New 2021-2022 Catalog is live!

I know it’s been a while (a LONG while) since I’ve posted. Everything is fine and our family has stayed safe (and well) during this time. We are all now vaccinated and ready for things to get back to “normal” so to speak.

Just in case you didn’t know, the new catalog is now live PLUS you still have 2 months to order from the Spring catalog. I have updated the links to the right.

I’m posting a few cards using still stamp sets & accessories that are currently available (although some of the DSP may have recently retired) as a teaser to more to come…
