Locals, Please Help Find Molly

Hello Beary Sweet Friends.  I'm here today with an special request for our local friends.  My dear friend from high school, Sherri, has lost her precious pup Molly.  Molly holds a very special place in her heart and is sick over her disappearance.

Molly was last seen near Frances Slocum State Park (Pennsylvania).  This was almost three weeks ago, so she can be anywhere now.  That was almost three weeks ago. She is all white and weighs about 13lbs. She had on a purple and white collar with tags and answers to Molly.   We are all hoping that someone has found her, and she is safe.  We are praying that someone will return her to her rightful owner.

Here are some pictures of Molly and her buddy Splash.

If anyone has seen Molly or has any information about her whereabouts, please email me at  Any help in bringing Molly back home is greatly appreciated.

Until Next Time

Coming Soon: Belles 'n Whistles Stamps

Hello Beary Sweet Friends!  You've been keeping me very busy with our "Spring Cleaning Sale" (aka, overhaul).  There was little time last night to add more goodies to our clearance section, but I promise I will be back at it tonight.  I have the next round ready.  I won't be starting it until after I finish pack up all of today's order for tomorrow first shipment.  I can't Thank You enough for helping us clean.  Who ever thought Cleaning could be so much FUN!   I'm sending you all BIG Cyber HUGS

I am so excited to bring you more good news today.  New images illustrated by the ever so talented Elizabeth Bell from Belles 'n Whistles Stamps are on their way!
I love these images... then again, I love anything Elizabeth Bell creates.  I have collected dozens of Elizabeth Bell stamps over the years.  Sadly, many of them have yet to get acquainted with an ink pad.  I'm sure I'm going to have dozens more that will need a formal introduction.

I anticipate both the SweetArt Girls Collection and the Fairy Friends Collection to arrive by Monday, May 16.  You can pre-order them HERE.

Here is a quick peak at some of these adorable images.  Visit our website to view the entire collections:

Spring Cleaning SALE!

Hello Beary Sweet Friends!  I hope you all had a fabulous Mother's Day.  I awoke to flowers on the kitchen table, handmade cards and a fresh cup of java courtesy of my 3 little munchkins.  We spent the day doing "the usual" stuff, getting caught up on some housework and laundry, hubby cut the grass and then we celebrated my nephew's 1st Birthday.  Not all that exciting here, but the fresh cup of coffee made by my kids was the best cup of coffee in the world!  Since Sunday, they have been making me coffee every morning!  What a treat :)

Now that Spring is officially here, it is time for some serious Spring Cleaning.  I prefer to use the word OVERHAUL in this instance!  My office is overwhelmed with crafty goodness everywhere to the point I have a small pathway that leads to my desk.  Not to mention I have no place to craft besides my dining room table.  Hubby sure would like to see my crafty stuff back in my office where it belongs.
This is just the start of it.  If you follow us on facebook you will know what I've just added to the clearance section as I update each product line's inventory and reassign the items to our clearance section.  I will be adding lots more goodies every evening.  This is by far the BIGGEST SALE I have ever done.

Visit our website HERE.  I have a running list on the homepage of the most recent categories that are on liquidation.  You can also browse through our Clearance Department HERE as some items will only be found in the there.

One thing you should keep in mind when shopping on our website:  Out of stock items may occur as inventory is reduced.  Please keep in mind that just because an item is in your cart, it does not mean it is yours just yet.  Inventory is not reduced from our website until after checkout is completed.  Another shopper may pick up the same item and check out before you.  When this happens, we will issue you a refund or a store credit for the out of stock item.  To be fair, all orders are filled by order number on a first come, first serve basis.

Until next time,

A few new products...

Hello Beary Sweet Friends!  I hope today finds you all well and looking forward to the weekend.  In my case, I know that hubby will be working Saturday, and I will be tending to as much housework as I can.  These 60 hour work weeks hubby has been keeping are really getting to me!  I have so much to do for the shop and I am so far behind on housework it is sick!  This week is "spring cleaning" in our township.  It's the time of year when our township accepts almost anything that the residents need to get rid of at little or no cost.  All the clutter in my house simply must go.  Getting to it has been a chore with limited or NO help.  I only have until Saturday to get through it all.  The clutter is driving me insane!

We have some new product in the store that arrived over the past week that I would like to share with you.

Bo Bunny Gabrielle and Timepiece 6x6 paper pads have finally arrived.  We've also been restocked on roughly 20+ colors of Copic Markers, Ez Mount, and those adorable Popcorn Bear Stamps.

Do you like Seam Binding.  It's the latest trend!  I'm please to let you all know that we now have 21 beautiful colors in stock on our website.  This stuff is truly awesome!  Use it just as it is, or if you like the "shabby chic" look, mist it with some water or your favorite misting spray, scrunch it up then let it dry.  Oh... so much fun to play with.

We have also re-organized our **Clearance** category to make it easier to browse for the items you are most interested in.  More products have been added, and there is more to come.  The savings are huge - up to 75%, and we will be adding lots more over the weekend.  The amount of product we have is too much for the space that houses our inventory.  Our loss is your gain.  Anything on clearance is first come, first serve.  Just because it's in your cart, doesn't mean it's yours so be sure to act quickly.  Our clearance department has been getting cleaned out quickly... even before I have the chance to announce that something in on clearance.  If you place an order with us, and then find something else you "need", I will gladly combined the orders and issue you a refund for the shipping overage... only if your original order has not been shipped.

Be sure to peek in and see what's new, and what is at great savings!

Until next time!
