Only 262 Days Until Christmas!


Can you believe that the Hallmark Christmas catalogs have come in, and we have to have orders ready by April 24? As you can see, the ornament, boxed cards, gift ware,and wrapping paper catalogs are on the counter, and we have already started calculating what we need to make the season bright.
Ornaments will be a little streamlined this year. This is the final year for some very special series such as the Candlelight Church, Lighthouse Greetings, and Cool Decade series. When old series conclude, new ones begin. We look forward to seeing A Visit From Santa and Festive Santa series. Back this year by popular demand are single miniature ornaments. An assortment of nine glass ornaments showcase exquisite craftsmanship. New faith ornaments that illustrate the story of Jesus' birth are included in this year's presentation. There are nine new ones to choose.
Beginning April 17, Dreambooks will be mailed out to KOC members and devoted Keepsake Crown Rewards members. Ornament Debut is July 11-12. Make plans to attend.
