Hi! My name is Alishia and I am a KraftaholicMommy!
Thank you all for being so understanding the last few days. I am happy to say that I am at least writing and creating. I cannot wait to show you some new products that I have picked up over the weekend.
I would like to start today off with talking about a new find for me. There was a company that I have been following for inspiration for awhile now, My Favorite Things, is their name. I told my husband that I absolutely love their designs for stamps and die cuts, and I was going to order from them soon. I was on their instagram page and discovered they are only about forty-five minutes from my house and they have a boutique that you can physically shop at. I’m pretty sure you can guess what happened next.
So, I show up to 132 E Magnolia Ave in Eustis, Florida. Let me begin by saying that I absolutely love this part of Eustis. This storefront is absolutely adorable and inviting. I adored walking in to see cards for inspiration all of the place. This floor plan was open and roomy. You weren’t overwhelmed with too many products in small spaces. I was greeted with a smile and a very friendly hello. I turned to my left at the door to discover the most amazing paper!!! What made this even more amazing was the coordinating ink was right on the shelf above the paper. I love, love, LOVE how easy it is to just come in and grab the ink and paper you need. From there, I was able to look at the amazing accessories they have for ink. They had their amazing ink dobbers, specialty inks, and so much more. I walked up from that beautiful display, to find myself in the stamp and die-namics section. I particularly loved that they had their stamps on the shelf right next to their beautiful coordinating die-namics. This makes it easy to pick up an amazing stamp set and get the die-namics to cut those beautiful images out. They also surprised me with selling discounted stamp pads and other miscellaneous products. It is a small clearance rack, stuff that has been used in their beautiful classroom that is open to the sales floor. This is nice for people who have never used their products before. They are able to buy discounted products and try them out. As you walk around, back to the front of the store, you are greeted with some other amazing products. I found Copic markers. I picked up two Copic Sketch markers to test them out. As I have never used this brand before, I did not want to pick up too many, even though, I literally wanted all of those beautiful colors!!!! I picked up quite a few products to test out and see how I like them. Below is a bit of a haul list.
My Favorite Things Extreme Black (I also jumped on getting a refill)
My Favorite Things Premium Dye Sour Apple
My Favorite Things Premium Dye Persimmon
My Favorite Things Premium Dye Cement Gray

Thanks and Hello
If you spend $60, you receive a couple of awesome free items. I spent over $60 and I received 4×4 Happy Hello Stamp Set and a words Die-Namics “Sunshine.”
I love these products! The ink covers the stamps beautifully. The colors are perfect! I love my Die-Namics, the font of the words are perfect for fun cards. The awesome part of this shopping experience was the absolutely adorable bag that all of these wonderful craft supplies were put in. I love this bag and it is definitely my new church bag for my Bible and notepads. I will definitely be making a new awesome notepad cover for church, using my beautiful Blue Raspberry paper!! The cardstock is nice, smooth, and thick. I am so excited to have these products!!!
When you shop at this store, you have the opportunity to earn points. When you get 100 points, you receive $50 of store credit! How many places can you name that sell high quality crafting products, offer that? This is amazing. I earned 15 points and I am already planning another shopping trip in the next couple of weeks. I have a list about ten miles long and I am just itching to get back into the store. I received an email from My Favorite Things that made me fall in love with this company even more. For the month of June, My Favorite Things released an adorable ocean themed stamp set and die-namics set, called Beach and Buds. This set is absolutely adorable and I will be buying this stamp set in my next trip. For the entire month of June, 10% of retail sales for this stamp and die-namics set will be donated to The Ocean Foundation. This organization lives and breathes ocean preservation. This is an amazing group and it is truly exciting to see all of the good that they do. It is also a very sweet thing for My Favorite Things to do for such a noble cause.
The other thing that makes me very happy about this company, everything is made in America. They pull, pack, and ship out of their store. The staff are very friendly and they truly love the products they sell. They are also extremely proud of the classes that they offer for stampers. It is a beautiful thing to see a group of people, just as passionate about paper crafting as I am.
Thank you to My Favorite Things for having such a beautiful and amazing shop. Thank you for showing such sweet hospitality and for being so dang friendly.
I truly hope you visit, mftstamps.com this company is absolutely amazing and they give to truly amazing causes!
