the last kit of the week

here it is friends, the last kit of the week. yes, you just totally read that right.

green tangerines lost their lease this week. they have to be out of the building by march 1st. it was a shock to each & every one of us. i am pretty sure i am still in denial. i can't imagine my little community without green tangerines. it has been the mecca of scrapbooking supplies for us, the locals. it has been a place where my boys & myself feel at home. kelly, paula, and ken are always so good to my boys. green tangerines has allowed me to do what i love on a very part time basis (mostly from home during the last year)... still allowing me that sahm status. it has been the place where i have met & become very good friends with some of the most amazing & wickedly talented girls. i can't imagine going through a week with out stopping by green tangerines at least 3 times :-) car just seemed to automatically drive there. i can't imagine my month without a scrappy hour with fun friends. green tangerines seriously was my one stop shopping/inspiration when it came time to get my creative juices flowing. the happy visits with staff,who quickly became instant friends just made green tangerines that much more for me. they are friends who are your cheerleaders during the ups & downs of life. they are a group of girls, that i consider myself so lucky to know & call my friends. Okay, i am stopping right here. the tears are freely flowing & i just can't go here today.

on a happy note, green tangerines is having a store wide sale, 25 percent off the entire store (except for bazzill, adhesives, kit of the weeks & a few other things). kelly has even received some of the new lines from cha. the other happy note is that the green tangerines kit club will still be up & running. watch the blog for details to come at a later date.

like i said, this is the last kit of the week. if you want one,you can stop by the store or give them a call at 916.771.8010.

bazzil (white & red)
pattern papers by 3 bugs, heidi swapp, my minds eye, american crafts

I am so sorry Raimi! I know how much GT has become a part of your life. When I see it, I always think of you. So sad. Let me know if you need to mourn with ice cream...

OMG Raimi! That is so shocking! I am really sorry for you and the Mason's. Are they planning to reopen else where or are they going back to CO? Big Hugs to you!
