Hi Everyone,

It's March right?  We should not be getting this much snow.  Due to the weather, we will be closed today.

Good news is that Rhea is already in Maryland and ready for her classes.  See you Friday when we open at 10:00 AM.

Here is a picture from last time.

Hi Everyone,

I updated supply lists for all of Rhea's Classes this weekend.  We have received most of the Copic colors you need and more are coming by Friday.    If you know you need certain colors, please call us and we will hold them for you.  

Before we closed for the ice, Lisa was able to check in some great new products from Mama Elephant, Inky Antics and Websters Pages.

Two Quick Things - Supply List for Rhea & Pre-order your Distress Inks

Hi Everyone,

I updated the supply list for all 4 of Rhea's classes.  Please refer to these lists if you are signed up for one of her classes.   We will NOT be supplying the Copic markers you need for this class.  We will happy to sell you any colors you may need.   We will have open seating for these classes on a first come first served basis.  

Rhea's Supply list for the card classes.
Scissors, Foam pop dots, Double-Sided tape for ribbons, Adhesive Tape Roller, Paper Piercer, Glue Dots, brown ink with dauber, paper trimmer, tweezers. You must bring your (labeled with your name or tape) Copic markers.   Rhea does not share her husband or her markers.    You may also bring colored pencils if you do not have the markers.

  We are looking forward to seeing you this weekend!


Also, If you are a fan of the New Distress colors being released and want to be sure to get your colors right away, we have a list for you.  

Call us and we will add you to the list to automatically pull the ink pads, refills, pens, stains, or paints each month.  

We have had a hard time figuring out how many of each item to order so we want to be sure that you are able to get the colors you want as soon as we receive them.  It seems like the colors are being sent to us around the end of each month and we will call you as soon as we receive them.

Copic Sketch Markers: Lost at Sea?

Copic Sketch Markers: Lost at Sea?

Port of Tacoma
There's a little-known story brewing out here on the West coast. It's got all the makings of a real page-turner. Good guys and villains, high-stakes and bluffing. Even high-seas...now all we need are some real buccaneers! Especially if they can capture our container loads of Copics! And that's the connection here. We can't get our shipments in from Japan!
We are caught in the middle of this labor dipute between the longshoreman's union and the agency in charge of West Coast ports. It has been playing out for months, but it's starting to heat up now. It's beginning to create real problems, especially in the retail industries. Imports are stuck in warehouses and on board shipping vessels. Loaded ships are anchored at port. Exports can't get off the docks. It's a mess!
You can hope along with us for a speedy resolution! Until then, we can't ship Sketch markers until some time in March. We know that's not what you want to hear—and neither do we! Stay tuned and we'll let you know how this situation plays out.
Please note—you can still browse the Sketch markers. You can choose the ones you want and save them into your "My Colors." First,set up an account. After you set up an account, you will see a heart icon with products and when you hover over colors. Click the heart icon to save the item to a "wishlist" for later. When you return you can place your saved products right into the cart for purchase. We hope this won't be long!
