Firefly Jars.

This morning I shared a quick video of the Firefly Jars project that we have in the store on Twitter and Facebook (you can find the video HERE).

I thought I would also link everything up here with a photo and the project sheet as well. Everything you need to make the project is available on an endcap at the front of the store in-between aisles 20 & 21.

As I mentioned in the video I think these would be a great decor addition to any deck, patio or outside area for your summer BBQ's and get togethers. There is something so whimsical and fun about them when they are lit up...they definitely bring me back to my childhood when I really did bring jars full of fireflies into my room for the night.

You can find the project sheet, with a detailed list of supplies and directions, HERE.

If you make your own, we would love to see them!! Just add a link to your image in the comments.

Natural Life Room.

Today I wanted to share a couple of pictures from our newly expanded Natural Life room. Located in the front of the store this room has so many fun products to chose from.

From wall hangings and magnets to key chains and buttons, you're sure to find something fun - and they are also all so useful! Whether you are looking for something for yourself or trying to find that perfect gift - be sure to check out the Natural Life room the next time you are in the store.

Curby's Closet Patterns.

If you are looking for a perfect (and unbelievably adorable!) baby gift I've got something fun to share with you today.

Our quilting department is now carrying six styles of these very cute baby slipper patterns by Curby's Closet.
Each pattern comes with a detailed material and instruction list and even includes instructions for two sizes (3-6 months and 6-9 months).

We also have in-store samples made of four of the patterns, which are hanging in aisle 25 - and I guarantee once you see them in person you will have a hard time passing up the opportunity to make such a cute gift for any expectant parent you know.

(The patterns are available for $9.00 each and can be found in Aisle 25.)

Jordana Nail Polish.

Now that we are all finally pulling out our sandals and flip-flops here in Minnesota, it would be the perfect time to stop by and pick up a few new bottles of our Jordana Nail Polish.

Near the end of aisle 13 in our Fashion and Apparel room we have two endcaps filled with a wide variety of colors and types of nail polish, and also so many fun ideas on how to dress up your nails.

Included in the selection we have available are standard nail polish, Pop Art nail polish (with a precision brush) which is perfect for creating your own design, and polish for special treatments and french tips.

At only $1.97 a bottle it is a perfect way to add a little color and fun to your summer wardrobe.

New Baking Supplies!

We're excited to let everyone know that our baking aisle has now been expanded to include even more of those fun baking supplies you are looking for.

Our baking supplies aisle now includes 20 4 foot sections and contains some really great new products!

A few of the things we are most excited about are:

1. New DecoPac Cupcake picks, placs and rings. There are many different options such as Twins themed, stars (perfect for those 4th of July cakes and cupcakes), wedding and anniversary.

2. New Wilton Cupcake supplies, including cupcake picks, liners, and treat bags. A few that caught my eye right away were the Cars and Minnie Mouse themed pieces. With the new version of the Cars movie coming out this week it would be a great party theme - and of course how could you go wrong with Minnie Mouse.

3. And the new Punch, Cut Decorate! line from Wilton. We now have all the supplies to get you started on using this system to decorate your own cakes including sugar sheets, and border and single shape punches.

Be sure to come in soon and check out all the new things we have in Aisle 2!

Also, if you would like to learn more about cake decorating check out our Events Calendar for a listing of the cake decorating classes we offer.
