The St. Nicholas chair was so fun to make.  The mini album fits inside the seat.

Hello Peddler's Pack Fans!

I hope you are enjoying your summer and finding ways to keep cool!   I find that being semi-retired, it's hard to keep the days straight!  And there's just not enough hours in the day to accomplish all that I want to do!  

We attended a surprise 40th Birthday party for our very good friend Dave who owns The Fireside Bar & Grill and The Westgate Restaurant in Beaverton. A gala event in the Roaring 20's style.  Everyone dressed for the occasion and it was such fun!  Pictured below is Bernie and me  in our attire. The venue was at the Heart of Rock Farm in Sherwood which offers a unique collection of wedding and event-related services.








 Fall is just around the corner and for many of us, it's our favorite time of year.  So this month's Kit 3 features two fall cards.  



The kit includes the leaf and scarecrow stamps mounted on cling foam, card stock for four cards, ribbon, metal nail heads, pumpkins die cut, envelopes and envelope seals.  T…

It's Bees and Butterfliesfor this month's card kit!

Hello Everyone!  I hope you are enjoying your summer.  I was inspired by all of the bees and butterflies we have in our backyard to make the above two cards for this month's card kit. (We have birds and dragonflies too!)

So here it is, "Must be Monday" bees hanging their laundry and a Butterfly House.  These cards could work for many different occasions.  The cards are blank inside for you to use your own sentiments.

The kit comes with everything you need to make 2 cards of each design (4 total) and includes the two Peddler's Pack stamps on cling foam.

You will need adhesives,  an acrylic block and black ink  for stamping and your chosen coloring medium.  I used Copic markers for the two samples.  You could also add glitter onto
the butterfly wings, bee's wings and flower centers.

Here's a closer look!  To order, please send a check for $21.95 made out to The Peddler's Pack, and mailed to PO Box 767, B…

We planted a vegetable garden this year, so along with our herbs we'll be able to enjoy some great meals.  Bernie loves to garden and has the yard looking really pretty with lots of colorful blooms as well.  He takes fresh bouquets to friends every week!  

I've been busy doing some designing for Stampendous which I will share once the images are released.  

We are continuing to sell our stamp line from our web site and trying to update that as well.
We sell both retail and wholesale.

We are continuing to help Camelia in Lebanon establish her new stamp store.  She's done a 
great job with the shop...it looks like a miniature Peddler's Pack!

Lebanon has a Strawberry Festival May 31st thru June 3rd. Lots of fun activities are planned, 
so you might want to check it out.  Camelia's and Strawberries...two good reasons to visit
Lebanon!

Have a safe and fun Memorial Day weekend.

Gazebo in our backyard.
If you like flea markets, Packwood, Washington has a great one over the Memorial …
