Cricut Christmas Crop!

If you have not already signed up...there are only 2 spots left! Santa's sleigh is pulling out and it's loaded with tons of FUN! If you would like to come, call or come in first thing in the morning!

We have a fabulous day packed with Food, Fun & Prizes. I have been asked "What do you get for $25?"...

Food is an all day event...always! That's where I get my model like figure (NOT A WORD!). Fruit punch and iced tea are provided all day at no charge. Breakfast usually starts with coffee & international creamers, coffee cake, donuts & more. We quickly transition into lunch mode (I have some true chefs in my group...even if they won't admit it!). We have salads, sandwiches, cookies, cakes, pies, dips, crock pot meals & of course...MORE! Even MORE food comes out...and we just call one of the plates we load... "Dinner"! LOL!

I have many different games and prizes planned for tomorrow! We usually play a few games, but tomorrow is even better! NO ONE will be leaving WITHOUT AT LEAST ONE DOOR PRIZE! Coal will only be distributed if you look like you are NOT having fun! LOL! We play games like...let's make a deal, Scrapper's Bingo, Show Me, etc. Yeap...all for really cool prizes! I can't wait to give away tomorrow's goodies!!! Did I mention that there are several hundred dollars in giveaways tomorrow???

Everyone will be receiving a FREE RUDOLPH PAPER PIECING make n take! Bethany will be teaching a FREE gift card holder class! 12 hours of more croppin fun than you can handle! Santa's elves will be on hand if you have gifts that need wrapping, too! You also receive a 10% discount on all of your purchases for the day! It averages out to about $2 an hour & you'll probably get that back in prizes & discounts! WOW!

Games will be played throughout the day. Prizes will be given away throughout the day, too!

Bethany's FREE GIFT CARD Class will be at 3p.m. Supplies are included in your very low price of...Nothing! ZERO! ZILCH! FREE! It's our version of the stimulus package! LOL!

Well...I'm off to fill the sleigh ;-)

It's In the Box with Bethany!

Hello everyone! Just when I think I'm getting caught up time speeds right past me AGAIN! As always, I have much to let's get started!

Bethany's first class had a fabulous response! She had some of my favorite troublemakers...oops! I meant favorite friends ;-) in her class and she still came back! LOL! There was such an overwhelming response to her class! There are a few things that Bethany and I are going to streamline for future classes (you the bugs out :-) ) I can't wait to share those details...we've been working on them...and I know you will all be VERY PLEASED! We appreciate your support and patience. We Promise it will be worth your wait ;-).

Bethany will be teaching again this Sunday. She has created a beautiful project that you DO NOT want to miss! This can be interchanged for so many different things. This class is called "It's in the box with Bethany". There are only a couple of spots left!

Before I forget let me include a supply list reminder for those coming...

Aleen's quick dry tacky glue (or similar)
3-D Pop Dots (the clear thick gooey ones)
precision tip scissors

Things that will help, but are not required:
heat tool
tweezer bee tweezers

You will be using a versamark pad & metallic silver embossing powder. These will be provided for you, but there were some customers that expressed interest in bringing their own. This is fine, but is certainly not required.

Please share your thoughts about classes you would like to see in the future, or things that you think we can work on, to improve your experience! Bethany and I both value everyone's comments and concerns. We are looking forward to making 2010 SIMPLY FABULOUS!
