Busy Week

I was very lucky to have spent last weekend in Bismarck with my sister and brother in law, they spoil us rotten! The kids all went to see Beauty and the Beast, we went antiquing and thrift store shopping. I did get a few good deals to use at the store. It was a good thing we had some time away to rest up for the busy week we had. 

We've been getting in new products daily trying to keep up is quite a job. Luckily Ron was by my side...even when I was barking orders at him, I can be pretty bossy! You must stop in and check out all the new goods and the 25 new Lawn Fawn samples I made this week, they are sure to inspire you to create. 

Jessica's card class was Thursday and again tomorrow, she was super busy too. She is such a sweetie today she dropped off 5 card samples for me to display. She loved the new paper so much over her lunch break she whipped them up, she is a gem for sure I appreciate all her hard work. Her next card class will be April 20th and 22nd give us a call at 320-629-9960 if you would like to sign up for it.

I'm hoping the orders will slow down a bit so I can do a little furniture moving at the store this week. I've got a couple of display ideas I would like to try. Unfortunately it means heaving lifting of awkwardly long 100+ year old display tables. They were used in our building back when it was The Pine City Mercantile. I figure if they were good enough for them to use I might as well use them too! So cross your fingers and hope that happens for us this week, I've got a lot of sweet talking to do!

Have a great weekend, I hope to see you at the store soon!

Spring Is On Its Way

The snow is gone but it's freezing out. I love it, I can't get out in the yard to start weeding last years weeds out of my flower beds so I might as well hold up in my craft room!

I've been completely obsessed with making cards I can't tell you the last scrapbook page I made. I do need to get back at it I have to decorate the store for spring and put some new pages out. Surprise...I've been procrastinating! Maybe I will do it this weekend...I actually said the same thing last weekend. I've got photos out to scrap and the paper and embellishments I just need to do it!

I don't know about you but sometimes the hardest part is getting the photos. I'm so disorganized with my photos right now so when I need to find photos to scrap I have to go through tons of...memories. Some of those memories I just don't want to deal with so those photo boxes are a love hate relationship. I have so many photos when my life was "happy". I'll be honest and say I haven't printed  many photos since my new life that I feel like I still just float through. Each passing year does get better, but I do miss those that I have lost in my new life. I miss my cheerleaders, even though they were my parents and they had to cheer for me. Lol!

Ah my crazy life, I wouldn't trade it or the people in it for the world. I'm so lucky to have my family and friends by my side holding me up, standing beside me and dragging me through!

We need at least 20 hugs a day...go hug someone!
