Now is the time for the Revolution!

If you ever wanted to give the Revolution a try, now is the time! They are on sale for $59.99 (regularly $99.99), you can get a better deal by adding a font and get the revolution for $49.99. Buy the new 2x2 Neatfreak for $49.99 (due to arrive Monday) and get a font and a tool for less than $100! There are also 7 new 4x8 alphabets at $39.99 although I recommend that you purchase the 12inch platform to use the full die at once. We are accepting pre-orders for the new product this weekend so you can be the first to get the new alphabets off the truck on Monday!

Donna Downey

Registration will be OPEN tomorrow, SATURDAY, JULY 26, 2008 for Donna's amazing workshops. Don't delay, classes will fill up quickly. You may register by phone or walk-in. Payment is due at time of registration.

We have a WINNER!

The missing ingredient is Tabasco sauce! Camisha came up with the missing ingredient. Stop by the store and get your prize! Here is the recipe in it's entirety:

Strawberries, Mandarin Oranges, mixed salad greens and green or red onions. The almonds are candied by stirring 1/2 cup of sugar over medium heat and adding 1 cup of slivered almonds when the sugar starts to melt. Keep stirring until sugar is melted and almonds are golden.

The salad dressing is:

2 tbl of sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/4 ts. Tabasco sauce
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup Balsamic Vinegar

CHA Recap & CHA Freebie

Well, it's time to head home and although CHA was a blast and I met many great people and caught up with old friends, I'm exhausted and ready for my own bed. I hung out with Jen and Janice from Beach Scrapbooks and had a wonderful Italian dinner last night (Thanks John for the great tip!) Keep your eyes open details for some fun swaps that we will do with Beach Scrapbook's. Oh, and I must mention that the guys at QuicKutz are always a lot of fun (and so are Andrea & Amy!) to hang around with!

I added another slide show t catch you up on some of the things I saw at the show. I saw a lot of acrylic, die cut paper, boy, Halloween & Christmas lines.

Halloween - purple, lots of purple, die cut paper (think spider web paper anyone?), acrylic overlays & glitter!

Christmas - Lot's of die cut paper (beautiful snowflakes and more), glitter, traditional and non, and in between.

Boy collections - Speed Racer and more.

Basic Grey! 5 new collections, not all shipping at once this time! So you can spread the damage a little. We got a very, very early number!!! :) (Thanks AC!) All beautiful and something for everyone.

Birds & Owls & Butterflies - still everywhere but still creative and beautiful.

Maya Rd. - Outdid themselves. Incredible new chipboard and the heaviest acrylic books I've seen yet!

K&Company - Fans you will be very happy as it starts shipping, Halloween, Christmas, Amy Butler (my personal new favorite - wait till you see the new die-cuts), Thanksgiving, new additions to Ancestry ...Oh and Glitter Paper!

Pink Paislee - Love it! Halloween is subtle so you can use it for anything you want and we have a design team member coming to teach!

October Afternoon - 4 new lines and new stamps - another one of my favorites.

Cosmo Cricket - Another fun and "campy" line. Should already be on its way!

I almost forgot to mention, we did order adoption, twins, school (of course), EMT, Nursing, Fire Dept. as well as many others. These were some special requests. I will follow up with more details later.

I have to finish packing and load up the van to head home.

By the way, the Portillo's pics are for Kris, he'll know why.

I have a freebie for a lucky winner from anyone of the posts this past Thur through Monday night - so post away!

See you soon!
