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!
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
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.
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:
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).!
We certainly cannot get enough of these and we know you can't
either! We keep increasing the metal
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.
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!
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
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!
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
