Yay! Paper Party Day!!

We'd like to thank everyone who came out to our Paper Party and Family Fun Day today! From the comments I overheard, many of the people who came to participate in our various make n takes and demos had a great time and are already looking forward to the next one. We had a great crowd for the rocket demo and people who missed it were anxious to hear if another would be done. (I'm sure Bert, our store manager, would have loved to shoot off rockets all day, but unfortunately he had to get back to work. ^.^) The card make n takes, ice shave, and cupcake and cake pop make n takes went really well!

However, there was one little, itty bitty incident...
Lexine, one of our associates, ran into some trouble with food dye while making GAK. Oops. Lesson learned, gloves are definitely needed next time.

While the make n takes and demos were going on, we also had a table set up for the Cards of Aloha make n give. Armed with paper, stamps, ink pads, and markers, participants created some beautiful cards. If you didn't get a chance to stop by and make a card to be included with others when two representatives from our company head to Japan next month, you have another chance next weekend or, if you'd like, you can drop off cards at Ben Franklin stores. It's a wonderful way to show the people of Japan our love and support.

Hope you're having a wonderful weekend! Come stop by and see what new stuff we've gotten in!
