Most of the content we will be posting here comes from our regular newsletter, Nook News. If you would like to submit to either a paper or email copy feel free to email me at brian@framingnook.com and we will be happy to add you to our mailing list! Otherwise, we hope to keep you entertained, informed, and educated!

We’ve had the busiest fall season in years – including the busiest November ever, thanks to you all! It’s a good thing that we have added to our staff prior to the rush. My daughter, Maria Makkinga, has been assisting in most areas, but especially with the books, marketing, and design. We’ve also been well served by newcomer, Kyle Moisan, in the frame-making department. Glad to have both aboard!

Joanne has been working hard as our main designer and framer (as usual), and it’s been a busy season for my wife, Janice, as well. She does all of our community work and charity involvement and also updates the cool, new outdoor wagon display.

The feedback we are getting from you all is that the Christmas Framing Gifts were all on time and well received! We are so glad to help. Since our inventory counts all have to be done prior to the calendar year-end, we have been busy this holiday season even while the store was closed between Christmas and New Years. I surely hope your holidays were precious, and wish you the very best in 2013!
