Demonstrator Christmas Party Gift Exchange

I love the flexibility that I have as a Stampin' Up! demonstrator to be here when my family needs me. Last week was one of those weeks! Only one of my four kids went to school all week and the other three were each home 1-2 days with fever, vomiting, or an extreme head cold. Needless to say, I was looking forward to our Demonstrator Team Christmas party in Rochester yesterday. The roads were nasty as we got our first snow of the year and it took longer than usual to get there. In fact, I think Margo and I spent more time in the car than we did at the party! But it was worth the drive to spend time with our friends!

We had a potluck and stamped some projects using new products from the Occasions Catalog and Sale-a-bration book and did our annual gift exchange. This is my favorite part! I love seeing the handmade gifts that everyone makes. We draw numbers and then it's your turn, you can steal a gift or open a new one.

I loved this jar that Alison made and snapped a pic of two more that she brought to display. How lucky for me -- she let me take one home! I picked the gorgeous blue one! The snowflake is white vinyl die cut with the Star of Light thinlits.
Debbie created this fun bank with vinyl words (all Stampin' Up-related) as a fun reminder of all the fun things to save your pennies for. Margo create the festive card on the front of the gift bag.
Cindy's gift was a Stampin' Spritzer holder. She included a couple spritzers (pictured here behind the cardstock holder. Check out this tutorial for UK Demonstrator Pootles (Sam Donald) to make one at home.
 My gift was the Christmas Sampler I posted yesterday. See it here.

I re-designed a new Christmas Sampler with Candy Cane Lane Designer Paper from the Holiday Catalog for my class tomorrow. I'll post a picture later today!
