Hey crafty friend! I’m back to share a reminder with you, as well as some updates from our favourite suppliers! Let’s start with the reminder, because this event is happening this Saturday, September 24th.


Earlier this month, I shared with you that I’ve donated 2 items for the Lower Mainland Humane Society‘s Silent Auction fundraiser. Well, it’s happening in 2 more days – this Saturday, Sept. 24th.

The $25 ticket purchase is for a yummy lunch at Donegal’s Irish House. If you can’t make it for the lunch, you CAN still attend the Silent Auction, which will be going on from 12:00 noon until 3:00 pm. Be sure to get your bids in on some fabulous donated items, including my 2 donations, of course!

These are the items I have donated for the Silent Auction – a Coaster Set of ‘watercolour dogs’, and a large framed ‘all you need is love, and a dog’.


Have fun at this event – and I hope you have the winning bid, on whatever you bid!


If you’re like me and love to watercolour, now is a great time to try out Brusho Crystal Colours! You can order direct from Colourcraft in the U.K., and take advantage of this offer.

Of course, it’s not just Brusho that’s on sale – you can use Code MC22S at checkout on your entire order! They also carry Liquitex and Golden brand paints, Koh-I-Noor pencils, and lots more.  Just click on the graphic above to go directly to their online site. (This is not an affiliate link – I just want to share the great savings with you!)


This Flash Sale ENDS TOMORROW, September 23rd, so don’t wait!

You don’t even need a code – just ‘add to cart’, and your discount will be automatically applied. CLICK HERE to start saving.


Altenew has a terrific release of new embossing folders, stencils, foil & embellishments to help ease you through the seasons.

They’re calling this the Enchanted Winter release, and you can see why.  Rich jewel-tone colours and bright foils, floral stencils and amazing embossing folders.  I think my favourites (so far) are the Berried Cotoneaster and the Poinsettia Cluster 3D Embossing Folders.  I think that no one does 3D embossing folders like Altenew does – you *have* to check them out!

To see everything in the Enchanted Winter release, just CLICK HERE.


As always, anything with the name Tim Holtz on it is flying off the shelves! So if you see something you want – don’t wait! Joggles has an automatic 15% price discount already applied, so you never miss out on a deal. Some of the new Idea-ology items have already sold out, but you can ask to be notified when they’re back in stock.

Above is just a sampling of the new release. To see everything available and in stock CLICK HERE.

If what you want is out of stock at Joggles, you can pre-order them for Canadian distribution HERE, at Scrap ‘N Stamp – click on ‘What’s New’.


Well, I hope that I’ve given you plenty of ideas, and where to shop, along with some great deals, in today’s post of reminders & updates. If you do get out to the Silent Auction, please leave me a comment, & let me know what you thought!

I've always liked to create things, but I'm not a great artist, or sculptor, or any type of 'traditional' artist - but I love to create! I love the satisfaction of a completed project. Whether a card, painting or other project - as long as it can create a smile, evoke a feeling, or some type of reaction in the recipient. I hope you will enjoy sharing my creations, and occasional ramblings; I'd enjoy having you create with me! :)

I love to read what you have to say! Thanks for commenting ;)
