Hello, ‘Fetti Fans!
This is probably one of the most fun posts that I have gotten to write since the start of Reverse Confetti!
I’m so glad that I get to shout all these fun things (6 of them!) from the rooftops…I wasn’t going to be able to keep these secrets much longer! Yes, there are some details and that are still forthcoming, but I had to fill you in on what I know NOW! Alright, here it goes, in no particular order because I couldn’t decide what to put first…
We have signed a lease for warehouse space and we will also have a dedicated classroom at our new location! The building is still under construction and we don’t move in until August, but this is HUGE for us! In fact, the space itself is so BIG that we’re going to have to fill it with even more Reverse Confetti productS. Yep, that’s a capital “S” you see! There will be more on that on the weeks and months to come, but let me just say that GREAT THINGS are coming!
Once we get settled in we will have more information about the classroom space… and local order pick-ups, too!
It’s a bit of a construction zone, but I did want to share some of the pics that I have of the new space. I hope to share more as the space comes along!
Since the physical hub of Reverse Confetti isn’t accessible to all of the ‘Fetti Fans worldwide, we have a created a virtual hub for all of the ‘Fetti Fans to share their projects, ideas and connect with each other. Head on over to our ‘Fetti Fans Facebook group today (invite your friends, too)!

We *just* signed up to exhibit at the Dallas Pinners Conference & Expo. This will be our first tradeshow (I know, I can’t believe it either) and we are EXCITED! The Pinners Conference is September 9-10 here in the DFW area…the Arlington Convention Center to be exact. If you are able to come to the conference, be sure to stop by and give me a hug, do a fun make ‘n take and shop!
(we actually announced this yesterday on our Facebook page)
Speaking of make ‘n takes, we will be doing one at the Great American Scrapbook Convention this weekend (also at the Arlington Convention Center) in The Little Blue House booth (our local store that we love & adore) . Susan Liles will be doing one on Thursday from 9-12 and I will be doing (a different) one on Saturday, also from 9-12. We hope to see you there!
There is NO RELEASE in July! Don’t worry, we aren’t exactly taking the month of July “off,” but we will not be releasing new product in July. As you may have gathered, we are working on LOTS of behind the scenes stuff. I’ll be happy to get a little more time with the kiddos as well, and making summertime memories they’ll never forget.
Note, August will be a bit of a double release as we had to shift what we had planned for July into August, too. I have a feeling that you are just going to LOVE it ALL! As always, the Countdown to Confetti will start on the 5th.
Last, but certainly not least, I would like to introduce you to our newest Confetti Crew design team member…
A little about Jeanne in her own words:
Hi! I’m Jeanne Jachna. I’m a married, stay at home mom of two young adults, and one very active Akita puppy. I live in Northwest Indiana near Chicago. I like to read, garden, and cook, but I have been completely captivated by paper crafting. I can’t resist a new set of stamps, bling, big bows and colorful paper. I love to layer on lots of die cuts and mix different patterned papers together. My time crafting is a sweet escape and a fun way to express myself. I started my blog, A Kept Life, in 2011. It’s been so fun to express myself through crafting, and I’m blessed with the many friends I’ve made who share my paper crafting obsession. I’m so excited to share my creations with you!
