I held my Christmas In July Event last Saturday. It was a lovely morning shared with 24 very special ladies :o)
They all worked hard to complete 3 fabulous Christmas projects. It was a morning full of fun, laughter and lots of festive crafting.
Thank you to everyone who came. Thank you for your orders ..... and thank you for your continued support :o) And a big THANK YOU to my wonderful daughter Lauren who looked after everything in the kitchen and the raffle ... I couldn't run these events without her!
The lady with the gorgeous smile is my dear friend Beryl ..... Another huge 'Thank you' goes to her for making the yummy cakes! xxx
This is what I gave all my ladies for coming :o) Everyone had a gift bag with some choccies in it. I made little mini cracker boxes to hold the charm. They had a personalised water bottle and a Stylish Star stamp (mini catalogue £5.95). They all also received a half pack of Jolly Holiday Designer Series Paper.
The little charms are made from shrink plastic and stamped in Stazon ink so the colours won't run. I used stamps from the Delightful Decorations and Contempo Christmas stamp sets and added a little bell :o) Not my original idea unfortunately. I was given one very similar at our Stampin' Up! convention last November - from Rose. I've been planning to use the idea since then for my Event this month :o)
Do you fancy joining us for my next Event? It will be held on Saturday 5th November - from 9.30am until 1pm at Rode Memorial Hall, Rode, Somerset. Contact me if you are interested :o) It will be a Christmas Stamp-a-Stack. We will be making lots of wonderful Christmas Cards :o)
I'll show you the projects we made in my next post .....
