Every year I hold a Customer Appreciation Party to say thank you to my customers for supporting my business and stamping with me. My favorite part of the whole night is giving away prizes. What a joyful thing to make someone's day with a special gift to make them smile. I can only imagine what Oprah feels like when she gives away cars!!
It's also kind of fun to be on the receiving end of prize-winning. On the Stampin' Up! Cruise to Alaska, they had a guessing game in the hospitality room for us. Almost every day there was a new bag of Stampin' Up! goodies and we had to feel the bag and guess how many products were inside. And guess who won Bag 2!? ME!!
When we got back to our room after a late night in Juneau and a quick dinner, there were a message on my room phone saying that I had won! I screamed. I mean literally screamed! I was so excited! Unfortunately, the hospitality room was already closed. And the next morning we had to be off the ship bright and early for an excursion, so I had to wait the WHOLE next day before I could check in and claim my prize! Here I am with the bag:
And all the loot spread out on the table:
There were 34 items in the bag with a total value over $250!! WOW!! There was a lot of consumable stuff like ribbon, adhesive, buttons, envelopes, but also some fun stuff like a stamp set, Big Shot folder, a set of 10 markers (!), SIX packages of Rhinestones...
What a thrill!! Have you ever won a prize? Leave a comment and tell me about the biggest prize you ever won and I'll choose one random winner next Wednesday, June 15 to receive my 650K Blog Candy: the Playdate Rub-Ons and coordinating Funky Four stamp set. I'll also throw in a surprise item from my bag of loot!
