Preparing For My Open House

Do you think that items just ‘appear’, magically, on the tables at an Open House?  I know as a guest, I’ve never even thought about that.  But as a ‘presenter’ I’m really thinking about it now.

It started with those three boxes filled with retired stamp sets.  Then it was the creeping overflow in my stampin’ studio.  It’s definitely time to jump on that before it takes over my room again.  I will admit, only because you all know I’m quite honest, I found more than 5 non-completed or even started Simply Created Kits.  Fun kits.  Just not completed.  I am parting with them at my Open House.  Come and get ’em while the price is right!

And finished cards or just card fronts!!!  Oh my gosh, I have a ton of them.  If you’re looking for any kind of card, come and check out that stash.  $.50 for a card front.  $1.00 for a completed card.  Envelopes not included–but available for .$20 apiece.

……….Six hours later—my tables are ready.  My room is not but it will be in order tomorrow.   I did make my guests gifts.  Now to design my Make & Take……….

I did finish this cute card holder that I brought home unfinished from Stampin’ Up!’s OnStage event in Salt Lake City last April.  It’s cute and unfortunately I won’t be able to duplicate it since I don’t have the machine to do the die-cuts–except for the Botanical BloomsBotanical Builder Framelits and the Big Shot.  I hope you like it.
