CP2 Reopens!

Woo Hoo! China Pheonix is opening this Saturday with a Fire Sale, be sure to stop down for the sale! The classroom is also ready, so this Tuesday February 21 we will resume our class at 10:30. Sue Rosenberg will be teaching since I will be away with my hubby. I will see you all on the 28th! A great big thanks to Elizabeth at Scraps Galore for letting us use her workroom. She is getting all kinds of great stuff from CHA, so stop by check it out and say thanks for being the wonderful person she is!

Make sure you stop by China Pheonix and help Nancy clear out the old so she can bring in the new ... I know she has some great stuff ordered, so let's make some room on those shelves!

Here is Nancy's email ...
 The contractors are almost finished at China Phoenix 2! This Saturday, Feb. 18, will be the start of the fire sale. All merchandise that was in the store in November will be on sale for 50% of the original sale price.
In most cases the products are fine; the packaging was smoked or soaked. This is the time to stock up.
On Saturday, we'll have a free make & take and just maybe a cookie or two!
  The hours Saturday will be 10am until 4pm. Beginning next week, China Phoenix 2 will be open Tuesday thru Saturday from 10am until 4pm. The store will be closed Sundays and Mondays.
  The Grand Re-Opening of CP2 will be Saturday, March 3. I'll be sending you more info as the day gets closer.
  The Rubber Stamp Convention tickets are here and will be available starting Saturday. The tickets cost $5.00 and allow entry both days. The tickets are NOT included in the sale. New special orders-- Hero Arts, Impression Obsession, and Earth Arts are NOT included in the sale------ but that leaves a store-full that is on sale.
  Come one, come all. Binx is doing wonderfully and thinks he'll wait until next week to make an appearance.
Binx and I want to express our gratitude to all of you who have called, come by, and helped during this very difficult time. It has made all the difference and given me a very real appreciation for the goodness to be found in humanity.
Love you, Nancy and Binx

Blue Star Mothers, card donation deadline

The Blue Star Mothers will be packing boxes for our deployed troops on March 10, along with everyday things, they will be including items for Passover & Easter. All cards need to be to me no later than Friday March 2, so that I can package them and make arrangements for them to be picked up the following week. Cards can be left for me at Scraps Galore and China Phoenix (I'm being optimistic here) clearly marked with my name and donation for Blue Star Mothers.
Thank you for your donations they are greatly appreciated.

2/15/2012 class CP2 @ SG

Let me start off by telling those of you that were not at class on Wednesday, that on Tuesday I was at China Phoenix! It looks fabulous! All the peg board is up and the free standing displays are in there, but everyone was frantically looking for the shelving ... so hopefully by now they have found it and the store is on it's way to being reassembled! We need an update!
If you have not signed up for Nancy's newsletter, do it now if you want to stay informed!
You can also check the blog for any updated information!

Now on to Wednesdays class, I have switched the projects, this week we will be doing this cascading card, really quite easy and so many possibilities!

2/8/2012 class CP2 @ SG

I am so ready for spring with all of these beautiful days we are having ... so today we are working with vellum and twinkling H2O's for this butterfly's wing, and a bit of stickles! 
The scanner doesn't show the shimmer but its there ...

Today you will need your standard class kit, I did use Zig glue to attach the butterfly.

Blue Star Mothers

As promised here is the schedule for the year when the Blue Star Mothers will be packing for the deployed troops. I do need your donations approximately a week before the packing date to ensure they are picked up and delivered in time to the packing site.
We accept any cards handmade or not and must have an envelope included. Hand made cards do not have to be original creations, simply use all those cards you have received over the years and can't bear the thought of throwing away. Just cut the card front off, place on a new card back and include an envelope ... someone will love using these re purposed cards!
Here are the dates and any holiday they may be including ...
March 10 / Easter or Passover
June 2/ patriotic or 4th of July
September 29/ Halloween & Thanksgiving
November 17 Christmas and Hanukkah
Thank you to everyone who has supported this project over the years
 and to those who continue to support this worthy cause.
