Sad News

My friend called me last night to tell me her mother died.  The sad thing is that her father died October 30th of last year and her only sister died about 8 years ago. 

I will be off to Buffalo sometime this week for the wake and funeral.  If I have to change hours I will get the word out.

Today will be a day to be thankful for my health, family and friends :)

Scrap Pink - Rainy Weather Survivors

A big hurray to those who braved the horrible rain on Saturday to come to our Breast Cancer Fundraiser.  I know the ladies there completed so many pages that they were an inspiration to me. 

Here is a picture of our "pink ladies" busy at work.

I had a fun day with you all - hope you had fun too!  Can't wait until the next crop!

Not Enough Hours In A Day

SOMETIMES I wish I had more hours in a day. 
SOMETIMES it's so hard to accomplish everthing on my to-do list. 

It never fails that I decide to completely change the store around whenever I have major things going on - like the breast cancer fundraiser, a class, three orders that arrived this week, and Alicia's dance studio's annual garage sale on Friday & Saturday. 

So, new tables arrived today - no not from my favorite brown truck:) this time from the Staples truck - I needed to put them in just the right place so there goes moving everything around!  Well, not everything, just everything on the floor.  Everything on the walls will be next!  When you come in to the store, let me konw what you think of the new layout!

All the new products are in the computer and almost in their spot on the wall.  I started setting up for Scrap pink - more to accomplish tomorrow to be ready for Sat.  And the garage sale items are all tagged. I certainly could have done more, but I ran out of tags!!  Oh well, the next one is in the Spring.

Tomorrow is Finish It Friday = I hope I can finish a "paper crafting" project tomorrow - my goal will be to finish . . . 2 cards

See ya soon

Happy Columbus Day!

For those of you with the day off today, enjoy and I hope to see you at the store later.  

Family weekend at college was fun.  Not only did we get to spend time with Tyler, but we met one of his roommates and a couple of his friends and we were able to spend time with both Greg and my families.   Tyler's friends seem like good kids and they get along really well. 

Tyler is living in a dorm room with 3 other guys and boy was I surprised that 1. all the beds were made, 2.  there was no "stuff" around 3.  the room did not smell!  I wonder -- is it always like that or did they tidy up because of family weekend?????

Back to scrapbook talk - I'm happy with my Finish It Friday - I finished 2 cards that needed to be done by Friday - and on the way to Buffalo I was able to finish an album and prep the next card class.  Melissa and Kathleen were at the store on Friday an made some progress on their work too.  How about the rest of you?  Need some inspiration - come on in on Friday with one or two of your unfinished projects and Finish It!

Well, I'm off to do errands and take Alicia to the dentist and then the store to find an awesome Deal of the Day for those stopping in today!

Today is Finish It Friday

Do you have an unfinished project?  Have a hour or two or three or four on Friday? 

Pack that project and come on over to Scrapbook Connection and Get it Done!  Then you will be ready to move on to the next unfinished project - cuz I know mostly everyone has something (s) left undone.

The popcorn machine will be up and running.

Just a reminder that today, October 9th ,I will be closing at 3 pm - then I will be off to see Tyler:)  I bet he has grown more since the last time we saw him.  He's almost as tall as Greg and I don't think he's stopped growing yet.

Hope to see you later today

PS:  I open at 11 am
