This wonderful canvas wreath will be a show stopper in your home for years to come. It consists of 8- 6x6 canvases that are alternating burlap and canvas. There are 8 more smaller canvases on top that are also alternating burlap and canvas. Ribbon, metal accents, thickers, bling and your special mementos can enhance this wall art for a wonderful home decor project. Students will be allowed to choose the papers they use to match their decor. It will be a great class! Saturday, June 11th, 2-6pm $75

Cat's Crop Update

Everything we do, eat, wear, & buy is going UP in price so we decided at Cat's to go DOWN on our crop prices to help you have fun this spring & summer. Our roll back starts this Saturday, April 16th. All 1st & 3rd Saturday crops are now 10am-10pm for $10. (You still get your own table and lots of chocolatel) Come join us for some great Crop Fun! We are also introducing our CATalyst Crops starting in July. Soooo what's that you say? A "Pawsitive CATalyst" speeds up reactions. Use us to enhance your creativity & page production (speed it up) for TWO DAYS along with your fellow creative croppers ideas. These crops will be Fridays from 10am-MN and Saturday from 10am-10pm for $20. That is 26 hours of cropping for $20 at your own table. Check the website for dates, Mom & Me Crop, Saturday May 7th, 10am-9pm, $40 for mom & daughter. This crop is for moms and daughters of all ages.

The Stepchild Blog

This poor blog gets left out like Cinderella! I get the website updated, keep posting on Facebook and the poor blog never gets a new look. OK, so I am bad--I shall try very hard to be better. Three things to keep updated keeps me too busy with the store and all the new product coming in. Speaking of which--we have TONS of new goodies since the last post! Easter and Summertime product is taking over the store. We have great product from the likes of Echo Park, Fancy Pants, Basic Grey, Sizzix, Petaloo, Adorn It, Bo Bunny, Queen & Co, Bazzill--you name it and most likely it is here. More is coming in this next weeek as well. Check out the website: for all the lastest pics and for the most up to date pics like us on Facebook.
