Monthly Highlights

What's Happening
in October?

Happy Halloween!
We do love to celebrate everything fall and Halloween here at Wishful Thinking! Easily one of the most beautiful times of the year, there is nothing as lovely as Autumn in Brown County, Indiana. And, of course, what is October without Halloween? We have lots of great opportunities to celebrate this fun holiday - from spooky card classes, our monthly ATC theme and our annual Halloween Party, Nashville's best, you won't want to miss any of it!



New Stuff at Wishful Thinking...
There's always something new at Wishful Thinking! Check out these:

  • Just like you, we can't get enough 12x12 papers! Check out all the awesome fall and Halloween ones in the shop. One of my current favorites is "Amber Moon" collection from Prima Marketing - beautiful orangey pumpkins & butterflies, muted tans, browns and yellow flowers & leaves with gold foil accents! Just add the coordinating flowers and chipboard stickers to complete your cards or pages. And for those Halloween pumpkin carving photos, you'll want some of the papers from Reminisce's collection "Jack's Revenge."

  • While on the topic of papers, you'll be excited to see all the new Graphic 45 collections ("Penny Paper Doll Family," "Master Detective," "Seasons," and "Winter Wonderland").

  • Now's the time to start thinking about Christmas! Luckily, you will find everything you need for your handmade cards and scrapbook pages right here. Our Christmas rack is stuffed with rubber stamps, papers, embellishments, dies, ribbons and more (religious, outdoorsy, Santa, reindeer; serious and too cute). You'll definitely want to see the new Penny Black samples - grab a copy of the instructions along with the stamps you need and WOW! your recipients!

Wishful Thinking Monthly Card Classes!

Plan on gathering at the shop on the 2nd Tuesday of the month for some serious play time and card making! Join us from 1:30 to 3:30 to learn new techniques, create beautiful cards, and meet other stamping enthusiasts! How fun is that? Please call in advance to reserve your seat, 812-988-7009.


Our Annual Halloween Party, Thursday, Oct 26 (5:30-9:00)!

Once again, we welcome all costumed characters to an evening of camaraderie, shopping, crafting and spooky fun! Come dressed in your favorite Halloween costume (ok, the costume is optional, but it really is more fun to dress up)! Not only will it be fun and silly, but it'll also be worth making the effort for the chance to win the Best Halloween Costume. The winner will receive a $50 gift certificate to Wishful Thinking! Also, if you have the guts to attend in full costume, you will receive 30% off all Halloween and fall items!

This is a FREE event and all are welcome! However, please call ahead to let us know if you're coming - 812-988-7009.

Annual Used Stamp & Craft Sale in July was a Huge Success!
Thank you to all the folks who participated in our Annual Used Stamp Sale! We saw a lot of happy faces during the sale - happy bargain shoppers and happy sellers! On Day One of the Sale, our tables were groaning with the weight of all your nifty stuff! By the last day, you could actually see the table again! Remember, it's never too early to start packing up your gently used and no-longer wanted craft supplies for next year's sale.


Artist Trading Card Swap!

Wishful Thinking has been sponsoring an Artist Trading Cards (ATC) swap for 10 years and continue to be overwhelmed with your creativity. This is a fabulous and fun way to increase the number of ATC's in your own personal collection. We'll announce a theme every month, by email and on our website.
