Origami Men's Shirts AND June 2017 Team Meeting!

Crafters -

Didn't you just LOVE those cute Origami shirts we did for Father's Day at Ronald McDonald House?

Now, those have been around a while! I can remember showing those at our Card Ministry a few YEARS ago when we made some men's cards!

So that was on Sunday. THEN on Tuesday, I had my team meeting. We had a BLAST! There were only five in attendance, but two of the ladies watched us on our Facebook Live video of the team meeting - just for my team members! Especially since I have TWO who are in FLORIDA! It's a little bit of a commute to come up here.  :)

Well... yesterday I did a Facebook LIVE video showing how to make those cute men's shirts - how to fold, assemble and even place onto a card! AND I showed the items we made at our Team Meeting!

Want to see the video? You can watch it on my Facebook page!

Make sure you tune in on Wednesdays at 11:30 am Eastern to watch. I try to keep them to 30 …

Ronald McDonald House - Happy Father's Day!

Crafters -

Sunday was Father's Day. We lost my dad to cancer (#cancersucks) two years ago. But my husband was able to spend the weekend with his mom. He came home Sunday morning and we were blessed to spend time with our son and my mom.

I schedule our crafting day at the Columbus, Ohio Ronald McDonald House (RMHC) for the THIRD Sunday of the month. However, last month, we crafted on Mother's Day, so I had thought "let's keep the crafting on Father's Day" too! It was just as big a HIT!

Thankfully, my mom is visiting for the summer AND she's part of my team, so guess who went with me to RMHC? And we met my friend and teammate Linda there also! Check out the table before we started...

And here are some of the FABULOUS cards the crafters made. Read to the bottom of this post for the backstories on some of the cards....

This last photo. I have some "splaining" to do. (Anyone else remember I Love Lucy? LOVED that show!)

A new Dad made the card on the top le…

I did this Facebook LIVE yesterday - I'm doing a Facebook LIVE once a week! You'll get a good laugh at the beginning when my charger fell! But other than that, you will really like to new stamp sets, the new papers, the new thinlits/framelits, just EVERYTHING!

My team meeting is on Tuesday and I'm trying to decide which items we should play with... hmmm....

Bingo Night, ending with a BOGO!

Crafters -

We had so much fun on Friday evening! Seriously, I slept SO well after our Bingo Night! And I even heard from one of the other ladies and she said the SAME THING!

We played three games of Bingo and there were three prizes. Then we MADE three cards. Followed by three MORE games of Bingo - and we played FUN Bingo with those three! And we ended the evening with a sneak peek at my BOGO items.

A good time was had by all!

Check out the prizes the crafters won!

Don't all of the ladies have just the BEST SMILES? I think they were happy with their goodies. Can't wait to see what they make with them!

I'm not sure which was the favorite prize... The This Little Piggy Clear Mount Stamp Set, Tranquil Tulips Photopolymer Mount HOST set (only available with Host/Stampin' Rewards!) or the pink Stampin'Up! mug! I had this mug from YEARS ago and came across my stash - still in their original boxes! You may see this mug again as a prize in the future. "Hi - my name is Dawn …

BINGO Night and First BOGO of 2017!!

Check it out!

Can you tell I'm getting ready for my BINGO Night on Friday evening (June 9th)? I'm also going to be setting out some BOGO items too. THIS is what I have so far! (You can read more about my Bingo Night HERE.)

Did you see the thinlits, framelits, and embossing folders in the back of the one box? And I'm still working my way through my stuff! I'm still working on the bundles that have matching thinlits/framelits too!

And this doesn't even include the rest of the thinlits, framelits, embossing folders, punches, ribbons, papers, etc! Can't wait!!!!

So looking forward to Friday evening's BINGO and my first BOGO of 2017 - hope to see you here too!
