We thank those of you who came into Art 'n Soul yesterday to take advantage of our Black Friday sales!

Today . . . please help us survive the holiday weekend shopping madness. We want to be a part of the madness and, lucky for you, Art 'n Soul might serve as a respite from the hustle, bustle, crowding and pushing at the larger retail stores. We love the artsy and musical environment Art 'n Soul offers shoppers. Please come on over and take advantage. IF you mention you saw this on the blog tomorrow, you can receive a 20% discount on all papers and ribbons at Art 'n Soul.

Saturday, November 30, brings us SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAYBuyers are being asked to promote and shop local and at small businesses, like Art 'n Soul. If you're an American Express card holder, even better!

November 30 is Small Business Saturday, sponsored by American Express. It’s a day set aside to show your support for small business. If you have an American Express card, beginning November 24, you can register online at this American Express site: Once you register, if you come in to any participating small business (which Art ’n Soul is) on the 30th, and spend at least $10 in a single transaction, you will get a one time credit on your account of $10. You don’t have to have an American Express card to support Art ’n Soul on this day though, we would love to see you here!

"A Message of Joy

by Jean Okimoto for Memory Box
Hi - hope you're having - and enjoying a long weekend!  Jean Okimoto here, with our favorite Labrador die from Poppystamps, delivering Christmas cheer on a backdrop of the new Bold Joy stamp.  I love how the Pool Dots Signature Pattern gives the illusion of snow without saying it out loud.
