It's been a while since we've done the newsletter. We've switched over to an on-line system for most, if not all of our communications. If you haven't already, please sign up for our e-mails, check out our blog postings every Monday and Thursday and follow us on Instagram and Facebook! Today I thought I'd go in and 'clean-up' some of the old and dated info here on the website and I'll periodically change this page up and enter new information but for now I'll just let you know what we're doing for the rest of 2018 (at least as much as I know!).
First up, as the holidays approach, is our Basket Raffle, or in this year's case, our Beautiful Vera Bradley Bag Raffle! We will be selling tickets through the middle of December, probably up to a week and a half before Christmas. This gorgeous bag is stuffed with all kinds of stamping, scrapbooking, and crafting goodness. The companies that we carry in the store were very generous this year. We also have to send out a big THANK YOU! to the Vera Bradley store in the Galleria Mall. They donated this large VB tote AND if you look carefully, you'll see there is another smaller Vera Bradley piece inside. Tickets are $5 each or three (3) for $10. We've chosen our family for the holiday and here are a few details. This year's family is smaller than we have usually done. It's a mom and her 17 mo. old daughter. This family recently lost their husband/father very suddenly at the age of 35. The mom in this family is woman we all hope our daughters grow up to be, kind, thoughtful, always thinking AND DOING for others. She is always the first to volunteer her help, step up without being asked and a genuinely thoughtful and kind indivdual. Mom also holds a full time job and recently was named legal guardian for an adult sibling who has disabilities and needs extra assistance. Her loss is so sudden and unexpected that we do not have a list for her and her daughter. Our thoughts are to provide her with gift cards for a variety of stores and services to help ease the financial burden she is going through. This will be a very, very hard holiday for her and her daughter and we are looking to help her as best as we can.
ATC’s for 2019* Did you know that we have an active ATC group here at BSS? Make 6 ATCs featuring that month’s theme. Keep one and bring the rest to the store by the end of the month in a marked plastic sandwich bag. We will divide all the ATC’s received and you can pick up your bag shortly after the first of the next month. The 2018 ATC list is at the end of the Class Description page.
*We will be posting a new list for 2019 shortly after the first of the year.
