Going Once Going Twice....

Well our first two auctions will be ending this Saturday.

Here is a closer look at some of the Mini Book pages.

This first one is the 'XOXO' Mini Book donated by Michelle Will. This book features We R Memory Keepers and is just adorable!
The I Heart You Mini Book was donated by Michelle Nees. It features a variety of Valentine collections and is an absolutely lovely book.
The bidding for these books ends at Noon on Saturday, so you won't want to miss out. You can give us a call to bid if you want.

We have also added two layouts. These baby layouts were donated by Michelle Will and feature Baby Safari from Little Yellow Bicycle. There is both a boy and girl layout which makes these layouts two separate auctions. The bidding for these layouts will end Monday, March 1st at 5 PM.
All the money that we earn will be going to Childhood Leukemia Research in honor of a sweet little girl that was just recently diagnosed.

Coming Soon: More auction Items, new raffles, the Be Mine Raffle winners, and of course NEW STUFF!!

What's Here, What's Coming!

First off:

New Stuff

All of the new Valentine's collections are out. Come in and see what we have from Making Memories, Basic Grey, Reminisce and more.

We have gotten tons of new clear stamps. Inkadinkado, American Crafts, and Kaiser Kraft, just to name a few. Oh and we put the clear stamps back up by company to make them easier to find.

Our Quickutz wall has gotten a major update. We now have the paper doll and road trip stuff out. Plus tons of new embossing folders.

Along with the D-ring albums that we got from American Crafts, we now have the ring albums from Making Memories back in stock.

Also from Basic Grey is the Origins collection (A class for this collection will be coming up in March)

And from American Crafts we have their Zing! embossing powder. This stuff is absolutely great. And we also got some of the Martha Stewart glitters as well.

Kennady is a sweet little 5 year-old girl. She is a loved one of our family and just recently she was diagnosed with leukemia. Thankfully the doctors believe that they caught it early. Unfortunately no matter how early they caught it we can't take away this horrible disease. That is why we have decided to start raising money. In June the Rock 'n Roll San Diego Marathon to benefit Leukemia and Lymphoma is happening. The original plan was for her dad to run in her honor. Unfortunately due to his own fight with brain cancer he will not be able to run. But we are still going to raise the money so a family friend of his can run in her honor. We will raise the money for the entry fee and any additional money that can be raised as well. In these past couple of weeks we have been praying and hoping that the tests for Kennady's twin sister come back negative. It is one of the most heart breaking things knowing children are affected by these horrible diseases, but when it happens to a child close to you it can be one of the most crushing experiences in your life. We will be raising money in Kennady's honor (hopefully not her sister's as well) over the next few months.

We have started with our Be Mine Kits from Reminisce. These kits are worth over $60 and we will raffle 3 for this week and 3 for next week. Each ticket is $1 or get 6 tickets for $5.

Also starting this Friday we will begin our silent auctions. We have two Valentine Mini Books. The bidding on them will start at $10 and the minimum increment will be $2. Bidding will end Saturday, February 13th at Noon. Both books will be available so come in and take a look at them. Unfortunately due to the volume of bids that could be incoming we will not be able to accept any electronic bids. Please come in or call.

Also as I had announced before we would again like to ask for any and all donations for the upcoming auctions. If you want to make something to be auctioned get in touch with us. We will be having a special drawing for all those who donate something. If you are unsure of what to make feel free to give us a call and ask. We appreciate any and all help.
