FUN AND FABULOUS EVENT...

Yesterday, I was honored to be included in a get together with several super creative crafters from the Island. Teri wanted to do a "test run" for this type of event for her crafting sisters to get to meet, participate in some projects, demos and SHOPPING! A special shout out to Danny, Barbie and Sunny Rosario who were so generous to let us use their showroom for the event. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!

Among the demonstrators were Jen who did a Cricut demo and had products from her store Little C's to sell. Thanks Jen for taking time out of your busy schedule! Jodi was gracious enough to do a demo on her spectacular coloring skills. Thanks Jodi for showing us your techinques ... I learned a lot and I hope to come close to your skill level! Claudette did a demo on her excellent skills working with digital images. She was even more generous and made us all name tags using her gorgeous Sweeties. Thanks Claudette you are just the sweetest! Manle of Pineapple Cove was gracious enough to have a kiosk for digi scrapbooking. She has some awesome designs and you need to check her store out at Kahala Mall. Thanks Manle ... you are so generous to take time out of your busy schedule to meet us! Joy of Tamiko's brought products from her store to sell ... We also had a slew of items from Roses on Paper, and I couldn't resist getting those new Belles n Whistles stamps. WHOOHOO. BOY SHE HAD SOME DEALS that you just couldn't pass on. Thanks Joy joining in the FUN! Sorry, I don't have pictures of the projects because I was too busy socializing that I didn't finish them ... LOL!

Last but not least we have Teri. As you all know from reading her blog, she has some issues with her hip, but she was still able to go through with the event. She scored some awesome donations from local vendors and was able to give every participant a goodie bag filled with surprises, had she also had lots of prizes to giveaway. Teri is such a generous and giving person ... LOVE YOU GIRL!!! I think she did such a fabulous job, and I sure hope she can put something together like this again.

I have to give a special thanks to a very special assistant ... Taelyn (Joy's DD) was really busy helping all of the crafters put their binder noteholders together. She is a pro just like her Mommy! THANK YOU TAELYN you are one AWESOME girl!

Here are pics of some of the awesome goodies I received from these special ladies...

Thanks for stopping by, and until we talk again ... ENJOY MAKING NEW FRIENDS!!!
