it is coming!

ok, with God's grace, next week will be the arrival of our big container (one of them) all chock full of MR goodies! i am always in awe when i see a 40' container (think those big 18 wheelers you see on the road) full of our stuff. i can remember back to the very first time we had to receive a 20 ft container. it was me and 2 friends and we unloaded all 400 boxes by hand in the texas summer sun. that took us 2 hours to unload. some of those boxes weighed about 50 lbs.


gone are those days and i am thankful (well i am not thankful that i am probably not in shape to lift 50 lbs at this point) that the w/h takes care of it and i just have to check everything off and get those things shipping out the door. we are primed up to get all the CHA orders out as fast as we can but i will be honest, we are not a big enough operation to ship all the orders out at one time. i wish we were.

but since i couldn't wait in the meantime i wanted to make something. something simple so i created this LO

i used the following new MR stuff:
  1. our new sheer flourishes (For the wings)
  2. our new motifs rubons
  3. our new foundations journal stamp

people have often asked what you can do with our sheers - well here is one option! just add some like butter rubons and you have the perfect wings! and i love our clear foundations journaling stamps that fit onto our foundations chipboard. or you can use them here like i did by stamping them onto a transparency (i used staz-on and yes it is ok to use staz-on with our stamps just clean them off as soon as you are done with using them! ) and it makes the perfect overlay.

(side note can i just say MAN ALIVE, i love white staz-on! i finally dug out my pad and used it with some of our stamps on transparencies and it is AWESOME!) - i will post a LO where i used this technique soon!

until then, i need to get read for the garage sale this saturday from 9 am - 2 pm at the old magic scraps location. lots of MR stuff to clear out (whatever i can fit into my minivan). this is stuff that will be 20-50% off our retail prices. there are some items where the tins are damaged but the chipboards inside are perfect good so if you are in town, stop by and say hello!
