So did everyone have a ghostly Halloween? It was cold here and I only had 7 kids at my door, disappointing because who's going to eat all these leftover goodies?
Our 'fire' sale was an outstanding success last week. It took us almost a week to catch up on all the orders! We had to clear out 10 items. Some we are discontinuing and others like "Keep Calm I'm A Girl Guide" we are going to remake. So we're having a "Rename the Keep Calm Crest" contest. Just email your suggestion to 'email@example.com". We will pick the most requested name and the winner/s will receive 2 free crests of the remake. We'll announce the new crest name and winner/s in the December newsletter. We'll also post the contest on our Facebook page next week and you can enter your suggestion there as well.
Keep an eye on Twitter as we're tweeting some Guiding trivia plus 'name that famous Canadian Girl Guide'. See if you recognize the famouse faces who were once in Girl Guides.
We are also happy to announce that we have created a Pinterest site. Check it out here and Pin us if you like.
We have two new Instant Meeting themes for ages 5 to 17. They are Holiday Crafts and Self Esteem.
