What a blast!

I held my first open house yesterday and I had so much fun!  Even the work I put into it was fun.  I had intended to post about it last night, but I made the mistake of sitting down (to get off my swollen feet) and I must have gone out almost instantly...I woke up around 1:30 a.m.  Ooops.

Anyway, I had six guests in attendance.  There were several ladies that I had not seen in a while, so it was such a pleasure to reconnect with them.  I sure hope that I see them more frequently.  I offered eight different projects.  One day I'll learn to edit myself better, but it's all good as everyone really seemed to have fun and loved the projects they made.

Kim M. was the lucky winner of the hostess rewards.  She won $80 in free product and a 1/2 price item of her choice.  I'm so happy for her.
Here is my table set up.  Of course, what I see is my cheap window treatments.  I'm finally getting some vertical blinds though.  They were supposed to have already been installed, but they're on backorder.   Just my luck.
I used my fireplace to display a board with August's Constant Campaign and Triple Play Offer, as well as some of my favorite CTMH products....at least out of the products I own at this time.  lol
A display of the current and future Stamp of the Month sets.
My How-To Books...Can't wait to add the others...especially the new "Magic" book.
I used my coffee table to display catalogs and my prize basket.

I set my computer armoire up to encourage people to sign up for my website, Meetup group and blog. But wouldn't you know it, AT&T struck again. Lost service for quite some time and then it was spotty when it was "working". Did I mention that luck thing.
I set my craft room up for sign-ups to upcoming classes.
Isn't this cake just gorgeous?!  Publix did a wonderful job.  Thanks to Sherri Tozzi, my upline for offering this suggestion.  My kids would also like to thank her...as there was plenty left over.
Zoe had to be crated for the event, as she's not really an outside dog and at the nearly 100 degrees outside, I wasn't going to put her out there. She LOVES attention from people, so leaving her out wasn't really an option, because she would have gotten worked up everytime the doorbell rang and then proceed to beat them up with her tail.  She was sooooo good.  She only whined once, for just a second, and it was only after we were talking about her...and she knew it.  I made it up to her later with peanut butter. :)
