With the boat load of Ranger product that arrived yesterday, I have had to make room for the fun new stuff! So, if you know me well, that means that I have had to clear our older product to make room for the new!
Tuesday, October 5, 2010
This first picture is of a banner that was made by the girls at Canvas Corp. They have a great new paper line that is on the way, and it takes ink really well, and has a great price point!
The second picture is my gorgeous mom in our Prima class, Friday evening. We completed a 4x6 Canvas album using some of the new paints by Ranger that are also on their way. The albums turned out awesome, are in the shop for you to take a look at! This class was great, and so was the instructor.
I will have to say my most exciting class was with Scrapbooking King TIM HOLTZ. Below is a picture of me and him.......I can tell you this. Tim is nothing like I ever would have imagined. He has a great personality, and is so down to earth. We had so much fun placing our order with him....Needless to say 6 vagabonds later, and every die he makes later, we are excited about all the Ranger Products coming into the shop! We are also expecting the Stampers Anonymous stamps in very soon to! Tim has alot of fun stuff coming up on his blog that he was telling us about, so be prepared, and make sure to stop in the shop to pick up all the fun supplies you will need to make those famous 12 tags of Christmas!
I also took a class from Outlines. A stamp company. These stamps are really cool! They were made to layer.....They also have ornament toppers, Peek a Boo Style stamps, and Jewelry! We will be having some classes coming up in the next month so be sure to check them out!
I will be back again with some more pictures of inspiration of all our fun projects! Stop in and check them out to!

I hope you are having a great week!

We went to visit my in-laws in MO. The boys always have a great time because Hayden's papa always takes him to go hunting, and boy does he LOVE that!
Here are a few photos of the hunting they did....Needless to say, they got one squirrel and one racoon. Hayden was SO excited!
He was so cute. Every time I asked him to take his picture with his little gun he always held it up in front of his eyes.
We did some fishing as well! Isn't this a beautiful view? I love going to visit. If you look close you can see the tint of the leaves starting to change! Fall was definitely in the air!!
The boys always have a great time feeding the ducks to!
So, Our vacation to Missouri was great! I will post again tomorrow about the Collins Rep Group Convention that we just finished up this past weekend as well. Whew......I'm almost caught up!
I thought I would take the time to share with all of you who missed the class just exactly all the fun you missed out on!
The first class that we did was a technique class using glimmer mist, Glaze, and Glam on all different types of surfaces. wood, metal, paper, and we even learned a photo transfer technique!
This photo here is of Jen showing how to paint using the glam and glaze on metal!
This is a photo of the ladies getting ready to get their fingers inky!
And the fun begins!
Yea! Jen, me and mom! Thanks Jen for coming down and playing with us! We had a blast, and I know you did to! So, glad you were able to share all your inky goodness with us!
Can't wait to see you again soon! And, thanks for signing our wall!
For those of you who missed out on the fun of this class. Don't worry, more fun and exciting things are to come!

This is a photo of Hayden's first day of school is one of my favorites. We were in such a hurry to get to school, that I had picked up a pair of clothes to put on Clayton before we walked "big" brother into school, and wouldn't you know that I walked out and forgot to grab them. Yes, this was just the start of my busy day!
I asked Hayden to go stand in front of this tree so I could get a picture of him, and next thing I know, Clayton was wiggling his way into the picture saying "cheese" "cheese". He was so cute!
Drop off for Hayden's first day went well. No tears for Hayden or mommy! I think having the boys home with a sitter all summer really did him well. It was a breeze all week! We are on vacation next week, so we will see how he does when we come back from visiting grammy, and papa.
This picture is of the little school boy before we left for school in front of our house. He was such a ham. I don't think he has been more excited than he was this day!
I do have to say as a mom, I am in love with this school already, even though it has only been 3 days. I love it. He is doing great, and learning alot to! LOVE IT!
On another note, away from my family. We are excited about Jen Starr's arrival tomorrow. We are full to the max for the two classes, and are expecting to have a great time! We are looking forward to it!
We are also expecting BO BUNNY on Monday. We will be open, BUT we will open late. Mom has to take me to the airport. She should be here by NOON. We need to be patient ladies and let her get it imputed into the computer so, please be patient, and take it easy on her! Monday is her birthday so be kind!!!!
Stop in on Monday and receive 50% off ONE item when you wish her a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

So are you wondering what the title for this blog post means? I hope so! I hope I have your full attention! Many of you have been wanting to renew your customer loyalty programs, since they are beginning to expire, and I have kept you from doing so, because I have been thinking of a better way to serve you! So, I had a very good customer in here a few weeks back, and she and I were discussing how this program could benefit her more, and she threw a few ideas out to me, and I have thought about them to see if it would in fact be beneficial, and I think I have came up with a solution! So this is what I have done. I pulled up my top 50 customers, who have spent money in here since the beginning of the year, January.
So this is how our loyalty program will work from here on out. There will be four brackets of savings, and it is all determined on your loyalty to us, and how much you spend with us.....Costco has a similar program allowing money back at the end of the fiscal year. So here it goes, this is how it works.
The savings will start once you have spent $300.00 within the store each year.
Bronze: $300.00 up to $599.99 save 5% on all products
Silver: $600.00 up to $999.99 save 10% on all products
Gold: $1000.00 up to $1999.99 save 20% on all products
Loyal: $2000.00 and over. save 25% on all products
If you frequent our shop, and spend with us frequently then your savings will continue to grow. Our computer system takes care of this for us. We will pull a report each month, and only once a month, so your savings can be knocked up a percentage each month depending on your sales. The fun thing with this program is that you will be able to use these discounts with all products, classes, and monthly crops.
***The only thing that these discounts will not apply to is garage sales, guest designers/teachers that we may bring in, and 3 day weekend crop fees. We will also not accept the discount with gift certificate purchases of gift certificates.*** Page of the month students will not be able to use the discount on those specific class kits.
If you are a Copic Club member you will get the higher discount, not both.
example: Copic club members receive a 10% discount, but if you are a loyalty customer who receive as 20% discount you will receive the 20% discount over the 10% discount.
This program is brought to you all without a "membership fee". It is all determined on your monthly spending with us.
We will offer this program through the end of the year as a trial run. If it is a success we will continue this program starting January 1st, and we will start fresh with the year.
So with all of this being said this brings a program to many of you, that are well able to start receiving discounts. We will go ahead and apply your discounts to any future purchases.
I hope you are all as excited as I am!
