The Giveaway goes to...

We randomly picked this comment:

Sherri said...
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Cosmo Cricket, K & Co and my newest love is 7 gypsies. Crazy about Blue Moon, too -- gotta love that free shipping

Sheri email with your info and we'll mail out the goodies to you!

Thanks for much for all your comments we had a blast reading them! I have forwarded your favorites to Scott so he can be sure to buy them at the show! I'll try to do a giveaway every month or sooner.

Vintage Roses Scrapbooking Kit

Our latest kit is now up. I made a few extra add ons for fun. I love the 60 page Journal Book by KandCompany every page is beautiful. It's a hard decision whether to write in it as a journaling book or to rip out some of the pages out as large journaling spots.

I've changed my mind about making a scrapbooking kit on the last Monday of each month. I'd rather just make them as the mood hits or maybe whenever new goodies arrive. When I make new kits I'll post them on the blog to give you a heads up. I'm working on a small kit now and it will be up soon.

3 New Cosmo Cricket Collections of paper, paper crafting kits and stickers should be for sale on tomorrow! The completion of the collections will be shipping to us in mid-August. We will be carry all the products in these three collections..

Jolly by Golly a happy winter line!
From the Cocmo Cricket blog about the FSC certified paper they are using:
Cosmo Cricket Goes Green!

As a paper manufacturer, I often feel a little twinge of guilt when friends talk about environmental issues. So, I am over-the-top excited about the fact that now Cosmo Cricket paper is FSC certified.

So, what does FSC certified mean? It's actually a lot more than just protecting the environment. The FSC is very concerned about the social and human rights aspects associated with consuming natural resources as well as envirnomental issues.

Here's what they say, "Forests provide us with clean water, fresh air and they even help combat global warming. They also provide food, medicine and important natural resources, such as timber and paper. If managed responsibly, forests and plantations benefit forest people and the global community. However, in some countries as much as 80% of the timber is harvested illegally. This often involves violation of human rights and destruction of protected forests."

The FSC is the only group that:

prohibits conversion of natural forests or other habitat around the world
prohibits the use of highly hazardous pesticides around the world
prohibits the cultivation of genetically modified trees (GMOs)
respects the right of indigenous peoples around the world
controls each certified operation at least once a year – and if they are found not to comply, the certificate is withdrawn
By the way, our previous lines were printed on paper from these same forests, it has just taken some time...... and a lot of paperwork...... to acquire the certification!
