A Stampin’ Up! Party Is . . .

. . . so much fun! I just had my first one, and I’m already ready for another! How did it happen? The amazing Bonnie Thurber (who many of you know and love) asked me out of the blue one day if I would be a hostess. I think my jaw may have dropped . . . just a bit. It’s not everyone who gets a chance to party with Bonnie, so . . . woo hoo! I invited my friends, my daughter, my daughter’s BFFs—and got ready to break out the cookies and punch!

Now, let me tell you about our Bonnie. Not only is she Miss Paper Pumpkin herself, but she is also the Demonstrator Training and Special Events Director. And she is exactly who she appears to be—delightful, friendly, down-to-earth, and (as her demonstrator friends in Australia call her), “cheeky.” She puts on a great party, and you are left with the impression that as much as she loves selling Stampin’ Up! products, she loves people more.

The party was a success. We learned about MDS and Paper Pumpkin, we made a super-cute card . . . and the Sweet Tooth Fairy cookies were awesome.

Here is the card my son made. (It was his first attempt at card making, so I’m proud of him!)

For those of you who are demonstrators, remember to do as Bonnie did: just ask! I was thrilled to have a party.
