World Card Making Day

Some of the snacks we had. I also had a friend who sells Tastefully Simple make some samples for the ladies. Even though she had broken her foot the week before, she still made us some goodies to try and her daughter was kind enough to bring them by for us. Thanks Sherri and Christi. They were wonderful. I just love Tastefully Simple!

I made 34 of these little baskets and everyone who came got to take on home as a thank you for coming to stamp with us.

These are the 5 projects I had them make. They did make 2 spiders. Some of the ideas are cased from some sidelines of mine and from the SU sight or SCS's. Thanks for stopping by.


Hello, sorry it's taken me so long to post about our event, but I've been pretty busy helping out at a little shop I work at part time and helping the guys farm. The event was a success. My downline (Amanda) and I decided on 4 cards and 1 3-D item for the ladies to make. So they could make a total of 10 things if they wanted. We charged $1.00 for each project. Now some of you may think that's too cheap, but we just wanted to have a good time and maybe get some new customers. We had a total of 30 show up. I made 34 of the little BS baskets! Just enough! We had a basket full of goodies that we raffled off to help pay for the room, a couple more raffles, and 8 door prizes. Everyone had a good time and we even got a few orders.
