Davis is known for its Vet
and does AMAZING research. What an amazingly kind and surprising gift.
Thanks again Jenny!

Susan who worked for us until her husband was transferred to Japan with

All new items!
Products: It was just a
few boxes, but yesterday I was able to check in:

have to check in, we couldn’t find one of the boxes in this order, but new

Diego, Vacation, Family, and more!
be checking in a bunch of boxes tomorrow!!
have mostly spent this week putting out the product from the DOZENS of
boxes of product that we had checked in. I did get a little more checked in
today – some pens, some ink, a bunch of adhesive, a bunch of Pull-EZ ribbon
holders, all of the Bazzill, some note pads, and a few other items. J
another note: I know
that the news kept saying what a hot day today was going to be and it WAS
really hot in Poway today... (and I’m probably jinxing myself here), but
isn’t it a LOVELY evening? The air just smells SO good and it’s cooled off
quite nicely. (well, where I am, at least). I hope that everyone in east
county has cooled down enough to sleep through the night!!!!
Congratulations! To Matt
& Alexis – they are having a BOY!
– apparently, if you are interested in having a male baby, you should work
at Cool Scrapbook Stuff. We are 3-for-3!!
then there was MORE!
Anna Griffin – her new line of Totes, pen holders,
and more. Plus, new papers and other elements for wedding and baby.
7 Gypsie’s – more
self inking stamps
We are working on
checking in our Bazzill order (finally!).
Regarding Robert... To all who wanted to
know, Robert’s surgery went REALLY well (Robert is one of my cats – he comes to the store to “work”
about once a month or so, along with his “Brother”, Bob. They are not even
2 years old). Robert has a hereditary dental condition that rotted his
teeth away under the gum line. I think the vet said he pulled 18 teeth.
Robert was under for more than 2½ hours, but the doctor said that he did
really well under anesthesia. Today, Robert is up and around and you would
never know that anything happened! He is eating and playing and getting
into trouble, as usual!
New! I only did one
order yesterday, but it was a 22 page invoice! AGH!!!! It was 22 pages of
EK Success products. All of it was reorder – lots of graduation items are
back in stock now. Plus a “billion” Jolee’s! Plus punches and lots more!
I will be working on more
Happy Mother’s Day! My
kitties didn’t get me a gift – oh well! I hope that you all have a
wonderful Mother’s Day!

forget that we are open on Memorial Day, Monday, May 26th, but

moved around the entire left side of the store! WOW! It didn’t actually
take too long, but scrapbooks, 8½x11, invitations, card packs, storage and
more are all moved around! MySpace friends can check out pictures online!
OF COURSE, before we

business!! Here is my update for today…
NEW PRODUCTS! Well, I’m
not sure how many boxes I’ve entered, but we’re doing pretty well! We’re at
least entering more than are arriving, which is the only way to cut down
the number sitting around!!! But don’t worry – it doesn’t mean that we
aren’t getting in more boxes every day! Anyway, here’s what we checked in

that the kids have to do scrapbooks for their grade, so we have ordered
extras of lots of items for you and put them all in one area – for your

update soon – I have to go and open the store now!
CRUISE UPDATE!!!! OK – I
was originally told that we could only fit 24 people in the scrapbook room
on the new cruise line that we are using – so I had said that we were sold

that is not true! SOOOOoooooo… OUR NOVEMBER CRUISE HAS MORE SPACE! Come in to sign up

We checked in a few
more orders today!

