Holiday Season

The Holiday Season is upon us.  I've been busy trying to get all my shopping done before the end of November so I can avoid all malls and stores in December.   I used to love shopping over the holidays, but I think as I get older, I just don't have the energy for it anymore.   However I do like looking at all the wonderful Christmas decorations, but my husband has told me I'm not allowed to buy any more.  He thinks my 5 extra large rubbermaid totes and the other various bags and boxes filled with Christmas decorations is enough!  He's such a scrooge!

To ring in the holiday season, we will be having an Open House at our in-store location on Saturday, December 8th from 10am - 5pm.  Be sure to stop by for a sweet treat and also receive a gift with purchase.

What's New!
 We have some of the Tim Holtz Christmas dies and embossing folders in stock, but they are disappearing fast! 

Just in time for winter, we also have a couple of BoBunny winter lines available:

Coming Soon!
Are you as big a fan of Vicki Boutin as I am?  She will have some of her kits available soon and you will only be able to get them at the Nook, so stay tuned!  If you are on Facebook, be sure to 'like' the Nook to find out when they become available.  Not on Facebook?  No worries, we'll send out an email as well. :-)

Fall Colours!!

Fall Colours!

Fall is definitely in full swing here in Southern Ontario.   
I know parts of Canada have seen the fall colours come and go, but we are still enjoying the changing colours.   
I really need to go for a drive and take some pictures!  
I love this time of year!

Of course, Halloween is almost here.  Do you have a lot of kids that come to your door?  When we moved here 10 years ago, I ran out of candy the first year -- I had enough for 80 kids.  So the next year I bought more.  After a few years, that was too much.  Now we get maybe 30 - 40, if that.   I guess the neighbourhood is getting older.  It's too bad.  I enjoy seeing all the kids with their costumes.

With fall here and the winter just around the corner, we also find ourselves having hot drinks like hot tea or hot chocolate to warm us up!   If any of you watch Dragon's Den, you may have seen the couple in the season opener who have the Steeped Tea business.  All of the Dragons were very impressed with them and their products.  

A couple of friends have started a new adventure by becoming Steeped Tea consultants.   I ordered several of the teas and they are FANTASTIC!  So much so, that I decided I would host an online Catalogue Party.

If you love tea, you will love all the amazing flavours of tea -- black tea, green tea and lattes -- that Steeped Tea offers.   They have a few flavours of Hot Chocolate as well.   It doesn't stop there!  They have an awesome selection of savoury foods too!  Check out the catalogue by clicking the link below.  The catalogue party ends this Sunday, October 21st.  All orders can be shipped directly to you.

New Nook News from Janice - September 19th


I had my first hot chocolate of the season today! It was a little chilly in the house today, but way to early to be turning on the furnace!  That would mean the end of summer and I'm not ready for that!!!  

How do you like your hot chocolate?   We have a Tassimo, but I don't like the hot chocolates that you can get with it-- I like mine made with milk and a little whipped cream to top it off.  Can't get all that with a Tassimo!  However, when I'm looking for a nice cup of Earl Grey tea or a Chai Latte, I LOVE my Tassimo! 

Well -- time to move on.  Have to go watch the season premier of Survivor tonight! ;-) 

What's New!

Just when I think I've made room for everything, more product comes in and I get to shuffle everything around again!  :-)   

If you like anything Tim Holtz, you'll love these new Idea-Ology products:


With school back in full swing, now is the time to scrapbook those 'First Day of School' pictures using Little Yellow Bicycle's Making the Grade  line of products.
