Another Year Ending

WOW - can you believe that we are at the end of another year? At one time in my life I couldn't wait for the time to fly by. Now I want it to slow down!  2009 seems like it was one big blur - there was so much going on and changes this year.

Scrapbook Connection had some major changes in 2009 - moving from Front Street to our own, very unique, building. It was a long process but well worth it. With that move, there is now an endless to do list.

I'm looking forward to 2010 and some exciting events and classes that we will be holding.

This year look for:
* Chow fundraiser in January - it will be our WINTERFEST - hopefully we will have some (but not too much) snow.

*Birthday parties

*Basic Grey Layout and card classes

*Cricut classes

*Demos, Demos,

*More samples on display

*stamping classes

*Fundraisers - both for causes (Heart, Diabetes) and for local groups

*Crops and crops - gotta get those pages done!

*Giveaways and drawings for products, classes

*How about a contest or two????

*scrapbook garage sale - clean out your supplies that you no longer use - spread the love!

*+ more classes and events (please feel free to send me your ideas and wants)
Check the website  for products that are currently in the store (my goal is to keep the inventory current). You can order your products and either pick up in the store or have them shipped to you (shipping charges will apply).

It has been a pleasure seeing all the old faces from Front Street and meeting so many new people at our new store. Thank you for your business in 2009 and I look forward to new and exciting happenings in 2010.

PS: now to ponder my New Year Resolutions!!!!! What are yours???

Christmas Cards

In case you need a few Christmas Card ideas - here are three ideas

another great use for the drippy goo paper punch

The red in the santa hat has stampendous flock on it and is really cool.  I also used stickles on the snowflakes to give it a nice sparkle.  You can also add white flock or stickles to the pom pom on the hat.

My new favorite die - spellbinders nestabilities labels :)

These cards are also displayed in the store if you want a better view. 
The supplies for making them are also in stock.

The Tragic Apple Pie Mishap

My mom has cooked Thanksgiving dinner for as long as I can remember.  While the number of people that come for dinner has decreased, the amount of food is probably the same!  For the past few years, Greg's job is to make the stuffing and mine is to make the pies. 

So Thanksgiving morning starts the usual way - grab a couple cups of coffee and begin the food making process.  This year my sister was in town a few days before and was able to help my mom get alot done, so we had an easy morning.  So, after peeling, cutting, and preparing my two apple pies from scratch, including the crust I put them into the oven and my sister, Greg and I went for a run - just a short one. 

When we came back (with 3 minutes still on the timer), I walked into the house and it was pretty "cloudy".  I looked into the oven and my pies were black - burnt to a crisp!  Somehow, the oven temperature was changed to 450 degrees.  UGHHHHH

Not only was all my work ruined - there was no apple pie for Thanksgiving :(