MY! Ok – so, we
received our new fixtures on Friday at 8:30am. And the guys were GREAT
about trying to stay out the way while they assembled and installed them…
and we had some glitches as to how they were made (Not up to spec in
several ways so we didn’t get the same “Value” that we should have), but
regardless, we were ALL excited!
And SO ARE THE CUSTOMERS! They
look AWESOME! We have had SOOOOO many great customer comments!!!!
I had EVERY available employee work
every day all weekend – which was: 8 people who worked on Friday and 6 on
Saturday (and both Jackie and I put in over 7 hours each on Sunday), but we
are STILL trying to get all of the items into their new homes… We
appreciate your patience while we continue to work out our adjustments. J
Differences… so far you will
notice --- well, there are a MILILION, but a few of the ‘highlights’ are:
ribbon is in an entirely new area! (and it looks AWESOME!)
have a larger rubber stamp/clear stamp area!
pads are in a new place.
punches have a new home
Making supplies are still working their way to their final destination (But
it looks SO good!)
have their side and eyelets have their side (no fighting allowed!)
– you don’t have to ASK anymore!
Mist – well, WOW! We got in SOOOOOOO much right as we were doing this and
it has SUCH a prominent display! (plus, it is also up front with ‘what’s
new’. But the chipboard and stencils are with it.
bling has its own “home”
is still mostly all together. ATC’s are still in a separate place (but the
Transparencies came back into stock with our reorder last Monday!)
have a new home.
a BUNCH more!!!
• Sale Items! OH! And b/c of all of this moving
around, I pulled over 7 FULL baskets of product and put it ALL AT 40%

totally sold out scrapbook cruise is in a week, so we will be “crazy”
working towards that (well, *I’LL* be crazy! J), but don’t worry – we will STILL have
lots of new product for you! If you want to cruise with us next time, sign
up TODAY and save $25! (if you sign up before 4/1 and pay your $200
deposit, you will receive $25 off of your final cost).
Update: So, we had to
box up a BUNCH of stuff yesterday for our pending fixture arrival this
morning. We tried to keep it down to a minimum, but all of the brads,
eyelets, craft punches, most of the clear stamps and a few other things are
in boxes. The ribbon, 7Gypsie’s, bling, and a few other areas will get
boxed this morning while they first fixtures are being assembled. We also
started to remerchandise the Card Making area… So, it’s a little chaotic
but we hope to have it all put back out by tonight. (Fingers crossed!)
PLUS! We received 16
boxes yesterday! YIKES! I couldn’t spend too much time on it and one of the
staff has been out sick, so I didn’t get a lot checked in but I did finish:
SEI – The entire Chick-a-Dee and Chick-a-Doo lines, plus the
matstacks for Dill Blossom, and a reorder of Jolie Chocolat.
Basic Grey – I started on it but didn’t get far.
I’ll try to get to it today in between “Adventures” today!
Flash! I will be
receiving a CASE OF UN-DU tomorrow! Come and get it while it’s in
stock! I had to jump through some hoops but we’ll have it out on the
shelves again first thing Saturday, 3/22.

SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT NOTE… So,
All of my updates have been about new product (b/c we have just been SOOOO
inundated!), but we have more exciting news! I had some custom fixtures
made for our embellishment area and THEY
ARRIVE FRIDAY! I cannot tell you how excited I am! That
area will be able to hold SOOOOOO much more product with these fixtures! I’m meeting the delivery guys first thing

probably be in disorder for the next few days, by Friday night, we should
be back up and running and EVEN BETTER THAN EVER!!!! YIPPEE!!

companies even has refill pages! They come in a few different sizes, too. I
asked for immediate shipping, so we should be getting them within the next

Story By Making Memories: Well,
I was let down by Making Memories. Although I was one of the first stores
to place my order for the Love Story line, they sold out, have no
intentions of making more, and they never shipped my order. I’m so sorry if
you were one of the customers who I told that we would “definitely” have
it. I have found a few pieces from Distributors, and Making Memories
scrounged up every spare piece that they had and it will be here asap. I’m
so sorry if you get locked out of this line, b/c I personally thought it
was one of the best valentine’s lines I’d seen in a long time.
- This is the third line that Making Memories has run out of prior to
satisfying customer needs. I really hope that they don’t do that to us all
Other items that we HAVE received:
My Mind’s Eye – Their Valentine Line is in and super
Making Memories – we received a reorder of the desktop
EK – we received all of their new Jolee’s

pretty well! Here’s a few of the new items we have put out:

really cool glittered & glazed papers for just $1.00 each! Almost every
