Hi Everyone! Sorry I’ve been missing in action the last few days – I’ve been so busy preparing for my upcoming Hostess Appreciation Dinner and I’ve also been working hard towards my goal of earning Stampin’ Up!’s incentive trip to Disney World! I should know within the next day or two whether or not I achieved it – but it’s looking good! Either way though, I know I did my best and that’s what counts! If I don’t earn the trip then I plan on drowning my sorrows in Dazzling Diamonds and Sangria. If I DO earn the trip then I’ll be rolling in the Dazzling Diamonds and toasting with my Sangria! LOL I’ll be make the announcement on Wednesday, at my Hostess Appreciation Dinner, to let everyone know if I earned the trip to Disney World or not – and then I’ll post on Thursday to let all of you know too. I’ll also be posting photos from my Dinner. I am soooo looking forward to this special event. Each year I hold an exclusive (by invitation only) Hostess Appreciation Dinner – this is my 9th year! I’ve got 25 ladies coming who either hosted a workshop with me or have been a club member during the past year. This is my way of THANKING them for their patronage, because without these ladies, I’d have no business. Workshops are vital to my business and helps me grow my business by meeting new people so I really APPRECIATE those wonderful ladies who welcome me into their homes to share my love of Stampin’ Up! with their friends and family. For our dinner I’ve planned some awesome make and takes, games, door prizes, decorations, displays and samples with NEW SNEAK PEAK PRODUCT and the unveiling of the 2011-2012 Idea Book and Catalogue! This catalogue won’t be available to the public until July 1st so all of these ladies get to see it before everyone else does! FUN! I’ve got a few more things to do before the big day, including some more cooking and baking, so I’d best get back at it. Here’s a copy of the menu I made using MY DIGITAL STUDIO and the NEW Cheerful Treat Digital Download.
I’ve also been making decorations for our party and here’s one of the banners I made for the food table – it’s made with all new product!!!
PS – DON’T FORGET! Only FOUR more days to order from the Last Chance list!!!! Get your favorite stamp sets and accessories before they’re GONE FOREVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
PPS – Almost ALL of the Decor Elements are being retired too! So get your favorites now so that you’re not sorry later! This one has been on my wish list forever, so I just bought it for our newly renovated bathroom. HURRY – seriously! There’s a lot of items already sold out – it’s first come, first served.
