got in new Florida and Alaska paper, and a few others.
Speaking of merchandise not making it to the shelves--we got in our backordered Tim Holtz masks that were flourishes and clocks/gears. Well, all I can say is that there are no more flourish masks left in Mandeville, and I'm not sure what Emery has left in Metairie. They never even made it to the hooks on the wall! Apparently a LOT of people love these, so we've already reordered them. If you haven't had the chance to see how these are used, please log onto Tim Holtz' website, where he has a video showing you how to use them. VERY cool. I'm considering putting together a class on the different ways he demonstrates so you will have actual hands-on with these very versatile tools.
There are lots of other new products we've gotten in over the past couple of days. If you get the chance, stop in and check it all out. I promise, it will be worth your while!
Until next time, happy scrapping and stamping!
