Mark Your Calendar

Can you believe I'm posting the dates for the Pretty Pieces Café already? For those who know me you realize that this is a BIG step for me. The times are still in negotiation BUT the dates will be at the end of the day on Thursday, October 23rd AND daytime hours on Friday, October 24th.

Here are some photos of people hard at work!! Just so you know, there's a lot of laughing and talking during these al a carte days BUT it's hard to capture. Even if some of these pictures make you think we're all so serious ... don't be fooled!! There are times when I'm laughing so hard I can't catch my breath. During those times I can't take a picture either - LOL!

Jewelry Bar ... everyone who tries it loves it.

Sisters ... when you come to the PPC please bring your friends and family.
I had to step in and stop a off a little sisterly spiff, LOL! JK!

One of my favorite things is when people help each other.
I can't be everywhere at once so it's great to know that someone you're sitting by knows what you need.

Some people never sit down. ;) Actually, that's how I create too.
Sometimes when you're here you might make a mistake.
It's ALL good. That happens when you're a human being.
When all is said and done, everyone leaves with a smile.

I sure hope I see you in October.

Café Dates

Did you see that?? "Dates" ... plural.  You weren't seeing things. This month I will be trying something new to see if we can accommodate the after work crowd and the early birds.

 Mark your calendar and invite a friend. You never know exactly what to expect when you get here. What do you think of this card? I'm thinking of adding it into the mix? Isn't it cheerful?

AND .... drum roll please ... here are the dates and times.
Thursday, September 25th from 3pm until 8pm
Friday, September 26th from 10am until 3pm

September Take Out Kit

Do you ever get take out food to save yourself some time in the kitchen? Take Out Scrapbook Kits are pretty much based on the same idea. It's a way to jump start your way into a Close To My Heart paper pack with two layouts already designed and cut up for you to put together.  All you need is adhesive and scissors.

Pre-ordering for this kit starts NOW and lasts through September 10th. See my contact info below to make sure you get yours. There are two versions ... Appetizer ($20) and Meal ($31).

These two layouts are made with the Chalk It Up Paper Pack and coordinating Complements. When you purchase this kit for $20 you get these two layouts cut up and ready to assemble along with all of the papers left in your paper pack.

I always add a couple of embellishments, which I've recently come to think of as "side dishes". You don't have to add these but they make the whole thing more tasty. For this kit I'm adding the White Enamel Stars and the Small Black Sparkle Flourishes. If you want to finish off your layouts just like mine then you can purchase the upgraded kit for $31. Here's what my pages look like finished.

The pre-order period starts right now and lasts until September 10th. You can contact me by email ( or through Facebook (  I have a special offer this month for those who purchase this kit with embellishments. I can't advertise it here so you'll have to ask me when you place your pre-order. Can't wait to hear from you.
