USO Thank our Troops treats

San Antonio, TX Downtown USO  Dawn, Renee, Me (Kim), & Annette
Today, we got together to make 200 treats to honor our wonderful troops for the upcoming 4th of July weekend.  There were 6 wonderful ladies who gave their talents & great efforts to create 200 of  Renee's design that thank our troops.  Inside each little bag there are candies & tied with beautiful red ribbon & a small plastic soldier with a tag to "Thank" each one that will be able to pick one up at the down town USO & the airport USO.  Let's face it, without those beautiful men & women who don the USA uniform, be it Airman, Soldier, Marine, Sailor, or Coast Guardman, we would not be at liberty to live the free lives that we live.  So, "Thank Our Troops"; it takes such a short time, but it means the world to them. 
Thank you Martha, Sarah, Sherri, Dawn, Renee, & Annette....the treats came out wonderful & I hope to hear some of the great stories that come about due to the treats.

June 26th Paper Creations Workshop

  Here are the creations that our lovely ladies will be making for our Paper Creations Workshop at Alamo Craft Company tomorrow, 26th June.  I think that they will have a great time.  Only time will tell.
  All of the stamps & papers are current Stampin' Up! products.  I tried to incorporate a lot of the new Stampin' Up! upcoming  new catalog, available 1 July 2010. 

July 4th Treat Box & Uncle Sam

Our turn out for this MakeIt Take It was not as busy as last week's, but there were still some folks that enjoyed the fun & the treat boxes made.  Harriet Smith & Rhonda Christensen provided some of the customers at Alamo Craft Company with a hand made treat box that they made due to the customers not
having the time to sit & create one themselves. 
It always makes me smile when you see the light in someone's eyes as they complete a craft they made with their own hands.  We are all so capable of creating many things.  Our biggest hurdle to clear is our own inability to believe we can.  Create something today & make yourself & someone else Happy!

Make It Take Its Father's Day Gift Card Apron

Here is Renee Whitehead, a dear friend & an amazing crafter of paper.  She is my Stampin' Up!  up link & what fun it is to get to play with our stamps & paper together.
Yesterday at Alamo Craft Company where Renee & I both have a booth & hold classes for interested students, we hosted our first Stampin' Up! "Make It Take It" for young & old alike.  We had a good time & it was sweet to see young ones take the time to make their very own Father's Day Gift Card Apron card.  There were some very talented young people.  It was truly endearing to see them all work hard to make something just for their Father.
We , Renee, Rhonda, & myself will be hosting another "Make It Take It" next Thursday, June 24th at Alamo Craft Company.  We will be making a small trinket for 4th of July.  It should be fun too.  Anything that is red, white, & blue is always inspiring for me.

Bottle Cap Pincushions from Crafter's Circle

Here is a picture of the most recent class we had at Alamo Craft Company's "Crafter's Circle" for the month of June.  We had a lovely time with 6 ladies in attendance.  We had a lot of laughs & giggles & even a few complaints of not liking the project very much.  But all in all, it was a good time.
