Just waiting for Hannah and Bob to pick me up to head to the airport. Sleep was minimal last night and what I did have involved some very weird dreams. Interestingly there were a lot of "Turtles" in those dreams. I hope that lots of you get a chance to check out the new and improved Scrapping Turtle this weekend (and upcoming week). We are anxious for your feedback. Just keep in mind that it is a work in progress with changes still to come when we get back - with lots of new goodies on order I am sure!!

I just wanted to take a moment to send out a huge thank you to everyone who helped make this renovation possible. Everyone was great to chip in and we really appreciate it. Hannah came through with flying colours in the "kept her cool department". Lynn Wolfe, the property manager for the building ROCKED in the "support and do anything to GET R DONE department". We hope to get her out to some turtle events soon. She is definitely an "addict in the making". Don and Joe-the maintenance men - who moved things and helped with floor plans and helped with some educational conversations. Teresa and Bev and our families, thank you for putting up with long, strange hours and increased stress levels. There were many hands involved in this - construction guys, fellow mill occupants who were inconvenienced, displaced etc, Turtles who moved and unpacked and relocated items - you are all the best. THANK YOU.

Thank you to everyone - and thank you to all the Turtles who made the need for this renovation possible!!! Here is looking forward to the next expansion (did I say that outload!!!)

Next expansion? Hmm.. I see a fire pole in the future.. that takes us down to the lower level formerly known as "the store with all the stuff". Hehe..

I want credit for the visionary unconscious when it happens!!

I LOVE the new look of the place!!! It's AWESOME!!! The crop area is huge!! It looks like a completely different place!! And I LOVE the space for a double stroller to get through!! :D And the KIDS AREA is a GREAT idea!!! Now I can just let DS lose there while Mommy lets loose in the rest of the store!!! And the embellishment wall looks great!!!! I could go on and on! The whole place looks amazing! Great job ladies (and any gentlemen that helped!!) xoxo Amanda
