Well we finally received a little bit of weather. I kept hearing those pine limbs fly off the pine tree outside my window. From the looks of our yard we will be pulling the little red wagon around collecting limbs. But thankfully we have not lost a tree. I did see an oak tree down at the entrance to our neighborhood. Coming into town this morning it was a quiet ride not much traffic. When I drove through Hardees to pick up my coffee I did not have to wait in line. That is unusual for a Saturday morning. Looking out the front door of the shop it looks as though traffic is beginning to pick up.

What a trip my little Prissy is. Last night during all the heavy winds she had to go outside. OK. I took her out and urged her to hurry up. Well the little stinker decided to tour the yard. Any other time she just barely steps out the back door. Well here she is taking her time and lifting her head to smell the air as I stand in the rain and wind using everything I know to hustle her up. Finally she decided to fast track back to the house. I remember one hurricane we were riding out down home. I think it was Francis. This storm sat out in the Bahama's for several days before coming on in at Jensen Beach. Well here it is the middle of the night Rhett and I are huddled in our safe spot because the radio weather man said it was time to find that spot. Prissy is out in the next room playing with her toy. Tossing it in the air and barking. I finally got her to come into our safe spot. I'm not sure if she is fearless or just little dingy. No doubt she is my little pip. Right now she is curled in her little pink bed by my chair.

To take some of the rainy day blues away I am having a store wide sale. Everything is 20% off today. So be careful driving and come on down and save some money.

Hi again. UPS stopped by today with our supply of Versa Color stamp pads. Some new Color Box, Palette, and Memories stamp pads. There are a couple of new journal stamps from Stampers Anonymous. A new Tim Holtz ATC stamp called "Flutter" and his " sprockets ".
Teresa Collins Die cuts for Halloween and Christmas. You can bind these together to make little books. A couple of new Heidi Swapp clear stamps.

The one hour layout class went great this morning. The weather held off for them. Looks like we may get a few nasties tonight from Fay's back side. I'll probably be asleep when that happens.

Stay safe and see you tomorrow.

We are here for you!

Hello soggy people. Well I guess we have been lucky so far with Fay. We had worse weather last week during an afternoon thunderstorm. There may be more weather on the back side but so far it looks like it might be north of us. I'm looking out the front door of the shop and it looks wintry. People are out shopping at Wally World. Our parking lot is still draining very nicely thanks to Frank. I have brewed some Cinnamon Spice coffee and Hazelnut Cream decaf for those of you who get cabin fever.

Whoops! UPS just got here with "Vintage Moon" papers. Night Owl, Blue Moon, Moonrakers, and borders. There is also an overlay that looks like a window. Hmmm. These would make cute pages for Fall or heritage. Limitless possibilities.
Graphic 45's "Playtimes Past" and "Botanicabella" just arrived. "Playtimes Past" is based on old fashioned children's nursery rhymes, games, and toys. Of course, both sides of the paper is too cute. "Botanicabella" is just like it sounds lots of nature and old fashioned floral prints. They are both gotta have papers. I'll post pictures later today or tomorrow morning as I wait for the rain.

Here is Miss Mallow's sister. Jack & Christie brought this white Miss Mallow the day we were having all that wind and rain. Christie tells me the second year the blossoms are the size of a paper plate. WOW!!!! She grows these plants from seeds off of the plants. She sure does have a green thumb.

Here is this Friday's one hour layout. Call early to save your spot. You can use one 5x7 or several smaller pictures.

Our card classes have been full lately so please call and let me know if you are coming. There is limited seating so I need a head count for chairs and supplies since I cut everything in advance. Remember to bring your basic kit. Scissors, glue, paper cutter, bone folder, and pencil. the class goes faster when you do not have to share tools.

Keep your heads up and stay dry.

Here is the one hour layout for Thursday night at 6:00p.m. This is K&CO Blue Awning paper. Seating is limited so reserve your space early. Lucy will be teaching this class. The One Hour Class will rotate from Friday morning one week and the next week it will be Thursday night.
Emma joined us the day Lucy was here working.

Emma calls this her 'project'.She is talented just like her Mom.

Meet Miss Mallow. Jack and Christie gave me this plant. I call it a Hibiscus on steroids. Christie grows these from seeds and so generously shared one with me. She tells me Miss Mallow also comes in white. Don't you just love it!!!!

Well those altered ladies are here today playing with dimensional pastes. WOW! Next months' challenge is to do some recycling. Go Green! This month they printed pictures on fabric and used them in a project. They were all so wonderful.
Well Miss Priss stayed home today. She was torn between coming with me and the smell of bacon frying. Guess who won? The bacon of course. Here she is in one of her favorite spots. Not just on the bed but on a stack of pillows. Yep she is a princess.
Well better go and get something done around the shop.
