Happy Birthday America!
We will be closed on Saturday, July 3rd and Monday, July 5th to celebrate the 4th (and clean up at home)
We have had a very interesting and very busy last 2 weeks on June 17th about 6:40PM we had a tornado blew through our acreage. In just a few moments 3 out buildings were gone. 4 cars were destroyed most of the trees in our 100 plus years old grove, and 9 windows, siding, shingles etc. were all damaged on our home. Inside 6 of us survived unharmed. God is a great protector.
Wonderful people came and helped pick up our yard of broken buildings, fallen trees, tin from the neighbors and other debris. The Salvation Army was there to help with anything we needed from water, food, snacks, generators if needed. They were great.
Life is slowly getting back to normal, soon the house will have new windows, the siding will be on, the roof re shingled and other repairs done as needed. We are very thankful to everyone who came and helped us in any way, you helped make our burden bearable.
At the Store, when I came to work last Monday after the storms of the weekend, there were two ceiling tiles ready to fall - full of water, I moved the school papers out of harms way. I hope to get them back in place in the next week when the ceiling tiles dry up, we are sorry for any inconvenience it may cause you.
While I have been out of the store we have gotten alot of new merchandise in, I am in the process of getting it in the computer and hope to get it out on the shelves next week. The new Justrite stamps and acrylic blocks are here. New paper lines from Moxxie and BoBunny, stamps and stickers from Stampedeous. We are now carrying the Big Shot by Sizzix, embossing folders and die-cuts, we have the tea-cup, flip-flop and cake 12in die-cuts. 2 different Tim Holtz embossing folders and some other products from them.
Our next crop night is Friday, July 9th. We will donate all of the crop fees $10 a person to the Salvation Army. We will also have other specials with proceeds going to the Salvation Army. They have been a great help to those who were affected by the storms of the last few weeks and we would like to help them out. The evening runs from 5PM to 10PM. We will also accept donations for the Salvation Army Disaster Relief fund.
Have a Happy and Safe 4th of July Weekend
