It's Sunday night - do you know where your LSS owner is??

Back home safely after a very fun christmas potluck party hosted by the Rockland ATC Ladies - I had a very good time and I'm still full from all the yummy foods! Emma did fall asleep on the way home (as expected) and she proudly showed off her ATC's to her daddy that she received in trade today. Will have to see if I can remember to post my ATC for November tomorrow when I get to the store and my camera.

*As a side note, people often call the store when it's off-business hours and are suprised to hear me pick up the phone - I'm there quite often when the store is closed just to catch up on all that picky paperwork! But not Sundays - those are just for Family and Friends =)

Starting tomorrow is Tim Holtz's 12 Days of Christmas Tags - from Dec 1 to Dec 12 he will be posting step by step instructions on how to use his products with his techniques and products making beautiful Christmas Themed Tags - presumably to put on a gift to someone this season. I highly recommend you check this out because in Jan or Feb I`ll be holding more Tim Holtz classes with these techniques! Yes indeed! There is a link on the left of this blog to go straight to his blog!

Anyways, just thought I would drop a line here since it`s been nearly 10 days since my last post and that`s just dreadful. Hope you had a good weekend and a safe one.

Update of many things...

So much has happened in the last week it makes my head spin!

We celebrated this past Saturday at The Scrapbox our First Anniversary and it was a wonderful day full of good people having a good time! Would like to thank my mother for taking the time and making the trek all the way up here from 'Caygeon to spend the weekend with us. Also to my fab staff - Divas and Angels who spent the day with us too - you are a huge part of this store and success! And last, but certainly not least my Studio Members who have supported myself and The Scrapbox for the past year. Thank you for everything and I promise to do my best so that we are around for a long long time!

Also just arrived! Canadian Scrapbooker Fall/Winter Edition in which our own Diva Stephanie Pouliot will be featuring her first published layout (check out page 72!). For sale now in store, but to add to the fun next Wed evening, Nov 26 from 6 until 9pm Stephanie will be holding a magazine signing in our own Scrapbox Studio. Come on down and have a free cup of coffee and chat with your fellow members!

Also in store now...

I've done a quick flip through and there seems to be a fair size of the magazine dedicated to Stamps and the art of stamping. An excellant volume for scrapbookers of any level of skill (quit wrinkling your nose at me Kim!).

Love to see you soon!

Happy Anniversary, happy anniversary...

As of Nov 10, it will be an official One Year Anniversary for The Scrapbox and I would like to first and foremost thank my family, customers and staff for all the amazing support over, what experts all claim to be, the most difficult year. I'm not so sure about that because most of my memories include lots of laughs, hugs and good memories of good people who have come in and out of my door. I've been honoured by you more than I can possibly say.

To celebrate I would like to invite you all down to the store this week for Free Make & Takes (a new one each day) on Wed, Thurs & Friday which will primarily feature The Slice!
