We played five games of Bingo with great prizes which were new products from the Occasions catalog.  We had "Prize Patrol" in between each game.. EVERYONE got prizes each time! Then the winner of the last game won a $50 shopping spree!  And we had a second place winner and she also won a $50 shopping spree!  
BINGO is always so much fun!!

Santa's Workshop

I'm so excited about our upcoming Santa's Workshop!
I started doing these about three years ago, with the thought that it would be fun to get together the day after Thanksgiving, and NOT go to the malls, but get together and stamp and craft and get some last minute stuff done!  So that's what we do!  
For the first time, we'll meet in the dining room at  
The Sizzler Restaurant in Fullerton, on Harbor and Brea Blvd.
They have a fabulous, fresh salad bar that includes tacos, chili, soups, spaghetti, and soft serve ice cream and other desserts, PLUS all the great salad ingredients you could possibly want!  Of course you can also order a steak or shrimp or whatever sounds good to you.  So you won't go hungry for your dinner!   
SO, come and relax and have fun!  
I'm still creating, but here's some of the things I've come up with so far..   
A coffee caddy to hold candy, "K" cups, or whatever you would like!
Above:  M&M's in a treat tube make a cute gift card holder;
 a Rudolf cup is great for candy or a "K" cup;
a Cocoa packet is a fun neighbor or teacher gift;  
and chocolate-covered espresso beans make for another cute gift card holder. 
Handmade cards make a great gift! Let's decorate this box, and then fill it with four cards and envelopes.  
I have several more projects in the planning stage... you'll go home with lots of projects completed, and there will be some surprises too! 


Date: Friday, November 24, 2 - 9 pm
Cost: $60.
You will purchase your dinner at the Sizzler separately.
RSVP NOW.. no later than Monday, November 13.


You can see a video of these projects on my Facebook business page here, However you need to have a Facebook account to see the video.
