I want to personally thank Ava for stopping in at Art 'n Soul today and helping me reduce the 12x12 paper stock by taking advantage of the 35% discount. There's certainly more paper left and the sale will continue tomorrow (Sunday). Susie will be at the store and I know she'd love to see you and catch up.
