Big Moving INFO....

When I was trying to find a SUPER CAAAUUUUTE picture to announce the moving sale and I came across this ADORABLE cupcake hamburger pic. It sure made me smile so I thought you girls would like it too!!
And now for some BIG INFO...........
WE WILL BE CLOSED FOR BUSINESS
SATURDAY, SUNDAY AND MONDAY MAY 29, 30, 31.
WE WILL RE-OPEN IN OUR NEW LOCATION ON TUESDAY JUNE 1ST AT 10:00 AM!!!!! Our NEW ADDRESS will be 624 N. Andover Road. This is in the Andover Plaza Shopping Center. Some landmarks that may make it easier for you to locate us, behind Wendy's, near Ace Hardware, next to Simply Silver, and down the way from Tuesday Morning!!! (hope this helps ya!) It's in the shopping center on the NE corner of Central and Andover Road!!Our phone number (316-733-0029) WILL REMAIN THE SAME!!!!
Everything will go "back" to their "regular" scheduled days when we are in our new location!! (Pj Crop Night, Super Scrappin' Saturday, Friday Crop Night, etc!) .... you can always "bookmark" our CALENDAR link, by clicking here and adding it to your favorite bookmarks!!!Okay - now that all of the REALLY important information is out of the way, lets get down to the specifics! We are beginning to move items over to the new store now - however they are not items that you will even notice are gone. As we get closer to our actual MOVING DAY (29th), you may start to notice things a little more "un organized" than usual, and we apologize for this!! We're going to try our VERY best to make this as SMOOTH as possible!!
So please don't think that we won't have our inventory HERE at the store while you're shopping, we will not move PRODUCT until the 29th!!!!It's TRUE - we will have some new items that we haven't carried before at the new location!!

Are you in???

Are you gettin involved in the contest?? If you are a *towner* have you emailed your buddies that live in other states? Are you a Attic blog FOLLOWER?!?! Even if you live here in town get signed up and leave a message

If you have questions about how you become a follower of this blog click on this link for step-by-step pictures and information:




Follow this link to set up a reader list for all of your favorite blogs:




I hope these things help!! If you have any other technical questions feel free to comment or you can always google the question, for instance:


What is the difference between being a follower and a subscriber?

A subscriber is someone who desires the ability to read your blog using a newsfeed reader.http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2007/07/what-is-my-blog-site-feed.htmlFollowers are simply subscribers in a community, where they get their picture displayed on other peoples blogs. Being part of the community allows you, and your readers, to surf related blogs.http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2008/10/following-focused-replacement-for-next.htmlYou, as a blog owner, can allow your subscribers to subscribe by email, if you wish. But that will be a subscription that's separate from Following.http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2009/02/publicising-updates-to-your-blog-using.htmlAnd people can subscribe to your blog feed, and can even Follow your blog, without a Google account. Neither newsfeed subscription, nor Following, exclusively require a Google account. Access to Google Reader, from the dashboard, requires a Blogger account. They all seem to be one package, but the package can be broken into parts, if you wish

A huge thanks to "Mrs. V"! she was cleaning out her hard drive and ran across some of these pics from Ganza's past!! Thought these would be fun to reminisce over - as well as get you in the mood for GANZA in FOUR MONTHS! :)


I have no idea exactly WHAT's going on here - meditating??? Trying to reach communication to my "inner dancer"!?!? Unsure! :) (orrrrr it could just be that it was SUPER hot and i was sweaty!)
I have NO idea exactly what move we're doing here?!?!
Our theme for this ganza was "80's" !! We had a "dance off" with our favs from the 80's! Kate was showing us her "Mr. Roboto" moves! :)
This wonderful shot would be my sister gettin' DOWN with her bad self! :) go sarah, go sarah!
Not only do i love looking at the pics and remembering the good times we've had - but look at the faces in the background! :) LOVE their smiles! And all the cameras! (janine i'm SURE you have some WINNERs on your camera!)

WOW!! even Renee was gettin' down! :) Yami is that you!? And Kim Bartunek?!?
Doing our midnight conga line - with our "leader" JEANIE!

Hola Laura!!


It has already been a month and we need to take un minuto to introduce all of you to our NEWEST Attic Member!!! Please take a minute to get to know her better, you'll be seeing lots and lots more of Laura around here!!! I asked Laura to tell you a lil' somethin' about herself...with a little hesitation, and a LOT of pleading (!!), here's what she had to say!!......



Hey Scrap fanatics! My name is Laura, Auntie Lala to my 6 nieces and nephews and Scrappin' Auntie to all my scrappy friends! My husband, Adam, and I just relocated here from Jacksonville, Florida, (no, I don't miss it!!!) but Wichita isn't new to me 'cuz I spent all my childhood summers here with my dad's family. Scrappin' has been my passion for almost 7 years; I was a designer and instructor at Scrap'n Stuff in FL, teaching everything from 101,102 & 103, to Mom & Me and Kid's Kamp, and my personal fave - altered art! Give me a bucket, box or bag and it's gonna get scrapped up pretty quick! My style is to get down & dirty - rip it, tear it, ink it, then jazz it up with as much ribbon, buttons or doodads as can possibly fit! I'm a Quickutz freak. (Yes! After all these years, I still LV my personal diecut tool.) I'm a total Starbucks SNOB, I love red, Chewy Spree (hint, hint), and I believe no girl can evah have too much jewelry or scrap junk! I'm really excited to be hangin' out at the 'Attic and can't wait to meet each one of you!


**pssstttt....okay - so laura didn't mention that she's ALSO a STAMPING QUEEN!! (or at least WE think she is!).....SOOOOO....what does this mean for YOU!? Well, GOOD NEWS! In the future, you'll hopefully be seeing more stamping PRODUCTS, CLASSES and KNOWLEDGE coming your way from the 'Attic!!! YAY!



ALSO, we need some feedback! Why are in the process of stocking and stalking {ha!!} our new Big Pink Attic space and we want...no...NEED your opinion.



What products do you want to see in the NEW store??



old faves.....



New product....



specific designers or lines....



What do you think??? PLEASE tell us! We want to carry the MUST HAVE items and set our business APART from the other "Big Stores" by bringing you TOP NOTCH customer service and this is ONE way we want to do this. We want the new location to be FLOWING with all of the things you can't get enough of! Pleasepleaseplease let us know (and feel free to be specific)!! Angie L. is calling right know I just know it saying, "WE need more Tim Holtz!!!" (guess what Angie...your wish is being fulfilled!!!) Your opinions are VALUABLE because we know we wouldn't be where we are without such awesome customers!!! So Leave a BLOG Comment (we are a little lacking in that department....I'll have to brainstorm some ways to *Spark* the commenting section of the blog!!), call, email the store, or simply let us know the next time you are in...tell us what you think we should carry. All suggestions are WANTED, APPRECIATED, and CONSIDERED!!!



I hope you are allll having a FELIZ CINCO de MAYO!!! I am up to my eyeballs in mexican food right now!! (tough job, I know!!!) besosbesos. dc
