Goodie Time!

It's time for our 1st Blog Give-Away!

But first I'd like to share a couple pictures from Friday's Cupcake Crop!

We had some of the most yummy-licious things ever!

Just imagine . . . . more than 130 cupcakes for us to nibble on all night long!

Next up is our "Sundae on Friday Crop" . . . got any guesses what that might involve?
More yummyness!

OK . . . . So on to our Give-Away.

The Shoppe's blog has been up & running now for 6 months.
As of this posting, we've had almost 7200 visitors!

We've spent alot of time trying to show you all some cute ideas, give you some tips, and maybe bring some oldie but goodie ones back to life again.

We've had alot of positive feedback from customers who've been in.

And knowing that we're helping you with your scrappin' and gift-giving projects, keeps us pushing on . . . wanting to bring you more!

So to say "Thanks for Reading our Ramblings!" we've got some scrappin' goodies to give away to 1 lucky reader!

Just leave a comment on this post . . . Let us know how we're doing, what you like, what you don't . . . . maybe sign up to follow us! & we'll draw a winner on Friday .
Good Luck Everyone!

Thanks so much for the blog. I am one of your local shoppers and love this blog!! I even started my own after visiting this one several times. I would like it if the sketch challenges were posted here too so we can go back and refernece them at later dates.

I have only recently found your store and your blog!! I must confess, I spend time at work daily reading your blog instead of working! I have found so many terrific ideas such as the note-taking station made from a double-sided acrylic frame. You ladies have the most impressive ideas and I'm so glad I found you!

I shop & scrap at The Shoppe all the time, but this is my first trip to the Blog. I really enjoyed seeing all the different things on there. Love the tips about "older stuff" that some of us have collected over the years!!

I check it several times a day hoping for an update. I can't get into the store for the crops so I look forward to all the page ideas and other neat ideas you post. Infact, I have lifted several ideas and made various gifts to give and they were loved!!!
Keep up the good work!!!!

I'm posting mainly for the feedback because as cute as your prize is, goodness knows I do NOT need any more scrapbook supplies. :o)

I think one of the things I love most about the store's blog is the fresh new ideas...even if it's using some of the supplies we've had for years. I love hearing fresh new ways of utilizing what I already have in my stash.

Another idea that I thought was fantastic (and that I hope you continue to feature on the blog...maybe with some of the other design team's participation) is what you can create with just three pieces of paper. What's fun is we can use these same "sketches" over and over again using different patterned paper.

What would I love to see? Maybe some pictures of new products as they arrive at the store? I don't care if it's a pen, if it's new, I wanna know about it! LOL And visuals are always nice if I can't make it in to the store quick enough.

This blog is a fantastic resource and I always look foward to getting emails saying there's something new that's been posted. So thank you for that. Although I may teach at the Shoppe, I find I'm learning alot from the tips found here.
