New Copic colors!

It is so good to be back!  I've been down south for a bit - but it is good to be home sweet home.  Thanks to Riley and Chassie for holding down the blog for me. 

There's a lot of things to talk about - I will start with new COPIC colours - Yeah!!!! 

There is something very therapeutic about coloring - don't you agree? Here are 12 more reasons to color!   

G43 Pistachio 
G46 Mistletoe 
BG57 Jasper 
BG90 Gray Sky 
E84 Khaki 
E89 Pecan
BV34 Bluebell 
V22 Ash Lavender 
V28 Eggplant 
RV52 Cotton Candy 
R56 Currant 
YR27 Tuscan Orange

You can check out the colors below:

Skribbles and Scraps are taking  preorders for the set of 12, at the great price of $65 for the set. 

Let me save you pulling out the old calculator (does anyone really use a calculator anymore? - I use my cell phone!)  This great price for the set works out to $5.40 each. Gotta have them, and they are fabulous! 

In February 2012 these yummy colors will be available in the
Sketch Marker style, as well as Various Ink, (refills) bringing them to a total of 358 colors.

So - if that wasn't wonderful enough for one post - there are only two more sleeps until Bob and Jennie leave for CHA Winter 2012 in Anaheim California. 

I hear they are taking Cathy and Sherry again. That's a good thing - 'cause Cathy and Sherry are the ones that get all the good pictures of Bob and Jennie - you know - the evidence! 

I heard about the ones they snapped in Chicago where Jennie and Bob fell asleep - in the lobby of the hotel....and it wasn't even their hotel! Ask them about that! 

Winter CHA is much bigger than CHA Chicago is. That can only mean much more very neat stuff coming into the store in the next couple of months. I can't wait until they get back to get the scoop! 

Just so you know - the store will be open as usual while they are gone. Riley and Chassie and grandma are minding the fort. No crop night on Friday night though. That will give you a free night to make sure there is room in your craft room for all the fabulous new products you know you can't be without!

Don't forget to call and preorder your set of Copics. Reminds me - I need to call and order my set! 

And don't fret if you call and Bob's not there - Riley and Chassie will take your orders!

And the first word is Riley and Chassie's!

Well – Happy New Year everyone! Riley and Chassie here. Remember us - the cute ones? We told Sparkles to take a break – that we would handle the first post. Sorry it has taken so long….we ARE dogs you know, and it’s hard to type with your paws.

We overheard Bob and Jennie talking, and they have lots of very cool human stuff planned for 2012. Jennie will be doing some Technique classes – featuring Ranger Products (‘cause for some reason they seem to love this Tim guy - and he's not even a dog.)

Bob is sourcing out new and exciting things to bring into the store this year. He is kinda a hunter of sorts….and we love that he spends the day in the store on the hunt and feeds us “accidentally” by dropping things. He is just an all round cool dude in our books (ah…do we have books???)

We do have a bone to pick with Bob and Jennie though…..we heard they were going away again. This time they are going to California – to CHA Winter 2012 – and they are leaving us at home! Not fair! Give us a pair of sunglasses, and we can be really cool California dogs just like in the song….” I wish they all could be California …..dogs……..” You know - the Beach Boys song....

They have a habit of leaving us at important times. Remember when they went to CHA last summer in Chicago? They left us here to deal with the birth of their first grandchild. Again – it was a good thing we were here to deal with everything. Riley and Chassie to the rescue as usual!

Speaking of leaving us at important times – did you know they left us alone on New Year’s Eve? That’s one of the most important food dropping days of the year….and no one was around to drop anything!

They both got really dressed up, and told us they were going to Jordan and Gillian’s wedding. Bark! Bark! Another important food dropping event! What were they thinking leaving us at home?

We to this day don’t know if they really went to a wedding – we have never seen any pictures. We’re sure there were tons of young people with cell phones with cameras in them….and yet not one picture was taken! Humans! They were probably so busy dropping food on the floor all night, they didn't have time to take pictures! So – we’ll believe there was a wedding when we see the proof. We can tell you though -that Bob and Jennie look really good when you clean them up….we are the witnesses!

So – stay tuned for an even better year than 2011. Come in to the store and we will give you the scoop on what’s to come. We can be easily bought. All we ask is that you drop a little food……

Riley and Chassie
