Bits of News


I just wanted to post a little news. First of all, Basic Grey shipped today so we should have the new lines early next week. I can't wait for Marrakech.

We are starting a new collection of donated scrapbook supplies for our local schools. I contacted one of the local art teachers and she would love some scrapbook supplies for the kids to use in craft projects. We will be taking donations at the store of your unwanted scrapbook supplies. We will be taking the supplies to the local schools as they start to build up. I know that I have a lot more stuff I need to clean out and can't think of a better place to donate to.
