For a Special Friend

I have been volunteering at the Alzheimer's Association for 13 years.  About 11 of those years, I have had the pleasure to work with another volunteer who quickly became a very close friend of mine.  I look forward to seeing her each week as we work together to send out information to people who call in needing answers to their questions about Alzheimer's disease.
I made her this special "file folder" Christmas card. (check out this video by Dawn Griffith for instructions on how to make this here) The insert lifts out and I stamped a greeting on the inside and attached a gift card for her to one of her favorite restaurants.
Hats off to my special and amazing friend, Eleanore!

Demonstrator Holiday Stamp 'n Chat gift exchange

Each year my demonstrator friends and I get together for a holiday potluck at Christmas time.  We also do a hand-made holiday gift exchange.  This year I made a clock, shown above.  I decorated the box with Stampin' Up holiday papers and bow.  I hope whoever receives my gift will enjoy it!

Gift Card Holder

I made this fun gift card holder for a holiday gift.  There is a lady who is the cashier at an eatery that I frequent, and she is always so pleasant, and remembers me each time.  I wanted to let her know that I appreciate her kindness, so I made this for her.  I gave it to her the other day when I went out to lunch.  I was so surprised when she came around the counter to give me a hug!  Thank you Aisha for being you!

Holiday Tags Stamp Camp

These are the holiday tags we made at my holiday tags stamp camp. We enjoyed refreshments, holiday music, conversation, and stamping together.  There were even door prizes awarded. (everyone got one!)
Great fun was had by all.
Many thanks to all of my customers!
