Making changes

Change is good.
No, really it is. It gets us out of our routine and makes us pay attention, notice new things and think in new ways. I know, for many of you change is hard; but it is exciting at the same time. So we are making some changes. Nothing major; just moving the store around to (hopefully) make things flow a bit better.

For a long time we have wanted to create a section to hold all things Tim Holtz; Ranger products, Idea-ology products, Stamper's Anonymous etc. The problem is, of course, that Tim has a very eclectic style and he tends to use a bit of everything. Hmm, now that I think of it- that's kinda how our whole store is... Anyway, he has put him name on a boatload of products and now with his upcoming release from Sizzix there will be even more. As anyone who has ever been into The Inspiration Station knows, we don't have any "extra" space; we use every inch. So it time to do what we do best - Get Creative!!!

It's amazing to me how we always manage to find/make more room for things when we need to. Of course, we really do NOT want to talk about the back hallway... Yeah, that place that we call the "Clearance Section". Right now it looks more like a rummage sale! Donna has suggested that we have a little indoor "parking lot sale" to try to move it all out. I think she may be onto something. Now, I just need to find a weekend when we could do it - and soon!

But I'm rambling... the point is, we have been moving things around and it may be hard for you to find things for a while. We apologize for the inconvenience but in the long run I think you will be very pleased. If you need something, please ask and we'll do our best to locate it!

Change is always good, in this case a customer may find something they didn't know you had!!

As for Tim's new stuff . . . it is awesome! I am already working on a list to email to you after viewing his blog over the last couple of weeks!

See you soon, ATC is next week!
