The first half of 2013 has been MARVELOUS.  Cat and Morgan redecorated the store windows, and we all LOVE them!
Alan, from Lifestyle Crafts, educated everyone about the products by Lifestyle Crafts and gave lots of prizes away.  Once everyone learned about their fabulous products, they just had to purchase some of them!  These products continue to be very popular.
The NSD Retreat was a HUGE success.  It will be hard to beat, but I have a feeling Cat will think of something that will make the next one just as memorable.
Everyone had a blast at the Build a House crop and was so inspired that we raised enough money to build 5 houses for the ladies in Kenya.
Sandy Trefger has started teaching classes at the store and her first class was such a hit that there will be an encore class.  Way to go Sandy!
And there are lots of things to look forward to in the second half of the year.  Jen Starr is coming to Cat's on September 17th to teach us how to use the new Viva Decor products and give us some lessons in mixed media.
Nanci's monthly tag classes are always fun and everyone enjoys learning the new techniques.  Something fun to look forward to each month.
Kourtneigh Foster is a wonderful teacher and is teaching us how to use our Eclips.  Every other month we have an Eclips class and Kourtneigh shares some of the wonderful things she has learned about this amazing machine.

In addition, Cat has several classes in the planning stages.  You know they are always over the top amazing. We also are having a mini-retreat for the 9th birthday of the store in August.  We are all super-excited about this!  CHA is just around the corner, so fabulous new product will be pouring into the store.  

Stay up to date with all the goings on with Facebook and the blog.  You don't want to miss a thing!

  1. Hoping to come to the crop on the 20th, we will see if my wallet can handle it! Mixed media is my thing, and boy did it drive my art teacher crazy in high school, all my projects somehow turned into mixed media works!
