Happy Monday to Everyone, come check out Monday Madness

Just a reminder: Memory Mania closes at 5pm on Mondays now.
We will be open to 8 on most Tuesdays.

Come check out Monday Madness Today-its a secret, but its always really cool!!!
Oh, we have a few Bazzill Blow Out Bags - 50 sheets of cardstock for $15.99

I LOVE this awesome Kraft Paper line from Jillibean. Even if you can't use the trucks & traffic signs, there are a couple of generic patterns that would make a really cute layout.

Come check out this cool new Core Impressions paper-you sand each paper to get a surprise design & color--way cool!!!

Check out this precious tray and Christy has created one on display at the store!! Oops-there are only a few of these left!!

Photographs can touch our hearts and bring back memories with lot of laughs or tears; They are definitely the starting point of any great layout!!

P.S. On another note-I've always heard that pictures are worth 1,000 words but let me tell you words are PRICELESS too-hearing my son's voice yesterday after 4 weeks had me reeling with emotions-tears, giggles and speechless. <3

Visions of pattern paper danced in my head . . . 2 days until EXPO

My Girls created by Darlene Quebedeaux

Timeless Beauties created by Darlene Quebedeaux

Makahwehl Lithified Cliffs created by Pam Boudreaux

WOWWOWOWOW!!! We started organizing for expo and WOW, I seriously could not go to sleep last night, after touching & feeling all of those wonderful papers, flowers, edges, paints, glitter paper, die cut paper, embossed paper, shabby chic paper, graphic paper, and on and one AND serious problem, WHERE ARE WE GOING TO PUT OVER 300 NEW PAPERS??????????????? So we won't be able to share them until we can find them a home (looking for paper racks). Ha ha, we've added so many new papers in the fall that we've used all of the racks we usually save to debut CHA papers. But we're trying to be creative.

Seriously, there are sooooo many of these that you will WANT/NEED/HAVE TO HAVE and ABSOLUTELY CANNOT LIVE WITHOUT!!!! COME CHECK US OUT AT EXPO & check the new wall frequently for the newest papers that FIND A HOME. Actually though, look everywhere because some things are going directly to sections as a result of NO ROOM ON THE NEW WALL!!

EXPO is going to be SOO EXCITING, please join us!!! We don't want you to miss a thing-don't forget about the big drawing-you are a representative must be present at 1 pm for drawing.

4 more days til MEMORY MANIA EXPO

WOW, Have you ever attended one of Memory Mania's CHA EXPOs? They are great fun and I think WILD is an appropriate word. I can remember back 10 years ago when we were located at Tanger Mall and the ITEM OF EXPO DAY was a little swivel blade, template & sponge mat-----Coluzzle -WOW-we were wild for it of course, but we never know if YOU will be WILD for the same things we are WILD for so we ordered some not an enormous supply of them and when i tell you they were FIGHTING for the coluzzles, I'm not exageratng, seriously, customers were stealing them out of the baskets of each other to get to the register first. I think the stealing was in great fun, (i think), but yes, EXPO day is always great fun And can you believe it, Coluzzle is still widely used today !!!

SO what is expo, well we have been putting out some of our new buys from CHA for a couple of weeks so that you won't be too overwhelmed, but we have more stored up surprises and the biggest thing is you get to PLAY with some cool new tools/techniques.

Now, talking about CHA, one of the largest shows of its kind-a scrapbooker's dream come true . . . Its that time of year when the vendors are unveiling their products for 2010!! My head is still spinning . Spinning from all of the awesome things we saw !!!! Chances are I couldn't name 5 of my favorite things - aren't you glad we narrowed the choices down for you. You can ONLY imagine how much money we spent, we went in the hopes of a TIGHT BUDGET, well, put a woman in a room larger than a football field filled with papers & stickers-what do you think happened to the budget, uhhhhh, i really tried. No really, i did-I told Christy the only things we could get were the things we just couldn't LIVE without. Ok, so we were gasping for air alot those 2 days, and we found more than I hoped, I just stretched it out over a few months. We will be getting LOTS in for EXPO day, but we've saved some things to come in May for National Scrapbook Day & then also a little later in June!!!! I think this is a good way for the customers too, afterall, we can only take so much excitement at one time!!!

The great thing is the vendors knew where we were all coming from with trying to save money, scrap more economically. Many vendors designed lines that kept this in mind, making most papers double sided. Therefore, you can save paper & double the use out of them. There were lots of new generic embellishments which we've been desperate for. So try really hard to save that date, its the best day of the year-you get to come & touch & feel & see how things work!!!!! AND lots of really cool things were saved for future Masters Kits!!!!

Stay tuned for more EXPO news as my head slowly stops spinning & I can think clearly (well, not sure if that happens in your lifetime). SAVE THE DATE, EXPO DAY, Saturday, March 13 10am-1pm.
