Last night was our December Downline meeting. We always have such a great time at our meetings. I really look forward to them each month. I wanted to give them each something special to show my appreciation for them. I gave each one a Stampin Up Clear Block engraved with their name. They turned out amazing. I should have taken pictures of the blocks before I wrapped them. Their blocks all say “Hand made by” with their name. This is a picture of my clear block.
And of course I couldn’t just hand them a block. I love that our Mini Pizza boxes fit these blocks perfectly.At our meetings, we don’t always sit in the same exact spot. And I didn’t want to assign seats, so I put all the little gift boxes under my Christmas tree in my studio.
I also found these felt pouches at a local store and I knew they would make awesome gifts but they were so plain. I asked a local embroidery company to embroider them for me and they turned out beautiful. They even did one “left-handed” for my one left-handed downline, Poli. And on the pouch, I added the Be Merry ornaments as my gift tags. I stamped all their names on the on the backside of the ornaments.
And this is our last Demonstrator meeting for 2017. I’m sad that they are all over for the year, but I can’t wait to start planning the meetings for next year! Does this look like fun to you?
