Oh Happy Day!

Feeling a bit under the weather today, had surgery on Monday - drove home Tuesday did too much Wednesday and am paying for it Thursday! But on a good note - got all the orders out yesterday (thanks for your patience everyone), still working on getting the new shipment that arrived while I was away up on the site and had to once again 'dump' on UPS as yet another package has been sitting in the Edmonton depot for two days! It seems I have to put a trace on my packages for them to move out of the Edmonton depot! So now I am sure I will not have anything until Monday or Tuesday depending on their holiday shipping schedule!

Anyhoo..see the big news today?

yup, not to worry - ordered and should be here mid April!

Be sure to head over to t!m's blog here to see all the info on the newest addition to he creative 'genius'ness!

My-O-My!

Thinking that may be an understatement though!  Took a few hours off today from the shop (probably not the best idea I have had lately) and went to spend some time at one of my favorite blogs - Finnabair (aka Anna Dabrowska) - if you haven't been there, be careful...you may find it hard to leave!

I have a lot of her new line in stock already - actually, thought I had it ALL - boy was I wrong!  In stock now I have her Stencils (simple but just have to have designs) and Mechanicals (loads of metal bliss).  Now this is where is gets interesting - call it what you may, but I am sticking to my guns and simply saying that my light bulb must have been a a 40 watt'r the day I was ordering it all.  I brought in the 'Sunrise Sunset' Washi & Fabric Tape, Wood Clips, Wood Buttons and even Say it in Crystals....but did I even notice there was paper?! Yes, you heard me right...PAPER, and I missed it (hanging my head in shame)!  When I spent the first hour at her blog this afternoon (watching the 30+ min video and checking out a butt load of other posts), I quickly headed over to the wholesaler sites to see where I was going to get the papers from cause we all know that is so me!



I am really hoping that these pictures are just a little washed out as compared to what I saw on the video, cause what I saw there was so so what I am after for colors right now! Here's a better image (click on image to make larger):


**UPDATE ON COLOR - SEEN THEM IN PERSON NOW, THEY ARE A MORE VIBRANT ORANGE THAN THE PINK THEY LOOK IN THE PHOTO - EXACTLY WHAT I AM AFTER!**

What else is there you ask...well some pretty cool flowers I will say, and from the video, sounds like they can be manipulated with inks and paints easily.....and they already have a metallic finish!


The stamps are intriguing too - may have to try and contain myself as the mini acrylics are versions of the stencils (but there are other options too, buggers)!

If you want to see the CHA Prima post on it all, check it out here, then ask me how the heck I didn't see the papers?! Here is another post directly from Anna's blog during the CHA Sneak Peaks.

Now, onto the next item I discovered while on her blog....Some interesting new SIZZIX dies! 

Flora Grande by Prima!  



what do you think?  They will no doubt go wonderfully with anything Anna!  
They are being release end of May!

Here are a couple more links that may interest you:

Well, my brain is on overload...so time to go back to that 40 watt bulb!

When it rains...

it pours (loads) of new product! I don't know about you, but I really think that EVERYTHING is coming in at once..."OUCH!" That is what my visa, back and shop is saying right now.  That would be one of the main reasoning for lacking in the post department lately.
