Tuesday Sale - Free Shipping*

I don't know what the weather is like where you are, but we are getting some
tiny little irritating snow. Not the beautiful, get out the skis type of
snow, but the little tiny pellets that sting your face becaue it is so windy
kind of snow. ICK

So to make me feel better about the day, I decided that everyone should be
able to shop without fear of high shipping costs. If I am going to brave
the elements to go to the post office and ship your orders, I would at least
like to feel good about it. I would like to imagine all of you opening your
packages a few days from now, smiling, because you got great product at a
great price and did not pay a lot for shipping.

So have fun, see some new stuff. See the new stuff in clearance. Order
that stuff you've been meaning to get for a while. Take a few quiet moments
imagining the possibilities....

As always, shipping charges will be refunded when the order ships.
Free/half price shipping applies only to orders placed on Tuesday January 26
and only for orders shipped to the U.S. International customers pay a flat
$5.00 shipping for orders over $30 and half price shipping on all orders.

Valentine's Day downloadable attached. Enjoy!

Venice - In the Winter?

Haven't you always wanted to go to Venice? The gondolas, the sights, the Italy of it all? Well, I can't send you all to Venice, but I can show you the 7gypsies Venice paper. Initially distributed at the beginning of December, it is a nice thing to look at while we wait for all the new papers to come out in the next few weeks.

I currently have the papers (individually 12x12 and the paper pack in 6x6) , the patterned paper tape and the plain paper tape, the gaffer tape, and the stamps. If you are interested in any of it, drop me a line at and I can help put some of this fabulous product in your hands.

Have a great Thursday.

Star Light Star Bright -----

Wishes are excellent things, aren't they. Like a little daydream in a tiny little box. You tuck an idea away and hope that when you open it again, it will be transformed into a reality. Pretty good way to spend a minute and not just the time right before you blow out your birthday candles. Just like Jiminy Cricket said in Pinocchio - When you wish upon a star....makes no difference who you are.....

In the spirit of wishes, I am asking you to start a wishlist with me. I would like you to wish along with me for good things. I would like you to post wishes for your families, for your friends, for strangers and for anything else that you feel is worthy. I think that if you share your wishes with others, they are more likely to come true. I know that some of you have friends who need our good wishes and pets that need our good wishes and projects that need our good wishes and so many other things. Won't you share your wishes with the rest of us?

I'll start. I wish for good weather on Sunday along a line from Chicago to Raleigh NC. Our foster dog Sadie has been with us too too long trying to get to her forever family in North Carolina. I wish that the weather is clear and the pilots who volunteer to fly rescue dogs are able to make the trip with her. Next wish?

The best wishes are those that are for others but it's also OK to wish for things for ourselves. If you ever see any scrapbook or papercrafting product that you would like to find, let me know and I'll see what I can do to make your wish come true.

The wishlist for scrapbook stuff is interesting, but I would really really love to hear your wishes. Anyone?

Thanks for reading all the way to the bottom.

Since We're Going to Be Stuck in the Snow - Let's Go Shopping

So we are having lots of snow here in the burbs of Chicago, how about you?
I think that there is too much snow here to do much but stay at home, admire
the scenery and make another pot of hot chocolate.

Because I'm concerned that you will get bored being all snowed in, I have
decided to have a weekend sale. Starting today, Friday, at if you buy any item from the Clearance
group (they are in a section marked Clearance and have Clearance as the
first word of the item title) you can buy as many pieces of Victorian Scrap
as you want for only $1.00. That's a lot of Victorian Scrap on sale. There
are lots of fine designs available, many of them perfect for your
Valentine's Day projects. Flowers, hearts, birds, children not to mention
the holiday pieces that will let you get a jump on your 2010 holiday

As always, fill your cart, check out and I will refund the cost over $1.00
directly to your paypal. Also, remember that I do adjust the shipping
charges back to you if they are lots more than the actual shipping cost. So
shop with confidence that you will get some of the best values on Etsy and
pay shipping charges that reflect actual costs.

I will be adding more Clearance items over the weekend and also more scrap,
so shop early and shop often.

Sale ends Sunday night at midnight.

I think that I have changed the shipping on all scrap pieces to include
Canada, but you will need to convo me about your clearance item.
International customers, I would love to ship to you also. Let me know
which you would like and I will set up a custom listing for you.

For those buried in snow - stay warm and dry. For those who have no snow,
think kindly of we who do.

Have a great weekend and as always, thanks for reading all the way to the
bottom. I leave you with another fine piece of downloadable graphic for your Valentine's
Day use.

Sometimes You Just Gotta Say Goodbye

No, I'm not leaving or quitting or anything. Some of my favorite products are.

Like relatives who you love but who overstay their welcome, it is time for me to clear out some product to make way for new stuff.

I have listed some items for Clearance on the etsy site

Look at the sections on the right, click on clearance and they will all be listed for you. Some of them are one of a kind and when gone, will truly be gone. Some have a few available so if you want more than one (and who wouldn't at these prices) drop me an email and I'll let you know.

While you're there, check out the new Victorian Scrap (some are perfect for spring and Valentine's day) and also some of the Jenni Bowlin that got added recently.

I'm tellin' ya, you have to a least take a peek.

I leave you with the first of many Valentine images. Enjoy!
