This past weekend was the Rubberstamp show at the Big E and Donna, Dawn & I went up on Sunday. We saw lots of our customers there including almost all of our Card Club members. The show was much smaller than in years past, but for Dawn it was her first year so she was like a kid in a candy shoppe!
What I like is being able to see all of the fantastic samples that the vendors have displayed. It is so much more inspiring than just seeing the stamp. We get to go to trade shows and see things like that all the time, but for the consumer it's hard to visualize sometimes. We were able to pick out several upcoming card club stamps so we are now set through November.
Donna has finally decided on a focus for her Christmas in July classes. The morning class will be card making and the afternoon class will be a stamped gift box, an ornament topper, and an ornament. The second class is called "Deck the Halls" and will include a Holly Berry House stamp in the price of the class.
Also, we have had MANY requests to carry Twinkling H2o's and we are finally able to bring them in. They will be the featured product in the August Card Club Classes and Donna will be using them in the Chrismas in July classes as well.
