March 7, 2011

Ta Da!

The day is finally here! Well, almost. (*grin*) You might have heard through the grapevine or read on my blog that I've had a little somethin' somethin' cookin' behind the scenes. Yep, it's true...I will soon open my very own on-line paper crafting supplies store!!!  

The Craft's Meow will open on March 21st!!!

Opening this store is a dream come true for me... I'm following Henry David Thoreau's advice to Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined. I've imagined this for a very long time!

The Craft's Meow will offer a wide array of paper crafting kits with coordinating bits and bobs to make your crafting time easier and more fun! We will also carry some basic supplies that will compliment our kits, and some limited edition grab bags where everything old becomes new again.

I'm also very excited to introduce you to Little Frieda and Friends, a line of stamps that will be carried exclusively by The Craft's Meow. I've named the little girl after my mom, Frieda Clark Allen. I remember when I was pregnant with my first child, Mom asked me what I'd name the baby if it was a girl. I said I thought we'd go with Katelyn. She said, "how about Little Frieda?" Well, I had a boy... and then three more... so the birth of my on-line store seems a good place for Little Frieda to come to life! And yes, that's Little Frieda and her cat Lulu peeking from behind the curtain in my blog banner. (*smile*)

And this is just the beginning... I hope you'll stay with me for more delectable things to come!

I still have lots to do behind the scenes to get ready, but I plan to give you periodic glimpses of what's to come over the next two weeks and there may be a few interesting announcements made here and there. (*wink*) So, to gather up steam and get the word out, I'm offering a blog candy opportunity. The prize will be a Copic Ciao Markers 72-Piece Set B!!!
Yep, that's the reason I had a little survey going on my personal blog... to find out what folks want most in terms of blog candy. Copics won the day!

Here's how you can qualify to win the prize:
  1. Become a follower of this blog and/or
  2. Sign up to receive email updates (the one that says "Sign Up Here to Receive Email Updates" in the right column of this blog)
  3. Add your name to Inlinkz below. You may enter your name once for becoming a blog follower and once for signing up to receive email updates, so if you do both, please enter your name twice!
  4. Spread the word by putting my Blog Candy Badge on your blog sidebar
  5. I'd love it if you'd also add my Store Badge to your blog, but that isn't required to win :)
  6. The blog candy opportunity will end at 11:59 PM on Sunday, March 20, 2011
  7. The winner will be announced right here on Monday, March 21st when the store opens!
Thanks so much for taking this ride with me!




Edited to add: I'm hearing that some of you are having a hard time getting Inlinkz to take two entries. Please just try again...eventually it will work. It's just being glitchy sometimes. :) 

Further tip: try eliminating the URL of your blog in one of your two entries. I've set Inlinkz to make URL optional, so that should help. :)

Frea said...

Hello Lisa, congratulations on your new store. I can imagine your excitement, I would love to have my own store too!! I will become a follower and would enter for the newsletter too, Mr Linky however refuses to take two entries. He keeps telling me the link already exists which is weird because I do see other people that have entered twice. I don't know if you can solve the problem?? Hugs, Frea

Frea said...

Hi Lisa, it did work after all; I just had to go away and come back LOL!! Hugs, Frea

laska said...

I wish you all the very best.

DeeDee said...

now following - can't wait to see what you do with your store!!

Lorraine said...

wow what a fab prize i would so love some copics to try as i only have promarkers thanks so much for the chance and good luck with your new store xx

Debra said...

Lisa, I had to leave my blog url off the "second" entry. It didn't want to take two entries using the same URL. Hope that is ok :)

Grace said...

Congratulations Lisa! You know I'm so excited for you!!! Looking forward to your opening and seeing all the goodies!

As a side note... what I did to get the linky to take a second time was give a specific post as one link rather than just my blog and that seemed to work. It kept saying the link already existed in the collection so others could try that!

May God richly bless your endeavor Lisa!!!

Amy said...
