WOW !! & ?? This Spring marks our 20’th year as Frog’s Whiskers Ink.
It seems like only a few months ago we were setting up the stamp display at the farm, going on the road to Mall shows, overhauling the workshop for stamp production and then drawing stamp number1 “Emily Rose” …. setting up shop in town, expanding the floor area, doing the Toronto Gift Show, drawing stamp500 “Skating Pond”, going to Scrapfest Kitchener, buying the building next to our shop and expanding again, Drawing stamp1000 “Chestnut Street”…. and now as Rose-Marie works with her sketch pad for another design image, we prepare to get ready for
Spring on the 20’th, our Store Anniversary on the 20’th,our Annual Open House, April 7’th Scrapfest Kitchener, April 13-14 Pin-it Canada, May 4-5 andSpring classes (listing soon)….. We send a thank you to everyone for being part of our lives…. we hope we have made your “spare time” more fun as well
A funny thing happened on the way to the shop the other day…. we were told of a great show starting up in London… called “Pin-it Canada”
The only Consumer & Trade Show of its kind in Canada for the Creative Art Industries, bringing together consumers, retailers, wholesalers and influencers in one location
Seems like a nice idea…. so we gave them a call. A few moments of conversation with organizer Audrey and we felt like old Cardmaking buddies. We don’t have a booth number yet but mark your calendars for this crafting event…
I think Rose-Marie is giving me a hint when she gave me this Card. I was to put up on the website under [Samples] It is a wonderful Card with layers & ribbon, colour & texture… complete with a very seasonal message.
A message that is more complete however with a few chocolates and a filled wine glass.
In our house that is chocolates that are gluten free and the wine glass is filled with Diet Pepsi.
Remember… it maybe the thought that counts but an actual Card will make things right.
Now where are those stamps….. Happy Valentines Day !!
Young or old … Every love story has a tale to tell.
Some are blissful or wild, some are amazing and others….. are adventurous. This Card project will work for any story…..
