Stamping Frenzy…

Hi there friends!

Im sorry I haven’t posted much lately on my blog…. (I have been popping things on my Facebook Lynnzcrafters page if you’re worried about missing anything, be sure to “like” that page). Well the reason why is my calendar is bursting at the seams with the Book-a-thon results, lots of card and tag parties, and a big vendor fair I participated in yesterday.


This is me with my booth all set up. We were in the Atrium (where I go stamping with seniors every month). It warmed my heart that so many of my family and friends came out to shop! There were actually 20 vendors there, a wide selection of goods. A shout out to my wonderful sister Sue and niece Claire who brought me lunch (I don’t even think to pack a lunch), and watched my booth so I could use the ladies room.


These mini coffee cups were a huge hit! I put a Starbucks brand K-cup (for the Keurig machine) or people could swap out the coffee for Hershey kisses.


More goodies, I put individually wrapped mints inside the reindeer tins.


I made 40 of these mini magnets, stamped on our whisper white paper, punched out with 1″ circle punch, then used crystal effects to adhere to the flat bottom glass rocks. Hot glued the magnet on the back.


These post-it notes holders were very popular. I stayed away from decorating them with Christmas papers so people could keep them out year round.


All my Christmas gift card holders sold quickly. This one was everyone’s favorite.


Wanted to show you how I wrapped up hostess gifts for Sheila, who had her fun tag party Friday night!

What do you think? Would love to hear from you! Please leave a comment. Also, looking for your input, I am doing an event at Glendaal Elementary School in a few weeks- Holiday Bazaar, where the kids can shop for gifts for their families… Is there anything you think I should offer? Thanks for your input!

Have a wonderful Sunday! I’m off to a workshop up north today, my friend Elizabeth booked a party for today.

Thanks for visiting my blog, I really appreciate you!
