My upline Rhonda and I put on 4 events a year in Arizona for Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators, and their guests.
One of these events is called Stamp & Scrap University (SSU), the final one is this Saturday. Before the event we have the Demonstrators who will teach the day of the event over to our houses, I live in the boonies, ahh…the smell of horse poop,, and she lives in the City, ahh…the smell of car exhaust….sorry but I think I will pick (pick might not be the best word, sounds like I am gonna touch it….how about choose) the horse poop….although it sure is nice to be near the mall…ok back to SSU. Anyway some Demonstrators come to my house, and some go to Rhonda’s, based on where they live.
About a week prior to the event, we set up bins or totes with the supplies needed for that technique. At SSU, attendees make a 6×6 album with 24 different techniques in it, they learn 12 in the am and 12 different ones in the pm session. So prior to the event we have to teach the Demonstrators how to do the technique that they will be teaching that day, plus since they will be working, they have to come ahead of time to make the techniques in the session they will be working. Clear as mud?
So last night was my last night of having Demonstrators over, I should have taken a picture of what the tables look like now…ha! But this is what it looked like prior, there are 4 tables set up in all, and everyone just rotates to each tote to complete their project.
One of the techniques in the Fun and Funky section of the book that they are going to learn is the Pinwheel card. This was fun to make, so easy with just a tag punch and some origami, and it is so colorful with Stampin’ Up!’s new background paper "East Coast Prep", and I love the Rub-on’s, and these ones are free during Sale-A-Bration, so that makes them even better.
So today is the day I make all the Thank you gifts for the volunteers, then pack the totes and hope I have not forgotten anything.
I want to have a chance to get my walls bare, and move anything I can for the big paint job this coming week. Maybe if I ask really nice my hubby will get started on Saturday while I am at SSU, and we can finish up on Sunday or Monday, and I can get everything back to normal the first part of the week. Sounds easy enough doesn’t it? You can see in the picture of the totes my pieces of cardstock taped beside the door as my test area….ha!!!
Have a super day, and thanks for stopping in!
