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,

This last week has been so much fun and I have so much to share, so let's get started...

Niles Dog Show
The Dog Show was a blast!  I saw every breed, size and color imaginable, but one thing was the same with each pooch...  Each one was just as cute as the other.

This one came in for Scrapbook Paper.

Create-n-Connect Conference & Trade Show
My whirlwind trip to Las Vegas for the Create-n-Connect Conference & Trade Show (AKA CHA) was fun and very successful.  I met up with some old friends and met some new ones, which is always a bonus at this event.  And, of course, the reason for this event is to buy new product for the store and we sure did!  I think you will love what we ordered and we can't wait to share the goodies with you.

In the short term, we brought back many, many product catalogs, so come on in to the store, take a look and place your pre-order.

Scrapbook U Creates Crop 
As I mentioned last week, I'm sponsoring a prize giveaway at the Scrapbook U Creates SummerFest 3-day crop,  I understand from Monica Martinek & Veronica Leggett, the dynamic team behind Scrapbook U, that the prize will be given away at 5:30 on Friday.  Good luck to all of the croppers and a big thank you to Monica and Veronica for allowing me to be part of their amazing event.
Gratitude and Exciting Changes on the Horizon
Here I am, four months into this journey of being a store owner and I find myself feeling a great deal of gratitude. An endeavor such as this requires many helpful hands and much support.  So, if I have not said it recently, I want to say thank you to my family, friends, customers, teachers and everyone who contributed toward the success of TPBP.
With success comes growth and change, both of which we will see in the very near future at TPBP.  I'm planning some construction that will allow us to have a bigger crop and classroom space.  And, in addition, I've developed and beautiful friendship and business partnership with someone who will be a great contributor toward TPBP.
Also, would like to take this time to thank everyone for their support.  There will be many changes to our shop in the next few months... bigger workshop space to a beautiful friendship and partnership.  This could only positive and more blessed opportunities all around.  
I'm excited to share these wonderful blessings with you and will keep you updated as our transformation takes flight.

Mini Book in a Tin by Brigitte Yeranossian-Ozanian


We love the creative way Brigitte stored her mini album. It really provides for an interactive viewing experience as well as a beautiful display.  I imagine that each page would be a treasure to view, touch and experience.
