WOOHOO!! I am SO EXCITED!! My dream to open a scrapbook store is FINALLY coming TRUE! (THANKS to my VERY AWESOME Hubby!) I have been a scrapper for a little over 13 years, and most of those have been scrapping on a TIGHT budget! So, my TOP PRIORITY with the store will be to have things VERY REASONABLY priced, so that EVERYONE can preserve their memories for future generations!

The last week has been a WHIRLWIND of activity! We decided to do this after a recent trip to Michael's. My Hubby has been wanting to become a businessman and open "Our OWN" something. LOL! We thought about a Dry-Cleaners, and then a Screen printing shop. SO, when he was following me around Michael's while I was DROOLING over all the "pretties", I said "If you want to open a business, it should be a Scrap Store!". So the wheels started turning and here we are busy trying to get the store up and running by October 2nd, which is the HUGE Apple Festival here is Versailles.

We have named our Business "Memories 2 Embellish, LLC", we are located at 117 W. Jasper. The store is just right off the square, 2 doors down from Emme's Attic and across from The Versailles Leader Statesman. We have rented the building and are busy trying to get it ready.

The building was used for a restaurant. Here are some pics of what we have accomplished so far:

This is the main room, which will be the store. The guys opened up the window.

That's my Son-In-Law, Dave.

This is the old kitchen area, which will be the CROP ROOM!

And, I also want to say a HUGE THANKS to Tiffany, (Cinderella) who has been doing LOTS and LOTS of HARD LABOR while I stayed at home with a Sinus Infection!! Love ya', Girlie!! YOU BE THE GRAVY ON THE MASHED TATERS OF LIFE!! LMAO!!
