Did you hear?


Did you hear?
There are only 2 spaces left for our National Scrapbooking Day Crop. That's right 2 spots. I can't wait! The goodies for that one are even better than the ones from american craft. And the paper in my goodie bag is so hot it still hasn't come in. It's suppose to ship any day now. But, I will give you a's a brand new release from a Big company and the embellishments will put a smile on your face.

But, did you all forget about our Mother's Day Tea Crop and our Mommy and Me Crop. We still have 6 spots for the Mommy and Me and 7 spots for the Mother's Day Tea. And, you should see the paper for the Mother's Day Tea. It's Tea Party paper and embellishments from...ooohhh can't tell. But, you will love it. As for the Mommy and Me Crop we will be having some great challenges... that's right challenges. So stay tuned. You won't want to miss this one.

As for our Lucky You Crop:
I want to thank all the ladies who came out. For Puerto Ricans, parties are a big thing (if you know any of us you know we like to party). We like to go all out and show everyone a good time. But, we are also very emotional. And let me tell you when I give a crop and I can spend the night laughing and crying I know that was a good party. So, thank you for making me feel like family. As most of you know, I have no family in town or even in the state. So, I share all kinds of info with all of you and let me tell you how grateful I am. It's like I have a whole new even bigger family. For that I am the most grateful for.
But, just to stir things up (before I start crying again) my mom was on hand to help out and she was just wonderful...(quite unbelievable). Thanks for being so nice to her, it really means a lot to me. I think that as I mature and start to become my mother I am beginning to understand her more. So, here's to good times and great laughs, remember one day it will be your turn to turn into your mother. Well, isn't that food for thought.

Well, I'd better go, I have to finish organizing the pile of papers on clearance this weekend. For those of you who didn't read our e-mail. We are having tables and tables full of paper and embellishments at 40% off. That's right 40% off for 3 days only. Some come before it's too late. We are open till 6:30 today and 5 p.m. tomorrow.

See ya,

Hi Everyone,

I know, what am I doing blogging when I have 25 ladies coming to crop on Saturday. Well, I am happy to say that I am just delirious, deliriously happy not deliriously insane. My parents are here "surprise" visiting for the next few weeks and I just got my "Secret Designer" for our 1 year anniversary crop. We will be having a full weekend of croppin and classes with one of this generations most creative minds. We have been e-mailing back and forth for the last couple of days and she is just fantastic. You guys are going to love her.
The tentative plans are a 12 hour crop on Saturday and an 8 hour crop on Sunday with one class each day included in the price for the weekend of $150.00. It also includes 2 breakfast, 2 lunches, 1 dinner and tons of snacks (including CHOCOLATE). Oh, and let's not forget the door prizes, the goodie bags, the raffles, the everything. If I wasn't so darn tired (my parents were "surprising" visiting until 2 am) I would be jumping for joy. So, to those who read my blog I am giving you the first hint: Her favorite color is pink. LOL.
Well, I gotta go gotta get to those goodie bags...time waits for no one.

It's been crazy around here

Hi everyone,
I really can't believe that it has been over a month since my last blog. Where does the time go? I have really taken on a lot to do and at this point I am finally getting it together. CHA Madness is a month long thing. I am still in the process of receiving the NEW Stuff. Companies like Hambly and Creative Imaginations, Daisy D and Q and Co. haven't even begun sending out the new stuff. How does that happen? The show was in January and still the product is not available for shipping. Well, at least that means I get to hold on to my money a little bit longer. But, I just can't wait to get my hands on all of it. Especially Basicgrey, Daisy D's, CI, Autumn Leaves, Maya Road, and Q & Co. But, my sleeper hit for this show was Stemma. We got 7 new collections from them that shipped right away and are here now. I already used it to create a puzzle piece mini-album for next month's altered class. I LOVE LOVE LOVE it.
The collections are all so different yet so yummy. How does that happen?

Well as for our big crop this month...we are almost sold out. I have 2 spots left now. That's right 2 spots left. But, the goodie bags from American Crafts are just fantastic. They are some really good goodies. They also coordinate with most of the product in my goodie bags. That's right there are 2 goodie bags...2 unbelievable goodie bags. The door prizes, games and challenges are also awesome. You just have to be there. I am already giving too much away. I am just so excited. I can't help myself. But, if it gets to crazy, I will have to open up the upstairs and go croppin crazy. So, think about it. If you have a large group that wants to all crop together. We can try to do that. I'm just thinking out loud. Just in case we run out of room downstairs.
Well I better go I am training the new girl. Desi. Nice girl and she is expecting too. So mind ya...she is still learning the ropes. Gives us some is really hard to replace someone like Jen.

Happy Scrappin,
