Hello everyone! I hope everyone is having a great day. The weather is fantastic here today, something we normally don't experience in July! It's really a treat.
Thank you to everyone who took advantage of Mike's Ink Blender sale, and for those who have bought them before and after the sale. Mike has now sold quite a few of these wonderful tools and the reviews are awesome. We're so glad you all enjoy them. I know I could not do without them! We sold a lot more then we expected to, but are getting them out just as quick as we can. Several orders were mailed out this morning!
The sales on the Zutter Innovative products are going good too. Thank you to everyone who has supported this endeavor, we really do appreciate it. The storage items are fantastic, they are so big and can hold so many stamps and dies, it's really great. The Bow-it-All V2.0 is doing well too, ad what a great tool it is to have in your craft room. It really does make awesome bows in no time at all. Since Mike teamed up with Zutter and introduced these products to the store they have been on sale for 10% off. This sale will end July 31st, so if you were thinking of getting some of these great items, try to do so before the sale ends!
I also have to say a HUGE thank you to all of you who left supportive and encouraging comments for Amy Taylor. She's trying so hard to create her first YouTube video, but she's really shy and she's scared to death. I know I could tell her 1000 times over it will be ok, and you all will not be mean or give her a hard time, that you all will continue to encourage her, but when you're nervous, those things seem to go in one ear and out the other. I will probably give her a call today and see how she is coming along.
And, on that same note, I want to say another HUGE thank you for all the sweet comments you all left for me. I had so many people tell me that I deserved the amazing gift Amy made for me, and so many of you thanked me for what I give on my channel. I even had others tell me how I had changed their life too. Those comments mean so much because to be honest, when I do a video I just feel like I'm doing a video. I try to always explain things in my videos and remember the newbies, but I don't look at that as anything special on my part, it just seems that's how you should do videos. So this has all been eye opening for me as well.
It seems I can't thank you all enough, today is Mike's Birthday and I bet there have been over 100 birthday wishes given to him, all of which I have read to him. So, thanks for that too! Mike is my best friend, and supports everything I do, so the fact you all include him means a lot to me!
I've been working away on my latest ReneaBouquets DT project, my Shabby Chic altered Spool, and it's coming along, but it's at a standstill for the moment because Renea is sending me some items for it, so I want to make sure I can include them.
In the mean time, today, I will be recording "The Basics of Heat Embossing 101". I have so much I want to share and show you all, I had to make an outline, otherwise I know I would forget something. You all are going to learn how to do basic heat embossing up to embossing on glass, wood, and metal. Its going to go well beyond the basics!
It's really been fun having the "Flash Contests". Kathy Byrne won #3, so she's excited! I hope you all enjoy these little spontaneous ways to win a little something.
In fact, why don't we have another little contest...kind of buried in this "post". The first person to tell me when the sale ends of the Zutter products will win an ATC card made by me. Just put the winning date in a comment on this post, be the first person to do so and win!
Love ya all!
