On the road again...

Or should I say "In the air again?" How exciting to be flying away with Mike for the next several days. 20 years together, 15 of them married. One half of my life! We are headed to San Francisco! I have many pictures on my mind. That's my kind of souvenir. What's better than that?
Wanted to tell you that we do still have room in our "Junkie Summer Camp" which begins on Monday, August 4th. It's from 10-2, Mon-Thurs, for $125.00. We have soooo many projects for our Younger Junkies to do. They just have to bring the basic supplies and a sack lunch! If you have any more questions, just call the store.
Also, we are still having sign-ups for our guest teacher from 7Gypsies! She will be teaching 3 most awesome projects on August 16th. If you are a Gypsie lover and want to take all 3 classes then you will get a private invite to the "Trunk Show" on Friday night the 15th. How cool! To take advantage of the full package it would cost you $120.00 or you can purchase the individual classes separately. (If you cannot make it, kits can be purchased as well.) If you want to know more details about these classes then call the store.
Thanks to all of you who came out to the Garage Sale... It was awesome. There was barely room to turn around! A beautiful sight and guess what? No camera!
Can't wait to hear from you!

Just a few more days....

Don't forget to mark your calendars! The awaited "GARAGE SALE" is this Saturday... It all starts at 9:00 a.m. and will end at 5:00 p.m.
You will find stuff soooo cheap... It's always a BIG day! For those of you that didn't get to reserve a spot to sell your stuff this time we will do another garage sale at the beginning of next year. But remember, only cash or checks will be accepted for garage sale items.
Have fun... See you then...

Home Again... For a little bit...

Hey Yall,
So glad to hear how many of you came to shop while we were away at CHA. We enjoyed the show, didn't seem as crowded this year. Spent an extra day and night and went to see the "White Sox." It's an outdoor field and the slogan there in Chicago is the "Windy City." I can promise you that there was NO wind for the game. It was so HOT! I have a Starbucks mug collection and have never bought the Chicago one. I found it today and bought it and told Lisa that I will use a sharpie to scratch out the "Windy City" part. Anyways, the show was fun. Was able to see a bunch of familiar faces, a whole lot of new products and took so many pictures in hopes to do some great layouts when the products arrive! We recieved the Glitz papers last week, and had a call already today for another vendor that has product ready to ship. We'll have a few trickles and them boom, it will all start again. Every year we get to take pictures with the "Celebrities" of the scrapbooking industry but have never had the privilege of taking a photo with this fella.
Just look at how handsome he is!

The CRICUT in real life!
And he is the color of the store! Just needs a touch of orange! I have a few surprises in store for you so watch for the coming emails and blog entries! Great fun coming to the "Junkie" soon!
I will only have a few days at the store, then my honey and I are going to San Francisco to celebrate our anniversary! I cannot wait.
Thanks for your support and friendship,

Hey everyone. Danielle here.
In all of my mom's hustle and bustle to get all ready to go out of town, to the show in Chicago, to get the latest and greatest for all of you, she totally forgot to post the happenings at the store for while she is gone. We still have the tables in the back full of merchandise, all at 40% off! Also, for every $25 that you spend (this includes sale merchandise), we will put your name into the Junk Pail and my mom will pull a winner when she returns, for a nice gift certificate! Also, we still have just a few spots left for the garage sale. Call the store for further details. Don't forget to stop in for these great savings. The sale will be going on through ??? The drawing will be held on Sunday after the store closes.

It's a New Week...

I hope you all had a great week. I ended up having the whole week off. I had my neice over for the week and we took her to Schlitterbahn, Kemah & the movies. Oh yeah, and Deer Park's snowcones. She enjoyed some time scrapbooking at my house too. Now, in the morning I'll hear the alarm screaming at me saying, "Wake-Up!"

I just wanted to say a quick hello, and to tell you that we've extended our table sale through next Sun., July 20th. But wait... this week, let's do 40% off the junk on the tables. (No stamps on these clearance items.) I have been pre-ordering so much stuff that it's kinda freakin' me out! So we gotta "Move-it, Move-it, Move-it!"

Thurday morning I leave for CHA so I'll announce a cool giveaway this Wednesday for the time that I'm gone. I must say that the "Junkie-Bees" do such a wonderful job taking care of the store. They just want me to go and order more. One of the best parts about this trip to Chicago though is that I bought us tickets to see the "WHITE SOX!" There is nothing better that I would rather do while there (except, the obvious, to see Wicked), so I am just thrilled! And the pizza. Lisa and I eat at this one place at least 3-4 times each time we go there. It gets to be expensive so we have to share coffee in the mornings! (inside joke!)

Remember that tomorrow morning we have our "Garage Sale" sign ups. Call @ 10:00 a.m. if you want to reserve your space. We will tell you the details when you call.
Hope to see you this week while I'm at the store. Come visit!

Junkie Update...

We are having a table sale yall, and it goes on through Thursday evening. This is the first time that I've done this since the Kemah store. We have like 9 of our tables in the crop room full of stuff. We have a bunch of things on one of the tables that would make great handmade Christmas gifts. Bare recipe boxes and other bare junk. I always try and make my gifts and it seems that I am busting my butt to get them all done in time. I tell ya, the stress of being a scrapbooker and paper crafter! We'll put it all back out for regular price on Thursday evening due to our Friday night crop.
Now, GARAGE SALE: The date for our garage sale is July 26th. For those of you that want to rent 1/2 of a table, we will begin signing up for that this coming Monday, July 14th. The cost for 1/2 of a table is 10 bucks. These spots sell very very quick, so mark the date if you want to sell some of your junk to earn new junk. It's proven to be a great event. At the time of you renting your spot, we will give you all the details of how things have to be priced and so forth. For all of you that don't sign up, you gotta stop by on the day of the sale and save big! This is something that we do twice a year. Remember to call this Monday, July 14th for a table. They usually go pretty fast.
We have great things in store for you real soon. Keep an eye out watching!
I'm sorry that I haven't posted for a while, but I'm back on track now. Thanks for taking a minute and getting your update!
