Just in Time for Christmas!

WishlistWe've had our awesome cart programmers add a new feature to our shopping cart yesterday!!

They have worked and worked and slaved away for weeks, getting a WISH LIST added to the store!

What a great time to let your dearest know just exactly what you'd like for Christmas this year!!  Plus, if they add a note to the comments section, we'll even gift wrap it for them, before it ships.

So now, when your hubby's eyes glaze over when you tell him you want the Slice Animal Crackers SD card, you can just send him an email with your wishlist in the store, and he can pick and choose what he wants to get for you...how easy is that?  :)

So, here's how it works...you must be a registered customer in the store.  Log in to your account at the store, and click on the goodies you want.  When you are in the product's description page, you'll see the words ADD TO WISHLIST.  Click on that link to have your Wishlist add that product.  Here's what it looks like on the Cricut Expression page.
Wishlistpic Once you have your wishlist complete, click on the link to tell your friends.  Type in their email, and it'll give them a link directly to your wishlist.  You can even RATE your items so they know what you REALLY REALLY want!

You can also move your wishlist items into your cart, so if you get a gift certificate or a gift of money to spend on yourself, you can shop directly from your wishlist.

Hope that helps make ALL your Christmas dreams come true!

Getting in the mood for Christmas!

I've been working on some Christmas projects the last week for classes, etc for our 12 days of Christmas starting on December 1 and have been really getting into the Christmas spirit. I absolutely love Christmas music, and found this group on YouTube today.  Went straight to ITunes and bought thier Christmas album...I LOVE it!!

In my honest opinion, you can't get much better than an acapella guy's choir.  Their voices are just so full and robust, and I just love listening to them.

We're also finishing up on our Open House specials, clearance items, etc that will be in the store over the weekend.  For those online shoppers, we'll upload those new specials and inventory next week the 24th to start our countdown to Cyber Monday!  We'll have some great specials in the store on Monday the 1st to kick off our 12 days of Christmas that you won't want to miss!

Grand Opening!

InfocenterWe've got so much going on here at the store!  So many things to tell you about!!

I'm constantly entering in new products to the system, and once they're in, they need to be uploaded to webstore.  I seem to be having a bit of issues with the database and products showing up in the wrong categories, but I'm working on getting that fixed...so sorry about the inconvenience!

OK...can you see what this picture is???  This is what we call our "Information Center" at the store.  It has our classes listed, our calendar of events, Featured Manufacturer, info about our monthly kits, etc.  Well, on our board, we have some SPECIAL DAYS coming up!!

On Friday, November 21 and Saturday, November 22 we'll be having our Grand Opening/Open House for the new location.  We have so much planned for those two days including Memory Bucks for every $10 spent, make & takes, an exclusive gift with purchase, and LOTS of stuff on sale for as low as 75% off their normal retail prices. 

Then...starting December 1 our online Design Team will be starting the 12 days of Holiday Ideas.  Every day starting on Monday the 1st we'll post a new card idea, holiday decor project, sketch, layout, challenge, etc to make your Holidays more scrappy.  With this tough economic times, we can all use a little handmade love, right?

Watch this blog, the Design Team blog, and the Message Board for more information!
