1 Do you ever wonder what it is like to work in a scrapbook store? In short...I love it! But today I wanted to share one of the moments that I often experience while spending my days at Scrap & Bean. We frequently have crafters stop in from out of town. I often hear this said "I don't have a craft store where I live." While I am glad they found Scrap & Bean it also makes me a little sad to imagine living where I would not have a local craft store to go to for inspiration, for classes, or just to meet up with other crafters.
Today a crafter drove many hours to shop at Scrap & Bean, along with her very patient husband. Sadly, I was told that her local stores have come and gone. Also today, I had the fun of meeting another crafter from 3 hours away. She had driven all the way here to pick up supplies for herself, and her mom too! What a great daughter! The purpose of my sharing is to express how fortunate we are to have a city full of avid paper crafters! It is the local crafters that support the local stores, that keep our doors open. For each of you....I am thankful! So thankful for each crafter that visits, shares, keeps our enthusiasm going, and enables us to keep our doors open. We realize we are here because of you! If you live far away from us, of coarse we do ship. And we love our distance customers too. Yes we do! However, I strongly believe that if there is a craft store in your town, support it. If you don't, they may not always be able to be there for you. With thankful heart, tonight I send out hugs to all of you crafters that support us. As today I was reminded again (twice) that so many stores in so many towns have not had the local support they needed to remain open. Feeling so thankful for you, yes you. For you are the one that allows all of us at Scrap & Bean to do what we love, and keep sharing it with you. Huge thanks! ~ Kathy

This is a reusable cleaning cloth. No special cleaning solution is needed. Just add water to thoroughly hydrate the cloth, then wipe your stamps for a perfect clean. Care instructions: The shammy will dry out between uses, as well as get "inky" over time. Don't worry! Just add water to re-hydrate the cloth, and it will continue to clean your stamps again and again, even if stained.
Happy Crafting!
