Weekly Newsletter Volume 46 | May 11, 2020
Greetings!
I hope everyone had a great weekend. It was so nice to take a day off and spend it with my kiddos. Yes, I have 4 boys between the ages of 6 and 12.

We just received our Photoplay Living the quarantine life shipment. We are filling all the preorders from round 1 today and you will get a notification when you order is ready for pick up or has shipped.

We want to thank everyone for their patience and we learn all the ins and outs of our new webpage. When you place and order, it automatically says "order awaiting pick up" or "order waiting to be shipped" as its status. In reality, I can not pull and process orders instantly. When and order is ready for pick up you will be notified via phone or email.

I am excited that our NSD event is almost sold out! There are 5 spots left. Register for Virtual NSD Crop here

Mystery Boxes: Due to the popular demand of the mystery boxes, they will be back this week! We also adjusted the prices from the feedback we got.

Mystery boxes will go on sale this Friday, May 15 at 12PST. First come, first serve. Online Only.

Product highlights this week: Scrubby is in stock and ready to ship! They smell amazing and get paint off your hands so nicely! Lawn fawn Magic Iris die is on its way to us! Reserve yours now with the link below. Our Black Velvet silver brushes are now on our online store. This morning we got the new Mini Media Mat by WaffleFlower! Its so cute and perfect travel size or for card making.
You can order the entire bundle or single items.

We are excited to announce Nikki Sher's postponed classes are now going digital. If you signed up, you will be receiving a separate email. If you have not signed up, theres still space! See below for details or sign up here.


Thank you for your patience, support and kindness.
I look forward to seeing everyone again once it is safe!

To say I'm crazy about this collection would be an understatement! As many of you know, I don't typically do paper craft...but this sweet collection just called to me! Maggie Holmes for Crate Paper just released the Magical Forest collection by American Crafts, and every piece of ephemera to washi tape is perfection (stamps, chipboard, stickers, etc)!

A message from Layle:

Friends - I’m so very sorry that I won’t be seeing you at the store in a few weeks. The health and safety of everyone involved is extremely important to me. I feel strongly that it’s my responsibility to not fly during this time and potentially expose myself and you to the spread of the Coronavirus. I hope that you, your family, friends & loved ones stay healthy & take care of yourselves. Layle XOXO

I own a teaching studio and store in Harrogate, North Yorkshire, which is fabulously run by my son, Our Ben. I have four, grown up children, and the most gorgeous granddaughter in the world. I have a partner...The babe of Deliciousness. I am also owned by the grumpiest cat ever. My hobbies consist of art journaling and Northern Soul.
