Hi there !
I am open this Friday (October 21st) from 10am to 4pm. And I have some great new things !
First, let me show you the card kit I have as well as jewelry samples.
I had to try out some of the new Hallowe'en papers and embellishments and I came up with a few cards. You can buy the kit for all three with instructions for $6 OR just pick individual cards and get a bag with the materials for $2 a card. There are 2 Hallowe'en cards and one Fall card.

This card uses the new cut-apart sheets and these fun sequins.
This card will vary in each kit or materials package in the focal image ... each package has a different cut apart.
The sequins and other papers are all the same. 

Here are some of the possible cut aparts that might be in your package. 

This card ... well, I HAD to use those eyeballs !!
And then why not add a spider for extra effect ?

To get the holes, simply poke a pencil or similar object through the paper from the back. 

And this card is more Fall and would be perfect for a fall birthday.
Or just add Happy Fall to the tag if you wish.
It includes the fun Doodlepops pumpkin nad a sprinkle of Doodlebug sequins. 
Some of the fun embellishments in the store

I used these at attach my bat sequins ... micro pop dots.
They are so tiny and work perfectly to add small items. 

Now for the JEWELRY !! This is some exciting stuff.

I have findings that will accept crystals ...
all you do is choose your crystals, drop them in, and bend the prongs. 
Could not be easier !!

Small cup bracelet is $3.49 and the crystals to fit are 50 cents each.
Special this month ... buy it all together for just $8.99 (save $2)
Large cup bracelet is $3.99 and the crystals to fit are 75 cents each.
Special this month ... buy it all together for just $9.99 (save $2.25)

Cuffs - $5.99
Earrings $4 pair
Rings $1 each

Lots of colours to choose from.

Less than 5 minutes - a beautiful sparkly ring !!

The stone in this cuff is actually acrylic and cost just 75 cents !! lol.

I also wanted to make some hoop style earrings. I couldn't find the hoops I wanted so I decided to cut some chain apart.

lovely links - in 3 sizes.
And here's what I made !!
Here is the "recipe" for the earrings.

And ... I have new products from Lawn Fawn, Taylored Expressions, Hero Arts, Stampendous, Ranger, Nuvo, and more.
I'll try to get some mini posts done in the next week so you can see all the great new items.
Hope to see you Friday !!

Hi there !
I have posted 2 Super Saver Albums on Facebook ... they are filled with items from the yard sale ... many at discounts of 75% off. Things are selling very well and people are getting great buys.
It takes me hours to load that number of photos on this page - it just takes too long. I have tried adding links here but I believe non Facebook users can only see the first 5 photos. I am sorry that I can't share the albums here. My best suggestion is to get a Facebook page even if you choose not to make it public. You can use it simply to follow stores or businesses if you wish. Or, drop in to a friend's house and ask them to show you ! have a visit and shop the sales.
Watch for an announcement this week about my Open House ... coming in September ... lots of great new products, samples for inspiration, and kits ! Coming Soon !

Good morning ! It's Friday morning and I said I would make the call about the yard sale this morning. Sunday shows a 90% chance of rain ... and that's too much for paper, packaging, books, and beads. 
So the YARD SALE will be SUNDAY AUGUST 21st ... and I can start watching the weather next week again. lol. 
I made the decision early so those of you who are planning to make the trip have time to change your plans. I appreciate all of you who are hoping to make the trip.
And pssst ... that means I have another week to dig out EVEN MORE STUFF !!!! 
I will be SO GRATEFUL for the rain that I can't even be upset. Let's hope that Sunday is a day of long steady rain and the fires all get put out.
Have a great weekend everyone & thank you !!

Yard Sale Questions ...

I have been pricing & sorting for days ... with lots more to go !! I have used up pages and pages of $1 and $2 stickers if that gives you a hint at what kind of deals there will be !! DEEP DEEP DISCOUNTS !!!
This Sunday from 9am to 2pm. 

Here are some answers to questions that I have been getting ...
1. Weather ... my crystal ball is broken so I have to rely on Environment Canada, lol. For now it shows light showers but the forecast changes every day. If it rains, the sale will be postponed until the next Sunday. I really won't know until late Saturday night or very early Sunday morning. I will post here though if it is postponed.
2. There is no indoor venue. If it rains, the sale will be held outside on thenext Sunday. Or the next sunny Sunday. I don't have room in the store to hold the sale.
3. The sale starts at 9am ... no early birds please ! We actually will have the driveway to the back parking lot blocked because we have to come in very early to set up. So the site will not be opened up until 9am. So no advantage to come early.
Sleep in, have a coffee ... 
4. Sending lists & orders ... sorry but I am straight out trying to get through 3 rooms of boxes - sorting & pricing. I really don't have time to pick out orders and it really isn't fair to those who show up for the sale. So it is an "in person" sale. Whatever is left will eventually be listed on Facebook and could then be purchased for mailing.
5. Cash or debit. No holds.
6. No early previews or items held. Sorry. Again, not fair to those who come out that morning.
7. The prices marked are the prices. There will not be any tax added. So that is the final price.  But, there are also no further discounts. The prices are SLASHED so the price is whatever is tagged.
8. Come prepared to find some great deals !
