Weekly Newsletter Volume 62 | September 30, 2020
2020 continues to challenge me as a mom (distance learning to 4 boys) and a small business owner. I appreciate everyone's support and patience as we navigate our new way of life.

There is so much new product arriving daily from the show and just in general. New last week: Doodlebug Pumpkin Spice, Prima Pumpkin and Spice (parts of the collection), Creative expressions gilding polishes, flakes and glitter kisses, Pinkfresh, Avery Elle and more.

Creative Escape Today: Join me on Facebook live Monday-Friday at 10am for Creative Escape Today. You will see interviews with upcoming designers showing off their projects, new products and techniques. Videos will range anywhere from 20 to 60 minutes long. Everyday will be something different! Don't have a facebook? It's ok, our account is public and you can watch videos here.

Kits for classes with Deanna Hutchison are shipping from Canada tomorrow. To make sure you get a kit, please sign up today. We will only be ordering a couple extra of each class. Classes will be via zoom (and the recording will be available afterwards). Take the class virtually or in store with Nina helping while Deanna teaches via zoom.
