Scrappy Chic Cafe is getting ready to open the doors!!

How exciting and nerve wracking the next 4 to 6 weeks will be. As i prepare the cafe to serve up yummy scrapbooking treats.

So many items and ideas swirling in my head. So many great suggestions from all of my family and friends. This has been a long time coming, several setbacks, but now, its full steam ahead. I have presently secured several tasty manufactures that I am sure will delight our guests. From bling to kits, papers to ribbon. I can't wait until our menu is complete.

Also, we will have a very special section available of pre-made items direct from our own kitchen. Pre-made not on your taste-buds, but like what you see? We will also offer the items, naked, so that you can create in the comfort of your own kitchen.

We also will offer, a one of a kind, scrappy chic cafe EXCLUSIVE. I can't reveal the details, but, i can perk your appetite and let you know, it was inspired by a night out on the town.

As we begin the journey, and get ready to swing open the cafe doors, I invite you to follow my blog. Please provide your name and your e-mail address. The first 50 guests that follow and provide their e-mail, will receive a special one time coupon for 25% off thier first order at our grand opening!
