It’s all about the catalog.

It’s Technique Tuesday! I am supposed to be writing about a tip or new way to create today. But I can’t. I just can’t. The new catalog starts today and that’s where my brain is. So instead let’s do this…

Tell me what is your must have, favorite, to die for product and what you like about it or why. Each comment gets 10 reward points.

Hint, hint…this is a month you want more points. You can earn points until the 14th and all must be redeemed by June 30th. There will be an awesome basket to finish the year so don’t wait!

Happy Crafting!

With inky fingers,

Finishing up all the planning.

It’s Management Monday! I have done my share of planning and only have a little bit to go. Thank heavens. So here’s what’s happening this week…

There is an order going in tonight at 7:30 pm! If you would like to order online please use host code K6UY9JT2 to help me boost the rewards basket. If you prefer to order in person please contact me before 7:30 pm.

Just a reminder that my office hours are Monday through Saturday from 9:30 am – 7:30 pm.

Open Time at the Studio happens today.

The BOGO sale starts on the 1st! I figured I should explain. The BOGO (buy one get one) sale starts on May 1 and finishes on June 3.

On May 1 I email out the list of my personal retiring items to my team. On May 3 this list goes out via email to my VIP’s. And on May 5 this list is distributed to everyone. Each set of emails will go out at 6 am of the corresponding day. All items have not been reserved before and all are while supplies last. All are first come first serve.

If you are a visual person and prefer to shop in person you can do this on Monday, May 6 during Open Times.

So let’s say you pick $50 worth of retiring items. You are then committed to purchasing $50 or more from the new catalog. When the new catalog order is shipped and received I will pack your retiring items with the new order at no charge.

You will not receive your retiring items until after the new catalog order is placed on June 4. You will receive all items once the new catalog order ships and is received. If you change your mind please let me know ASAP as someone else may have been waiting for that retiring item. If you do not contact me with your new catalog order by Monday, June 3 at 7:30 pm then your retiring items will go back on the list available for someone else.

I also figured I should reiterate how the rewards program works since it is coming up on the end of the year. The program runs from July 1-June 30.  So the last day to earn rewards for this period is June 14.  The last day to redeem all of them is June 30.  Don’t worry, the basket in May will be bigger and then June’s even bigger.  So you have two more baskets to pick from for this year.

And if that’s not enough…

I will be at Desert Rebel on Friday from 2-5. Make sure to drop by and create for just $5 per crafty project.

Save the date for Card Class on Tuesday the 7th, Thursday the 9th, or Saturday the 11th. Invitations will be emailed shortly.

Happy Crafting!

Resting after working.

It’s Sabbath Sunday! Do you know how rewarding a good rest is after working? How good it feels to stretch after a long run? How good a meal tastes after cooking half the day? Rest is so much sweeter after doing something.

How do you rest or celebrate the finish of a project? (Remember each response earns a reward point.)

Happy Crafting!

What’s going on.

It’s Management Monday and there’s a bunch that I am preparing for this week.  Shall we get started…

I’ve already done inventory for all the craft fair items.  (If you are hoping for something to be created please say so.)  This was in preparation of transferring credit card systems that has a lower fee and an inventory system that is in real-time.

I have added to the rewards basket and have added points for more than just supplies.

I am finishing up Serina’s calligraphy class which will have a birthday bonus.

I am packing for the Career Fair on the base tomorrow.  If you are looking for a job contact me for more details on this fair.

Add Card Class, Christmas classes, swaps for OnStage, and on it goes.  I love that this job of mine is as flexible or involved as I need it to be.  If you’ve been around a while you will know that I’ve done everything from a class per quarter to 20 in a month.  I am so grateful that this is such a malleable passion of mine.

If you would like to order online please use host code MFD9GBXR.  If you prefer to order in person simply contact me or drop in for open times today.

If you would like to order online please use host code Q9YJ79MN to help Sandy out.  Sandy is gracious enough to allow me to teach once a month on her day off at her store.  Not only does she open the store but she also has cookies usually.  So if you are thinking of ordering please order online or contact me using the code before Monday night at 9 pm.

Save the date for Saturday, March 17th from 8-2 at the Community Center on Joe Davis.  I will be vending at the Flea Market across from the carnival and I will have a red crate with stamps, etc. for 50% off the current retired price or reward points.  This is for this day only.  There will be other crafty items available but if you want a deal be looking for the red crate.

Happy Crafting!
