Get Ready for Christmas at our "VERRY MERRY Holiday Craft Day!

Hello, Memory Bound friends! 
I've been waiting since August for mid-October to get here, and now it has finally arrived! In just a couple of weeks, we'll be off to visit our daughter at college. Since August, I've been accumulating a growing pile of things to take to her, including boxes of Christmas decorations. While it may seem early to think about ornaments and twinkling lights, she plans to do her holiday decorating as soon as she has a spare minute. She knows from experience that if she waits until the snow flies, she'll run out of time!

Preparing EARLY is good advice for all of us! So many extra events occur during the holiday season that it really pays to start sooner than later. Bake cookies and freeze them now. Take one of our Christmas card classes (click here for info!) and finish your cards in November. And make your gifts NOW while you have the time! When the holidays come around, you can relax and enjoy the season -- AND pat yourself on the back for being so organized!

With that in mind, we'd like to invite you to our "VERRY MERRY" Holiday Craft Day, coming up this Saturday, October 20, 9am-5pm. This is a new kind of holiday event where you'll make four great projects at your own pace in our workroom. Drop in at your convenience during those hours -- plan on 3-3.5 hours to finish them. We'll have staff available to assist you if needed as you enjoy holiday music, cookies, and our crafts! You'll leave with a count-down calendar, notepad portfolio, mini-book, and a recipe folder. That's FOUR gifts you can cross off your list RIGHT NOW!

See details below, then call your friends and make plans to join us Saturday. Give us a call at (515) 965-1102 to register! 
Hope to see you then!
