Still time to come on down!

Hello everyone! I hope everyone survived Black Friday yesterday. If you did not make it to the store we were quite busy and had a blast with all our classes. We had yummy doughnuts and cider and one of our customers brought us a plate of gingerbread, pumpkin bread and brownies. There is still time to come in today for more classes and the great sale we are having. We are open from 8:00 to 6:00. The sale is 10% off all Christmas paper/embellishments, 20% off all clear stamps, 30% off all travel and baby paper/embellishments, 40% off all Heidi Grace/Cloud 9 and Lil Davis, and 50% off all Quickutz products. If you take any of our classes you get an additional 10% off. Today the classes are the Christmas explosion box, Uppercase Living gift making and the wonderful 3 handmade ornaments with gift box. Hope to see you here!!

OK girls, I need some feedback on this one. As most of you know we are a Quickutz Premier Store and we do a monthly Quickutz Workshop giving a free die to each participant. But we have noticed since Hobby Lobby started carrying Quickutz products, both our Quickutz sales and support has dropped considerably. So there is the question. Are you a Quickutz girl, where do you buy your supplies, have you attended any of our workshops, would you like to see a "Special" Quickutz Club or special promotions for loyalty, is there anything we can do or offer to help you enjoy your Quickutz more? Or would you be just as happy to see us offer another product?
It is our sincere desire to not just be your local scrapbook store, but to offer you the very best in scrapbook supplies and services. That being said, we really need some input on this one. Let us hear from you!!

Too much fun!!

We had a potluck crop tonight and we all had so much fun and ate so much I forgot to take pictures. We had 11 girls and every dish that was brought was delicious. Thanks to everyone for making it such a great night.

I actually got to work on one of the projects for our Santa's workshop that is coming up on the Friday and Saturday after Thanksgiving. I took a picture of it to tease everyone and make them want to come in take a look at it. Hope to see you in the store on Friday and/or Saturday. Big sale!!!!

Christmas is here!

We finally have most of the ChCheck Spellingristmas stuff out. We have several lines to choose from. We have the new SEI which has browns and burgundies and several patterns. We also have Reminisce, it is to die for. It has a pearlized look to it and it also has several 12x12 shapes, like an ornament, snowflake, and a piece of peppermint candy. If elegant is not your thing we got 2 lines that are very cute. The We R Memory Keepers Chrismtas line is pinks, blues, red, greens and has a fun vintage look. The Creative Imaginations line is just darn right cute with stockings, Christmas lights and snowmen.

We also have several awesome gift idea items in stock. We have the new Making Memories cordless design cutter in stock, the Slice. And for all those Quickutz junkies we have the new All-In-One storage binder that will hold all your Quickutz in one place. We have the new 12 inch Christmas border dies - trees, Christmas lights, and gingerbread men. If a calendar is your thing we have several Lang calendars to choose from, get one for a gift and one for yourself.

If you would like to make a digital scrapbook for someone and have it shipped to them or shipped to the store, check the link on our website that tells you all about the Stories By Everyone from Scrapbooks Etc.

Late night at the shop

Well here we are at the shop tonight cropping till we drop. Rebecca Peck, a lead Fiskateer, was here doing some make and takes and giving stuff away. I surprised her with a sign to welcome her using her favorite color purple and when she saw it she made the comment that purple was her favorite color and I told her that is why I made it that way. (Little did she know I had done some research on her blog to learn some fun facts - she also loves sweettarts) We had 5 Fiskateers here tonight - Lilly, Patti, Rebecca, Bettye and Kim.

Brenda and I are trying to set up this blog so we can keep everyone up to date with what fun things are going on at the store.
