Deeper discounts at the shop!

By Barbara Bussey | September 22, 2022 |

  Hello again!, It’s a wonderful week!  Not only is the Clearance Sale offering deeper discounts, between 35 and 50%, but we’re in Hawaii, for a family wedding.  Both my kiddos and their true love’s are here with us.  That’s an extra great treat, since they live across country, on the east coast!   This weekend, we’ll be joining 3 of my 4 siblings and their kids for wedding festivities and it should be a really great time! We haven’t been to Maui in forever and it’s delightful! Family time is so special!  If your kids live close to you, so are…

Happy Friday, at the shop!

By Barbara Bussey | September 15, 2022 |

  Hello friend!, As you probably know by now, the shop isn’t going to shrink quite as much as we originally planned.  That means more room for clothes, gifts and good stuff! It also means we’ll have room for larger workshops!  Yes! I’m hoping you’ll see the new space, I’m calling the “East Room”, looking holiday festive and ready for workshops, by the second week of October. We’re planning a big whoop-de-do, on Friday, October 21st, from 4:30-6:30, to celebrate the new space! More on that, later. New discounts… Today and tomorrow, our Clearance discounts are increasing to 35% on…

More discounts and great news!

By Barbara Bussey | September 12, 2022 |

Hello, sunshine! What a delight it was, to go outdoors, without being blind-sided by the heat! Before I get to the really big news, I have some news about upcoming workshops.   First up, there’s still space in our Queen Bee class, but I wanted to let you know that you can customize the words on your framed masterpiece!  If you aren’t the Queen Bee type, maybe you’re more of a Bee Kind or Keep Smiling kind of person.  Don’t like bee’s at all? We’ve got your back!  As long as it fits the project, you’ll have plenty of choices! You can…

Two great workshops, plus new discoveries!

By Barbara Bussey | September 8, 2022 |

Hello, darling! I hope you’re managing with this ridiculous heat wave we’re living through, right now! Thank goodness someone invented A/C, because I could never live without it.  I’m ready to go out in the back yard and run through the sprinklers!  Oh, but then there’s the drought! On to better news… Three days into the “right size the shop” idea, I have decided that was a crazy-stupid decision!  The new plan is to just reduce the shop by closing off the back room.  There’s no reason to be extreme, here! There’s still the huge sale going on, so you…

A trip down Memory Lane!

By Barbara Bussey | September 2, 2022 |

Greetings! This is a long one, friend!  Grab a cup of coffee or a shot of tequila and stay a while!  Enjoy! I have so many wonderful memories of the workshops and events we’ve hosted over the years!  There were scary times too, like hosting the first workshop, shortly after we opened.  We were originally stocking Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint and I was so anxious about teaching my first workshop, that I offered the class for free!  I figured that attendees wouldn’t feel cheated by poor instruction, if they didn’t pay for it!  It relieved some of the stress…

Happenings, as the shop transitions…

By Barbara Bussey | August 30, 2022 |

The one-armed paper hanger… One thing I learned this week, is that I don’t plan to make a career change at this time.  Paper hanging would be the death of me!  Thankfully, the end result made me dance!  John Travolta and I could have a blast, while the disco ball twirled!  Can’t you see it now?!   My shop sisters said they were amazed by all we fit into the smaller footprint.  There’s still more to do, but I’m feeling good about the transition. Hope you love it too!   In the workshop… We added another Pumpkulents workshop, October 22nd.…
