Happy Halloween

Hey Bloggerettes,
Tonight is "Howlers Halloween" at the mall.  Laura, from Dog Gone Healthy, is having a fun night for the canines at her store.  There are at least 4 stores in the mall that are "Dog Friendly" and will be giving out dog treats to the four-legged friends.  How cute is that!

Howl'oween Pupkin Party!

Crazy white stuff on the ground so early.....

Hey Bloggerettes,
Not lovin' the snow to be on the ground so early in the year! I still need to wear sandals and sleeveless tops!

I am in the process of updating the calendar with some upcoming events and classes. Check it out.

I have ordered 24 wooden JINGLE letters. More than half are spoken for already. Don't wait - register now for the class. I won't be able to get any more cut after Nov 30. The "Witches Boots" have been a big hit.

Do you need to get started on your Christmas Cards. Sign up on-line for the Nov 21 class.(Members only eligible to sign up on-line).

Don't you think that your husband should spoil you with a spa day and night at the Hyatt after you do mega Christmas shopping in the downtown core???? I do. I have a good rate at the Hyatt Nov 15, 16 & 17 if you are interested. Cut and paste this section of the blog and send it to your husband. Your luck, he'll want to join you later and take you out for dinner too :)

The Scrap Yard

The Scrap Yard: November 15-17

Hey Bloggerettes, Just checking in with y'all. The Scrap Yard was invited to exhibit at the "Calgary Baby & Tot show" this past weekend. We set up a 600 square foot booth in 4 hours, had at least 3000 people go through it over the weekend and met sooooo many babies. Cute, cute, cute - not that I want one or anything! Baby names are so different now-a-days. We featured our wooden letters - Ray might be super busy in the next month if everybody who loved them comes in to order!!!!! Thanks to my friend Purcell who flew in from Victoria to help. Such a good friend! Lots of new product came in on Friday. We are attempting to get it all out on the shelves in the next few days. The big ticket item that I know arrived is the new SILHOUETTE CAMEO machine. I am anxious to try it out. Silhouette CAMEO® The Silhouette CAMEO® is an electronic cutting tool for personal use. Like a home printer, it plugs into your PC or Mac® with a simple USB cable. However, instead of printing it uses a small blade to cut paper, cardstock, vinyl, fabric and more up to 12" wide and 10 feet long. The machine also has the ability to register and cut printed materials. Contents: The Silhouette CAMEO® ships with the following important items: • Silhouette electronic cutting tool • Silhouette Studio® software for Windows XP/Vista/7 and Mac® OS X 10.5.8 and higher • 51 exclusive cuttable designs • Power cable, USB cable • 12" cutting mat • Cutting blade • $10 gift card to the Silhouette Online Store • Basic Instruction Guide. Sets of the popular Gelatos also came in. Susan will love these in her mixed media classes. Also, an update on the Teresa Collins "BLING IT ON CANADA" event. Today is the last day to get good rates at the Hyatt. BOOK TODAY - HAVE A MINI "STAYCATION" during the event. The SPA at the Hyatt is amazing! Lynn will be teaching SHABBY CHIC BOOT CAMP starting in November. If you have always wanted to try your hand at this style of scrapbooking, then you will want to sign up for this class. The class will be once a month for 6 months. Susan has some fabulous classes planned for the next few months. She was published again in Scrapbook Trends! Yeah for Susan!!!! I will be ordering more wooden Witch Boots this week. If you want a set please let me know ASAP. There is an update for my iPhone app "SCRAPBOOK INC" ready for you to download. Changes are on the horizon. Gotta go to work - see ya there!

Hey Bloggerettes, New product arrived last week. Some fun stuff!! Lynn and I returned from our annual pilgrimage to Las Vegas/Henderson to attend the Teresa Collins "Inspiration Unlimited" event. It's nice to be the student and not the organizer for a change. We enjoyed our classes, the friends that we see every year, pool time and "ca-chinging". Nothing spectacular to report on that front :( Remember the Canadian "Bling It On Canada" event is November 15 & 16 with registration on the evening of the 14th at the Hyatt. Pictures of 2 projects Teresa will be teaching shown above - she will also be teaching a Christmas mini album. If you are planning to attend the "Calgary Baby & Tot Show" at the BMO Center Oct 13-14 you are welcome to stop by "The Scrap Yard" booth #306. FYI: We have admission discount coupons at the store. We have lots of classes planned for the next 3 months. We are busy getting them all on the website class schedule. CHANGES: The store will now open at 11:00 AM (except Saturdays - still 10:00 AM) CIAO
