Fun News plus a Sale and Giveaway

I haven't posted much this week because I've been busy as a buzzing bee in the background.I have lots to tell you today so I hope you'll hang in there with me and check it all out!
You see, I've been sprucing up over at the store!
 First I want to show off our new banner and co-ordinating badge. 

Then I wanted to let you know we also have a new Store Gallery!  I was never happy with the old gallery as it was cumbersome for me to add to or change things around. 
So I set up a blog called Inspiration Gallery! I will be putting up a badge here on the SCS blog but it will also be a link in the store (hopefully by tomorrow).

There you will find inspirational art and tutorials....printed, video and digital.  It is small now, but just like my store, I have faith it will evolve and grow. 

Plus  I'm happy to announce that Shabby Cottage Studio now has an Artist in Residence! No, not me! Cindy Adkins.  Cindy will be like a design team of one! :-) But since the name team implies more than one I decided to call her Artist in Residence! You will find her badge over on the right hand sidebar, so pop in and visit Cindy whenever you can because creations are always flying out of her studio!  And over at the Inspiration Gallery you will find Cindy has created our first tutorial, Crinkled Seam Binding!  You know we have lots of pretty colors of seam binding in the store, now here is something fun to do with it!

Why all this activity you ask?   Ok, maybe you didn't ask but you know I'm going to tell you. :-)

And my oh my so much has happened in the past three years!!!

 So we wanted to get tidied up and ready for our guests so I could  invite you to our PARTY! 

Yep, we're going to party ALL WEEK LONG!  From Oct 2 thru Oct 8 everything in the store (except for gift certificates and classes) will be 25% OFF!  And it will be easy, no codes, no coupons, just put the items in your shopping cart and all the work will be done when you check out!

And that's not all!
I am putting up a post tomorrow  (Sat. Oct 2) for a GIVEAWAY of my new class
Fabric and Lace Composition Journal.

But you will have to come back tomorrow to get in on it.  I just thought I 'd tease you a bit!

So mark your calenders so you can take advantage of the Party Savings this week and stop by tomorrow to toss you name in the ring if you are interested in a chance to win a free class!

Happy Friday my wonderful Blogging Friends!!!!!!!
