Tools, Toys, Paper and FUN!!!

Got a visit from the Fed Ex guy this morning! Opened the box and there they were! Scor-Pals, Scor-Mats, the new heavier duty Scor-Tools, and a little surprise that I'll share with you next time you're in.
Michelle has worked really hard to get the store looking good and you should come tell her what a great job she did. Everyone needs to be appreciated, right? She filled 3 displays with new paper and embellishments, got the Scrap-Ma-Bobs and Glue Gliders out, and cleaned up The Mom's mess in the crop room. Having Nicole and Zoe here was a BIG help! Those girls are amazing! Okay, so being their Grandma may play a small part in that opinion, but so far, anyone who knows them has not disagreed.

Just in case you missed the news...Be sure to check out the Calendar and sign up for the spectacular classes, make-n-takes, and the Friday crop during our CHRISTMAS IN JULY event. Click on each class in the calendar for a description of the fun you'll have. I attached a list just to help you guys who are like me on the computer skills level -- which, BTW, is beat hands down by my 6 year old granddaughter. Check out my July 8th post for pics of the class samples.

Give me a call and we'll chat.
Thanks! The Mom
