Throughout my Stampin' Up! career, I have done many things to help promote my business. I've done craft fairs, stamp-a-stacks, crops, workshops, etc. But by far, my favorite class I've ever done is when I had my monthly hostess club.
I had six gals commit to purchasing $25 of Stampin' Up! per month for six months. During that time, they had the opportunity to "be the hostess" and receive all the Host Benefits for their designated month. We would meet once a month at my house to stamp together and place our orders.
The hostess club went on for about three years. Many gals were members for all three years. Others coming and going and new friendships formed.
These sweet gals are some of my very best stamping friends ever. We laughed and cried and complained together. We went through babies and cancer and teenagers together. And of course we stamped together. It goes without saying that I miss our monthly get-togethers immensely.
Our last time meeting together was in June and "the stamp ladies" (as my family always loving referred to them as) presented me with a going-away gift. Needless to say I was more than a little emotional.
Since I finally have started stamping again, I want to find more gals to stamp with me. So I'm hosting a Christmas Cards and Crafts Girl's Night Out. This is not a workshop. There will be no Stampin' Up! sales pitch. I don't even plan on handing out catalogs (unless they ask of course!). I just want to enjoy the fun of sitting around a table with a group of women, laughing because they can't open the stamp pad. Or they made their card upside-down. Or all the other crazy stuff that happens when women and ink and paper get together. :)
Here is my invite:
Stamps: Festival of Trees, Sassy Salutations
Ink: Garden Green, Real Red
Paper: Whisper White, Silver Glimmer
Accessories: Filigree Frame EF, Tree Punch, Star Punch (retired... I need to order the new Itty Bitty one!), Silver Ribbon
