Open House Fun

Hi there!

I'm getting so busy... and I don't want to neglect my blogging buddies as I have been doing lately, so I am going to try and post more regularly by writing 2 or 3 posts at a time and having them scheduled to post about every other day. Does that sound good?? I hope so!!

I had my Stampin' Up! 2008 Fall/Winter Idea Book Open House (now that's a mouth full!) last weekend. I wanted to get some pictures posted for you guys... I had 3 gals come Friday night. **Waves HI to Traci, Teresa and Barb!** I was thankful it wasn't more as I was a bit unprepared plus my DH had to work so I had to keep an eye on the kiddos too.
I had 7 gals come by on Saturday. I was definitely better prepared! **Waves Hi to Dawn, Libby, Stephanie, Faith, Kathy, Melissa & Davinna!!**
Thanks so much for coming girls... it was so nice to finally meet some of you! I appreciate you taking time out of your busy schedules and coming to play with me!! And they can attest that I am CHEAP entertainment! I crack myself up sometimes and I'm glad I can make others laugh!
I am sorry I missed some ladies that wanted to come but couldn't. I hope we can meet up again in the future!
I was going to make those cute little purse candy holders that are the rage, but decided to change it up at the last minute! I used the Inspired By Nature set (FREE from Convention!!) and stamped up some gift bags. LOVE them! I used the Green Tea DSP too and they turned out so nice. Even if I did stamp the main image with the paper turned wrong way. So I had to improvise because I didn't want to redo them. Here's a picture...

Then I was trying to figure out what to put in them. A light bulb went on and I thought, 'Who wouldn't LOVE fresh picked peaches??' I picked some peaches Friday a.m. and every person who came to my Open House received a gift bag w/4 peaches in it.

Is that not just an AWESOME peach? I pick them at David Storch's farm. If you live locally and would like to check out his Upick (and he can pick it for you too) Farm, email me for his address and phone #. I love his farm. I have gotten GREAT produce from him! I've picked it all for myself and for others. We picked raspberries, blackberries, peaches, plums, apples, green beans, spaghetti squash, tomatoes, strawberries and corn! woo hoo.

THis post is getting a bit long so I will continue the Open House Goodies in the next post...
