I have been researching all my outstanding orders and the ones I can find info on today are:

Monday, Amuse Halloween will be delivered and yes, I'll be here smiling awaiting to open the box because I am just as excited as you! Here are a few cards from the designers that are doing sneak peaks.

Tuesday will be Tsukeniko & Spellbinders

Wednesday will be WhipperSnapper. These cards were designed by the amazingly, talented and far to creative Kristen.

Still outstanding...Copic, JustRite Stampers, Penny Black, Outlines, Rosie's Roadshow, Stampscapes. All these COULD come this week but today, I have no way of researching and tracking these companies.

Hope you have a great Monday and look out for a contest and some blog candy later this week!

Looky, Looky...I got an Award!

Looky, looky what my friend Kerry gave me!!!! She had to actually COME into the shop to tell me that she gave it to me back in the beginning of the month. I must have missed it on her blog because I'm too busy looking at all her sweet cards every day. She is one of the creative souls that keep me inspired. So Kerry, this Inspiring Blog Award is going right back to you. :)

We had a great time today with the Unity Playtime. These are the cards I created. It was great seeing what everyone designed and how they used the stamps to make such unique cards. I most definately had a great time with everyone and I'm looking forward to next month's playtime.

Hope that you are able to take time out this weekend and be creative!

Rosie and Amuse!

Yesterday, I got in a bunch of Rosie's Roadshow stamps and today it was all about Amuse.
I got many of the Rosies that everyone has asked for once again and a lot of new ones that haven't been on the shelves of The Tree yet. With Amuse there's a bunch of their Pretty Little Papers, restock of their cardstock and of course, stamps!
I heard through the grapevine that the new Amuse Halloween stamps are heading our way too. Yes, I saw them and are they awesome! 26 awesome stamps, new notecards, ribbon and Twinkle Stickers. To be shipped one day next week but I'll keep you posted!

Have a great weekend!

Man in Brown's Visit

So yesterday while getting ready for my class (which took just about ALL day), the man in brown paid me a visit with boxes, boxes and more boxes. I lost count after 6. Smooch, Glimmer Mist, Bazzill, Dream Street, Scor-Pal, Tsukeniko and Spellbinders. Oh, and a restock of Stickles. I was lucky enough to have a great friend helping me out for 4 hours. She is a doll...thanks, Kerry!

Tomorrow the man in brown will be visiting again with Rosie's Roadshow and Amuse. Fun week with new product and classes every night! Tonight is Stampscapes on Tiles, tomorrow is Pop This with Lisa, Friday is Back to School with Amuse and Jen D, Saturday is our Card Swap and Sunday is Rosie's Roadshow with my friend Kerry. I should be just about dead by Sunday. I'm thinking that chocolate might not be a bad idea at the end of this week. :)

Have a great day!

Michelle runs around the new shop screaming "Bellas are here! Bellas are here! Bellas are here!" Well, not EXACTLY like that but I sure was happy to see all the Bellas, Kettos, Fellas and whoever else those are delivered by the man in Brown this morning!
