Lots of the fall dies and embossing folders from the Tim Holtz Line of the Sizzix dies, etc are here now. Samples are in process.


  1. Dear Kate,

    We met about a year ago when I moved to Topsfield after journeying with my mom through terminal illness. I came into your shop initially because I wanted to finish a scrapbook in her memory. The grief process kept me from completing this project, but I appreciated having a store like yours in my new town and sent you a "Thankful for You" card last Thanksgiving.

    This year has been a year of recovery and renewal. I have founded a new social enterprise, marymac missions LLC, that will be serving family caregivers and their loved ones living with degenerative illness. Please visit us online at or

    As a new social sustainable enterprise, I am working with several local businesses to create what will be the initial products we will offer at the Topsfield Fair as well as online in the near future. I stopped in today to discuss this local opportunity with you, but you were unavailable. I spoke with the store manager, Kate, who explained that Absolutely Everything would not be interested in participating.

    I wish you continued success with Absolutely Everything, a valued local art supply store.

    Please visit us online at, and at the fair if you happen to attend. We will be in the "Green Pavilion" tent Oct 4,5,6, and offering Garden Tours at our home, Oct 9, from 10am - 3pm.

    Congratulations on opening your online store - I hadn't known about this until my visit to your store today. Best of luck.

    Kind Regards,
    ~ Mary

    Moving forward with a listening heart...
    and an action plan,

  2. Dear Kate (store manager),

    Thank you for your time today discussing where I might find flax seed and dried lavender in our local town. I've been able to find it at the coop.

    Kind Regards,
