Thank You!

Oh My Goodness! I just HAD to take a moment to say THANK YOU to ALL of YOU for coming out to show your support for my Grand Opening! It was certainly just that! I never had a moment to sit...and why would I want to? My tiara enjoyed the attention! LOL!

I would like to send a very special Thank you from the bottom of my heart to Barbara Ellis for creating such a fabulous spread of food...I think I gained 10 pounds in 3 days! I also want to send a super special Thank you out to Tina Rivera who has worked extremely hard over the past few weeks. Tina also created the very special bookmark / calendars we gave away during our grand opening. I would also like to say Thank you to Cara Castro who not only has brought lunch (which has been sooooo appreciated...because I stay hungry!!! LOL) but also made my favorite pumpkin bread, brownies, cookies & donated her time to help get some things out in the store. I have some pretty fabulous friends. Thank you :-).

The Store is OPEN!

It has been a busy busy week! Very exciting to say the least. I didn't think we were going to make my eyes were seeing double on more than one occasion! I entered sku numbers into the system one by one!!! I had the most wonderful helpers :-). They tirelessly stuck by me and their efforts are greatly appreciated.

We opened on Friday and I got a bit teary eyed to see the support from all of my friends I have met along the way. Thank you for the support and love each of you have shown, in so many different ways.

This past weekend was absolutely FABULOUS! I never had a moment to sit! The time passed so quickly! I loved meeting many new people and catching up with my friends, that I haven't had time to talk to, over the past few weeks. I quickly learned that I'm going to need to accommodate some of my gentleman customers! I must work on "the man area" SOON! I enjoyed seeing all of the fabulous hubby's out shopping with their wives this weekend! Many were U.S. Navy and I hope you all know how I feel about that! Hooyah! Go Navy! :-)

I have been trying to get all of my new goodies to the floor as quickly as possible. I will try to download pics tomorrow, but the New Flower Soft is HERE! I have lots of colors, including the new Polar White! I have kits, stamps, toppers, etc. Come by and check out the video display!

Abbey Road will also be on the floor this week. This line is absolutely BEAUTIFUL! I'm expecting my Prima and Basic grey orders this week, too! I can't wait to get more boxes with sku numbers! LOL!

Classes begin soon and our first crop will be Scrap Pink...cropping for a cure! I'll have more news about the classes and crops this week so stay tuned! :-)
