The one about starting a blog

I started a blog when I started my Stampin' Up! business. Thankfully, the business has taken off better than the blog! I consider my first event, an open house on July 18, a success. And then a stamping friend submitted a surprise order, not tied to the open house. Thanks, friend!

From my open house, two friends booked workshops. Yay! Those are coming up this next week, Thursday and Sunday (not tomorrow). I've been preparing for them today, designing the make-n-take, deciding on hostess gifts, and trying to think of a door prize.

Even more exciting than the new business success...one of my childhood best friends is moving back to the Midwest from the East Coast this week, and she's landing right in my town! I am so excited I can hardly stand it. That's why I'm trying to get my workshops in order this weekend...so I can just concentrate on helping my friend and her family unpack and aclimate to little ol' Zumbrota.

And now I'm back to blogging! Here's the photo for this post. It was the 3-D item I demonstrated at my open house. How cute, copied from my upline Heidi, and using two things from the kitchen--an ice cream lid for the circle template and a brown lunch sack.

Paper: Whisper White, Wild Wasabi
