What’s Going On?

Tara

As we approach the end of August and sadly, the end of summer (wow, it went fast!), we also have things coming to an end.  I am, however, looking forward to a new beginning!  Here’s what’s going on…

Kelly Is Leaving

As of August 31, Kelly will no longer be associated with Treasured Memories Canada Scrapbooking.  Her last day working was Monday, August 24.  I thank her for giving me the kick in the butt I needed to get my business out of my house, and for all her work in the past year.  I anticipate a smooth transition; however, I am closing one business and reopening my old business.  This should be seamless & you won’t notice anything different.  That being said, there are things that need to be done so it’s possible (probable?) there could be some hiccups.  Brad & I will be working furiously this weekend so I can open as normal Tuesday 10:00am.

Changes To Hours

The shop will be closed Monday, August 31.  I am counting inventory, computer programming, and a bunch of paperwork to prepare for the reopening Tuesday.  I will have new hours, hoping to catch those of you who haven’t been able to come in because you work.  I am also entertaining the idea of having later hours once per week.  If you have any input, please let me know!  I don’t want to live at the shop, but I want to be there for you 🙂  It is “Your scrapbook store” after all!  That being said, as always, we also have a website so you can shop any time you wish; then pick up your order at your convenience!

Monthly Contest

I hope to see more monthly submissions for the monthly contest.  Get your card, scrapbook layout, multimedia project, etc (your choice) in by closing (3:00pm) Saturday August 29.  Voting runs September 1 thru September 15.  The winner will receive $20 credit to spend in the store for September!  Be sure to visit & vote for your favourite!  See the website, our Facebook Page Events, or ask me for details.  The theme for August is “Lovin’ The Outdoors” and September is “All In The Family”.

Upcoming Schedule

You can always see what’s happening at TMC with our calendar, accessible from our website.  Here’s what’s currently scheduled:

September 7 – Labour Day (CLOSED)
