Fargocat Shops - Goes Live on Sunday Morning!

I promised Saturday, but I am only off by one day! My eagle-eyed Designer friend Yvonne gave the new site a once-over for me and spotted some less than ideal images. And, the shopping cart information might be a little confusing so we decided to wait a day and get everything in perfect shape before we open for business.

But, please drop by on Sunday and visit our blogs and you can win some great prizes! Stamps, ribbon holder, stamppad holder, t-shirts and carry bags from CHA. Just read the information on our blogs and learn how you can earn extra ballots towards the prizes.

If you are out and about in Pictou County on Sunday, May 2 and would like to drop by to see what I am up to, I will be home from 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. Even though I am not set up as a shop at home, you can browse what I have and hopefully give me some great feedback on what you would like me to carry. Just give me a call if you need directions (all my info will be on the Fargocat Shops site) My grand opening is planned for Mothers Day when I hope to have some card class and scrapbooking classes in the works.

Until Sunday............... The excitement builds.........

And, even next shipment is due to arrive on Monday with the rest of my Copic markers, more House Mouse, More embellishments, cardstock, ribbon holders, stamppad holders and new scrapbook supplies. Oh, and I forgot...Smooch!!

Only Three More Days!!

You can always count on a catastrophe at the last moment. Right now I am typing on my brand new computer courtesy of a power surge last Friday night in Eureka that killed my 7 year old Dell. I took a picture of my House Mouse and Tim Holtz display last night only to realize tonight I can't post it as I don't have my email set up yet. Picture in your mind all the new Tim Holtz Distress Inkpad colours on the top level of my cabinet. These will be selling for $5.50 each. All taxes included in the pricing on all my products.

Underneath I have the newest House Mouse stamps, the large ones are going to be $12.50 and the smaller ones under $10.00. All my Copic markers will be $3.75 and I have cases on the way that hold 36 markers. My next shipment is on it's way and will contain the remainder of my markers, some complete Copic sets and some other exciting products.

I can't wait for May 1st, let's hope nothing else out of the ordinary pops up! Yvonne has designed a gorgeous new House Mouse card for me using some of fabulous cardstock I received and the new Bazzill Half The Edge Decorative Strips. This will be my first sample for May. Any purchase will give you a free sample of this product. I love being my own boss! Can't you tell!

First Shipment For My New Endeavour!!

The long wait is over...........Anticipation has been building since I announced my Stampin' Up! resignation. I loved being a demonstrator, but now I call the shots, set the prices, order in and sell what I want. All those little things that I had no control over, well now I do! In the next week or two, my online shopping website will be up and running.

And........I even have my own DESIGNER for my Shop! My dream for this blog is to show you products you may just skip over at your local store that in reality could save you time and make papercrafting that touch bit more enjoyable. Between Yvonne and myself, we will be posting projects that showcase the items for sale. Copic markers, stamps, embelllishments, etc.

What is even dearer to my heart is that I get to announce pre-sales (Yeah) and I get to keep costs low due by keeping an eye on the fluctuating American dollar. When the dollar goes down and my prices will have to increase, I will let you know so you can purchase at lower prices while stock lasts.
