It's another Croppin' Weekend!

Yep...Saturday, the 23rd from 10 -6 we will be croppin' at Mimi's Trunk. I hope that you can join us. It's so much fun to have everyone hangining out and doing their thing. I have truly grown to love all of my customers. By the way....I think we're going to do some Geraldi's for lunch. YUM!!

Okay....I know that I have been a bit behind on the Customer of the Month and I need to post her pic and her lovely mini album that she made for her daughter, but I will tell you who she is until tomorrow when I can get those things done.....drumroll......

Shawnda Escobar!!

Shawnda has become quite the scrapbooker. You should see the album she's taking back to her husband's family in El Salvador. It is gorgeous. I will get the pics up asap so that you can enjoy her sweet album for her daughter.

Our sale is still going, and I am noticing some empty slots on my paper wall so you had better get in and stock up while you still can. 50% off of a whole lot of paper and embellishments. We are making way for the new stuff we are ordering in. I can't wait to show you what's coming in this week. I LOVE IT!!

Speaking of new, we received another shipment from BoBunny. Some really cute boy prints and some bright girly girl stuff. Oh, and gorgeous black and cream polka dots and flowers, along with Wedding Rub-Ons to go with them.

If you haven't been in lately, make sure to take a peek at Sherry's Junque from the Trunk. She has been working hard papercrafting embellishments that will give your pages that finishing touch. (Her new camping stuff is toooooooo cute!)

On a personal note, I have to brag a little. My oldest daughter Rachel won Miss Photogenic and 2nd runner up in her age group at the Ice Cream Social pageant. Not that we needed the awards to know how beautiful she is...but it was sure a lot of fun for her. I must say that I was most proud of how she followed through with her duties and did what was asked of her, including being there early on Saturday morning for the 5k to hand out ice cream tickets, and trophies to the racers.

Would you like to have some fun??? Let's have a contest. I would like to see the most creative use of an item purchased at one of the Berryville, downtown merchants. You will need to show a receipt for the item purchased, and use products from my store (along with other products that you might want to use.) We will begin displaying them in the store on July 7th and the cut off date for entries will be July 21st. The following week, the downtown merchants will be invited to stop in and vote for their favorites. The first place winner will receive a Mimi's Trunk gift certificate for $50.00. Second place will receive one for $20.00, and third will get one for $10.00. Good luck, and have fun creating!
