I have since, got my hair cut again. And, yes, OMG she's fat!(for all of those who have not ever seen a "full" photo of me lol)
That's right, it's my Birthday. I am PROUD to say I am 45 today. I consider it a blessing to wake up every morning so each day I grow a year old is good. So much has changed since last year at this time. WOW ! The store is going great. We have had good business but better than that I have met some of the nicest people. I have met some of those "lurkers" from PTI that I have encourage to "come out and play" as well as some local friends that I had no idea they shared the same passion as I. I have met ladies that have never scrap booked that spent an entire day with me on Friday working away in the classroom (and did some beautiful pages I must say)and have even started having some "regulars" all ready. I must say that I enjoy meeting everyone as much as I enjoy the store itself. I have been receiving boxes daily, one day I received 16 of 27 ! I just received 3 more last night and haven't had the opportunity to peak inside yet. I will tell all of you that if I don't have what you are looking for, let me know I will see what I can do. Of course, I can't always order everything (oh but I wish I could) but will do my best to meet everyone's needs. I am adding a Cross Stitch and Embroidery section to the store since I had several people request these material as I understand they are becoming more difficult to find.
The design team is hard at work and will be showing their creations with the My Mind's Eye Bloom and Grow line before long. Niki already showed a card for her High Hopes Challenge using some of the paper from this line. The paper kits are $ 8.99 each with the paper selling for $ .79 ea.and the accessory sheets for $1.99. Send me an email if your are interested in purchasing any of these items or others that you see on the blog. We are still working on the online store. I have ran into numerous roadblocks with this task but I am not giving up.
I will be back soon (I hope) with some photos of some of the new merchandise we have been receiving in the store. In the meantime, be sure to check out the design team blogs, they have all have some awesome post (I really like Nicole's post on organizing your scraps of left over paper). I am a little OCD when it comes to organization although if you could see me at this very moment you would not agree.
In closing, A friend of mine, Chrissi, has started a new blog, be sure to pop over and welcome her. Thanks for the birthday wishes Chrissi.
Thanks for checking in here at Precious Scraps. Bev
