Hello my friends!
I feel like this blog post is long over due....I have meant to do this awhile back and here we are and it's already September! I'll begin with big news first!!!(and some of yous already know this) :):) This year instead of hosting 100's of shop hoppers we will be anticipating the birth of a new baby boy!!!This was definitely one of the Lord's sweet surprises...not without some bumps in the journey but we are seeing the end and looking forward to my due date!!(mid October) I have also spent more days with my Mother who experienced a miner stroke in June and on top of that my nephew was in a bicycle accident ( 18 yr old and one of our son's best friends) 6 days in Trauma unit with a brain injury but it's been 8 weeks now and he is at home and we believe he will experience complete healing. Truly a miracle!!! And especially faith building for his young teen friends. God has revealed His power through prayer once more!!Needless to say I won't be doing even a small open house this yr...Maybe next yr??
I will let you know when our little guy arrives...and meanwhile enjoy shop hopping and happy fall & wish you all lots of blessings!!
Fondly, Rachel

Happy winter

Happy winter!!
Just saying hi and hope you're doing well, wanted to let you know I miss you all!
Life is different without the shop and there are days I miss it but it's great to have more time for the 
Children. ( and hubby) I'm spending much more time in the kitchen and they all love it! :)
We also have a puppy around here, Rosa's Christmas present and pay for helping in the shop last fall.
He is about 4 months old and keeps us busy! Lots of fun for Micah's golden retriever too!
Here's a photo Micah took on Sat with Nikko and Bella snoozing in the sun! :)
I hope you are all staying cozy as well.

Attention shoppers, due to some changes, the new chips they are putting in the credit and debit cards, my credit card machine has become useless. I will not be buying a new machine as the shop will be closing soon. I hope this isn't too inconvenient for you all! I will only be taking cash or checks from here on out, thank you for your patience!

Here's a few more things that have come together in the shop, also look for stamp and dies sets that have been reduced, they will be tied together with a ribbon...when you buy both you get 30 PERCENT  off !! :) Lots of new samples, still loving the ELIZABETH CRAFT glitter! Works great over top of a stamped and colored image. Also got new things in from IO and a few other venders.

Last but not least, don't miss the home made cookies and chocolates!!  
See you soon!!!
