Can you believe summer is coming to an end? September. Hello. Friday. I can’t even believe it!

Not too long ago my daughter pointed out to me that Joshua Tree National Park is about 1-plus hours away from where my dad lives. All this time. I had no idea. Never really looked at where it was and so it never occurred to me to go there.



Well, guess what we’re gonna do next time we go down to visit! I’ve had this place on the brain and so this week’s freebie is in that ‘desert’ genre…it’s a Succulent. Of course, it can also work as a flower. Make them fluffed or flat, include many layers or use just one.

fun. :)


Now for something a little out-of-the-ordinary for one of the new stamp sets in October. Say boo…I mean, hello, to Hocus Pocus.

Because this particular stamp set is a very specifically-themed stamp, it won’t be stocked all year. Therefore, we are doing a preorder on Hocus Pocus through Monday, Labor Day. Once that day is over, the preorder will be closed.

We want to make sure that everyone who wants one, get’s one. :)

If you want to ‘stake’ your claim on this ‘spooktacular’ little set so you can add it to your creative stash, get your order in this week. We will be ordering extra stamps that will be available to purchase on October 1, but there will only be a set amount ordered and we won’t be reordering them again until late summer next year.

Once they are gone, *poof*, they are gone for a year.

You can save 10% all week long during the preorder time.
(They will not be on sale again at the beginning of October.)

The digital stamps will be available at the regular release time on October 1 and they will be on sale like usual. Also, shipping on Hocus Pocus will begin October 1…when the other new stamp set is announced. :)

I’m rather excited about this little set. So many fun things you can do! And I think that pumpkin is my favorite.
