Celebration Time

December 7, 2015

I was extremely lucky to get together with the lovely ladies who attend my classes at home and support my business in many, many, ways as well as my downline.  We shared a lovely lunch (thanks so much to my husband who willingly dons his chefs hat and cooks the barbeque) lots of laughs and generally had a great catch up.

I also want to thank my three little helpers, my two granddaughters (thanks Abi and Elyssa) who love to hand out my Christmas gifts and also help to serve and share around the snacks and my grandson (thanks Ethan) who is also a dab hand at barbequeing (not sure if that is a word).  I try to give each of my ladies a little gift to show my appreciation for their support and friendship over the last 12 months.  This year I used My Digital Studio (how sad I am that this has retired) to create the decoration for the front of the gift bags and also for the tags to label each of the handmade gifts.   Since I have at least one lady with dietary considerations, I add the ingredients to the back of the tag so they can be sure that they are safe for their use/consumption.016

Each bag contained a small chocolate bar, because everyone needs chocolate.  The Chocolate Bar Holder is available as a free tutorial.  This is the perfect way to present those cute little chocolate bars that Aldi sells.   This year I stamped one of the trees from the Festival of Trees stamp set using Garden Green ink.  I love how if you keep stamping you create the look of the forest, don’t you?  The greeting comes from the Holly Jolly Greetings stamp set (this stamp set isn’t retiring in January, woohoo) and is stamped in Real Red ink.  They are closed with a length of 1/8″ Striped Ribbon in either Garden Green or Real Red.  So cute aren’t they?  I also covered a small notebook using the same stamping decoration as the Chocolate Bar Holder and added the greetingfrom the Reason for the Season stamp set (these stamps aren’t retiring in January either) in Real Red ink .  The image panel was sponged around the edges using Garden Green ink before it was attached to the front of the notebook.  I added a small selection of homemade gifts, including a couple of Bath Bombs, some Rocky Road and a Peppermint Body Scrub which is just devine if you use if on your hands every time you wash – it makes them so soft and silky!

I was also spoiled with a swag of lovely gifts from these ladies, lost of chocolate and wine, which I know will be enjoyed over Christmas for which I thank them very much.

I am so looking forward to catching up with these ladies again in the New Year.

Bye for now,
