We are open Holiday Monday, regular hours, 10:00am - 5:30pm
Once again summer is starting to wind down, flowers are in their last bloom, evenings are cooler and the flies are trying to get indoors to escape the coming frost. Noticed this one on our front counter monitor last night. It seemed patient so I google searched some backgrounds and took a few photos.
I need to start this post with a thank you: THANK YOU to all the ladies that have been coming to these last two Project Life themed crops. The response has been incredible and I am so grateful for all your support.
This past Saturday we held our second crop and it was a blast. I love the energy of the ladies all working on the same thing, sharing ideas, inspiration and laughs. The product swap has been a huge success and it is fantastic to "go shopping" from the goodies given to the swap. Did I mention we had a sundae bar? We did, and it was delicious!
Lisa Kercher led the title card tutorial, teaching us how to create a card with watercolor. They turned out beautiful, thank you Lisa for this.
We had three new faces to Project Life, croppers from out of town and plentyof familiar faces. Again, thank you for coming and for inspiring us at the store to go big or go home.
I am super excited for our next Project Life themed crop on September 27! Details for this event will follow the photos below.

I will bring my sewing machine but if you have one you can bring please do.
For my sample I used vintage buttons, but I am unable to get enough for students. I will bring a variety of small buttons but they will differ from my sample. Also I am not sure that the store will have the exact scrapbook paper that i used ...but you will be able to choose 3 sheets of your choice of paper for the pages of your journal. Keep this in mind when you are bringing your distress inks as you may want to choose a different colour.
