Happenings at the Store

Saturday was our 5th annual Halloween Crop. The store was filled with scrappers from all over the metroplex. Most were dressed in costumes. Lunch was catered by The Dove's Nest and Dinner was catered by College Street Pub. The food was excellent according to the "yums" we heard.

Instead of the usual make and take this year, a kit was provided with all the pieces needed and instructions to complete a great little pumpkin book. We have started making kits instead of having actual make and takes because so many croppers have projects they want to complete and we don't want to take too much of their time. With the kits, they can decide when and where they want to complete them.

If you didn't get in on this crop, the next crop is in November. The Saturday after Thanksgiving we have a "pot-luck crop". Pay $10.00 to hold your space-the $10.00 will be returned to you as store credit. Bring a food dish to the crop to share with the other croppers. Won't you need a break from all the festivities? Sign up, the crop is about 1/2 full right now.
We have a few staffing changes to update you about. Heidi is no longer working with us. She is going back to the mortgage industry and has moved to the far north (of the metroplex). She'll likely still visit us, but it is a little too far to commute. Good Luck Heidi!

We have a new person who you may have already met. Her name is Kerri. She will be helping us out on weekends, and crops and whenever we need some extra help. She worked at Bennett's previously, and you may know her from there. Sherri is now working at the store full time. Despite Carolyn's statements that Sherri will run the store and Carolyn will just do classes...Carolyn is still in charge and also, happily, is teaching lots of classes. Mary Lou is still here too, although she had to miss the Halloween crop this year. :(

We have many new projects and classes to put out over the next week, so keep an eye on the blog and the website. Hope your week is great.

Now for all the crazy pictures from the Halloween Crop......

Carolyn, Kerri (our new member of the Crafty Scrapper), and Sherri.....we decided Sherri was a scrapbook layout that blew up! The rub-ons on the face were priceless.
