New house, New designer

I am very happy to say that my friend Kathy in Michigan who owns The Scrapbook Store dot net found a new house. After 14 years of living with flooding that would last for days into weeks sometimes, she says “her husband” bought her a new house. I get a kick out of that. But I am happy for her. Plus she will carry more crafting goodies now that she will have a dedicated area.

I am also happy to announce we have a new designer at Digitals. Her name is Kjerstin and has already begun uploading to her store. So if you have a minute, stop by and check out her designs. Here is the link for Digitals.

I completed more challenges than ever at Digitals this month. There was one I had signed up for that I did not complete but I wasn’t too excited about it anyway. Don’t forget to check out the new posts on my Crafts page.

I need sometime to make some smashing layouts for my newest designer Nicecrane. If you click on his name you will get to his blog. He has freebies available once a week I believe. His creations are out of the ordinary, but then who wants to be ordinary? Not me.

Ok, time for Jay or David.


Volunteer? Is it all it can be?

Well, I kept my commitment. Despite the obnoxious lady who runs the place. See, I go into this local resale store that supports an animal shelter. They have a lot of craft junk. Last week when I was in there, I told one of the volunteers the craft stuff had grown so much you could hardly tell what is there anymore. So next thing I know I’m coming in the next Wednesday to start the project. For about 2 hours. With a chair. Well, the chair was a metal folding STOOL, not even a folding chair! And it was such a mess, so much stuff that didn’t belong in that department, and I just couldn’t stop. (I’m a Libra) Next thing I know the store is open and customers are stepping over me and on my work to get that one thing they think they want but then put back. So I cleaned up the area and went home. 3 hours. I was so sore I couldn’t do anything for the next day. So I have learned several things. a) People aka customers in general do not care about employees, paid or not. b) Don’t believe it when people tell you that you will get a discount. c) Stick to the time limit you set originally. d) Bring cash, they don’t accept checks. For now, goodnight.
