Sale at Art'n Soul
This weekend, April 11 & 12 . . .
Saturday, April 11 -- 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Sunday, April 12 -- 12:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Thank you for understanding that we moved the Recycled Rubber
Sale from the first weekend of this month due to the Easter Holiday on the 5th.
It should be another great opportunity for you because there has
been a large influx of new treasures to be set out this weekend.

Today was a good day . . . the Memory Box order came in and we're expecting the Rosie's Roadshow order any day now. The two new collections from the Ella & Viv Paper Company that I've been waiting for showed up on my front porch this morning. I'll have pics of the Rainbow Splash and Watercolor Paradise papers on the blog tomorrow -- I'm so happy with it and I hope you will be, too!

On the Penny Black blog, Heather Telford shows us another  wonderful card she made using watercolors. The background is one that can be used for graduation, like it shows; it can also work with almost any other occasion or reason that you want to send a card.

From our Facebook page today:
"Dianne made these beautiful cards using the new Dyan Reaveley paints and baby wipes! She made the background paper by rubbing the paint onto cardstock with baby wipes and then added additional color using stencils and round blending tools. We have more of these paints on order - the first order flew off the shelves. Stop by Art 'n Soul to order yours now."

Time to end the day. Thanks so much for stopping by.

the hair might be a problem today!
