Supporting One Another Through Challenging Times

Hi Scrap-A-Latte Friends,

By now, many of you have been self-isolating for several weeks and, together, we're getting through this unprecedented experience.  Although I had to temporarily close my shop to the public during this quarantine period, I continue to visit the shop several times a week to accept deliveries of new products, to arrange contactless curb-side pickups for customers, to create kits that can help keep your creative juices flowing as you #stayhome, and to prepare orders that I ship out a couple times each week.

I miss spending time with my kids and grandkids, but swing by when I can to say hi through the windows or to drop off treats from Gramma 'Ne.



Though I'm flying solo while doing all of this, I've been keeping in touch with my Scrap-A-Latte friends through frequent Facebook live videos, as well as my Scrap-A-Latte and Scrap-A-Latte Kits Facebook pages. I hope you're finding these updates helpful and even a bit entertaining at times!

Please continue to check in on friends to say hi, as self-isolating can have us feeling lonely at times and longing for normal times. Plug in to watch video demos that are being posted by many of our favorite makers who are so generously sharing their time and talents during this most challenging of times. Please continue to let me know what products you're interested in so that, where possible, I might bring them into the shop.

We'll definitely get through this together, because those who make up the crafty world are the most generous of spirit. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your continued support ... support that is simply priceless to small business owners like me. Stay safe everyone and keep creating!

What the ...

Hi Scrap-A-Latte Friends,

What the heck ... where has the time gone!

I can't believe I've not posted anything to the blog since January, yet it seems like not so long ago I was telling you all about the new goodies I was seeing at Creativation 2020. Since then, lots of the new products have been hitting the shelves at the shop, and I'm so happy you've loved what's come in so far!

So while I was at Creativation this year, I spent a good amount of time in that foreign land called "The Stamping Village" -- and I'm SO glad I did! I hosted my first true stamping and card making class in February and those who joined in provided such positive and supportive feedback.

Next up is stamping and card making tutorial #2 this month with Concord & 9th's fun turnabout stamps and dies. We're going to make three beautiful birthday cards. And who knew I was going to so enjoy card making!

Whether you're a card maker, scrapbooker or paper crafter in general, check out my class calendars and crop schedule and get in on the fun!
