Happy Birthday Crafty Capers!

We had our big 15th Crafty Capers birthday party over the weekend. I want to take the time to thank everyone who came out in the icky rainy, windy weather! Thankfully, it was toasty and warm in the store (and we had treats too!).
Here are some of the photos I managed to snap. I taught most of the day so this are quick snap shots!
Some of the store helpers working hard the night before the party

Here is Miss Carley resting up for the big party

New Idea-ology is in the store

Oh my, just realized it has been 2 months since I posted on this blog! Very naughty of me! It has been a very busy 2 months! The store has received 90% of its Christmas and 100% of its Halloween products and it seems people are in full on Christmas mode with loads of Christmas products flying out the door each day. Plus Crafty Capers turns 15 on Oct 15th so we are, of course, having a party!
Just wanted to let everyone know that we have NEW Christmas idea-ology products now on our shelves and it is sure to sell out quickly. Stock is limited and some items are already sold out at our supplier so what we have may be all we can get! So stop by soon if any of these goodies are must haves!
New ephemera

Gilded Christmas time rubons

Tidings tape

Jingle brads! We tried ordering these last year and could not even get any so this year we were more on it!

Christmas typed tokens - all these gems come in one package

We have 2 sizes of trees - small and mini! Both super cute!
Thank you to everyone who stopped by the blog! I'm hoping to get back to a regular blogging routine shortly.

SPC show - nearly done!

I am doing this show on my own this year normally it is not my job to do make and takes or take photos so I keep forgetting to take photos of all my wonderful finds. I do have a few so I will share what I have. Tomorrow is the last day of the PSC show and I have a couple of last minute additions to a few orders then we are headed for home.

Here are a few of my finds this show.

Day 2

 Well Sunday was a busy day however we stayed in the hotel all day. The vendors came to us. Unfortunately, it is really hot down here (Salt Lake City) and the hotel air conditioning is not good! I don't think I have ever sweated so much in my life! Gotta keep remembering to drink my water!
We got some sneak peaks of Lawn Fawn Fall/Christmas stamps and dies. Love Lawn Fawn? Not to worry we ordered 95% of the new release!

My friend Lisa getting a Sizzix Twist and Style tool 

Photo Play paper has a fun new line called Slightly Sassy! We ordered it all plus their new  Luke 2 Christmas line.

Graphic 45 has some new lines one of which is called Off to the Races. Lots of horses and ladies with large hats.

Another new Graphic 45 paper line
More projects sneak peaks to follow.
