Getting Ready for the Workshop

The Gardner home is bustling today—tonight is our first workshop of the year!

We’re all busy getting ready. Sara and Shalae (both demonstrators) will be demonstrating a project, Shanna is making some delicious yummies, and I’m the hostess.

When I was trying to decide who to invite, I decided to do a workshop for all the women in our ward (Church congregation). That’s quite a large group, so I did a TON of invitations because I didn’t want to leave anyone out, and as a hostess, I know that the more people I invite, the more likely I am to have a large group!

Sara created the invitation in My Digital Studio (and showed it on her My Digital Studio blog) a few weeks ago. Of course, me being me, I had to add a little dimension and texture—I really love the difference that makes.

I’ve been handing delivering the invitation over the last week—I wouldn’t necessarily encourage that for hostesses; it took a lot of time!) I had fun though—I drove and took Sidney, who actually did the work, jumping in and out of the car.

Even though I did put “RSVP” on the invitation, I’m not sure how many people are actually coming; you all know how that goes! I have heard from several ladies though, and I can tell they are excited! Each person who has RSVP’ed has mentioned they are looking forward to a fun night out, stamping and socializing with friends. A few have actually giggled as they’ve chatted with me—I can tell they’re looking forward to it! That’s what Stampin’ Up! is all about.

Of course, I’ll post a full report tomorrow. In the meantime, wish us luck!
