Storage anyone?

I KNOW!  Just when you think this month couldn’t get ANY better, we are introducing STORAGE for your MFT sets!

Seriously.  Storage is an issue.  A big issue.  And one that’s not going to go away anytime soon.  First is was “where do I put all those wood mounted stamps?”.  With the introduction of polymer, that question was answered.  Then along came the Just Delightful Clear Stamps from MFT and the questions became “where do I put all these hundreds of MFT sets?”.

For those of you that don’t know, my hubby is a bit of a woodcrafter, and I can talk him into just about anything that involves the need for a new tool.

We’ve been trying to figure out a clever desktop storage unit for almost a year now.  It had to be cute.  First and foremost.  Something I would want on my desk.  It had to be functional and hold a serious lot of sets or it wouldn’t make sense.  And it has to allow me to be a lazy organizer.  I don’t wanna label and transfer things to cases, I really won’t make the time.  I wanna put my set in a bag and hang it up.  And then I wanna have all ny bags right at my fingertips so I can easily grab the set I want.  And it had to be cute.  Did I mention that already?  LOL!

Introducing the My Favorite Things Stamp Storage Carousel!

What isn’t able to be seen in the picture is the nifty spinner on the bottom of the unit that makes it super easy to spin.  I list that it will hold 80 sets, 40 on each side, but I’m able to get a few more on there.  I’ll let you know just how many when I get it loaded!  How I accomplish that is by 1) Adding more than one set per hang bag (and we will have extra hang bags and clips available as well) and adding more than one hang bag per clip.  The Carousel comes with a 25 pack of Clip It Up Clips, which are simply fabulous!  And their strong grip makes it a cinch to hold two or more bags on one clip.

How big is this bad girl?  Approx 10 3/4″ W x 11″ D x 15 1/2″ H.  It’s total desktop footprint is about 1 square foot.  Seriously.  1 single, solitary square foot. WOOT!

And I’ve saved the very best part for last…the price.  For $54.95 this baby can come home with you, and that INCLUDES US shipping!  (If you live outside the US, additional shipping will be charged, but any shipping overpayment will be refunded.)

Wanna know something else that’s fun?  I decided to make use of the sides of my Carousel as well and added some velcro dots to the bottom of my Adornments containers and mounted them to the sides of my Carousel!

I put the prickly side on my Carousel

I put the fuzzy side on my Adornments case (cause I didn’t want to scratch the furniture)

Then I mounted them.  I can fit between 6 and 9 Adornments cases on each side, so now my Glittered Garnishes, Baby Braddies, Buttons & Crystals are ALL at my fingertips too!

Now, can I get a WOOT, WOOT?  And…who ELSE is excited about being able to own it all tomorrow night?

Things to remember:

*The PARTY starts HERE at 8pm EST tomorrow night

*The Guest Designer Contest is HERE

*The new sets and products release Wed night at 10pm EST HERE

Teaser Day 1 – Basket Full o'Flopsey & Love Birds

With the New Year comes new and exciting additions to MFT, and this month we are celebrating some of these new additions in a BIG way!  We’ve got SO much to show off this month, things that have been in the works for many months, and I am beyond thrilled to share them with all of you.

First up, whatcha think of our new ad look???  I am in LOVE.  Head over heels LOVE.  You’ll notice our new “look” everywhere you go, but don’t fret, we’re still Not Your Mother’s Stamp Company! :)

Today we are teasing you with two new sets, Basket Full o’Flopsey & Love Birds.  Some of you have seen Love Birds since it was debuted in one of our Kits, but this months Flopsey set is brand spankin’ new and a MUST HAVE for sure!  He is SO stinkin’ sweet with all his goodies that can be placed expertly in his basket, and since he’s a bit smaller than our regular Flopsey sets he is perfect for quick projects and Easter Basket decorations.

As an aside, we are not offering a Kit this month.  We’re finding with as many new sets as we are offering lately with the new PI line (AND the NEW Illustrator this month!) it’s a bit overwhelming for you and us!

So who’s ready to check out the beginnings of the release eye candy?  MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

Here is your FABULOUS MFT Team line-up for today:

Happy hopping!  Any big Saturday plans for any of you?  I think I’ll be catching up on some online classes I missed while in CA and simply chillin’ with the family.  Perfect weather for a snuggle on the sofa, don’tcha think?

I know many of you saw some of the amazing creations on this months WTG VIP Hop, but there is SO much more ahead!

I love the options in Clearly Sentimental about Food.  Jody had much to do with the combinations and opotions in this set, and I can’t wait to show it off!

Clearly Sentimental about You has the most wonderful sentiments ever, and the only way you can own it in February is be “earning” it for FREE!  You can read all about our Triple Scoop Program HERE.  For 2010 we have kicked it up a notch by making the TSS completely new, unreleased sets so the perks are even better!
