Naturally Obsessed . . .

It's what I'm creating right now. . .


It's what I'm buying right now. . .

I love the texture in a piece of coral, the detail in a turtle's shell and the artistry of a bird's nest.  It has been a slight obsession with me lately and if you have seen any of our show booth's in the past several months you know what I mean.  Mix all of this with some old chemistry bottles and I'm in heaven!

Happy Tuesday!

I can't believe. . .

it's July already - our summer is flying by.  

Even with the fast pace, you will want to carve out some time to play with this month's kits - they are awesome (and I am in LOVE with this month's exclusives). . .

The Papercrafting Kit has a bright summer theme and includes this AWESOME pink flamingo patterned paper that Lisa designed and adorable clear stamp frames designed by Betsy to fit our monthly flatbacks . . .






I love the extras in this month's Artisan Add On including the gold foil bow-tie paper and adorable pinwheels. . .


This month's Historian Add On has several tiny alphabets as well bright reds and gold foil accents for quick pocket page card making. . .



And the Antiquarian Add On will not disappoint with it's red accents and air-mail theme. . .




The Crafted Kit for July is AWESOME!!  Betsy did an amazing job designing these pin cushion canning jars - great storage at it's best!  We added some classic JBS products and a vintage hook and eye card to start your collection.  And you get everything you need to make 2 jars - one to keep and one to give (and all for under $30)!



We have stocked the Flea Market with some wonderful finds this month including. . .

Sweet flower-edged diner china . . .


Well worn child's shoes. . . 


A bluebird platter. . .


An 1870's mini Hymnal . . .


A retro Polaroid camera and case (with flash!). . . and so much more!


And in lieu of a Dime Store Deal this month we are running a special sale in our Past Kit section!  Further reductions have been taken with more than 10 new kits reduced.  Get them while you can- this is always a popular sale!

Everything will hit shelves tonight at midnight central time!

Happy July!  Let the fireworks begin!

A 3 hour tour . . .


I did feel a bit like Gilligan these past few weeks - a 3 hour tour that was actually 3 weeks!  We started in NY at the Country Living Fair, then off to my sister's wedding in MD, then to a short hiatus at Deep Creek Lake in western MD, finally finishing at the Scrapbook Expo in Chantilly, VA.  I need to download my phone photos to my PC (I'm afraid that is where most of my documenting comes from these days), but here are a few photos for now.

Jared married my sister so he officially has another job description.  Love all of my boys. . .


One of the sticky sweet flower girls - can I tell you how much fun I had with them?  Got to watch "Frozen" with this little one. . .


White water rafting at Deep Creek on a man-made course.  Felt a bit like cheating but it was loads of fun anyway. . .


Now I'm off to pulling weeds, putting up our 4th of July bunting, and all of the other things business and otherwise on my two page list.  Have a great week!
