Springfest gift Exchange

Hello stampers! Just wanted to drop in with a quick post! Our third Springfest Stampers gathering is in the herstory books! It will go on record as the best yet! Each year when women return we get to know them better and new ones join us! Tracy and her volunteer staff made it a day of friendhsip, fun, food, and oh, yeah, PAPERCRAFTING! At the end of the day we have a gift exchange. Tracy had us all (nearly 100 women!) stand in a circle with our gift (wrapped, boxed or bagged). She made up a story on the spot using the words right and left throughout. Whenever she said one of those words we passed our gift in that direction! Fun, fun! This is the gift that I took to give. The CD case has a notepad inside and a pocket on the left that held a brand new Magnolia stamp! (I forgot to import the inside pic, I'll do that tomorrow)
I received a decorated gift bag with a matching box of note cards AND a beaded pen inside! Lynn E made it and I love it!
Here's a close up of our Honey Bee Tilda from Magnolia-licious!
Now if you want to see some other projects you can go to Tracy's Blog INKYDOODLES
She shows a couple more today, but if you scroll down to May 2 she showed a pic of the room we worked in AND a group pic of us after dinner-yep, finally a pic of me has made the internet! SCARY!! Leave Tracy some love, please, she has a surgery scheduled for 8:00 am!
then head over to KIND CREATIONs to see what Lisa made for her shoebox
Tomorrow I'll show my shoebox project.
Have a great Monday! ( I wish I'd taken the day off!)

ooooh, love your gift set!! I bet it was cherished. Funny to see that you got my friend Lynn's gift, she'll be happy to hear that.
I am home, surgery went well. I was actually home by noon! If today is any indication of recovery I might sneak in some stamping tomorrow while the guys are at work and school! Don't tell on me though, Greg already thinks I am a bad patient, lol.
