PS FEB Newsletter

Hello friends.
We didn't clearance any Paper Smooches products in 2019. With over 800 products, it's time again to try and "clean house". I chose 40 stamps and dies that I will be retiring over the next 4 months. I will announce these special items on our newsletter that I send out on the 22nd of each month and here on this blog. The discontinued products will be moved to our clearance page and marked at 50% off retail price. I'd act fast because once they are gone - they are gone :)

Here is the first batch of discontinued products:

Fringe Die
Frame 1 Die
Birthday Sampler Stamps
Think Fast Stamps
Green Thumb Stamps
Party Posse
Fruitastic stamps and coordinating dies
Kitschy Kitchen stamps and coordinating dies
Sugar Rush stamps and coordinating dies
Digits stamps and coordinating dies

Ants have designated paramedics that are assigned to rescue their wounded soldiers, carry them back to their nest and help them heal by gently holding the hurt limb in place with their mandibles and front legs while intensely “licking” the wound for up to 4 minutes.

A beard transplant procedure takes an entire day, and can run up to $10,000 for a full beard. The doctor and technicians remove hair strands with the follicles intact from another part of the body — usually the bottom of the back of the head. It’s moved to where it is wanted on the face

While being mad about having to work on New Years Day, children’s TV host Soupy Sales, during one of his programs, asked children to send him the “funny green pieces of paper with pictures of U.S. Presidents” from their parent’s wallets and purses. He received thousands of dollars in the mail and was suspended for two weeks.

The miniskirt is named after the Mini Cooper and not the skirt’s size. The designer, Mary Quant loved Mini Cooper cars and named the garment after them, saying that car and skirt were both “optimistic, exuberant, young, flirty,” and complemented each other.
