Well, I made it to Convention and home again in one piece...with a nasty case of Strep Throat. Yuck! And, to top it off, I came home to 2 kids with Strep Throat and one with an infected toe (double yuck!). I have spent waaaaay too much time at the doctor the last few days, but on the plus side, we are all starting to feel better.
I went to Convention with a group of my downline and we had a blast!
That's us on Check-in Day waiting to get our name tags (didn't get mailed to us because of the postal strike) and our Convention Bags and stamps. We had a great day!
I wanted to do something special for all my downline that attended convention this year, so I decided to make all of them a little gift. Here's what I came up with...
I always take a lot of notes during convention, and there's never enough space in the convention book for notes, so I thought this would be great for them!
I covered a notebook and altered a pen to match. I used the digital download for MDS of the convention logo for the So Saffron section on the cover. I just printed it in Old Olive on So Saffron cardstock with my printer. And, since the theme was Grow, I used the Just Believe set on some First Edition DSP for a fun gardeny look. I also did the same thing for the paper in the pen.
I also covered a HUGE pack of Tic Tacs for them...of course, it had to go with the theme!
It was easy to make the Tic Tac container pretty! I just covered it with some stamped cardstock and made a fun little belly band to finish it off.
Well, I came home with my brain swimming with ideas for projects and classes. I'm hoping to feel great by the end of the week (my voice is slowly coming back!) so I can sit down and plan some classes to share some fun new ideas with you.
Have an inspired day!
