New button packs were stocked on the shelves of Little Red Cottage late last night, and they were going as fast as I could put them up!! :)
Check out the new packs: Wonderful creams, tans, and brown in CAFE LATTE.....always needed primary colors in PLAYGROUND (shown at left)......pretty peach colors in the PERFECTLY PEACH pack......did you just get your Easter photos printed? SPRING LEAVES...such pretty light green buttons......SWEET BERRY FARM...oh, a punchy collection of hot pink, light pink, blue and green buttons......my new current favorite! Check them all out in the button section of the shop! There are 22 different button packs to choose from right now! :)
Need to getaway from it all?!? My good friend Christi from FrogFeathers.etsy.com is having a Scrapbooking Retreat at the San Diego Scrap Inn on May 15, 16, and 17th! The San Diego Sscrap Inn is located in the North County/Escondido area, central to the San Diego, Orange County, and Inland Empire areas. She has some room for daytimers if you cannot get away for the entire weekend......I love it at the Scrap Inn!! Contact her at ChristiAbshier@roadrunner.com for more details!

Ohhh my.....a large box full of wonderful cotton ric rac goodness arrived at Little Red Cottage's door step this afternoon.......I knew when the guy in the Brown Truck did his little honk honk signal that something GOOD was waiting out there!
Check out the ribbon and trim section of the shop to see all the gorgeous restocked colors of jumbo ric rac and polka dot ribbon! Light pink, hot pink, denim blue, lime green, oatmeal, black, lavender and apple green!
Then check back soon.......because there just might be some brand new colors on the shelves......oh yeah.... hehe.... :)
We are celebrating the boy child's 7th birthday this weekend........the grab bags are full of whoopie cushions, big plastic bugs and other fun goodies--thank goodness...the dollar section of Target was just waiting and ready for a little boy's birthday! Everyone have a glorious weekend!!

I had such a good time creating the tags to showcase the LOVELY silk flowers that came in recently.....I wanted something that would keep the dozen layers of silk petals in place, and be just as fun and useful as the flower itself...........voila! Manila shipping tags, some paint, and my sewing machine to the rescue....
Use these beauties as they are for a wonderful (and useful!) gift tag ....buy several different colors and mix and match the petals for all sorts of different looks on your next scrapbook layout, mini album, or collage artwork project. Each set of flower petals is only attached to the tag with a brad, so they are easily removed for other projects..........................the garden is definitely blooming behind the picket fence at Little Red Cottage! :)

Go check them out in the Button Packs Shop Section of the Cottage! :)
