Off the couch and ready to go....

Sorry for the delay in undating this blog and schedule this month.  This is my first day off the couch in a while.  Last week on Tuesday I started feeling like I had a sinus infection going coming on and tried to treat it with over the counter medications and such.  Needless to say, that didn't work by Sunday evening I was flat on my back on the couch.  I had no voice, couldn't hear anything and absolutely no energy.  Went to the Doctor Monday morning and got an injection of steriods.  I tried to work Tuesday but that didn't go so well and back on the couch I went until today.  I had to get more meds yesterday and today I am finally starting to feel a little bit of life creep back in. 

Be sure to check out April and May's schedule to the left in the side bar.  We have as lot of exciting things going on.  We have an Advanced Silhouette Class, Copic Class, National Scrapbook Day, A Scrapbook Yard Sale and much more over the next two months.

First things first...... SEW EASY hand tools are back on stock !!
If you have not treied the Sew Easy from We Are Memory Keepers you have to stop in and give it a spin.  I looks great on your scrapbook pages, cards, accent pieces and more.  It makes hand sewing SEW easy !  We will have a full line of new piercing wheels available soon.  I cannot wait to get my hands on the vine stitch. Until then come in and try out some of the other available piercing wheels, the possibilities are endless.

Speaking of We Are Memory Keepers we have our more recent line Tres Elegant avaialble.  This is a beautiful Spring Wedding line.  It would also be just as for Easter.  Don't forget we also have PEEP from WRMK if you want the more traditional bright and fun papers and accents for your pages. I have truly enjoyed working with the WRMK papers and kits each month.  I love how simple it is to coordinate your pages and the 6x6 blocks included in the lines are great for small books or cards.  The ideas just keep coming every time I pick up a piece of their paper.  The PEEP paper line is simply adorable for the kids Egg Hunt photos.  I love the bright colors along with the tiny rabbits and chicks. Stop in and take a peep...I mean peek...LOL.

We just received our latest shipment from Echo Park which has some great Spring and Summer papers to scrap those wonderful pictures of the kids.

I am having so much fun with Echo Parks lastest releases.  You have to plan a trip to stop in and see the in person and let your imaginatuion run wild.
