20 20 20WOW !! & ??
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 number 1 “Emily Rose” ….  setting up shop in town, expanding the floor area, doing the Toronto Gift Show, drawing stamp 500 “Skating Pond”, going to Scrapfest Kitchener, buying the building next to our shop and expanding again, Drawing stamp 1000 “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 and Spring 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

On the Road Again !!!

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…

Be Mine

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. Card154

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 !!
