I'm working on it

I am just overwhelmed with the response to the new classes. Our January calendar is currently available at the store and the February one will be ready Tuesday, we really are planning ahead...I promise. We have added some other things and changed some things so make sure you check out our calendar or get it online at
My team is so fabulous they have really pulled together to make next year a great success. As for the contest kits they will be available on Tuesday, January 2nd. The theme has been changed to winter and the colors are in blues. There will be a free make and take with this product ...coming soon. It's beauutiful. Can't tell you what it is.
We also just got in the hot new baby girl and baby boy Doodlebug papers...I am still waiting on the other two lines.
And yesterday, we got in the hot new KI Wild Thing Line. I am in the process of putting that in the computer now along with putting together the Christmas Kits for tonight. If you stop by tonight between 6 and midnight and mention this post you will get 20% off all your christmas themed products. Got to make room for Valentines Day.

Well, I better get those kits finished. All new stuff. These kits will also be available for purchase @ $25.00. No Discounts on these...sorry. They are already at an awesome price.

Planning Ahead

Hi everyone,

What a year this has been. I have been excited, thrilled, sad, miserable, amazed, and mostly importantly exhausted. Opening the store in just a short few weeks was the easy part, now the work has really begun. I have so many ideas, thoughts, plans but executing them has been a struggle. So as everyone thinks about their new years resolutions I plan. I plan some awesome classes, some incredible crops, some hysterical theme crops, and most importantly getting the best products at the best prices as soon as possible.
I am posting my plans in hopes that you will all help me to stick to them. Making plans is a lot like maing resolutions, you want to reach all your goals but things just happen. So, I am asking you all, begging really, that you guys help me get my goals met. I am going to post my plans in hopes that everyone will help me reach them. So, when you see me ask me if I have stuck to my plans, ask me how my planning is going, ask me what's next...push me, interrogate me, force me to be a better, more organized me.

My goals for 2007 include:

Monthly Theme Crops
new times 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.
(January - The Notebook)
(February - Love Is In the Air)
(March - Spring Has Sprung)

I forgot two more names Micheline L. and Sherry B. So if this is you, stop in and come get your credit.

Also, we have a hot new idea for christmas. Instead of the actual wish list form we are providing bins for you to put in everythting that you want. You put your name on it. Then, you send in your family and friends. They give us your name and we provide them with your bin. They can shop for as much or as little as they can. We will hold the bins until December 26th.

We will also be providing this service for birthdays. Just come in 15 days prior to your birthday and pick your stuff out. You know the rest.

You should be getting our newsletter today with some coupons so be on the lookout for that.

Keep Scrappin'
