whew, I'm still done in!  My fellow demo, Julie Coyle and I collaborated with several of our downline on the Rubber Stamper Expo and I will be happy to report it was a great event.  Very nicely coordinated and jammed full of great ideas!  We've spent the last week creating sample, make and takes and displays for the event.  Would I be a bit smug to say I thought the display was pretty sharp looking.  I worked  the event on Saturday and Julie and girls on Sunday.  My helpers were Cheryl Lentz,my MOM! and a very dear customer D. Engler.  They worked the booth and make and takes with me and when I say worked, I mean WORKED…we didn't have time to eat , sit down or even visit the girls room!  Thanks so much for helping make this a very successful, fun event.  

Here's two of the Make and Takes we had at our booth.  We sold out of every single one of them and even had to prep more for Sunday.  Take a peak.  This is a Gift Tag holder, there are 3 2×2 gift tags in a cello bag.  Very cute and quick Secret Santa gift.  Cello bags are available in our big catalog, I used the small, flat cello bags.Expo1

This cards pulls out that long forgetten masking technique.  Simply stamp the image on scratch paper, cut around the house and make a hill.  Then sponge around creating a haloed ski effect. 

Now several of you were wishing you could have purchased this as a cash and carry at the expo. Remember, even though our policy is not to have cash and carry in that manner, you can simply log in to my and order this stamp set directly.  It will arrive in about one week.  You do NOT need to attend a party to place and order!  All for no, my warm bed is calling!
