Summer is here

Well, we've made it to the longest day of the year and we are now on the down trend with the days already becoming shorter. Where does the time go? I hope that everyone had a nice weekend and Father's Day. It's hard, I know, for those of us without our own dad's, but there are always "spiritual dads" in our lives and in-laws, uncles, and friends that can mean as much to us and fill the gap. Scott & I spent the afternoon with my in-laws just resting on their porch and drinking iced tea - very relaxing on such a bright and sunny afternoon.

It made me anxious for us to get our new Basic Grey line in. Lemonade has shipped and will be here later this week. We are also in the process of ordering the summer travel paper and some additional chipboard books and other items. We have received some of the new Quickutz release dies as well.

We have loaded the photos of our squash book to our calendar and also the beach tin. A photo is also shown here. It's crazy at the shop this week with classes filling quickly and next week's sign-ups continuing to come in as well. There is still space in the upcoming classes shown below. If you are interested, just give us a call or stop into register.

Hope to see you soon!

New Products Have Arrived

Well, the new stuff continues to pour in and we are having a ball making samples and finding new things to do with it. Last week we were set up as a vendor for the Central Penn Crop and it was a huge success for us. Thanks to everyone who supported us at the event either during the crop, or who just stopped in to shop.

This past week we received our Maya Road products, Basic Grey Wisteria and Lime Rickey lines. We've made a prayer book using one of the Maya Road books and the Archaic Basic Grey line of paper, our All Occasion Card class has a card made from Lime Rickey and the Faith Scrapbooking class has a sample of the Wisteria line (shown above). The layout was a perfect fit for the Beatitudes we've been studying. One of the layouts for this month's class was for Matthew 5:6 - Blessed are those that hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled. I used these photos of my mom when she joined her church on Easter Sunday out near Fort Indiantown Gap several years ago.

Keep stopping in to see all the new samples and products. We'd love to see you this week! Have a blessed and restful week.
