Denise Turns 50!

Since I am sure my mother will not be checking the Blog tonight and I wanted to post this last minute in case anyone did not see the e-mail. We're celebrating Denise's 50th Birthday at the shop tomorrow! Stop by if you get the chance, I know she's love to see you, here are all the details:

Our favorite scrapbook store owner, Denise is turning 50 and we want to celebrate! We would love for you to help us surprise Denise this Thursday with a little shop party. So here's the deal: Denise is normally off on Thursday but we have tricked her into working that morning even though it's her birthday but when she gets there, she'll soon find out that we're really having a little party for her with cupcakes and lemonade!

We would love for any of you who can stop by Thursday morning and just wish her a happy birthday, I know that she is friends with so many of you and this would definitely make her feel loved and appreciated. I am certain we can keep her there until at least noon or 1:00 and she may even stay later than that if there are lots of people coming by. So be sure to stop by Thursday morning or on your lunch break and wish her a Happy 50th Birthday!

We are also planning a little surprise for her in the morning when she opens. She thinks she is opening the store but really Barbara and I will be there early, we are going to park at Publix and leave the lights off so she thinks she is walking into an empty store so when she gets there we'll be able to yell "Surprise"! If you are interested in coming to surprise her, we'd love to have you, just make sure you are there by about 9:30 so we have plenty of time to hide and be ready. Please e-mail me for more details or to let me know you would like to be there early

Remember, this is a surprise so do not mention it to Denise and No phone calls about it since she will probably be the one answering the phone. You may e-mail me or reply to this e-mail which will automatically be sent to me if you have any questions. If you can't make it Thursday, she will be working all day Friday so feel free to stop by then if you would like.

One more thing, as a party gift for showing up on Thursday, mention Denise's 50th birthday at the register and receive 10% off your total order! What better way to spend her birthday than to have a fun, busy day at the shop!

Thursday, July 21st
10:00am - 1:00pm-ish (e-mail me if you'd like to come earlier for the surprise)
Come say happy birthday to Denise!

Operation We R Grateful

We are excited to take part in We R Memory Keepers Operation We R Grateful this summer! This is a fantastic way to be creative and show a soldier how grateful you for their service. There are two ways you can help:

1. Make handmade cards at home for soldiers to send to their loved ones and drop them off at the shop by August 1st. Theme suggestions: Thinking of you, love, miss you, anniversary, thank you, birthday, get well, and major holidays. Remember, these are blank, handmade cards that soldiers will send to their families to keep in touch. They may include sentiments but cannot have glitter and must say "Operation Write Home" somewhere on the back.

2. Join us for our Make & Give Class on Thursday, July 14th from 11:00am - 4:00pm. We will have misc. supplies and blank cards set up for you to use to make cards for soldiers. Please bring any materials you would like to use and share (a great way to use up older product and scraps) and also be sure to bring basics such as scissors, paper cutter, and adhesive. Make it a social event and bring some friends so you can all make cards for soldiers. We will have refreshments for you while you work.

If you cannot make it on Thursday, July 14th, feel free to come another day and make cards in the shop. Any time we are open and do not have a class going on, you are welcome to come use some supplies and make cards to leave for the soldiers.

Once we receive all the cards by August 1st, we will send them in and the store with the most cards sent in will receive prizes to give out to their customers! So not only are you doing something nice for someone else, but you may even win a prize!

Feel free to call the shop with any questions or for more details at 813-269-7946 and we hope to see you soon for our Make & Give class!
