Thank You Ella!!!

One of our long time favorite people was in the store this morning and curious about the new self-adhesive glitter paper. So we started to play...and play and play! This stuff is amazing! It will go through every die cut machine and it even works great with punches! We used the purple glitter paper with the Fiskars floral border punch and Fantastic!! So, not only does it cut great but I am NOT covered in glitter, it's not on my hands and it's definitely not sticking to my die!!
Thanks Ella for the play date!

I will post the assembled page by Wednesday and leave it up in the store. So get registered and get ready to have some fun every month!!

Yummy New Product from Silhouette!

It is fair to say that it was easier to make the shirts with the heat transfer paper than to get the boys to sit for the picture!
This was so easy and so fun. I just used my silhouette to create my text and image, cut it out and ironed it on.
This new heat transfer paper comes in lots of great colors and flat or flocked. I chose the flocked, of course and the shirts are adorable (even on the first try). The possibilities are endless, you can use the heat transfer on any fabric project, including quilts, home decor (monogram pillows) personalized hats, baby gifts, shirts for kids, my head is spinning with fun project ideas !

Stay tuned and watch for my next project that Jen and I are working on with the rhinestone kit!! Can everyone say BLING!!

My Pictures are Saved!!!

So, I have been talking to my husband/tech guy about my paralyzing fear of losing my pics that are store on the computer. I started researching an external hard drive, on-line back up companies and I have found the solution. The Picture Keeper is a USB drive that automatically backs up my pictures every time I plug it in. It also allows me to take the drive to CVS or Meijer to print pics for some instant gratification.

The Picture Keeper is PC and Mac compatible and comes in three sizes:
4,000 photos $34.99
8,000 photos for $$69.99
16,000 photos for $99.99
