It's hard to believe.....today is the end of July....this month has flown past. Can you believe....there is only 146 days til' Christmas! Yikes...seems so early to start planning....but believe me....it isn't. Many of our customers are already purchasing Christmas holiday items......and we're still waiting on many items to come in.
We should have another shipment arriving first of next week from Craig Bachman Imports and it will include more Halloween products.....a new pair of Witch Legs, several styles of Halloween ribbon, a 35" Witch and Skeleton.....can't wait to see those)))) The Craig Bachman Witch Legs will be lime green and black and orange and black.....the lime green will be the first time we've had that color.
As far as our collegiate products.....on the CBI shipment there will be more Football Helmet Ornaments and some ribbon. We also we finally be getting in the "real" Work Creations Mailbox Cover. Some folks have been using the Work Creations Straight Pencil Ribbon Rail as a cover for standard size mailboxes, but we're glad to finally be receiving the Mailbox cover frame.
We've been making a few things here and there and trying to do more tutorials. We get many request for these and as we get closer to the Christmas season, our time will be very limited. We're also trying to get started with a video channel.....so just bear with us)))
This morning we were clearing off the craft table and this little pair of RAZ Witch Legs
was lying there.....so we just picked up some bunches of Purple Cosmic Twist
, secured it together with a chenille stem, put the Witch Legs up through it and put a Witch Hat on it......low and behold, it stood up by itself! Not saying that these legs are made for standing up.....but you could use this as a centerpiece or table piece....might have to wedge some items around the legs to make sure it would stand.....but we still thought she turned out to be a cute little witch)))
The Purple Cosmic Twist
is 20" in width and 10 yards in length. It's SKU # is RF231823
. We generally always give you a link to a product, but we're noticing we've been getting a lot of questions from folks saying they can't find a particular product on the website......so we'll start trying to give your the SKU number too. And thanks to those of you who have asked....we appreciate the input! We're always looking for ways to make our website more user friendly and we sure want our tutorials to be the same. The RAZ Witch Legs are H3316409
and you purchase them by color, orange shoe or black shoe.
The Purple Cosmic Twist was cut into 15" lengths and just gathered up in one hand. The skirt on this little witch had about 18 pieces of Cosmic Twist I believe....I know we started out with about 9 pieces and added about 9 more to make it fuller. The Cosmic Twist product are very light and airy and perfect for Halloween creations. We've had it in stock in a 6" rolls and just recently added the 20" in several colors.
Signing off now.....just about ready to call it a day at Trendy Tree....be back tomorrow with more inspiration for your creativity)))
