As we start into August, I realized there is a lot to share with you this month. Grab your favorite beverage and settle in to a cozy spot. Ready? Ok, let's get started.
Your current catalog says it ends July 31st, but it's not. It will still be good through August and end the same time as the Seasonal Expression 2 catalog. Why is this important? Starting in September, we will no longer have an Annual Catalog with additional Seasonal Expression. We will have now have the big catalog that comes out tri-annually! This means 3 times a year you will receive a new big catalog from me.
Our current catalog and Season Expression 2 catalog are while supplies last, so if you want something... don't wait. It might sell out before the month is over and we won't be getting more in.
You can shop the current catalogs on my website at www.LisaFaris.CTMH.com. There a so many great things available, you won't want to miss out.
