I just wanted to share this hilarious story with you.

Jacqueline Briggs is one of our very talented designers, she is always going a hundred miles an hour, is full of energy, is always smiling, and about to explode with wonderful ideas.

Well this afternoon her and a friend went into Anchorage, and scored some amazing deals at Michaels & JoAnn's. She stopped by the store on her way home, (and was full of it, as she always is) to share her beautiful treasures with me.

As she is leaving, we are both talking at once, and she says to me "I hope the bluebird of happiness poops on your head too"!

I laughed and laughed, that was the funniest, most random expression I have ever heard.

Well if that is what makes her so happy, that little bluebird is welcome around the store anytime!

Traveler by MyLittleYellowBicycle

What a perfect line for this summer season! We have just received the Traveler Line by My Little Yellow Bicycle. There are lots of double sided papers for you to create your summer layouts, along with the clear cuts transparencies, as well as the Traveler tablet, die cut papers, and so much more. Come on in, and check it out!

No more self-accessorizing felt (or trying to find an adhesive that holds). Woolies are self-adhesive, layered felt stickers that include all the embellishments, from wire to stitching to ritzy rhinestone accents. No additional work necessary—just pick and stick!

You’ve gotta have some Pops! A pop of color, a burst of pizzazz, Pops are layered cardstock stickers that add an intricate di mensional look to projects. Rhinestone accents adorn these Pops-of-perfect-color that match our newest lines—June Bug and Lemonade collections.

You’ll want to Take Note. That’s why we are launching Take Note—beautiful journaling blocks with coordinating printed trans parencies that can be stacked and used together or separately. Take Note journaling spots are perfectly mini-sized spaces to note the important moments, jot down a few thoughts and simplify journaling into effortless, beautifully brief notes.
