Apparently what I found on a blog the other morning was not suppose to be released yet. So the Store that posted it on thier blog is not the desigining store. The Tooth Fairy was apparently designed in Florida and will be release in limted quanity at Crafter's home stores (approx 50 stores). So check your local scrapbook store for the tooth fairy.

Sorry Elizabeth, but it was posted in a blog and that is where I saw it first. Some stores seem to think that they do not have to follow the rules regarding the releases - Exclusive and Regular releases.

Word on what a die is...

I have received word on what another store is releasing in September. I am not announcing it because I am waiting for approval from the store owner. I just don't want her mad if I announce it before she is ready. So when I get approval you will know. Happy Monday.....

Just a reminder..

In order to keep this going I get help from my readers.

-- Remember.. I post the pictures as I get them. If I hear it and have not confirmed it I post it with the word "Rumor". I am honest and only post what I hear and tell it as I hear it. I will not Confirm something that I have not researched and/or find it on the store blog or website. God I sure do like Blogs. They are so helpful. Not only can you get great tips and Ideas. Sometimes they let info slip. So just a reminder - read carefully because if it is rumor it is posted that way and if it is fact there will be a website attached to either the blog or store front.

Happy 4th of July. Please be safe.

A plea for help.

I received an email from a wonderful lady named Cheryle. She is begging for some support in getting an exclusive die made. She is requesting a Covered Wagon. There is a store owner in Portland Oregon who is in the process deciding on an exclusive die. She is considering releasing the Covered wagon. I am sorry to say the store does not have a website or a blog. She does have a Yahoo Group. Think about all those school projects you could use this little gem for. If it is released in a 4x4 die. It would be to use with Remi the beautiful horse released by Shop Remember When. If I find an email address I will post it. I think it would be a great addition to my collection. How about yours... So lets all help Cheryle get her wish. Like I said think of the school projects it would help with...

There is some discussion about this on Scrapyland's message board too.

My two cents on exclusives.. or even just a regular release. I want Wizard stuff. Yes! I am a 32 y/o (almost 33 in 13 days) woman who Likes Harry Potter. I have 2 sets of the books, I have been to England & Scotland to tour the films sites and I am watching Order of the Phoenix as I type this.

Blog Challenge..

For our challenge today... Share with us your favorite quote relating to creativity.

I don't really have a quote.. I think we should encourage creativity in children. Whether it be through stories, games, toys or crafts. Creativity has made this world what it is. Where would we be is Bell did not create the phone. Well we would not have to hear from those solicitors at dinner time. Instead of buying that electronic game buy some art supplies and see what develops. Pull out your craft punches and scissor and give those kids some paper and let them at it. Write down those stories your children make up for you. Did you know that M. Knight Shyamalan.

Children's book
Shyamalan, who credits the development of the movie to a
bedtime story he told his children about what happens in their pool at night,
wrote the 72-page children's book Lady in the Water: A Bedtime Story (Little,
Brown, New York, ISBN 0-316-01734-5) to coincide with the movie. The book's illustrations were done by Crash McCreery. It was released on the same day as the film, on July 21, 2006.

See what a little bedtime stories for his kids led him.. To the big screen.
