We Have a Winner!

Congratulations to Corbin Lichtinger
He is the winner of our August Creative Challenge.
Our challenge product was MINIATURES.
Corbin has won a $50 collage gift certificate!
For more info on our monthly challenge click HERE.
Corbin is involved in a really cool endeavor called the truck farm project.
The truck farm is a project of Foodcorps.
Click HERE  for more info on the truck farm project.
Corbin's truck farm is in the back of an adorable, vintage "61 Ford F100 and he visits local schools to raise awareness and educate kids about the importance of eating fresh food.
Corbin added a miniature farm scene to his truck farm and says "though the tomatoes and the lettuce are captivating, the miniature 'free range' farm animals I picked up from collage really draw people (of all ages) into the Truck farm."
If anyone out there is interested in having Corbin and his delightful truck farm make an appearance at their child's school feel free to contact him:

Thanks for entering our challenge Corbin, 
We think you and your truck farm are awesome!

NEW goodies from across the globe

We've been stocking up on new products like crazy lately! Below are some of our new favorite things from all over the world. 

  Mexican Saints Wallets

 Hand carved stamps from India. These measure approximately 2 inches across.

Mexican clay skeletons and devils. These have charm loops attached for including in jewelry or creating ornaments.

 Tin hammered birds from Haiti. These also include a charm hole for use with multiple projects!

 Indian Good Habits bags that can fit all of your drawing supplies, cosmetics or anything else really!

Glass eyes from India, with a soldered metal backing.

 Hand tinted Mexican Saint cards.

Mexican-inspired sugar skull jewelry available at both locations.

And our favorite: market bags! Currently we have four images in several styles. Perfect for those end of summer beach trips or a grocery store stop.

Lastly, we had such an interest last year on our large sugar skulls, we've created blank ones for you to decorate yourself! Works great with paint markers, rhinestones and glitter pens. Available at both locations!

Most items above are currently only available at our Alberta St.location, unless otherwise noted.
