Hi everyone! We are getting really excited about our move to Herndon and wanted to share some of the process with you. We are also looking for help this Saturday, and we have an awesome storage cabinet for sale.
Here are some pictures of our new space that we have been remodeling.
View as you walk in the door. The slat board is getting ready to go on the walls.
You can also see the classroom from the front door. Notice the classroom has its own door as well as lots of windows.
Our current register space is falling apart, so we decided to get a new one. Angela is already working hard.
View from the other end of the store. The classroom is back behind Angela and the register.
Trust me. It holds a lot of stuff. We were thinking $40 OBO. You will also have to move the cabinet from the store. Give us a call if you are interested. Proceeds will go towards the Happy Stamper rebuild fund.
HELP THIS SATURDAY
We are looking for volunteers this Saturday, Oct 25 to help us with the build-out at the new store. In particular, we need people to hold slat board on the wall and people who are handy with a drill. We are also looking for people who have a level tool they can bring. If you can participate, please call the store and let us know what time between 9:30am-4pm you can come so that we can coordinate everyone.
Look for more updates soon!

Many of you have been asking about our plans now that our building is going to be torn down. After 11 years in our Reston location, we decided to move to a new location 2.6 miles down the road (I checked) in Herndon. We will be moving from an industrial park to an office park. The best part of the new location? Lots and lots of windows.....even in the classroom!
Our new address will be:
208 Elden St
We will be located on the second floor, but don't worry. There is an elevator as well as stairs. The Comfort Inn is right next door for those of you coming in from out of town, and you can easily walk to places for food and drink.
Our nearest large intersection is Elden Street and Fairfax County Parkway:
Here is a closer look at the location:
The easiest landmark to see in the building is Carpool. To get to our store, you will go through the front door under the 208
We don't have an exact move in date yet, but we will continue to keep you updated.
If you want to read more about the move and information if you want to help, you can read it all in the latest store newsletter:
I hope you will continue to be part of our stamping family in the new location!

Stop in Thursday any time between 10 - 8 and make one for yourself. It's so cute, you could even frame it and use it as a decoration!

Join me tomorrow between 12 & 2, and explore your "messy" side. We'll be playing with both the translucent stains and the pigment metallic sprays. We'll use a couple of different stencils to add layers and dimensions, and toss in some vellum for texture/contrast. And, believe it or not, with all that's going on in this card, it's quick and easy to mass produce. See you Tuesday!
