Lovely blog readers, I would like to introduce you to the new online scrapbook store of a fellow CKMB member. Ladies, meet ALL MOMENTS REMEMBERED. AMR, meet the ladies. I’m asking that you please go check out this store, keep an eye on it as it grows, and support it as much as you can. Tell your scrapper friends. Put it in your Favorites. In other words, buy something! She has stinkin’ cute stuff…
Okay, here’s the story. I ‘met’ the owner of AMR on the CK MESSAGE BOARD. She was on the first or second day of opening her online store and was posting messages to get the opinions of the dedicated shoppers…er, I mean…scrappers over there. Her name is Stacey aka ‘Scraphappy1yahoo’ (the link to her BLOG is down there on the bottom right). I could just sense the excitement and enthusiasm from this girl. She was super-receptive to our ideas and thoughts on products. We started ‘talking’ via IM, CKMB posts, and our blogs. I’ve been very impressed with her drive to make her store successful, especially how she has gone from computer newbie to developing her own shopping website in a matter of days or weeks. Like me, she is a stay at home mom who is just trying to cherish the time with her kids…and get a little scrapping in too. Just the other day, her Daddy had a heart attack and she has been very open in sharing her feelings with the message board and her blog readers. Stacey has been flooded with well wishes for her dad, I think because she is so genuine that you can’t help but love her. So my goal here is just to share her online store with you, hoping that you will support this hard-working lady with her store as it grows. She has virtually no advertising budget, so it’s got to be word of mouth. And check out her blog, it’s a good read.
The best part is that Stacey has a SPECIAL OFFER for CKMB’ers. I asked her to write something to introduce herself and explain the special. So, heeeeeerrrrrreeesss Stacey!
I am a sahm and my hubby is a teacher. I have four kids, two teens and two little ones. I live in a very small town with NO LSS and only a dollar store for supplies. I have always loved scrapbooking and love heritage stuff. I have done up our guest room with all antiques and old black and white photos. So, after being tired of not having scrapbook items, I decided to open my own online store. I visited Lasting Memories in WA this summer and saw scrapbook items I only dreamed of. I was in shock how much wonderful stuff is out there. I think everyone, even small-towners, should have wonderful scrapbook products. So here I am…. It is starting out slow. I do not have a large amount of money sitting around waiting to be spent on supplies. So I have had to use little funds to get the store up and going. I do classes and with those and selling product from home I have been able to keep adding lines to my store front. I read the story about Kay from K & Company, how she started in her house and 7 years later is HUGE as we know her now. I want to be there. I want to make sure everyone has a chance to scrapbook with quality, fun supplies. I hope every week I am able to order products from a new line and fill my store up. As for advertising, I rely on friends and family to spread the word. I have been found in the search engines finally too! They told me it could take 6 months to a year before search engines found me and I did it in 3 weeks. Yahoooo. This is all from a girl who has only known how to e-mail on the computer until now. I have spent many late nights building my site all on my own and pulling my hair out figuring it out. I have to say I do feel proud of myself. I have been a full-time MOM for 18 years now and not done things for myself and this is a first. I am very excited about my new adventure.
CKMBers discount………. 35% off entire order…… When you check out, put in the message box CKMB and I will take the 35% off. I appreciate any business and really would appreciate others passing my site name off to others they know.
Scrap Happy :)
