Waiting to EXHALE!!

Ever feel that way!??!! That's a PRETTY good description of how i'm feeling lately!!! What a whirlwind of a week and weekend!!! And it just keeps on gettin better!! As i type this renee is in FULL SWING teaching 10 (10 year old) girl scouts to make an accordion album in a cute little band aid tin!! We're seeing lots and lots more mom's this week with senior boards....trying to put the finishing (and sometimes beginning!) touches on them!! We are here to help you if you're one of those moms...we can cut out the names or schools names for your board on the cricut - or help to match your colors.....or heck even do it for you!! (for a small fee!!!) :)
So - let's recap this weekend!! This past weekend WAS National Scrapbook Day!!! WHAT A BLAST!!!! We had snacks, laughs and plenty of fun...oh and some great sales and give aways!!! WOW!! What an awesome response we had on the make n takes!!! We did make n takes from 9:00am until 6:00pm!! SERIOUSLY!!! Renee to the rescue - we'd run out of paper for the kits and she'd improvise and we'd have MORE!! THANK YOU ass. man!!! Don't know WHAT we'd do without you!!! And a HUGE shout out to DANA (grout) and DANELLE (washington!)......this was their first time to teach and lead a make n take here at the attic....and what a great job they did!! Dana sold about 30 pairs of Tim Holtz scissors!! :) and Danelle was the MASK queen.... i really think that a LOT of people reallllly benefited from that make n take!! They have a better understanding of masks and it's getting them to think OUTSIDE the box!!! And THESE were A HUGE SUCCESSSSS!! No worries, there are a TON more on the way!!

Having such a huge response got us to thinking......lets do more of these!! Let's come up with some FUN, QUICK, AFFORDABLE and EASY make n takes!! So - be watching for that!! I'd like to get on a regular "routine" of doing these each month!! Any suggestions you may have for us we'd LOVE to hear!!!

We also had a drawing for TWO $50.00 Gift Certificates.....Drum roll please.........the winners are KATHRYN WELCH AND LARISA PARRIS!! Congratulations Ladies!!!! Your Gift Certificate will be on your account next time you visit the store!!! :)

PJ Crop was a HUGE SUCCESS!! (this was roeder style's ribbon!! :) )
Had a total of 28 of us!! And there were QUITE a bit of us left at 5:00AM!! We've YET to have a PJCrop where it hasn't rained...LOVE IT! :) You know how you get when it's 3Am and you are just gidddddy and gigggggglly!?!?! This is for my PJ Croppers....."the DANGO ate your baby!" OMG.....ha ha!! :)
