Crazy!!!

Yep, everything is crazy around here- even more than the normal craziness that I experience on a regular basis…

I’m opening a store!  Yay!  Adam has been so incredibly supportive and I couldn’t be more excited to return to my one true love.  The store is going to be here in Baxter Village (www.villageofbaxter.com)- only five blocks from our house.  I am so excited and plowing though all of the necessary yucky stuff like writing a business plan and getting a tax ID so I can get to the stuff I love like ordering inventory and planning the layout of the store.  Not to mention getting classes and displays together.  I’m almost done with the yucky stuff. 

Oh yeah- I need a design team- any takers?

So I went to CHA to stock my store last Friday.  The only glitch- I was only there for five hours!  That’s right, I ordered half of my inventory in less than five hours- have I mentioned that I’ve done this before?  My first stop was the Fiskars booth and straight to Heidi Grace- I was so happy to see her and Terri- I just love them!  I wished that I’d had more time to stop and socialize, but I had a lot to do in a very little amount of time.  I sill saw a lot of Fiskateers and even had a chance to stop and talk for a few moments.  I ordered a ton of QuicKuts and all of the new lines from My Minds Eye and way more.

The opening for Southern Scrapbooks is October first- I only have about two months to get this all going- wish me luck!

    You could sell ice to eskimos. You will be a great success and that area is so lucky to have you. I bought the quickutz after I talked to you. It was so great that I ran into you. Hope to talk to you soon. Good luck!! I know what a big step it is, but you will thrive in this new adventure.
