Spellbinders Was Busy While I Was Hiking . . .

I went off the grid about 5:00 Friday afternoon – went home, walked to the high school, announced the football game, walked back home, got a few hours’ sleep, and headed for the Grand Canyon.  For the first time in many years, I literally did not think about work once for nearly four days . . . until I got to the Phoenix airport late Tuesday morning and checked my e-mail for the first time.

The first two e-mails I read wanted to know why the new Spellbinders dies weren’t on our website yet.

My initial reaction was “What new Spellbinders dies?”  I usually get an advance notice with graphics and descriptions and such – and I get them ready in advance so I can make them visible on our website at the exact second they are released, no matter where I am (except maybe at the bottom of the Grand Canyon).  But I didn’t get an advance notice this time, so thanks to the loyal customers who were kind enough to ask instead of shopping elsewhere.

When I got to Denver and discovered that our flight to Cincinnati was going to be delayed at least two hours (ended up being four), I assumed that it was time to figure out if I could add new items to our site from my iPad.  It was possible, but it will be easier next time.

So with no further delay . . .

S2-036 S2-038 S2-040
S2-041 S2-058 S3-208

These are all D-Lites dies – the first five are from the S2 series with an MSRP of $12.99 (our price as always is 20% off the MSRP).  The last one is from the S3 series with an MSRP of $17.99.  Spellbinders says they’re ready to ship them to dealers like us, so we should have them by the end of next week.  For more details and/or to place an order, simply click on any of the graphics above.

And once my brother and I are able to organize the pictures we took, I’ll be back in a few days to regale you with tales from the Grand Canyon – tales of moisture, mud, mammals, and (sore) muscles . . .

I cannot put a post on this blog on this date without pausing to remember the men and women who lost their lives in cowardly acts of terrorism twelve years ago – and the police, fire and military who risk theirs daily to protect us.  Thanks.

  1. Amazing hike, would love to see pics if you have any from your hike. And am glad you made a safe return from your extreme hike. Great new dies, I will be back soon to shop, also just discovered the metallic pan pastels. Yum on those.
