If you can't say anything nice...

...then don't say anything at all. Please.
To whomever is writing mean comments on the blog, please stop. Or at least stop posting them anonymously.You don't have to read my blog. You don't have to shop at my store. And I feel silly for even having to write this.

I'm so excited....

...and I just can't hide it.
The Slice Personal Cordless Cutter arrived in our store today.
So, naturally I took one home to have a play. I love it.
The downside is definitely the adhesive. It is mildy annoying. And I would recommend buying the large glass mat (it's just easier) But this thing is small (easy to take to a crop!), and super easy to use. And it's cordless (rechargeable batteries) so you don't have to be next to a plug in. Plus you get a lot on the cartridges that are only $45. (Much better than Cricut).
For more on this cool new machine check out whyslice.com
or pick it up in store for
$169.99 but only until January 5th
after that it's regular price ($199.99)

Kim so sweetly (or not) pointed out that it has been a month since I last updated my blog. What can I say? I've been busy. You should check out the last couple classes we have before Christmas. They're good. Sign up. You won't be sorry.
Last night I taught a class. Full House! And I had a great time. It was nice to see some ladies that I hadn't seen for a while (Lori, Angie, Tara & Karen).
So here I am updating my blog. And I have nothing to say. So I am taking this "assignment" that Kim gave me. All of the things I have done are in bold. We might just have some things in common.
