While Krissi and Ron were away on their semi-working trip / vacation, they stopped into the rubber stamp store called "Paws on Main" in Cambria, CA (famous for its location just south of Hearst Castle and for being the town where Arachnaphobia was filmed). Krissi came home with quite a few new stampy goodies and replenished her almost-empty Stickles in "Orange Peel" while she was at it.
While Krissi was all deer-in-the-headlights at the stamps, inks and other good stuff, Ron, as usual, was talking me up to the owner of the store. Karen (that's the owner) immediately got excited upon hearing that rubber stamps of a retro-ish Day of the Dead kitty cat (1) actually existed and (2) could be ordered wholesale for her shop. About 2 days later, I received an e-mail from Lee at Stampa Fe telling me that she was packing up an order to go out to Paws on Main! WOO HOO!
So, if you're on California's central coast, stop by Cambria and tell Karen at Paws on Main howdy (she's super nice) and help keep this kitty in skele-kibble by getting yourself AT LEAST one of those rubber stamps, would ya?
All of the above goes DOUBLE for Cyndi of Santa Clarita Craft Lab who was the very first small business to carry my stamps.
