Seize the day.........

Hey Bloggerettes,

We had quite a few out-of-towners visit the store this past week. It's funny, when you talk to people, you find out what a small world it really is. One lady was from Longlac, Ontario. It's a small northern Ontario town just a few miles down the road from where my parents lived at one time. I love that kind of thing.

We had a few small shipments come in.

  • Cornish Heritage Farms stamps (they are closing their business so there won't be any more available - I thought it prudent to get some of the Thomas Kincaid scenery stamps for making Christmas cards with the Glitter Ritz)

  • Cricut matts

  • corrugated paper (2 colors)

  • Cuttlebug embossing folders (Retro Kitchen and Animal Prints)

  • Graphic 45 "Hallowe'en in Wonderland" (much sought after) paper called "Wonderland Classifieds"

  • Basic Grey 6x6 paper pads from the collection called "Basics" in manilla and kraft colors

A wee, tiny baby visited the store on Friday evening. Lynn's newest granddaughter, Ella, started scrapbooking at 8 days old. She is very sweet and cuddly. Lynn and Sharla were both beaming with pride. Lynn would like to continue with the 6x12 "Shabby Chic" classes the first full week of September. She won't do classes the week of Sept 20 and 27. The plan is to do 2 layouts/night on the following 2 weeks to catch up.

7 Gypsies had an invitational webinar for retailers not attending CHA this summer. It was very cool to be a part of this webinar. Some of the order that I placed that night is being shipped already. "Paddington" is one of the new paper collections-click on the photo to have a better look at it.

Linda Cain, a friend that I made at Ranger U, has just been named to Tim Holtz's design team. She made a comment on my last post after I sent her a congratulations on her blog. Check out her website through Tim's blog. Very talented lady!

Thanks to Mr. & Mrs. McCall for the door repairs on Saturday morning.

In My Humble Opinion:
I talked to my Mommie today. She is doing much better and sounded good. Oh ya, if anybody needs an old air conditioner I had a few calls at the store wondering if we paid cash for them - the scrap yard - people think we collect old metal scrap!!!! We get at least one call a day.
