It may have snowed a whole bunch, but we're still open!

It may be a snow day, but we're still open!  Snow days have
always been an opportunity to get things done for me.  Before I
owned the store, it was a bonus day off.  Time to craft.  Time
to wrap presents.  Time to play in the snow with Kendall.  Or
make my most favorite cookies in the whole wide world.  (I'm a
little obsessed with them, sorry...) 

Why not check out these sites today for some major inspiration:

  • Make a holiday card.  We have great ideas at
    the store, but if you have the time to surf the web today, one of my
    absolute favorite sites for card ideas is ISTAMP.  And this one is new for me but I really love her style (lovin' the clear acrylic gift tags!)!

  • Need some ideas for your holiday parties?  Then check out Hostess with the Mostess.  Very cool stuff there!

  • There's some serious holiday gift giving inspiration at Stacy Julian's blog. As a matter of fact, I think I just found a present for Ray & AJ...Tickle Monster Mits  and the companion book.  How cool is that?  Thanks Stacy!  Had never heard of them before....but they're perfect!

  • Karen Russell is a source of photography inspiration for me.  She's the teacher of my online class.  I wish my photos were that great.  She's awesome!

  • Need a scrapbook idea?  A page layout?  A mini book?  What about a handcrafted gift for someone?  I get much inspiration from Two Peas in a Bucket.  

  • I also get much inspiration for tags, cards & more from  Just type in what you're looking for....say holiday tags & see the goodness unfold.

  • Just have some time on your hands?  Then check out The Pioneer Woman
    Great recipes (we've tried a bunch & they're so yummy!)  The
    photography & Photoshop tips are amazing.  And honestly, the love
    story "From High Heels to Tractor Wheels" is a fun read.

  • Why not read our archives?  There are lots of projects to inspire you!

Anyway, whatever your plans, I hope to see you today! 

Don't forget, we have super inexpensive ornaments for your kids to bring them with you.  We'll set them up with some hot
cocoa, maybe put in a holiday movie & make an ornament.  Or,
maybe you need a break & we'll make the ornament with you!
