If You Build it, They Will Come.

Yep....it's my "Field of Dreams" philosophy to owning a scrapbook store! It's built...now come on in...don't be shy! I want to meet all of you and get to know you. I want you to pop in...see what's new...grab a cold water or soda from the fridge and chat for a bit. Share your latest project with me. Tell me a funny story about your kid. That is what I want for the store. I want you to feel at home...and thankfully, some of you have! I must apologize for the mess lately, but my mom and I have been working pretty hard trying to get a few more shelves done to display all of our product...seems I had more than I thought! We've got some new stuff in if you haven't been in for awhile....

Basic Grey Romani Collection and LilyKate...also their Oh Baby! collection. Beautiful Christmas and fall papers from My Mind's Eye, Flair, and Pebbles Inc.. You really ought to stop by and take a peek!

I'm really curious....does anybody really read this? (I mean, besides Polly?....by the way...thanks girl!) If you do, please post a comment. I'm feeling a little lonely out here in cyberspace!

I'm really looking forward to CROPTOBER FEST! October 7th from 10a.m. until 6p.m. It's going to be such a good time. There will be prizes, goody bags, snacks and lunch, and don't forget the Chatterbox "Scrapaholic" mug! Don't forget to reserve your spot ahead of time. Space is limited.

I know I've said it before...but I will be posting pics of the Christmas Cards very soon. Like I said, Mom has had me sidetracked building and painting shelves.

Okay...final note...I have a challenge for you. Make a page (any size) about why you scrapbook. Bring it to the store, and I will display it here on the blog, plus give you half off any class or crop you choose! (Is it really bribery when I'm asking you to do something you love???)

Have a great day!

At the Fair

Well, I spent this evening at the fair. The booth looks really nice, but the foot traffic tonight was pretty slow. Of course, it was the beauty pageant, so most of the folks were in the arena cheering on their favorite gal. Hopefully, the weekend will bring a larger crowd.

I want to give a shout out to my friend Mandy for winning the Grand Champion ribbon in the scrapbook exhibit! Great job Mandy!!

Do you know what the biggest response to the booth was tonight??? "I haven't got time." I know that everyone is really busy...but I truly believe we should MAKE the time to document our lives. No one said it had to be a work of art...(although, nice paper and good color selection does help tell your story and convey the general feeling of the pictures.) I wish people would just take a moment to realize that they are not always going to be around to tell their side of the story, or to share how they feel with the people they love. This hobby is worth making the time for. Do me a favor....post the reason/and how ...you make time to scrapbook. I would love to read your thoughts!

Well, I'm off to bed....See you at the Carroll County Fair!
