New goodies!

The Viva Pearl Pens are back . . . see the bowl of color on the front counter. They're going to fly right out the door so be sure to stop in now! I know I picked up 3 more this afternoon. If you don't see a color you like, write up a pink sheet because I'm certain we'll be ordering again soon.

Gift Bag

What’s nicer than offering a nice gift ?

To surprise even more the person to whom you’re giving, think about decorating your bag.
A few scraps of leftovers from your favorite papers of the Emotions collection, 3 small flowers made from a narrow band of paper rolled around itself with a heart of mini pearls, a die cut self-adhesive cork and a Happy Birthday label… and there you go, you’re ready to offer a personalized gift!

We'll be sending in our Magenta order, so if you forgot to write up a pink sheet order, please do it now by stopping into the store, calling us at 360.357.6820, or emailing us at

I am so anxious to get back to the techniques that we learned from Helene in last week's class. I did ask Helene to make the plastic images of their bird from their stencil set for the shadow image on alcohol ink technique. If you were not at one of the classes, Magenta is going to make a full 12x12 chipboard sheet of reindeer cut-outs and one of the birds on a holly branch cut-outs ($6.25 each), as well as an 8.5x11 cork sheet of cardinal birds ($7.15 each). If you want some of these, please order them now; I will be making out the paper side of the Magenta order on Monday.

Here are samples of the chipboard cut-outs I'm talking about . . . you can also use the die-cut space of the chipboard for stencils of those same images.

Zentangling Books by Suzanne McNeill, CZT, also came in . . .

Packets of magnet backs are available . . .

Dianne has been making card samples to showcase the Candi; you can buy them in colors and white that can be colored with your Copic markers. I love how they work with the My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Christmas papers. You can also purchase the special-sized foam stickers to use behind the Candi to adhere them onto your project(s).

Tomorrow is Recycled Rubber . . . lots of great new stuff. There is a very special person who volunteers her time at Art 'n Soul to help us process the RR items which is a huge task. All of us at Art 'n Soul thank Laurel Martin for her unwavering dedication and the hours of time she puts in to make RR happen each month. We couldn't do it without you, Laurel!
