One Kit Left!

Ok kids...only one left. I am *THRILLED* at the response to the page kits. The Bo Bunny line was fun to work with and I can't believe I have almost sold out.

Gearing up for my second kit...found some lovely holiday paper from Melissa Francis that I just HAD to play with. And I think that it's never too early to get holiday pages done...or perhaps catch up on past years. I'll post later this week when it becomes available.

Vanessa and I are also gearing up for new Scrap Can Do! releases. Our previous kits have had great well that we are down to our last few. New releases this fall include a "Disney-type" album, new baby albums, a "berry sweet" album and more. Look for the new "travel" album to be released later this month. I'm tired already just THINKING about it!

Looks like I'll be busy for a while. Happy Scrappin'!!

And...So How Did It Go?

Let me tell you...

The owner of the store is fantastic...she's a peach to work for! I feel right at home with all of the paper and embellies and ribbon. There are (of course) things I have to the register (we use different software than what I am used to), where things are, store polices, etc. But all in all, it's just grand.

Today I helped this nice lady (she's 80 but doesn't look a day over 65!) help start her scrapbooking adventure. She had never done scrapping before but wanted to put together something with her pics from the pageant she was just in. (CA is so different from back east!) We have one-on-one sessions that a person can sign up for, and since there were 3 of us on today (and me being the newbie) I was asked to help her out by the owner. What a sweet lady! But I felt confident & comfortable helping her start her book.

I talked with the owner about teaching classes and she was excited about the idea. I will be teaching in Sept and the woman I helped today wants to sign up already! I think I'll continue to teach once a month...just like at NESC. :)

For only working 4 hours and being all excited...I am pooped!

AND...I have only 2 more Just Scrappin' Happy Page Kits hurry on over here if you still want one...cuz they're going...going...going...

Getting Back To Work

Tomorrow, my vacation is finally over. I am rejoining the work force and starting my new position at the scrapbook store here in CA. I can't explain how excited I am to be getting back to work...a little anxious too because it will be different from NESC. But I treated myself to a crop on Friday night and was pleasantly surprised at how "at home" I felt already. (But I did call Vanna to "check in" and talk "cropping." AND I was Facebooking Debbie.) But I met some new gals who were very friendly. I think I'm gonna be ok! :)

Tune in tomorrow to see how I did!

AND...for those of you who have asked...I am now offering "Just Scrappin' Happy" Page Kits. I have listed my 1st kit here. Same great design efforts (by yours truly), same great detailed instructions and a color photo. Plus I offer FREE SHIPPING! I have a limited number of kits available, so don't delay!
