New Paint




Well, the paint at the store is moving along. I got bored with the tedious-ness of the brown, and started the pink on the trim work. I just can't wait for it to be done, so I can get things to normal again

I'm off to Houston this weekend, with Patty to pick up dog food (long story, tell you later). We're going to go to Galveston tomorrow. I've never been. I've packed my sunscreen so my Irish skin won't fry

Weekend Getaway

I wish I could relive this weekend! I had some of the girls from the store to the house for a retreat. We did the usual scrapbook things..eat, crop, laugh, crop. You'll notice that sleep didn't make the list! This weekend was a "Thank You" to these ladies (and Erick) for all the support they give me. Sally finished 17 pages, Adeline 14 (she had to work from 8-3, but she finished all the pictures she had planned to!), Patty finished 9 (she was gone all day Saturday to a previously scheduled family event), Krista got about 8 or 9 pages, and I got 12 of my mini pages done.
We had time to talk about the CKC Convention in Tulsa in August. We are getting a hotel room and making a weekend of it!
Speaking of the convention...this month's challenge has been decided. You have 2 choices this month:
  1. "Defining Moment" this is the page title for the CKC contest. If we have it finished by July, there will be no excuse not to enter.
  2. Or do a simple layout for the Simple Scrapbook contest. From the way I read it, there isn't a theme...just your best simple layout.

So come on girls, get with it. Remember, all who take up the challenge and have them to the store by June 25th get a $2 off coupon & a chance at this month's drawing. I'm giving away a page kit using the Shore Thing paper. I can't wait to learn more about Your Defining Moment.

I Have a Website!

I know, you say, "But Pam, you already have a website". And technically that is true! But, I can't get into it...it is listed to some obsure office live account that I thought I knew, but that thinking was wrong. So, it is worthless...cute, but worthless! So, now, like I was saying before I interrupted myself....
I have a website (I wrote all my log-in info in my day runner) that is a little basic, but I can tweak it over time. The site address is:

I've listed a complete rundown of classes and Dream Events...check it out! You can even register for classes on line (I don't have a paypal acct, but will join the 90's technology soon).
Ta Da!

Store update

The painting on the store is coming along...slowly. The walls were FILTHY and I had to wash them..too time consuming. But they are clean and the work is begun.
I'm keeping the walls my signature green...this one is a little toned down...and pairing it with a chocolate brown & soft pink. It is very striking.
Patty reminded me that you don't have an address for the new place (she's such a detail person)...so yesterday I had to look it up.. it is 3417 S. 113th W Ave. 1-A.
I've listed some upcoming classes & events for the following months. I'm looking to really "beef up" my class schedule. It seems that is what so many of you like to do, so I'm gonna do it. And I'm adding a beginning stamping class in July for those who want to start "really" stamping. (I love to use them on my layouts)
So, hopefully this weekend (I'm having a scrap retreat at my house for 5 ladies) I'll have the paint washed off my hands and be able to show you the mini pages I'm making for baby Ethan's photo book. (You heard me...not a scrapbook album..) I'm looking forward to hosting the girls and getting to scrap.
Gotta run
