The Grand Haunt

Ooooh how fun! Every year, the city of Escondido hosts an event called the "Grand Haunt." It's an opportunity for parents to bring their little ghosts and goblins downtown for some safe Trick-or-Treating!

Come on down this Saturday, October 28 from noon - 3:00. Other activities include pumpkin decorating, costumed characters, halloween music and more! For more information call the Downtown Business Association at (760) 745-8877.

Yep . . .I'll even give candy to you parents, too! After all, Sprinkle the Cat from The Cat's Pajamas would say, "There's no such thing as too much candy."

And speaking of Sprinkle the Cat . . .

The Big Brown Truck and The Big White Truck have brought goodies from The Cat's Pajamas, Stamper's Anonymous, Inky Antics, and Hero Arts (almost have ALL those Monograms). More Alcohol Inks, Big Scallop Punches, and other fun doo-dads have also arrived!

More stuff is scheduled to arrive over the next few days as well . . .check back soon to see what else appears.

I'm lagging a little bit . . .I guess partly because I wasn't feeling too well earlier this week and have been sluggish from that, and I've had all those other little things crop up here and there . . .

So . . . The October Challenge entries are up and the voting polls are open! Stop by and cast your vote now through October 31.

The November Challenge will be posted tonight.

The latest issue of RubberStamp Madness magazine is here . . .did you love the Rosie's Roadshow sample in the previous post? Then be sure to pick up this issue of RSM! There's a whole lotta eye candy featuring Rosie's stamps in there. Besides that, there is a great article about Linda Berge!

Two new issues of Australian Stamping & PaperCraft Magazines have also arrived!

More Hero Arts Monograms have arrived . . .and yes, I have even more on the way! My goal is to have the whole kit-n-kaboodle in stock.

Speaking of those Monograms . . .I know that it's ever so difficult to pick and choose just a few sets . . .so be sure to watch the Blog for a special offer to make it much easier to have it all!

After all, less in NOT more . . .more is more.

Happy National Card Making Day!

Really . . .it is National Card Making Day. To celebrate, I offered free Make-n-Takes at the store today. Of course, I didn't take a picture of the card, but it did feature stamps from Rosie's Roadshow and Memory Box.

My friend, Lora, was kind enough to man the table (ahem . . . I'm really, really, really grateful that she agreed to help me out . . .especially with only two days notice!). She did a wonderful job (as always) and was so busy she never really got much of a break.

But, I think we all had a good time . . . sooooooo, I think I might start having free make-n-takes about once a month. . .

And Lora . . . if you're reading this . . . I promise I'll ask you at least a week in advance. :D
