Mark your calendars! July 23, 2011 is the Hilo Ben Franklin Paper Party & Family Fun Day! There's something for everyone in the family from paper-related Make n Takes to rocket demos, cupcake & cake pop decorating, to even GAK making! Different activities are scheduled for different times so make sure to stop by the store and pick up a flier. I'll try to post one in my next post. The one I brought home to scan got a little squished in my bag. Oops.
Congratulations Jenny and Denise!!
Next, in our little family-themed blog post, I wanted to let you know about a new line of stamps that have just arrived at our Ben Franklin stores! They're called Sister Stamps and were created by one of our awesome Hilo Ben Franklin customers, Jenny, and her sister Denise. Their first release is of three stamps and they're totally adorable!! I just had to have them when I saw them and now I have them in my own two hands! Swing by the Sister Stamps blog athttp://sisterstamps.blogspot.com/ to see project ideas, say Hi, or just to keep in the loop to see when their next release is going to be!
See the little green plants?!
Finally for today, I wanted to give you an update on my little strawberry Eco Plant Pal. This counts as a family item because my dad is actually helping me take care of the little plant. And yes, it is turning into a plant! As of Saturday morning, I have three little itty bitty baby plants sprouting! So excited!! My dad said that maybe within the next few days a few more will sprout up since we did plant 20 seeds.
Hope you're having a wonderful summer and we'll see you soon at Hilo Ben Franklin!
