Come to this blog, and there will be a link to check out.
It WILL be via Pay Pal. It is the most common way to pay, and offers us the most options and safety.
If you do not have a Pay Pal account, you might want to set that up before tomorrow.
You can pay via Credit Card or Bank Account via Pay Pal. It is SO easy!


Anyone buying a kit starts a subscription. That is $24.99 plus shipping and handling (USA) a month for the "Main/Core" kit.The total each month will be $32.94. (Local sales can pick up at the store at no S/H costs.) International shipping is not available until AFTER the Grand Opening. This main kit is the only kit we will offer until Grand Opening. You can cancel any month as long as you do it by the 20th of the month prior to the next month's kit. The Sneak Peeks for the coming month will be on the 15th, which then gives you the chance to decide if you want that kit. They are all going to have some new CHA product starting this very next month! YAY!

Why sell kits via the blog? Will there be a website? Yes, there will be a website. Buying our kits for the first few months via this blog gives us a chance to work out the "bugs"! AND to really listen to feedback! So that also gives us a chance to change and to offer what the majority of you want! We are so grateful for the response so far! THANK YOU!

The WINNER of the I-Top for taking the time to fill out the survey and be a part of the beginning of The Story Matters IS:
(Random Number Generated): #2 Colleen Flathers!!

Our commitment to you is: Fabulous affordable kits that COME ON TIME!! We want to start out slow with few distractions. We will launch The Story Matters website in May, during out GRAND Opening. (and don't get all sneaky trying to figure out where it is! :) We are gonna HIDE it!) But we thought we would get the hang of this before dealing with message board issues, galleries giving us grief, etc. There is plenty of time for THAT! :)

You are a part of the start of The Story Matters!
Thank you for your support!

Each month more of our FABULOUS design team will be creating with the kits. All will be designing by the Grand Opening!

Tell your friends, tell your family...

It matters! ;)

See ya tomorrow!!

Just realized as I was reading the blog tonight that I would be out of town and not near the internet tomorrow. so bummed because I probably won't be able to get my greedly little hands on a kit, and then I cheered up when I saw my name as the winner. WooHoo. Have heard so many wonderful things about the I-Top I can't wait to get my hands on it. Congrats to my favorite store for their newest big adventure. You guys rock.
