A Final Note from Daisy

Dear eP Nation,

Five years ago, Joy and I had this crazy idea to open an online store together. Back then, it was pretty rare for two people to just do that. We were at our monthly Stampin' Up! demo meeting and I remember sitting at our upline's kitchen table taking about all things swaps, Splitcoaststampers, new stamps & papers. With the magic of the internet, we opened a new online store for paper crafters who liked the same things we did. 

And so began my five year whirlwind journey with eclectic Paperie(eP) and, more importantly, you, its customers. I've really come to love eP and everything about it. I've had so much fun and made many life-long friends. I've learned a lot about the paper crafting industry and picked up new techniques(and supplies). I'm sad that this will be my last newsletter. 

There is nothing to sell today, just a deep and heartfelt "THANK YOU", from the very bottom of my heart. 

Thank you to the vendors and bloggers that inspired us and fed our creativity. Thank you to the amazing eP Blog Team (aka The E-Team) for blowing my mind on a regular basis. Most importantly, thank you to all the customers for your patronage and support. 

The good news is that neither I nor eP are going away. eP has a new owner with some pretty fantastic ideas about where the store goes next. The next newsletter will be from the new owner and she will tell you all about it. You are going to love it.

I'm not going anywhere either. Instead of shipping your packages, I'm going to be writing and creating a lot more. Please go bookmark my new ventures, MrsMacSparky.com and CraftEConnection.com

At CraftEConnection I've got some great ideas from which I intend to revolutionize craft publishing. At MrsMacSparky, I'm going to write about my own crafts, using technology, and my love of all things Disney. I think both of these sites will be well worth your time.

Signing off on the eclectic Expose for the very last time with very much love and gratitude.

eclectic Paperie is Moving!


I am happy to announce that eclectic Paperie has a new owner. Before we make the big reveal, there is some housekeeping to be done. We will be making an official announcement in early August. 

There are items that simply cannot move to eP's new location so they have to find new homes to live in. How about yours? Dave has created 2 epic deals for you as we prepare to box up the store and send it to a new owner. 
  • Dave's Colossal Grab Box 
    These boxes contain over $300 worth of product. They are packed with tools, stamps, embellishments and some products that never made it onto the site. Paper Craft goodies to begin some holiday crafts or to put away as gifts. You will be guaranteed a new i-Rock Tool plus a big TenSeconds Studio bundle with tools valued at about $140 retail.
    You will also receive 20 or more Nestabling packs plus several Nestaboard packages. Dave also found some Prima flowers, punches and more embellishments, too.

  • Dave's Copic Marker Grab Box (20 markers) 
    The new eP will only carry Copic Markers in Sketch style. So, that means we've got to move all remaining Copic CIAO and ORIGINAL markers out. It is easier to just bundle them in sets of 20 and offer them to you at a a great value. You'll receive 18 CIAO and 2 ORIGINAL Copic Markers. SInce this is a grab box, colors may vary from each grab bag. You may also receive some other surprises in this Copic Marker grab box. 

  • Maya Road, Ranger, Tim Holtz idea-ology, Graphic 45 and more items at 50% or more. You can go to this sale section where we are moving lots fo products in the next several days and marking them at 50% or more off the retail price. 

The new owner is very excited about this transition and is making plans to share a new chapter for eclectic Paperie. You are all going to love it!

Happy Shopping,
"feed your creativity" at eclectic Paperie

    Best wishes to you in your new adventure. Sad to see the E-team and blog hops end, but I have gained so much inspiration from them. I've loved their diversity and creativity.

    Oh... I was supposed to tell you what I liked most I so enjoyed the versatility and creativeness of the E-Team! The projects inspired me and "sparked" some new artistic expression in me!
