Karin and I were gone for two days to visit relatives who are hospitalized in Little Rock, and when we returned last night, we discovered that leaving Stacey and Ali in charge can be a good thing. They have the store filled with new stuff! Here's what's new...

Imaginisce: A new company that you'll fall in love with. We chose the Exotic East collection, which has jewel-toned papers, and jewels to match. There are also metal filligrees, metal plates to slide ribbons through, and just a wonderful assortment of coordinating items, including brads, ribbons, and charms.

All My Memories: The new Uptown Chic albums are updated in a rich red, charcoal, and bisque. We have both sizes, 12x12 and 8x8.

Doodlebug: One of the cutest things we saw at the Chicago show this summer was this company's new Paper Frills. We have all 12 colors of these 12x12 borders die-cut in intricate shapes, including rows of flowers. (Also have a new shipment of the matching alphabet sets.)

Creative Imaginations: What a great idea! The new Bare Elements line is made up of plain white items perfect for home decor, and easy to personalize with just about anything you can think of. We have six styles of Christmas ornaments, actual wood blocks, gift card holders, door hangers, triptyches (a three-sided free-standing item perfect for a picture display), 12x12 frames, two styles of purses (square and clutch), and wood words which can be used as letters and as the negative shape left after the letters are removed (love, family, baby, and travel).

Daisy D's: We have four cute projects ready for the making, including a chipboard purse, a mini-album, and an envelope set.

We've also added the entire alphabet in 7" tall wood letters by Plaid, and have a new stock of chalk inks, storage items, pens, circle cutters, punches, and more.

Can't get blogger to accept photos this morning. I'll try again this afternoon!
