A Little of This and That
It's been an interesting few days, and by interesting, I mean good stuff happenin'. First, I was tickled to be notified that my April Showers card was chosen by Tiffany Bauer this week as one of the cards featured on My Crafty Picks #62 - woohoo! Thanks, Tiffany, you made my day!
Then, I finally got the iPhone I've been waiting for. Had to wait for the contract with one carrier to end so I could switch carriers. I even sent my very first text message yesterday. (Yeah, I've finally joined the 21st Century, lol.) And let me tell you, the learning curve is impressive. :-)
DH got a new phone, too, but all he wanted was a phone, with "no fancy stuff." He just uses it as a phone while at work and shuts it off when he gets home. Luddite.
This week is all about prepping for a class Thursday afternoon, then a team meeting Thursday evening with my downline, and then the big Mystery Hostess Retirement Party* on Friday evening. This is the invitation that was sent out. It needed to be something quick and easy to make in multiples, and yet be eye-catching.
The "Bring a Friend" circle is mounted on a U-shaped strip of acetate, so it bobbles when the card is opened. It was stamped on the leftover circles punched from the front of the card.
* The theme of the party is focusing on items that will be retiring the end of May. We'll be making three projects, enjoying scrumptious snackies, giving away prizes AND having a drawing at the end from the people who qualified to see who the hostess will be. The winner gets all the Hostess Benefits, just as if she held the party herself! But everyone will go home with a prize of some sort. There's room for a few more, if you want to come. Contact me for details before Thursday night!
