I was reading the morning paper & was totally thrilled to see
that the City of Flagstaff now accepts ALL plastics (#1-#7) for
recycling!  Click here for a printable list of what we can recycle now. 

On to other news....just a few reminders:

Don't forget to submit your entry to the February page contest
One 12x12 Love themed page.  Entries are accepted through February
20th & then voting is through the end of the month.  One
winner will receive a $20 gift certificate to the store & the
winning page will be put into a calendar available in December. 
Very cool!

This month take 25% off all We R Memory Keeper albums & protectors. 
Yesterday a huge shipment arrived.  We're sure you'll be as
delighted as we are at the colors available!  If we don't have the
color you want we're happy to order it for you.  I feel that these
are the best made albums on the market.  They're durable, well made
& great looking to boot!  These are the albums Becky Higgins
uses for her scrapbooks...well, and so do we!  My mom (Andi),
Bridget & I are all using them!  Sherry, well, she's caught
up....she doesnt' have the stacks of boxes (has to be one in every
crowd) like the rest of us.

I need to give credit to my mom for being the first one to try out
the photo sleeves in the 12 x 12 albums.  She's been working with
them for a while & is the one who determined that you have to add
4x6 cardstock to the pockets when your photos are smaller than
4x6.  And she LOVES the 3 ring albums....much easier for her to get
pages in & out of.  As for my own project, I can't tell you
how WONDERFUL it feels to have my photos in albums!  I feel this big gorilla has jumped off my back...sounds silly, but
frankly those stacks & stacks (& stacks) of photo boxes were a
creativity killer...I'm finding it MUCH easier to scrapbook the things I
WANT to now...not the things I feel like I HAVE to.  Because my
photos are in albums I don't feel the need to be a chronological
scrapbooker anymore....and single layouts are just FINE.

You'll have to see the new Making Memories & K & Company
products...and the word albums (in the post below)....We have such fun
stuff to make Valentine's, too!  Need an idea? Well, we have TONS
of those, too!

Added more stuff to the 50% off table...making room
for new arrivals.  There are some great deals to be had!  Oh,
and those Art Blanche letters?  Just $1.50! 

Our plans are to rearrange the store this weekend.  Will keep you posted.

Don't forget to sign up for the Week In My Life Challenge's Tuesday, February 19th at 6 pm.  You're challenge,
should you choose to accept it, is to take pictures of your everyday
life....everyday things....what you eat, where you go, where you shop,
what you buy, hair & makeup products, photos of you (I have a LOVELY
one of me coloring my hair)...make sure you get some pictures of
YOU.  Then we'll meet for the class & create a couple of
layouts.  Personally, I'm super excited!  I know, the sample
pages aren't done yet....I have to get some photos printed that I took
over the last few days (even at the chriopractor and of my huge
shoveling job)  The project will be posted soon!  Oh, I even
took pictures of the snow boots that I've had since my husband & I
started dating....oh, some 18 years ago.  The more pictures you
take, the better.  We can always narrow them down but lets start
with a bunch!

I could talk all day today but I have to get ready to go do my
taxes.  Have a great day!  Stop on by the store to check out
the great deals that abound!
