Product List


  1. That is one problem with being a demo - you feel you can't use the retired products. But, some people still keep them and use the stuff for their own cards. I have trouble letting go! I think that giraffe is so cute and always thought it needed to have a balloon on it's tail! The monkey is so cute riding on the elephant with it's balloon too. This is a great set for kids cards but I bet there are other ideas for it.

    The zoo in Des Moines is a having a Brew Party where they have a bunch of craft brewery stands. I think it is for the people and not the animals! I could see a lot of fun signs made with this set at the different tents! I think the proceeds goes to charity since it is like $25 to get in.

    1. I definitely keep more stamps than I should, then I run out of room and just say "OK, this HAS to change! :) I especially keep sentiments that I can use inside, because I don't always show the inside of a card unless it has something clever.

      Hmmm... a Brew at the Zoo sounds interesting! :) Our Phoenix Zoo has Boo at the Zoo at Halloween Time. We've never been, but I am sure they have a lot of fun.

    2. I think they do the Boo thing too and I have not gone to them either. I think the kids dress up in costumes - maybe as their favorite animal. I don't remember but that would be fun. As a kid our little town just had a few animals at our zoo - a bear, goats, and a couple other animals. Sort of pathetic when I think about it compared to zoos now. Funny the things I remember from the "olden days!"
