Ippity is in the House....

I just received my first big order from Ippity Stamps & have them in the storefront (see tab above or click here).  I have all the new releases and a couple oldies but goodies all on sale.  USA/APO shipping is free.   Orders over $30 receive a free pack of October Afternoon's newest paper.
I have the entire new release in stock in addition to some of my favorites from prior releases.

I'm really excited about bringing these stamps to you.  I've been a longtime customer of Unity Stamps & if you've read my blog I can't say enough good things about them.  These stamps are high quality rubber & give clean detailed stamped images every time... and they are so cute.

I can't wait to start creating with them.  But those of you who are friends on Facebook & Twitter know that I've had water coming into the scrap room.  The carpet was soaked so it ruined 3 of the base cubes that make up my desk - where all my paper is stored.  Thankfully the paper is fine but the cubes are warped, slimy and had mold.  It wasn't just the skylights leaking it was the wall that the contractor fixed.  Since I wear shoes and it's carpeted I didn't notice the small amount of water until I saw some mold when I moved my rolling tote.  I pretty much had all the walls lined with storage stuff so couldn't see the walls/baseboards.  
So I've lost 2 shelves, 3 cubes, rolling tote, several tote bags, vintage furniture storage items, new pack of American Crafts cardstock, all my 12x12 white & kraft cardstock (they filled one slot in the cube - this was what I was most upset about next to the vintage furniture & Tombow tote bag lol). 
Since we didn't hire the contractor... the appraiser wasn't going to sign the loan approval papers if repairs were not done so bank who owned the house didn't want closing to fall through so they hired and authorized repairs).  So now the contractor isn't returning my calls & I'm going to have to send a certified letter because the problem sure wasn't fixed.  I hope he will live up to his word... otherwise I may have to write to Mike Holmes (Holmes on Holmes HGTV) lol to fix the mess they made.
So this is the relocation mess I'm dealing with right now moving everything to the living room (thankfully we hadn't bought any furniture yet so it was pretty empty since we only had 1 living space in the old house).  I'm missing the built in unit already.  I think I need to take a trip to ikea & get one of those big shelving units everyone has.
I also got my order from today.  (UPS guy had a double delivery).  So many goodies that I'm dying to get creative with.... it's killing me.  (Pink Paislee paper, tape & tags, Sassafras paper, edges & tags, Girls Paperie paper, Studio Calico paper & tags, Dear Lizzy paper & flowers, Lily Bee papers & diecuts, Little Yellow Bicycle paper, Prima flowers & gems, Webster's Pages, Jenni Bowlin tags & calendars, Cosmo Cricket, letters Martha Stewart punch, Maya Road pins & chipboard & this great newspaper from Donna Salazar to make flowers & things with.
Thanks to my friend Lori for the gift certificate she sent me back in Feb. for my b'day.  Lots of great scrapbook pages & cards will be made with these yummy products.

Well I guess I'll never be using these if I don't get back to organizing & moving things around.

Have a great day!
