Distress Stickles?


Yup! You read it right! DISTRESS STICKLES!

Distress Stickles was 2 years in the making because Tim Holtz wanted to find just the right look to achieve a chunky glass-like texture and nostalgic shimmer of mica...the result - pure distress! The glitter in distress stickles is not a metallic glitter like our original stickles, it has a timeless sparkle of vintage glass glitter without the glass! Accent stamped images, tags, titles or just about anything you want to glitter and shine.

Don't forget, we will also be attending the Great American Scrapbook Convention. After all, that's one of the reasons for this trip!

We will all arrive on Friday, June 4th. Most of us will probably arrive by mid-afternoon. We will all meet up at the Drury Inn where we will check-in, go to our rooms, unpack whatever and fight over who gets what bed. Then, we'll probably meet in the lobby bar for our 3 complimentary alcoholic drinks. Afterwards, we'll head up to the suite (which I will be bunking in with Roe and Jenn) and enjoy our complimentary popcorn and sodas while eating some awesome pizza!!!

Saturday, June 5th, we will all meet up in the hotel Dining Room for a FULL breakfast, southern style!! Complete with hash browns, eggs, bacon, pancakes and much, much more!!! From there, we will head over to the Convention where we will all split up into groups or individuals and shop, shop, shop. At lunchtime, we will all eat together there and share what we have purchased and what great deals we found and where. Then, per Trisha's suggestion, we will watch this guy peel a banana ever so slowly as he prepares our smoothies. We will, then, continue with our shopping until we are all done or the convention closes. We will finish off the day with 3 more complimentary alcoholic drinks, popcorn and sodas as we head to our suite for a slumber party where we will share all our new goodies and laugh, giggle and relive our younger days as we get into pillow fights and freeze other's undies and.....oh, hold on.....sorry.

Sunday, June 6th, we will meet up in the hotel Dining Room again for our last full breakfast and fill up for the way home. Somewhere that afternoon, either before or just after lunch, we will all break and head home.

Croppin' at the Speedway

If you are interested in sharing a few hours with your friend in a homey atmosphere to crop, chit-chat and munch, email me and I'll save a spot for you. I have room for 2-4 people.

Prices are $5, $15 or $25. You will have your own 3'-6' table (depends on how many reserve), use of a variety of items for free. Snacks and other goodies will be provided as well. I will also have a few items for purchase.


I have converted my new home office strictly for Cropping. It is an 11x10 room. You may come and go as you please. Plenty of lighting and space available. You can park on the street and I will help you load/unload your scrapbooking supplies. The cropping room is upstairs and I will happily 'valet' your items up and down the stairs while you relax and help yourself to some snacks and drinks.

I will also have a variety of 'give and take' scraps, punches, scissors, templates, die cuts, stamps, ribbons, brads and more avaiable for use. For a small fee, you can also have unlimited access to the printer and cricut machine.

I can accommodate up to four scrappers; however, you may choose to use 6' for yourself. If this is your choice, your price will slightly increase, unless only two have reserved a space. In which case, you'll get 2 spots for the price of ONE!

I will be readily available for questions and suggestions. I will also have a few idea books/magazines available for you as well.

Hope to see you soon!

Send me an e-mail! Let's see what we can do! Check out the CALENDAR below for available days and times.

Sorry, but smoking will be strictly prohibited.

WE've MOVED!!!

I have moved over to Brownsburg, Indiana, just 1/2 mile west of 267/136. Once we've completely moved to our new location and things have settled a bit, I will get the crops going again.

I'm sorry for any inconvenience and I'm so sorry to disapoint anyone. If you are looking for a place to crop until then, be sure to check out Archiver's and coming soon, Treasured Memories Retreat!!

Again, I'm so sorry for any inconvenience, but rest assured, we will be up and running again very soon! On the bright side, moving means more space to crop!!
