On line Class

Was checking out different sites that I follow on the computer and found this great on line class. It was listed under Zutter. That is the book making system that I carry in the store.  Well let me tell you I did not hesitate to sign up for this great looking course in bookmaking by one of the Zutter Sisters.  Her name is Donna Salazar and she has an online class coming out April 21st. She really creates some wonderful books and her flowers are absolutely amazing.

 So if you are interested go to the the zutter site and check it out.  I will update you once the class starts but I am really looking forward to taking the class.
Let me know what you think about it.

Upcoming Events.

Please check out the calendar upcoming for March. April will plan to be a busy month.  We are planning a Garage sale!  Do you have lots of scrap booking and craft making tools in great condition and don't use anymore?  If you do start getting them ready for the sale at the Country Scrappin Store coming up in April?

Keep checking this site for more details but it plans to be a great event.

In a addition we will be having National Scrap Book Day on the First Week of May!
So mark your calendars and stay tune for more details.

With Spring and Easter just around the corner come to the store for new spring papers. They are in and out, boy are the great.  Everyone seems to love them.  In addition I have also recieved some new religious papers in.  Ask and I have placed it in the store.  Have some new additional Karen Foster papers coming in to the store this week.  So be sure to stop by soon!

Christmas is Coming

If you don't know the holiday is around the corner and you have got to get all those things done.  If you need to get a last minuet gift what about a gift certificate or come on it to see some of the pre made little books and such that are in the store.

Give the gift that keeps giving through out the year with a mini albumn for the Grand Parents, or what about some type of orgainization system.  Have some available in the store and they won't break the piggy bank.

Still have a few limited editions of the Quickutz Holiday set for this year.  They are great and make mini books in a flash, another great holiday gift for friends and family.

Well we are winding down to the final days befor the 25th so be sure to come in for some last minuet gifts.

Have a wonderful Holiday if I don't get a chance to get back on line befor the 25th. In addition the store will be closed from 2 pm on Christmas Eve till January 7th, 2010 - so if you need to get any supplies befor then come on in!

Thanksgiving Eve!

So, it is thanksgiving eve and everyone is busy getting everything ready for the big Turkey Day!  This annual holiday is followed by Black Friday  and great shopping. I don't know about you but I am very tired of the endless commercials on the television!


Reminder I will be closed for Thanksgiving Day the following Friday and Saturday.  The Elves will be decorating the store for the holidays!  Winter hours will open at 11 am Tuesday through Saturday.

Open House:
  As I have said I will have a Open House the first of December through the fifth.  We have gotten in lots and lots of new papers, so I need to make room.  I did a rough count and came up with 80 different papers.  Some of the papers are holiday and fall lines plus much, much, more! GREAT BIG SALE THE WEEK OF OPEN HOUSE - plus cider and cookies how can you go wrong?

Riley & Sophie Moose Stamp Updates:

Good news!  Riley has found his new home along with Sophie and his new owner has sold me some new ones.  The new ones include the following:
bath tub Riley, sherlock homes, nurse ( sophie), Christmas Riley, Cafe Riley, plus more can't seem to remember them all.  Since the move to his new home his price has increase a little more.  I thought it was worth it, because like you, I sure love the little guy.  I also have copic ( alcohol ink professional) pens which are in selected browns to color your Rileys and Sophies and some primary color copic pens.

COPIC PENS; http://www.copic.com

For those of you that don't know what these pens are you need to come into the store for a demo.  Also check out the copic site(above).  The great things about these pens is that unlike any other pens you can blend them on the paper directly, from tip to tip and also from another medium like plastic.  The are green friendly and totally refillable
plus you can replace the brush and taper ends out. They have over 250 colors.  They are permanent and acid free.  Work on wood, plastic, paper and more.  Permanent too. They add details like you would not believe!  In addition you can refill with a clear liquid over 10 times before you have to add the specific color refill. They come in 3 different stiles.  I have chosen the smaller barrel  size ( ciao) for the store. You can order specific colors once you get into them plus other type pens. One type pen even does air brushing.  Check out the web site plus  read some of the magazine adds. My research showed that copic is the choice for approximately 80 % or better of the designers out there.  Those of you who shop regularly at the store know that I don't  recommend a product that I don't like or haven't used my self.  I have been using, my ciaos  since march of this year and have not had to refill any and the results?  Well, you be the judge come in and see what you think.

Anyway, I am rambling, and don't want to bore you so come on in Next week for our Open House, shopping and new papers embellishments and of course Quickutzs. New dies will be in along with this years Holiday Set.  They are going fast !

Don't each to much Turkey.

Happy Pre Thanksgiving Day

Since I may not get another chance to write to my blog until after Turkey Day I wanted to do so now.

Thank you all so much for this year.  I am very thankful for all of your smiling faces and the friendships we have formed.  Wanted to also inform you that the store will be closed from Nov. 26 till December 1st.  Please don't be upset if you see my windows covered it is just that the Elves have promised to come and decorate the windows up for me for my Open House starting on December first!

Open House Details:
 We will have some really great windows for the holiday season and also some special prices the first week of December so be sure to stop by and have a cup of cider and a cookie or two.

Can't let you know what the specials are going to be but I am sure you will like them!

Have a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving.
