Now that Thanksgiving has passed we start getting ready for Christmas and saying good-bye to a very grueling 2010. I don't know about the rest of you but I am anxious for a new chapter...a new year...a fresh start. 2010 has been a tough year for me and for Carol and we are looking forward to what this new year has to offer. Things seem to be turning around slowly. Of course it will take a while for the West Coast to feel some relief...but knowing it's coming offers some much needed hope.
On to the good stuff....
Some of you have heard Laura and us talking about having a New Year's Eve Party on the Friday nite show. Well...we are gearing up to scrap the nite away. She may even go three hours ...depending on the attendance....so mark your calendars and grab you paper, tools and snax...and get ready for a wild night!!! We want to give all of you ...our faithful followers a special treat...a night just for you. We have the greatest group of ladies (and a few gents). We are so very grateful for each and every one of you. So ...Laura, Carol and I have been scheming and planning a night full of projects and prizes. There will be tons of give-aways...and these will all be really cool items. Laura will be giving away some of "Laura's Favorite Things"...you know...those items you see sitting on her desk show.. after show...after show. We will be dropping hints... And Carol and I will be giving away lots of your favorite things...like a Pink ATG and some "Timmy stuff" just to mention a few There will be some more hints in the days to come so keep checking here and Laura's blog...(her link is on the sidebar)...to see what some of the other prizes will be and how you will have to enter to participate in drawings.
We were trying to figure a way for everyone to participate in the fun...so we are going to have everybody sign up to put your name on the master list ...just for that night. We will pick names randomly from that list only....so if you don't sign up ...you won't be included. This way you won't need to be on the show to win. You won't need to be on the chat to win. We will include our International ladies (and gents...Steven)Hopefully this way will keep the chat sane that nite...hahaha!!!...and give everyone a chance to win something AWESOME! There will be full details posted on both blogs sometime this weekend and Laura will talk about it on the show Friday (tomorrow) night...So lets have some FUN!!!!
A little shop talk....the Rosette Ribbon will be back in next week and the G45 Once Upon A Springtime will be in today!! Yipee....You all cleaned us out in 24 hrs!!! I think we set a record!!! Anyway ...we now have plenty...Also...the punches Laura will be using tonight are in the store now.
We need your projects for the Customer Spotlight so send us you pictures so we can feature you in the Newsletter. Also ...if you have a favorite holiday recipe...send it to Carol so she can add that to the Newsletter too. We have some recipes already but we are looking for something really WOW!!! Something everyone will want to make for their holiday guests.
E-Mail them to firstname.lastname@example.org
As I have said before...I don't post often...but when I do it is usually something really good!!! Check back over the weekend and we will have all the details posted for the drawings...
