Make and Take (or Kits) Ornaments – Start a New Holiday Tradition
For the first time we’ll be holding a ‘Make and Take’ Ornament Station. We’ll have some cute, simple drawings of either a snowman, a reindeer, an owl, or a penguin for you to choose from (Capri is holding the snowman and reindeer). At the station the child will stamp their finger print into the main body portion of the creature. We can add the date and any other personalization you would like to the ornament. It will hang from a canning lid…a perfect decoration for the tree this season and a fun keepsake! If you don’t have your child with you we will also be selling the kits and you can do it with your child/grandchild/etc at your home. (Make N Take – $3, Kits – $2)
Each year we will plan a new Make N Take Station. These ornaments can become a tradition for your family to hang on your tree each year.
Gift Wrapping for Children in Need
We are going to be offering gift wrapping this year. For just a $1 donation we’ll put your purchase in a nice bag with tissue and tag – all ready for gifting! 100% of the proceeds from the gift wrapping will be used to buy gifts for children on the Poynette Bank Giving Tree. I’m really excited about this! Cedi, Capri, Persimoni and I will do the shopping (yes – I love to shop!)
I’m really looking forward to another fabulous holiday sale. Although we’ll be out of apples this year for the sale we will be offering apple cider donuts and caramel apples. If you need to stock up on either of these be sure to let me know ahead of time and we’d be happy to fill your order!
Because the apple store is closing earlier than normal you can expect to see some incredible new items from Diane and I. We’ve been brainstorming and working together on some projects…it’s going to be incredible!
