A Season of Thanks

With Thanksgiving just around the corner, I've been thinking about all the things for which I'm grateful. My list could go on for more than a mile in a 6 point font! To highlight, though, I am grateful for my family and friends, my loving husband and kids, my grandbabies, and the opportunity I've had owning my own business.


I have met so many wonderful people who have, in one way or another, had an impact on me. I hope that I've been as inspiring to all of you.


I'm not sure who said, "All great things must come to an end," but I can say I don't know if I agree with it. I prefer to look at things from the perspective of, "HEY! Let's start a NEW journey!"


Which I am about to do.



With that being said, I would like to say thank you once again for this amazing 7 year journey! It has been an honor and privilege providing you with all sorts of crafty goodness! It is time for me to begin a new journey . . .


Now through December 31, 2010, all inventory is 50% off! No coupon code is necessary . . . no minimum purchase required. The discount will automatically be applied during checkout. Click here to go get the goods!

The Importance of Half

Do you remember it? Sure you do! Come on . . .take a walk with me down Memory Lane. . .

Streamers, balloons, all your friends dressed in their finest and donning party hats. Don't forget the birthday cake. Yes, it is your birthday party, with games and goody bags for all.

Flash forward a few months . . . someone asks, "How old are you?"

You stand up straight, square off your shoulders and proudly announce, "I'm six and a HALF!"
Okay, so you're not really six and a half, but in your mind you've been six for a very long time now, so in your mind you are six and a half and will remain six and a half probably until two days before your seventh birthday.

Oh, the simplicity of childhood . . . when half was so important. I've decided to go back to my childhood and celebrate Half. Yes . . . Cat's Craft Cupboard is six and HALF today. . . .celebrate with me and save (yes, you guessed it) 6.5% on your order. Just enter coupon code "HALFBDAY" during checkout.

the fine print: may not be combined with any other offer or special. valid on in-stock, regular priced items only. valid 9/12/10 - 9/16/10.

Thanks for stopping by and celebrating our 1/2 birthday!
