Hey there!!!!  Stashettes here…

I know that this is long over due, and for that we apologize…  Things have been a bit busy around here.

Where do we even begin?  We lost a partner, Laura Walker, she has gone to work at the University now.  But in that transition we also gained a new partner.  Robyn Neilko, has come in as our newest Stashette!  So be sure to give her a warm welcome the next time you are in…

The store has grown to 88 artists, and we are still gaining every week.  Now that this new space is so much bigger, we think we can even accommodate more large pieces of artwork & furniture.  So if that would be you, please contact us & email pictures of your things if they are to big to bring in easily..

We have officially moved to our new location.  So make a note that we are now at 535 Third Avenue, in the lower level.  Just across the street from our old place, look for the yellow sign on the street.  We have a beautiful new space, that is twice the size!  I hope that you can take the time to come by and check things out!  We have so many plans in the works for this new space, I will try to fill you in more below!  October classes are kicking off!  We have a wonderful variety of things to offer, and these will change month to month.

Friday, October 3rd from 5-8 p.m. we would like to invite you to our Re-Grand Opening!  Since it is the first Friday, we will have musicians here playing, goodies to share & lots to share!

Where in the world….

Yes, yes…  Again, I am still around, and am worn out!  I thought it was time to write another post, since so much has happened and things have changed yet again!  Never dull around here you know… 

Last time I wrote (over a month ago) I had the list below of all our comings & goings.  Seems to be the easiest format to dump copious amounts of information so I will edit/update that list and see what happens!

  • Our house is in the process of selling. (Yippee!)
  • Yep it sold and we finally, as of Tuesday, were out of the old house!  Woo Hoo!  Thane stayed until 4 a.m. cleaning carpets, etc.  He’s a good man!
  • We have been searching for a new house to buy. 
  • Still looking!  But we found a duplex about 20 minutes from town with an incredible view of the Alaska Range.  Small, bright & new covers it.
  • I quit my job.  (Sigh of relief!)
  • What!  Yes, then I ended up getting a full-time temporary position at the school Jolie goes to.  Will be working full time through May 23rd.  I LOVE it!  They let me bring Ali everyday & I get to see lot’s of Jolie during the day too.
  • Thane quit his job.  (Sign of panic!)
  • Yes it was true! 
  • Thane started his own business the same day…  (We have definitely gone crazy now!)
  • And now he is busier than a 1 arm paper hanger… 
  • I am amazed at how many bills can STILL be coming in the mail from Ali’s concussion.   
  • No comment!
  • We have about 4-6 weeks to move.  (Yeah!)
  • Never enough time…  My words of wisdom on moving?  Light a match and walk away.
  • The Stash – on a mini-pause until Thane gets off the ground and we move.
  • I have been getting lots of contacts for vendors who want to consign for the summer.  Also I will get in HIGH Overdrive this summer on The Stash!
  • Sewing stuff: I am finishing a baby quilt, wall hanging for fellowship, Round Robin quilt block, and a surprise for Laura…  🙂  Then it is high overdrive to be ready for Farmers Market.
  • Everything went to storage…  There isn’t room at this new place for my sewing stuff.  😦  Don’t know quite how I am going to handle this one.
  • It was 50+ degrees here, and the girls are playing outside with rubber boots!  Spring has sprung… 
  • Scratch that…  Spring didn’t spring, it delayed/paused for a month until this weekend.  Bummer.
  • We had a HUGE garage sale last weekend in the snow & muddy weather.
  • Jolie was a ‘Flaming Ember’ in North Star Ballet’s version of Cinderella last weekend.  It was beautiful!  She was also double cast as a ‘Lantern Child’ too, so she became master of quick change!
  • Yesterday was Jolie’s end of the year Art show at the studio she takes classes from. 
  • Ali is getting zippy on her bike, and loves to ride.
  • Ali’s preschool graduation is this Wednesday.  🙂  She will be graduating on to Kindergarten next year.  Boy is she ready!
  • I took the Usborne Books out and dusted them off for the IDEA curriculm Fair.  It is always a great show & there is so much cool stuff out there for kids.
