Upcoming events

Hello Everyone!
I’m finally taking a few moments to update my sad and lonely blog.  I really don’t know how some people manage to keep their blogs updated with interesting and fresh ideas on a daily basis. It’s just so hard to get myself to stop moving long enough to do it.  Anyway…

Yesterday was our Summer Camp Bus Tour.  This was the first year we were involved in this particular tour.  Our campers had a fabulous time visiting the stores and doing make and takes, even though it was a long day.  In the end, we were all very happy and very tired.  Several ladies came back and asked us to sign them up for the next trip.  Whoa, ladies!!!  Let me get rested from this one first!  I’m sure we will be back to our normal Spring Bus Tour sometime in April of 2013, but it is far too early to know specifics.

In the meantime, I still need to sell my house…  This whole thing about staging the house and having showings without any offers is really getting old.  I want to get my stuff out of the boxes and closets it’s hiding in so I can play!  The new house will be ready about the first of September so I can start moving stuff in there when we get back from vacation.  Vacation?  What’s that?  We haven’t taken a vacation since 2007!  Oh the joys of having our own business!  But yes, my husband and I will be going on a cruise to New Brunswick and Nova Scotia - Our first vacation without kids since 1998.  When we get back, we will be moving. 

At the store, Terry and Donna will be keeping things running (smoothly, I hope).  We have a LOT of great classes scheduled in September including Zentangle Basics, Christmas Cards, and our very special guest, Suzanne Dean.  If you have never taken a class with Suzanne you are in for a treat.  She is a phenomenal instructor and one of the best teachers for Copic Markers I have ever met.  This will be her only Connecticut appearance for this year, so go to her website to register NOW.  Seriously.  You don’t want to miss her.  She’s THAT good.

In October, We have the fabulous Cheryl Mezzetti coming back to The Inspiration Station on the 27th.  We are still waiting on details for which projects she will teach but we do know there will be two classes.  Mark your calendar now so you can be sure to make it.

We are also making plans for an all-day Halloween Crop on October 20th.  Twelve hours of crop time that will be Spooktacular!  My Pinterest account has been working overtime with ideas, this is going to be so much fun! Call the store to sign up right away because space is limited.

Also in the works…another visit from our friend, Ken Oliver!  In case you didn’t know, Ken is now working for Spellbinders and has been traveling around the country as their education coordinator as well as working on their design team.  It looks like he may be visiting us sometime in October.  We’ll keep you posted.

Ok, that’s enough for now.  I need to save something for a future post, right?  Have a great day!

Wow! So many things to chose from and so little funds available for crafting. Will set my priorities and call soon to reserve a spot or two thanks for the heads up good luck selling the house. I remember trying to sell my house back in 2004. Not easy. Lol

Have an awesome time on your cruise - how exciting!!! I love cruising!

I pity you though moving. I just went through a horrible move. But, luckily, my craft room is the largest room in the house so I finally have a place for just about everything I've accumulated over the years!

Good luck and thanks for updating your blog!

Great classes coming up - good to have things to plan for and look forward to. You will love New Brunswick & Nova Scotia: my Dad was from there! Take a sweater and a windbreaker.
