DeborahDebbie is our guardian angel. She lost her battle with cancer in 2017 and her absence has been felt by not only all who worked with her but our customers also. To honor her, we are leaving her notes here as she will always be a part of our family.
Debbie is our Queen of Coloring! She has been stamping, scrapping and card making for over 30 years. Debbie has created many of the colored pencil designs and Copic samples you see in the store, specializing in animals and people images. Recently retired, Debbie is looking forward to designing more classes for the store. The mother of four sons, Debbie is enjoying spending time with her first granddaughter and her grandsons.

DonnaI'm a scrapbooker not a stamper! That's my mantra. (although I have the biggest collection of stamps and dies for a non-stamper you can imagine!)I've been scrapping for over 20 years and started scrapbooking to create a life book for my daughter, my biggest inspiration. I've been married for 40+ years, yikes! and have worked at BSS for about 12 years. I love color and using scrapping to express myself artistically. I love tools and paper and I'm in the running for "Whoever dies with the most paper wins!" I also like to keep everyone updated with the Thursday blog entry for the store.
Favorite Products: Misti and ALL my scrapbook tools!

They enjoy doing ministry together at their church where Justin is a minister. As a family they enjoy anything outdoorsy and doing things together.
