Making Halloween Crafts on a Budget

I have a daughter in her early teaching years and I seem to find myself always looking for things she can make with her students on a budget. Here’s my adventure.

My plan this Halloween season was to find different ways to make ghosts. Pinterest is still new and scary for me, but after a little research, there are a few ghosts I think would go over well. They all look so easy when you see the finished project online but I already had my doubts as I began.

When Our RV Clients Hit The Road

This is my first summer with Lacombe storage.  Our storage lot has about 116 spots for the RV’S to park.
The weather hasn’t been the greatest but we all need a holiday.

Our Little Elf on a Shelf

We are thrilled to begin a new adventure this year!  Sue Sage, manager of Lacombe Storage Center, embarked on a journey with her ‘Elf on a Shelf’ last December. Here’s her story:

This past December I wanted to find a way to incorporate a fun aspect of reaching people with Lacombe Storage Center’s Facebook page. I have learned that not all social media posts from a business need to be about business. People enjoy pictures, humorous posts and community updates. in their news feeds too! Elf on the shelf was the idea I kept coming back to. To me, Elf brings to mind, the young hearted side of the holidays. Elf is smiling and always catches my eye.
