Last night was my monthly stamping bingo night. I had to use some new space because my church and other locations were booked. This room is at the Rexford firehouse and boy was it lovely! My helpers who came early…. I could never do these events without you wonderful friends, thank you from the bottom of my heart! this front table is where I sat to be the bingo caller, and had all the prizes on display. I found a lovely Pandora station of mariachi music that we played throughout the evening which was so fun. I found the absolute cutest paper products, mini morocco’s, and this neat goodie bag all on Amazon. It really helped pull the theme together. Everyone was in the fiesta spirit, and we had a super organized sign-up sheet/Google document and everyone contributed to a taco and fajita bar for dinner before we started stamping. We had two kinds of homemade salsa, guacamole, chicken, ground beef, lettuce, tomatoes, peppers and onions, cheese, sour cream, nacho chips, taco shells (soft and hard), margaritas, some other adult beverages, lemonade, seltzer, and delicious desserts too! Churros, brownies, cinnamon cookies and rosettes (I think that’s what they’re called). All I can say is it was so delicious and I am so thankful from the bottom of my heart for such wonderful coordination, loved everything!
We had a good turn out, these nice long tables made it extra roomy and the lighting was fantastic also!
I have to say the margaritas were delicious and I don’t think anyone left hungry or thirsty that’s for sure.
In order to help increase their chances to win, extra bingo boards were available and our largest jackpot of all went to a brand new person who had never stamped or been to bingo before, congratulations Karen M. 💰
She was the guest of one of our newest Lynnzcrafters, Judi P.
First winner of the night was Jane who was super excited to get the butterfly gala bundle!
And here’s Judi (the newest team member I spoke about) she won our second game of bingo and picked out the new Storage by Stampin’ Up!
Next up was Stephanie who won a lovely bundle with two stamps sets, DSP, blender pens, and sponge brayers.
Alexis was our next bingo winner in game four and she was so thrilled that the Piece of Cake bundle was available!
Game five went to Sheila and she got the soon to retire flowering desert set with two kinds of embossing paste, stencils and utensils.
And the last game of the night went to Kathy- which included a pack of watercolor paper, Brusho crystals, spritzers, and two fabulous stamp sets.
After all the stamping was done and bingo was over these fabulous ladies helped me clean up and I tallied the orders and gave away even more raffle tickets. The grand raffle prize was a brand new big shot machine!
This is Meri, she won the big shot and this was only her second time coming to bingo, congratulations!
I raffled off the cute piñata- which Laurie won- and all those ladies are the ones who stayed to help me clean up. Thank you so much friends! 😘❤️😘
I’d like to give a shout out to my friend Nancy who came over the week before to help me do all the big shot work and prep for this event. And to my wonderful team Lynnzcrafters, especially Kathy who so kindly helped with all the set up and clean up!
It truly takes a village to have an event like this, and I couldn’t do it without them. I am so blessed and thankful to have these wonderful friends and all their support and all of the interest from my friends and customers, thank you for helping bingo be such a fabulous event. I love the positivity, comradeship, and plain old fun!
I do not advertise for bingo because almost every bingo night fills up from the people who attend previously, and I use this night as a kind a VIP monthly event.
I will share the cards we made another night, they were bright and colorful and Mexican inspired.
Thank you so much for reading this post today, I hope you have a wonderful day!
