Is Texas REALLY that big????!!

I know posting dies on a Cricut blog seems just wrong, but these do have their place....

I checked on the Spellbinders dies yesterday and here's the deal. They shipped on Thursday and ETA is tomorrow. What you say? Apparently Texas is as big as they brag, 'cause my three (count 'em three) boxes of Nestabilities, Borderabilities, Frameabilities, Shapeabilities, Edgeabilities, and Impressabilities have been there since Friday!!!! I am not good at waiting, so I thought I would share some whine. :0

Trying to keep up...

Life is good, Ladies!!!! We have the keys!!! In case you missed Michelle's update yesterday, we got in and got started getting the new site ready for you to love. There'll be a kid zone, a hubby cubby, great space to crop and shop. And, best of all, the new product is coming in so fast, we have already run out of space to put the boxes here. Some of you were here yesterday as the delivery trucks pulled up and got a sneak peek at the goods. Well, let me tell ya' it is all Michelle and I can do not to play with the new toys and concentrate on the new space. We made lots of progress, despite the distractions. I am still placing orders, filling pre-orders and working on the class/event schedule. Michelle and the crew are splitting their time between the two locations and taking care of all the to-do's. We picked out our color scheme and Michelle has the paint already! She's working on the logo design and started the floor layout plan. That analytical mind is being put to good use and the creative juices are exploding into a wonderful play land for all of us. I want to thank you all again for your support while we revamped our business plan and can't wait for you to see what we have "in store" for you. Remember...we'll be open at the 136 Red Bank Road location until we get the 7800 Rivers Ave, Suite 1010 site ready. Come see me! The Mom

Cricut Mania from CHA!!!!

What a wild ride in July!!! And that's followed up by a whirlwind August! Any of you ladies who have been (at least) trying to keep up with the craziness this summer at TPH know you have to watch the blogs every day. Well, now it gets even better!

Michelle has the lease for the new location next to Toys-R-Us on Rivers Avenue and we should have the key on Monday. I think she ordered everything at CHA and it is like Christmas every day now. She will have the new place filled to the rafters with all the product you crave, so call us enablers! Until she is ready to let you in the door at the new site, we'll be open at the 136 Red Bank Rd location, with regular hours. We have several new instructors with classes ready to go and will have the schedule updated over the next couple of days. And of course my Cricut classes will rock, as always!

I placed my Provo Craft order and have all the new Cricut Cartridges and Cuttlebug embossing folders on the way! If you want one, give me a call to reserve yours. Some of the folders are already spoken for. And, as for the cartridges, I know I want Everday Paper Dolls; Sweethearts looks like fun, and who could pass up From My Kitchen? Michelle has already laid claim to Winter Woodlands and Designer's Calendar. After seeing the Gypsy demo'd at CHA, I ordered one immediately and got all the accessories for myself. And, oh yeah, I'll be glad to show it to you and order one for you, 'cause you will be so jealous!!!

Remember that surprise I promised you?... Well, I got the email that the ScrapCessories cartridge caddies are ready to ship! A fellow scrapbooker and Cricut lover, Daphne Shreiber
designed a tote system for her cartridges, books, and overlays. Daphne's husband is an engineer and she told him what she wanted. The end result will make you squeal with joy! It did me and Michelle had to pretend she didn't know me for the rest of the Show. And, wait until you see the bottle caddy Daphne designed. The system works together with a carry strap and is the best storage solution I've seen. Some of you gave her input at the design and beta testing stages and know what a great idea this system is already. Check out her website and give me a call to reserve yours, 'cause they are on the way to the TPH!!

I'll be in the store on Sunday 1-6pm with my card swap group and have a ton of catalogs to go through, so come play with me today!

See ya soon.
The Mom
