Scrapbooking By Laura

Fall, classes, garage sales, new stuff and so much more!

I know it’s been a while and I don’t even know where to start with all the information I have to share!  You may have thought we have all flittered off to vacation or somewhere else, but we have been busy, with top secret plans…. Well we warned to not spill the beans by the boss!  And hence why all the hush hush and the whispering!

But we are so very excited!  As finally the go ahead has been given, and it’s time to let you all in on the excitment!

Did you happen to attend our open house earlier this year?  Did you miss it but heard about the rave reviews? DId you see the products that we ordered in especially for our customers that we only put out that evening?  Well here is your chance to get in on it again!!  We decided it was so much fun, we are going to have another OPEN HOUSE!  So take out those calendars and mark in your date books September 26 from 7-10 pm.  This is a drop in event, you don’t have to be there the whole three hours, but be forewarned we sold out of some stuff quite early on!  This really is not an event to be missed, there is food (maybe you can whisper in Laura’s ear we would like the chocolate fondue back again! Hey I”m rooting for it!), there is brand new releases from the scrapbooking world, and really just a lot of fun 🙂

So we after we thought about that, we sat around some more, and one member of our crew pipped with ‘man I sure would like to buy some of that new stuff, but I have so much stuff already’.  There was a pause then another brainstorm took place!  We are going to host a scrapbooking garage sale.  How many of you have thought the exact same thing? How many of us feel guilty for buying something new, knowing we have dressers, boxes, rooms, closests etc filled with supplies? I know we all at the store have felt that, but what can we say?  We like the new stuff!!  The idea of the scrapbooking garage sale, is you come, bring all the supplies you want to get rid off, and set your prices.  You will be surrounded by others of like mind.  Now here is the true beauty of this, you may notice your neighbor has those letters that would be just perfect for your page.  She may notice you have the perfect flowers for her page….. Well either you can buy from each other, or perhaps arrange a trade.  At the end, you have plurged your unwanted stuff, and someone has gone home with it so very happy!  There is a cost of $30 to rent a table.  We feel it’s important to support our community so we are donating that $30 to the local Women’s Shelter.  The fee is non-refundable as we have to rent the tables from the mall.  You can share a table if there is some of you that would like to do that.  You are responsible for finding your table buddy though.  We are expanding but aren’t ready to start any match making business LOL!  The date is October 18 from 930-6.

There will be more information trickling in as we finalize all these events.  We have been asked about the September class schedule and it is coming out, very soon.  It should be finalized by the end of this week and I’ll get up on the web as soon as I can.

We had a shipment of the brand new BoBunny Paper come in, and let me just say gorgeous!  Considering I was entering the order, it was a bit difficult to not just take it all home!  But I resisted and put it out on the shelf for you to buy (well okay maybe two or three or – whistling – sheets made it to my house……).  It is beautiful paper and it’s sure to not last long.

Well I think that’s enough of information overload for now!  Have a great day and we hope to see you soon 😀
