And the walls came tumbling down...

Today was more eventful than we expected! The walls came down today!! The store is a complete disaster and it's a good thing we are closed now. Thanks to those of you who braved the renovations today to wish us luck. We will now be closed until sometime next week! We are hoping to be ready to re-open by Thursday, or Friday at the latest since Lori and I will be heading to CHA! You see, CHA rolls around and we start knocking out walls to make room for more stuff! haha.

So as you can see... there is a big fat mess, but lots of progress made too! Lori was doing her Happy Dance today because she is so excited. Sorry no pictures of that, I had already put the camera down! I will try to capture the next Happy Dance for you, but you have been warned...

Renovations & More...

So the renovations continue... today we get a break... TODAY WE ARE OPEN!!! We are open today and tomorrow (Sunday, January 27th & Monday, January 28th) and then... CLOSED AGAIN. This time the renovations start on our store! We will be taking lots of pictures to post of the progress, we are hoping it will be done within a week. Let's all cross our fingers! We know it's going to be awesome when it's all done, we are really excited for these changes.

SO... since we have only two days open and I am getting desperate emails from those who need a fix (you know who you are hehe) ... we decided we should have a stocking up special! So today and tomorrow only - Buy 10 Sheets of Patterned Paper at Regular Price and Get 10 Sheets of Cardstock for FREE! We are also accepting that Inque Boutique Coupon posted below today and tomorrow so bring it on in! And last but not least, all of our clearance paper is 25 CENTS! Come in and stock up, and see the "old" store for the last time. When we re-open you won't recognize the place!

Just remember to check in here often and our calendar as we are posting updates there as well. As soon as we get information, you will get it!

Everything Inque Day!

*** UPDATE*** I just found out that the floors in the mill are NOT going to be done today as planned! They will be putting the final coat on tomorrow morning so they cannot re-open the mill tomorrow. We will be closed on Saturday! They said we should be fine for Sunday and Monday so keep watching for updates! We will post any information as soon as we get it! Don't you just LOVE renovations??? We will accept all Inque Day coupons on Sunday, January 27th!! Thank you for your patience and understanding!

So tomorrow (Saturday, January 26th) is Everything Inque Day!

Inque Boutique has some amazing stamps! They are cling rubber, so they mount right on your acrylic blocks. The quality of a rubber stamp with the ease and functionality of acrylic stamps! Excellent. :) So tomorrow at participating stores (including of course yours truly), All Inque Boutique stamps are on sale with this lovely coupon below!

The coupon is only valid tomorrow! So don't wait!

New Venture ...

Well we finally did it, we started a blog! I know we must be insane to take on yet another project but it just seemed to make sense. I kept thinking, if we had a blog we could post *insert witty idea here* and we could also post *insert another witty idea here*. So, I just decided to jump in head first. I hope we can swim!

Basically this will be the place to check in for updates between newsletters, and for those who don't frequent our forum (Turtle Soup). Our intent is to keep you informed on new product arrivals, classes and crops, special events, contests and Design Team Calls, CHA and anything else we feel like talking about! :)

That being said, I barely know what to do with myself with the store being closed for 3 whole days! Something that hasn't happened since we opened! We were in yesterday just to do some administrative work and we were practically in a bubble with everything being tarped off. It is going to be awesome when all the renovations are complete. The building is really going to flow much better. We find out Monday when renovations will officially begin on our store! We will keep you well informed and we will of course be taking pictures to document the process!

Before I go, I just want to say THANK YOU to everyone who came to our Anniversary Auction last Sunday. It was an amazing time and we truly appreciate all of your support! We are still gathering photos, watch for some soon! ;)
