Week in Review at TPBP

Hello Friends,

It was a wonderful and whirlwind kind of week for me.  We had our grand opening for TPBP store in Fremont, CA and it was an amazing experience.  I'll post pictures and share more details in the coming days, but in the short term I wanted to make sure that you knew about an update to our class schedule.

We had to change the dates of Frank Garcia's classes and they are now scheduled as follows:
  • Sat April 6th (OPEN) 10am - 5pm, Mixed-Media Journal, $55
  • Sun, April 7 (SOLD OUT)
Classes will take place in our store at 37485 Niles Blvd, Fremont, CA.  Call us to sign-up at 408 461-0645.

Thanks for visiting the blog!

Week in Review at TPBP

Hello Dear Friends,

I sure hope you enjoyed this wonderful week.  For me, it was a weel filled with new and fun experiences.

First, TPBP participated in their first blog hop to help launch the spring issue of PaperHaus, an amazing online magazine.  The hop is going on for a week so you have lots of time to visit the many participating blogs and enter to win some pretty cool prizes.  Check our post just below this one.  Another first this week was our first advertisement, which you will find in this spring issue of PaperHaus!

The next new activity was putting the final touches on the store.  We've been sanding and painting furniture, hanging and filling shelves and enjoying every exhausting moment of it all.  I can't wait to open the doors and have you all visit on Friday, March 8, 10am-5pm at 37485 Niles Blvd, Fremont CA.  We are open Wed thru Sunday.  

Here are pictures of the store coming together.  What do you think?
We will have fun surprises through out Grand Opening Day, but want to make sure that you know the time of the make and take: 11am-1pm  and 2pm-4pm. Our make and take supplies will be limited, so first come, first served.

While I was away at the store, my talented Design Team has once again created a selection of projects to inspire our followers.  If you missed the posts on Facebook, you can catch-up here:

In Juliana's trim-filled shadow box you'll find that her shabby chic style meets vintage and they compliment each other beautifully. This piece is a feast for the eyes so you will definitely want to watch Juliana's video for all of the details.

If Miranda book had a title, it might be "Metal Meets Lace in a Very Pretty Place." It would be a pleasure to read and a wonderful place to rest your gaze.

Watch the video to see how that cool embossed look is created. You might be surprised to see what she used.

Time will certainly seem like it's flying when you are enjoying Char's winged dress form that's adorned with a clock and all dressed-up with our elegant trims, laces and candy gems. 

Char shares all the details in her video, you won't want to miss it.
