Hostess Appreciation Party Fun

I know it has been almost a week since this party, but I have been recooperating from both the party and the fun Blog Tour! To tell you the truth...I couldn't find my camera to get some of these wonderful pictures off of. ;)

When you become a hostess with me or if you join one of my Hostess Clubs you automatically get invited to my annual Hostess Appreciation Party! I usually hold it in April to coincide with my Stampin' Up! Anniversary and it is my way of thanking all my wonderful hostess friends! Did you know I am going on my fifth year as a demonstrator?

This year I invited 58 Hostesses from 2008 and I had 18 wonderful ladies attend my event! I have been holding this at my home for the last 3 years, but I think I will need to start holding it at another venue! We were a little cramped...but thanks to everyone for not complaining one bit!

I served baked mostaccoli and salad from Portillos, and for some that stuck around, they got to enjoy some of Portillos yummy chocolate cake. How could I forget to serve that?! I gave away 42 brand new Stampin' UP! products from stamp sets to papers to embellishments to all my attending hostesses. Everyone went home with 2 prize items and some went home with 3 prize items. Congratulations to Peggy S who was one of the Grand Prize winners and went home with a brand new Tabletop Paper Cutter, and to Phyllis S who was the other Grand Prize winner and went home with the Define Your Life and Defining Alphabet stamp sets!

All attendees created what I call the "matchbook notecard set" using the Great Friend set from the Mini Occasions Catalog and the magical perforation tool on the cutter kit. I created this project as a special thank you to my hostesses. You may beg or plead but I will not be providing directions for this project - so please don't ask. If you want "in" on some of the FHEO (For Hostess Eyes Only) projects I create you are welcome to join one of my hostess clubs or become a hostess!
