Customer Appreciation Event - Saturday, August 10 from 6-9pm

Here are some "before" pictures from the Customer Appreciation Event last night at my Gathering Inkspiration Stamp Studio in downtown Alma (209 E Superior St). 
I have to admit that things were pretty crazy last night!!!  We had so much fun!!  But, I got so busy chatting with everyone and helping with projects and answering questions that I completely forgot to take any pictures as the event was happening!! - even with a BIG NOTE to remind myself to "take pictures" - maybe next time??!!
So, here are those "before" shots.....
We'll start with the treats!! 
I made these fun cello treat bags filled with Kettle Korn for everyone that came last night!!
I put out a little spread for everyone.  The funniest part.... my family kept coming in to the kitchen yesterday wondering "why was I making all of this food??"  Apparently, they haven't seen me in the kitchen much lately and just couldn't get over the fact that I was actually preparing food!!  I have been pretty bad this summer, I'll have to admit!

We had cheese and crackers, grapes, tomatoes/basil/olive oil on crusty toast, pretzels, prosciutto & melon, refreshments and cookies!!  After everyone left, I spent just a little time "cleaning up" - those cookies from Carolyn's Cakes sure were good!!

Here are the Make-n-Takes all ready to go......

 I wanted to make sure everyone knew how awesome the Paper Pumpkin kits are and that they are only $10.00 for the next two months (when you sign up by August 31!).

I also have some "extra" classes that I'll be doing over the next few weeks!!  I have a Birthday Banner Class on Tuesday, August 20, a Halloween "Spooky" Banner class on Thursday, September 19 and a Holiday Stamp-a-Stack Class on Sunday, September 15.  I have displays of each of these classes down at the studio - if you weren't able to make it last night, stop down and check them out sometime!!

And.... as advertised....  I brought back the Buy 1, Get 1 Free Items!!  They were a big hit, as always!!

Thank you so much to each and every one of you who joined us last night!  Like I said, things were a little crazy - I think EVERYONE showed up at just about 6pm - and the studio is not that big!!  But, I think everyone was able to mingle, have a few snacks, shop and create some fun projects, too!!
I so appreciate each and every one of you!!  And I hope I was able to show that last night!!
Take good care of yourselves, and I hope to see you again soon!!
