Bye Bye Wheelock Place

Some of you might have already heard....Laine's is moving out of Wheelock Place.   I knew that this might happen one day, but where did all the time go?!!! (warning - nostalgia ahead)

Bye bye Wheelock Place:
You saw our beginnings... (sorry Laine and Iver, couldn't find your aprons!)
I will miss the little piece of sky I get to see through the classroom windows
and the sound of the shutters lifting in the mornings.
Most of all, I will miss the special Laine's 'feel' (and smell!)
Bye bye, Wheelock Place...and thanks for the
 

We'll be taking a while to move out so there'll be a moving sale and lots of packing to do over the next few weeks.  And just in case you're wondering, classes will still be on in March but come April, us teachers will be moving too ....to PaperMarket that is :)  Promise you'll come by and visit me in my 'new home' K?

I will miss Laines at Wheelock. I remember your first shop, the little one that took over from the Lingerie shop. I remember the scent of the place. And the table in the middle of the shop where you demonstrated the first die cut machine. And where Sharon showed me how to use a circle cutter. Aahhh... memories. :D

Yes me too! Wheelock is not going to be the same anymore. The scrapbooking smell will be greatly missed. And I love the sky too! But all good things will come to an end in preparation for better things in life! I'm sure the new home will be brilliant with the same if not better smell!

totally know what you meant when you spoke about the sky and the smell. I love PM and all too... but it just isn't the same as Laines. Was just telling Jaz how I love the sunlight coming into the classroom too! :(

Can I come and take photos?!!?
