Free Shipping Tuesday!

I have some exciting news...tomorrow will be free shipping for all US and Canadian orders! When one product sells out, I will put another one up shortly thereafter. So keep checking should be an exciting day!

I will also be combining all of the orders, so you can expect one package with all your goodies!

Have a great day!

For my friends in Canada...

You may have noticed that the shipping charges are a little high, rest assured I am working on correcting how the website calculates shipping for Canada.

For now we have a little workaround, I will put the shipping amount in the item description field and will correct your invoice before your credit card is charged. You will still see the higher amount upon checkout however I will email you a corrected invoice for your records.

Sorry for the confusion...but we will make it work!

Thank-you for your patience!

Follow-up on the Library...

Just in case anyone was wondering the library fell somewhere between 1 & 2 (see earlier post). Not really perfect angels and not totally horrible either. I maybe got one dirty look and we did not get kicked out, so I say it counts as a successful trip!

I forgot to take my camera to the library so instead here are a few pics of the boys enjoying their finds.

Stalking my UPS Man...

So I am eagarly awaiting my UPS man today (which of course means he will not show up before 5 pm). Why, you ask? Because he is bringing me a shipment of totally unique paper and embellishments that I cannot wait to get my hands on. I think I am even going to snag a couple of these steals for myself :)

Here is a sneak peak, if you have never heard of this company, you should definitly check them out:

I hope to have the steal from Crate Paper online be sure to check back (you will not be disappointed!).

That's it for now. I am thinking I may try to take my boys to the library today. This will be a new experience for them...I can see it going one of two ways.

1) they have a great time looking at books and picking some out to take home

2) Complete rowdiness...running through the aisles, dirty looks, the whole bit.

Keep your fingers crossed for the first...I will let you know.

Summer fun!

I am trying to come up with some new, fresh vendors..,possibly expanding my daily steal offerings to include other crafts, like knitting, quilting, etc. Please leave me a comment if you know of some really great brands that I should check in to. I am open to any and all suggestions. :)

So summer is finally upon us...Dallas, Texas is a cool 100+ degrees every day this week. So pretty much if you are outside you are at a pool...which is exactly what we did today!

Working out the kinks...

Hi all-

My awesome web developer is working out some of this morning's kinks...but the product is now up! We are currently missing a couple of images so I will post them here until they appear on the site.

As with anything new this website had to have special coding to make it work this weekend we are working out the bugs with timing.

Thank-you for your patience!

Here are the close-up images of the 3 Cosmo Cricket Rub-ons:

Grand Opening Celebration

The website has officially launched!
So here is how it works:

A new steal will appear every night 12:00am and when it sells out, it is gone. Since items are so deeply discounted I may or may not be able to offer them again. I recommend buying it if you like it...cause if you wait it may be gone for good.
As a special grand opening incentive...
Get an additional 10% off the selling price with the coupon code Grand. This coupon is only good through Monday.

Also, if you live close enough to Lantana, TX to pick up your me and I will not charge you shipping. So you all are really getting a bargain! :)

I will leave you a picture that makes me smile...enjoy!
