NEW PRODUCT!!!! Every day is like Christmas.

Hi again,

This has been a very busy and very exciting week. If you popped into the store, you saw the whirlwind of activity of us getting the new products out on the floor. We got a whole new software program on Wednesday and luckily, we figured it out fast. If only all vendors would send complete invoices with orders so I could enter and price everything. There is a wonderful Valentine collection from Great Impressions that I can't put out because I have no clue how much the stamps are.

The Good News. All new SEI Ally's Wonderland.

Bo Bunny Smitten line along with their word chipboard albums.

Adhesives, stamp pads, pens, Judith Stamps and Karen Foster. The shelves are filling up with all sorts of goodies. I got in the project we will be making for the classes and should have the samples up soon. We got great packs of precut chipboard ready to be embellished along with Rhonna Farrar $1 clear stamps.

There are still a few seats available for the New Years Day crop. Don't miss out on this fun way to start the New Year. I'll be here answering the phones on Monday if you want to call to reserve a spot.

The bad news. Creative Cafe has been delayed due to their company being closed this past week. My order didn't get processed before they closed so it won't be shipped until hopefully next week. So, unfortunately the first two Creative Cafe Happy hours will have to be postponed. I want my Cafe! Anyways, I'll stop whining.

Merry Christmas!

Hi everyone,

We actually managed to stay away from the store for a day. Of course, we still had many conversations about what we still need to do to get the store in shape for all the product I ordered and all the equipment my husband ordered. We need to figure out where to put the 4 PC's for the digital photo ordering and the digital classes. So much to do, so little time.

We had a nice brunch today with friends and the kids got to open some gifts. They can't wait for Santa tonight. I guess we better hurry up and make some cookies.

I hope your holidays were spent enjoying your family and that you got lots of photos.

Tomorrow Night BIG Changes are Happening!

I just wanted to post a quick update. Tomorrow evening after we sign all the legal documents, we are having a few friends drop by the store to do a little impromptu remodel. Ok, basically we are moving some racks around. I want to give the store a whole new look and feel so I think that this moving will be a good start.

Luckily, some new product was delivered too! I got a great box of sports papers and stickers and also some new very strong adhesive. Can't wait to see what the UPS man brings tomorrow. So stop by this weekend if you are out doing errands and see some of the changes we have in store at the new Photo Scraps store.
