Default Woohoo! $1400.00 Workshop!!

I had my annual workshop this weekend. I always have one every fall, in the beginning of October. I tried not to have high expectations as a few people that usually order were not this year, and with the economy the way it is, people don't have alot of spare money. I even thought about not having it, but several of my friends asked me over the summer if I was having it, so I went ahead with it!
Well, on top of my regular stamping friends attending, I had a few husbands order some Christmas gifts for their wives, and ended up with a 1400 dollar total!!
I got to choose a bunch of free stuff, and hostess sets! I was so excited, grinning ear to ear!
Now to wait to get the boxes!!

Wow...congrats! Glad that you had some nice folks out stimulating the economy. Bet it will feel like Christmas when you pick out and get your hostess goodies. You'll have to tell us everything you got.

Thanks! I was in shock, needless to say! A lot of the ladies had gone a LONG time without purchasing. Holiday gifts helped out, as well as Trick Or Treat Supplies and Christmas cards supplies. I am getting a lot of small stuff-the entire In Color set in ink pad, re inker and cardstock.
Also getting a bunch of stuff I have wanted to try like Chipboard.
Getting Absolutely Fabulous, and some great rub ons!!
It was a very blessed weekend!
