Welcome to Brown County! We hope you take
some time to visit this little part of the world during the winter
- it's just beautiful when there's snow! Check out the things-to-do
calendar on the Brown County Visitor Center's website for a list
of all the fun things going on this season, both in the village
and in the county - www.browncounty.com.
It's going to be pretty busy at Wishful Thinking this season as
well. Mark your calendars for the weekend of February 16 - 18
and join us for our 3rd Annual Crafting Retreat! We've also
got a full calendar of classes, from beginner to advanced paper
crafters. Don't miss Heirloom Production's Rubber Stamp and Paper
Crafting Show, which will be in Danville, IN, in March! Read on

at the shop.
Inventory is done (whew - we have a lot

Our shelves are packed with all kinds of wonderful stuff for scrapbooking

can we not mention Tim
when we talk about new stuff? If you're a metal die user (or want
to be), check out his adorable Sidekick

to choose from! One of the newest spring collections we have is
called "Wandering Ivy"
which features pretty blues, greens and whites. This company also
has some awesome metal dies, stamps and thin wooden embellishments!
Dies and Embossing Folders

you!), we've expanded our area for both metal dies and embossing
folders! You'll find a spinner rack full of them, as well as a
large chunk of wall space devoted to our new passion!

- Based on the century-old novel of the beloved lives of four
March sisters, and their story on domesticity, work, and true
love. The classic images will evoke memories of generations
of women from the past and present. The rich color palette
incorporates blush red, grassy green, vibrant yellow and azure
- When there's sun, sand & sea, life's a beach! This playful
collection pulls together the deep ocean blues and is complimented
with coral and cantaloupe, and a burst of sunny yellow.
- Floral Shoppe is a beautiful collection that celebrates
all things floral! This oasis of a collection offers four
different floral designs offered in two different color palettes,
you'll love the rich greens, bright indigo, sunlit yellow,
dramatic pinks, reds, and burgundy.

cards, and meet other stamping enthusiasts! How fun is that? Please
