Quarterly News

Summer 2019

Happy Summer!
Well, that certainly was a wet spring and early summer! Let's hope the rest of summer is much drier so we get outside and enjoy the sunshine!

We're not letting the weather dampen our spirits though. Stop into our dry shop for a shot of creativity! We get such positive feedback on all the ideas and samples we have scattered throughout the shop. Ask us, and we'll help solve the mysteries of how our samples were done.

While you're here, join us for any one of our dynamic classes - check out the class schedule below. Can't make a one of our classes? Call us and schedule a private class (minimum of 3 people with at least a 2-week advance notice).

Mark your calendar: be here July 12 - 22 for our popular Annual Used Stamp and Craft Sale! The participants have already started dropping off their stuff. As we go through their boxes, I can guarantee you'll find some amazing bargains! See more details below.

New Stuff at Wishful Thinking...
We're always stocking our shelves with goodies for you! The most rewarding part of my job is finding new, exciting stamps and scrapbook papers for all of us to play and create with. Ask me what my current favorite stamp is - it's sure to change from week to week! Stop in and explore; you'll find treasures throughout the shop! Here are some of the goodies you'll find:

  • We love Northwoods Rubber Stamps! If you love to color, you'll agree! Their outdoor and floral images are so pretty! Check out the newest sample board with forest, lake, and woodland animal images. These are perfect for those hard-to-figure-out masculine cards! Join us for our Northwoods class on August 9 or 17 (see our Class Schedule for all the details).!

  • Dies, dies, dies! We certainly cannot get enough of these and we know you can't either! We keep increasing the metal dies area, but are still squeezing in more and more. Most of our stamp vendors now have stamps with matching dies (how fun is that?), many of which you'll find scattered throughout the shop.

  • Stamps, Stamps, Stamps! Rubber stamps are our first love at Wishful Thinking. You'll find hundreds (maybe thousands!) of wood-mounted, clear, and cling stamps everywhere in the shop. You'll find birds, butterflies and other critters; you'll find stamps for all the holidays (especially Christmas!); you'll find backgrounds and verbiage; you'll find funky and silly, flora and fauna; you'll find outdoors and fall leaves; you'll find travel and beach. You're bound to find something you've never seen before! Yeah, we've got stamps!

  • Summer means vacation; if you're lucky, you'll find yourself in another part of the US or world. Or is Brown County, Indiana, your vacation destination? Wherever you go, we can help you put that amazing scrapbook together! You'll find papers and stickers for US and world destinations. We know you'll love the US National Park stickers we found - how many have you visited? Some of the more memorable international cities I've been to include Prague (Czech Republic), Edinburgh (Scotland), Munich (Germany), Dublin (Ireland), Paris (France), London (England), Tokyo (Japan), Reykjavik (Iceland) and Lisbon (Portugal) -- yeah, we've got scrapbook papers for all of them…and more! I'm ready to hop on another plane and see where it takes me!

  • Here it is July and we're already talking about Autumn, Halloween & Christmas! We've been getting sneak peeks at some of the new holiday scrapbook papers, dies, stamps, stickers, and embellishments. Oh, boy! You're going to love them! Happily, many will be arriving soon! We'll keep you updated via email and Facebook. Not on our email list? You can register on our website or in the shop.
