April Fool's Day
Greetings from Winter wonderland! Mother Nature did her job for April Fool's day. A full blown snowstorm hit yesterday and continued into today. About 8-10" of new snow blanketed the landscape. Very pretty to look at but not so great to drive in or shovel. Bright sunshine melted most of the snow off the streets & sidewalks by late afternoon. Layers of white still blanket many of the fields and ditches. Warmer weather tomorrow promises to erase the remainder.
Today, at Fond Memories, new stamps from Penny Black arrived. The new spring stamps are amazing! We ordered one of their wonderful display boards with 4 card samples that are incredible. A "must see" when you stop at the store.
New papers from Piggy Tales have arrived. We also have the Piggy Tales "barn doors". Check these out! They're great on scrapbook pages to hide a photo or journaling. Piggy Tales papers are made from recycled paper & printed with vegetable inks. Go Green! Check out the link to their website.
We have some great ZOO papers from Reminisce. Great jungle colors with animal stickers to match. I love the huge giraffe. What fun to scrapbook with these!
We're counting down to Saturday for the Workshop. I started cutting the papers for 2 projects today. We'll spend tomorrow & Thursday finishing the cutting & gathering all the supplies. Our demonstrators get a preview on Thursday when they get a chance to make all the projects as well as learn to teach one of them. It's always fun to hear their reactions.
Until next time......
