Yes, I’m about to enable some shoppers out there…that is, scrapbooking shoppers.
Ever since my local scrabooking store shut it doors (temporarily…see the end of the post for more information) I haven’t really bought any new stuff. That makes my hubby happy.
I’m the type of scrapper that wants to see the colors in real life…to touch the papers…to hold the papers next to each other to see how they coordinate. Online shopping for scrap supplies just doesn’t do it for me.
I’ve been happy to still be designing for their kit club because that gives me new stuff to work with (and it’s all coordinated so no guess work there).
So what did I like about ordering through Sarah that was different than online?
For one, she’s local and delivers it to my door. :) (but if you aren’t local, she’ll ship it right to you)
Second reason…I like supporting her and her family.
Third reason…Memory Works carries just a few lines at a time. It’s not a super store. But the smaller focus allowed me to reasonably flip through it all and make a decision instead of being overwhelmed by Two Peas in a Bucket or another online store.
(For the record, I’ve ordered from Two Peas before and I was very happy with it. They carry a TON of stuff and I know I’ll order from there in the future.)
And the best reason? Sarah was having a drawing for orders on National Scrapbook Day and I won!
So in addition to my order above, she delivered these goodies: the Lemon Grass line by Crate Paper! I’ve already played with these a bit and I’ll share what I did tomorrow.
p.s. Local friends…would you be interested in going to a home party where you could order from Sarah? She’d bring samples and stuff and we could hang out and chat scraps…let me know and I’ll put one together.
