National Scrapbook Day

National Scrapbook Day is fast approaching? Are you busy? How about celebrating with us on April 29th & April 30th to celebrate? We're hosting our two day crop and would love to have you join us. We're providing a free gift, and we'll be sitting down together and making a two page layout. This layout will be designed to include Creek Bank Creations new photo fold out! (can I hear a big yipeeeee??) It promises to be a fun weekend where you will complete lots of pages or projects. Sign up the event and purchase food here! Don't forget this weekend we will be in Terre Haute at Crop For The Cure. It's not too late to call and register...but please do call her and let her know you want to attend the event. This is a big crop, several vendors and LOTS of fun! Get the information here! Now for some rather big news. This is something I've been wrestling with for months. You know I'll just say this...CHANGE IS HARD. I've known since last year change was coming to my life. ARGGGHHH the dreaded change. So I will have to say this news is very, very hard for me to announce. The girls working for us know I've been all over the place on this issue.....and for that I'm sorry. (to the girls) So the big news is this...our April 29 & 30 event will be the last time the retail store front is open, and I really do not think I will be hosting any crops in the future. This will limit our sales to online sales, and retail shows. I know this disappoints many of our local customers....whom I really do care about. I have just come to the place where I am absolutely exhausted from all the hours I work, and something has to go! I'm hoping that by cutting back I can more clearly focus on what Creek Bank Creations does This means April 29 & April 30 will be the last two days we are open to the public in Muncie. (we are also open April 22 & 23 10am-5pm). If you need things please let us know we'll get them in for you for that weekend. This also means I am cancelling the garage sale scheduled for this Summer, and refunding anyone who has paid/or registered for that event. (you just will never know how hard this is to do!). I will hold the monies paid on the garage sale until after the crop, then if you have not spent the credit I will gladly refund the garage sale fee. I hope you know I'm following my heart here and trying to do the right thing for myself and my family. Hope to see you SOON! Julie Creek Creek Bank Creations, Inc.

I met you and your family at the Terre Haute Crop for a Cure. You all were so pleasant and helpful. I was absolutely thrilled to be able to purchase items that I haven't been able to get anywhere else. Thank you for bringing your shop to our crop. I'll be shopping online with you in the future. Best of luck to you during this time of change.
TTFN - LL & P,

I understand completely. I owned and operated a Scrapbook store and realize the time it takes to keep the store going. I too had to close the store. I was worn out and had no weekends with my grandchildren. It was hard to not see our customers regularly, but the new friends I made was worth it.
