I've been Designing Again

 So when we were in MA, I took some new papers and they sold very well.  I'm excited to introduce them at shows and in classes.  I put them online and more to come!!  They go with EVERYTHING!!  Can't be better than that.

I found a local printer that is doing them for me so I don't have to pay shipping.  I've ordered over 3,000 sheets so far in the past week.  I love paper!!

Have a great Holiday Weekend.

Till next time,

Absolutely Love it!!

I was at the Akron Adventures in Stamping show yesterday.  I purchased the VIBE starter pack.  Playing today.  Absolutely love it!!  This is a unique technique.  It’s easy.  The finished project is beautiful.  Thanks.

The View has Changed

 In the beginning:

It was a 10 foot booth in Southfield.  Our first, our beginning.

Here is our booth now:

30 ft and sometimes still not enough.

Here is our schedule for this year:

You can also find them on our website with active links to the promoters.

Time Sure Flies

 WOW, hard to believe I last posted over 6 months ago.  So much has been going on.  Our orders from Germany got here with some glitches but I've already ordered again.  We have LOADS of 3Ds in our online store. We have a new VIBE account and Critters just sell themselves.

We did a new show last October in Allentown, PA.  WOW, it was our best show since we started 15 years ago!!  It had been bumped to October, but it will be back on it's original schedule in April.  All our shows are listed on the website with links to the promoters for all the information.  www.thepaperhollow.com

I've also been doing craft shows.  I did three this past year, but hoping to do a few more this year.  I've been keeping busy crafting when conventions are not on our calendar.

Here are some pictures of what I've been doing.  I'll post future shows I'm participating in.  Come give me a hug or a "hi".  It's good to see my customers faces (or eyes with masks).

 So, till next time,

Couldn't get the pics to position where I wanted, but at least you can see them.  Any look familiar??

Happy Independence Day!!


Hope everyone is good and enjoying the wonderful holiday weekend.

We had a get together at my son's yesterday.  It was very relaxing and fun.  We met several of his neighbors and had lots of good food.

The fireworks have been banging all day (and the last few nights).  One of the our neighbor's kids has been playing his music full blast and rocking (bass) the windows and doors. lol  Hey, go at it kid until 9 pm, then you better be done.

Our order from Germany is stuck in US Customs.  Been there since June 30.  The box was supposed to be delivered yesterday, but now tracking doesn't say when I will get it.  I'm so excited to show off the new items from Reddy Card Crafts.  Only half the order was billed and shipped due to it being our first order and trying to avoid customs, but it didn't work.  Maybe next time since our orders won't be this large.

I will keep you informed with the new items on our site.


Till next time,

Makes Me Sad - vent

 Today I was reading a post from a fellow vendor and someone commented this:

I was so looking forward to the show at John S. Knight and went with my stash of money and ended up spending a total of $3.00. I was so disappointed. The only two booths that even interested me were Marco's and Stamper's Anonymous, but I was in such a mood seeing the disaster of a show, that I couldn't even shop.

It really made me sad that someone would only shop 2 local booths and not even really look at the vendors who traveled hours and many miles to be there.

First we were still in a pandemic atmosphere.  Booths were limited by the promoter because of the limited amount of people allowed into the building at one time.  This was not the promoters fault, but the restrictions by the state.

Second, There were still over 20 vendors there.  That is a good amount for an average show.  I understand that Akron is not an average show, but this woman was spoiled. 

Third, I think many more vendors could have been shown if Royal Acme didn't have so many companies and were allowed to set them all up.  Privilege.

Luckily we had a good show.  We carry items that no other vendors carry.  People need to branch out of their comfort zone and try something new.  They need to "shop" a show and check out every vendor and expand their minds.

 Okay, rant over.  Our next show is coming up.  Michigan mandates have been lifted, but we are on our way to New York. Not sure what will be happening anywhere in a month with this new variant.  Jeff and I are both vaccinated and look forward to being on the road again.

 Remember, we are open 24/7 online and can fill your paper crafting needs with our unique items.

Till next time,

 Hi All,

Things are going extremely well here at the "reservation".  I just want you to know as of July 1st Blogger.com will not be sending out my posts by email.  We'll have to find another way of keeping in touch.

Guess I pissed someone off today.  They sent me a message through blogger as anonymous, but I know who it is.  I hope he loses his job, honestly.  I'm saving the note just in case he gives me any more trouble.

Our shows are starting.  We've had two this year and they will pick back up again at the end of July.  Come see us and say "hi".

We got a distributorship from Reddy, in Germany.  LOTS of new 3D's!!  I can't wait to get them.  I ordered 55 new designs and they are in process.

Hope you are doing well.
Peek at our new items in the store.

Till next time,
