Scrapfest / CreativFest Wrap Up

I survived! Scrapfest / CreativFest 2017 in Mississauga was a lot of fun, but it was tiring for sure. Here I am, and it must have been early enough so I wasn’t yet drooping, but late enough so that I was awake (and smiling)…LOL. I had super helpers – Arlene was there for all three days, Anne made it for two (something about trick or treating with the grandchildren on the Saturday, I mean, really…..LOL), and my mother filled in on the final day too. Thank you to everyone who stopped by, filled out a ballot, chatted, shopped and visited. Thanks to my helpers, and thanks to Lisa of Scrapfest.

Congrats to Jackie H who won the free draw and had her choice of either a Big Shot Die Cutting Machine or a full set of Stampin’ Write Markers, and to Sandre, who won the same choice in the draw that was exclusively for those who purchased a starter kit by Sunday.

yamstamps scrapfest 2017 make and takes

These are the various free make and takes we did over the three days. We did the dragonfly the first day (Dragonfly Dreams and Triple Banner Punch were the featured products), the gingerbread man/reindeer the second day (Cookie Cutter Christmas set and builder punch), and the Daisy the last day (Daisy Delight set and punch / discounted bundle). I wanted to have make and takes that were cute, but quick and easy – Scrapfest attendees tend to be set on cruising all the booths, sometimes in a limited amount of time, or en route to a special class, so it’s good to have something that’s not too much brainwork. (OK maybe that last part was just for me….). I figure that people can take their make and takes and use them as tags for gifts, or stick them onto a cardfront or scrapbook page. Or hang them on the fridge. Whatever works.

Here’s a selfie attempt – that’s Arlene on the left of the picture and Anne on the right. Arlene is the only one who seems to know where to look when taking a selfie….and yes, we did fix the sign so it hung better than that…. I hope to be able to be at the next Scrapfest event – it’s always fun to meet new people and catch up with customers and friends who are getting a little crafty shopping time too! To those who requested to be added to my mailing list – I’ve finished that job earlier today and you should have received something from me already – please let me know if you didn’t get an email and wanted to be on the list! To those who requested catalogues – I’m working on confirming mailing addresses and getting things organized for mail out.

In the meantime – tomorrow brings Week 5 of the Twelve Weeks of Christmas to subscribers’ inboxes, and Wednesday is the weekly email….so I’d better get busy!
