We just got in this beautiful sample made by Nancy Auga. Thank you so much for sharing your art with us! These stamps are made by Stampendous.... the neat thing about them is you can "move" the stamp ... either push it down or pull up for a long and skinny pumpkin... this stamp is also available in Snowman form. It's very cool! Thanks Nancy for sharing with us!


Claudia's been playing & creating her magic ... She created this FABULOUS layout! You're going to need to stop by and pick these items up before they're gone! Thanks Claudia for sharing your talent with us!


You've probably seen these "Fancy Pants" Frames in the store (they come in black & white) and weren't sure what to do with them. Well, here's an idea from Lisa Bentley. Each opening has a clear acrylic sheet that you can embellish any way you want. You have to try the sandy look by "MuddPuddles". This makes a great gift for the holidays - and make another for yourself!

And the Winners Are.....

For the entire month of October, we sold raffle tickets to raise money for the Susan G. Koman Breast Cancer Foundation. We want to thank every person who bought a ticket (or lots of tickets!) to support this cause. The prize was a HUGE basket FULL of awesome products - including an exclusive pink Making Memories Slice. Well, we drew the winner yesterday...and the winner is...

Amy Beth O. (pictured below)!!! When we called Amy she was so excited, she got a babysitter and drove all the way down from Pleasanton to claim her prize! She was SO excited when we called her! Thanks SO much Amy for your support and enjoy your basket FULL of goodies!


We also have the winner of the Breast Cancer Crop Layout Contest. Everyone who entered a layout for our silent auction received a raffle ticket. We drew the name a couple weeks ago and the winner was...Coreen L. (pictured below)!! Thank you to everyone who entered layouts for our auction. You all helped make our Breast Cancer Crop and Silent Auction a huge hit!


We had ONE more contest during the Month of October. We had a big jar FULL of flowers. People got to guess how many flowers were in the jar. And the winner is...Natalie S. (updated with photo)! There were 1,888 flowers in the jar and she was only one away from the right number. She'll collect her prize this week. Congrats to Natalie and all the winners of our October contests and raffles!


Again, thank you to each and every person who supported this very special cause. It was very successful and 100% of the proceeds went directly to the Susan G. Koman Foundation.
