It's officially fall! I am waiting for the leaves to show their splendid colors. I'm not sure the trees know it's fall.
I guess we'll all be gearing up for our busy holiday season.
With that thought in mind, I want to remind you of our Christmas Open House this Saturday, October 3, from 10-4. We will be making 8 Christmas cards. The cost is $17.12. Please pay upon entry. CASH PREFERRED.
Be sure to bring your basic tool kit(www.lovinghandscreations.net) or at least sharp scissors, wet and dry adhesives, foam dots. No adhesives will be furnished.
Remember, there is parking in the rear of the store. You will need to drive down the left side of the building. You may also park in the front of Mother's Helper, the business to the left of the store.
We hope you will be able to join us. Call if you have any questions.
Mark your calendars for Nov. 20. Debbie from Paper Sweeties will be teaching two sets of classes featuring her stamps and dies. The first set of classes will be from 2-3 and 3-5. The second set will be from 5:30-6:30 and 6:30-7:30. She will do two projects in each class. One class is fall and the other is holiday. Each class is $18. If you sign up for both classes, I will give you a $2 discount. There are only 10 slots per class, so be sure to sign up and prepay early. Your slot is NOT secure until you pay for it. She is sending me display boards with the projects she'll be teaching. Be sure to stop by to see them. They should arrive next week.
In addition to these classes, she will be bringing some of her stamps and dies to sell. If you want something specific, let me know by November 1 and I can send in a small order so she can deliver it when she comes to the store. I have a catalog you can view.
The Memory Box/Poppy Stamps book parties went well. I have just placed my third order with them. It should be arriving in a couple of weeks. Be sure to look at the catalogs when you are in the store. Let me know if there is anything you want. Prepayment is required.
We have some new items from Impression Obsession as well. I will be placing another order with them in a couple of weeks. I just received two new catalogs from them.
Please check the calendar that follows for class dates and times. Let me know if you have any requests for classes. Remember, you must prepay for a class by the date on the calendar.
I also wanted to let you know that I have two machines for sale. Check them out when you come to the open house.

2. 12x12 Creatopia Xyron Machine: Used only a few times.Comes with extra adapters, CUTZ Starter Kit, cutting blades, scoring tool, and Border Patternz Starter Kit.
This machine can laminate, place adhesive, cut and score lines, and emboss border patterns. $100
With the holiday season approaching, start talking up gift certificates from Loving Hands. We can make them in all denominations. I know husbands aren't crazy about coming into the store. Tell them they can call in an order and I can mail it to them. They make great gifts for your crafting friends, too.
Well, I think that does it for now.
I hope to see you soon. Thanks for all of your support.
