Another month just flying by! Has it really been another month since the last calendar?
Please note the change of hours on Saturday, August 9. This applies to that day only.
I received a lot of positive feedback on our birthday open house. I thought it was smooth and enjoyable. I sold out of a few of the extra kits. I sold kits to several people who were unable to attend. That seemed to work well. I sent pictures of each station to all those who attended and to those that purchased kits. If you didn't receive these pictures, let me know and I will resend them.
We have already started planning our next open house which will be full of Christmas and holiday ideas. It is scheduled for Saturday, September 20, from 10-4. I hope you will be able to join us for the fun. Don't forget you can prepay and have a set of kits saved for you.
I have preordered the 3 new lines of Graphic 45 that are the summer release. They should be shipping in August. Very cute sets! There is a Christmas set, a vintage set, and a pet set. I'll let you know when they arrive.
Dies are still the hottest selling item. I received a shipment of Tattered Lace dies. They make gorgeous cards! I still have a good selection of dies left. Be sure to stop by and look at them if you haven't seen them before. Several customers have made wonderful cards using them. They really cut well, too. You can put yourself on a special order list for them if you want certain ones.
We are selling the Tattered Lace magazines like hotcakes. If you are interested, you can order monthly or put yourself on the standing order list. The ideas in these magazines are invaluable and extremely creative.
I have also placed a preorder with my distributor for some of the newly released Spellbinders. These won't ship until October. I preordered so I would be able to get them in before they run out. Let me know if you want any, so I can increase my order.
The August Stamp of the Month Board should be arriving in the next week and a half. I received a stamp shipment from them last week. It is a mix of all kinds of stamps.
We have some new and interesting classes scheduled this month. We would love to have you join us. Please be sure to sign up by the prepay date. This allows the instructors plenty of time to prepare the materials.
The instructors have asked me to find out from you what classes and techniques you want to learn. As our customer base constantly changes, we try to meet your crafting needs. We have taught so many classes in the 10 years. We probably need to repeat some of them so newer customers can learn those techniques. We are open to most requests. Please give me feedback for classes by email, phone or when you stop by.
Jessica continues with the Monthly G45 books. She rescheduled the July book and the August book is near the end of the month.
Amanda is doing a flower card class and a Christmas card using glass slides.
Betty will be quilling two Christmas cards.
Lenora will be teaching a Heartfelt Creations card class.
I will be teaching the following: Stamping 101, Fall Cards, and Masculine Cards.
Well, that about does it for now. I hope you will stop by to shop or visit or both.
Take care and I hope to see you soon.
