New Year Means...

Time to get all those creative juices flowing! Sarah (our BLOG nut) has created a schedule, so watch out - these girls have a TON of stuff coming at you.

Now in my job description from Sarah, I am to keep you up to date with store happenings (she cannot magically do it from Saskatchewan - what is up with that???)

'The Toonie Challenge' is starting up again and I thought I would give you a peak!

For those of you who are new to our little community, here is what 'The Toonie Challenge' is all about. This is an in store challenge, and it costs a toonie (for our international friends that is a $2 coin) to enter. When you enter, you receive 3 elements to do with as you please. Each participant MUST have their project in to the store by end of business, on the 15th of the month. From the 16th until the end of the month, all the projects are displayed in the store, for people to vote on their favorite. The winner , gets to have their project displayed in the store for the following month, and receives a $10 gift card! All proceeds from this little challenge go to our local food bank.

Last year we raised $64 (I am hoping to get there this week if the weather and sick kids will allow!)

Thanks for checking in!
