Last year, my first time in CA. CHA was in town, right next door to Disneyland. My daughter Emily (who stayed home, natch) was beside herself knowing that I was *so close* to Disneyland and didn't go. This year, she's still as dramatic as she still *can't* believe I'm *right there* and still not going. But a sign of her growing up: she's just as excited that I will be close by to Hollywood where her beloved High School Musical actors might be. Sigh!
Heading to Anaheim. My lists are still a mile long but everything will turn out fine. The booth and packages have made it there. Catalogs should get there today. Staff are prepped and ready to go. Everyone at home is prepped and they have enough clean laundry to last them before I return.
Have you figured out that I've just been stringing you along before I show you our new product line? :) Just kidding. I finally did get a shot of some of the new stuff - so without further ado, here's what's new:
Since I was home sick I shot these on my carpet, lol. But I was so excited to get these - it has been an adventure learning all about dies and chipboard let me tell you! Anyway, we have 7 new sets and albums as well - 4x4, 6x6 and 8x8. And probably my most favorite part of it all is that these were made in Canada, and we managed to get it priced very competitively to China-pricing. Most of our sets are $1.20 - yes, a buck twenty - and albums are between $1.60 to $3.20. I'm pretty happy about that as these are just as cheap if not better, than a lot of chipboard you see on the market right now that are made overseas. I'm not saying getting stuff done overseas is bad - no, it's just a fact of life - but I'm all for supporting local businesses and it makes me happy, that's all. I have a pack of chipboard from a well-known company that I bought from my LSS just a few weeks ago and it was for 20 pieces of square chipboard and it cost me $4.50. The FontWerks brand for the same amount of chipboard will only cost $2. And did I tell you they're made in Canada???!!!! :)
You should be getting the FontWerks newsletter in the next few days with more sneak peeks, and we'll be showing pictures from the show floor, hopefully so hang around. And tell me what you think about our new addition, will you?
Til then, still not going to Disneyland, unfortunately.
