Limited Edition Retreat Kits Available

We had such a blast at the retreat we wanted to offer everyone our limited edition retreat kits that our teachers designed for us. They are 9.99 each and they are going fast. If you don't want to wait you can call me to reserve one at 845/621-3119. We originally had 4 kits but one sold out it was so awesome.

After a full week and then some we are still recovering from the retreat. We have had so much positive feedback. I can't wait till we have another one.

The message board has been buzzing with all of our members working on the October Halloween challenge.

We have a few changes to our November schedule for a complete up to date calendar you can check our Meetup board:

Hope to see you on our board

Discover new ways to Scrap....with us

We are still recovering after an amazing weekend. We had so much fun. Judy was our grand prize winner. We enjoyed Ali so much can't wait to see her again. This week we have a lot of new stuff in the store. We tried to hold as much stuff back as we could so that everyone at the retreat got the newest things. Also if you missed the retreat we still have a few retreat kits available for purchase. I will have those pictures up this week as well. The album above is some of the pictures that were taken by Sue. If you want to down load them you can for a limited time.

Check out our meetup board and sign up to continue the crop. Add us to your favorites so you can check back often.

It is Saturday morning and we have survived our first day. Sorry I couldn't right sooner, but I was busy and I couldn't get to the computer until this morning. Sue took some pictures that you see above you in the slide show. We are having a great time and I am glad that Ali was able to join us. She is Awesome!!!!. Barb did some make and takes and as you can see we have a fully stocked mini store with some great new stuff that we didn't even have in the store. Today Ali is booked and we have scrappers going until they can't go no more. This morning the doors opened up at 7am with the first scrappers. Not really sure what time everyone went to bed yet, but I bet it was late. We had alot of raffels and prizes that we gave away. We really had alot of fun. Well I have to go. Check back later to see what I post. You can join iin online- Turn off your phone set up a chair and start scrappin!! Julie

All Packed Up!

We are all packed up!! The store is 95% empty. This is just a sampling of what we did. It was hard to take pictures and pack. I am hoping to be more diligent at the crop. I don't know If I am going to be able to take pictures while we are putting this together but I will try and take pictures on Friday Morning when People start to come in.

The walls look so empty. You can't believe how much more stuff we ordered for the crop-We have so many surprises and goodies plus raffles and more. I had so much fun planning this. Sooo many trips. I wish we had one big moving truck with men to move everything, and unpack too. Maybe one day. LOL Well, join us this weekend on-line while we try to bring the crop to you. For all who missed this one there is always the next one.

Can't keep this on the shelves-hurry before its GONE

Wow, Barb and I have been so busy. We have been getting ready for the retreat that is NEXT weekend. We have lots of goodies and surprises for all of our guests. Don't forget to get your money in for the retreat. If the money isn't in we will be going to the waitlist. And for all who can't come to our retreat the store will be closed Thursday Afternoon, 3 pm October 12 and we will not open again until Tuesday October 17th. For all those taking the ALI Edwards Favorite photo class make sure you have the following:
  • 8 5x7 photos
  • 4 horizontal 4x6 photos

Ok well, last week was a great week. We had so much fun at Edith's Morning Class

It was nice to see everyone bright eyed and ready to scrap. You can check out our message board for more photos of the class.

We had a great kids class this past weekend. Nancy, who teaches kids all week loves to come in and teach our Kids class. She really does some creative things planned for the kids. Nancy also has some really great Halloween layouts classes coming up. I think Nancy enjoyed doing this layout more than the kids did.

Crop-Tober is going to be great- we got great so much happening. We got some awesome layouts for our first challenge. Everyone should come to the store to vote. I extended the deadline until Friday so get them in. We got some great product in and we can't keep it on our shelves- get it before its gone. Tune in next week I will be upload all of our crop photos while we are there. Cyber Crop with us all weekend long. I will be posting to our blog all weekend. As long as I have my laptop with me.
