Are you as tired of snow as I am? I am ready for life to get back to its usual routine. While being stuck at home I have been coming up with some fun ideas for the store for the next several months. Maybe the time with being stuck in one place is a good thing. Check in often to our blog, our web site, and our facebook page for all the fun activities that will be coming up.
Be sure to read the articles below closely. Some might look like things that have been in the newsletter before, but I have added more details about many of the topics. I don't want you to miss anything.
There are going to be so many changes with the store and happenings in 2011 so hold on to your hat and make sure to stay posted through our website, blog or facebook for all the latest information.

|Monthly Kits |
As I stated in first newsletter of 2001, this year will be full of changes that I hope will improve my ability to serve my customers. One thing that I noticed at Winter CHA is that many manufacturers have started creating monthly kits that are as good as the ones that I have been offering for the past 5 years. After much contemplation, I have decided to end my monthly kit program with February, 2011 Kit.
I know that many of my clients love the ease of putting together kits. In my kit's place I will be offering kits designed by Basic Grey, Little Yellow Bicycle, Bo Bunny, and Fancy Pants. I feel these companies offer a fun kit that you will be pleased with. Basic Grey produces a kit every month. The other 3 companies produce a kit with every paper release. You can sign up for any of the companies. I will also have the these kits available for sale on a one time basis in the store if there are kits left after the pre-orders.
|Basic Grey Page Kits|
Available in March
Basic Grey offers a wonderful monthly page kit. Each month's kit is based on a new line of Basic Grey paper and includes the paper as well as a different fun embellishments. It is basically designed as a class in a bag. We have had many request to sell these kits in our store. Beginning with the March kit, we have 4 kits still available. If you would like to make sure you get a kit each month, just sign up. The cost of the kit is $18 per month paid in 2 month increments.

|Demo Days and Happy Hour |
Even though many of you are experienced scrapbooks, I am intrigued how often I hear comments like "I just never learned to stamp" or I am bow tieing challenged." Or you are beginner scrapbooker and just want opportunity to learn the basics. One of my goals in 2011 is to help my clients become better crafters.
Demo Days will be 2 Saturdays a month from 2 to 4. They will be a come and go type event and they are free. The demo will feature a technique that one of my teachers feel people need help with. You will have the opportunity to get one on one help from an expert on something that gives you trouble or you always wanted to learn.
Happy Hour will be the 2nd Thursday of every month from 5 to 7. They are designed as come and go projects that will provide an opportunity to learn something while gathering with friends. The Happy Hour projects will have a cost of $5 or less and will be available as long as supplies last. You can call ahead and reserve a kit to make sure to get one. The teachers have already come up with some great projects that I know you will love.
|Spring Garage Sale |
Our spring Garage sale will be Saturday, April 16th. The cost of a table is $5. If you stay with your table, I will take 5% of your sales, but you can receive your sales in a check or store credit. If you leave your items for my staff to watch, I will take 10% of your sales and you can only get store credit.
Everyone can sign up for only one table. I will quit taking sign ups on April 8th. After the 8th if there are any tables that have not been reserved, I will allow people to buy a second table. Upon payment you will receive your seller number. Everyone will be getting a new seller number.
