so what's new????
Stampavie stamps (absolutely adorable)
Hero Arts stamps
Heidi Grace Forever Yours
Making Memories new travel line
Penny Black(not too many left of these)
and more I'm sure, the brain is just not back to full power yet.

Just a quick update......... we have been here many,many ,many hours. we've drank many,many,many coffees and we've counted many many,many products!!! This feels like this is never going to end. Thanks goodness for my helpers....they always come inwith smiles on their faces (o.k sometimes the smiles fade throught the day but really, who can smile for 15 hours straight)

June 20,2009

Well, I just got back from seeing Chicago, the play with my dear hubby. It was really entertaining!! As far as store news, the ribbon wall is getting emptier and emptier.The real counting starts tomorrow. I have been finding little hidden products all over the store. So for those of you who have already come by, it may pay to come again as more items are added to clearance as I find them. 75% off......who can resist.

By the way for all you Stamping Bella lovers, I have it from a reliable source that there will be a new release on Thursday June 25th. I will be placing an order at that point. For those of you who are not familiar with these stamps, you should definately have a look. Also on blogabella, there is a friday challenge every week and then the previous challenge cards are posted. I have come across soooo many great ideas there, they make me want more of her stamps!!! Josee, I always love seeing your cards there!!!

Whew, what a day!! 10:00am - midnight!! and inventory hasn't really started! Although we have taken down half the ribbon wall and counted it, there is still another half to go. I really hope that this system works out as wonderful as we hope it will. It will mean information will be readily available at our fingertips and less lineups and waiting for our customers(my main focus).

The sale went well today, although our Copic Marker selection is down at a bare minimum once again as well as our Ketto Stamp collection. Both of these are hard to keep in stock even on a non sale weekend so you can only imagine how crazy they are now.

Back to work for me............need to re-order the staples or when we re-open we won't have any glue left!!

June 17,2009

Well, no one could complain about the weather today. The sun was so warm and inviting. It as beautiful. We have been very busy tidying up around the store for our inventory count next week. Also we have just announced a huge sale for this weekend. Everything is on sale!!! We received a new Creative Imaginations line today called South Seas, definitely a beachy line.
For those who haven't stopped by recently, the 2 new Fancy Pants lines are gorgeous. They are disappearing fast, so is the new October Afternoon!! Anyone who was short on Copic colors can come by and pick some up as we have re-stocked our collections.
Well it's getting late and I have another training session for the new POS tomorrow. So much to do soooooo little time.

June 10, 2009

Well, I don't know about anyone else but I am ready for the warm summer weather to arrive. I think we have had enough cold damp days to last us a while. Nothing new arrived at the store today but we are waiting for Fancy Pants and October Afternoon. Hopefully we can have these before the weekend!!

June 9.2009

Hi Everyone,

So,I have finally joined the world of blogging. I am hoping that through this blog I can keep all of you very up-to-date on the going ons at the store. This way you can check with me daily as to what has come in, gone on sale, or any other news we may have for you.
The first bit of information I need to share with you all is that we are getting a new POS system for the store. This is good news, the bad news is that we have to close for a few days to count all our inventory. We will be closed June 22,23 & 24(St. Jean Baptiste). We will re-open, hopefully in grand fashion, on June 25th!

Well that is the news for today, check back tomorrow to see how things are going.
