October News

It's October!!           
            The leaves are changing colour, there is a crispness in the air, and it is a fantastic month to get some amazing photos of those Thanksgiving feasts, the colours of fall, and those little ghouls and goblins! And of course, you will want to scrapbook those memories.... so grab a coffee, sit back, and read about all the exciting new products and such that we have to offer to get that scrapbooking done!

 Cards for Kids!! 
Just a little update.... A Huge Hug to Tammie White and Shirley Bish as they will be delivering 2 huge boxes of cards to SickKids Hospital in Toronto this coming week, and we want to take this opportunity to give a HUGE THANK YOU to all those wonderful people who have donated some pretty amazing cards!!! The kids will love them! I will update you on the delivery later!
We are going to continue to collect cards for the kids until the end of the year, so please help us out by donating some cards! They can be any theme, just keep the inside blank. These are for the kids to give to their visitors and such.
Our last 2 sessions of card making were a blast, so we have decided that this months cards for Kids session will be
Sunday October 19 from 10am - 4pm!
Stop by and bring your stash to make a card or two for a child to give to someone they love!

            Our Garage Sale was a huge success and we want to thank everyone who participated by bringing in their sale items and for those of you who waited in line to shop!  Watch for a spring cleaning garage sale in the spring!
