My, oh my! All I can say is \the upcoming release of the new Memory Box and PoppyStamps' 115 dies and stencils is incredibly beautiful. We think it's the best collection to-date; you can tell they have put a lot of thought and design into these. They've also created new die sets with several sizes of the same shape. These are a few of the new Memory Box dies . . .

These are a few of the PoppyStamps' new release; I wasn't able to use a link for you to review the images. You'll have to go into the store to see the print-out of both collections and fill out your pink sheet order.

[1128] DIES- Mod Square Background

We couldn't show you this collection before today by request of Memory Box. All of us at the store have been drooling over the collection since the sneak peek to store owners in mid-December. My pink sheet order is just about complete . . . Marj will be at the store tomorrow and Wednesday, and Pam will be at the store on Friday, to show you the full release print-out and help you with any questions about ordering.

Today was kind of a backward day. I had planned to deliver the Graphic 45 Time to Flourish 12x12 papers for the months of April, May and June, as well as 3 of the 12x12 pads that include all of the months, but didn't make it.

I'm hoping the remaining months of the year will be coming to Art 'n Soul before the end of January.

I'm so anxious to see the display of collections for early spring at CHA this weekend, as well as all of the beautiful sample projects that will be brought in.

Authentique sent 6x6 pads of their paper collections for Valentine's Day and St. Patrick's Day. Those will be coming to Art 'n Soul with the other papers. Hopefully tomorrow will bring a 'forward direction' day and I'll have the Graphic 45 and Authentique papers there in the morning.

Judy "Runs with Scissors" Jung always presents such beautiful card designs on the Penny Black blog. In this posting, her inspiration is taken from Therese Calvird, a Guest Designer for Penny Black.

With the end of the old year and the start of the new year, many folks make it a priority to 'clean out' for a fresh new start. Recycled Rubber is this weekend at Art 'n Soul beginning at 10 a.m. on Saturday morning! If you've been cleaning out your stamping supplies and would like to re-sell them at Recycled Rubber this weekend, please have your properly identified items taken to the store by this Wednesday.

That's all for tonight. After the deluge of rains yesterday and last night, the beautiful clear evening sky is quite refreshing now. Mother Nature certainly cleaned out the air with the rains because the evening lights in the valley are quite bright and brilliant.
