We got a surprise arrival today..the brand new 7 gypsies is absolutely gorgeous...still waiting on their certified stamps. We also got their class kits. They are scheduled for October, so be on the lookout for that...they will be done by our brand new design team.

We have 3 more designer kits available..and your chances are 50/50 of being hired as a designer/instructor for our team. Think about it, this is a chance to be noticed, get recognized, get some groupies (just kidding) just never know unless you try it.

Well, we did get our Basicgrey delivery. We received their new lilykate and Romani lnes, their naked chipboard, the monograms, the small diecut alphabets, and my favorite item of them all ...4 different gorgeous rub-ons. They are hot! I have a feeling that they will be put to good use at the crop this weekend. Yippee.
My pet peeve today is due to Fancy Pants Designs. After placing a substantially large order and being told the items would be here in two weeks (two weeks ago) I received a phone message that the chipboard would be arriving today and the paper would arrive next week... in their warehouse..which translates into another two weeks for me...they claimed 10 days...I'll let you know how that works out.
As for Crate paper, I am still waiting on confirmation of it's arrival Tuesday, I am keeping my fingers crossed.
Tomorrows arrivals include Cosmo Cricket...their chipboard and their naked cigar boxes. WHOA!!!
Let's see if it arrives as scheduled.
Don't forget, we are closed this Tuesday is going to be a hot day for us. Yippee...Deliveries expected include MME, Technique Tuesday, and a couple of other things I can't recall from the top of my head.
Well, it's almost midnight again, so I've got to go.
Hope to see you all at our crop on Saturday.

Hey Everyone,

I just confirmed that Basic Grey will be delivered tomorrow. I can't wait to get my hands on it. Those of you who have boys will love it or if your just a basicgrey lover...this will knock your socks off.

Technique Tuesday has also shipped and Cosmo Cricket's cigar boxes are expected Friday.

My pet peeve today is that I received the rack for the new MME products, but the papers won't be here until Tuesday. AAAAUGGGHH! But, it's all going to be here... from their gems to their CHIPBOARD titles and as always their double sided papers...9 whole boxes of it.

I am still waiting on Crate Paper (supposedly here on Tuesday), Q and Co., Fancy Pants Design, more Prima chipboard and flowers, Creative Imaginations (beautiful Mickey Mouse paper), more Autumn Leaves, Imaginisce, One Heart One Mind, 7 gypsies, Scenic Route, American Crafts, and several other companies that I can't remember at this time.

I actually had time to make one sample today. I'm hoping to be able to do more at this weekend's crop. As always, I will be here for the entire crop. You guys need to come in and sign up or call us, we have plenty of room and it's only six dollars for half a table and ten for an entire table. I also give a 10% discount on all purchases made during crops (not valid during free crops).

I want to thank all of you who have told your friends about us. To thank you all, I have made new flyers for September with a 10% off make sure you are one of the next 25 shoppers to receive your coupon.

I also want to thank Jessie and Jen for all they do. It's hard to believe that it's only been 3 weeks and we have a website up, a blog, online shopping, a packed store, and a great crop area. It's so funny to think how different we are and yet we work so well together. Jen, the quiet and sophisticated wife and mother, Jessie the young single mom, and Me ...well what could I say about me...I'm a nut. But, one thing is for sure, we really love scrapbooking. Jen and Jessie get just as excited as I do when a package arrives, I can hardly keep them away from the new merchandise. Well, at three weeks its all new, but you know what I mean.

Well, it's getting late and I really need to get to bed, so I can be ready to put all that new basicgrey stuff in the computer, it should be available for purchase between 4-6 p.m. tomorrow.

Also, don't forget we have changed our store hours for September to 10:30 - 6:30. We will also be closed on Mondays. Sundays is up in the air, so if you want us to keep opening on Sundays, keep coming in or e-mail us and say that you are a sunday scrapper. If we get enough of a response, we will stay open on Sundays, it's up to you, let your voice be heard.

Oops, I almost forgot to tell you about the Autumn Leaves stamps that came in...the swirls part 2, flowers, etc. Beautiful.

It's almost midnight...I really gotta go.
