Store and Owner updates

Wow, August already! Did anyone else feel like the summer just flew by? I have to admit, though, I love the back-to-school shopping and the start of early fall.

If any of you are interested in apples, Picnic Hill Orchard now has online ordering. Orders can be picked up here, at Picnic Hill Create. Order at Only one variety is ripe right now, the one called "Pristine", but more varieties will be available as the season progresses.

Hope you all are having a great wrap-up to your summer and are looking forward to the coming months!

August project of the month

This month we have a bookmark with succulents on it! We used the Lawn Fawn "Plant-a-Succulent" dies on white cardstock and colored the die cuts with Catherine Pooler inks. We paired this with Catherine Pooler 6 x 6 paper called "Because Flowers". Kits are available for purchase or you may make the project in the workroom as part of the normal workroom fee.

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 what we'll be putting together:

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 Kelli 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. Please register on the website (it's free) or let us know in the store that you'll plan on attending.
