Big Tag Sale

Hi everyone,

What a crazy week. Not only did I have to get ready for our theme crop this weekend, but we had report cards, and Nikolas had a bad week, and then my husband decided to paint the house. Total and complete madness.

But, I do want to thank everyone who called in, e-mailed me, or stopped by to say Happy Birthday, that is greatly appreciated. You guys are awesome!

The crop last night was a ton of fun. The goodie bag included the Explore collection from We are memory makers...cute! But, I did forget to pick the customer of the month for December, so, I am doing it right now live on the blog. Tammy E you are the new customer of the month for December. Congratulations you get to make 8 layouts for the wall. But, you get 10% off all your purchases for the month of December. To keep me honest, the name was pulled by Juli H. and witnessed by Jen S. and Beth W.

I do want to say that my favorite part of the crop was the 38 seconds each one of them got to shop for 38% off. That's right, all the ladies got 38% off all the items they could grab in 38 seconds. It was a blast! I love to torture them. This always gets everyone riled up and I LOVEto do that.

The Christmas Crop is almost full...2 more spots left. Then, we will be asking for deposits to guarantee your spots. I don't want any last minute cancellations when I have people on the waiting list. So, if your thinking about this one, think fast. As for the girlfriends crop we are about half full for that one. This will be SO much fun. The games are hilarious! More torture techniques then ever.

Well, I'd better go, I must get my stuff packed up to take home, I get to scrap this week...Yippee...only 2 days of work.

Also, don't forget we are closed for thanksgiving but we are open for the day after Thanksgiving sales...OMG...we are having a tag sale...come in pull out a tag and get anywhere from 5 to 50% off your entire purchase. But don't fret this sale is from 2-5 pm - so you'll have plenty of time to get your other christmas shopping done. So, remember we are only open from 2-5 on Friday. I will see ya on Saturday...with tons of new sample. Yeah!.

I am out.

Oops, I forgot about my birthday sale

Hi again,

I forgot Thursday is my birthday and I need you all to help me celebrate with a 38% off paper sale. That's right I am 38 and the sale is 38% off every piece of PAPER in the entire store. Sorry, you CANNOT combine this with your shop hop pass. This sale is Thursday only from 10 - 5 pm don't miss out.

More details in this week's newsletter.


It's almost that time again

Hi Everyone,

Well the shop hop is half over and things are just great. I am so glad I participated. Keep coming in.

For the rest of the world, my son is on his first day of the vitamins Attentive Child. My mom had to ship them from New York, we are on the waiting list here. So, I'll give you an update as soon as I can. I really hope this works. I'm not asking for miracles, i just want him to pay attention long enough to master all the second grade skills he needs to move on. Which so far had been hit or miss. So, keep your fingers crossed. And, if you are in a prayer group pray for him and both to get patience.

On a lighter side, the Christmas Crop is at 17. So, hurry, we are only taking 3 more names.

Also, the home sweet home crop this weekend still has space. But, the paper and the goodies arrived. Beautiful. Believe me you'll want to buy this paper. The crop is Saturday, don't wait too late to reserve your spot.

The lace cardstock is here and it's beautiful, and as soon as I am done here I am going to go play with it. That way you can all see some samples. GORGEOUS!

We are expecting A2Z this week and creative imaginations. You know that paper with the disney meals I was talking shipped...yippee...just in time for the crop. I am also expecting some Bo-bunny in...beautiful kits, too.

Well, I need to start cleaning up, my uncle made some roast pork Delicious!

Finally, I think my mom is planning a sneaky surprise visit, we'll see.

Gotta go - lots of goodies to get in the computer.

Thank you...Shop Hop Madness

Hi Everyone,

First, before I get into all the shop hop madness I must say that you are all so wonderful. I have gotten such an outpouring of support for my son. You can't all possibly know how much that means to me. As much fun as I can be when it comes to my kids...It's all serious business. I have gotten phone calls, e-mails, visits with suggestions, help, ideas, alterntive medicine, with Hope. I can't possibly explain how much that means to me. One of the best suggestions so far, has been the use of attentive child from GNC. My husband and I agreed to try it and see if it would work for us. And guess what they were all sold out at the Lehigh Store and have a waiting list. So, I recruited my mom to find some at her local store and it's on it's way. So we are doing a 15-30 day trial. You just know when it works. So, we are waiting to get it. I'll let you know what happens. Again, THANK YOU.

Secondly, our Meet the Designer's event was a huge success. We had over 40 customers come in and try our make-n-takes. We still have some chocolate mousse cake, pretzels, and chips left. But, we are sold out of the 8 x 8 acrylic albums and a fewer other things. So, don't wait to long before you come in.

Wow, where are all these scrappers coming from. It's incredible. What madness. I have never ever seen half the people who walked in through our doors. I do have to admit, I loved all the beautiful comments "I don't want to leave" - Natalie, I can't believe you got so much new paper since I was here 2 1/2 weeks ago - Nadia, and the list goes on.

I also got a very unexpected visit from Janet & Colleen from Scrapbooks, Etc. They are just great. You ladies have to go and check them out. Great mom and daughter team and the baby is just gorgeous. I miss having a baby around. I am going to have to wait to be a grandma, though. No more midnight feedings for me.

All the new faces have just been great. And the Christmas Crop is more than half full. So, don't wait on that. Believe me you don't want to miss out on this crop. It's going to be awesome. Well, I'd better go I have a million things to do before I can go home and John is already in his way.

Oh, I want to let everyone know that the lace cardstock from KI will be arriving this week - somewhere between Wednesday - Friday. This is going to fly out the door. I guarantee it.

The big hit this weekend the Bisous paper - awesome, come check it out.

Talk to you soon,
