Tonight Aleis, Joseph, Dora & I went to Ben Franklins Door Buster Super Sale Event. While we were there, we met a super nice employee (no I'm not kissing her butt since she already joined our group, she really IS nice & I can tell she has that spunk, she'll fit RIGHT IN! HAHAHAHA)
Ok so back to the story.... Aleis brought up our crafty group... btw.. Way to go Aleis for spreading the word to people & especially to Carrie who's eyes lit up and was very excited to hear about us. HEE HEE!! Carrie just so happens to mention that Ben Franklin has an upstairs room. (YEA! No kidding!!!) I told her back in October when I was calling around I was denied to use space there *snif* and they were my first call!! Oh and that they said they didn't even have rooms. hmm :\
So she shows me the upstairs room (oh and for you huge frame gals or our special ladies w/ disabilities or ppl like me who bring the whole house w/ them... they have a big elevator, even my cart fit in it!... sweet!!!) and I walked in and my mouth about dropped open. Its HUGEEEEEEE. Like twice the size of the library. With a big counter and a sink and everything. I was so excited that I wanted to jump up and down and hug Carrie but I couldn't scare her already right!?!?! *giggles*
She tipped off the managers that we were a group looking for a new spot with more room and that we have people to craft and cash to spend. Muah ha ha ha!!! I talked to the manger and they said we can use the room!! No more practically sitting on each others laps at Michales. Although I think several of you might miss that... Just kidding!!! HA HA HA!!
I told the managers that it wouldn't be until October because my surgery is Sept 1st and I have to heal and bla bla bla. *ugh* So I'll have to wait on jumping ship on Michaels until I get cancer out of the way. Lame. heehee.
OH and BF is even going to put us on their official calendar. HEEEE!!
OHHHHH and you know what else!!!! They let their other groups meet until midnight!!! So no more crying at 8:50 when we have to start leaving Michaels and wandering Everett to find somewhere to eat so we don't have to go home yet... we can stay there late! Isn't that fantastic!!
I assume we all can tell I am a bit overly excited and it might also have to do with the large iced tea I had. Either way... YAY!!!
If you have not been to Ben Franklin you are in for a treat!!! It is in Monroe and literally on Hwy 2 as you drive through Monroe, next to Safeway. Really easy to find and a direct shot from all freeways and cities.
If you have any questions, feel free to email me. Other than that, hope to see you all at the upcoming meetups, I'll be adding another for Aug 14th at Dora's moms church. We'll have the whole place to ourselves w/ unlimited time! YAY! So keep your calendar clear and look for that one soon. Hope you all can make it to Bre's farewell & Valeta's b-day.
See you soon!!!!
