This is our last big push of the summer! First, I hope everyone who attended our Garage Sale this past Sunday found some really great bargains and had fun in the process. This weekend is our last big event for the summer - The Stamp Scrap Art Tour at the Hamburg Fairgrounds. The show runs Saturday and Sunday and we are selling pre-show tickets for $6. We'll be bringing a good amount of the store stock to the show along with lots of new product releases from a variety of companies. We have two great make n' takes with all proceeds going to the family we adopt at Christmas. Check your email for show specials and Bag Lady specials. Speaking of Bag Ladies, we are expecting a new shipment of bags any day now.
UPDATE: They're here!!
The black pouch in the front will fit your 12"x12" paper. There are mesh pockets on each end and the bag has a wider gusset than the previous design, about 3-4 inches. It zips close and has double handle straps. We have them in the store and will be bringing some to the show.
That's it for today. The new stuff is all going to the show so I've got nothing until then! I'll be helping to set up our booth on Friday so if allowed, I'll post a sneak peek. See you there!
Yes, I know, it's Thursday!?! Alison and I flip flopped our days this week so I could take my daughter back to college for her sophomore year. I'll share a few photos at the end of the blog.
It's a big weekend here too! GARAGE SALE!!! This Sunday from 10am to 1pm we will have tables set up outside the store and down towards the Verizon store AND INSIDE the empty store two doors down! We have over 30 people signed up to sell their gently used and in some cases NEVER used stamping, scrapping and paper supplies. There will be bargains galore! IMPORTANT - All Garage Sale purchases must be paid for in CASH and ALL SALES ARE FINAL!!

I meant to share this new paper last week but couldn't fit it in so here s something new for this week.
Authentique - Fabulous collection. When I pulled this paper I noticed it had a quote from Grace Kelly, "I never say never, and I never say always." I only mention this because I stumbled over 'Rear Window" yesterday and I sat there mesmerized for an hour by her and Jimmy Stewart.
Our Misti family is growing! We now have all three sizes.
I mentioned our all day road trip to bring Alexa back to school. Here are a few photos. Back in the day -- my parents fitted all of my stuff in the trunk and backseat of a Chevy Monte Carlo! One year I brought myself home in a Chevy Nova, although the spare tire ended up in the passenger seat! This year our day started at 7:30 with a 9 ft. panel truck and ended at midnight! Seriously, we're getting too old for this! We did get to help her set up her side of her room though. Here's how it went.
Now I get to make curtains for her closet! See you this weekend at the Garage a Sale and next week on the blog!
I promised an additional post this week and what a better way to lead off but with photos from Kaitlyn's wedding! I'll apologize for the poor quality as they were taken on my phone from a little bit of a distance and no one would turn and face me!
There are bound to be more photos turning up on Facebook as the weekend progresses. It was a wonderful evening and I wish Kait and Dave all the best as they begin their life together.
On to the product! First up Taylored Expressions Halloween! All of these are in a bucket just to the right of the register.

PPP - Pretty Pink Posh! Adorable new stamp and die sets and new foundation dies.
There is more but I'll need something to post on Tuesday. So I'll see you then!
The bells are ringing for Kaitlyn and Dave! As many of you know, Sharon's daughter, Kaitlyn is getting married on Friday. The store will be closing at 3 pm on Friday so we can attend the ceremony. Please join me in wishing Kait and Dave a long and happily ever after.
