It's hard to say goodbye...

Seven years ago I had a dream to open my own papercrafting store,
I wanted to share my passion with everyone.

Six years ago I had the opportunity and the courage to do so. Over the years I
have put my heart, countless hours, effort and time away from my family to make
paperMuse what everybody has come to love.

So it is with a heavy heart that I now have to tell you that I have to close the store.

For the hundreds of you who have supported me through the years with your hard earned money I want to express my sincere gratitude.  Thank you. Thank you for patronage, support, kind words, and friendship.
I have met so many wonderful people, and made some really great friends.

I have no regrets, nothing I would do different.

Given the financial opportunity and a stable economy I would do it again.

This was of course a very difficult decision one that I had been contemplatingfor months, but was due to the failing economy, many people no longer having the disposable income to fund their passion,
and the inability to fund the store with our personal money anymore.

I always had hope that things would turn around. But sadly time, money, and hope ran out.
So here is how this will work......starting the the week of the 11th all items will be 25% off, the next week will be 35%, the next 45%....and if there is still some stuff left 50% off the next week.

All of my fixtures are for sale and will not be included in the % off sales.All sales of course will be final. No returns, exchanges or refunds will be given.

    If you have purchased a gift certificate for someone please remind them to get in and use it, if you are holding one please come in and use it!

Gift certificates as always are not redeemable for cash.

I will have an Etsy store with some of my most treasured supply items, I will send out an email and post on my blog/facebook when it is up and running.

I just want to give my thanks again for your support, I will miss you all.

I hope to see you if not for anything else but just to

say thank you and good bye in person.

I hope you will be open tomorrow...I have 6 out of town guest that come yearly to scrapbook. You were on our list to visit tomorrow, after a lunch at Windmill Garden.

I'm so sad to hear you are closing. I've always found your stuff so much fun, and best variety. Look forward to seeing you, before you say goodbye.

Barb Lunday, with friends Pat, Rosie, Debbie, Betty, Karen and Lorna.
