If you have never attended one of these events, I strongly encourage you do go.

Gina and Lynn of First Impressions Imprinting host the most amazing crops I've every seen. They literally jam-pack and entire weekend scrap into one fun-filled exciting day. They've certainly got it down pat! The energy in the room, the food, music, prizes, and amenities were so well put together and thought out. I was very impressed with what these girls can do. Not to mention they create the most amazing imprinted albums I've ever seen... and reasonably priced too. Check them out here: I have booklets at the store if anyone is interested too. Anyway, they host 3 crops per year... and this year, their September crop is a Weekend get-a-way. Oh, I can't wait!!!

Gina and Lynn were both kind enough to invite me to stop by and introduce myself to the group. Most of the girls had no idea that there was a local place to shop their scrapbooking papers. I have to tell you, this group of girls were so warm and inviting... and talented scrappers too. I was honored to have been able to meet their acquaintances. I got to meet some new faces, and chat with some of our regular customers too. I didn't want to leave... but when I did, I was soooo inspired to sit down and scrap myself.

There was no scrapping for me afterwards. I had to go to Lowe's to get paint. Yep, we are finally painting our scrap-room.

Talk to you all later,
Happy Scrappin'

The Weekend has Arrived!

I would have posted a bit more here this week, if I had the time. I've had a heck of a week. My youngest will NOT sleep at night. I think she hates being in her crib. I don't blame her, I wouldn't want to be veiwing the world from behind bars either.

Aside from the terrible 2's in our home, Abby and the DMAC swim team has had a great season. A BIG CONGRATS to the team this year! The individual championship meet is next week. That will wrap up the season. Now she wants to try Karate.

So, my computer has crashed a few times this week, I lost all of my EBay listing files on Turbo-Lister. Now my computer is throwing "critical errors" and the imfamous "blue screen of death" has appeared half a dozen times. I guess it is time to start shopping around for a new laptop.

To make matters worse, I had a glitch on our websites shopping cart. Thank goodness for Angie and Melony. They were able to fix it and get things back up and running on that end.

I'm happy to say that we are now accepting non-PayPal credit card payments on our SSL server. How exciting for those of you that don't like PayPal!

I'm still working tirelessly on the website. I just updated my "About Us" page. It's pretty long, but it gives to the entire story about how our little business came about.

New classes will be added this weekend on our website. I've had many requests for Tear Bear Classes, so I will be picking dates for that for next month. Be sure to check out our events.

We will also be having a "BIG SURPRISE" sale that will be announced last minute in March. Info will be sent out via email and posted here and on our website.

Website Updates

Our website is finally getting new products added! Who would of thought that a website could be so much work? LOL. I've also been revamping the categories to make it more "user friendly" and easier to navigate through the product lines. Be sure to stop buy and check it out.
