Getting Ready!

I feel like I’m not going to be ready- for anything this year! I’m normally really organised and have most things well ahead of time but recently I find myself playing major catch-up. I think I need to make better use of my calendar. I’m getting there though, albeit slowly!

It was quite exciting meeting 5 friends recently who all love SU that much that they’ve had to get it from an overseas relative.  They were really pleased to come along to one of my parties and be able to have a catalogue. They talked about their trips to the States where they just went shopping for stash and had extremely bulging suitcases by the time they re-entered British customs! They just love Stampin’Up! and their excitement rubbed off on others!

I’m starting to think about a special evening I’ve been asked to get involved with. It’s called ‘Pester Power’  and is being run by one of the local churches. It’s trying to encourage people against all the Christmas consumerism by giving them ideas to make presents and cut down on the cost. I’m going to be providing some packaging type present ideas (all the oldie-but-goodies) like sweet cones, snowman soup, decorated chocolate/cookie bags etc. etc.  Although its old hat to some crafters, I’m amazed at the reaction that these items get. People love them. Whoever invented these ideas needs a medal!!

So, the card- its unashamedly Christmassy, but we are getting very close and I need to get ready!!!!

Happy preparing!!xx

    At least you’re partially oraganized and thinking about other projects. My hat is off to you. Oh, and by the way, love your card.
