I've been pushing the keyboard a whole lot ordering new products for all the scrapbook junkies that need more stuff! We're getting pumped up for the new products that will be coming in soon. Can you believe that the show is not even over in California, and I've already recieved a new shipment from Karen Foster? There are these new starburst looking brads that are incredible. I'll be re-ordering those I'm sure by the weekend.

We have a nice little surprise for you. It begins now until Sunday... (through Feb.1st.)
Each day you can come in for 1 item @ 30% off. Yep... Come on... and... that's off of any item! Well, it does exclude the clearance items.
No stamps on this offer though.

It's my birthday weekend, so how about a drawing? Let's see, what about a gift card? This way you can spend it how YOU want to spend it if you win!
Come by, shop, visit, spend $20 and your name will be eligible to go into the winning bucket.
I'll be giving away a $50 gift card!
This will be for Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Each day you can earn 1 ticket for the drawing. We will call the winner Sunday evening and announce your name here on the blog.

Hey, and don't forget to sign up for the "Shop Hop" with us! Ask us how!
Have a wonderful rest of the week...

To begin our Valentines Celebration...

We are having a FREE make & take this Saturday (the 17th) beginning @ 1:00 to kick the season off. Here’s a little picture of it.

This is the cutest idea and easy to make for the loved ones that you have. Come by and make yours while quantities last.
Valentine's is my favorite!!! So we will have many other ideas to send you...
Our design team picked up their 2nd challenges and in 2 weeks you will see their Valentine layouts all over the store.

We are back from Tahoe and I just gotta tell you a couple of funnies...
To start things off, the first step that I took out of the rental car, onto the driveway of the house that we rented, I slipped on the ice and fell. It's the kind of fall that you look around to see if anyone saw and it makes you so embarrassed. I fell in the driveway twice! (Don't you know that the people that live there, say, "It's gotta be a southerner!"
We spent a day in the snow and built a snowman, which was the cutest little fella I must say. It's not that easy rolling a snowball! We spent a day skiing, and if you could have only seen me! On the butt just about the whole time. Now I can fall pretty good. Mike looks so good in the gear. Wow! Gavin has found the sport that he loves. It's his 2nd time to ski and I think he could go for the blues next time. Little squirt. Syd got the hang of it pretty easy. I gave up! Oh well, next time!
Then the snowmobile... Yall, in my head I was thinking that we would just get on one, and do our own little thing. No, it was a tour.. and you had to keep up with the others. This snowmobile looked like a monster to me! Freaked me out. The guide was telling us all the things that you shouldn't do and what to do, and by this time I was scared to death! Sydni told Mike that she was scared about riding with me but never told me that. What a trouper. Poor thing! I am serious when I tell you that the tour lasted an extra hour and a half! Why? Mostly because of me!!! The conditions were icy, so the back of the snowmobile would wind out and get stuck. (Others would too though.) Great. I didn't go very fast either, so the group would have to all stop and wait on me. Hahaha. I had total knots in my shoulders and I held them dog-gone handles so tight that I felt like my hands would lock up! Finally I began to loosen up and was able to see some of the view that I went on the tour for! The beauty of it all, made it worth the whole experience. It was actually my favorite part of the trip!
But we are home, safe and sound, (thank God) and I'm ready to get things in order at home and get things ordered for the store. Have a great weekend!
