It's "Sprinter"..........

Hey Bloggerettes, All I can say is "it's SPRINTER" - I coin this phrase because it's "spring with a touch of winter". I wanted to let you know that the store will be open this Sunday (12-5). There are a lot of out-of-towners roaming around and I hope they stop by. There was a delightful customer, Kathy, at the store today - she was full of interesting things. She considers herself a "shoarder" - it's a hybrid shopper/hoarder of scrapbooking supplies. Don't ya love it!!! She told me about a YouTube site she belongs to where women post YouTube videos of the scrapbook stuff they bought. It's called "Haul Video". One woman even goes into her bathroom, locks the door and shoots a secret video of her daily haul. I thought that I had heard it all!

The next set of weekly classes.............

Hey Bloggerettes, I want to let you know that we will be starting another Lynn Thune "Shabby Chic" session at the beginning of May. Please call the store if you are interested in signing up. It is a 20 week commitment with a hiatus in the summer months. The size will be 6"x 8" landscape. The theme is "The Here & Now" - what's happening in your life right now. The cover will be a unique tri-fold with a thicker spine. The next "Art Journal" classes by Jennifer Chipperfield are scheduled to start in mid-May. Drop by the store to see some examples of journals done by the last class - quite amazing!
