I love your new blog. I especially like the fact that you put the videos on this blog so that you could see how to use some of the products. I was in the store the other day and saw the new bind it all covers but wasn't sure how to use them. After watching the video I am sure that I will be coming in to purchase some.

Nancy said...

Wow! Am I really the first to comment? I'd be over the moon if I had a gift certificate. My request would be to have a Copic colour list for the colours used in the card projects for the Whipper Snapper card classes. This would be for those of us who missed the class and would love to mimic the colour schemes. It always seems I miss these popular classes.

Darlo Arndt said...

I was in your store on Saturday. WOW!!!! So many new products and what a great sale. The staff is so friendly and helpful. Keep up the great service!!!!!
