a sneak...

as promised here is my chipboard heart binder! i only had a chance to decorate the outside today between getting things ready for the show and also watching noah and getting some orders out. it is a beauty! i love love love it - for this one, i am going to fill it with lined papers and use it as a journal of things that i love! this does come with 8 chipboard binder pages for more decorating! the cover is also decorated with our swirls chipboard (covers in kick butt ranger dabber paint) and also a sheer flower (also with dabber paint!)




and for other peeks, check out these new things here:

and here is another project that i am going to be teaching in november. this is one of my personal favorites b/c david did the journaling on this one for noah on some cool tags we turned into journaling cards. the sweetest between noah and david is almost too much for me to take. i am not a big crier and i almost did when i saw the journaling.

and one last note, they say you can't please everyone all the time, i have a story for you. there was a customer we called as a courtesy call and asked them to tell us within 24 hours if they wanted to order them a product b/c we knew we would be out soon. we don't do this often with the number of customers we have but when there is a specific need, we do try to address it. they said they needed to think about it. we don't hear from them for a couple of days and now they want it. 24 hours does not mean a couple of days. since we didn't hear from them, we sold everything out til november. and they come back to say "why didn't you tell me that you were going to be out?".

when it comes to this, all i can say is we tried. in the past i would take things like this personally but i can't or it would drive me crazy! i am so past that. we all need to roll with the punches b/c that is the only way you can get by in life happy. things change. life changes. things get sold out. if you show that you can get beyond something, it will make you stronger.

have a great thursday!

My hubby is teasing that you put something addicting into your chipboard. GOT to have it all!
