Hi Everyone
Well here we are,
 45% off everything!
The last week of the going out of business sale already, wow.
It really hit me on Saturday when I walked in the store, the finallity of it all. How fast the last
few weeks have gone by and how fast this week will go by....and then *poof* it's over, done.

One more time I want to give my sincere thanks for your support over the years,
the wonderful emails, and taking the time to just come in and say
"good bye" or "I'll be seeing ya!" You really have softened the hard decision I had to make.
I will hold all of you in my heart.....

It's hard to say goodbye...

Seven years ago I had a dream to open my own papercrafting store,
I wanted to share my passion with everyone.

Six years ago I had the opportunity and the courage to do so. Over the years I
have put my heart, countless hours, effort and time away from my family to make
paperMuse what everybody has come to love.

So it is with a heavy heart that I now have to tell you that I have to close the store.

For the hundreds of you who have supported me through the years with your hard earned money I want to express my sincere gratitude.  Thank you. Thank you for patronage, support, kind words, and friendship.
I have met so many wonderful people, and made some really great friends.

I have no regrets, nothing I would do different.

Given the financial opportunity and a stable economy I would do it again.

This was of course a very difficult decision one that I had been contemplatingfor months, but was due to the failing economy, many people no longer having the disposable income to fund their passion,
and the inability to fund the store with our personal money anymore.

I always had hope that things would turn around. But sadly time, money, and hope ran out.
So here is how this will work......starting the the week of the 11th all items will be 25% off, the next week will be 35%, the next 45%....and if there is still some stuff left 50% off the next week.

All of my fixtures are for sale and will not be included in the % off sales.All sales of course will be final. No returns, exchanges or refunds will be given.

    If you have purchased a gift certificate for someone please remind them to get in and use it, if you are holding one please come in and use it!

Gift certificates as always are not redeemable for cash.

I will have an Etsy store with some of my most treasured supply items, I will send out an email and post on my blog/facebook when it is up and running.

I just want to give my thanks again for your support, I will miss you all.

I hope to see you if not for anything else but just to

say thank you and good bye in person.

Clippings from BG

Its almost time to go back to schooooool ..ha..ha...ha...ha....ha... haaaaaaah!  ( This is me singing by the way)  Yes it is!  Bittersweet , I know, but we'll get over it as soon as we are sitting with our favorite beverage and MAKIN' STUFF!  So I think that's where this alpha paper from Basic Grey comes in...I have a couple things swimming around in my head for this.....
....names on folders, book covers, dividers, frame it, put it on canvas, monogram cards, envelopes, paper  airplanes..(saw a design for the silhouette for that)  great backround for school pics.  I have only 2 of the 12x12's for this line and then what is shown in the pic.

Kusudama Flower Crazay!

For one thing I cannot believe that I didn't even know how to make this flower when I first noticed it last Christmas in the store next to mine.  It was an ornament for the tree.  Then I went to a baby shower and it was the center pieces on all the tables.  Then I go to Etsy and it is ALL OVER in there.  But what the HECK is it called!  After searching relentlessly I finally find it.  Kusudama Flower!  Unbelievable.  Origami.  Of course.  Apparently I have the only origami book in all the land that did not have this in it.  So any how, .....after making one petal I couldn't stop. I have been making them for weeks!  WEEKS I tell you!  Addicting?, yeah. I have indents in my thumbnails from all the folding.  Now I was going to post a whole bunch of pics showing you how to do it, but I am having some technical difficulty (surprise, surprise) uploading my photos.  I used an old dictionary for my paper, and cut it in 3in. x 3in. squares. So here is the website that I learned from  they have LOTS of direction on there.  To make the ball as shown you will need 70 squares of paper.  Each flower has 5 petals. and I glued the flowers into groups of three.  When done making your groups you should have 4 clusters.  Now all you have to do is is piece them together and then add a ribbon for hanging and maybe some sort of embellishment for the flower centers.   
  Happy Folding!

every love story IS beautiful...

So at Christmas time I had this little clock that accidentally got knocked of the wall and broke...awww......
and apologies were flowing....but I was not having it...."don't feel bad AT ALL" i said....
" perfect opportunity to make something else out of it!"  of course I had no idea what, it was going to be a collage of some kind....until I saw this......on Rhonna's blog......

Source: via Rhonna on Pinterest


so after many different trials.... here is what I did.....

and the inside......

Saturday, February 4, 2012


So the idea for this card came
 from my friend Jen's blog.
 She decorated a heart for her little miss.

My wheels started turning.....and this is what I did....

So simply pretty.
             Alot of you may say..."Wow,  that is a lot of pink for you Camie!" 
 I know, I can't explain it..I'm usually such a red girl...
but I have been REALLY attracted to it lately.
  Made with Glitz Design Beautiful Dreamer Stripe 
paper for the backround and the xoxo which was cut from my 
silhouette and the design is from House of 3. The heart was outlined with the gorgeous
 pleat ribbon in the beige...a little pink seam binding.... and a couple pearls 
and of course...had to add a little bit of music fringe and......
WHALA!  La, La.
