Guess where I'm going. . .

I got an early birthday present and in the morning I am headed to Roundtop, TX to the Spring Antiques Fair. I can't believe I'm finally getting to go! I have this feeling however, that I'm going to be frustrated with what I can't get home. I will take some photos and share my finds with you when I get back!

In the meantime, April 1'st will come while I'm gone, so here are some peeks at this month's Papercrafting Kit (layout by Becky) and this month's Project Kit (a sweet and simple photo display). Also available on the first - all of the new JBS Coredinations paper pads and single papers (15 styles total). Check out the Inspiration Blog for more photos on Wednesday!


And as always, everything is available at midnight central time (Wednesday night).

And. . . stay tuned as we will be having a mid-month release at Mercantile with some fun vintage crafting kits, new individual JBS products, new vintage items and more!! I will announce the exact day and time next week, but the plan is for Thursday March 18th.


Oh. . .we also added back just a few of this month's sold out kits. Get them while you still can!!


Happy weekend!

Vintagefest is coming!!!





I have some fun ideas up my sleeve this time, including a hosted trip to the Flea Market!!

More info. on registration early next week but hold the dates:

Friday April 23rd and Saturday April 24th 2010, Mt. Juliet, TN

As always, this is a very intimate event. I like to learn everyone's name and hug them goodbye when they leave! Although we may try to expand the venue in the future, it will never be a "100's+" event. I can't wait to share everything with you. We are going to have a great time!

(P.S. - if you attended the event in December you will be getting a direct e-mail from me, hopefully this weekend).
