I have been noticing that the 2 Michael's stores that I frequent most seen to be pushing their Scrapbooking/papercrafting supplies toward the back of the stores. One stores really seems to be featuring jewelry making and the other, floral arrangements. Sometimes (not often), I am pleasantly surprised to see new papercrafting supplies but then they are left to dwindle.
Yes, I did get the same email. I think JoAnn would be more the place to go for home dec supplies because they have more material, pillow covering items, etc. Muchael's has wall dec stuff.
