ahhh rubons...

when did the obsession begin... i can remember my very first set. we grew up in a thrifty family and in my stocking one year, i got a half sheet of SMURFS rubons from santa (which i knew all along was my mom). my sister got the other half a sheet. that was over like 22 years ago i think! i think in my pile of stuff at my parents house, i still have that sheet of rubons (along with my shirt tales cartoon ones)! ah, a hoarder even at a young age...

so what am i going to do when the almost 1000 lbs of rubons arrives in the warehouse. LOL. but my parents along with teaching us to be thrifty taught us the goodness of sharing so be ready for a small win-it-before- you-can-buy-it RAK tomorrow (might only be a sheet of rubons and matching ribbons but hopefully, all you MR fans will love it nonetheless).

we have been working our BUTTS off in the last 2 weeks. getting images on our site, getting hundreds of orders shipped, getting ready for the next trade show and other details we can't reveal yet! and we want to express our gratitude for those retailers / customers that try to be patient with us. thank you. it means so much to us. we are also trying to streamline processes so we can spend more time with our babies.

sometimes deb and i think "wow, our company has outgrown us!" but that is a better place to be than "wow, we have outgrown our company". and with every road block we hit, we come up with a solution to make things better. that is the cool thing about owning your own company, there isn't the red tape to get approval to get things done from management. WE ARE THE MANAGEMENT. if we want to change it up, all we have to do is agree (deb and i) and we are done! and if we say no to something, we are fluid enough to have an answer once we agree on it. how totally cool is that?

so thank you for all of you who have been patient with us! we think our products are worth the wait and we hope you do too! i am hoping one of these days to actually get to scrap again and use my new rubons (which seems sort of ironic since we own our own SBing company).

check back tomorrow for a RAK of some of our new rubons!

I guess it will be a little while before we see these rubons in Australia. I'm chuckling about the hoarding - I used to do the same. lol
