Let's Swap! 

TPBP will host an ongoing  Artist Trading Card (ATC) Swap for our in-store shoppers.  ATCs are a fun way to share your art with other artists while also creating a collection of works from other artists.  
Here's how the on-going swap will work:
  1.  When you visit the store, let me know that you'd like to swap ATCs and we will, it's that simple!
  2. We will limit the swap to once a month per person
If you are wondering what the heck an ATC is, follow this link for a definition, instructions and a video.  

Dear Friends,

I'm packing my bags and will be headed to the airport in a matter of days!  It's just a day trip, but what a trip it will be.  I'm going to Las Vegas to attend the bi-annual Create-n-Connect Conference and Trade Show (Previously known as the Craft and Hobby Association Trade Show).

This is where I have an opportunity to look at what's new in the crafting industry and buy new products for TPBP.   Most of the manufacturers post sneak peeks of their new products on their blogs, so take a look and let me know you must haves.  I want to make sure I have your favorite products available for you.

New Crop Date
We have a new crop date on the calendar.  It is Friday, August 16, 10am - 5pm, $5 or 5pm - 12am, $5 or 10am - 12am, $10.  I hope you will join us, we always have the best time at the crop table.  Just call the store to sign-up.
Scrapbook U Creates Crop & Niles Dog Show
I know what you are thinking.  What does a crop have to do with a dog show?  Well, I will tell you.  TPBP is proud to announce that we are sponsoring prizes for each of these events.
I love supporting other small business owners, so when I heard about the upcoming Scrapbook U Creates crop I asked if I could donate a prize.  If you are attending the SummerFest 3-day crop, keep an eye out for the giveaway from TPBP, I think you are going to love it!
I've mentioned how I love my community here in Niles and I really love participating in the events that are going on almost every weekend.  This weekend Niles will play host to a Dog Show for all of us canine lovers.
In honor of the Dog Show, TPBP wil be hosting a Doggy Decor Layout class on August 9 and will be taught by Diane Jamison.  If you participate in the Dog Show raffle, you could win a seat in this class.
Wishing you good luck in both if you participate!
