what a fun couple to work with ... bridget and todd are definitely on our favorites list. Kayd really rocked this one, love the outdoorsy feel and fun die-cut shape. I do feel for Bridget's parents though, as she is one of three sisters all getting married this summer.
We love our new die cut machine and can't get enough of making these cones with it! The back of our store has a Creation Station and will feature a new craft each month - this month is Valentine Cones. I made some to hang on my roommates door handles with some goodies in them and the girls in the photo made four to hang in their windows. So fun!

these soaps and lotions are by local company daub and bauble (and we do like supporting local). and the beauty is they smell as good as they look. with scents like mission fig and thyme, arriba cacao and spice, tarocco orange and clove, and sorrento lemon and ginger how can you choose just one!

this one's a bit of a departure from the usual paper/stationery items, but it's adorable none the less. we just got a crop of dresses in for the little ones, made from fun fabrics from amy butler and other fun coordinating designs. if only i had a little girl ...
hey, are you guys familiar with this product line? i recently fell in love with it, the 3-pak of purse-size notebooks has a list of ideas for using it which include: inspired ramblings, half-ass calculations, escape routes, illegible autographs, shady transactions, gambling debts, loose promises. i love it. the calendar has the most excellent list on the back of "real big days", a list of unconventional holidays such as the best day to can, pickle or make sauerkraut, national visit the zoo day, bowling ball invented, eskimo pie patented, debut of polaroid camera, first laundromat opens.
