OK girlfriends – it’s time to get serious about getting those scrapbooks and picture layouts done for graduation parties. This weekend is a perfect time – high school basketball season has come to a close, and it’s still cold and snowy outside. Doesn’t a cozy day inside, looking at those sweet memories of years gone by sound like fun?
Give me a call and reserve your space for Saturday!
Have a creative day!

Something to look forward to each month

Have you met “That Scrappy Girl” yet? Her real name is Mimi Davis, and she’s been holding crops at the Craft Cottage for the last year. In 2010 she’s got crops scheduled for the next three months, and she’s even adding some additional classes.
This gal is so creative and friendly – she’s a gracious hostess to the guests that she invites to the crops, and she not only offers products to purchase for completing your pages, but is generous in offering her wonderful help.
Don’t you deserve to treat yourself to some time to reflect on your blessings? I’ll bet you do. Go ahead and check the Craft Cottage calendar to see if that Scrappy Girl’s schedule works for you, and take some time to record your memories.
Here’s to a creative day and a fresh new year!

Holiday Open House

Posted in Leslie's Blog, Upcoming Events, Author: leslie (November 28, 2009)

I almost put “Why I’m Thankful” as the title, because I am spending the whole day today scrapbooking. I’m also thankful that I’ve got a good start to my holiday shopping. But the reason I chose “Holiday Open House” as the title is because of where I’m going to be next weekend…back here at the Craft Cottage to do just a bit more shopping:
These gals who organized this event truly have some great items that you can use for the holidays, whether your needing gifts, needing supplies for holiday entertaining, or just needing some relaxed shopping time.
Hope to see you there!
