Also, you don't want to forget those stamps that are RETIRING as of December 28, 2007. Some of you took your lists with you last month, but I still have a few we can look at when you come to TECH SQUAD. Our next TECH SQUAD meeting is December 12 at 9:00 a.m. , 1:00 p.m. or 5:30 p.m. The format will be a little different this time, since I wanted to do some simple Christmas projects. You will have cards to put in your file, but the samples won't fit! I hope to get photographs taken to include on the instruction cards for your file! I have a very LONG "TO DO" list!

poki and Heather A each ordered and received their SURPRISE BOXES! The supplies in the box are amazing! poki's had a DVD from Lucky Squirrel about Shrink plastic - we don't carry it anymore, but poki loves the product; there was even 3 packs of Shrink Plastic in there, along with lots of ribbons, ink pads and embellishments. Well worth the price! And Heather was one lucky girl, her box contained a Karen Foster Clickit! (Retail value $39.99 if you can find one!) poki had been looking for one for Heather, since KF has discontinued them, but had no luck finding one! Heather was pretty excited when poki called her about it. Her box also contained lots of ribbons, ink pads, and embellishments. We both feel LUCKY!

Congratulations to our November Mystery Hostesses!

Our order arrived today! It is sorted and ready to deliver, but with the Thanksgiving holiday this week (and Mike on vacation!) poki will not be heading out to deliver anything until next week. If you are in the neighborhood of Wendaful Scrapbooks on Saturday, November 24, poki will be at the store all day for the Holiday Open House - Make-n-Takes all day! I'll put all the deliveries in my car, and you can pick them up there if you are planning to come to Wenda's Open House!

Texas Angel Gathering

I just returned from an incredibly busy "business trip" to the Texas Angel Gathering (TAG, for short) in San Antonio this past weekend. The event started at 6:00 p.m. on Friday evening, and it was jam-packed full of incredible projects to see and do! For starters, we picked up the packs for 20 great projects to work on in whatever order we wanted to do them. Stephany H. and her team had everything waiting for us when we arrived. My table mates, Paula Kay B and Lyssa G, were able to complete the projects - poki got sidetracked after 16 of them, as she had a DEMO of the Mini Iron at 4:00 p.m. and wasn't able to get back to work on the 4 remaining projects before we left to head home on Saturday night. But Stephany was kind enough to provide us with a CD of project details, so I know that I can complete those remaining projects. There were demonstrations of the Zutter Binder, Crop-o-dile, Mini Iron (mine), coloring with different mediums including OMS (odorless mineral spirits) with Prismacolor pencils, and a Fantastic Flowers demo that takes silk flowers to a whole new height of fun embellishment! We did a recipe swap (can't wait to show you the beautiful book of recipe art I now have) and a PROP swap (hand made gift) I received a 3-D Christmas tree! If you know poki you know that is right "up my alley" - I love my "fancy folds!" I would post pictures, but don't want to spoil the surprise when I get to share these great ideas with all of you! See you in December for some great fun projects! (TECH SQUAD days are Monday, December 10 at 5:30 p.m. only, and Wednesday, December 12 at 9:00 a.m., 1:00 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. - you can RSVP now for your favorite time slot!)

This is the card which is our finished project for November TECH SQUAD. When I sat down to do the samples for the class, I had no idea which technique would inspire an idea for a card! The stamp set I used is "lusciousleaves" which is on the RETIREMENT LIST (only available until December 28, 2007). The leaves are colored with Chalk Pencils - Warm colors - then blended with Tombow blender (because I couldn't find the Dove blenders at the time - we are using Dove blenders in class!)

Congratulations to October Mystery Hostesses

With the "Celebrate" Special that The Angel Company had for October we were able to have SEVEN MYSTERY HOSTESSES at our October TECH SQUAD (the most ever!): Congratulations to Pat A., Karen B., Arlene D., Debra R., Becky S., Pat W. and Julie M. TAC loved the celebration SO much that they have extended their DOUBLE HOSTESS AWARDS promotion through November. With $100 purchase by the group, we will have FIVE Mystery Hostesses (Level A, Level A, Half Price, Half Price, poki's choice) , with a $250 purchase by the group that will be at least two Level B sets, and more half price items! I hope everyone who has attended TECH SQUAD in 2007 will have a chance to be the Mystery Hostess at least once. (Please remember that you must purchase at least $20 in order to be eligible for Mystery Hostess!) Thanks to all of you for your support with my business.


Everyone loves a SURPRISE, especially one that comes in a big BOX at this time of year. TAC wants to surprise you with a BOX of goodies (Retail value over $100) for the Special price of $50. TAC has collected products (non-stamps) from previous/current catalogues which won't be shown again - but are still GREAT products! I missed out on this SURPRISE last year, and was disappointed when I found out about all the great stuff in the box. I won't be disappointed again this year!

Vintage Stamp of the Month

Vintage Stamp of the Month - Ginger Joy - is available with a purchase of $30 (before shipping and tax) at the Special Price of $4.25. This stamp was previously in our catalogue and has retired, but is returning for NOVEMBER 2007 only. Don't miss out on this cutie-patootie!

Stamp of the Month

When you purchase $30 in TAC merchandise (before shipping and tax), Button Words and/or Ginger Joy can be yours for a Special Price . You can see some samples created with Button Words at on the PROMOTIONS - STAMP OF THE MONTH link. These ideas are just a couple clicks away! Button Words is $6.95 (Retail value $10.95) Ginger Joy is $$.25 (Retail value $5.95) Both of these sets will make a great addition to your collection!

Oh, my golly ... it's the season to be jolly

TAC has a Limited Edition Special for November 2007 ONLY - for this Special at $29.95 you will receive Merry Wishes (Value $19.95) - our bright Christmas Soar With It Collection - and a never-before released stamp set called Merry Words. (Value $19.95) Since TAC has advertised it as a LIMITED EDITION that means we can probably only expect this stamp set to be available ONLY during November. The word set is just too "practical" to pass up! At $29,95 that is quite a bargain!

Retiring Stamps

It's amazing - the retirement list has 152 stamp sets on it, out of 352 sets in the Fall & Winter catalogue! TAC must have so many great new sets that they just didn't have room for some great stamp sets like one of my old favorites - the poinsettia T-156 (you can tell by the number that it has been around awhile - we're now in 2700's). If you would like to see the retiring list before TECH SQUAD, e-mail me and I will send you the list!
