I've been so excited to share what my friends Ann & Mary helped me make the night of my birthday, which also happens to be Halloween Eve (Yes, mischief night).
The three of us have a monthly playdate, and when they noticed it fell on my birthday they both asked if I was sure I wanted to keep our playdate. I said, of course, I was going to celebrate my day with my darling husband over the weekend, and I really look forward to my playdates with stampin friends! It's the ony time I get to 'play' and not work:)
The week of Halloween was very busy for me, gee what's knew you might be thinking… :) Anyway, I realized I had not made any Trick or Treat projects…. I thought, hum, do I really need to do it this year or can I just hand out candy? HORROR, just give out candy at my house without a FUN Stampin' Treat, na, that is totally impossible!
That day, I was surfing the web and I saw this adorable Trick or Treat idea that was do Doable!!! I would have time to create these I thought, but if I had 'four more hands' it would go MUCH quicker! Hence, this is where Ann & Mary came in:)
So I asked them if they minded making treats for the children, and they were welcome to take some home for their crowd too! Well, of course friends don't let you down, and they were just as excited as I was. Ann stayed late, but Mary stayed until 1:30 AM finishing up 175 of these critters! Neither of them would take any home until after Halloween to be sure I had enough to give out. Are they friends or what!??!
Below is one of many of my Halloween Critter Followings… AKA 'Friendly Groupies'.. tee hee
I LOVED the comments I received from my many 'groupies'! tee hee Here are a few things I heard, I started to write them down to blog, so I won't forget. They were so kind and priceless!!
- This was from a single Dad: I still have your Frankenstein on my Frig
- A little Girl: I tell my friends, we have to go back to that house every year
– A Mom: We love coming to your house every year
– A Dad: What did you create this year?
So as you can see, with all the FUN I have sharing my passion for creativity, I'll be sure to always make time to create a special Treat for my Halloween Critter Following.
And that is what Stampin' Up! is all about!
