In honor of National Mom and Pop Business Owners Day

...FREE gift with purchase all day today!

When : Always March 29th

National Mom and Pop Business Owners Day celebrates small business owners. These individuals spend countless hours nurturing and growing their young enterprises. The workload demands, and lack of a hired staff, often translates into long and late hours, and many missed family and personal events. But, all in all, they love what they do. After all, they are their own boss.
New businesses have always been a vital, yet not fully appreciated, part of the U.S. economy. On they retail side, they bring different and unique products to the marketplace. They provide stellar and personal service support. When you call, you are more likely to get a real, live person. And unlike big national chains, they know their products. They are outstanding performers in niche markets. In manufacturing, they create many new concepts and ideas, making them creators of new products.

Celebrate National Mom and Pop Business Owners Day by showing your their stores today, and everyday.

Attention all Cricut Owners

I was browsing through the Sunday paper yesterday and noticed a great deal that I just have to share with everyone. If you own a Cricut you need to check out the cartridges they have on sale at Big Lots!!! $30 for cartridges, not sure which one's they have but I think that is a good buy and it might be worth it to go check them out. I also found a great website where you can order them for as low as $25.oo not sure how much they charge for shipping. Check out this link: Oh My Crafts, Inc. Leave a comment and share you good deal finds :-) Have a great day.

International Goof-Off Day...really!

When : Always March 22nd

Now here's a day that just about everybody can relax and enjoy. It's a day to do anything and everything.....except what you're supposed to do today. So SCRAPBOOK :-)

Assuming you won't get in trouble at work or school, go ahead and play some golf, or play video games all day. Spend extra time surfing the net. Go out and spend the day window shopping with your favorite friend. Or, just read sit down and read a book or watch Tv. This day is set aside for you to do anything you enjoy doing.

A few years ago, a survey was performed to identify the most popular activity for goofing off. The top activity was playing video games. Who conducted the survey? surprise. It kinda makes you wonder just who might have had the brainstorm to create this day......hmmmm.

With that said, come on by Scrap -n- Stamp for our Monday FREE make -n- take!

Happy Saint Patricks Day

Green ribbons and shamrocks were worn in celebration of St Patrick's Day as early as the 17th century. He is said to have used the shamrock, a three-leaved plant, to explain the Holy Trinity to the pre-Christian Irish, and the wearing and display of shamrocks and shamrock-inspired designs have become a ubiquitous feature of the day. The phrase "the wearing of the green", meaning to wear a shamrock on one's clothing, derives from the song of the same name.
