I just wanted to take a moment to wish you all a wonderful Holiday filled with the love and joy of family and good friends. And more important...have a very safe holiday.
While all of you are busy with food and festivities...we here in Hawaii will be working overtime to make the most of the hoards of visitors coming to the Islands for some sun & fun. We always work our way thru the Holidays. Tourism has been in such a slump for the past several years that we are anxious to take advantage of the crowds. I just hope they are in a spending mood!
The weather is promising warm and sunny for the duration so they will all be smiling!
Dawn is taking a little break. She has her kiddos eagerly awaiting Santa and they have to get cookies made and the chimney swept. We will be seeing more of her lovely creations after we get back from CHA...
...And speaking of lovely creations...I received the most beautiful mini album from LeQuita. It is so beautiful and stuffed full of pages and pockets and tags and mats. I will be putting up pictures for you all to drool over ...probably tomorrow. So please check back to see her festive creation. I can't even believe she made it for me!!!
We will be around thru out the weekend and Christmas Eve and Day...or at least I will. Carol has lots of family functions to attend. I will be answering emails and your orders will process thru the store but Carol will not be sending shipping invoices until after Christmas Day when normal shipping resumes. She also has extra help to speed thru packing and shipping so we won't get backed up and all the orders that come in over the Holiday weekend will get shipped out in good time. Please remember to leave a note if you have multiple orders to combine for shipping.
New Year's Eve is barreling down upon us. And that means so is Scrap Bash! This year will be a little different that the previous years. This year we are only doing a New Year's Eve show. There will not be a Hangover party on N.Y. Day. Kathryn and Mr.LG have plans for the evening and they will be out pretty late. So we will all just party in the New year with Laura. We will be giving away prizes from Laura , Following the Paper Trail, and from our store Scrapadabadoo...but it will not be as elaborate as last year. We will have some really nice prizes...Laura will be giving away a brand new "eClips" electronic cutter by Sizzix. This is the top of the line e-cutter on the market today and some lucky winner will have this shipped right to their door. Thank you Laura for such and amazing prize donation. We will have several prize bundles both Laura and I will be giving away some of our favorite things...BUT...in order to get in on the action you will need to sign up over on the Bash Blog YOU MUST READ AND FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS EXACTLY OR YOUR ENTRY WILL BE DELETED and you will need to re-enter. PLEASE remember to enter your COUNTRY of residence or your entry will be deleted. So hop on over and sign up. There are already over 500 entries.
I think we are going to have lots of fun...Plus...You never know who will be dropping in to say "Hi"
So all my lovely scrappy pals...MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL...
....AND TO ALL A GOOD NIGHT!
Luv & Hugs,
Barrie & Carol
