The Holidays are officially upon us. Today is the biggest shopping day of the year it's Black Friday. The stores are bustling and some have been up since the wee hours and maybe even last night.

We had our annual Thanksgiving gathering here at the store last night. Thanks to those that joined us. I had a wonderful time seeing everyone and sharing your holiday.

I do not know about anyone else but I am having trouble getting into the Holiday Season this year so I started playing Holiday music the middle of November to help.

Don't forget we are doing our December raffle again. This month's raffle will be a brand new Dell Netbook and Photoshop Elements 8. The tickets are $5 or 5 for $20. Last month's winner was overjoyed when she won it was an early Christmas Present she said.

We are accepting Prima orders (30% off) and Magenta orders (20% off) through Sunday November 29. All you do is place an order and pay and you get the discount.

We just posted our December Photography and Elements Classes.

{Anniversary Crop..what a Hit}

The store was bustling with excitement and energy this weekend. It is so great to spend a weekend with wonderful ladies who just love being here and whom we love having.

It is Sunday morning at 1:44 am, yes you read that correct. We still have at least 3 hours before everyone goes to bed for the night. These weekends are exhausting but oh so fun!

Our Grand prize raffle was for a Dell Netbook!! Everyone was eager to win this great goody. Susan must be the luckiest person in the world. Several years back she won a Cricut machine at one of our events and now teaches Cricut classes for us. She promises with her new win she will start teaching Design Studio classes for us as well. Get busy Susan...

We had some great meals this weekend along with amazing raffles from contributors like Apricot Lane, The Promenade, My Minds Eye and Paper House Productions.

We had Janice draw the name and she actually chose herself for one of the prize drawings. That happened twice last night when Bailey also drew her own name for a raffle prize.

Everyone pigged out on Spaghetti and Meatballs Friday night and Chicken and Rice last night followed by cake both nights. This was truly a calorie filled weekend.

On a serious note we had a full crop with 40 ladies cropping. My thanks and appreciation goes out to old and new friends who came to support me and the store at our anniversary crop. What a fun filled 3 years we have had. We would not be where we are without you! We look forward to many years to come filled with fun, cropping and many new adventures mixed in.
