When Something Old Circles Back to New

When I took my first walk through the new 2021-2022 Annual Catalog I was awed and amazed at all the fun things I would get to play with for the next year, and was over the moon excited to see a new product that appears to be an old friend returning! What is this product? Soft Pastels! Yes!!!!

These amazing chalks are like old friends you run into in the mall and are actually HAPPY to see! They are a great addition to your stamping supplies because of their versatility and ease of use. I’m really channeling my Girl Scout days here and will happily embed an ear worm in your ear…”Make new friends, but keep the old; one is silver and the other gold.” Everybody sing!
