6 Month Celebrations

Guess what!!! I have been a Stampin' Up demonstrator for 6 months!!! Yeah, yeah I know, doesn't sound like much, but for me it is a big thing and I wouldn't be here if it wasn't for the great bunch of girls I have that come to my workshops each month.
I consider myself very lucky and very blessed for the wonderful group I have and since I have been doing this now with these girls for the last six months, I thought I might give a little back to them to say "Thank you very much, all of you, for your wonderful support and for your friendships - I certainly wouldn't still be doing it without you girls".
I have about 13 who try to come each month which I have separated into two groups. They all don't get to come every time but they all, always make an effort to come regularly. And I appreciate them all. Some of them I have only met since doing SU.

These are some of the little thank you gifts that I made up for "my" girls. I got the idea to make them when I saw one on my upline, Karen's blog. I found the instructions for this "Box-in-a-Bag"
here. Aren't they just the cutest. Originally I was only going to make one or two as one of my "prizes" but when I made the first one up, it was smaller than I imagined, so I changed my thank you gifts to these bags. I think they went down a treat.
Then because it was a "celebration" I also made up these "prizes" to give out. I made one lot for each group - enough so that everyone got a prize. I used an idea I got from fellow team member Leigh for them to win their prize. I got them to each choose a gift and then I told them we would now play a game called "Left/Right" where I read a story and they have to pass their prize left or right when they hear the word. I don't know about them but I was laughing soooo hard, I could hardly read the story!!!!

I made these four cards to go with the major prize for the day of the matching stamp set. I got the idea for these out of the SU catalogue. I was very pleased with how they turned out. Very simple but very effective.

I think a great day was had by all! Well I had a great day LOL. Considering how I was feeling the night before the workshop with my full-on weeks leading up to it. But I really enjoyed myself as I also do when I get together with the girls. Thank you.
