Magenta Class Debriefing and an Announcement

So last Thursday was THE coolest day ever!  As you know, Nathalie of Magenta was here to teach two SOLD OUT classes!  It was truly a dream to have her here.  Such a wonderfully charming woman.  When she left, she gave me a hug and said "I miss you already."  Ahhhh.....I told her she and her adorable husband, Philippe ("my hero" is how she referred to him throughout the day!)  were welcome back anytime. 

Pictures of the ladies working hard in the class.

You will notice the class was in our "old place".  Looks a little bare but the women filled the store with love and laughter that day!
Nathalie was so organized for each card.  Here is a look at Jolene H. in action on the alcohol ink card!  A beauty.   I know any good artist needs to keep up her strength while crafting so I supplies the sweet treats (Halloween chocolates and Jen's amazing cupcakes!)
Our counter provided the perfect space for the trunk show!  Look at all those stamps!

Here are some of the gorgeous wood mount stamps Nathalie and Philippe brought for the trunk show!
Magenta Order
That reminds me....we have an order being processed by Magenta.  If anyone needs anything, please email me at my NEW EMAIL address thepaperpickle@gmail.com and we will add them on.  Remember I am no longer carrying stamps (although I was tempted on Thursday to bring them back!).  Please email no later than Tuesday at 11pm in order to get in on this rare opportunity!

BIG Announcement
I'm sorry that I have kept you hanging for a couple of days!  It has been just a little busy since the class.  Everything had to be out of the old store Friday.  Then the store was open Saturday, but I have no internet connection for my ancient computer there and today, well....I spent the day outside....er, in my garage trying to convince myself and prove that I am not a hoarder.  So sorry....ok.  On with the show....drum roll.....

I am proud to announce that The Paper Pickle will now be open Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday!  I know many of you were hoping I could be open a couple of week days.  And what do you know?  I listened!  This is what we are going to try for now....and again, I really appreciate your patience with me as I figure out my new schedule!

Wednesday 10am-5pm
Thursday 10am-4pm
Saturday 9am-3pm
*And by appointment for real emergencies and invitation consultations on other days

I hope this will work out a little better for everyone.  Please keep the suggestions coming too.  I appreciate the feedback I am receiving.  It is my goal to provide you with coolest product at the best price while running a store that you are proud to call your local paper craft store.
