Christmas Party

I have finally finished the projects for the Christmas Party, I love this day at the store. It really gets me in the holiday spirit and everyone as a great time creating and socializing. Here is a picture of the projects we will be doing at the Christmas Party. As in years past the registration is on the house and you just pay for the supplies. We will be having refreshments, don't forget the Chocolate Fountain that I mentioned a couple of posts before. Also Paulette's husband will be running with the Olympic Torch on Dec 5th and she will be bringing it on the 12th for use to see and maybe get a few pictures with. If you are interested in joining in the fun just go to the website under mini workshops and you can register either for the morning or the afternoon. Don''t forget it is a Cookie Exchange so you will have to bring a minimum of two dozen cookies or squares and the recipe so I can copy and share with everyone.

I have also added another ornament workshop on Dec 4th 6-10, the bonus here is that I am going to do the prep work for you. Go to the website under mini workshops if you would like to register.

I hope everyone has a great weekend and I look forward to seeing you in the next couple of weeks.

This morning my trust in people is being tested. It was brought to my attention this morning that last night someone tried to steal something from the store while taking a workshop. The product didn't make it into the persons bag but was on its way there when she was asked whether she wanted to purchase it. Of course she had a lame excuse.

I have had my suspicions about this person before but have never caught her with something in her bag. So what do I do? Do I go to the expense of installing camera's? Do I confront her? and then be accused of slander. Perhaps she has a problem and can't help herself if so get help. I am a small business owner who has enough paying the day to day bills I don't have a cushion for theft. Plus I don't want to have this distrust, I enjoy my store and my customers.

So if you are reading this and you know who you are then be aware that I and all my teachers are aware and will be watching.

Busy, Busy, Busy

I can't believe that the last time I blogged it was Halloween, where is the time going? So as you can see by the following pictures I am busy getting the projects ready for the Annual Christmas Party here at the store. This year I decided it would be fun to have a Cookie Exchange as well. So you will have to bring some cookies or squares. The date is Saturday December 12th 9:30-12:30 or 1:30-4:30. One of the projects will be a decorated box to hold the cookies and then there will be two other projects. The cost will be between around $17 depending on what I decide for the other two projects. I keep changing my mind about the other two. As in previous years there will be munchies and this year Paulette has kindly offered the use of her Chocolate Fountain. So if you would like to join us for a fun time crafting please email or call 613-836-1361 to sign up.
