    I am officially having a scrapbook freak out! That store is literally 1/2 mile from my house. I had no clue there was even one going in! I am headed there in just a bit-thanks for the heads up (although I am sure I would have noticed it there eventually!)

    Here is some feedback on some of your products. A lot of people not happy with the poor quality of products and customer service at Advantus…

    I went to this FABULOUS store today for the “soft” openning. Seriously, it’s the cutest, sassiest, girliest scrapbook store ever! I walked in (not knowing that you had blogged about it) and immediately thought…”oh my goodness, this is totally Heidi Swapp inspired”…and then I met Tracy (I think it was her) and she even looks like you! Seriously, you must get that baby out, jump on a Southwest flight, and head down to see this store that is truly Heidi Swapp Land! You can go to my blog to see the darling bag that your goodies come home in…!

    The store IS just as wonderful as it looks!!! I have been helping Tracy putting out the product (drooling the whole time)and she has done a wonderful job at having all the latest and greatest. We have enjoyed designing the layouts that are displayed, I was honored to have mine put in the middle of that gorgeous frame and surrounded by all the beautiful Heidi product! Come see the store it is worth the trip and Tracy DOES look like Heidi!!

    Heidi – I’m stopping in later this afternoon to check it out. It’s just 22 miles from my house and conveniently on the way to my boyfriend’s house! I’ll take photos and share! ~ V

    Heidi,
    I went to that store today and it is absolutely amazing. I never knew you had so many products! Of course, I bought several. Tracy truely outdid herself. Her ideas came to life and it is awesome!
    She asked how I heard about her store and I told her about your blog. She said that she wished you had warned her about it being on your blog and she laughed. She got quite the rush of customers from it. So nice of you to do that. She was really honored and humbled that you took time to do it.
    I have to say that that the store is amazing and seeing it in person is incredible!
    Good luck with the baby!
    Katherine
