Happy New Year
Hello and Happy New Year!
We (my husband and I) spent the week between Christmas and New Year's Day doing some renovations at the store. We have added a beverage bar and a small work station.
Cups for a Cause
The beverage bar has been named Cups for a Cause (thanks to some brainstorming by our daughters over the Christmas break). You can stop in at the store and help yourself to a coffee, tea, water, or cold drink. If you're able to share a bit of money with the current charity, you can drop a donation in the bucket. I will change up the charity every three months, and 100% of the donations will be forwarded to the appropriate charity. This year, we will be supporting the Kamloops SPCA, the Kamloops Food Bank, People in Motion, and the Alzheimer's Society of BC.
Try it Before you Buy it Station
We have also added a small workstation where you can try out a different product each month. January will feature Fusion Mineral Paint. Stop in at the store and have a seat at the table. You can choose any of the sample colors at the station and paint a small wooden round (which make great coasters, by the way).
January: Fusion Mineral Paint (round coaster)
February: Iron Orchid Design Transfers (wooden heart)
March: WoodUBend Moldings (drawer pull)
April: Milk Paint by Fusion (shelf sitter)
May: Iron Orchid Design Paint Inlay (bookmark)
June: Tempaper (plant coaster)
July: Iron Orchid Design Stamps (plant pot)
August: WoodUBend Stencils and Posh Chalk Metallic Paste (bookmark)
September: Iron Orchid Design Molds (fridge magnet)
October: A Maker's Studio Stencils (shelf sitter)
November: Fusion Mineral Paint Decoupage and Transfer Gel (gift tag)
December: WoodUBend Posh Chalk Pigments (ornament)
I hope to see you soon at the store!
