Thank You!

Hi Everyone,
I just wanted to say "Thank you" to all who came in during the month of January to help us clear out our merchandise, and most of all to visit with us one more time here at MGSS. It was nice to hear everyone making plans to continue cropping and swarming at each other's homes, work conference rooms, etc.
Again I'd like to express my gratitude for your kind words, gifts, and offers to help with inventory...we truly had the most wonderful customers & friends here. I'm sure we'll meet again.

After prayerful consideration, I've decided to close the Memory Garden Scrapbook Shoppe at the end of January. I've struggled with this decision because the store is doing well, but there are other factors to consider. Right now I need to devote my attention to my family, my home and myself.

The store will be open only on Mondays, Wednesdays & Saturdays in January. We'll have one more Friday Night Crop, Card Connection & Cricut Swarm. Ayde and I look forward to spending time with you, and making this a great send-off.

Starting Monday (Jan. 3) everything in the store will be 25% off. I've put out several new items in the last week. Come in soon for best selection.

Please check the calendar for the complete schedule, and register for all events via e-mail.

I'll see you soon.

I'm Thankful

I'm so blessed, and thankful for each of you. To express my gratitiude, I'm offering this FREE make-n-take to everyone who comes in and mentions they saw this on our blog! It's made with our cake slice die and Cricut Paper Doll Dress-Up cartridge. You can fill it with all kinds of goodies.
You have to come in tomorrow through Friday of this week, though. Remember, the store will be closed from Nov. 20 - 26th.
Those of you who are attending our Cricut Swarm, I've got you covered. I'll have a kit for each of you on Friday night.
Keep in mind this is my sample- and looks a bit messy. I didn't even wait for it to dry before I took the photo & smeared the stickles. It really is cute in person.
I'll see you soon.

Joy & Jubilation

A little while ago my UPS guy drives up, and my heart goes pitter-patter. What can he be bringing me today? What joy and jubilation I felt when I opened that box and found an assortment of Tim Holtz NEW stamps. I would've posted a picture, but it wouldn't do them justice. You'll just have to come in and take a look.
I also have a limited quantity of his Tattered Floral & Rosette dies on hand.
Gotta lOVE this guy...Tim Holtz - not my UPS man.

12 Hours of FUN

What a day! Thanks to everyone who joined us for our 12 Hour Crop on Saturday. It never seems like we've been at it for 12 hours after the day is done. It was a pleasure being surrounded by a group of such talented ladies. I appreciate you all very much.
This is of one of the make-n-take projects presented during the crop & some of the ladies working on it. As always, Ayde presented a fabulous idea to us. Thank you Ayde for sharing your creativity. The ladies enjoyed it.

NEW October Afternoon Line

I have to let you see some new items that came in recently. Don't ya' just looove it? It's by October Afternoon, and is so versatile. I also received "Jovial" Basic Grey's latest Christmas line. It has a "woodsy' feel, and can also be used for your deer hunting layouts.
We'll be cropping from 9 to 9 on Saturday woo-hoo! Can't wait to post some pics of everyone having a good time. Come by - even if you're not cropping with us. We'd love to see you.

Grunge Flower Frame Class

We had a great time on Saturday during Cindy's class. Although everyone was working on the same project, they each turned out different. You know how that is. We learned how to make dimensional flowers out of grunge paper, and they turned out beautiful. Thanks ladies for a fun Saturday.
