Wow! I was going through serious simple dreams withdrawals while you were away - WELCOME BACK! I am really looking forward to the new product (I've been using my BIA to punch through EVERYTHING!). I've learned so much from your blog(s) and I've even recently picked up a soldering iron...looking forward to all the new info you'll be sharing in the months ahead.

Phyllis Bolman

Thanks for shaing so much with us! I am looking forward to what you will come up with next!

Lacey Stephens

It took me a few times, but I finally read the whole post!! I can't wait to find out more about this new special product. It is like a large "coaster"?! The waiting is going to kill me!!

Thank you for sharing your excitement and enthusiastic conversation! I feel like we have just had a long chat and WOW, what wonderful new things are coming! How fun to be in the craft industry! Looking forward to so many new things!

Tracy Durcan

Wow!! Looks great to me!! Looking forward to hearing more :)


I read from beginning to end, and now I am intrigued. This new board material - is it paper? Plastic? Flexible or rigid? I would love to learn more. :-)

Ellen: I read through your post two times...but I am a concrete thinker and although I understood what you said (literally) I am/was lost as to what you hinted at. Go figure. I guess I will have to be one of the ones who will wait for the trends and follow them when they get here. But your post was enjoyable as I could feel your joy and pleasure at being involved in the crafting industry. Thank you.

Ellen, you are truly a kind and caring person! I did read right through..didn't scroll down right away!!! your new product is making my brain go off into 20 directions thinking of what I'll do with it.
Thanks Jeanette


Ellen, thank you for sharing your thoughts with us. I think that's why I love supporting your shop- you're so creative, down to earth, and just plain HONEST. Seems like honesty is missing in a lot of things these days, especially business.

I love that you're always on the look-out for new products. Can't wait to get my hands on this new "board" material to use with my nesties. Yay!

Teresa Case

Ellen, I always enjoy your post from begining to end! Today was no other. I appreciate the special place friend fill in our lifes. It was also refreshing to hear that there are so many educational venues at CHF...I hope to attend someday. I am so pleased with the new product you are introducing. My sis and I have wanted something like this; I hate buying something I can make just the shape I want with the nestabilities. I'll be watching the store. Thanks

LuAnn Mooney

How fun to read about your CHA experience and learn more about new products. I have often wished there was something else out there that was thinner than chipboard, so I look forward to getting some of the new board. Can't wait to get my hands on the new piercabilities...Thanks for the inspiration and all your energy for papercraft and cardmaking!


I read everything, and I totally agree with not stepping on toes and respecting others trying to make a living. I am very excited about this new product. I use my nesties on almost every card I make and new ways to use them is a very exciting prospect. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your generousity of spirit.


I read it all and you make me tired, girl! No wonder you messed up on the alarm, you needed it!
Can't wait to see pics and new stuff!

Viv (VivLyn)

Ellen, that was a great post! I read it all and you truly impress me! Can't wait to get my hands on this *new* product!!

Becky Olsen

Whew, what a post!
You gave me giggles and goosebumps all in one package girlie, and thanks for the button and thread!
The poeple will definitely find a place in a project, and when it does I will send a pic ;o)
Can't see you soon enough roomie!

Sandra Bonagura

Yes Ellen you are right, this is exciting news - It would be so much fun to have a thicker object that the nestabilities can be used on - the mind is spinning!
Thanks for sharing!

Julie (Joypup on SCS)

Ellen, Thanks so much for sharing your personal stories of CHA and your invaluable advice for folks wanting to learn and make this a real livelihood -- I appreciate that you share information in the appropriate times and spaces, and I am excited that you are bringing more great products to market! I hope to get some of that new material soon -- hopefully it will be in stores so we can feel and see it before we jump in and buy ;^)* Big kudos to you for all you do and bring to the world! Thanks for doing it!

Hi Ellen!
I read through all the creative drivel and personal anecdotes first :) It was you who first inspired me to dig deeper into this whole process of stamping. Your post on SCS about "Design Elements & Principles", way back before you even had the store, was the beginning of the answers I had been looking for. It's so fun to share your excitement. Your bouncing is contagious!

Tami McBeain (tmarie)

I enjoyed reading your entire post, and I love the respect you have for the crafting industry. I am excited to see what the next few months bring and can't wait to see your new product!

Deb Neerman

Woohoo, a new product!! Looks sooo interesting and I can't wait to see and hear more about this!

I read your whole post too, Ellen ... you're one of my favorite "reads!"

Thanks so much for all the info you shared about designing, learning, and CHA. I'm seriously taking to heart your suggestion to attend CHA as a designer; I had no idea that was even possible!

Thanks sooooo much, Ellen!



Okay, so I didn’t read your entire post before leaving my first comment. I saw that great little album, and started typing. Then I read the rest of the post…
Ellen, besides all my previous comments, I feel compelled to leave a few more thoughts. You must be one of the most caring, honest, and loyal women I have ever had the privilege to “know”. You are respectful, kind, and devoted – rare qualities in today’s world. We have never met, but from reading your blogs (and the comments of those privileged to be your friends), I know that we could be friends. If there were more people like you, the world would be a much better place.
You are so right about Beth – she is a sweetheart. I have written to CS many times and always receive a speedy, precise answer delivered in Beth’s unique chatty manner. She makes me (and I’m sure every customer) feel like a friend - and that no question is too small or too silly. We have ‘talked’ so much that she is one of my good e-friends. I’ve had no personal experience with your other assistants, but I’m sure they are just as wonderful. You are fortunate to be surrounded by so many great women.
Thank you for being you,

Colleen in NH

R-E-S-P-E-C-T. You've certainly got mine! Thank you so much for us so much to look forward to!
Now to make my want, gonna die if I don't get this list!


You never cease to amaze me! You are forever having these great ideas; figuring out how to create them IRL; finding or producing the supplies needed; then making them available along with a fabulous tutorial to enable all of us to make a reasonable facsimile.
Thank you, thank you, thank you - from the bottom of my heart - thank you.
