Happy Spring....

Spring is here, but not really. The sun here in the Midwest is huge in the mornings... the temps just are not showing us that spring feeling yet. It's like Old Man Winter wants to hold on a little longer...

I have to admit that I have been very lazy in the scrapping and card making area this winter. Now that Spring is trying to come, I have many occasions coming up to make cards for and with the grandchildren should have plenty of photos to scrap.

There are a alot of new items coming into the store and I seem to spend most of my time working on getting things added.

Stop by and check out all the new goodies we have coming in.

Fall Classes

Can you believe that it's September already ? We just came back from a wonderful vacation down South and its time for Fall Classes to start. We will have classes for everyone, whether you are a card maker or a scrapbooker, all levels of experience. Something for everyone. Make sure and check out the events calender on the store website.

The fall and Holiday items are starting to arrive daily, so many new things. Watch for new items to appear on the store.

Want to schedule some private cropping time and use our toys? Just give me a call and we can make that happen. Some of the toys we have include: 70 Cricut Cartridges, tons of Spellbinders, Magnolia stamps galore, plus many more stamps. Everything from stamp pads to chalks to spools of 100 different ribbons. We have so many toys, I can't list them all.

Happy Spring

WOW !!!! It seems like Christmas was just yesterday and yet we really never had any winter... maybe that is why the Holiday season just kind of skimmed on by us this year.

We have been so busy finishing our basement and now have started updating our main floor, the Winter CHA Show even got away from me.
We will be welcoming two new grand babies to our family. One in just a few weeks and the other in 2 months. Super excited to be a Grandma...:)

I'm also pretty excited to say that the new on-line store has taken off well and there are allot of new things coming in daily. We will be featuring some new lines in the next few weeks. 
So check in with us from to time and see what is new at Chasing Memories

New Store

Well we moved and we built a new physical store in our home and now we are building a new on-line store.... all this since June 2011. Needless to say things have been busy at our house...
New product will be available in the new store right after the holidays... so please check with us to see all the goodies we have coming in.
Another addition we are making is weekly classes.... I'm super excited to offer some open crops and some make and take classes. The calender will be on the new store front and signing up will be as easy as a phone call.
I did manage to get one card made so far this Holiday Season...Please check her out... This Magnolia Tilda card was a fun easel card to make and she holds a gift card behind the lower sentiment.
I was also very busy making treat bags that I had orders for ... here are a few of them.

Post Holidays

WOW, can you believe that Christmas is here and gone.... I thought that the months leading up to the holidays went fast, but this was a real whiz bang year...:)
 We had so much fun at the oldest daughters on Christmas Eve, playing games, eating and just visiting. The drive home was a little hairy but all in all it was good. We had an easy day Christmas Day, doing nothing. Then Christmas on Sunday with the youngest daughter. However the cat still thinks that its necessary to sleep under the Christmas she is a present or like we can't see her...Not sure which?

After my husband having a 6 hour back surgery on Dec. 8th, things here have been to say the least crazy. I started being a consultant for Scentsy early in December....and love it.

Hopefully things will wind down a little now that the holidays are almost past.
Check out the huge sale we are having in the store. (If you dont want to enlarge the image for the code to get your 50% off everything) The code is "xmas-sale" and its good through January 15th. You can use it as often as you like until that date. Happy Holidays to you all!!

Busy Busy.... The countdown to Christmas is here for sure.

So many things going on right now.... I don't know where to begin.
My husband had all his teeth pulled the day before Thanksgiving and our holiday was very unique.... to say the least. Dinner was Chicken Noodle soup. I could not torture him with turkey and the fixins...needless to say he is healing nicely.
I have been busy making  Tilda Holiday cards and trying my hand at making jewelry. So far, I have made about ten... and have enjoyed some time with my girls that live close making necklaces...:)
The next challenge will be on Wednesday, when my husband Jim under goes double back surgery. This week has started out to be a long one already.... I pray that this surgery goes well and he gets the relief that he is searching for.

The best thing is... I hooked up under my friend Kim to be a Scentsy Consultant.... I love this product and my home smells so good all the time. I have never been a great sales person by any stretch of the word,  but I believe that this product will sell itself...:) check it out

I will have some cards to post int he next few days. Heather S. showed me some great Tim Holtz  techniques this past weekend.... and I have incorporated them with Tilda.... Love that Tilda !!!
Will post some soon...
