Happy Friday! Lots of stuff going on around the Jillibean Soup office! We've started designing new lines, deciding on new embellishments, Laina is working on digital kits of past products to post in the consumer store, we're figuring out some add-on kits for the Card Kitchen - all things I think you guys are going to LOVE! I DO!
Speaking of the office...yesterday I got a phone call from Caron (lovely lady who processes orders) saying it was a not-so-normal day in the office! There were police with ski masks and several camera crews outside. I said what? Later, we came to find out that there were 2 women arrested from an office space on the floor above our's. They were arrested for prostitution! What? This stuff doesn't happen in Dublin. Believe it or not, our offices are in a fairly reputable place...there's doctors, lawyers, and financial people mixed in. Crazy, crazy. I think I should ask for a reduction in my rent! Poor Caron is probably going to ask for a raise since she's working in such a dangerous place!
I'm excited to share some dates for upcoming make n' takes, classes and events...
October 29th - Make n' Takes using Hearty Barley at Red Letter Journals in Grove City, OH
November 7th - Christmas Card Class at Cord Camera in Clintonville, OH
November 12th - Kimber and I are team teaching at Simply Scrapbooks in Dayton, OH (2 card classes and a gift idea class)
November 18 & 19th - Mini Meet in Toledo, OH (we will have a booth and I will be teaching a card class both days)
December 3rd - Card Class at Legacy Paper Arts in Powell, OH
Hopefully you can come out for a visit! Would love to have you in one of my classes! We will be sharing all of the projects used in the classes in upcoming blog posts.
To our retailers... remember we start shipping Hearty Barley November 1st. If you haven't had time to order this oh-so-cute Valentines line on kraft, please give us a call at 1-888-212-1177.
More soon, Typepad is being a stinker and will not let me load photos today so I'm not able to share a project and Hearty Barley samples.
Have a great weekend everyone!
