It seems days like these recalls the phrase "dog days of summer." However, that generally waits for the hot days and nights of August. Not this year! Nope! The "dog days of summer" are kickin' it up big in July . . . all month long. A nice refreshing ice cold drink will help cool you off, or an air-conditioned environment like you would find at Art 'n Soul! Dianne is at the store all day long! And the store will be open this evening because of Sue's card class, complete with air-conditioning.

Graphic 45's newest release for Halloween is called Rare Oddities. As soon after I return from Italy on the 10th, it will be at Art 'n Soul for you. From their blog, this is a project sheet for a Halloween scrapbook page lay-out.

Tim Holtz has reported that the response to the Crazy Bird stamp set was so overwhelming that he had to continue with Crazy Talk and Crazy Thoughts. In addition, a friend showed how she had dressed the birds up, so Tim asked her to come up with fashion and other accessory stamps, Crazy Things.

These are from Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz Collection, and will be released to storefront and online store owners next week. Personally, I can't wait!

From the Magenta blog, Bianca makes an ATC-size card using the new Fuchsia Stamp from Magenta and the multi-lingual Thank You stamp.

Speaking of ATC's, Elaine Woodhouse is teaching art at a local Seattle elementary school as well as a Summer Art Camp. She would like to increase her collection of ATC's to share with all of these kids so they can see the artistic potential and assorted varieties there are. If you have some ATC's that you no longer need for your private use, please feel free to drop them off at Art 'n Soul for me (Debbie) and I'll make sure they get to Elaine. BTW, if you're not familiar with Elaine, she used to teach wonderful altered art classes at Art 'n Soul before she started teaching in the public schools.

That's all I have for now . . . the day is getting late and everyone is anxious for dinner to be served at 8 p.m.
