This past Monday evening, my downline Laurie and I participated in a cardmaking class/open house at a nearby local library. The event turned out to be a S-U-P-E-R success! A big thank you to Laurie for helping me out that evening, and one to Wendy, an employee of the library, who helped organize and promote the event. She made Super Stamp Girl look famous! Though, she nearly sent me into a mini panic attack when she called me to say she had 19 people signed up to attend for the evening! 19! That's an impressive number for any event, and I was very grateful for such a great turnout. Much to my surprise and delight, many of those attending were "newbies," who I truly hope enjoyed their evening and will attend future events, and, maybe (fingers crossed) become new stamping hobbyists. (I would say "fanatics", but that implies were all a little crazy and I can only speak for myself. . . )
Here are the "ads" that Wendy ran in the local library newsletter, as well as several newspapers:
I told you, Wendy made me look like a local celebrity, didn't she?
And, here are the two cards we made that evening:
The event was a great success! Over 14 women who attended the class responded that they wanted more. So, along with adding them to my monthly newsletter list of stamp camp events and activities, I'm also coordinating with Wendy for another library class in the spring of 2014!
