Scrap Pink Ladies-

Our big 12 hour crop to benefit Susan G. Komen for the Cure® is this Saturday at the West Stafford Firehouse. We have our pink t-shirts ready to wear! Doors will open at 10am with lots of fun and excitement planned. Everyone who attends will receive a goodie bag from us; be sure to look inside for your very special discount coupon. Lunch, dinner and beverages will be provided but feel free to bring any special snacks that you like to munch on while cropping. Please advise us prior to Friday if you have any special dietary restrictions or food allergies. You are free to come and go whenever you wish during the 12 hours.

In addition to the fabulous door prizes and raffle items that we have for you, we will also have a Scrapbook Scavenger Hunt and a layout contest. The theme of the contest is “A woman who inspires me”. You can make your page ahead of time or work on it at the crop. Pages must be completed (with journaling) by 8:00pm and croppers will vote for their favorite.

For those of you unable to attend we have a great gift basket loaded with product that we are selling raffle tickets for. Tickets are available in the store until Saturday for $1 each or 12 for $10. The drawing will be held at the Scrap Pink Crop at 8:00pm and you do not need to be present to win. All of the money from this raffle will be donated to Susan G. Komen for the Cure®.

If you would like to join us for this fun-filled event you can call the store to register by Friday at noon. Cost is $35 per person and $10 of that fee goes directly to Susan G. Komen for the Cure®. Thank you for your support!

Wow, the tag sale was a success!

Lots of people came out and got some great deals. Several of our "vendors" sold well over $100 of their stuff and now have store credit to go on a shopping spree- How fun!

If you weren't able to take part this time, don't fret. I'm sure we'll do it again sometime, maybe in the spring, we'll see.

Help! I'm buried in Scrapbook stuff!!!!

As if our darling UPS man, Jay, hasn't been bringing us enough stuff that we do not have room for... Yesterday was the customer drop off day for our Tag Sale on Sunday. We had hoped to keep everything in the class room so we didn't have to deal with the weather and lugging it all outside and then back in at the end of the day - But NO WAY! These ladies have stashes that put me to shame! Two are former store owners, 4 are current or former SU or CTMH consultants, and at least two are former CM consultants, and all of them are admitted shopaholics.

If you are looking for anything unusual or retired you need to be here on Sunday. I just cannot believe how much stuff is here.

Oh, and we got some very nice NEW stuff too! Most of it is still stacked on the counter because we can't fit it any where else, but you are free to buy it off the counter! Maybe if it all sells we won't have to find a home for it!

It's going to be a ton of fun. Check out the cool t-shirts we ordered. You can buy one when you sign up and wear it the day of the tour!

Morning Classes

Did you know we now have lots of morning classes scheduled? In fact, Donna's very popular card club has a class this coming Monday, September 10th. This class is a great bargain at only $28. You make 4 fabulous cards and you get to take home the featured stamp. This month we are featuring one from Hero Arts. There is still time to sign up- but you must call before Friday afternoon so Donna can prepare enough materials!

So much happening at The Inspiration Station

We are entering into the busiest time of the year here at The Inspiration Station. Our class calendar is bursting at the seams (so is our sales floor!) and we have a bunch of special events lined up.

This weekend, Labor Day weekend, we are having a sale. We will be closed on Monday though, so you need to get in soon. Next Saturday, in addition to two amazing classes that Dawn is teaching, we will begin the registration for the next Bus Tour. The 5 Store Scrapbook Tour will be held on Sunday, October 21st. We are working with the same stores as last trip and even though the bus company tried to raise the price again we were locked in months ago so we have been able to keep the cost to you the same.

The following weekend, Sunday September 16th, we will have our first ever Customer Tag Sale. Many of our customers have signed up to sell off their unused paper crafting products and that means great deals for you on things you might not be able to get elsewhere! The sale begins at 11am and ends at 4pm. If you are one of the people who will be selling at the Tag Sale, your labels are printed and ready for you to pick up.

A new start

Since the kids are back in school and making a fresh start, I thought it would be a good time to make a fresh start with my blog. I have been meaning to do it for a while but just sending out the weekly newsletter and updating the website takes up more time than I have. Thankfully, Dawn has taken over updating the website so that should free up some time for this.
