Really....AGAIN!


Grams is getting snowed on...Again! It was definitely nice for a few days but it's getting old, especially with the prospect of more next week.  The store is open however I will warn you, the roads getting here are not good- very icy. I'll be here most of the day but much to my newly licensed 16 yr olds dismay, I may be closing for awhile this afternoon to pick him up after school.  The ultimate in embarrassment but I don't care.

Looks like the next couple of days might be a good time to stock up on Valentines goodies for rounds 3 and 4 scheduled to hit next week. We still have plenty of amour treats and what would be better than a homemade Valentine. Here are some peeks at the ATC cards, this should get those creative juices flowing-
Brenda received this Valentine from her aunt on her 1st Valentine's Day.
 Brenda soldered the charms herself - man, we have talented teachers and students!  

It was Kay's 1st swap and she did a fabulous job




If you are looking for a Valentine's treat we have the neatest bracelets from Nepal. These are all the rage with the tween to twenty girls but those of us much older- me-also love them. We have a shipment of 300 so come while the selection is still good. These are made to wear in multiples. I like 3; however, I have seen the younger girls do 6-9. We are hoping this will be our cash cow so we can buy a register for the front. The handwritten tickets are getting old- well not exactly this week.

The bracelets are $10.00 for one or 3 for $27.00. Valentine's is just around the corner; it's the perfect gift! 

If you are feeling brave we would love to see you but please be careful. The roads are slick- Really! Stay warm! C

Thanks for all your sweet comments and encouragement. I think I can do this.

For those of you following from yesterday- 
Prince Charming's comments-
 1. why is he a Prince and not a King- he will be at the coronation
2. he's glad to know I don't have any type of addictive behavior. "How do you know? " I smugly ask. " It's a twelve step program baby not 10! " oops!
