the grand opening!

Opening weekend at Our Paper Place was a major success! It was busy, busy, and more busy… and I’m so grateful to all of the support and encouragement from everyone! People are signing up for classes and crops, and product has been moving left and right. ;) …but for those of you who didn’t get a chance to take a visit into the place, don’t you worry because ordering is already in the works! This week, we have even more boxes to put out on the shelves. Make sure to stop by our place to check out the latest.

As for the latest in my life, all has been good! 🙂 The store keeps my hands full, but that’s a good thing. Oh, and we finally got our Christmas tree up. This year, we decided to do a red/green tree.  It turned out super cute, but it needs just a little umphf! Once we finish, I’ll be sure to take pictures and share. What does your tree look like this year?!

Here are just a few of the fun pictures from this past week:

If you are in town, make sure to drop in and pay us a visit. We love seeing all of you creative artists at our place!
