De-stashing the Paper and Stamps Closet

When my son told me I had enough paper and stamp supplies to start my own craft store, he wasn't kidding.

Last week, I opened the closet and realized there isn't an inch of room to store new supplies. Even as I cleaned it out and tried to re-organize my space, I knew I had it my maximum limit of paper, stamps, fabrics, and threads.

So... it's time for me to let some of it go.

I'm the one who wants to save everything because one day I may need it again, but not today.  So as I sit and sort and decide what to keep and what to let go, I remind myself that every once in a while we all need to clean our closets. Get rid of the old and look forward to the new.

I'm looking forward to the new and I hope you are, too.

They say someone else's loss in another's gain.

I've listed many of my older CTMH stamps on ebay along with paper packs and soon will be adding some fabric fat quarters to the listings and odd and end craft items like punches, beads, and the like.

I've also got a stack of supplies, including some of my scrap papers, I'm planning to donate to a local pre-school to add to the kids art supplies.

If you're looking for a particular stamp set or paper, let me know I'll check my stash.

In the meantime please feel free to check out my ebay listings here:

Bargain Books Guest Book Albums on Sale

I'm doing a little cleaning up in the inventory closet this month.

I've added a new category to the shop. BARGAIN BOOKS.

All the guest books in the Bargain Book category are books 30% - 50% off regular price.

**Please note that Bargain Books are not subject to additional customization options. They do include the free name card on the cover as with all my other guest books. But any additional pages or embellishment options will upgrade the book back to it's regular sales price. **

Here are a few of the books currently on sale in the shop:

These are the last ones of their design. Once these books are sold, they will not be available again in my shop.

Postage Rate Increases as of January 17, 2016

It's a brand new year and changes are happening.

This past year I shipped over a hundred orders!

You all are so awesome!

I wanted to update you all on a few changes taking place in the shop. As many of you may or may not know -- as of January 17, 2016 the USPS has increased the postage rate.  I hate saying this, but because the increase, the shop rates have raised, too.

Because Priority Mail Shipping (U.S.A residents) has jumped from $5.75 to $6.45 I've decided to add some addition options for shipping.

 I have always charged actual shipping and used Priority rates for shipping all of my guest books over the years. Mainly for two reasons. #1 and 99% of why I use Priority is because most people tend to wait till the last minute to order guest books and need them very quickly. 2. USPS provides flat rate envelops that work great for shipping out book orders.

Because I don't want to discourage anyone from having a book made or ordering from the shop I've added First Class Shipping to the listings in the shop.

When I first started making guest books, it was because I wanted to be able to offer an affordable alternative to store bought "generic" guest books. I wanted to create books that were customized and personalized especially for the person(s) and event.

I still do.
And I still want them to be affordable to you all.

You now have the option in the shop to choose between a more economical rate of First Class Shipping, Priority Shipping, and Express Shipping when ordering.

With those options please be aware of the following delivery times.

First Class: according to USPS it's 2-5 days (within USA). It's more like 3-7 days.
So if you're ordering a book be aware of the time frame using this shipping option. It takes about 3-5 days for me to create and package your book. So make sure you add the time to the shipping time for an estimated arrival. 5 day creation + 5 shipping = avg 10 day delivery.

For countries outside the USA you'll need to check with USPS on delivery estimates.

Priority Mail: is 2-3 days within the USA and 6-10 days for most countries including Canada.

If you're every not sure if a book will arrive in time for an event, please be sure to contact me before purchase. I try to respond within 24-48 hours of receiving inquires, but sometimes I do get very busy and it may take longer during those times.

Express Mail: is 2 days within the USA.
I only recommend this if you're in a big hurry of needing your order, as most cases Priority Mail gets it there in about the same time and is less than half the cost.

I'm less than 40 orders away from hitting 1,000 orders. I'd love it if you all could help me reach that goal before the end of next month! Help keep me busy. :)

Stay warm!

We created a variety of them that I have in the Cards and Tags section of the shop now.

Hot Cocoa Gift Packs

The kids will be getting out of school soon for their holiday vacation. Before they're off they like to give a little something special to their teachers and school bus drivers. I love this idea I found through Pintrest and have added my own little alterations to these Hot Cocoa Gift Pocket Cards.

We got carried away making them this past week and so they're are some available in the shop made up and ready to ship here. 

Due to the cost of shipping, you have your choice to receive them with or without the hot cocoa packet already in them.

6 Hot Cocoa Christmas Pocket Card Gift  Favor - Polka Dot

I can't wait for the kids to share these with teachers, school bus drivers, and even their friends.

They're even great for a little something to share with your co-workers anytime of the year.

It's getting close to Christmas, now, are you ready?
