When You’re Going to be Waiting for Hours, Bring Stamping Supplies

I had to go to our local Prompt Care on Wednesday and just knew I’d be there waiting.  For hours.  So before I left home I gathered up eleven pages of freshly printed fashion show tickets for our Fire Auxiliary’s annual fund raising Fashion Show.  This year’s theme is Garden Party and I figured the Avant Garden Sale-a-Bration stamp set would be a quick and easy way to decorate the tickets.  I’ve been making these tickets for the past 5-6 years (or more?).

Into my Stampin’ Up! convention bag I placed my Clear Blocks, Stampin’ Scrub and Stampin’ Mist, 4 stamp pads, an old stamping order board for stamping stability, my paper snips (just in case) and some business cards.  You never know when someone might want one!  (maybe not in a medical prompt care waiting room though!) And I had my pre-printed card stock.

I managed to get all eleven sheets stamped while in the waiting room.  The only attention I got was from a toddler and a woman with a protective face mask sitting next to me who didn’t speak much English.  But she did really admire the pretty colors of what I was stamping.

Here are my finished sheets, cut in half before I remembered to photograph them.

I got them all cut after dinner and will deliver them to the gal who’s in charge of selling the tickets later this morning.  Gratefully my part is done, even a week before they were due.  One just can’t pass up the opportunity of totally idle time.  I was able to work on my lap in the small space of the chair I was sitting in.  For more than two hours.  And I finished my project, except for the cutting.

Question:  What year did we receive this Stampin’ Up! convention bag with black patent-like straps and pockets for photos?  I’m thinking it was over ten years ago.
