I, too, have been taken aback by the cost of dies, and have posted on this very topic before. When the cost of the dies exceeds the cost of the stamp set, I really have to decide how badly I need it....

I think the home party business probably peaked about fifteen years ago, and it's been a slow decline ever since. Take, for example, Longaberger, which is now out of business. The companies that can...
