Paper Clips

A JOYous friend gave this really cute paper clip project, thought you all might want to make it. Come by today to make one. It's super easy as 1-2-3. If you make a few then you got a really nice gift - for Admin Day next month or even Mother's day.Would think this might be good for those soon to be graduates that will be off to college (for their textbooks.)

R U ready to "hunt" for Eggs?

Can't believe it we're celebrating our 2nd Annual Easter Egg "hunt." No you don't have to hunt for eggs around the store... though that has been a thought. It's easier than that.
1) gather (egg hunting) the items that you'd like to purchase.
2) make your purchase (counting your eggs).
3) pick and egg for your discount for the day. (range is from 5% to 20% off for entire purchase)

Did we say entire purchase...YES! that's correct! Shucks, darn, we won't be giving out stamps though if you are participating in this event, not combinable.

Limited to one egg per person per day, and there is a limited number of  eggs per day. (Don't forget to let us know, do you prefer Egg Salad, Deviled Eggs, or Pickled Eggs before you leave.)

M&M's, who doesn't like 'em?

Maybe those who can't have chocolate, but doesn't mean they don't like 'em.

St. Patty's Day

Are you going to be eating corn beef 'n cabbage today sometime? Of course you are, you're Irish!

Come by and make a green lei to wear to the downtown festivies tonight. If you have time you can always make a beautiful beaded project, using some of the new glass beads that we have.

Kona, so beautiful...

As some of you know, I was on the Big Island last week. It was so beautiful. Got lots of inspiration - went to the Kona Ace Hardware - I was so excited. They have a section that has scrapbooking and crafts - similar to things we carry, more seasonal thing though, and they have a floral section.

Sunsets at the beach, as the saying goes "lucky you live Hawaii."

This picture made me think of a project that I didn't finish (oops...did I say that, but it's always that next project that keeps us, a true lifetime crafter).

Watch for this in the Island Family Magazine.

We got in K& Company too....if you like lime green and purple/lilac...then you might want to come check it out.

Scrapper's Jam & a Tsunami !?!

Hey all, Tsunami warning - did anyone get any cool pictures?

We were at the Scrapper's Jam with all the Tsunami Scrapbookers! We had lots of fun, hearing the updates on from the radio as well as the phone calls from those that didn't make it.

Check out the make 'n takes that we did at the Jam.
Here's Gloria from Ben Franklin-Pearl City and Joy. My picture of Joy's favor didn't come out to clear. So check it out on her blog:

Here's Christy's Easter Bunny Card.

Cute, yeah!

(Some of you might have noticed the cards, thanks for being part of our CitC R&D team in preparation for the Jam.)
