Let's Party!

We hope that you are planning on stopping by tomorrow (Saturday, October 3) sometime between 10am-5pm to help celebrate our 12th anniversary. Here are some of of the pertinent details:

FREE goodie bag just for stopping in (one per household, please).

Guest Author- Mollie Cox Bryan is back! She'll be joining us from 1:00-3:00 with her latest release, Scrapbook of the Dead. She'll have her other books from the Cumberland Creek Mystery series available as well for signing.

Free Demo Schedule:

10:30 AM - 12:00 PM

ColorBursts with New Rubber Necker Stamps - Deb

Sizzix Inksheets - Paula

12:30 - 2:00 PM

All Kinds of Watercolor Markers - Cami

Dreamweaver Stencil Art - Marilynn

2:30 - 4:00 PM

Stamping with MFT Backgrounds - Deb

Sizzix Framelits - Paula

Free Make and Takes- one project in the morning from 10:30 - 1:00 and the second project available from 1:30 - 4:00.

Stamp Swap- 11:45 a.m. Simply bring a new or gently used stamp that you won't be using any more. Please bring it wrapped so that it will be a surprise! We will then play a fun swapping game, and everyone will get a new (to you) stamp!

Parking- If there is a possibility that Runnymeade Creek will overflow its banks (and flood our back parking lot), the police will come barricade the back lot. However, there are still plenty of parking options - many more than in our old location! DO NOT PARK in the Comfort Inn parking lot. They WILL TOW! Instead park on the near side of the Outback Shopping Center. There are TONS of spaces there, and it is actually a shorter walk than if you had parked in our back lot. That option is always available to you.

Reminder- For those of you who earned coupons in January, please understand that we cannot redeem them on Open House Day. We hope you will join us and partake of everything the day has to offer and then come back on another day in October to take advantage of your coupon savings. We also will not be able to do Copic marker refills during the Open House. You are welcome to drop of your makers though to be refilled later in the week.

Community Outreach - Embry Rucker Community Shelter in Reston

The Embry Rucker Community Shelter (ERCS) is a 70-bed residential shelter that provides healthy, safe, emergency housing for families and single men and women. They are dedicated to helping clients overcome the circumstances that led to their homelessness, and facilitate their transition to stable housing.

I want to say thank you to the other customers too and thank you to you for still being around! It is always an enjoyable experience coming to your store or taking your classes. The Open House was fun: I saw some demos, saw some samples for classes I hope to take and bought some great product. It's so nice that you also make it about giving back to the community and I brought some things for the homeless shelter. Angela and everyone who works there are all wonderful. I'm not a big shopper and I know my little purchases aren't the ones keeping the store in business so every time I come I feel so lucky that you are still around. So thank you to the big shoppers and Thank YOU to everyone at the store!
