Are You Up for a CHALLENGE? Yep, I said it!

I've wanted to start challenges for a long time now, but many of you know my life has been a whirlwind this last year! Well...I think it's time! We had so much fun with our Christmas in July Cropping Challenge that we will certainly keep those going at our crops!  Beginning Sunday, August 1 we will begin our online challenges! Woo Hoo! What's a challenge without a prize? Not a good one! LOL! I love giving prizes and hearing from you all. It's so fun to see everyones' creative talents as well! So get your creative caps on & think outside the box! Stay tuned for more info & the first challenge details...hmmmm :-)

On to other news and updates... We are nearing our Birthday...Anniversary or whatever you would like to call it.  I'm just going to say it's a reason to celebrate...and of course...another reason to play dress up & don  your tiara! Over the past year we have had visitors from near and far.  I thank each and every one of you for your continued love and support! You all have been my friends and so many of you have become an extended part of my family.  Nope...I'm not crying (you all know me sooooo well! - LOL!).  Anyway, I just wanted to take a moment to simply say " Thank You".

Today we had a visitor all the way from Australia! Her name was Tracey and she found our store from one of YOUR blogs! How cool is that?! Thank you :-).  We have extended our arms as far as Germany, Britain, Afghanistan, Canada, & now Australia! I know there's more (please forgive me if I didn't post), it's just exciting and wonderful to share and connect with so many around our beautiful world!  Tracey allowed me to take a photo with her so I just wanted to say "Thank you for coming in Tracey & Welcome to our Family!".
Tracey is our newest family member all the way from Australia!
I will be updating our calendar and sending out e-mails by next week! CHA is this week and I'm SURE you would rather I use my late night hours to place NEW ORDERS...RIGHT?! ;-)  I've already started and the fun is only just beginning! My hubby is even getting in on the action.  He's ready to start teaching so ladies get your glue sticks out! LOL! ;-)  I really enjoy having him home. :-)

We have a few classes listed on our calendar so be sure to check them out! There is a beautiful Christmas in July Card Class this Thursday! Intro to Tear Bears & Our Teen/Tween Crop are also scheduled and filling fast!  The Lovely Lavender Flower Soft Class is making an encore presentation by popular demand on Sunday, Aug.8! Call or stop in to reserve your spot(s)!  Spaces are limited and I promise you will have a wonderful time and certainly get your $$$ worth!

Hey Ivy, I haven't been able to get up to the store but I do check in with the blog. I am my mom's only caregiver, so I don't get away much. And Now my car is down. We have to buy a new one. What a pain. But I will get up to see you soon. I took a tear bear class from you several years back. So I was so glad you have opened the store. I'm happy that it's doing well for you.
Hugs, Jessica
