Happy Valentine's Day

Ahhhh.  You guys.  I just want to tell you how much I have enjoyed our journey together over the past 14 years (14 years!!??!!).  Simple little visits to The Pickle have turned into amazing friendships and I thank you for that.  Your support of me (and all my gushing) and small business means more than I can express.  I hope you have a Happy Valentine's Day.  
These adorable muslin bags measure
7cmx10cm or 10cmx15cm
and they are perfect for that special little gift
(and under $2!)

Open Today!
If you need any supplies for a little project today (it's never too late!), we are open.  Don't forget to grab an incredible, delectable treat from Homebaked Kitchen while you're at it.

Valentine Make & Take - SATURDAY!

I know it's not the third SATURDAY of the month but it didn't seem right not having a little make and take just days before Valentine's Day. Join us SATURDAY from 10-2 for a little self taught project...make a card for someone special. We are using these cute little Pebbles die cuts with witty sayings like the one above and more!  Please join us. We will have a table set up ready for some fun. Everyone is welcome. 

And don't forget to pick up Homebaked Kitchens one of a kind, decadent and beautiful desserts while you are there.

Crate Paper - Chasing Dreams & Oasis

Chipboard Stickers

You all know about my love affair with Crate Paper.  I mean this company blows me away with their designs and trend setting art.  You thought you loved their swans....wait til you see Maggie's parakeet!  

12x12 Paper Pad
 The fresh colour.  The versatile designs.  Chasing Dreams has ME dreaming of layouts and projects galore.
Phase and Gold Foiled Flat Sticker Sheets are in stock
6x6 Paper Pad

 I brought in the basics of this line including 6x6 paper pads, 12x12 pads and chipboard and flat stickers.  This line is a must for any Maggie Holmes fan.  My girl crush continues.....

 Now have a look at Crate Papers Oasis line.  This collection speaks to me and my love of California.  Oh...don't you just wish you could be there, in Palm Springs, in a cute 'lil camper wearing a shape flattering one piece bathing suit!  Truly.  I decided to bring all loose sheets of 12x12 paper for this line....the papers are incredible and great for card makers too!  Pretty much the entire line is in.  Catch a wave on over to The Pickle.  Radical Dude.  (Ok.  Ok.  I'll keep chasing those dreams.)


PS...Lots of new goodies are rolling in from CHA (cough...cough...I mean Creativation).  Spellbinders fans will love the new dies (yes!  Including the rainbow and unicorn!) and there is a great new paper line from Jen Hadfield called Simple Life.  Those who love the wood tones will adore this line.
