Zonta Spring Card Making Extravaganza

Hope you guys had a great week.  So glad to see you are loving the new paper crafting lines as much as I do.  Want to know another thing that I love?  All of the Zonta Cardmaking Days!  We have been a part of this well organized and FUN event since the beginning and I am thrilled to announce that we are participating once again!

It happens on Saturday April 18th from 10-4,  Please see poster above for full details.  Please note that tickets are only available on-line and at Rubies this year.  The Christmas event sold out BEFORE the early bird date so I would suggest registering right away if you are interested.  Trust me when I say, you will NOT be disappointed.  It is the perfect day to learn a little, support a great cause and have a LOT of fun!  Hope to see you there!

I love. Yes...again!

Adorable layout by Canada's own - Vicki Boutin

I love with Simple Stories "I AM" collection.  I know.  I know.   Yes, again!   Guys.  This collection has everything I love including birds (I don't know what it is about birds but I adore them), feathers (goes with the bird obsession), hearts, BICYCLES (!) and gold foil!  I also love the name of the collection.  It prompts you to journal.  It inspires you to create.  Have a look.  See if this collection speaks to you...

Snap Albums and Ideas

For those of you who are not familiar with the Simple Stories Snap concept, I have included  a photo here to show you.  Their idea is that scrapbooking CAN be a "snap".  Use their slotted pages, easy preprinted snap cards and more; scrapbooking can be fun, easy and still very creative!  I think this collection has me wanting to do a very special album for myself.  A lot of times we are so busy documenting events and we forget to document our thoughts and our feelings while life is happening all around us.  This collection prompts you to slow down and reflect.  I can feel the wheels turning! Ha.

Simple Goodness!

Have you guys been worried about me?  Think I've been stuck in a snow drift for a week?  Last week was one of those weeks where my head was down, busy working on wedding invitation samples.  Not the most exciting to report on here on the blog since I cannot share photos until after the wedding date.  I have been having fun creating new designs for these future brides (one of my favourite things to do!).  It is definitely wedding season!

Last night was a busy night at The Hinnegan Household.  I decided to take some work home with me.  And by work, I mean about 100 pounds of wonderful, NEW product!  As mentioned on facebook last night (really? you are not on fb yet?), my assistant and I had A LOT of fun unpacking these boxes.  Just look at the smile on Julia's face.  It's funny because just minutes before we dove into the order, I heard Julia say "I'm bored.  There's nothing to do!".  After I heard that, I thought "I KNOW what she can do!  Help me.'s never too early for your first job!".  

I knew this order would bring a few "ooo's" and "aahhs" from this little girl.  The bulk of the order were the new collections from Simple Stories:  Enchanted, Say Cheese II and I am.  Have a look at some of the items we got in.  This may have to be a two parter as there A LOT of new items!!  Here are the two Disney themed lines that I just love.  It is Disney without all of the licensed characters, etc.

Simple Stories - Enchanted
6x6 Paper Pad with reduced sized patterns
perfect for princess birthday cards!

12x12 Basic Paper Pack - The perfect coordinating papers

Perfect embellishments for any layout or card.

Enchanted Wood Veneers - I am in love with these.

Simple Stories - Say Cheese II
This line originally came out a couple of years ago and because it was such a hit, they added to their offering with new designs and products.  Anyone who is planning  a trip to Disney or who have gone to Disney needs this whole line.  The colours will match every single one (of the thousands) of picture you took there!!

So what do you think?  All of these items are in store now!  These collections have me dreaming (and wishing) for a warm California or Florida vacation.  Don't think that is in the cards for this year (we are being practical with money going to home improvements....why are we so practical!?) but a girl can always dream.....I am always California dreamin'.

I'll post my favourite collection tomorrow....."I am".

11th Birthday SALE - Feb.11-14

What is that saying...?  Time flies when you are having fun.  Ain't that the truth.

It has been 11 INCREDIBLE years of Paper Pickle goodness.  I have met the most amazing, interesting and TALENTED people over the past 11 years.  I love that you want to share your love of the hobby with little ol' me.  Think back 11 years to when we first many of you have become friends (and I think that is the sweetest part of sharing this shop with you ♥).  I always knew I wanted to own my own store but some rewards such as this (our friendship!) cannot be estimated, quantified or projected on the spreadsheets I keep.  To quote Elton John's song Mona Lisa's and Mad Hatters "and I thank the Lord for the people I have found".  Now did I find you or did YOU find me?  Who cares!  We've got each other....

Ahhh....♥.  Now aren't I in the lovey dovey mood.  I guess that's what you get when you combine our BIRTHDAY sale AND Valentine's Day!  Let's keep this love fest going all week long!  Oh but don't come in 'til WEDNESDAY, k?  (Store Hours - Wed-Fri 10am-5pm, Sat 10am-3pm).  Ha.

Oh.  I also hear that Homebaked Kitchen (aka little sis) wants to get in on the FUN!  All of Jen's adorable aprons, towels, coasters, etc will be 25% off as well!  All baking is regular price but don't wait til Saturday to pick up a special Valentine treat!  Just have a look at these pieces of art.  I sure hope I get ANY one dozen of these for Valentine's Day!
