1. Personal service - how many times have you walked into a big box store & either a.) couldn't find someone to help you, or b.) the sales clerk just walks you to the part of the store where the item is suppose to be & it's not there? Those scenarios just don't happen at RWC! If you want to order on-line & can't figure it out - call me! Looking for something I just don't stock - call me! I want you to be happy with your shopping experience!
2. Unique products - sure, I have tape runners, glue dots and paper trimmers, which are scrapbooking essentials, but my product lines are definitely different than what you see in our small selection of places to shop in Martin County!
3. Fun times - I love hostessing the monthly crops! I think it's fun for all of us to get together & work on projects and I love to teach something new to make your projects more interesting. I also learn from each of you!
That's my top 3 list! Is there anything you want to add? Leave some comments & something special will show up in the mail for you!

Heather, with Parties by Heather & Nancy, owner of Carousel Corner in Palm City, invited us to scrap with them on Tuesday nights. I was able to go this past week & I had great fun with them. First, Nancy's store is fantastic. She has everything from newborns to teenagers clothes, tons of toys, and lots of strollers, car seats, etc. It's a great store for all you Moms!
It was nice for me to sit back and just have some scrapping time. We were able to share ideas, help each other out & get some scrapping time. If you want to join us, we meet on Tues. nights at Carousel Corner, located on Martin Downs Blvd. in Palm City. Hope to see you there!

I snipped, snipped & snipped some more! Gee, those pictures are awfully small! Now what do I do with them? Oh, use this template & mount the photos? Ok, I can do that. Put them on the page? Sure - gee, aren't they exciting on a piece of 8.5 x 11 white cardstock!
If I could go back & do it over again, I would have gone to the library and checked out some books to learn more. I guess that's what fueled my passion for preserving pictures and teaching others to do the same. I don't have time right now to show you the first page I ever did, but I'll do that later! You'll crack up!
What was your biggest mistake when you first started scrapping?

Do you realize we're almost halfway to Christmas??? You know how it goes - school goes back into session, then it's Halloween (and the retailers put Christmas stuff out) and then you are carving a turkey & then you only have 4 weeks to the big day! Why not get a jump start on holiday gift giving by attending a RWC's class? This month we are making a Joy Door Hanger.
H is history in the making - What you scrapbook today will be history tomorrow. Are you preserving worthwhile memories that someone will enjoy looking at and reading about in the future? Do they tell a story? Does every page answer the vital questions: "Who?" "What?" "Why?" "When?" "Where?" and sometimes "How?"

Over the next several days, I will post each article on here instead of a newsletter format. But while you are here, take some time to read some of the old posts and sign up for the RSS feed. If you have My Yahoo or My Google as your home pages, you can add a feeder to my blog & it will notify you every time I add a new article!
July is the month of independence. Let us remember why our country is free & who does that for us. Who in your family served in the military? Maybe this is the time to dig out some of those really old photos and start making a memory album. And for you non-scrappers that are reading this, if you would like to discuss a military memory album, call or e-mail me so I can help you in making one!
Stay safe this 4th of July and when you look up at the fireworks in the sky, think about what they represent - our freedom
