Weekly Newsletter Sent!

Just sent out the weekly newsletter, and am going through a very long check list of things 'to do' before leaving in 2 very short days. Yikes!

I want to do one more post before I go of a 2 PG LO I did a few weeks ago. I just need to take a picture of the second page...

Off to get more things crossed off my list! Check out the newsletter! Do something crafty today or visit the store!

Playing with the Blog...

Well after spending a few minutes I was able to get the blog's features back, such as the blog list of brands sold at The Scrapbox, other blogs I follow (And now I can again!) and I found a very basic background that barely suits my needs for the moment...but serve it will because it seems that time is very hard to come by in my life these days. I mean...I have as much as anyone else is given so I shouldn't complain!

I will need to learn more on how to pretty up the background while at the same time properly represent what the Scrapbox Image(tm) is. Don't you ever wish you could take a snapshot of what is inside your head and say "HERE! This is what I want! I don't want to have to explain it!" Oh well - until such groovy tech is invented I will have to do it the other way.

I have been using Facebook more for quick updates on what is coming in to the store or what has arrived. These last two weeks have seen a great influx of product to the store and we are bursting at the seams. If you haven't been in awhile, you may want to come down and check us out! The Scrapbox also has a Facebook Group dedicated to the store so just do a search for the Scrapbox and join up. It won't hurt a bit I promise!

Ok - going to work on more promotion for my upcoming event with Melissa Frances! I plan on having that up on the blog in the next 12 hours. That is my goal!

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and got to nap lots after a big meal! =)
