Merry Christmas from Paper Wishes!!!

 

Merry Christmas Eve!

 

Traditionally, Christmas is when people slow down to take some time for themselves, to rejuvenate and enjoy their families. But here at Paper Wishes, things have barely slowed. In fact, they haven’t slowed. With a new catalog coming soon, preparations to be made for the Craft & Hobby Association Mega Show in January, and some other BIG plans in the works that I probably can’t reveal yet, everyone here (and most of all, Paulette) is going 110%.

For us, sharing the love of papercrafting, and striving to continually offer new, different and wonderful products is what drives us. It’s the passion that lies at the core of what we do every day. But despite the work, here is just some of the Christmas fun that we’ve had over the past month!

We have squeezed some great times into a very busy month! I’d like to thank Paulette, and all my co-workers who have helped bring Christmas magic to Paper Wishes this year. And most importantly, I want to thank all of our Paper Wishers for the incredible creativity and kindness you’ve shown! You truly are the very best part of Paper Wishes!

 

Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays!

It’s Tuesday again, and today we’re announcing the Week 2 Winner of our What’s Your Paper Wish? Facebook video giveaway!

Before revealing this week’s winner, I just want to tell you how fun it’s been to see your videos! It feels like I’m getting to meet some of our Paper Wishers, and seeing the enthusiasm and excitement, not just over the giveaway, but about papercrafting is really awesome! This creative passion is the common thread that runs through all of us, and it’s been really wonderful to watch your videos from all over the US and Canada! I’m hoping to meet even more of you during our final week, and I’d love to hear from our Paper Wishers in the UK, Australia and elsewhere!

To see our Week 2 Winner, watch the video below:

 

Congratulations!

Karen Phillips, you’re our winner!

Your Paper Wish for the Gelatos® Tropical Mixed Media Set & Pastel Chalk Set will be granted!

Visit our Facebook page for Karen’s video and details on how to enter!

 

Karen, we loved your video and all the projects you shared, and your deep appreciation for the Scor-Pal (it’s a favorite around here!) I’d also like to mention that Karen and I are not related. It seems we share the same maiden name—totally coincidental! There’s still one week left in our What’s Your Paper Wish? Facebook video giveaway, so visit us on Facebook and upload your video! It’s easy and you could have your Paper Wish granted! Plus, all who enter will win a prize!

I apologize for keeping this brief—we have less than 3 weeks until the January 2016 Paper Wishes® catalog comes out! So time for me to get back to work. I hope you’re all enjoying a wonderful holiday season! 🙂

What’s Your Paper Wish? Week 1 Winner Announced!

Oh. my. gosh. I just logged into the Paper Wishes Blog for the first time in over two weeks and it feels GREAT!

As many of you might be (painfully) aware, we’ve been experiencing some web troubles resulting from a system upgrade. This has caused big problems for people with logging in and ordering, and we are deeply sorry for the inconvenience. It’s been a frustrating couple of weeks, but our web team has been hard at work and things are close to being back to normal—phew!

Our system issues also had me locked out of the blog, which has been driving me a bit crazy. But finally yesterday, our web guys repaired the blog and I’m back in business—woohoo! And it’s just in the nick of time because I have a winner to announce!

Today we’re announcing our first week’s winner in our What’s Your Paper Wish? Facebook video giveaway! Watch the video below:
 

 

Congratulations!

Ruth Mickelson, you’re our winner!

Your Paper Wish for a $50 Paper Wishes® gift certificate will be granted!

 

Visit our Facebook page for Ruth’s video and details on how to enter!

 

There are still two weeks of our giveaway left, so visit us on Facebook and upload your video! It’s easy and you could have your Paper Wish granted! Don’t forget, all who enter will win a prize! Be sure to stay tuned… Over the next couple of weeks, I’ll be bringing you an inside look at Hot Off The Press’ newest papercraft collections (coming January 2nd!) and some great new project ideas! I hope you’re enjoying your holiday season, and thank you all again for the patience you’ve shown over the last two weeks!

It’s great to be back!
