2007 Christmas Open House is History!

Hey All!

Thanks to all of you that turned out and made our 'Snowflake Fantasy' such a success!

I also want to thank my whole crew for their tireless dedication to transforming the store so beautifully!! An event like this could never come about without the dedication of these wonderful employees and friends! Thanks Katie, Vickie, Ronni, Kathy, Jackie, Tracey & Charlotte! I am so indebted to all worked tirelessly to transform the store and it shows!!! Now get some rest!
We are checking on the possibility of getting another order of the battery operated pillars that were so popular and a few other items that seemed to fly off the shelves...and we are still bringing out merchandise that didn't make it out for the Open stay in touch!
I too will be in touch!
Take care!

Open House is Here...and almost over!


Where does the time go? I had every intention of posting leading up to the Open House...showing you all the boxes and mess that we make preparing for our big event. You would NOT believe the mess we can make! Then all the sudden we are two days into the Open House and it's my first chance to get back to the Blog!
As usual, we were working until 3 & 4 in the morning...I'm thinking I am getting way too old for this...and then all you lovely people arrive and make it all soooo worthwhile! The weariness fades with each and every oohhhh and aahhhh...thanks for all the wonderful comments too! You validate what I do by not holding back...and I THANK YOU!! Our four walls were bursting with all the people that have turned out for the first two was so much fun to see all of you...and the fairy dust was a flying!! (Those of you that were there know exactly what I am talking about).

And yes, 'Real Men Do Come Inside' -- (thank you for that, Mr. Tom Smith!) And even some men (1) did partake in the fairy dust that was flying! They obviously throw caution to the wind and go with the flow up there in Ontario!! ;-)) I thank him for that!!

I thought I would share a few photos of what some of the displays looked like before the onslaught of people arrived!! Enjoy...and if you're out and about tomorrow...stop on by...the fairy dust will STILL be flying!! And the delicious dessert bars will make a return visit...that in itself is reason to stop in...if not for the good company!!!!!!!!
Congrats to the winners of our door prizes so far...Cheryl, Liz, Pam & Kathy!!!
And thank you for allowing me the ability to live my dream, and the chance to serve all of you!!!
Happy Holidays!

Hey All You Prim Galz!!!

Wait until you see the great prim stuff we checked in today for the Christmas Open House!! There are some really fantastic items! I ordered so much of this stuff at the beginning of the year, it's almost like seeing it for the first time! It's amazing how you forget what is coming in!

I truly believe we are going to have our most wonderful Open House yet!! We've got it all going on...Prim & little something for everyone! And back by popular demand are the wonderful old fashioned filled candy canes...and this year we also will have a candy cane that tastes like Apple Pie...and it truly does! Ask me how I know!

So get yourselves psyched...our Christmas Open House is 2 weeks from tonight! Where has the year gone?

Have a great weekend!

P.S. Our Fall Merchandise is 20% OFF...and there's still some great stuff left! So hurry in soon!

It's October and I'm all about Christmas!

We are checking in Christmas merchandise like crazy...and running out of room to put it to boot!!

Our fabulous soft greens that we hang over our doorways are expected in the coming week, then we'll start hanging those to get a head start. Although they'll not be decorated until later...because we want to surprise you!!

We're very excited about the Christmas holiday this year!! It is going to be FAN-TABULOUS!

Have a wonderful weekend! Stacy

Has Summer Returned?

Hello All!
I just wanted to catch up with you...I came down with that nasty cold that is going around...but I'm finally feeling better!

We are just about together in our new 'girl's room. We are waiting on our shelves for the wall and some furniture pieces...but all the great goodies are out. We are loaded with lots of great little things that little girls love!

We are busy trying to get organized so we can jump into preparations for our Christmas Open House the end of the month...Yikes! Thanks to all of you who have stopped in and offered your encouragement! It is so appreciated!
Have a great night!
