May 31, 2006-May 31, 2012

Six years ago today we opened our front doors on Cole Terrace. It was the beginning of a wonderful adventure. Playing with paper was my hobby and this hobby became Scrappy Papers. What fun it was shopping for all that paper. All those stamps. Seeing new and wonderful tools. Then in the Fall of 2007 we moved to our new location on Highway 90.

Thanks to my Family who helped set up both shops. They painted, drilled, put down flooring,
and encouraged me. Without their help Scrappy would not have been the comfortable cute shop I called my second home. Yep, it definitely was my second home or maybe it was my first home and I just left it long enough to sleep at night.

Over the last few years I have learned so much. I knew a tiny bit about a lot of different things. With each card and layout I learned a little more. With each question, I learned more. I also learned what great cooks you all are. I know you often saw my face behind that computer screen. But the computer helped me to learn and figure things out. I loved learning things and then sharing them with you. You encouraged me to find the unusual and were always gracious in accepting whatever I created. I get so excited when you share all the things you have made. It's pure joy for me to see your creativity.

Scrappy Papers would not be what it is without you. As Carter calls you 'The Ladies'. When I started this little adventure I never imagined all the friendships. My friendship with you and your friendship with each other. Usually I post pictures of you guys but this time I want you to visualize faces that you remember sitting across from you, or coming through the front door, or offering to help you. These are the friendly faces at Scrappy Papers. You so wonderfully welcomed whoever walked in that front door. It's like you were welcoming them into our home. That is what makes being at Scrappy's so special. A warm friendly atmosphere. Keeping that friendly bond going after the shop closes is wonderful.

There is and ending to every adventure. But then there is always a new adventure to begin.
As I end this adventure I want to thank you all for the love and support you have given me these last six years. You have made the adventure so rewarding. It will be very hard closing those doors this afternoon, but I am looking forward to opening that next door and starting the new adventure ( after a little rest of course).

This will be last time I get to say 'See you at the shop.'

Boy when you ask for rain sometime you really get it. It seems to be soaking in pretty good. I had a few limbs down around the house but if we had any heavy wind I missed it. Slept right through the night. Prissy and I are at the shop waiting for those coming in to play today. Maybe that bell will be ringing some great sales throughout the day.

See you at the shop.

My goodness Saturday was a whirlwind. Lot's of good shopping going on during the day. They do love to hear that bell ring. Four more days left to grab those deals. This week we have 50% off ( unless that bell rings and there is a different discount) merchandise excluding classes, displays, and new merchandise. Our hours are Monday through Thursday 10:00 until 5:00 pm. After our class on Thursday we will have a little celebration. So come say goodbye to the shop.

See you at the shop.

Tomorrow will be our last Saturday meeting at the shop. Some people are bringing their Cricut. Some are bringing their Cuttle bug. Some are just coming to hear that bell ring for those great sales.

We will be open on Monday.

See you at the shop.

Count down is on. Only a few more days to stop by and grab that bargain. It is a great time to stock up on those supplies for those Summer crafts. This week the sale is 40% off your total purchase excluding sale items, new items, classes and displays.

I love learning things from those little guys that come to the shop. Today I learned a new word. Hecho. We ask after hearing this word several times 'What do you mean?'. The little guy says' You know when you (he now cups his hand and starts saying... hellooooooo). As we burst out laughing and say ECHO you mean echo. Yeah, that's what I said hecho. You know he is learning words now. We sure learned a new word and loved every minute of that education.

Enjoy the evening. Gotta get to bed early so I can make it to Graduation in the morning.

Shop opens at 11:00 in the morning.

See you at the shop.

What a wonderful last Card Blitz at the shop. The ladies did a great shop keeping pace. There were a lot they had to do this time. No lost pieces. Lots of laughter and sharing. And to top it all off Joan made this awesome cake. And boy did I enjoy that humongous piece. Lots of chocolate and whipped cream. Yummmmmm!!!!!

This next week I will be out of the shop during the morning Tuesday through Friday. Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday the shop will open at 11:00 am. Friday it will be more like 12:00. Lots of graduations, awards, and my class at the retirement home. Whew! I'm tired already. Oh there is also one card and one layout to have ready for the week.

The sale this week will be 40% off of everything excluding reduced items, displays, new merchandise, and classes. The merchandise has been zipping out the door these Saturdays with that bell ringing. There is one more Saturday for that bell to be ringing. So don't miss out on grabbing up those great deals.

Better get busy. Laundry, painting, gardening, and what ever the little girl might come up with. You know she can dance and demand anything from me.

See you at the shop.

Mom 2012

My camera woke up. Technology is wonderful, but sometimes it drives me craZZZZyYYYYY!!!

Our layout shows my Mom and Dad and oldest brother. My goodness my Mom and Dad sure looked so young. Well so did I. And why was I smirking instead of smiling. Makes me think I was up to something. Look at that hair... no curls. Get ready to do some punching tomorrow.

Better get to bed. I have to get up pretty early tomorrow.

See you at the shop.


Tomorrow's layout will have to be a surprise. My camera is down for the count.

See you at the shop.
My camera died so I will post later tonight when battery is charged. Wouldn't you know it. I get the layout finished early and I can't get it posted. The title is Mom. One 4.5 x 4.5 picture with Pink, Teal, and White.

Back later.

See you at the shop.

Weekly Special

This weeks sale is 20% off your total purchase (excluding classes, displays and sale items).

Sunday, May 6, 2012

What a great day yesterday. Ringing that bell, helping with the craft room, and eating. Yes you know we can't have a gathering without food. So many sale items going out the door. The ladies were learning to use the craft room and boy did they do a great job. I laughed and said I was headed to the back for a little fortification. But I was just teasing them. When I see them accomplishing things on their own it makes me smile and want to give them a high five. Congrats ladies on doing a great job.

Several ladies walked out with some of the display items. So when you come into the store the next time do not be surprised at some of the changes. As the month progresses more items will begin to go missing from the shelves so don't miss out on getting those supplies you need before they are gone, gone gone.

This coming Saturday will be our last Cuttlebug Club meeting in the shop. There maybe another ring that bell sale going on. Oh my like 60% off punches, 50% off flowers, albums, stamps, packaged cards, and metal embellishments. Oh my the deals.

Have a great day.
