Great American Scrapbook Convention

You’ve heard the expression, “A day late and a dollar short,” right? Well that just about sums up the situation after spending three days at the Great American Scrapbook Convention in Arlington, Texas last week. The Crafty Neighbors were at GASC all three days (maybe you saw us there in our matching t-shirts?). We passed out lots of free product and met lots of vendors and store owners. We were especially excited to make contact with some potential suppliers of new products and to arrange a retail deal with Susie from Scrappin’ Goodtime in Corsicana. Susie bought out our entire stock of Album Spacers to sell in her store there.

So how are we a day late and a dollar short? Well, basically, we spent all our money on some really good deals (who can resist QuicKutz fonts for $40? or Stickles at buy 4 get 1 free?). And as for being a day late, well, it’s a lot of work putting away all that stuff. I mean, we gotta hide it so our husbands don’t see it, right?

Seriously, though, we learned a lot of techniques and came up with so many ideas for new products that we just can’t wait to show you. Some of our new products will be showing up on the website immediately, and some will come in the following weeks. Needless to say, you should check back often. Some of these items are one-of-a-kind-never-to-be-seen-again, and there’s going to be new stuff added almost daily (or at least we hope!).

We hope you like what you see, and please leave us some feedback. We’d like to know what you like and don’t like about our site, what kinds of products you’d like to see, and just about anything else you’d like to share with us!
