Scrapp'n Savvy - more than just a paper craft store!

Finding a home for Scrapp'n Savvy has been on the back of our minds for the past several months. We tried so many rental locations but none of them would lead us to our ultimate goal to have a place where we could host retreats. Well my parents bought a beautiful five acre wooded property with a very ugly house. My parents are known for buying eyesores. They have a gift for making a neighborhood eyesore into a coveted masterpiece. I watched them create these miracles all my life but I also saw the amount of work and sacrifice that went into each project. I was so happy for them when they bought their Houston home. It didn't have any major work requirements to just be able to move in and start living. But out of habit or now I think this is what they do for fun, they still spent the first few months painting, wallpapering, changing flooring and building a beautiful wood shop(hehehehe). I know they are getting older and I thought their major remodeling days were over. Not my mom though, that girl is a fighter! She saw from the very beginning how that ugly shack they called a house could become a beautiful Retreat center for crafters and families.

So the work has begun. We broke it up into three phases. Phase one would get a crop room, bathroom, small store, and kitchen. Phase two will give us a bigger crop room, better kitchen, and a dorm that will house 14 overnight guest with a nice large bathroom, a laundry room, and office. In phase three we will add the full size store and change the current store into a private room for special quests.

The house smelt like mold from day one and we found the source. It seems there was a broken pipe leaking into one of the bathrooms. The moldy walls are down and the pipe is fixed.

22830 Fritz Lane Spring Tx will be our new home. Phase one will be done September 23 just in time for the SCRAPP'N SAMPLER. So sign up to day.

Happy scrapp'n
