Monthly Highlights

What's Happening
in October?

Fall for Wishful Thinking!
If you are a fan of fall and all it's wonderful colors, you will love Brown County at this time of year. While you are visiting our lovely neck of the woods, stop in to our shop where you will find all kinds of wonderful inspiration to record your visit and inspire your crafty side! Now's the time to start on all those holiday cards - from Halloween, to Thanksgiving, to Christmas and everything in between!



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

  • Halloween papers, embellishments and stamps are just getting cuter and cuter! Ok, some may be a bit spooky, but they're still fun! We've got papers from Reminisce, PhotoPlay, Simple Stories, Authentique and more! If you're like us, you won't be able to resist.

  • And, of course, we've got everything you'll need for those Autumn and Thanksgiving cards and pages. Love the
    Ella & Viv and Carta Bella
    papers!

  • Tim Holtz's Alcohol Lift-Ink Pad from Ranger! WOW! We haven't been this excited about a new product for a long time! You're going to absolutely *love* this brand-spankin' new product. If you're familiar with and enjoy using alcohol inks, you'll want this...seriously! This clear ink is designed to lift color from non-porous surfaces and transfer to porous surfaces. Use this with clear or rubber stamps to remove ink from backgrounds created with alcohol inks.

  • November: Turkey - What else do we Americans think about (besides football) on Thanksgiving?

  • December: Jingle Bells - One of the joyful sounds at Christmas-time!

  • January: Let's Go Skiing! - Although big ski resorts in Indiana are not the norm, let's see some ATCs with a skiing theme (water skiing is acceptable!).
