Christmas Extravaganza Open House!

Well, I've had strep throat for about a week now, so I'm scrambling to get ready for my annual Christmas Extravaganza Open House on Saturday. I am so excited about this event! I've invited several of my friends who are consultants with different direct sales companies to come to my house, and we all get a table to display our products. Then we all invite our friends, customers, families, neighbours - everyone! - to come for one-stop shopping! There will be representatives from Stampin' Up! (of course!), Epicure Selections, Tupperware, Home Interiors, Fifth Avenue Jewelry, Arbonne, Discovery Toys, Pampered Chef, Norwex and Avon. We have a big door prize draw that has products from all of the companies, so for every $50 a guest spends, she gets an entry.

Here is something I've been working on for my Stampin' Up! table. They are tins with note cards that I think would be great teacher gifts!
For the cards, I just used the Note Cards that come in a pack of 20. I added some designer paper and stamping accents to those. Each tin has 8 cards and envelopes (I would have put in more, but they barely close with the 8!). I also included a gift card with each tin. I made Christmas and apple themed tins, using the I Wish Scrappin' Kit and Summer Picnic papers.

Thanks for reading, and if you're in my area, make sure you stop by on Saturday! (Just email me for the address.)

Blessings to you,

Shannon, glad to hear that you are feeling better. I absolutely love the tins. I may have to try those for some Christmas gifts for teachers. Thanks for the idea. Oh, did you get my email that I did receive my blog candy? If not I did get it last week. Thanks so much and love it!!
