    Whew…I only love a couple of those releases! Thank goodness because OA usually has the means to empty my wallet. LOL!

    Thanks, Nancy — yours are the first peeks I’ve seen — OA doesn’t even have anything on their blog yet.

    The farm girl reminds me of the Campbell soup kid 🙂

    Huge OA fan here! I can’t judge too much from these photos but I can see that I’m going to like them all … as usual. Sigh. I think Midway is my favorite.

    WOW, I so appreicate seeing this as I am a huge fan of OA. I don’t much care for any of it except the Christmas line. I am not sure if they have new designers, but I wish they would go back to the design style of their older lines. I thought 9-5 was horrific. I guess it is all in the person’s interests. The bulk of my papers are from OA, so they must be doing something right!

Let us know your thoughts!
