Happy New Year.....Almost

Hey everyone, Happy New Year.  I want to thank everyone for a great year at Precious Scraps.  The business continues to grow and prosper but more importantly my friendships continue to grow.  I so enjoy getting to meet everyone and chat when you come in.  I am a "people" person and love having the opportunity to talk with customers from all over as well as locally.  I want to again, thank you for your support and encouragement as the business continues to grow.

Don't forget we will be having an all night crop tonight to ring in the new year.  We will get started around 5 pm and stop when the last person leaves.  The admission is a snack.  Since I will be up all night the store will be closed tomorrow so I can get a little rest and then start inventory.

I had previously mentioned that we might start closing on Sunday's but for right now we will remain open so be sure to stop in.

As I mentioned, I will be doing inventory over the weekend so that means BIG SALES next week.  We need to clear out in order to make room for new merchandise arriving in February from the CHA show.  If you happen to see a line that you are interested in seeing us carry be sure to let me know.

We are receiving monthly shipment from We Are Memory Keepers so be sure to stop in and see the new Winter, Valentine and Family lines that will be put out next week. 

Again Thank you and everyone have a Happy, Safe and Prosperous New Year.  As always, thanks for stopping by Precious Scraps

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas.......

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  I spent the day with my family which was terrific.  With everyone's busy lifestyles it is so difficult to get everyone together at once. Thank goodness for Holiday's.  Here is a pic of our family along with the new additions of step-siblings, and the exclusion of my oldest brother and his family (they were in St. Louis for the Holidays.  My mom remarried April of 2009 after my father passed in 2000.  She met a wonderful man named Ron and it has been such a pleasure getting to know his children.  It was truly a Thankful time to be together.

Meeting my Great-Niece Teagan Grace for the first time.  She is 6 weeks old in this picture.  
Over Larry's Fall Break he worked on a flower bed for me at the store.  He enclosed our sign so we could add lighting as well as some beautiful flowers (in the Spring).  I love the way it turned out and it really lights the way for everyone to find the store in the evenings. I can't wait to plant some beautiful petunias in the spring to spill over the sides.  These photos were taken just before it's completion but I think you get the idea.  Thank you Larry, you are the best!

From the entrance to the store. It looks so pretty all lit up at night. 

Here are a few projects we've been working on around the store.  Some are from classes and some are product samples, hope you enjoy.  Be sure to check out the December calendar to the left.
