Forgot Again

Forgot to tell you to check out the Cosmo Cricket blog ( on the right side of ours). I clicked on the current one and then went to something at the top labeled Random things.........Be sure to read it. There are Wonderful recipes in there. Julie, the female part of Cosmo, is into really healthy eating and I LOVED her ideas for salads and zuchinni pancakes ( one of my favorite things), etc. And the others who responded to her posts, gave great ideas too. Tomorrow night I hope it is all still there, cause I want to copy recipes! Who knew? On a blog involving paper, you get recipes? Love it. Love this business. Love you.......................

Sorry..........Got Busy!

Ohmygoodness, I forgot to post! It has been such a busy week...I did not forget about you, just forgot I need to do this on a regular basis!

Lots of new goodies coming in daily. Eye candy, I think the pros call it. The Petaloo flowers and glitter papers arrived yesterday. You will LOVE punching those, or tearing them, etc. The colors are stunning. Flowers are pretty cute too.

We have been working like crazy to get the new classes and crops planned for the next newsletter and think it will be ready next week. I have lists at the shop and can tell you about most of them, and some are already signing up for both classes and crops.....just call for info. Tomorrow ( which begins in 20 minutes :) ) Ed and I are taking a day off to spend with dear friends.......isn't that fun? So I will be back on duty Fri and try to "finish up" the news. In the meantime, check out the freeee page protectors with purchase of an album this week and see the new product. I think lots will come tomorrow while I am gone, to torment poor Sue!

Hugs to each of you.........heading for sweet dreams. See ya Fri.!

Scarecrow Fest coming!

Nearly forgot to tell you to put the Downtown Delavan annual Scarecrow Fest on your calendars! It is such a fun, family oriented day. This year it will be on Sat., Sept. 19th and begins about 9-10 in the morning and goes into the afternoon. There will be scarecrows on the streets to see and photograph ( once again , Memories will offer a $10 gift cert. to our shop for each scarecrow entered in the contest........let me know you are doing this)............there will be fun things for the kids....pumpkin decorating contest, scarecrow decorating contest, food, music, crafts in the park, a DUCK RACE with first prize of $200 and about 20 prizes to Delavan busineses altogether, the list goes on.

WE need to have contributions of OLD clothes for the scarecrow decorating contest! Old jeans or long pants ( the rattier, the better), old long sleeved shirts, pantyhose with runs.........etc. These are truly needed......the type of clothing you would not take to re-sale or give away shops, so we have enough to dress the scarecrows. This is different from the ones you will bring to put in the contest out on the street.........these are just for the kids to decorate across the st. from our shop and take home with them. Thanks for your help!

FYI, we are going to do another Scrapbooking rummage sale this fall, so begin getting your things packed up that you want to get cleaned out. There has been a lot of interest in doing another one this fall, instead of waiting for we said OK! We aim to please! More about it later, but wanted to give you a head's up. Remember, you do not have to be there......we take care of the sales when you bring it in, marked with your initials and price.

New Product

Hi there! Got new product in today.........some papers and stickers with a Tennis theme. Great "water" papers and stickers for trips to the beach, water parks, etc............some fun papers ( and stickers) for those recipe books and boxes you are working on, and some funky paper ribbon packs. A HUGE order from Colorbok, with gobs of albums and stickers and embellishments has shipped, as well as our first CHA SEI order......should be here this week. I have the Christmas Mint line coming first...........I know, I know......why did I not have the "fall" looking order ship earlier than the rest? "Cause I know some of you are anxious to see the newest of the new Christmas papers and I love this one, so thought you would want to see this one. It is a delightful are going to like this. Will let you know the day it arrives. Other things are preparing to ship......just can't think of it all right now............sorry.

Hope you are enjoying this mild day. I am busy sending a surprise off to those of you who are Memories watch your mail! Hugs.............Linda

We are beginning to get some samples of class projects, in the shop, as well as the papers, etc. This is a darling stationary box that Rhonda is teaching in Sept. and it is chock full of "stuff". The photo below will give you an idea of what is'll make the box, 6 little note cards, six large note cards, a magnet for paper clips, pockets, etc. It is adoreable and as our staff has been coming in, they are all saying the same thing! Cute!!! So, call to sign up. Class is Sept.1 from 6 to 9, Fri. Sept 4th from 6 to 9, and Thurs. Sept 10 from 1 to 4.

Amazing Technique Class

AMAZING!!!!!!!! Rhonda has been teaching a 7 hour class today ( yes, the ladies are still in one piece) and it is just amazing. She is teaching 26 different techniques that can be used for scrapbooking and cardmaking and it is a hoot! Sometimes the smells that come from the back room are unusual, as they use products I never would have thought of using, ( Beth and I have been saying "what are they Doing???) but the end result is Wonderful. They have created a teaching book full of what they made and will now be able to go home and do it again anytime they is super!

There is room in this Thursday's class, which begins at ten a.m. Lunch is included in the $50 fee and believe me, you go home having gotten your money's worth. The class on the 22nd has room for two more, but we can take several on the 13th. Give us a won't be sorry. And it is nice that you get to walk around to different stations to do your work, so no one gets stuck in one spot for seven hours.

Our basic cricut class is totally filled for tomorrow night, so will announce a new one shortly. We are all working on the new newsletter and will be posting things as quickly as we can.

Have a great evening friends....................Linda

Busy Day in the Shop

'Twas a busy day in the shop today, despite the downpours this morning. I felt so badly for all those who planned on having tables outside for Maxwell St. Day. Lots of activities had to be cancelled, but we will hold them later and will let you know.

I had fun with the gals from Dazzlem Creative Events. They set up a Darling display in our smaller cropping room and did a drawing for some cute animals......showed off some of what they do in the party line for kids to young adults............they are some very special ladies and they do a bang up job .......If you need to host a very remarkable party, they are the ones to call!

Jennifer and I have ordered and ordered and we have some absolutely Wonderful product coming in, beginning this next week I think. I still have to figure out where to put things, but we will do it and you will have such fun with the new things. Tools, papers, embellishments, sales, classes, demos, etc. are all part of our plans for Fall and we hope you will join in the fun.

Teachers........come crop for FREE in Sept.! All teachers are welcome, or those who are on staff in schools.......come get caught up on pages that you need to get done. It is our way of saying thank you to those who care for our youngsters. That mean home school moms too...........not going to leave You out! :)

It is late and I need some sleep, so will say goodnight. We have a busy week ahead in the shop and I need to clear my head, so will close for now. Hugs to each one...........Linda
