Spring 2017

Spring Has Sprung!
Welcome Spring! Although we had a pretty uneventful and snow-free winter, it's certainly nice to see the flowers and trees back in bloom! You'll want to take advantage of these 70-degree's temperatures to walk around the village of Nashville. Nor will you regret a side trip to Brown County State Park!

While in Nashville, stop into Wishful Thinking for some creative inspiration. You'll find samples cards and scrapbook pages filling our walls and shelves. Want more inspiration? Check out the multitude of books and magazines! Or, better yet, join us for a class (check our schedule below)!

  • We are thrilled to welcome Stampendous' new "Pink Your Life" brand of stamps for you! Directly from Italy, these new designs are created together with Italian artist Nicoletta Zanella.
