Lots of hustle and bustle this past week...seems no matter how much we plan ahead there is always that last minute must do stuff! Spent most of my day with daughter Sheila baking chocolate chip and peanut butter cookies, wrapping presents, and making our famous chicken salad for dinner tonight. Chris is on her way to see Baby Ava for the first time and I am patiently waiting to hear if it is true that she is the prettiest baby girl in the world and gifted too! The store will be closed about one week...Dec. 24th thru Jan 1st...a much needed time for all of us to spend time with our families. Web orders will ship as usual...and the new Red Lead rubber stamps will be at the store and on the web by Jan. 2nd...large box of new charms is waiting to be opened...valentine papers are in...new kits are in the making...Chris just called and YES! it is true, Ava is the prettiest baby in the world...fingers crossed for some cute Christmas pics soon!
Still waiting for more Ava photos...Chris has been scrapping up a storm! New Red Lead word stamps are on the way and should be at the store by late next week...Valentine too! If you didn't get in on our Itty Bitty Vintage Valentine Book Swap, we are dreaming up another fun itty bitty for the New Year...any suggestions? We are waiting patiently for lots of Valentine charms to fly in...Kimberly Poloson scrap paper is in...luv it! Hope to see you at the store or talk to you on the phone...xo...Chris and Sharon
p.s. don't forget to take some time for yourself this week...treat yourself to a long soak in the tub with plenty of bubbles swirling about...indulge in that mocha latte with double whipped cream...how about 1 hour without answering your cell...new haricut? pedicure? manicure? earrings? Have a beautiful day!
