What a perfect way to enjoy the last crop of the year.  I absolutely love putting on these events and being able to enjoy spending the time with such a wonderful group of ladies.  We packed in 28 ladies and I have been approached on more than one occasion to expand.  I don't know what 2011 holds, but I know it's all in God's hands...and he's never steered me wrong! :-)  I promise I'm not going to start getting all mushy (cause I'm already tearing up while I'm typing!

Last Chance for our 50/50 Giveaway! Stop in Today!

I thought I'd shoot out a quick post to inform some and remind others about a wonderful opportunity to help breast cancer warriors in our very own low country area!  During the month of October, Scrappin' Happily Ever After has encouraged a 50/50 giveaway that will benefit breast cancer research.  We appreciate everyone's donations thus far and wanted to call for everyone that would still be interested in participating.  Here's how it works:

  • Donate $1 for each ticket that you will receive.
  • Hang on to your ticket(s) as you will need them to claim your gift!
  • On Saturday, October 30 (at close of business) we will draw one ticket. We will post the ticket number here and on Facebook.
  • The person with the lucky ticket number will receive a gift certificate to shop at "Scrappin Happily Ever After" in the amount of HALF of whatever is donated, as our gift to YOU! 
  • The more donations we receive for the ta-tas...The more moohlah for YOU, too!
  • The other half of the funds will be donated to the lowcountry affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the cure!
  • It's a win win for all of us! Be a part and please donate today.

We are currently up to $141 in donations! That's a $70.50 split and I know this is such an important platform in so many of our lives.  Let's band together and make a difference! Stop in today or Saturday to make a donation & get your tickets.  No matter what- we all come out winners, but you might even get a fabulous gift to top it all off! You can't beat that! Let's save the ta-ta's! :-)

The ladies had a great time with Vince teaching his first class this past Sunday.  I was "banned" from being in the classroom, but the ladies said he did a fabulous job!  I saw their pages and heard all of the "oohs" "ahhs" and the CLAPPING! What do I have to do to get APPLAUSE???!!! LOL!  I'm glad everyone had a great time...and yes ladies, you blew his head up soooo big that he has already started sketching his next class! ;-)

By request I added my cracked glass vintage holiday card class to this weekend schedule!  If you love vintage as much as I do, then join us Saturday for this fun technique class! Don't forget to check the calendar for class updates! You never know when we might add another class by request!

Bethany has a Basic Grey mini album this week and will be repeating the fabulous fall cards on November 4th.

October Updates!

Our Fall Yard Sale was a success thanks to all of our consignors who took the time to clean out their craft rooms AND all of our shoppers who came out to find those fabulous treasures! There were some great buys and my hubby says that I might have been one of my best customers! LOL! My hubby thanks you all for helping me add even more ;-).  Our big seller was Pam R.! She earned quite a few extra credits, too!  If you are ready to start cleaning out those closets for our spring sale, get your number now & start putting things away! 

We have all kinds of classes planned over the next few months! Here is a peek at our classes coming up this weekend...
