September 2008

We Accept PayPal!


While I was at Monroe Fair some of my 4Hers and parents of same, came up and told me I should see how they placed with our paints and transfers. So I toddled off down to the 4H building with my trusty camera and got these two (2) pictures. I want to congratulate Amanda and Cheyenne on their ribbons. GOOD JOB!!!!

Monroe Fair 2008 4H

Mikayla and James had entries, also, but my camera ran out of batteries at this point. Sorry you two. You did a good job!!!

All of you distributors and instructors out there should remember that 4H groups are a good source of satisfaction as a teacher and good source of revenue. You can go in and teach the individual groups of young people, or you can teach groups of leaders. Try it - you'll like it.

Ginger's Fair Booth at Monroe 2008

Here is picture of my fair booth for those that are interested in doing fairs or craft shows. It doesn't take a lot of room if you remember to have drawers and shelves to put everything in or on. You can show off painted items by using them for covers on everything.

Rae's Country Corner Fair Booth at Jackson 2008

This is Lori Bartlett's Cameo booth at the Jackson Fair this summer. Again, you can see that you don't need a lot of room for a nice looking arrangement. She used painted items to cover the shelves and what was on them. Yet, she could carry a nice selection of everything that we carry to sell + a work area to show folks how easy painting is.

New Gift Set

Here is the second Gift Set: You get a Table Topper (P1220) + a Primary Kit (K004) + a Sandpaper Blotter + four (4) transfers (T4565) + directions on placement of transfers on a tablecloth. (Order under GS2)

Gift Set 2

You get all of this for just $45.00. The normal retail cost on this would be $53.00. You save $8.00 and get a great gift for someone for the holidays, birthdays, wedding showers, new home gift, etc. By putting a Primary Kit in there instead of just the colors that I think you need - the recipient gets to choose the colors for the Table Topper that goes with their décor.

The Table Topper is 52" x 52" and can be used on a small table as a regular table cover or on a bigger table, placed cat-a-corner, as a table topper.

You can do the transfer in blue and green if you want or any combination of colors that are in the Primary Kit.

You can put the transfer just as a center design or you can just put it in the corners or maybe in the center of each side or maybe you can combine all three ideas and have a table topper with lots of designs on it.

September Special

Fighting Stallions

The monthly special for September 2008 (MSSEPT) will be the K007 and the T4774. The Special price is $37.75. Yes! I'm throwing the new transfer in free. That means at $37.75 you are saving $5.85 on this great combination.

This Special would make a nice gift for someone for the holidays. It gives them the transfer and the paints to paint it. It looks great on a shirt, so maybe you want to buy them a plain shirt to go in the present and they are good-to-go.

There will not be a workshop in the month of September:

Monthly Quilt Clubs

Since we have quite a few Quilt Paks in the Line now, I thought we should go over different ways to use the transfers that come in with the blank quilt blocks.

I know that some of you are not into quilting, but you like the sets of transfers.

Here are some things that you could do:

Instead of quilts you can make throw pillows with a different design on each side. That would give you six (6) different throw pillows. If you want to make twelve different throw pillows - or six - or nine -you just need to order extra sets of blank quilt blocks (P601-$5.25) to use for the back..

Instead of using the transfers on quilt blocks you can put the designs on shirts, flour sack towels (P327), mini flags (P322), tablecloths (P1220, P1221, P1222, P1223), a Wallhanging (P324), dresser scarves (P326), placemats (P1289), tote bags (P1492), pillow cases (P1595), pants, skirts, jackets. There are just so many different ways to use the transfers.

I like to put several designs on a single shirt. I buy men's shirts at yard sales and then I make it into a theme shirt. I might make a unicorn shirt, or a shirt of flower faces. I have a Christmas shirt with many different designs on it. How about a snowman outfit on a sweat suit?

There are just sooo many ways to use the Quilt Paks it boggles the mind.

I think this month I will do things a little different. I think sending you the cover pages of the two new quilts would let you show your customers a clearer picture of what they need to do the two (2) new quilts.

Transfer News

This month we have 2 New Transfers


Transfer #T4773 - Country Cousins

T4773 - Country Cousins

They use the exact colors that are in the new K007 kit. I think they are just cuter than heck. What do you think?

To go with our new Old Fashioned Snowmen Quilt I want to introduce T4775 - Snowman w/ Tree. You can use this for a matching throw pillow - or - one lady in Ohio is doing 20 of them on shirts for gifts. I think you will get lots of use out of this one.

Paint News


With 107 Cameo Paint Colors to choose from your sure to find the right color for your project.


Those of you who order the IK - the kit has one of each paint color that is in Line

The cost is Only $288.25. The retail cost of these paints is $318.93.


Now I want to introduce our newest kit. It's is an old number - but a new kit.

K007 – Country Kit -$37.75 Retail = $41.95 Savings = $4.20


This kit includes the Mini Tote (C349) and 12 of our country colors.

The colors are: Greens = 119 & 193; Blues = 152 & 153; Browns = 168 & 302; Pink tones = 154 & 154 & 156; Orange to Light Yellow = 169 & 149 & 195.

If you set these up together you will see that Mysti has come up with a good country combination. She worked with it for a while, since we have more that 12 country colors, and she tried to set up the best combination that she could. It was really fascinating to watch her put them together and put splotches of paint down to make sure they were all in the right family. She would pick up other colors – then put them back – then pick some of them up again. It took a while for her to use her extremely practiced eyes to spot just the right color combination for us.

Classes Being Held by Our Friends in Other Locations

All the instructor/dealers that I put in this section have a lot to teach and would like to teach all they know to you. So contact them and get started now.

We have a new craft store carrying our products. See us at 'Crafty Folks' right on the Alaskan Highway in Taylor, British Columbia. They will be running workshops at the store so you can learn right there how to use the products and they will have the products for you to buy. The address is 10501 99th St., Taylor, BC. Call and register for your class today (250-789-3720) or just go in and look around. Lisa will be glad to see you.

I know I have others in British Columbia that order from me - this store might be just what you’re looking for to pick up your products near you instead of waiting for them to come by Post.

Final Words

I’ve been trying to hold down the price on shipping – but now I’m starting to lose money on it and prices are going up at the Post Office starting May 14th. (Prices at other shipping places have already gone up.) The increases they are talking about, on top of what I was already losing, means that starting May 1st, 2007 my shipping prices are going to go up.

Remember that shipping is figured on your retail total before your discount.

If you think I should give you a lower shipping amount on your order because it is a small order, you can call and we might be able to adjust it some. No promises though. I’m not in the business of making money on shipping, but sometimes the small orders are what off-set the big orders.

Well, I guess that's all for this month. Keep that those suggestions coming. I need every one of them. See you at a meeting.
