Meet Dee Hudson

She is our Customer of the Month and this is one of her favorite layouts so far. I can't believe I forgot to do a Q & A with her! I'll have to get some info this weekend and update. I can tell you this much though...Dee is a sweetheart and I have enjoyed having her in my classes. I know that some of her friends read this why don't you post and tell us all something wonderful about Dee! By the way, you can see her layout up close and personal at the store until the end of May.

I am so excited and nervous. The Grand Opening of our new location on the square is this Saturday and I am so nervous! This has all happened sooooo fast. (I'm really nervous about the live remote...hoping that I don't sound too goofy!)
Anyway...just a reminder....the Grand Opening is Saturday, May 5th from 10a.m. until 5p.m. and we will be having a free crop, so reserve your spot as seating is limited. If you don't want to crop, stop by and check out the sales and register for the prizes that we will be giving away. I sure do hope to see all of you! I feel like I need to pinch myself...this is like a dream come true. There's just something really, well, neat, about having a store on the town square. It makes me feel like I'm really a part of the community!
I hope to have some fun pics to post from the Grand Opening, so check back next week.
Love to you all!

Almost There....

Whew! Busy, busy, busy. We are almost ready for our Grand Re-Opening. Until then, the store is open for business if you'll excuse the dust.

I have to apologize for not being very consistent about being at the store the last couple of weeks. It seems that for everything that I remember, there are 12 things that I forget and have to make a run for! Today it was my new glasses..(bifocals...YUCK!) Am I really that old? Oh well, at least I won't have to make such funny faces while trying to use the paper trimmer!

Now a word about the Grand Re-Opening....

Mimi's Trunk will be having our

And there you have it! Newsletters/Schedules are coming soon so check here and your mailboxes and call to reserve your class kits.
Just one more note...Sherry and I are so grateful for all of you wonderful ladies and the support that you have given us. We are just amazed at how this opportunity to move to the square just fell in our laps and have no doubts that this is meant to be. We hope that Mimi's Trunk will become a gathering place for everyone to come and share their latest creations, but most of all a place to share your wonderful stories. You all have a story to tell, and everyone of those stories are important. We are just glad to be a part of the process!
Love to you all....See you soon!

What a Day!

Boy am I tired. This will be a short post because I am exhausted from painting the NEW STORE all day! Yes, that's right. We made the move. We will now be located at 102 Church Ave. on the square in Berryville. I am so very excited about this, but terribly nervous too. I'm sure that this is the right move, but still, it's very scary to have all of the added responsibilities.

The phone has not been switched over to the store yet, but if you need something, call the house and my cell number will be on the answering machine. I will gladly run over and open up for you. With any luck, we will be all moved in by Tuesday of next week. The only change in schedule will be the classes for next Tuesday which will have to be cancelled. I will, however, have an extra class Friday morning for those of you who usually take the Tues. morning class.

I've got to get some sleep now. If you're on the square and see us working, stop in and say hello!
