Store and Owner updates
Wow, June was a whirlwind for me! I hope that your summer is humming along nicely with lots of fun activites sprinkled in. :) As I was drafting this newsletter, I realized we are not slowing down one bit for the summer and into the fall. There is so much to tell you about with special programs, classes, and events. I'm so grateful to all of you and I hope you're as excited as I am to see what this season holds.
A quick note about July: the store will be closed on July 4 and July 11 (both are Tuesdays)
July project of the month
Um, oops! We don't have a project for you this month. If you would like to share something you made at Picnic Hill Create on our social media pages, though, we'd totally love it. @Picnic Hill Create

And, a very special volunteer opportunity...
We've been talking that we want to do something special for Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October. We finally have some details to share with you. We'll be getting together three times in September (14, 16, and 22) to put together journal notebooks, cards, and other goodies in a care package. These care packages will be given to newly-diagnosed breast cancer patients at Bryan Health in October. Here's a peek at the journal we'll be making:
We want to send encouragement and love to these patients and we hope you'll bring a friend and make this happen. A special thanks to customer Kelly H. for the Bryan Health connection. There are some more details on the Picnic Hill Create website on the dates/times of these drop-in activities. We'll be updating as we have more information.
Card Bases, Chipboard Elements, high quality premium vinyl, and so much more from a new supplier, check out our new displays in the store.
New Mintay products are being released this weekend. Here are just a few images, let me know if you'd like me to order something in.
