i just ordered one of these for my husband for valentine's day with a quote from our wedding vows. how incredibly cute! and it's miniature!!! who doesn't love miniatures?
if you are interested in getting one for your sweetheart, i would suggest ordering soon... i am sure they are getting lots of requests!


in the spirit of CHA (and since there is no way i'll ever be able to go to one), i wanted to share a couple links to those who read this blog... gauche alchemy has compiled two lists of links to giveaways and new releases on their blog and i wanted to get these out to all who are interested.
if you go here and here, you will find some links to manufacturers who are having giveaways and releases of new products.
also, serendipity scrapbooks has a great directory going on here on their message board of sneak peeks of new lines by many different manufacturers.

also, feel free to leave a comment with your favorite manufacturers and their new lines. this is all so exciting!
