Welcome to The Inspiration Station

Dear Debra,
The first part of our "face-lift" has arrived - our new sign! 

Hopefully this will stop people from coming in looking for
 beads (they've been gone for more than 5 years!) and being disappointed. 

Summer schedule - I want to let you know that we will be having summer hours during the month of August.  I know it's a ways away, but often times we have people who travel and I want to give you a "heads up".

During the month of August ONLY - we will be closed on Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday. It is typically very slow in that month and closing will allow us to have some work done on the store. 
 Our big project is painting the front of the store and that will take some time and require ladders and scaffolding out front so we are going to take advantage of the closed days for that. We are looking forward to the "face-lift"!  Our open hours for August will be: Thurs-Fri 10am - 6pm, Saturday 10-5pm and Sunday noon-4pm.

Summertime also means "Christmas in July"
which is always a big day.  This year, Donna will be hold those classes on Sunday, July 20th.  The first class (noon-2pm) Is completely SOLD OUT.

The Second class from 3pm-5pm is a "Card in a Box", shown below. In both classes you will be given a 6x6 pad of paper to create more goodies at home.
Class is $28

Payment is required at the time of sign up. Please check our website for what supplies you need to bring to class.

We have many new paper lines in stock, New dies from Sizzix and Tim Holtz, fun new stamps, brand new colors of StazOn Ink and much more.

Oh, and did I mention - We are also working through our papers and stamps and clearing out many older designs in order to make room for the new that will be arriving!  As always, we continue to bring in new products weekly to inspire you. So Come in and visit our CLEARANCE section!
