August Craft Night:
Our next Craft Night will be held on Friday, August 6th from 5:00pm-6:30pm. Since its still summer, we thought you could use a bookmark to help with your summer reading. Our make ‘n take will be a corner bookmark- which is also a great back to school goodie for all those kids who need to start reading again.
We will again host a one card drawing. Participation is again optional, but the more participants we have the more fun it will be. To make it more challenging, please bring in a card with a “Summer” theme. Can’t wait to see what everyone comes up with.
Admissions Day Sale:
Admissions Day is on Friday, August 20th. To celebrate, we will be having some in-store specials that day. Please check the blog for sale updates later this month.

Christmas Card Club
This month we will be making Christmas themed gift card holders. If you missed out on Jenny’s first Gift Card Holder class that was taught late last year, this will be a repeat of the pop up gift card holder and accordion gift card holder, only in Christmas themes. Once you make these easy peasy holders, you’ll want to make all of them in advance so you can have a stress free gift giving season.
