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 …

It's been wonderful to have the time to create now that I'm semi-retired!  Below are some cards I made last week for Camelia's shop in Lebanon.  We were there Friday and the store looks great! I used Nuvo Crystal drops on these cards...they look like real pearls!  You can also use Liquid Pearls by Ranger.  After I took these photos, I added a chain and a hanging heart locket on the purple purse.  All of these Peddler's Pack images are available on our web site.
One of my former employees (Carla) who used to work for us in the first location on Allen Blvd. came in the shop while we were there.  She used to live in Rainier and now in Sweet Home. Her husband is building her a brand new studio and it is fabulous!  It was so good to see her...it's been years!  










I'll be at Whimzee's in Beaverton this Friday, May 11th to teach a card class. We'll be coloring with Prisma pencils and the cards will feature an Iris. Please call Whimzee's to register.  2 classes…

The Stamp Peddler's Journey

Greetings Peddler's Pack fans from Joyce.  It's been 7 weeks
 since we closed our retail storefront, and after 33 1/2 years, I am enjoying my new flexible hours even though I am keeping very busy in the stamping community with teaching classes and helping a new stamp store owner in Lebanon, Oregon learn the business!

Thank you all for the wonderful cards, flowers, chocolates and gifts; I will cherish the memories forever...you are all the best and so much appreciated.

I really enjoyed the business and all of our wonderful customers.  It's a bittersweet deal...no more storefront...but I
will keep in touch with all of you through this blog and our Constant Contact newsletter and I do plan to stay active in the paper crafting community.  We are working on improving our web site as well. peddlerspack.com

March 10, 2018 Our last day at The Peddler's Pack Store
One of the challenging things about running a storefront, you don't always have the time to create cards!  I made many …
