Fall 2017

Autumn Has Finally Arrived!
This has got to be the prettiest season in Brown County, IN! The leaves are turning into beautiful reds, yellows and oranges, the temperatures are cooler, and all the shops are open in the village of Nashville!

Make sure you take some time to visit Brown County State Park sometime in October for some jaw-dropping autumn scenery. We don't want you to miss out on any of the fun, so check out the visitor center's website to see a full calendar of events,

We've got lots of events and classes going on right here at Wishful Thinking, too! Join us for our Monthly Card class on the 2nd Tuesday of the month. You'll want to sign up for a class to make some handmade Halloween, autumn, and Christmas cards (our Class Schedule is below). Of course, you'll want to be here for our Halloween and Christmas parties! All the information is in this newsletter, so read on!

New Stuff at Wishful Thinking...
Since this is our busiest time of the year, the UPS and FedEx folks are here on almost a daily basis - it's awesome! Our shelves are full, full, full of everything you love for your scrapbooks and card making. Here's just a peek of what you'll find when you drop by:

  • 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").

  • You'd better snatch up the stunning Kaiser Craft "Christmas Jewel" collection (purples & silvers). Since it's a limited edition we can no longer re-order them. We've also got Kaiser Craft's "Christmas Edition" and "Mint Wishes" collections!

  • Have we got metal die cuts! You'll find a die cut perfect for any season; don't forget to check out the baskets near our Die Cut Wall (yeah, we have so many in stock, they don't all fit on the wall). I must say, the dies for Halloween are just so cool!

  • 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!

  • One of the most sought after items for Christmas this year will most certainly be Tim Holtz's new Stamp Platform! While you're in the shop, ask us to show you how this works. We know you'll want one! Don't forget to pick up extra magnets and the handy Zipper Sleeve.

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 (5:30pm- 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.

10th Annual Chocolate Walk, Sat. November 11,
sponsored by the Brown County Humane Society. All the money raised on this day will go to benefit the over 1,400 homeless pets that the animal shelter cares for each year. Visit the Humane Society's website at for ticket information.

This will be our 8th year participating! So, grab your tickets from the Humane Society and you, too, can walk around Nashville getting your fill of delicious chocolates! It's like trick or treating without the costume! Hint, hint … we've got a coupon in the Chocolate Walk brochure!

We appreciate all of you for your support and friendship, so we're going to treat you to a HUGEMONGOUS SALE from December 22 - 30! Watch your emails, our website and our Facebook page; we'll have more details as we get closer to the date!

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.
