Ribbon Here, Ribbon There, Ribbon Everywhere!

Ok, I really never thought of myself as a ribbon hoarder, but I just found out I am :)

I've been working on this flap book for an upcoming class for the last four days (sneak preview soon) and am at the point where I'm doing the embellishments and need ribbons. 

I started looking at my ribbon, didn't find anything that was just right.  I know I have more ribbon in "various other places!" 

The hunting and gathering begin . . .

I decided to get a HUGE box and put all the ribbon rolls and a shoebox full of "extra pieces" into it.  The box is full and I still have "other spots" to gather from! 

Do you think I could find just what I was looking for??? Of course not! 

P.S. I really should be doing my Christmas cards instead of this, but I can't stop :)

The Best Liquid Glue Around

I must confess that I am not (or should I say was not) a big fan of liquid glue.  However, since I discovered Beacon's 3 in 1 glue I am in love!

It has a super hold, does not dry too quickly so there is some time to move around if needed.  It has a strong hold, dries clear and fast!  I had some Christmas ornaments and other decorations that were in need of repair and this glue did an excellent job. 

On the papercrafting side, the hold is strong, especially for canvas, metal, chipboard, buttons and dries clear.

I only have one bottle left in the store, but have more on order - You have got to try this glue.

Say No to Candles

Please, do not burn candles.  This past week in Binghamton a grandfather, father and 4 year old girl died in a house fire blamed on unattended candles & no smoke detectors.  Such a tragedy.

I WAS a huge candle person, I always had at least one lit and quite often I would light candles in several rooms - rooms that I was not even in. 

That was then, this is now. . .
Some of you may already know this, but last December I forgot to blow out a candle before going to bed and around 5 am my smoke detector went off.  When my husband went downstairs the candle holder was in flames, the counter top was burned and there the whole downstairs was a cloud of black haze which settled into a fine black soot.  After a while of breathing I could feel that that soot was in my throat and in my nose.

I shutter to think how close we were to having our home on fire!  I no longer will light any candles - it just isn't worth it. I still have some anxiety over what happened, especially when I wake at night.

I know some of those I emailed and showed the candle holder to still use candles - please stop.  A fire could start so quickly and trust me you do not want to go there!

December Aready!

I can't believe it's December already!  Starting to stress - the store is decorated but not a home yet.  And this weekend I have to travel again for a family Christmas Party.  As much as I am not looking forward to driving to snowy Buffalo for the second weekend in a row, I will be able to see my family on my Dad's side and especially my Aunt who just had a mild heart attack.

Some changes to the store hours are:
This Saturday, Dec 4 I will be closed

I will be open on the Following Sunday's from Noon - 4 pm
December 12 & 19th

Have a great weekend.
