Nikki Sivils Scrapbooker Day...
We hope you are making plans to join us Saturday, July 9 as we showcase two of the new collections by Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker. We have a full day of activities planned, including lots of yummy mini-cupcakes. (Allison and I are cupcake-crazy right now, and we'll have some new flavors for you to try out!)

I also wanted to let you know that even if you don't participate in the mini-Super-Saver sessions, I hope you stop by to talk to Nikki. She is extremely deserving of some extra thanks right now because of what she has been doing for the scrapbookers of Joplin who lost everything in the recent horrible tornado. Most of you know that Nikki came up with the idea of collecting items to give to the Joplin scrapbookers, and many of you brought donations of new and used items to SG. So many items, in fact, that it took Nikki and her helpers two trips and two loaded-to-the-top trucks to move the things to her home.

In addition to donations from individuals, Nikki contacted other scrapbooking manufacturers, and they were extremely generous. For example, Bazzill sent a huge amount of cardstock, and other companies sent paper trimmers for each of the 50 donation boxes Nikki planned to assemble. The amount of work it took to process the 100 boxes of products sent by these companies, and make everything into organized gifts for the Joplin scrapbookers was huge. I hope you can stop by and let her know in person that you appreciate her idea and her hard work to allow Joplin scrapbookers to enjoy their hobby again.
