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!
