Christmas Market at the Roundhouse

It's a winter wonderland out there, so what better day to show you our stand from the Christmas Market at the Roundhouse last weekend. It was a steep learning curve for us, the beginners, but we loved it and are definitely up for next year’s Fabulous Places Christmas Market – and probably the summer one, too!

On our stand we had a selection of products and stamped projects. Several people wanted to buy our cards – and I could have sold my Eiffel Tower journal over and over again! – but we were there to promote Stampin’ Up!® and the idea of making your own handcrafted projects.

It was wonderful to receive to many visitors, and to get so many people excited about rubber stamping! I hope to see lots of them at my classes and events in 2011.

One of the most popular items on the stand was the Designer Series Paper star. Alison and Tricia had made a few of these to put on the tree and dot around the stall. I will be sending the template to everyone on my mailing list but if you’d like one, too, please leave a comment and I’ll get one to you.

The most traumatic part of the day for Alison was cutting into her brand new roll of Basic Black 1¼” Striped Grosgrain ribbon to make tie-backs for the “curtains” and to decorate the tree pot. But don’t worry, she will be using it again!

Thanks to Alison and Tricia for all the help, and big thanks, too, to Kelly, who made so many fabulous things on the stall, including the stunning tie-back holders. She’s a real stamping star and I know a lot of you are concerned about her because she hasn’t updated her blog recently, but she has had to cut back on crafting and computer time for health reasons, unfortunately. But she’s fine and, if you sign up for any of my classes in 2011, I’m sure you’ll be seeing a lot more of her!

Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. I love receiving genuine comments - I do get bored of deleting dodgy links though!
