Update of sorts...

The last Scrapbox Yard Sale was a huge success this past Saturday, with Venders and customers looking very satisfied as goodies exchanged hands and found their way to new happy scrappin homes! If you missed out this past Saturday no worries - next Spring will bring another Yard Sale and a whole slew of new bargains to be had! Stay tuned!

For those of you who did see me on Saturday, apparently I was looking a bit worse for wear. I was fighting off a cold all last week and by Saturday the cold had the upper hand. I made it through the day however with the awesome support of my staff and customers and while Sat night wasn't fun (it was the coughing phase) my dear husband muscled some foul tasting cough syrup into me (it was absolutly vile) I was able to get some sleep. On Sunday he took Emma out for a few hours allowing me more sleep and rest and today if feel much improved...yay to thoughtful husbands!

This week is shaping up to be an awesome week! I still have FREE Scrapbook & Cards Today Magazines to give to my Scrapbox Members (don't forget your membership card) and if you don't have a membership - ask yourself why not?!? Tons of bennies, discounts and a free magazine 4 times a year! Call us at 613-745-2215 for more info!

Hope you all have a great week!

Love Fabric? Check it out...

I got this tip from the coordinator MaryAnn:

Hi Jenn, Saw your scrapbookers group on Facebook and thought some of your members would love to go to this charity event - OTTAWA FABRIC FLEA MARKET 2009. So many great bits and pieces are available there to incorporate in scrapbooking - from vintage buttons to trims, etc. etc. I'm sure crafters will be inspired and the school needs the fundraising, so it's all win win. Please check out the link. Hope you'll find this worth sharing with your group.

Ok for some reason the link isn't embedding itself nicely into the post so just copy and paste it into your address bar...sorry!

Here is what her facebook says...

Saturday, Oct. 17th
10 am - 2 pm
Glebe Community Centre
175 Third Avenue at Lyon

Vintage and new!

Fabric, patterns, needlework supplies, knitting & weaving yarns, buttons, ribbons, etc. You never know what treasures you will find!

All this and more at the 15th Fabric Flea Market - held to benefit Cambridge Street Community School.

This is an event NOT to be missed! Prepare to see a lot of happy women in one place. Have a bite at The Pantry - yum!

Crafts, Charity and Children - who could resist this combination? Not me! I'd have gone myself if I wasn't hosting a rockin crop at The Scrapbox.

Pass along the good word...

Yard Sale this Saturday Sept 26th!

This is the last Yard Sale of the year at The Scrapbox and you don't want to miss it!

Starting at 9am on Sat Sept 26th, the door will fly open and Jenn will get out of the way of all the bargain hunters (it's just safer that way) and then the fun starts! Stamps, tools, paper, storage, totes, stickers, rub ons, flowers, beads and baubles galore! You cold find that older paper line that you need to finish off the layout you have been working on! Who knows? Everything goes at the Yard Sale!

Want to be a vender? Want to purge the scrap room and get fat credit at The Scrapbox?

There are still spaces available - get a free half of an 8 foot table to sell your wares and please the hubby at the same time! Call us at 613-745-2215 to reserve your spot now!

Come Play!

Wed Sept 9th at 6pm is when I show off all the projects that I was priveledged to create at Creative Escapes - want to hear what went on? Hear the stories that aren't on the blogs? Join us in the Studio!
