December Happy Hours are SO fun!!

You know, Christmas is only 29 days, 5 hours and 34 minutes away. So I know some of you out there have not finished your shopping. I know some of you have so many decorations you are tired of looking at. I know there has to be some kids out there that really really want Santa to stop and see them at their house. So guess what? We can help you with all of those things!!

First - we'll have some cute decorations you can make. How about a cute "Santa Stop Here" sign for your kiddo's bedroom door? Yep, we'll have one for you to make. How about a cute little paper tree decorated with buttons and trims? Yep, we'll have that, too.

Second - gift card holders galore. Okay not galore, but at least two different really cute gift card holders.

Third - how about a cute mini album about decorating the tree? or the house? We'll have a cute cute "Trim the Tree" mini album - a few little embellishments will have you on your way - you'll just need the pictures. Oh, and the tree and decorations, but you can handle that.

Fourth - want some cute ornaments for teacher gifts, or to attach to presents? We've got you covered there, too. Are you surprised? You shouldn't be!! We're trying to make the holiday's a little easier and stress free just for you!!

You will not want to miss one single Happy Hour!! But, no worries. If you do, you can run by the store anytime afterwards - and as long as there are some left, and pick it up to go. Or you can call the store the morning of the Happy Hour and they'll charge you and hold on to it for you!! It can't get any easier than that.

And just for fun - guess what I'm going to do? GO AHEAD AND GUESS??? Okay, so you can't guess - I'll just tell you. Every Happy Hour your purchase every single time in December - you can put your name in to win a prize!! I'm going to work on gathering some fun stuff up for you and you'll get a chance every single time you buy a Happy Hour.

Okay, that's about all I've got to share for now! I'll be back with pictures of our projects really soon!!

Monday's Happy Hour

Come join us at 11 and you can put together these two cute layouts. One for Thanksgiving and one for Christmas. Quantities are limited, so try to make it by!! $4.00 a layout and we start at 11:00!

Hope we see you there!! These two layouts will wrap up our November month of layouts. We don't have a Happy Hour scheduled for this next Saturday since it's a big football day but I'll be back soon to post the schedule for December and show you a few peaks at the fun things we have planned. Here are a few things we're thinking about: gift card holders, tags for presents, signs welcoming Santa, and some fun things with felt, too!! You don't want to miss out of these fun items that will make your Christmas gift giving even easier. I mean why buy a crazy gift card holder that costs 3 or 4 dollars and looks just like everyone else's if you could make one by hand. And what about cute teacher gifts? And fun things to just have on hand for those people we sometimes forget to get a gift for? You won't be disappointed!! Come See Us!!

Two for Tuesday

Remember the month of layouts? Well, it starts Tuesday. Come by at 11 and spend $4 and make a New Years Day layout. You can use last years New Years pictures or you can get a head and have it ready for this years.

Just to give you something to think about - personally I am a 'everyday moment' kind of scrapper. I love scrapbooking the fun things my son does. I love being able to record the little special things in our lives. The little stuff is so big to us. I tend to forget to do the big holiday stuff. I don't have Halloween pictures from 2007 scrapped yet, not to mention this year's Halloween. I have a few layouts done from Christmas 2007, but I'm pretty sure 2006 didn't get finished. YIKES! No Easter layouts, either. I did manage a Valentine's layout - because it was a kit and all I had to do was assemble it according to the sketch. So easy.

Now my thinking behind the Month of Layouts was related to this. It would be great to have a chance to catch up those Holidays that I've neglected.

Maybe I'm not the only one out there that's behind. Surely, I'm not! So, here's the deal. We're going to squeeze in lots of layouts and get you all caught up for this year's big days. OR for those of you who have already done those holidays - and you're on top of the game - well, now you can get on top of the game for next year!! You'll have those layouts ready to go.

Here's another idea. You could assemble all of these layouts and have them ready to go into a cute 12 x 12 album and you have a Christmas gift ready to go. All your ift recipient would have to do is add their pictures. Easy Peazy!!

So - I hope you'll come and see us at 11 on Tuesday and bring $4 and make a really cute New Years layout!

So - what's the Two for Tuesday deal? I'm so glad you asked.

Tuesday, the kids are out of school for Veteran's Day. We thought they may like a little Kiddie Happy Hour. So at 2, stop by the store and your child (or children) can make a super cute card to send Santa. It's that time. With only 46 days left until the old guy with the white beard comes, our kids need to get those letters written. I know my son has been going through the Toys R Us toy book, the Target toy book and the WalMart toy book. So, he's got lots of ideas to send to Santa.

So, for just $2, your kids can come in and make a cute little card - all ready for you to drop in an envelope and send off to the North Pole. We'll put it together and then you can help them write their letter. If your child is too small to write their letter themselves - this little card will be big enough for you to help them paste in pictures out of the toy books - and send it to Santa that way. How fun!! Sweet and Simple:

My letter:

I'll help the kids put their cards together and you can browse the store for a little while - so technically, that's another bonus. So, does that make it Three for Tuesday? :) BUT WAIT, there's more. Call within the next five minutes and we'll double the order - OK, JUST KIDDING!! But there is one more thing. I'm including some info for the parents out there, or grandparents - info from the USPS about mailing letters to Santa and info about Macy's Believe Campaign that involves a drop off for your letters to Santa and helping the Make A Wish Foundation at the same time. You can check out the Scrap Etc. Forum for more info!!

I hope to see you there!!
