We also have a new magnetic perpetual calendar from Urban Soul. Not only can you move the month, day, and date selections around, but the calendar also comes with a few metallic options for the saying on the bottom so you can change that up from month to month also.

We also have a new frame and magnetic chalkboard from Colorful Devotions. Such a fun line of products!

New in Floral/Home Decor.

Today I wanted to share a few new items from our Floral/Home Decor. Department - who also oversee all of our baking and cake decorating supplies.

First up, we just received copies of this new (very popular) Push-up Pops Book. The book is gorgeous with full color full page photos for each recipe included, and the recipes are great because they vary to include cakes, ice creams, cookies, and puddings. Plenty of ideas on how to fill up some of those Reusable Push-Pop containers. You can find the containers and the book in aisle 2.

Also in aisle two you can find our wide variety of Wilton baking pans. Some of the new ones (which are perfect for spring & summer) are: the Cookie Bowl pan, the Ice Cream Sandwich pan, and the Mini-Cakes pan.

In addition, we also have a few options of Whoopie Pie pans from Wilton. We are also anticipating the arrival of a 'mini' whoopie pie size soon.

You can also find some general summer baking items on the endcap of aisle two. These items included cupcake liners and toppers, cookie cutters, treat bags, and  ice cream cups.

And one final new item from our Floral Department: Prom Garters. On the endcap of aisle 1 you can find a bunch of different styles and colors sure to coordinate with any prom attire.

Spring Project Ideas.

Our Seasonal Department has created some really cute Spring project samples using some of their glass pieces that I wanted to share today. A lot of them utilize vinyl pieces that you can easily add to any piece - so if you see vinyl that you like, remember you can add it to really anything and make it your own.

However, these ideas are so cute you might want to recreate some of them just as they are!!

You can find all of these samples displayed in the store in aisle 5 of the Seasonal department.

A cute pencil jar using our new A+ Teacher vinyl (perfect if you are starting to think about year end teacher gifts!)

Bee Happy candle holder:

Butterfly display:

Cute flower jars - would be great for tea lights!

A sample using some of our lighted flower stems.

A fun display perfect for a dining or sofa table:

A candy container:

Life, Laugh, Love tea light display:

Another fun tea light holder - this one uses our multicolored glass pieces:

A beach themed piece. If you forgot sand and shells from your last vacation we have it covered!

A creative way to display/share your favorite Easter treats:

And finally a decor piece that you can fill up over time:
