Just a quick note to say hello from the sunny Oregon Coast. They say we just missed the rain, hopefully it will remain dry for another couple of days. Madalyn has her paint easel out and is painting her first 'masterpiece'. We are relaxing, enjoying a little down time. The store remains open with Katie & Lorelei keeping things going. Open cropping is free all week while the store is open. Use this opportunity to get your winter projects completed!
Saturday was our 3rd annual event to raise money for Relay for Life, and it was a hit!! We took things down just a notch this year in light of the economy, and the response was overwhelming! People loved the intimacy of having a smaller venue and fewer people; we were able to share the stories of how cancer has touched our lives and it brought a great comfort to the group. We laughed, we cried, we won prizes, and we made money; $1,708 at last count!!
A big thank you to all who participated and especially to Judy Moran for providing us with munchies, Jeanette Steele for her hard work at getting donations, and Rogue Coffee Roasters for keeping us in coffee!!
Lorelei and I are busy as ever today, getting ready for our BIG EVENT: Crop for A Cure: stuffing goodie bags, numbering prizes, going through the final prep check-off list!! John and Valerie are unpacking, inventorying, and putting out all kinds of new product. Just today we got some great new high school albums and papers, just for our local schools!!
We can still fit you in if you haven't yet signed up for Saturday. Crop for A Cure, raising money for our Relay for Life team. If you can't crop, stop by and say 'hi', we'd love to have you check out what we do best!! - Karyn
We have had the most AMAZING day today!! First of all, we got a big order from BoBunny in and that is never a bad thing.
Then, we had our Hip & Luxurious Album class and it was a blast! We had just the right mixture of gals, all with lots of humor that kept us going. It would have made perfect class photos, but I forgot to bring my camera today! Anyway, thank you to all who braved 3+ hours with me making this beautiful album!
Just had to put a teaser up on a class we're doing, it's the Hip & Luxurious Album scheduled for 1pm on March 8th. Class fee is $30 and it includes everything.
I had so much fun putting it together and I know you will too. The big thing is you get to pick your colors!! Which means you can also choose your theme, it doesn't have to be "Me & You". All products are from the Lush collection by My Mind's Eye. The colors are red, blue, pink, brown, black, and green. All embellishments are coordinated by color; there are 5 papers in each color and 2 of them have beautiful flocking. The album is very nice quality with a little flocking on the front and back covers.
I can't wait for you to see the entire project, the products are LUSHious!!
