Busy Day at the Store

Today was a work day at Heartland Paper. I spent the day putting Halloween paper in the holiday area and moving fall paper to the front of the store. This year not very many companies came out with Thanksgiving type paper. Many people are looking for fall/Thanksgiving paper and there just isn't much out there. I spent the evening making 30 Harvest Blessing Kits for the store. It is a nice way to make a little extra money.

I have cards to make for the store and am very eager to work on Edward cards and my Twilight Christmas cards. They are going to be FUNNY - I'm looking forward to the response I get from the Twilight fans out there.

Someone asked me if I would talk about my scrapbook retreat that my friend Pat and I do. We had our first scrapbook retreat this last September and it was a HUGE hit. We had so much fun with our 30 ladies in attendance that we have decided to do more. I love entertaining and my passion is papercrafting so it was a great combination of fun. We had a couple classes and provided all of our equipment and taught whoever wanted to learn, how to use them. We have a Cricut (with many cartridges), a Silhouette (a digital cutter that cuts from your computer), the Big Shot (my new best friend for embossing and cutting chipboard and felt shapes - love it, love it, love it) and other doodads. We had a Twilight night which was a hoot - we all had pictures with a life size Edward, Twilight snacks, drinks and a free card and page kit to remember the evening by. We had great food - we had our very own cook who did a fabulous job with wonderful desserts every night. Of course, I baked my famous chocolate chip cookies at 3 pm everyday. It was great fun. Oh, how could I forget, we had a masseuse come and those who wanted to take advantage of that service could. We are having another retreat April 22-25, 2010 in Eden, Utah. The accommodations are top notch and the scrapbooking is superb. We are doing a much smaller, more intimate retreat at my house in Bountiful, Feb. 25-27, 2010. I have a beautiful home with a beautiful view and great Jane Austin movies!!!!! If you are interested in knowing anymore about these retreats, email me at thewrightteresa@mac.com and I can send you the information. The two retreats are filling fast so if you like to plan ahead we will be having another big retreat in Eden, September 23-26 which we will start taking reservations for around May 1st. Well, I need to get to my card making - this blogging is pretty distracting, I have to always look for new comments and I'm dying to see new followers. How funny!!!!


  1. Great news for everyone regarding the retreats. Ash is dying to have a Cricut and I'm dying to have a Big Shot (actually, Ash, Janell, and I would love to each have both!). Ahh....someday! It's great to see crafting become popular again. Happy cardmaking! - D.

  2. Sign me up!!! I don't even scrapbook as you know but that sounds like so much fun I'm sure you can find something for me to do!!!
