NEW! Unity & My Mind's Eye

It has been quite fun at the store this past will remember that it started out with Jen's cupcakes on Valentine's Day.  I have to admit that numbers were up this past Valentine's.  In fact, they were up quite a bit thanks to Jen.  I managed to eat a total of 4 cupcakes (red velvet with cream cheese frosting, chocolate with pink frosting, chocolate with chocolate frosting and white with lavender frosting).  Then, because the kids from the Montessori did not eat all the mini cupcakes I made, I ate about 8 of those!  Whoa!  Maybe I better type the rest of my post while running on the treadmill!!!  This should be interesting.

Then.....all the new product started rolling in.  Anyone that was in the store Tuesday and Wednesday would admit that it was a little wild on the counter.....there was product everywhere.  Have a look at all the fun CHA product that has arrived....

Unity Rubber Stamps
I think I have admitted that Unity is one of my absolute favourite rubber stamp companies out there.  Their rubber is so deep and beautiful.  The images range from vintage to cute and whimsical.  They are cling mounts so they take up less space in your craft room (or drawer) and the price is always right!

Unity Itty Bitties
Here are some of their Itty Bitties priced nicely at $6.50 or 2 for $

Unity & Christy Tomlinson
I am so excited to tell you Mixed Media fans, that I have a bunch of Unity & Christy Tomlinson cling rubber stamps in.  They make fantastic backgrounds for cards, layouts and well, any project!  Have a look at some of the designs....

My Mind's Eye
Has anyone seen My Mind's Eye's latest creations?  Beautiful and perfect once again.  Their releases are always huge and filled with amazing new designs in various colours with gorgeous buttons, stamps, brads and embellishments to match.  All the 6x6 pads and embellishments are in.  We should see all the 12x12 designer paper in the next couple of weeks.

So what do you think?  Gorgeous!  Come in and have a look for yourself!
