Sugar Hoarder?

Funny thing when you start packing to move.  You find all sorts of things.  Like the hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of sweetener packets I found in the back room.  Four years of crops and coffee...and this is what you get.  I figure since I'm now unemployed, I'll use these to barter for next few cups of Starbucks.

My decision to close the shop is still so surreal.  I really thought I'd be embarking an a new journey by moving the shop.  Still I am at peace with my decision.  As I look back over the last 4 years, I have so much to be thankful for!  Here are just a few of my musings...

  At the crazy age of 29, I got to follow a crazy 
dream of opening a scrapbook store.

I have been surrounded by the most loving
and supportive family and friends a girl could ask for.

  My faith in God assures me that this is not the end,
 but the beginning of something wonderful and new. 

  I've been privileged to meet some amazing and remarkable
 people at the shop and count some of them as my dearest friends! 

  I've learned so much and am so much
 stronger than I ever thought I could be.

Last Minute Treats

If you're needing last minute treats, check out the tubes from SRM Press.  Their popular tube now comes in two additional variations...the wand and the mini.  The wand is perfect for m & m's (yummy!) and the mini is actually perfect as a place card holder.  So here are some festive ideas featuring stickers from SRM, also!

The tube and the wand are $1 each  (sorry, candy and card not included) and the mini is 75 cents!
