Closing Our Doors . . .

After 14 months of Ownership and 2 previous years of Design Team involvement, I have decided to close the doors of More Than A Memory. It has been an amazing experience with challenges and growth. This decision has taken much time, thought, prayer, tears and resignation. When I bought More Than A Memory I vowed to myself that I would not stop scrapping. It's the heart and soul of my desire to be involved in the scrapbooking community. While I have remained involved in the designing, creating and teaching processes, I've also been absolutely consumed with all the other responsibilities associated with owning the store. It has taken a lot from not only my own life, but also that of my family. I'm not happy doing just enough. I feel I have to give 100% to everything I do, and in trying to do it all, I'm overwhelmed, if not completely insane. While I absolutely love being at the center of Anchorage's scrapping community, I know in my heart that I am not giving what I should or want to my family. I have never understood the meaning of "Balance." So with a heavy, although peaceful heart, we will begin the path to shutting the doors by the end of February.

Beginning Thursday, January 14 - you will automatically receive 15% off your entire purchase!

Our cropping schedule will wrap up with the following dates:

Moonlighter Friday, January 22 (5pm - 11pm) $15.00
Daylighter Saturday, January 23 (10am - 6pm) $15.00
Moonlighter Friday, February 12 (5pm - 11pm) $15.00
Supercrop Saturday, February 13 (10am - 10pm) $30.00

Well - as I've said, I made a vow to continue designing and creating. And you'll notice I said we're "Closing our doors" not "Going out of business." So the bright side of it all is that More Than A Memory will evolve - and we will have the time and ability to design and create with more flexibility and focus.

Creative Corner Kits and Classes have been one of the main forces behind More Than A Memory this past year and for those who regularly await new releases - don't worry, you won't be disappointed!!!

After the adjustment period of closing down the retail store and building the online store - we will be offering beautiful, unique and irresistable Creative Corner Kits like you've grown accustomed to - as well as regular Layout Takeouts, Class Kits and even completed projects.

I'll keep you updated through the MTAM Newsletter and when I launch the online store - you won't want to miss it!

I want to thank you all for the support and friendships I've been blessed with. I couldn't have asked for a better staff to work with or more wonderful customers who have become more than just fellow scrapping addicts! From the laughter and excitement of crops to watching someone's eyes light up when introduced to a new product or technique - it has been a fabulous ride! A huge THANK YOU to all who have passed through!!!
