There's a Silent Auction going on this weekend too, beginning on Friday and ending on Sunday where **100%** of the money collected goes straight to St Jude! I've received several items for auction and if you were planning on dropping something off but forgot, I've extended the deadline for drop-offs to 11am on Friday Morning (October 24th)
Here's a small peek at some of the items that will be going up for auction:

We received in a lot of new stuff from K & Company- two Lotus by Amy Butler lines with paper pads, two Christmas lines with paper pads, 8x8 Baby pack, albums, Life's Journey papers and embellishments and reorders on some of the very popular paper pads we had before from them.

Basic Grey Wassail arrived this week and is absolutely breath-taking.. beautiful double sided papers and matching embellishments. It has to be their best Holiday line yet! There are three sets of clear stamps, a card kit, chipboard, 6x6 pads and more! And so many of the papers can be used all year long for all sorts of cards and pages.

New in this week- Crate Paper!

This paper is YUMMY! It has a subtle linen texture, is double sided and has a great look to it. It's not as heavy as previous Crate Paper releases- this reminds me more of Chatterbox or KI Memories as far as paper weight goes. They have some great glittered Die Cut embellishments and borders to go with the three lines as well as paper packs that are an amazing deal! You get a TON of stuff for only $17.99!

The lines go across- the first two shelves are Lemon Grass, the second 2 are Mia and the bottom 2 are Prudence.

Our VIDEO is OUT! :)

Lights, Shadows and More on Oct. 10th

Kimm will be teaching you how to use *3* different coloring mediums to paint lights, shadows and other special effects on your stamped images. She'll help you learn how to decide which products fit your style and allow you try something new to push yourself into other creative directions.

If you have a preferred multimedia paintbrush, please bring it with you to class (size 2 and size 4 filberts and a round brush are ideal) Water reservoir brushes are also recommended.

Kimm will be giving a lot of personalized assistance in this class- it will almost be like having a private tutor! So- if you want to expand your repertoire of watercolor skills, this is a class you don't want to miss! Friday- October 10th at 6:30pm!

New SEI papers

SEI's new holiday papers are very pretty and have foil accents! The double sided cardstock weight papers are perfect for papercrafted projects, cards and of course, layouts!
Oasis and Black Orchid are two other lines from SEI. Oasis has exotic prints reminiscent of Casablanca and ornate Moroccan mosaics. Black Orchid makes me think of New York for some reason- perhaps because they're always so fashion forward there and this looks like something straight off the fashion show runway. :) The bold prints and bright colors will help chase away any preemptive winter blues you might be having.

Danielle's Advent Calendar- this Saturday!

As promised, here is a little teaser for Danielle's Advent Calendar class this Saturday at 1pm. If you did her calendar last time, you should still take a look at this- she's really outdone herself! We didn't think it could be any better, but this one just takes the cake!

Give us a call at 901-377-0730 and reserve your spot in this great class! You'll be kicking yourself when you need a great gift for someone around the holidays or the kids want to make this year extra special with something different.
