Specials and New Stuff ...
We've got some new cling rubber stamp sets from Stamper's Anonymous! The very popular Stitches, as well as Faded Type, Mini Glitch, and Ornate Trims to name a few!
Penny Black has sent us some gorgeous new samples using their new summer stamps and dies! I love the way they've used their die called "Framed". Stop in and check them all out!
Are you familiar with a company called Craft Consortium? If not, you'll have to take a look at their absolutely gorgeous papers, charms, washi tapes, and stamps! We've got some of their 12 x 12 and 6x6 papers pad collections: "The Riverbank," "Tell the Bees," "The Emporium," "Wildflower," and "The Herbarium."
KaiserCraft's new baby collection is so sweet! It's called "Little Treasures." And, we've restocked their beautiful lavender collection called "Amethyst" - very rarely do we re-order a paper collection! Visit our Facebook page and look under Photos / Albums to see their Amethyst collection.
It may be 90+ degrees outside and humid, humid, humid, but we've been thinking Fall, Halloween, and Christmas! Several of our vendors are giving us sneak peeks of their new holiday papers, stamps, and dies. Some are already shipping - We've got PhotoPlay's new "Gnome for Xmas" on the floor already. We'll keep you posted via email and on our Facebook page as more of your new treasures arrive!
We've also gotten in some brand new sports papers from Reminisce, in kits as well as individual sheets and stickers!
And, now for something completely different...we're now selling JIGSAW PUZZLES - 500 or 1000 piece puzzles to keep you and your family occupied safely at home! During our shutdown, my family and I have put together several challenging puzzles (we just started our second 2000 piece one!). It's so rewarding to complete a puzzle, plus it's a great activity you can do as a family!

Artist Trading Card Swap!
Wishful Thinking has been sponsoring an Artist Trading Cards (ATC) swap for 10 years and continue to be overwhelmed with your creativity. This is a fabulous and fun way to increase the number of ATC's in your own personal collection. We'll announce a theme every month, by email and on our website.
May we suggest while you are at home during this unprecedented time, to join us by creating some ATC cards based on our upcoming themes? We'd love to see your creativity and it is a great way to connect to other crafters!
