As I write this tonight, Sue has had her surgery and all went well. Marj has returned from England, and enjoyed her trip to Paris, the show in Grassington, and a final day of sightseeing in London. Susie is in Montreal visiting Magenta and Helene; I fly out late tomorrow night to hook up with them on Thursday morning.

Reminders . . . Inchies Club meets tomorrow night (Wednesday) at the store from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. And Recycled Rubber is this Saturday beginning at 10:00 a.m.

Our big Magenta order arrived today, and three other smaller deliveries managed to make their way to the store as well. Dianne was very busy; however, she's so darned organized that she was quite calm and she had lots of help from Laurel, too.

Lots of cling-mount stamps . . .

Some of the pink sheets ready for pick-up by the customers;
Dianne was a busy person on the phone this afternoon. It's
so much fun to call customers and tell them their
order is in! It's one of those win-win calls!

More wood-mount stamps . . . I just love
the reindeer stamp and how cool it is
to stamp on the matching chipboard die-cut that
was part of today's delivery -- I just forgot to take pics!

More cling-mount stamps . . .
the wreath stamp is the one we used in
Helene's Christmas class last month.

This is the ultra-thick and smooth cardstock
that is so yummy to use colored pencils on. We
ran out and only 3 packages were sent, so you
had better hurry in to get a pack. The remaining
part of that order will be re-ordered.

This is one of the special cork adhesive-backed die-cut
sheets that Helene said Magenta would make
for us . . . again, hurry in while the supply lasts.
The other chipboard & cork die-cuts that Helene
said they would make for your holiday cards are also in.

These are the small gift card w/envelope sets; 5 total
sets per package. Perfect to accompany a special
gift now and for the holidays.

Special die-cut gift box and lid . . .
you know the best treasures are in the
tiniest boxes and it's even more of a treaasure
when inside a personalized gift box made by you!

The Tim Holtz Fall Distress Ink set is in .  .  . they're on the front table as you walk into the store. The colors are so luscious as you can see from the samples by Susie, Deb K., and Dianne.

Look what those Fall colors from Ranger and Tim Holtz can do . . .

Look at this card top ready for mounting; Susie used the Memory Box dies and embossed the die cuts.

Marj's DREAMY STENCILED DELIGHTS class on Saturday, October 15 (morning or afternoon), features a card using Dreamweaver's new Color Solutions! (the card sample should be back in the store on the class board some time tomorrow afternoon.) These special alcohol inks are wonderful to combine with the glossy pastes, and the technique is a new one that Marj taught in England earlier this month for Dreamweaver.  Also, you'll have a chance to learn about stenciling with metal, and Marj will bring extra samples to inspire you.  And, don't forget.......you'll receive TWO free stencils when you take this class.  Sign up today for the afternoon or evening class!

And here's Marie's class for the My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Christmas Book on Saturday, October 29, from 1:00 to 5:00.

 For either class, be sure to stop in to sign up or call the store at 360.357.6820. The new class schedule will be emailed out to our customer email list tomorrow or Thursday; once it's out, I'll post it here on the blog as well. There are new classes to look for in the schedule . . .

Here's a plug for my dear husband, Tom. He entered his '66 Chevy Nova in a car show recently. There were over 300 cars and 30-40+ muscle cars. Tom's car won "Favorite Muscle Car"! I'm so proud of him!

Enough bragging . . . time to finish packing!
