He makes me happy…

AND he needs a name. If you want to play please help me name my newest cre­ation. Just leave a com­ment (US only please. I’m so sor­ry but inter­na­tion­al ship­ping is too expen­sive). If I pick the name you sug­gest I will send a sweet lit­tle win­ter RAK that includes some Maya Road Snowflakes. I am going to see if I can teach this as a class local­ly.

I just dis­count­ed some of the kits I had left over from teach­ing at the Crafty Scrap­per this past week­end. If you are inter­est­ed now is the time to snag them up. Each kit is FULL of prod­uct and comes with step by step instruc­tions and col­or pho­tos. I do not count out sin­gle but­tons, chip­board let­ters or cut up my papers. I give you entire tins, full sheets or pads of pat­terned papers and yards of rib­bon. On top of the already dis­count­ed price if you order two kits you get an addi­tion­al 10% off — 3 kits an addi­tion­al 15% off and 4 or more kits an addi­tion­al 20% off. I ship flat rate so sev­er­al kits can fit into one box. I must say I had such a fun day Sat­ur­day....
