Today I had my downline Christmas Pizza Party, (we sure missed all of you that couldn't make it!!) When the girls got here I put the name of an item out of the catalog on a post it note and stuck it to their back, more tools and things like that, not embellishments or stamp sets, and then they had to go around and try to guess what they were. It is fun and helps people mingle if they are new.
We usually do a shoebox swap but this year we had these gorgeous Christmas boxes we could order so we decided to do these instead. Psstt…you can order your own over in the clearance rack, item #129024 and it includes everything, except the inks, glues and stamp sets. Please remember items are while supplies last.
This was a blast and it made making the box so much more fun and quick…well it seemed quicker…ha!
Here's Julie, she was making two.
Betty was having fun too…and I think she secretly was glad it was this weekend, instead of last weekend when it did nothing but rain…eh Betty?
Mari in all her excitement wiggled and is blurry…cause it couldn't be the photographer…ha!
Tari, was a speed demon stamper, she was done first.
Becky had some great tips when it came to the fabric.
Thelma & Louise…oh I mean Rhon & Kim…I almost had to separate their table, MAMMa and these two were just having too much fun!!! Ha!
MAMMa and her fun Christmas hat and matching shirt.
Tari and her box…I wish I had of timed her. We had the video on in the background with Shelli & Sara making their box and we pretended they were here. So when they would joke and stuff we would laugh too. It's the simple things in life isn't it?
So I was a total dork and forgot to take pictures of the girls and their boxes…here is mine.
What is cool is everything is cut for you, you just have to glue, and stamp and have fun. Friendship, Pizza and Laughter are not included…you gotta supply your own…that is the fun part.
I really think you should zip on over and pick up a couple of these, even if you don't make them before Christmas, you could make them Christmas day with your family and friends and use them to put this year's Christmas cards in.
I made up a little goodie for the girls coming to the party, it is usually something different each year and easy to recreate.
Here's the mess….
Here's the "gas" that kept us energized…Kim was working on other stuff.
She would find one that was totally almost white covered in the sour stuff and she double dog dared me to eat it…well what would you have done? Insert sour face here.
All waiting to go to a new home.
I just rolled strips of First Edition DSP up and put them in a glass ornament, I glued on a bow, and pinned on the greeting with a vintage trinket, and used some shreddie inside our kraft box, and then tied it up and it looked cute I thought.
Well this old gal is going to head to bed, we have been up late the last few nights and it is catching up with me.
Have a blessed Sunday and thanks for stopping in.

Ha! All those smiles made me smile too! Love the boxes and those ornaments are really pretty!
Oh, more and more fun. Your finished box looks great. I also like the ornaments you made. They look so pretty, all boxed up and ready to go.
Hey, Diana! Just thought you would enjoy this. I "pinned" your ornament today on Pinterest and it was re-pinned 6 times! Lots of people love it!!

How fun. I would have loved to be there. I have made two of those boxes and had my sister over where we each made one. What fun.
