WOW-What an awesome DAY!!!!!!!!!!


It was GREAT to see all you on Saturday, what an awesome crowd, we had over 75 scrappers participate in EXPO day!!!!!!! We had such a good time & hope you did too. Normally we have tons of scrappers waiting at the door well before 10am with noses pressed to the door trying to catch a peek!!!! However, some decided to wait a bit to time it just right for the drawing at 1 (well close to 1-thanks for everyone's patience while we checked everyone out before the drawing) so it was nice & relaxing morning!!! The big hit, as usual, were the demos of the Invisibles, Chomper, ZING (amaZING), Metallic Chalks, Mega Masks!!!! WOW-MEGA KUDOS to Christy for creating these awesome make/takes & kits!!!!! KUDOS to Christy, Brooke, Noelle & Vicki for these cool demos!!!!!!! The kits were wiped out which is always cool because it lets us know that YOU liked these products as much as we did!!!!!

MEGA KUDOS to Jade & Jori for an outstanding day of greeting, checking out & bagging and there was lots of checking out & bagging (he he); Special thanks to Terri who was trying to shop but pitched in for a few minutes when we didn't have enough hands before the 1pm drawing. As always, thanks from the bottom of my heart-these girls put in so much time & effort getting ready for this big EVENT days-I definitely could not & would not want to do it without them!!!!

So many cool products . . . The ones I kept seeing over & over at the check out were: La De Dots (doodlebug flocked polka dot papers), Chompers, Metallic Chalks, Metallic Papers, Life Story (see Jade's layout in earlier post), kits, Bisous Kits, ZING, ZING, and more ZING, and LOTS more that i can't remember. We'll try to highlight a few of the products over the next few weeks because is was IMPOSSIBLE to really see everything in that one day-there were over 300 NEW papers; there were tons of stickers, thickers, chipboard, stamps, flowers, laser cuts, bling.

Congratulations to MARY LIVINGSTON, the winner of the $500 basket from American Crafts!!!! We're so happy for you-I guess you could see that from my face!!!

AND, look at this!!!! I have to say this was my FAVORITE thing that i saw at the CHA show in California this year. I definitely COULD NOT BREATHE without it. We are taking this special orders now, (cool thing, your card isn't charged until May) for this awesome ZEBRA Rolling Bag, Tote Bag. These bags are not available anywhere right now, the manufacturer loaned them to us for this special day so you could touch & fall in love with them after TONS & TONS OF BEGGING by yours truly. Orders will be shipped to Memory Mania somewhere around May 10th.

Thanks to everyone for coming out - it was such an enjoyable day to visit & share this awesome hobby we have.
