Do you wonder what I’m up to? Petite changes…….
The last 2 years for me have been eventful to say the least.
So what should I do? Simplify and light my load.

First: some products/brands are to be discontinued.
Second: I will *promo price* some products that I overstocked.
My goal now is to focus on my best selling/exciting brands.
My favs that I also love to play with ( a little selfish? Maybe…).
Some rearranging too. Maintain our *petite classroom* as always. (Fab teachers!)
How about a *petite working studio* in the front window?
How about Paper Pastimes as a *working studio* stocked with specialty inventory.
Silly me! I don’t need to dream about this – It’s all here. I just have to make it happen.
My fab hubby says *Don’t you work so hard!* You have nothing to prove. You did it all.
Do your Art - Have your R&D days – Demo to your hearts content
WOW! Lucky me: Brandii will help too.
Life is good……xoxo

Curbside pickup still available.

Brandii is pretty excited to rearrange, clean and restock the shop.
We can’t be in the store at the same time. Our boxes of inventory will not be
unpacked until we get the *health* go ahead. So many of these orders are *new*.
We need to work together to unpack, price and organize.
*Where are we going to put it all?* you ask. Brandii is making plans! Yike….
She hints we should do some sales. Good Idea. Watch Facebook for promos!

I have rearranged the store front to be my *studio*. I have lots of counter space
and I have a nice working table. This is where I pull and package orders.
(I think I’m going to *love my studio*)

Call me in the store and I can bring items to show you in the window.
You can take pictures of samples as well. Bring your camera.
We can have a phone chat. 403-255-8731
