Hope you all have been able to keep cool so far this summer.  It’s been consistently over 90 degrees all summer (hitting over the 100 mark a couple of times)!!  Sorry for the lack of posts this but after a little hiatus I’ll be posting more regularly again soon.

That said, I wanted to update this post as I have added new card kits for sale that will help you get a quick start on adding to your stock of cards for the rest of the year (and maybe give you a head start on making some hand-made cards to use as holiday gifts?).  click here to go to the page that has the .pdf.

Here are a few of the new card choices included in the offering.  Click on the Card Kits for Sale tab just below my blog banner above (or here) to see a few more and for more information on the kits.

New 2018-2019 Catalog is Live! New Color Chart

Sorry for the lack of postings-I even neglected to post that the new catalog is now available (although I bet you all figured that out by now)!  The links to them are on the right hand side of this page.

I just wanted you to know that that I have updated the color chart template with all the new colors and have posted on the instruction sheet tab.  The small format (4-1/4 x 5-1/2) makes it handy to carry in a purse/bag for a quick color reference.  Here is what it looks like when it’s done:
