Friday Giveaway #3!

Hello hello!

HSN’s 24-Hour Craft Day is finally in sight! With less than two weeks until the big shows, we’ve still got lots of fun new products to cover. If you haven’t already, be sure to mark your calendar for Wednesday, July 23rd at 7 a.m., 5 p.m. and 9 p.m. (EST).

Our winner this week is Barbara McClendon! Hooray! Applause! We’re wrapping up a package of goodies just for you that includes our Everyday Gift Tags, Antique Botanicals Decoupage, Bat-tastic Collection and Autumn Wreath Stamps!

Now for a little behind the scenes peek at the Atlanta Gift Show. One of my favorite things to do before a trade show is dream up and put together beautiful flower arrangements.  Take a look at this stunning assortment in our showroom this week. It takes my breath away!
